There were some initial glitches as we had booked for two rooms even though there was only one room that was available. But it was sorted out by John in a prompt manner. Apart from that, the whole stay was pleasant. Both of them were great hosts.

We checked in with our parents at John and Mary's place in Feb. Since we were not familiar with Kochi, we were a bit apprehensive about John's property and the location in general. Our fears appeared unfounded as John and Mary went above and beyond in helping us navigate Kochi as well as understand some of the cultural norms. Always caring and very insightful! The place was super clean and Mary's garden downstairs is a nice little green place you can find quiet comfort. The house is close to the main road yet, quiet and residential. Set in a lush green setting, you can enjoy the cool breeze when you open up the doors and windows upstairs. For a quick and delicious Kerala food indulgence, The vegetarian Coffee house is located within walking distance and you can sit back and enjoy some steaming idlis, savory dosas with a cup of joe. John was always there to help us when we had questions. He was kind enough to arrange taxi service for us during our stay and was patient with us! My parents thoroughly enjoyed living there and were thrilled to have the company of John and Mary. We look forward again to visiting them. It felt as if we were visiting our long lost family in Kochi!

Thank you so much for your generous review Kamila. The fact is that we did not get sufficient time to spend with you. Really humbled by your words. Convey our regards to your friends. Hope your yoga classes proceeds fine. Thank you. John and Mary

A lovely spacious house. The description they have written for the house is true to the smallest details. This helped the group feel settled in a new city! In the house, the garden and veranda were highlights for my group. We couldn't stop admiring it and taking pictures there! John and his wife, Mary were very considerable hosts. They were really helpful in sharing knowledge about local history, public transport, food etc. We felt taken care of and safe with them as our hosts. Thank you!
