Reviewed 23 September 2017 via mobile

We loved our 4 nights stay with Neema who went above and beyond to helps us in navigating our travel plans to our next destination.

Her homestay is an Old Historical house, with beautiful spacious rooms with wooden floors and ceilings. We are grateful that we got some days to spend in her wonderful property.

Now regarding food :

The breakfast was amazing and so very soon we booked a Cookery class with her. Her class was very interesting and we were able to meet people from different nationalites. Only six of us were there for that session. If interested just book in advance, as she gets booked up very fast.

Neema is very knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us to what to see. Home stay is a 5 min ferry ride away from Fort kochi. Our room Sao Gabriel was very spacious and comfortable.

Highly recommended.to all ages

We were a part of a group and 4 of us stayed at Neema's Bungalow home stay. Happy that we stayed there. Neema a wonderful host with lots of local knowledge. Rooms are really a gem, spacious with Wooden floors and heritage furniture.

We did take a cookery class at Neema's kitchen which ended with dinner. Both stay and the class are highly recommend.

Thank you Norma for such a memorable stay.

We stayed two nights and were overwhelmed by the warm loving care given by neema .it was a pleasure to escape the congested streets and hagglers of fortkochi for the relative calm of vypeen island and to have a more authentic keralan experience . The food was delicious -a very generous breakfast each morning and a beautifully served and delicious new years eve dinner. Neema and prasad are very helpful and willing to assist in whatever way possible.It was a pleasure to be welcomed as part of their family..

This was a very pleasant stay on our trip to Kochi. The Bungalow is a five minute ferry ride from Fortkochi to Vypin island. The neighbourhood is peaceful. Neema and her family was really kind and the rooms were too good.

We booked with Neema one month ago and she was very prompt in replying to our mails. So we found a friend in her before our arrival itself. As we were two couples, we booked the two heritage rooms for five nights along with two Cookery Lesson's with her. Being foodies we always make it a point to do a Cookery lesson if possible. No doubt Neema's class was the best. We really enjoyed her class, food and the stay. All in all a wonderful experience, never to be missed. Neema we will be back soon. Highly recommended to all ages!!!!

We stayed in this heritage property for five nights and we really loved the ambiance. The house is really good, it was built by Neema's Great grandfather and now she looks after this house. It's so nice we got a chance again to stay here.

If you planning to stay with her then its better to book in advance because she is just letting out 2 Heritage Rooms and it gets booked up very fast.

In short I can say that we loved our stay, food and her Cooking classes. So if ever you are going to stay with her then book the cookery course too, it's too good. Neema is a Gem.
