M13405, the beautiful home of Byju and Lyma is located on the banks of the backwaters, in Kumbalangi village about 10 Km on the outskirts of Kochi (Cochin). Set in rustic, sylvan surroundings, the house is well connected to the heritage zone of Fort Kochi and Mattancherry. This is the ideal home for someone looking for a quite retreat near Kochi - not too far from the city but away from the noise and pollution. The food is cooked in true Keralan style by Lyma and there is a wide selection to choose from in case you decide to eat with the family. The house itself is tiled and constructed in the Keralan style. The small garden slopes gently away into the backwaters.
The farmland around the house has coconuts, areca nuts, mangoes in profusion - 12 varieties in all - pepper, pineapple and mangroves, besides various medicinal plants. But the most prized possession is a 200 year -old mango tree called "Chandanakaran" locally, which incidentally is the biggest tree in the village. The rustic charm of this village ambience is sure to leave an indelible impression as you say goodbye to Kochi - the queen of the Arabian Sea. This homestay gives an opportunity to understand local culture & keralan family life. The participation of local people are involved in the ecotourism activities.
