"Perfect Kerela Cooking"
Once you meet the family you can feel the warmth. They are very pleasant and nice. They are very well prepared. Once we got down to cooking, Mrs Nair went out her way to satisfy my culinary needs and based the entire week's cooking on what I wanted. Her incredible experience shows through immediately and it is a pleasure working with her.
All in all, a fantastic experience.

Thank you so much for making each moment so beautiful!! I had such a wonderful stay at Silverweed Homestay for one week. I come to Kerala twice a year so I wanted to get a different experience this time and I found it here. It was the right choice; I really enjoyed the mother's cooking. She prepared variety of delicious traditional meals everyday. I didn't expect to have a cooking lesson before I came here but I ended up taking 8 lessons in one week. These mother's recipes would be my life treasure. They always tried to make me comfortable. For example, I said I like fish in typical conversation and she prepared fried-fish for dinner even though they are purely vegetarian. They are punctual and have a warm hospitality, heart, and mind. I was very lucky to be able to come and stay with this lovely family. I highly recommend this place for all generations. I wish Silverweed Homestay a future filled with happiness!
Krishna and his lovely parents were exceptional hosts! We sincerely appreciated their warm hospitality and sense of humor. Krishna's mother won a statewide cooking competition recently and prepared a variety of delicious traditional meals for us. We enjoyed her private cooking class as well! Krishna helped us arrange a house boat tour, private yoga classes, and even cultural events in Kochi. The family is well connected to the community and was readily available to help us with everything, from directions to cutting up mango for us. The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable, with modern amenities. The home is within easy walking distance to all major attractions in Fort Kochi. We enjoyed chatting with Krishna and his parents and look forward to returning one day. I highly recommend this homestay for anyone looking for superb hospitality and the best food in Kochi!

The Silverweed Homestay was a very pleasant experience. The private home has just two rooms with a large quiet balcony. The couple who own the home were lovely people. It was a bit of a walk to the main touristy part of the town, but enjoyable. The only comment we had was that, although the homemade breakfast was delicious, there wasn’t enough.
