This is not just a bed room but a very spacious and beautifully furnished living space consisting of spacious bedroom , very large hall and two balconies. Situated close to road connecting Fort Cochin and Ernakulam city, the place is ideal for tourists as well as business travellers.

The space

The place is very spacious having an area as big as a small house(around 440 sq.mtrs. ( sorry no kitchen). Beautifully furnished and surrounded by different varieties of medicinal plants like neem ,nutmeg etc. Traditional tiled construction ensures very cool and comfortable ambience in all seasons.

Guest access

Tourist destinations in the heritage areas of Cochin like Mattancherry, Fortcohin and Business areas in Ernakulam are equidistant from the place. (around 7 KM).

Interaction with guests

As frequent as per the requirements of the guests.

Other things to note

Although we have kept the rent of the property low with a view to accommodate people of different economic backgrounds, guests should not view our place as mere cheap accommodation. We are highly selective in accommodating guests to ensure that only people compatible with our culture are hosted.

We have had a lovely stay a Rose Villa. We have stayed nearly 2 months. The listing is accurate and the house is very comfortable. It is large and spacious. The entire place and rooms have been recently updated. There is hot water for showering and a western toilet. The kitchenette is ample for simple meal preparation. The addition of a fridge in the kitchen area would be great, though. Each room has a fan and keeps you cool. One frustration we have had was the constant power outages that led to the loss of internet. There was a backup battery to help boost the power until the electricity was re-established. I work online so when the power is lost, so is the internet. Unfortunately, in the last 2 weeks, the battery died. That was an excellent support and I would encourage John to look at replacing the battery. The internet would probably be better positioned within the upstairs villas to give a better signal. John has been very helpful and accommodating of myself and my kids. He has opened up his house to my kids so they can walk TV many times. He helped organise lovely nannies and for that, I am very grateful. Any request has been fulfilled diligently. Unfortunately, our stay has been marred with illness so we have not been able to enjoy Kerala to its full potential. For food, it is a 2-minute walk to the many food establishments. Similarly, the bus and autos are in ample supply very close to the house. If you ask, John will help you with anything. Thank you, John and Matilda. I hope we can return later in the year.

If you are looking for an Airbnb place not a hotel, choose a place away from the touristic area. John's place is the perfect choice for who wants to feel at home, warm care of a local family but also get to the touristic attraction easily. John and Mary will not just regard you as a guest, they will make your holiday more than you expected. I had a memorable stay with my new family in Kochi, yummy breakfast, quiet village with lovely people. You can meet other travelers in other rooms, so you can share your itineraries or review of some places. I really wish I had more time there, hope to visit their place again very soon!!

We're two girls who travelled to Kochi for a weekend. John and Mary were lovely hosts and treated us like family. The location was also in also in a safe area easily accessible (by bus or auto) to Fort Cochin and other destinations around the island. No complaints, would highly recommend this stay!
