Rented the cottage and loved it. Super friendly hosts, Maryanne and Philip were great with the kids,and helped us organize the rest of the trip. Met people that know india well and always stay here when they come. Reds was a highlight of our trip to southern India.

Our hosts were friendly and helpful. 3 of us stayed in the 'penthouse' on the top floor. The air conditioning, fridge and comfortable beds made this a great start to our trip around Kerala. We were a short tuk tuk ride from all the places of interest. (We recommend the ginger cafe ice-cream as a must!) Our hosts also helped...

We stayed for two nights in this homestay. The room we had was small but served our purposes. Maryann and Philip were very charming and helpful hosts. We had tasty and plentiful breakfasts. Kochi itself it an interesting place to visit.

Maryann and Philip could not have been nicer or more helpful. Philip gave great advice on the rest of Kerala and directed me to other wonderful homestays. He says they visit the places they recommend once a year to make sure they are up to standard. Pretty amazing! The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and the breakfasts delicious. Incredible...

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Like most homestays, make sure that you bring toiletries. Also water here, as none is provided. Bear in mind that you will be charged an extra 400 per day to use air conditioning. It is easy to hail a rickshaw into the town centre and is...

Thank you for your kind words, wonder how you " missed out " the tissue rolls and soaps provided in the toilet. Yes AC is charged extra a small amount of Rs.400/- only, as your booking was for the base room only - via a site where it very clearly mentioned that AC facility comes at extra cost. Thanks once...
