It was around 6 am on one of the worst days in my life!! 14th day in Aster Medcity with my mum in the ICU. She went into a coma after a fall!! My frustration mounted and picked up the phone and called up the nearest HomeStay to Aster. Ben picked me up and took me to his family. Rest...

I have travelled to lots of countries but the experience in Bens Home stay was outstanding. There is no match to their personal attention, service and hospitality. We initially had a plan only for a day but then decided to extend for 3 days…a very wise decision. The house and the surroundings are very clean and tidy…Really enjoyed the backwater...

I traveled to Cochin to attend a workshop at Aster Medicity. Before leaving, I did some research which showed that Ben's Homestay was quite near to the venue and hence, I decided to try Ben's Homestay. Ben had arranged my transportation from the airport and personally welcomed me saying that I am to feel absolutely at home and I must...

A sudden change in our tour itinerary made us stay for a night at Ben's homestay, and it was the best ever decision taken. The place was amazing with amazing view of the backwaters. The lovely bungalow was very traditional but with all modern amenities. Best part was the bath area with no roof which for us first came as...

We stayed at Bens for 2 nights on the boat house. This boat house does not take you for a trip on the backwaters but a stagnant one close to the shores. What you get is a clean spacious room with a theme, which can accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids. You also get a beautiful view of the backwaters...

My wife Lucy and I had 2 nights at Ben's homestay but wish it had of been longer. Ben is an exceptional host that goes above and beyond the call of duty. His wife Anju is also an incredible cook and we thoroughly enjoyed her meals. We must do a cooking course with her next time!

House was very neat, Family members were very hospitable, location was excellent, food was very good. A good place to relax and do nothing. Walk in the coconut orchards, do fishing and take a boat ride.

My girlfriend and I were traveling from the US and stayed at Ben's Homestay for 2 nights last month - it's a gorgeous place in a calm and secluded area outside of Kochi. Ben and Anju (his wife) went out of the way to take care of us, including lending us his kayak and scooter to go around the island,...
