Island Heritage Home, Fort Kochi

Charming Luxury B&B in a quiet area with a unique mix of architectural styles, serving delicious Kerala food.

INTRODUCTION

A tragic past is only one of the things that makes this Island Heritage Home different from any other Luxury Bed & Breakfast in Kochi, for that matter any other establishment. The house was built in 1930 for Mary, the eldest daughter of an important local family as her marriage gift. She died during childbirth just a few months later. Today it is the well kept home of descendants of the family and of course a splendid Luxury B&B in Kochi for the travellers. Neema, her parents, husband and daughter stay in the lower part of the house while the upper part is reserved for guests. Once her daughter started school, Neema couldn’t travel with her sailor husband. She started this beautiful Luxury B&B in Kochi to satisfy her wanderlust by meeting travellers. The atypical location is in Vypeen Island, a five minute ferry ride from Fort Kochi but a world away from the tourist heavy areas. The ferry is a regular inexpensive commuter service that takes cars and bikes too and runs from early morning to late evening.

ROOMS

The house is a unique mix of three styles, Portugese, Dutch and Kerala, one for each floor. The first floor has two sunny bedrooms accessed by the original wooden staircase with pretty latticework and a verandah. The top floor has an attic room to relax in. The entire upper part has wooden floors, antique furniture and knick-knacks like two ancient telephones, black and white photos. One bedroom is a double with an en-suite bathroom while the other is a twin room with a private bathroom just outside the room. Both rooms have air-conditioning on request for a small charge.

SERVICE

Neema’s food is part of the wonderful experience in this Luxury Bed & Breakfast in Kochi just like her warm hospitality and her ready help with itinerary planning. Guests are free to watch her in the kitchen and can even arrange a cooking class with her. This is another twist in the tale as her specialty is a rare style of Kerala cuisine with a Portuguese influence.

    We were fortunate to to stay and relax for a couple of days at The Bungalow. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Neema and her family. Their home is beautifully kept and our room, the São Gabriel, was clean and spacious, perfectly appointed for a family with a young child and too much luggage. Located less than five minutes from the Vypeen ferry docks with connections to Fort Kochi and Ernakulam, The Bungalow is close enough to major sites without the hassles of being in the midst of tourist hotspots. Neema\'s cooking is wonderful. We only got to savour two breakfasts, but the quality and quantity of the food was outstanding. She not only accommodated our request for an early start on our first morning, but also adapted her menu to suit our son\'s palate. Our one regret from our stay was that we did not have a chance to have dinner at The Bungalow.

    Quaint little homestay very close to Fort Kochi. The house is very well kept and the rooms are old fashioned because they have kept it in the heritage style. The wood is beautifully maintained and the antiques are well polished. It takes quite some effort to keep it so nice and clean.

    We found the trips by ferry from Vypeen to Fort Kochi fascinating as it is used mostly by locals. Got some great pictures. Neema is a wonderful hostess and fantastic cook. We regret missing out on the cooking class. If you have couple of extra hours, do walk around Vypeen. It has a different vibe from Fort Kochi. Less touristy. In Fort Kochi, we recommend Old Harbour Hotel if you want a special dinner.
