Excellent Homestay. This is the perfect homestay which I could find in Cochin, during my these many years of vacation. Run and managed by the Family members, Home made food served by the mother, especially the Lobster fry was very delicious. I enjoyed all traditional indian foods, prepared by their mother. The feast on the Banana leaf with 40 curries was really enjoyable. I still remember the the taste of the " fish fry with masala steamed in Banana leaf" which is available in this homestay.
