Welcome to my listings! I'm happy that you have found me here. I'm humbled to be a Superhost winner for 17 times in a row (2017 onward). I love history and love to communicate historical facts to the interested. I am a mother of two children-a son and a daughter, both of whom are married and settled abroad. I have a passion for understanding traditional practices and collecting artifacts. I teach social work discipline in a recognised college. I have enjoyed charting out programmes for teams of overseas professors and students visiting our campus. About my homes - 1. TJ’s Home stay is a rural experience dedicated to my parents Thankam & John who spent the last few years of their life in this property. I have preserved all the possible little things used by them which are more than 40 years old. 2. Prinsley's is the urban home that I live in Cochin. We've gradually built that space contemplating how to construct and what goes in every little nook and corner of this home. I am interested in involving guests where ever feasible into the socio-economic activities of the people and thereby acquire valuable village life experience. I like to do things differently but definitely keeping to the needs of the guests. Hoping to have a great time with you....

During your stay

I would make myself available during your stay. However, I live in Cochin, so my presence would be limited. My neighbors, Viji and Benny, are happy to assist you during the rest of the time.
Authentic Keralan breakfast would also be provided upon a nominal amount. The meals are prepared with organically grown local vegetables and fruits. You can choose what you'd like to have from Viji, our neighbor chef.
