We were picked up at the airport by the hosts son and driven late at night to the home stay and dropped again to the airport at 6:30 am after having breakfast,
Beautiful clean room absolutely no problems.
Riverview was a great BnB. Martin, Beena and Rosy were great hosts and their son a delight. Martin was ever ready to provide his taxi for us to explore. Great place for peace and quiet though a fair distance from the action in Fort Kochy for independent travellers. Rosy is a great cook and provided great Kerala breakfasts.

I stayed with my family in this Home I would like to share all that this home stay is nice and located around 12 to 15 kms from the Cochin airport. This is a village which is very quiet ,calm and pollution free place to stay peacefully,relax& there is a river flowing at the backyard which is very beautiful I felt so good and happy, from this place to equal distance to these places.. It is hardly 30 to 35 kms to Fort kochi, Athirapally waterfalls ,Elephant training center,Cherai beach & birds sanctuary and they have provided the transportation with a reasonable rate.. Also very tasty kerala style homely food never had….so nice

The house was ok and the two ladies who hosted us were nice, but the location of the house was a nightmare. It was so far from everywhere and there were no buses back to the village after 4:00 pm. Just impossible to reccommend if you are interested in going to places like Kochin, Fort Kochin, Alleppuza etc. In order to watch the Kathakali performance, we had to stay in Kochin and make extra hotel payments This place can only be a good option for someone who wants to get away from life for some time.
I request you before booking first read Reviews and about our Homestay and Place Description and Homestay Concept ,we are very clearly mentioned Our Homestay Conveniently located Just 12 Km from Cochin International Airport with River Frontage in a Beautiful Village,.Dear Guest The Public Transportation Available From Morning 5.30 to 9 PM and Everything Possible,Please Try to get Truth-full information from Hosts from any where, some guest are choose on there way and they don't want share,and they get some improper information and guidance from others,We wish you the very best always.
The hosts threw a very warm welcome and made sure that we are able to locate the rather interior location. But it was worth the effort. Its a very serene hamlet with nothing but bird sounds. And the big river in the back yard makes it like a dream land.
Highly recommended for nature lovers. My son have a gala time going behind the chickens and running around the house.
We were late to the homestay but were made to feel very welcome. A big thank you for the airport transfer which was super early in the morning. Homestay was clean and food provided was delicious. Thanks again
