“A wonderful experience in Kerala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

We finished our trip to India with a two day stay at The Jasmin Villa and had a wonderful time. The villa is very clean and a 20 minute walk into Cochin, 2 minutes by Tuk Tuk. We had a cooking class with Jasmin from 6pm until 8.30pm and learnt many Keralan recipies. We were encouraged to participate in the class which helped with the learning and were given all the recipies to take away. At the end of the class we sat down to enjoy the excellent meal which Jasmin had prepared. I would suggest booking an AC room.

Room Tip: Best to book an AC room.

I stayed at Jasmin Villa by myself and both Stanley and Jasmin made me very welcome. Jasmin's cooking is absolutely wonderful, I haven't eaten so well before, and is a great way to try lots of different dishes from Kerala. It is a lovely house and a very nice room. Most importantly they both offered lots of help, advise and directions! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Staying at Jasmin Villa was awesome, if you like good food you will love it here. Jasmin is an amazing cook and she will stuff you with some of the best food you will eat in Kerala. For me it was some of the best food we ate in the south. The house is exceptionally clean and tidy. Both Jasmin and Stanley will take you under there wing and help make your stay great. Stanley owns a Stanley Wilson tours and he can make any kind of travel arrangements you need. Check out is reviews, they speak for themselves.

Lors de notre séjour à Cochin, nous avons logé chez Jasmin et son mari Stanley chez qui nous avons été très bien reçu. Nous y avons très bien mangé, merci Jasmin !! et Stanley nous a organisé un superbe tour dans cette belle région du Kerala. Tout avait été très bien organisé, quelqu'un nous attendait à l'aéroport à notre arrivée et Jasmin nous a accueilli avec des spécialités culinaires locales. Hum... un vrai délice :-) Je vous recommande vivement ce homestay.

During our holidays in Cochin, we stayed at Jasmin's and Stanley's homestay. We were very well welcomed and we ate very good indian food, thank you Jasmin !! Stanley organised us a wonderful tour in Kerala. All was very well organised, someone was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived and Jasmin welcomed us with typical indian food. Very nice :-) We really recommand this homestay.

My friend and I stayed at Jasmin Villa and took a half-day cookery class with Jasmin. The meals Jasmin cooked for us on the night before our class and the morning of our class were excellent - a feast of local specialities which made us even more keen to learn the recipes for ourselves!

Jasmin's cookery class was excellent - we were shown how to make several popular, traditional Keralan dishes and were also asked if there was anything we particularly wanted to learn how to cook. I highly recommend Jasmin's class as it was informative and fun.
