We initially thought we would stay in Fort Cochin as the tourist things are there. We are so glad we found Ben's Homestay instead! The beauty of Kerala is not in Fort Cochin, the beauty is in the tranquil islands and waterways, and we had that and much more at Ben's. We agree with the other recent reviews, Ben, his...

I stayed here in November for a training in Aster Medcity. This place is just at stone's throw distance from the hospital. The best thing about this place is the hospitality. Its beyond measure. Its better than any 4-5 star hotel I have ever stayed. Ben and his family ensure to provide the best hospitality and family like environment. The...

We traveled with family to this place during January and I can bet we were transported to a different world. Idyllic Periyar backwaters, Chinese fishing nets, lazy country boat kayaks, walk through a typical christian kerala village and a guided visit to Benny's Shrimp farm were the key attractions. You can travel to Kochi and Benny helps you with people...

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...
