Welcome to my listings! I'm happy that you have found me here. I'm humbled to be a Superhost winner for 6 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 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 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....
