After traveling for 3 months around the world - this place was a stand out for us. If your looking for a clean bed and bathroom, quiet room, GREAT included breakfast and a family owned guest house run by two of the sweetest people you will ever meet - Green Woods- Bethlehem is the place to be.
Upon arriving, we were greeted with big smiles and open arms from Sheeba and Ashley, the owners of the guest house. They offered us two different rooms, and as a first amongst our travels, they actually encouraged us to take the less expensive room (no AC) because they knew it was quieter and more comfortable than the AC option. This was a small but clear indication of their heart and character. And these qualities show up all over the property.
This husband and wife team run a small guest house within a 5 minute walk to the heart of Ft. Kochi. They put their heart and soul into the place and you feel it with the quaint but modest furnishings, you taste it in the food Sheeba prepares each morning and you see it in all the little things that Ashley does around the property to make you comfortable. They are also long time locals to the area and know all the best restaurants, where the best yet inexpensive Ayurvedic massage in town is (and it is!) and can give recommendations on where to go next and other good places to stay once you move on from Ft. Kochi. And most of all, they are so happy to help you in any way they can. The great thing about their place is you really feel like you are staying in a home as the place is extremely comfortable and relaxed (a rarity considering allot of what we experienced everywhere else in India).
They have a great little rooftop open air area where breakfast is served and the place is available for you for the rest of the day to hang out in, swing in the hammock, sit and read a book or look out at their trees and listen to the birds sing their songs for the day.
If you want MORE for your money than just a bed and bathroom - then come here as what they charge vs. all you get by staying in a place full of love and kind attention makes this the bargain of the century in all of India.
