  • Sono sta molto bene a Coconut Grove. Antony and Rinchi sono degli ottimi padroni di casa, premurosi e discreti. Rinchi mi ha molto aiutata ad organizzare escursioni nei dintorni di Kochi. La posizione della casa è centralissima, dentro il tranquillo e raffinato villaggio di Fort Kochi. Colazioni ottime e pulizia impeccabile! Lo consiglio vivamente! Grazie Antony and Rinchi!!!

  • Antony and Rincy are very friendly and caring hosts. They made our stay very pleasant. The room and bathroom were ultra clean. Place is walk able distance from beach. Quiet neighborhood with many restaurants around. They even let us use the room beyond check out time as it was not occupied.

    Manoj2015-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Neues sauberes Zimmer mit Bad in sehr ruhiger Wohngegend. Antony und seine Familie haben uns sehr gut aufgenommen und viele Hilfestellungen wie Taxibeschaffung und Tipps für Unternehmungen gegeben. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

  • Wonderful room and very kind and generous hosts in a great location just blocks from the Sea. The hosts were very pleasant to interact with and very helpful with navigating town and finding transportation to the airport after my stay.

    Keith2018-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay with Antony & Rincy. Clean room, nice family, great breakfasts...what more can I say.

    Bob2016-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Det kändes bra att komma tillbaka till Antony och Rincy igen efter att ha rest runt på andra ställen. De är vänliga och hjälpsamma och serverar fantastiskt god frukost och även lunch/middag om man ber om det. Jag rekommenderar varmt att bo hos dem om du/ni ska besöka Fort Kochi.

    Hello everyone Sea hut is a home stay with 4 independent double bed rooms on a common veranda.The room has a king size double bed and an aircon in it. Its a perfect retreat for tourist who want to run away from the hectic city's.
    Sitting on the wooden pavement of "OUR SEA HUT". Mild sunray's, mild breeze flowing across my face, listning to the sound of the ocean whispering to come closer to it. A home which reminds you of the years old heritage. a place which doesnt need any technologies to keep you engrossed. the nature alone takes to a different world. a world away from noise and pollution. the house is enveloped in the beauty of the ancient times. the architecture designs and the pillars take you back to those times when the ancient kings used to reside. The main attraction is the backyard of this place. A huge background where children can play on the sand the house has indoor open veranda to enjoy the calmness. there is a particular feel which takes you out of your world of worries and into a calm surrounding. Where you forget everything and lay back to enjoy the calmness Surrounded by sea on the background which keeps calling you to come and see how she dances and sing. sometimes it also shows how her sea-children the dolphins play and jump in the (Website hidden by Airbnb) sunrise and the sunset always surpises you with a different story they tell you An excellent place to enjoy your vacation with the traditional kerela food. A complete privacy once you enter this place. Its a HOME away from HOME, and as they say nothing like HOME.
  • Sono stati dei giorni indimenticabili! Emma, la mamma, Sarath, il figlio, e il papà e l'altra sorella, insomma, tutta la famiglia sono stati super accoglienti. Sempre pronti a rendere il nostro soggiorno facile e organizzato. Ci hanno aiutato con le prenotazioni dei treni e con tutte le attività che abbiamo voluto fare. Era la prima volta che viaggiavamo con i due figli e il piccolo ha solo sei anni. All'inizio ero un po' in ansia ma sinceramente i bambini sono stati benissimo e io mi sono sentita protetta, accompagnata e sicura senza mai essere invasa. Tutto è andato splendidamente!! Emma mi ha preparati delle cenette deliziose e per il piccolo senza peperoncino. Ogni volta che avevamo bisogno di un chai per fare una pause è sempre stata disponibile. Le stanze pulitissime e le pulizie tutti i giorni con il cambio della biancheria una volta alla settimana. Insomma, perfetto!! Sinceramente lo consiglio a tutti, soprattutto a chi viaggia con bambini e non si sente di partire troppo alla ventura ma nello stesso tempo vuole vivere un'esperienza locale vera e non turistica. Ci siamo veramente sentiti tuie molto coccolati e protetti.

  • ..very friendly, helpful hosts, wonderful location and tasty food :-)) ,, many greetings from germany :-))

    Karen2014-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an oasis. I first walked in, down a path covered by layered vines of passionfruit, took off my sandals to enter the open air hallway, and in front of me is a man gently raking the sand, perfectly flat, around palm trees and quiet large hammocks. The sound of the ocean, just up a short deck behind rocks, is constant and lulls you to sleep at night. You can visit her waves any time you like. When the monsoon rains come the droplets fall from the roof into the sand to make polka dot puddles. I adore the family that runs the homestay. Such kind people, through and through. I had to go to the eye doctor and they made me an appt, took me there, waited for me to make sure I understood how the process worked. I felt at home, grateful, peaceful.

    Denise2016-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • One of the better hosting experiences I've had with AirBnB. The high reviews are warranted here. You'll rarely meet such a genuinely warm family - ever. So amicable and lovely. Very helpful. They also get all the touches of making your stay comfy. Fully working AC, separate fan, no holes in the mosquito net beds, super clean everything. Mom is a good breakfast cook. Sharath is smart and easy-going. Unlike many even nicer hotels in India and just about every driver - car or tuk tuk, they don't push extra travel services at all. I 100% trust their word. Such a relief. And you'll not find something 'on the beach' like this anywhere near this price range. There's a sea wall the gov puts up, but walk up the plank in the front yard and the open Indian sea is on full display to gaze at. I even saw dolphins swimming in the morning. It's totally quiet, only the waves, quietly on the other side of the breaker rocks. Palms and hammocks and sand in the front yard. A friendly dog. And once the new room is done, it does have a 2nd floor with tranquil views of the sea. I was 100% pleased with and gratified with this place. No brainer, stay here!

    Rebecca2015-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Superbe experience ds cette guesthouse. Cette petite famille est d'extreme gentillesse. La chambre etait propre et comfortable, et le jardin avec hammak et balancoire tres relaxant. Petit dejeuner de la region de Kerela preparer maison par Hemma ! J'espere pouvoir un jour revenir. Bonne localisation aussi un peu en dehors du brouhaha de la ville. Environ 50 rupees en rickshaw.

    Marie2014-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Seahut home stay is most definitely a highlight from our stay in Kochi. Situated right by the sea, waking up to the sound of the waves each morning was a delight and even more so was the delicious breakfast and dinners. The whole family were very humble and hospitable, always willing to help with any of our questions. We are very lucky for the opportunity to stay here as it was our last stop in India and a great way finish our trip.

    Bonnie2014-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in the Sea Hut Villa. Sharath and his family took a good care of us during our stay. The Sea is right on the other side of the wall access by a small wooden ramp. We loved sitting here in the late afternoon and watch Dolphins! Would love to stay here again if we come back to Kochin.

    Tasnuva2015-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful introduction to India here, spending lazy days in the hammocks and walks around the local area, fort kochi. The family were warm, welcoming, helpful and most importantly, honest. They gave us great tips on what prices we should expect to pay, and even loaned us some small change, as they warned that people would refuse to give change to tourists. Thank you for everything!

  • It's good to have such a good host....he helped me with everything I needed....the room is easy to locate and is in the best condition....very good for a stay either family or couples....thanks arun

    Sachin2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • It is good place to stay with all the conveniences you need while you stay...Arun has been detailed to such an extent that we did not bother to ask where is the key or the tv remote or the wifi located or how do we switch it on....He has been so detailed that he has preempted the guests need..We were not inconvenienced at any point of time...Yes one thing we would mention if you order for (Website hidden by Airbnb) prepared to wait beyond usual as the order takes long to reach..Best is to walk to the nearest outlet and buy food and come... This was what we did..For breakfast and lunch also there are these small traditional eating outlets which serve you quality food....The groceries are nearby so you do feel at home ...And the location is not a problem for the private taxis to reach..All in all we were fully satisfied and have no hesitation in recommending Arun's pad......

    Srividya2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Arun's place is wonderful and we had a very pleasant stay there. Arun was always available for any help and guidance we needed. The place is very central and very convenient. Also very clean and very well maintained. Transportation is easily available. The apartment has all the necessities for a very comfortable stay.

    Indi2017-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • (Quite a detailed review, so at the end is a shorter overview) As a couple, We are spending 2017 travelling up and down India, so we decided to book a private airbnb to start us off and get us settled. We saw the listing for this airbnb and it offered exceptional value... and what we received was service that still would have been good value even if we had paid double! Arun first collected us from the airport and drove us to his airbnb which was a huge relief because the shock of stepping out of the airport almost became overwhelming. Once we arrived, he took us on a tour of the apartment and left us to sleep after a long flight. Arun waited for us for a couple of hours after agreeing a time to wake up, so that we could be taken on a tour of the local area. He helped us set up our mobile phones with Indian SIM cards and showed us to a couple of recommended eateries. He at no time asked for any extra money but we felt his introduction was so positive that we asked him to allow us to take him for lunch. He checked up on us over the course of our stay and he even called a couple of times to talk about the cricket as the IPL had just started and I wanted to watch. The apartment was very clean, it had all of the important amenities and the door staff where extremely helpful and friendly; they arranged yoga classes for us, helped us order takeout and even offered to buy things from the store on our behalf if we needed anything. The location is fantastic. A short drive to Fort Kochin but quiet and tucked away. Some fantastic restaurants in walking distance. TLDR: Overall an incredible airbnb at incredible value. Friendly host, clean apartment, great location. Would 100% recommend.

    Catherine2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Mr.Arun was a great host. His responses to queries were immediate and was willing to offer all help to make our stay a memorable one. The apartment is great compact and neat for 3 persons. Well furnished and has all things required to make you stay comfortable. the location is great. Uber, Ola and autos are available at any point in time. Just 3 kms to city center. The stay was memorable and would recommend every one to try this. I will for sure use the facility next time when I am in Kochi. Could not meet Arun but would have loved to. Had a good chat with him. Value for money is very high

    Sundar2016-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • !!! Just book it !!! Look no further. Fantastic all inclusive place at a very reasonable price. Can't ask for more. Arun was very responsive and kept deligently checking if we were comfortable. Checkin guide/manual has been meticulously prepared. Appreciate the effort !! Upmarket residential area of panampally Nagar with plethora of food home delivery options across cuisines. Self sufficient kitchenette if you wish to cook. Stayed with my parents and they were thoroughly impressed. Will not stay anywhere else next time.

    Sujir2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Best points: a) All the amenities needed(Ironing, toiletries, Coffee, Sugar, Utensils, AC, Study Table, Sofa, Home Theater, washing machine etc etc) available b) Very responsive team c) Very Clean Environment d) Good place to visit all the nearby places in Kochi e) Very Economical Overall a must go place

  • Clean, secluded and A great place to unwind with the continuous sound of the waves crashing against the walls of the property. One of the sweetest hosts you could ever meet. I am staying only here everytime I come to Kochin

    Prasanth2017-08-17T00:00:00Z

  • Wir haben unsere Zeit im Sea Hut sehr genossen. Die Familie ist sehr nett und hilft dir. Nachts hört man das Meer rauschen und auf den Klippen kann man Delfine sehen. Wenn ich wieder mal in Kochi bin gehe ich bestimmt wieder ins Sea Hut

    Ursi2016-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Sharath and her family are truly genuine, showing Keralan hospitality at its best. I loved hearing the sound of the ocean while swinging on their hammocks...such relaxation and close enough to Fort Kochi while still feeling removed from the noise. The atmosphere of their home is unbeatable and charming, and the breakfast is one that I'll remember for a long time... Don't miss out on this hidden gem!

    Located in the breezy heart of Fort Cochin, the Peniel Residency is an amazing place for your vacation.The guests are provided with the best of services and the facilities. The place is neither too vast to lose your way to give all that u need.
  • Ho apprezzato la presenza di una bella bottiglia di acqua nella stanza e della carta igienica, non scontata in India. La casa era molto silenziosa e ben ubicata per girare forth cochi a piedi. L'atmosfera molto familiare e collaborativa mi ha fatto sentire sicura e tranquilla negli spostamenti visto che viaggio da sola. Buono il rapporto qualita' prezzo, forse una colazione più variegata ed abbondante sarebbe stato un tocco di eccellenza.

    Angela2016-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place is in great location with walkable distance to fort kochi area and beach. The owner were very helpful and always interested to chat and provided good South Indian homemade breakfast. Size and facilities in bathroom were a bit disappointing but given the extremely cheap price it was acceptable.

    Gaurav2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Joice's place was extremely clean. Her and her family were extremely helpful and friendly and were always around to answer questions if need be. Breakfast was your typical South Indian kind and it was delicious. If you're looking for a very homely and quiet place that's still close to the sights (and sites) of fort kochin, this is your place.

    Jackson2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Peniel residency was outstanding! I was able to celebrate both my birthday & Onam festival with the family! They made me feel at home & comfortable and went out of their way multiple times to ensure our stay was great! The breakfast is amazing Keralan style, the rooms are clean & beautifully decorated. There is a nice area for lounging and doing yoga in the back! Plus awesome location!

  • Joice, Roy, Nick, and Mia are a unique team who run their home like an incredibly efficient hotel. No sooner had we arrived at the airport, and already they had arranged for a driver to pick us up and bring us to their residence. They provided for us in every possible way, and assisted us in all of our needs as residents and tourists for the first time. They made us feel immediately like family, and their hospitality knew no limits. They are incredibly warm, kind, and giving hosts, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them. heartily recommended.

  • Riverside Heritage Bungalow was a great place from which to visit the Biennale, but at the same time have a quiet refuge away from it. The traditional architecture of the main house was beautiful, as well as the cottage with rooms in the back. It was great to wake up surrounded by palm trees and the sunlight streaming in. It really is right on the river, and nothing beats sitting on a bench looking out at the Chinese fishing net and boats!"

In the backyard you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets facing the Riverside, one of the most beautiful and peaceful scenario I've ever seen, and in the morning you'll be treated with a delicious traditional breakfast prepared by Annie! Totally recommended

  • We arrived at Basil's with my wife feeling sick for our last few days in India. This was such a quiet, clean and lovely place to stay and to recover. Basil was very helpful, accomodating and understanding. We would recommend this place to stay to explore the area.

  • Though I was thousands of miles from my place of origin, Basil and Anni made me feel 100% at home in their abode. The breakfasts were delicious, the view from the backyard picturesque and Basil went out of his way to ensure I secured safe transport to all that I wanted to see in Kerala. Nandi to you, Basil and Anni! I hope to see you both again soon.

  • Basil and his wife are amazing hosts. They make your stay as comfortable as possible. They arrange Tours, cabs and everything you need. The Breakfast was great. Cleanest room we had in India!

    My place is close to the sea. You’ll love my place because of the views and the people. My place is good for solo adventurers.
    Sea hut is the only homestay in kochi which is right on the ocean. And you could sleep hearing the waves. And where you can see the sunset on your backyard. And where you can see the dolphins playing around in the ocean. Our place is very silent and peaceful and is off the busy streets of kochi and its just 3km( less than 10min) to all the main tourist attractions. And we have 4 hammocks for the lazy ones who likes to relax or to finish a book.. Sea hut is one of its kind... Come and stay with us to experience it.
  • This is an awesome homestay. If you want to relax or chill out, the sound of the crashing waves will definitely help while you lie in a hammock. The staff are the best you can get. Anthony and Hema are excellent hosts. My one month stay gives them ten out of ten! 😀

    Kevin2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at the sea hut was better than I imagined. The photos don't do the place justice. I arrived right off my flight and the family welcomed me with open arms. They arranged a taxi from the airport as well. The taxi was little bit expensive but worth it. The wifi wasn't very good but it didn't matter. It took me a couple of days to fully "arrive" from jet lag but everyone was very sweet and fed me and let me be in my process haha! I would stay here again. It's safe, clean, and peaceful♥

    Lila2017-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing familly will make you feel like you are one of them ;) Very friendly and welcoming, will help you with any trouble;) Great place with private spot for waching delfins, sand on the grounds and hammock....what ealse do you need for relaxing holiday?? Very good room at affordiable price!! Highly recomended!!

    Magdalena2016-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place is wonderful with the sea as the backyard, a sandy area with hammocks, place to sit around and lounge with the sea breeze on your face. Highly recommended for a peaceful and tranquil stay so close to Fort Kochi The hosts were wonderful and helpful and the daily breakfast was the cherry on the top :)

    Savant2017-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just the minimum but perfect to stay few nights! Very kind family around!

    Arnault2018-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • I loved the sea hut! It was the perfect location and the food was wonderful.

    Katie2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • wow! you literally walk across a soft, sandy yard or hammocks, up a wooden stairway to the sea crashing against rocky embankment. what a way to awake & sleep. super clean, incredibly friendly & inviting family, other great guests. its far enough to feel isolation & peace, close enough to get into town in a heartbeat. & unlike me, remember that breakfast is even included! they were incomparably accommodating (even made me breakfast late b/c i worked into the morning). the only real challenges were 1) wifi was bit slow in my room but you shouldnt waste time on wifi or in the room at this place! 2) the hammocks & sea view made it hard to ever leave & see the city! (which isnt really a shortcoming)

    Aj2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to feel a part of a family and welcomed with love, this is the place for you. Simple, clean, sound of ocean, homey and intimate, this is a safe home base for your explorations of Kochi.

  • Da raccomandare. Un prezzo contenuto per una stanza superiore alle attese

    Claudio2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space which we stayed in for just one night. Super value and in a lovely area.

    Catherine2018-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Super séjour dans cette grande maison. La propriétaire est très compréhensive et à fait tout le nécessaire pour que notre installation soit au mieux avec notre petite fille. la maison est top, située dans une petite rue. Par contre se servir de uber pour se déplacer. Il y a peu de tuktuk dans le secteur. Nous recommandons ce logement sans hésiter.

    Jean2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super tolle und saubere Unterkunft mit allem was man benötigt. Die Küche ist super eingerichtet und auch sonst mangelte es an nichts. Der Hauskeeper Bimal war sehr freundliche und hilfsbereit. Und Vivi die Besitzerin hilft wo sie kann. Ich habe mich sehr, sehr wohlgefühlt und kann die Unterkunft weiterempfehlen. Ich werde mit Sicherheit wieder kommen!

    Anna-Lena2018-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house in Ernakulam with a delightful caretaker from Sikkim. The amenities are all great and breakfast is included. There is plenty of good local Keralan food within walking distance so if you are looking for the tapioca beef biryani you don't have to go more than a couple blocks. The one thing that was peculiar about this airbnb is that the caretaker lives 3 states away so don't expect to find her at or near the location. The plus side of this is that you and the other residents really feel like you have your own little house. Fort Kochin and other tourist locations are easy to reach by Uber and the neighborhood is posh and safe. Being Kerala the food is also safe and clean most everywhere you go.

    Alexander2018-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amandaville feels right at home and thats one of the reasons for my re visit. Place is clean, well maintained and brilliant. Caretaker is so helpful and welcomes you with a smile. I was staying in Gujarat themed room as before and it was sparkly clean with necessary towels, soaps etc all ready. The place is in Panampilly with Uber available all the time. Always a pleasure staying here.

    Arjun2018-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Vivi was amazing! Her place is lovely, a very stylish home in the hearth of one of the nicest neighborhoods in Kochi! Also Bimal, the care taker was there helping for everything I needed. The location is a bit far from old Kochi but easily reachable by cab. It really was a great experience!

Aaron is very friendly and helped us book a cab for the morning after. Location is convenient to visit Kochi, we went to the fishing nets by walk and there are lots of places to eat nearby.

  • I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience at David's Villa. The room was perfectly clean and spacious, the location was wonderful, and Sam was a gracious and kind host. I had a lovely breakfast each morning and great conversation with him. He gave me a lot of information about Kochi! I highly recommend this homestay!

    Danielle2016-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Sam's place. It's perfectly located, spacious and clean. Right around the corner you have the amazing Katakali Theater, which is a must see and other great sights. Sam was so nice to get us tickets for that and he had also answers to all our questions. I can highly recommend this place, and not only because of the perfect starting point to your tour through beautiful Kochi. We would always come back! And thank you so much Sam for the delicious breakfast!

    Miriam2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Although I ended up having to cancel my booking as my plans changed, Sam was extremely helpful and accommodating in planning to stay. I hope to stay next visit to India.

    Millie2014-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is very bare bones. It's in a great location and pretty clean and not uncomfortable. But if I go back, it might not be my choice given how many different homestays there are in the town, including many that offer breakfast and other amenities for only a tiny bit more money. I recommended to the host that he explain the shower situation in his description—like most homes in Kerala, this room has a cold water shower and then hot and cold taps that run into a bucket that you use to bathe. I should also note that while I only got a couple mosquito bites, the screens on the windows are not really fine enough to keep mosquitos out, and the mosquito net, which looks difficult to put up, is made up of the same material. So in a wet time of year, it might not provide enough protection. To be fair, I went with a particularly budget room on purpose because I knew I'd want to travel around the region and I wasn't sure what my dates would be so I had to overbook just to make sure there was a room if I needed it. And the host was very friendly. I imagine that if I'd had more time in town, he would have been a great person to ask for restaurant recommendations. If you're really concerned about price, this might be a good option for you.

    Georgia2013-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I was for one day in kochi and the room was great! Sam and his wife were very nice, the room was komfortable and you have all what you need. Come and enjoy!

    Meike2013-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sam est un très bonne hôtes , il nous a fournis toutes les informations pour les visites autour du logement… Il était même présent tout le matin avec un petit déjeuner express pour nous avant qu'on aille prendre le train… Logement que je recommande vivement pour visiter fort Cochin

    Raibed2016-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sam was a wonderful host. He welcomed us in the middle of the night, prepared us a really good breakfast form kochi and advised us on the different things to do :) we definitely recommend him for a stay in Kochi!!

    Sébastien 2015-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Sam is a very kind person. Although I arrived a bit later then expected, he welcomed me with a smile on his face. The room is clean and spacious and the location is very good, barely couple minutes from the center. Sam provided me with the breakfast as well. I would definitely stay at his place again.

    Our home is on the bay just across the river from Fort Kochi, nestled in a quiet residential area of colonial Cochin. With a quite beach, beautiful lanes and Chapels it is ideal for a calm and relaxed holiday. It's our dream house which we built as our vacation home. A short 5 min ferry ride takes you into the heart of Fort Kochi with it's historic places and restaurants all within walking distance. It is in the heritage zone of 'Our Lady of Hope Church' (built 1604 AD).
    It's a Spanish Colonial style house with french windows all through the house. With back patio and front courtyard, the house has an airy outdoor living experience. The living room has an open concept with a sofa-cum bed. You can go fishing, relax on an uncrowded beach, view an amazing sunset, watch fishermen working with their Chinese fishing nets, see ships cruise through mouth of the bay or just go for a leisurely stroll through the by-lanes. An easy 10 minutes drive takes you to Marine Drive, center of Cochin city.
    Our home is on the bay just across the river from Fort Kochi, nestled in a quiet residential area of colonial Cochin. With a quite beach and beautiful by-lanes, it is ideal for a calm and relaxed holiday. It's like a quaint little village but just a stone's throw away from Fort Kochi and Kochi city. We have a small beach that is almost private (only neighborhood residents use it). A short 5 min ferry ride takes you into the heart of Fort Kochi with it's historic places and restaurants all within walking distance. The backwaters of Cherai are also easily accessible.
  • This house is by far the best place I have ever stayed, even homily than my own home. The kitchen has every damn thing you need. The bathroom are so beautiful (don’t take this wrong) but you feel like staying there all day. The thing they say Home away from home! That’s just a statement, is better than a home

    Pallavi2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really cool in a friendly neighborhood and ideal for travelers with out a packed schedule. The care taker Mr.Pias is very friendly and helpful and Ms.Lynette had been caring too. Taking a ferry to Fort Kochi (5 minutes in the Ferry operated by Kochi Municipal Corporation) is a good option for easy and cost effective commute.

    Balachandran2017-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place is awesome . More beautiful than what can be seen on pics. Thanks for everything.

    Swetha2017-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tamara is a fantastic place and apt for visitors looking for a cosy, quiet, family-friendly space in Cochin. It is at Vypeen and away from the commercial bustle of Fort Cochin, yet not inaccessible. The house is adequately stocked. We (couple) enjoyed every minute of the stay- starting from the check-in to the checkout. Lynette, our host, contacted me right after the booking and made it easy to locate the place. The caretaker Mr.Pious is extremely helpful. Since we celebrated my partner's birthday, I had requested him to buy a cake for us. We reached late night but he still was up waiting for us. The neighborhood is quiet and non intrusive. The house is beautifully decked up and shows our host's eye for detail. The room and living area were spacious. The terrace gives a good view of the jetty. The kitchen is extremely well stocked, one can bake a cake, cook a full course meal. Overall, it's a very comfortable house, you can feel at home.

    Simha2017-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lynette's house in Vypin is beautiful. It is clean and spacious, and the location is very good - although there is little in Vypin, it is a 5 minute walk to the ferry to Fort Cochin where there is plenty to do, with many good restaurants. The ferry takes only a few minutes and costs just 3 rupees, so you can easily do multiple trips in a day if you wish. The neighbor Mr Pious made the check in very easy - although the house is down a winding narrow street at the tip of Vypin, he met the Uber at the ferry parking to guide him within a few meters of the house, and the same for leaving. We didn't really need him other than that during our short stay, but he lives right next door and seemed like a very helpful and lovely person. A couple of comfort comments for westerners who may consider booking. At this time of year it is getting pretty hot in Kochi, and although the bedroom has A/C which works very well, the rest of the house does not, and gets very hot, and even with the fans running constantly it never really cooled down in the 2 days we were there enough for us to really spend any time outside of the bedroom. Secondly, we have travelled all over India in the last 3 months, and we get it that the preferred mattress type is thin and hard, but this was easily the hardest bed we have slept on in those 3 months.

    David2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great weekend stay at Lynette's house. The place is very well maintained, lots of light and well designed. We like cooking, so for us the kitchen was great, had almost every utensil we needed. Lynette and the caretaker both are very helpful, they also helped us arrange for airport cab late-night / early morning (Website hidden by Airbnb) Fort kochi is 5 mins ferry ride from the jetty. Only thing is that if you need to book an Uber/Ola you will have to walk to the jetty area ( 300mtrs), as the road near the house is a bit confusing to guide the cab driver.

    Rajat2018-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • We have had a great week in Tamara the location allowed us to visit several places easily using buses and ferries, the house offered such a comfortable spacious home to return to. We did struggle to find more than the most basic food shopping and restaurant options and some notes to help guests would be useful, maybe a book that guests can add hints for others. We were delighted to have a washing machine. The kitchen is well equipped. We were sorry not to meet Lynette but Pious and his wife next door were warm and helpful in sorting out anything we needed.

    Mike2018-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful. Walking distance to the beach. The car parking is little away from the property however is safe. The stay was very peaceful. The kitchen has everything you might need to cook.

  • Linda e la sua famiglia sono persone molto gentili, fanno di tutto per far sentire gli ospiti come a casa! Da provare assolutamente la sua cucina, i suoi piatti sono prelibati!

    Giuseppe2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at LINDA'S place. we highly recommend you yo stay wih her. Also you should have lunch or dîner with her as she makes great Keralan food. Don't hesitate to ask her what you wish to book (backwaters/tours...) of you are precise she will find you the best option /price. Very good price/quality rooms if you stay at KOCHI.

    Stéphanie2016-10-17T00:00:00Z

    Tobias2016-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed with Linda for three nights. We arrived in Kochi at 4am and Linda allowed us to have an early check in. Breakfast was great, a variety of Indian food each day. Rooms were clean with air con and towels were also provided. Linda and her family were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend staying with Linda 😊

    Lisa2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Linda is one of the warmest people we have met during our time in India. She made us feel like family and took good care of us. There was a slight problem with the Airbnb booking and we ended up with a too small room, but Linda took care of it with no haste. Her place is in a good location, within easy walking distance of Kochi's sight. We recommend this place.

    Randall2016-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was perfect. Linda was very warm and helpful with everything that we asked for. The breakfast was exceptionally tasty. I would recommend this place in Fort Kochi and the delicious home cooked food!

  • Manu is a wonderful wonderful host. We felt more like friends than "paying customers". We would gladly welcome stay there again were really sad to leave. If you have a chance to stay here do not pass it up. Delightful!

  • The Backwater Farmhouse was one of the nicest places where we've stayed in India. The cottages have lake view, where you can watch fisherman go by and enjoy the serene atmosphere. If you want to relax and chill out, this really is the place to be! It really clean. The food they cook is excellent and Manu, the host, is probably the most relaxed guy we've ever met ;) There is a boat trip included and you can also sail you're own little boat out on the lake. It's handy to have your own transport to visit places in the area, but if you don't have that they're more than willing to help you rent a scooter or tell you how to get somewhere by public transport or ricksha. They also have a scooter for rent. The place is near some nice beaches and about 35 min. (with scooter) to Fort Cochin. We will definitely stay here again and love to come back!

  • It has been a misfortune that we didn't get a chance to meet or get hosted by Manu. But We were treated warmly by Manu's brother Aby and his wife Jisha. The place is beautiful and in a lovely un-touristy part of Kerala where you can just sit and relax. very peaceful and romantic. Me and my wife will never forgot our 1st wedding anniversary trip. Aby is also a wonderful host but i would like to say something about Jisha (aby's wife) "what a wonderful cook she is"... we enjoyed food at the farm house - very tasty food. all the people at the farmhouse were very nice and treated us like a family member. About the place and room - The Place is beautifully situated in the backwaters with great view - greenery, the sunset, diff' birds and lot's more. Typical wooden and village home shaped farmhouse is big and clean. I would like to suggest that all the working professionals to take a break from your hectic life and visit Manu's farmhouse and get rejuvenated. this is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the nature. Thank you Manu, Aby for the comfortable stay at BWFH.

  • we absolutely enjoyed our stay at manu's place. the peace and quiet - apart from a massive thunderstorm - was exactly what we craved after having travelled through the north of india for a few weeks. our room was clean and had a great veranda to hang out and enjoy the view. the food is delicious and from my understanding typical for the region - lot's of fish - YUMM! manu organised everything we needed, like a boat trip and transport. i would recommend this place highly if tranquility is what you are after.

    Petra2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific. Loved our four nights here. Great view of clean lake, wonderful bird life, comfortable room and shower room, and Manu is excellent host. Whatever you want to do he can organise and at very reasonable rates. Highlight was local boatman's backwater tour. Also swimming at beautiful almost empty beach. It is a working farm so you hear the pigs sometimes and it's a working village around so some noise but nothing that disturbed us. Nearby temple pilgrims chant early -my husband slept through it but I got up and enjoyed the amazing dawn bird life. Loved the food on site - delicious and very reasonable - and also enjoyed going to local seafood restaurant. We hope to return.

    Liz2016-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Manu is a wonderful Host. He is polite and helpful, as is his family who work with him to prepare homemade meals and assist guests. The guest rooms are modern, clean and have beautiful views of the Backwaters. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay here and would highly recommend it to people traveling in the area. Manu arranged a 2 hr private boat ride through the Backwaters that we found fascinating. He also set up an Aryvedic massage for me with a local woman - this was the most energizing massage I've ever had and I loved it. My daughter also had a really fun day trip to the beach within driving distance of Manu's. This is a welcoming family and beautiful spot to stay. I highly recommend it! Odette

  • We spent four nights here at the end of a wonderful trip along the Malabar coast and Hampi, so many contrasts and wonders but we needed to wind down and this was a perfect place. The atmosphere is tranquil right next to the water,there is lots to observe; wonderful birds, graceful boats glide past. Manu and his family take care of everything, great to see them living a traditional life, everyone has their tasks. The food is vegetarian with some fish,healthy and plentiful. Manu was a generous and most helpful host,answering our many questions about the area and culture. We were so lucky to go to a local temple and see a spectacular ritual with elephants and stunning music. Everything was easy to organise with a local taxi and a boatman for trips on the canals. Stay here if you can but take good books to pass the time or just dream away some days in this carefree atmosphere.

    Pippa2016-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • there is only one word to describe our experience at Manu's place.. WOW!! :) our room was perfect, right by the lake with breathtaking views! the whole place is amazing and the food really good! Manu was a great host! its definitely a place i want to revisit and would recommend it to anyone. also a great plus the tour to the backwaters with the canoe.. cant wait to go back!

  • Clean room, nice to have a balcony to relax on. Excellent hot shower. Wifi came and went but not a big problem for us. We were unfortunate to be in Cochin at the same time as the demonetisation but our hosts were excellent and very thoughtful during it all. Very tasty breakfast available too.

  • I made an impromptu trip to Fort Kochi and Henry was very accommodating in taking in my request at the eleventh hour. My stay at Kevin's Homestay was very comfortable. Since I had no prior plans, Henry helped me out in planning my trip and also arranged for many services such as boat rides, bus bookings etc. Henry and his wife made me really delicious breakfast. They are also expanding the house to accommodate more guests. If you make a trip to Fort kochi, kevin's homestay is a great place to stay. Highly recommended!

  • Staying with Philip's family was very enjoyable. They were very hospitable to us and also gave us the space we desired to do our own activities. The location is about 4 miles from thr nearest usable beach. We rented a scooter for about $6/day which worked out well for us.

    David2018-03-06T00:00:00Z

  • We enjoyed our stay very much! The location is perfect: Near the Kochi Fort and quite. The room wasn't very big, but that's no problem because there is a nice shared living room and balcony where you can meet the guests from the other two rooms or just relax :)

    Merlin2016-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Juliet and her husband was a really sweet couple looking after everything. They introduced us to the cultural centre where we ended up going to watch Kadhakali and a cultural dance show. The house is located very near to the coast in a cute little alley. The room is comfy, private and has a clean toilet too. The family really made us feel at home there. Juliet made us a delicious breakfast of puttu. They offered us some fresh lemonade when we got there too. Overall, a great place to stay and a great location to enjoy fort kochi.

    Léa2016-07-25T00:00:00Z

    Miles2018-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Making the booking and selecting this place was a breeze. The host made the first attempt in initiating communication for the first time making sure our reservation was confirmed for those dates and that we were going to travel to Kochi. After that first time, Nikish was very quick in responding to emails, (Hidden by Airbnb) messages and sms/texts before we reached and during our stay getting help arranging taxis and getting directions. Juliet, Nikish's mom was very warm in welcoming our family and accomodating every single need of our family. We were travelling with infants and kids and believe me we had varied needs, questions and queries and between Nikish and his mother everything was well taken care of. Accommodation was relatively new, facility was up-to-date and everything worked beyond expectation. The neighborhood was symbolic of the old Kochi style of habitation and gave you the feeling that you were one of the locals living there. It was a wonderful experience staying with Nikish's family. Would love to stay with them again on our next trip to Kochi.

    Amit2015-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were welcomed with warm reception by Mrs Sebastian who is incredibly helpful and generous with the time and advise, even helped us with the transport during odd hours, her son Nikhish though not stays there guided us in the need of hour. Pleasant, clean and spacious rooms, Food served was delicious. Sooo enjoyed our stay there.

    Sri2015-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in the El Casa. The rooms are modern, clean and well equipped. The indian breakfast is delicious. It's like a home away from home. I really recommend to stay at the El Casa. Great location.

  • Uno dei piu' bei posti in cui sono stato in India. Lontano dal caos metropolitano di Kochi e Alappuzha: Un vero paradiso di pace e natura senza turisti. Manu e' stato perfetto. Sempre raggiungibile per telefono, ci ha aiutato a raggiungere l'albergo e dato ottimi suggerimenti per sfruttare al meglio il nostro tempo. A 40 minuti e' possibile raggiungere una spiaggia meravigliosa dove fare il bagno e gustare la cucina del luogo. La vista della camera sul lago e' stupenda ed il giro in barca per i canali e' da non perdere. Purtroppo non abbiamo avuto tempo per approfittare dei massaggi ayurvedici di cui ci hanno raccontato altri ospiti entusiasti. Assolutamente consigliato!

    Umberto2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful introduction to India's nicest state. Manu is a great host and you really are in the heart of the backwaters, surrounded by birds of prey (fish eagles and brownie kites) and other wildlife - be prepared for the occasional thing going bump in the night. The beach is a short cycle away down quiet roads (slightly longer if you get lost like we did, but that was fine!). It's slightly remote but that is its charm - you feel a million miles from your troubles whilst being relatively close to Kochi (just check the train times as they stop early!). Canoeing to the nearest shop is a treat! And his cousin's cooking is out of this world. The food alone is worth a review and great value for money. Stay for breakfast as well as dinner. As a side note, we went in Monsoon season when the backwaters are a different but beautiful beast. Don't be afraid of a little rain!

    Sam2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing for those who love nature and need to recharge and relax. The views are stunning and the soothing backwaters will ensure you immediately disconnect. Manu as everybody else says on here is an amazing host, who looked after us since the minute we arrived and ensured our whole stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and so are the bathrooms. We stayed in the facing corner room which gave us almost 360 degrees view of the stunning backwaters with a little porch where one can sit back and relax, and the best, there weren't many mosquitoes! One doesn't need to go far to see how the Chinese finishing nets work, they have their own just at the back of the house! A real authentic experience with home made Keralan cuisine and local produce, where you can meet locals and gives you an unique opportunity to learn how their daily lives are. They all are very welcoming and very keen to know more about other cultures, don't miss this opportunity that you will not find if you stay in the big hotels in the city. Manu's family is very sweet and respectful and were always happy to see us. Something not to miss is a trip on the backwaters to see the amazing sunset with Suku, the boat man! If you have time, a trip to Munnar, the tea plantation, is a must. Sunil, our driver was a star! We also visited a little beach of white sand 30 min away from there which was very clean and not very busy. Fort Kochi can be visited in one day. We recommend to go to the Kerala Kathakali Centre and see some of their evening shows, Indian classical dance, live music, martial arts, etc. We can't recommend this place high enough and cannot wait to go back!

    Ivan2016-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most amazing time, the surroundings are beautiful, and Manu is the most helpful host I'd ever had. He helped me organise several things even after our stay. Manu was always there to offer advice and help with anything we asked. Above all he was extremely friendly and it was lovely to have a drink with him in the evenings!! Had an excellent time would recommend to everyone!

    Anish2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you're like me, you've already read through all of the reviews of this place because you are a thorough researcher. I echo all of the amazing things everyone else has already said. They are definitely accurate. This might sound crazy but I literally planned my whole trip around this place. I bought tickets to India on a whim and then did some research on what part of India I wanted to come to. I wanted to experience authentic Ayurveda, eat great (safe) food, see the natural beauty of India, and have a great experience with the locals. This fit the bill in every way. I was only in India for 6 days and only spent 4 nights here at the farmhouse. I didn't plan what to do ahead of time because I knew everything would be cheaper and easier to just plan though Manu once I arrived. This was definitely the way to go! We kept busy during our short time. Manu arranged Ayurvedic massages for us (deep pressure but AMAZING in my opinion), a backwater boat tour, and a trip to Mannur which I highly recommend even though it's a drive. We arrived in April which is the hot season which was really the only downside. I can handle heat but it is also HUMID so be prepared! We stayed in the corner room with the beautiful view. We put in an additional fan but an AC unit would have been amazing. I found out the last day there are other rooms with AC units. It wouldn't have been such a big deal if we had been there in peak season, we just went at the hottest time of year. Also, there are definitely mosquitos since it's right on the water, and tiny ants that like to hang around so be careful with your food. (We left some out for a couple of hours ago retuned to an ant Haven) Before arriving, I had been concerned about eating the food and drinking the water in India. I didn't have any problems at all with the being sick from the food or water they have on site. Manu keeps big jugs of filtered water so it's easy to stay hydrated. I only ate breakfast and one dinner here but it was all good food. Manu is really just the best. His English is excellent and he's just so charming. He took such great care of us and set us up with all of the locals. He knows someone for anything you want or need. I had bought the fabric for a Sari on our trip to Munnar and he took me to a local friend of his who stitched the blouse for me in a day. Really, the best way to travel India is to have an insider who you can trust and can connect you to everything. That's what made this experience so exceptional. I had pretty high expectations after reading all of the reviews for this place...

    Melissa2018-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Manu was a great host! The room matched everything in the description given and is the perfect location for wanting to relax. The Backwaters are especially worth viewing. Would definitely recommend to others travelling Kerala/southern India! Thanks Manu!

    Gary2016-08-29T00:00:00Z

The place is walking to distance to everything you need, good quiet location. And the room had everything you needed for a lovely private room. I would definitely recommend this place!

    Emma2016-10-28T00:00:00Z

    Malcolm2017-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The room was clean, cozy, and tidy, exactly what we needed for our weekend. There were a few things missing/not working (tubelight/AC) but that really didn't bother us. In terms of location, this is probably as good as it gets. Given that we were in Kochi for the Biennale, it was a huge plus that everything was walking distance from here, and that definitely was a big part of how much we enjoyed the weekend. Sheeba was always available with a smile and a general demeanor of pleasantness to answer any queries and be of any help at all. We checked in a little earlier than expected and checked out a little later, and she was kind enough to be understanding on both accounts. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! :)

    Yashasvini2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Had a good stay in Kochi. Sheeba is a kind host and her house has a great location: close enough to the action but far enough away to be nice and quiet.

    Antony2017-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sheeba was an excellent host. On arrival she even gave us a nice cool glass of lime juice each. The rooms were clean an tidy and she offered us advice whenever we asked it. Overall great location and host, would stay again.

    Liam2016-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sheeba gave us such a warm welcome- it was so nice after traveling far to meet her smile! The room was super clean too- and very comfortable. Unexpectedly she prepared a delicious breakfast, and I regret not having time and a second person to take her cooking class (plan on this if you visit!). Also to her credit, Sheeba let us switch to the a/c room when our first night was too hot with only a fan (it was unseasonably warm). The only drawback was that Internet wasn't working well in the area when we stayed, nothing they could do to fix it, but the neighbors had the same problem so it seemed like the network was running slow for a couple days. Just a heads up that it isn't good to depend on wifi access for travel research like we did.

  • Mahesh clearly delivered exactly what was promised in the listing. Someone was always around to take care of our needs and everything was perfect. The surroundings were very well maintained and extremely clean. This place is small but packed with everything we need. It is very well maintained and everything inside looks new. Flooring is excellent and they even have a moderate kitchen and a full format refrigerator. In short this was an excellent choice for us. The caretaker was very helpful throughout the stay and deserves a special appreciation.

    Supriya2018-06-17T00:00:00Z

Situated on a beautiful ancestral property with a banana plantation and traditional bathing pond, the cottage is neatly and tastefully done up with a smart kitchen and bathroom and all that you need in terms of modern conveniences. We had passion fruit falling from the vine right outside the cottage every morning and there was plenty of area for our son to play, and swim of course. The owners live in the house next door and are incredibly welcoming. We look forward to coming back for a longer stay at the end of the year.

  • Ich habe schon alles erzählt. Mahesh's Cottage ist ein Paradies.

    Dorothea2018-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • When I return to Kochi I’ll definitely try to stay at this place again. Mahesh’s charming little house was very clean, and had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. The family property that it’s situated on is pristine and luscious with green foliage, and the neighborhood always felt safe. I would like to particularly note that Mahesh’s family was incredibly nice and hospitable! Whether it was helping me arrange a rickshaw or inviting me in for a cup of tea, they were always very helpful, and did everything they could to make me feel welcome. Thanks again Mahesh & Family! :)

    Zachary2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Mahesh, thank you for your hospitality! House is very clean and cosy. Beautiful little garden where you can have a breakfast surrounded by all kind of birds!

    Ours is a traditional Kerala tiled house recently renovated to suit demands of modern life. We are located in a convenient location very near to road connecting business establishments in Ernakulam and tourist destinations in Mattancherry and Fortcochin. Our house is located in a calm and quiet area .
    Very spacious tiled room house with 2 bath attached bed rooms, 2 large living rooms, one dining hall and a kitchenette. All rooms are very spacious and have a cool and salubrious ambience thanks the tiled construction and surrounding greenery. The apartment occupies an area of more than 100 sq.feet and hence can accommodate up to 10 people.
    A very calm and quiet residential area having a rustic ambience yet with a number of shops and dining facilities.
  • Though our purpose of the visit wasn't that great.. John uncle and aunty with their kindness and warmth made our visit a good one... They really helped a lot in finding out places and also with food.. they have provided excellent breakfast.. which we still crave for.. coconut chutney was one of the best... They were very flexible... we had no language problem with the family as they could speak.. House is full of greenery as shown in the picture and nice interiors... There is a coffee house close by which served appams with tomato chutney which we all enjoyed.. ATM is not very far and you tend to get the basic necessities within the walking distance.. uber was all the time available at the place.. even the bus stop is close by... It is just 20 to 30 min away from ernakulam junction... Uncle was constantly trying to help us in everything we needed and we are very thankful to them.. thanks to airbnb.. we met a happy and sweet couple at Kerala..

    Lalithya2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience was fantastic! John and his wife took good care of us. They also provided excellent malayalee breakfast. I would highly recommend them

    Grace2016-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our favourite thing about John and Mary's place was the balcony where you can sit and look out on the residential street. We felt safe and comfortable in their sweet house in Ernakulam. They were of great help and we had a really good time with them on our short stay.

    Ishwari2018-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Myself, my husband, and our baby daughter stayed with John and Mary during a business holiday. After previously staying in a few mediocre guest houses in Fort Kochi, Rose Villa was a 100% improvement! Our stay was comfortable, convenient, and refreshing. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The atmosphere of the home is spotlessly clean, charming, and relaxing. The rooms are bright, very spacious, and well-equipped with tasteful furnishings. The water pressure is excellent, and the WiFi connection is strong. As an artist and online entrepreneur, I found it easy to work and create here - and as a mother, it was a wonderful setting for spending time with family. The surrounding neighborhood was easy to navigate and several dining options, shopping, pharmacy, and other necessary facilities were within a few minutes' walk. We enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Onam festivities at the nearby temples and churches. John and Mary are very warm and welcoming hosts. We were treated as members of the family, with respect and care. They were attentive to our needs and always willing to offer advice and assistance. Mary is an excellent cook and provided us with delicious breakfasts, and both engaged us in pleasant and interesting conversation. We will always cherish the time we spent with them. I highly recommend Rose Villa to any traveler visiting Kochi. Particularly if you are visiting for the Kochi-Muziris biennale, I think you will find it a perfect environment for creative inspiration. Thanks for a delightful stay and many fond memories!

    Jon2016-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at this property just for a day but it was memorable. It’s a beautiful house in a calm locality. John uncle and Mary aunty were amazing hosts with great sense of humor. We felt at home through the stay. 5 stars for the hospitality and wish to stay longer next time I visit Cochin

    lalith2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice place hidden away in the middle of the hustle and bustle but still charming enough to enjoy it. John and Mary were wonderful and helpful hosts. The only thing lacking was an AC which they have already informed that it is in the pipeline. Looking forward to spending time again here the next time I travel to Kochi.

    Sri Harsha2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Good location close to Fort Kochi. John was helpful to guide us around town.

  • MaryGrace's airbnb is very close to all the beautiful attractions in forte Coche. The room was clean and comfortable! No hot water available from the tap. They were very accommodating supply delicious food. They care very much about your comfort. Sometimes it was difficult with English but they tried their best! They are happy to help out with anything you want to do in the Area! Lovely people! Thanks Marygrace

    Hannah2016-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This homestay was just amasing. I really felt like home. The family showed me around everywhere and was very helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The food of Mary Gace is just delicious. It's very close from Fort Cochin. Thank you for that wunderful time with you!

    Claudia2016-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • MaryGrace was everything we could ask for in a budget home-stay, it was surprisingly clean. Another good thing is that they have strategically installed mesh on windows and doors so we had absolutely no trouble with mosquitoes (this is a huge problem anywhere in India, a single mosquito could kill your dreams) The heat was slightly unbearable especially if you are used to air-conditioning, but I noticed that MaryGrace is in the process of adding a gabled roof on top of the original flat one, this could help keep the rooms cooler than it is right now for future guests. Over-all I was very pleased with the stay. Thank you MaryGrace :)

    Sanil2017-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Mary Grace and Jolly Lawrence are a very warm couple and they responded to all my queries and took care of all my little needs like arranging a bicycle, hot water for bathing (even though it wasn't mentioned in the listing), warm water for drinking when I fell sick, etc. They made me feel at home. As written in reviews by other people, it is true that Mary Grace cooks very well and I had meals a lot of times at her place. It is a very nice homestay, overall a great experience, total value for money and highly recommended!

    Siddharth2016-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and quiet, cute place and nice people. Just a bit difficult to find if you refer to the Airbnb and (Hidden by Airbnb) maps... plus the number on Airbnb seems to be unreachable.

    Priya2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Mary and her husband and family were super nice, they are truly genuine good hearted people. Wish there were more people as such. The place was very new and spotless in a quiet environment. For breakfast I had delicious Kerala curry with rice noodles cakes just perfect. Her husband even took me on a ride to see the town and to take me to the train station. I definitely would come back and stay with them. Thank you guys

Everything was well provided for and they were very accommodating with the last minute changes in our plans, ensuring the stay was really smooth. If you're looking to relax from all the travel in Kerala, this homestay is perfect and is only 10km away from Fort Kochi.

La maison est jolie et spacieuse, les chambres très confortables et propres. Salles de bain impeccable. Nos hôtes ont été serviables, aimables et discrets. Ils nous ont servi des déjeuners très copieux. Si vous passez par Cochi, n’hésitez pas à réserver cet Airbnb. Vous ne le regretterez pas.

  • Nikitha and her family were the best hosts! This was our first AirBnB experience and we were thoroughly impressed! The space was exactly as described, the neighborhood was very central and there was nothing the family didn't do, to make us feel comfortable. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We were always greeted with smiles and pleasant faces. Our German friends who were with us and visiting India for the first time were impressed and touched by the hospitality. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Ernakulam.

    Neha2016-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay we had. Nikhita and her entire family were excellent hosts. The house was spick and span. Everything well organised. Only regret - Wish we had stayed longer. The house was more than spacious for 5. And the bathrooms were super clean. I can't thank them enough.

    Vidya2016-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Athithi Homes for a day. I was quite pleased with the look & feel and the arrangements of the apartment. It was quite spacious too. Felt really relaxed staying here as it was very cozy. Everything was all neat and tidy. They had all the facilities we wanted. One of the things that attracted me was their wonderful neighborhood and surroundings. Being in the middle of the city, the accessibility was another main attraction. I would defenitely recommend this place to all.

    Madhulal2016-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I totally recommend this homestay. Mitty and George are very accommodating for any needs you might have. We were very spoilt with Mitty cooking breakfast on request as we wanted to be locals in India and experience their cusine. Our unit was regularily cleaned with fresh sheets and towels and the covers on the bed were spectacular. Very spacious for four people [1 couple and 2 singles] the cooking facilities and kitchen fantastic you never needed to want for anythin. The accommodation is like a home away from home and we regularily eat out on the balcony overlooking the lusious gardens. The vicinity was close to local shops and not to far away from all the hussel and bussel of the city but just enough to have peace when you returned home. We frequented the local grocery stores which were a hop skip and a jump away and then jumped into a auto ricksaw [which are many] just outside our door. Wifi is great so all in all we really had a great time.

    Robbie2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • It is a fabulous accommodation. Nikitha is such a friendly and helpful host. She recommended all the places as per our taste to eat and enjoy the town. Coming to the property its a beautiful 3bhk on the first floor in a peaceful area. It consists of three large bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a large kitchen and the attache with a washing machine. Availability of an RO, a toaster and a microwave helps you a great deal. Private and clean house you can enjoy with your family members without any interference always knowing that Nikitha is ever available in the background for any help. The house is very conveniently located near the railway station in Ernakulum to roam around Kochi. We were only there for a day as I had booked the place for a stopover in Kochi for a day before I move onto my vacation in the tranquil lands of Kerala. To my pleasant surprise, I found myself asking for more, much more as a day is just not enough to savour the delicious Kochi nor the comforts at Nikitha's home. Will definitely plan a longer trip the next time!!

    Sukant2016-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful stay!! We were hosted by Nikitha's parents Mr. George and Mrs. Mitty both of whom were extremely hospitable. They helped us reorganize our itenarary to make the most of our time. Grace tours the travel agency just a few steps away is also a boon. highlighting brilliant hospitality:- One of the days we returned early from our trip and decided to watch a movie from our laptop. The hosts organized a hdmi cable on short notice. Please note that most food delivery guys take ages to deliver. mostly north of the one hour mark. Plan your food orders accordingly ;).

    Amu2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • This homestay was brilliant- the home was beautifully decorated, very clean, had a large open-plan living room and 3 large bedrooms. It is located centrally, but in a secluded area which felt safe, and out of the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. The hosts were lovely; they lived in a seperate apartment on the ground floor, and were so helpful not only for any questions we had about the area but also for helping us decide on and plan an itinerary for our time in Kerala. They even made us sandwiches on our first day, we felt very welcome. I would absolutely recommended this homestay.

    Adam2017-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this apartment for a bunch of my friends from Europe. They were mighty pleased by the whole experience. The apartment was clean, spacious and furnished nicely. I could not personally meet Nikitha but her concern for her guests ensured that we were in touch constantly. When one of my friends was unwell and stayed at home, Nikitha's mother took care of her (Kerala has earned another kanji lover ). Lastly and most importantly, I would highly recommend this place because of the wonderful hospitality of the hosts and their genuine care and concern for their guests. Thank you for everything Nikitha!

  • Amazing place! While the small "jungle" next to Benny's place was a bit noisy at times, it definitely added to the charm. The room is much better than the photos depict, and they even gave us a super yummy breakfast. 100% recommend! Such nice people

    Lavinia2018-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here for 2 nights in Jan18. Benny and his family were amazing hosts, really welcoming and helpful. Think the best hosts I had in a month of travelling. The room was good, clean and nicely maintained. Breakfast was excellent, tea when I arrived, and a good location - around 5 mins or so to the main parts of Fort Kochi. Excellent value for money, would highly recommend staying here. Only small point, but I had trouble finding the house as the directions weren't very clear, I was told to go to the Bienale Office, and little did I know there are two of these about 100m apart. I didn't have a local sim so didn't call which would have helped. We discussed tho and directions will be much clearer for the next people staying.

    Ba2018-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Très bien accueilli par une famille gentille et attentionnée. La chambre est grande et il y a un balcon, avec en plus un accès à une cuisine et un espace salon / salle à manger. Petit déjeuner au top. Parfaitement bien situé et calme assuré au fond d’une impasse (à 100m à droite d’une petite chapelle en descendant du croisement de Ridsdale Branch rd et TM Muhammad rd). À conseiller sans hésiter pour votre séjour à Kochi.

    Adrien2018-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The whole family was more then welcoming and helpful, Benny even drove me to the bank and helped with buying a sim card as I had some troubles with that. They were lovely and they offered me breakfast and delicious tea :) The accommodation was good , I actually stayed in another room that was comfy and had a little terrace, only thing is that the wifi signal was very weak but I had indian sim card so it didn't bother me. They just started with renting business but they are well organized and welcoming :) Don't hesitate to stay with them! :)

    Josipa2018-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and lovely location. The pictures are accurate and the room was clean and airy. The balcony was beautiful and the house is surrounded by trees. Benny and his family are lovely, warm and helpful. Thanks Benny, for the amazing experience.

    Naveesh2018-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Benny's homestay for a couple of nights. The location is great and near everything you need in Fort Kochi. Several rooms are offered and you have a separate entrance from the street so you can come and go whenever you want. Guests' kitchen is available as well. The family was very friendly and the hospitality was great.

    Shauli2018-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Experience the Shade! Benny and his wife, Greena, were exceptionally hospitable and so welcoming and helpful. We arrived early but they graciously let us into our room and even prepared a meal for us. The room was immaculate and the home is in a beautiful area with lots of greenery and bird life. We left early on our final day, but Benny and his wife were up, they prepared coffee for us and Benny dropped us one by one at the bus station with his scooter. We absolutely loved our stay and would strongly recommend a stay at Experience the Shade. Best value in Fort Kochi.

    George2018-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Benny and his family are very friendly and helpful, it felt like a priveledge to spend time in their home. Guests even have their own front door. Comfortable and quite room (until the morning chorus). Just what I needed. No A.C. but I was not expecting it and a real bonus is the use of a fridge in the common area, lovely cold drinks on tap and safe drinking water is supplied. Capped off with a lovely breakfast and good advice, I was very happy hence taking the time to write this review in return.

  • 2 nights at Firoz ... a nice place currently under renovation (March 2018) to improve the comfort of the travelers. The wooded part has been removed for the moment because it has become fragile with time. Firoz plans to reposition it after the renovation work. that's what gives charm to the house. Firoz is very helpful and good advice. Delicious food for those who want to eat on the spot. Located not far for the district of Mattancherry, we can go to Fort Kochi very quickly either in tuktuk or by walking which allows to see the small streets not frequented by tourists .. I recommend !!

    Florence2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Firoz is a great host and his place is lovely.

    Roshan2018-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay. The place was clean and comfortable. I appreciate Mr. Firoz's hospitality the minute I arrived. Fortunate that Mr. Firoz knows the best guru in town, as I'm here primarily for yoga. Definitely had a great stay in Cochin, thanks, in part to Mr Firoz.

    Belony2017-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Firoz war ein sehr netter Gastgeber und hat mir gute Tipps gegeben. So konnte ich ohne Probleme günstig an einem Backwaters-Tagestrip teilnehmen. Ich wurde abgeholt und wieder zurückgebracht. Das Zimmer an sich war sauber und klimatisiert. Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ist unschlagbar. Empfehlenswert!

    Agmal2018-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Bon Guest house pour le prix l'essentiel s'y trouve après c'est comme à la maison il faut prévoir ces pinces à linge .. le nécessaire pour un long séjour si c'est le cas ou acheter sur place, toujours moins cher. Mr Firoz est très sympathique, à disposition, prés à vous rendre le moindre service dans ce cadre. Je recommande.

    Fort Kochi, Kerala, India

    Our private house is ideally located in Fort Kochi. The house is surrounded by mango and guava trees and offers an intimate balcony as well as an upper terrace from where you can start a peaceful day or lie down after your exciting sightseeing.
    Our simple guest house is located in Fort Kochi, few meters away from the main church Santa Cruz, the pedestrian area Princess Street and the fishing net. You can move around by walk. Located in residential area, close to the main attractions.
  • We absolutely loved staying here. The room was comfortable and spacious; both the room and attached bath were very clean. The bed was also very comfortable with soft, pressed sheets! The house was very well cared for with lots of plants (tended regularly) and many comfortable spaces to hang out with other guests, as well as books and guidebooks to use. The covered rooftop area was breezy and a perfect place to do yoga or just relax in the hammock. The location was in a residential street within walking distance of restaurants and sights. Kumar was very helpful in setting up a ride to our next location as well as making restaurant recommendations (Fusion Cafe!) and explaining how to get to all the sights. This place was an excellent value. Make sure to see a show at Kerala Kathakali quite nearby; they have a variety of options (drama, martial arts, music, singing, dancing, yoga) that are a truly unique cultural experience and should not be missed.

  • Green house home stay is a place where hosts are truly kind and helpful by nature. Communication was perfect before, during and after my arrival. They also took some time to introduce me Kochi, main monuments, city map etc. which is not the case in all guest houses in India. Location in Fort Kochi is perfect for sightseeing. Everything is at walkable distance. There are also food stalls, shops, restaurants etc. nearby. Rooms are Indian style but spacious, clean and very important: mosquitos proof! Which is also not the case for a lot of guest houses in India. I would highly recomend the place for every traveller willing to discover Kochi or starting to travel in Kerala from Kochi.

  • Great place to be! Have been traveling India quite a bit but never stayed in such clean and well maintained place incl. state of the art bathroom - u nearly forget to be in incredible India ;-) Kumar and his kind Italian girlfriend are so helpful and kind beginning with the fact that Kumar greeted me from the balcony with "welcome home!" and took me on his scooty for enjoying a chai downtown. And yes both make u feel home in a place which is great value yet for budget prices. Thanks a lot!!

  • We had a lovely stay at Green House in Fort Kochi. They were very helpful and gave us good advise on places to visit in Kerala. The room was clean and we could do laundry as wall as use their kitchen :).

  • My brother and I stayed at this homestay for just over a week during a recent visit to Kochi. Joy and his family were lovely hosts. They have several rooms at this homestay which is well located along a quiet residential lane way near Bishop House. Our room was quite plain but large, no air con, but very clean and comfortable for our needs. My only peeve was that this room did not have hot water, and the cold water was very cold! The Indian breakfasts, which were our preference, were lovely. Joy also helped to arrange laundry for us, as well as airport transfers, since my flights arrived and departed at an ungodly hours. One hiccup, the taxi which was supposed to meet me on arrival into Kochi never arrived. If you are not familiar with India, it is just as easy to take a pre-paid taxi from the counter in the arrivals hall at Kochi airport. It costs around 1000 rupees and is a safe option. Alternately, if you are arriving during the day there is also a bus which stops nearby which is the option that my brother chose. Joy was able to provide him the details etc. All in all we had a very nice stay and enjoyed Kochi very much!

  • We had a wonderful time during our stay with Joy and his family who were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and it was great to have the use of the lounge and kitchen during our 2 week stay. The location of the home stay is good for accessibility to shops and places of interest . Joy was very knowledgeable of the local area and places to visit on a day trip. We would certainly recommend staying there during a visit to Fort Cochin .

    Barbara2015-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Joy and his family were extremely hospitable and the breakfasts were amazing

    Lizzie2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was wonderful. The space was very comfortable, clean and private. The food was amazing!

    Kelsey2016-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Joy and his family are wonderful hosts, they go way beyond expectations. A lovely experience to stay in their home, I totally recommend them to everyone.

    Liz2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay with Joy and his family who were all very warm and welcoming. We stayed in our own private room, one floor above the family, which opens straight into a communal dining and lounge area which includes a kitchen. We were even welcome to use the fridge and utensils, which was useful for us. Joy and his wife were very helpful and approachable, answering any questions we had about the area, what to do etc and even just for a friendly chat. His wife even made us a cup of ginger and honey juice for an upset stomach and did their best to cater to our needs for the breakfasts, as we were unable to eat spicy food at the time. The food was great - tasty omelettes, fruit selections and even some traditional keralan food. Another bonus was that we were able to buy all of our tickets, for local trips and performances etc, directly from Joy (at no extra charge). The location itself is also very good, being within walking distance to the town centre and to local attractions such as the Kathakali centre and the harbour with the Chinese fishing nets. We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Pritum And Franziska2014-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very pleasant stay, centrally located and Joy and family were extremely welcome and friendly, couldn't be more helpful.

    Ana2015-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely one night stay here. The room was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was really good. Definitely recommend a stay at Joy's place.

    My place is close to the beach (5 min walk), Basilica Church (5 min walk), St. Francis Church (10 min walk), Jewish Synagogue (15 min by Tuk Tuk), Kathakali Centre (10min walk). It's pretty much in the heart of Fort Kochi. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.. You’ll love my place because of its freshness, you've got a good sense of light and air, it's very central and I think you'd enjoy the company of our family :)

  • Leslie's house is a 5 min walk from the Indo-Portuguese museum and the eateries in the main fort area. The area is lovely and quiet. They provide breakfast for an additional cost, but it's so lovely that I'd recommend it to everyone staying at his place. The idli and fish curry was superb! Thanks, Leslie!

    Garima2017-03-30T00:00:00Z

  • Leslie's place is a gem!! I can't recommend it highly enough. Leslie and his family and lovely, the place is clean and very comfortable. Some amazing food cooked by Minda. Leslie will do anything for his guests to ensure they are happy! When travelling to Fort Kochi stay with Leslie's family!!

    Joshua2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! Simply wow! Enough cant be commended on how Leslie and his wife treated us as guests and family. We were greeted with an immediate itinerary to see Ft. Kochi, which was amazing and took the entire day and included tickets to the local theatre that evening. Then the following day they organised a trip for us to see the backwaters, which were amazing. That night we were taught how to make fish curry with our own food show style cooking lessons, which along with the rest of her cooking tasted fantastic. We were greeted with tea and breakfast every morning and dinner when requested. Truly an amazing AirBnB experience up and down and all for an incredibly good value.

    Dana2017-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Leslie and Minda were incredibly warm and welcoming. My stay was brief and I just came to poke around. I walked everywhere and was happy that accommodation was off the main tourist track. Price was awesome and my stay was comfortable. Minda even stitched a hole in my pants that she noticed. Awesome breakfasts!

    Constance2017-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Leslie & his wife Minda are a gem, they are very considerate for your needs and are very open in offering whatever support you might need. Minda is an exceptional cook and their portion sizes are really upto your appetite. They made us feel very welcomed. The location is very central so it was easy for us to get around. If you can hire a bicycle most sites in the Fort Kochi area can accessed in minutes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Hello everyone Sea hut is a home stay with 4 independent double bed rooms on a common veranda.The room has a king size double bed and an aircon in it. Its a perfect retreat for tourist who want to run away from the hectic city's.
    Sea hut is the only homestay in kochi which is right on the ocean. And you could sleep hearing the waves. And where you can see the sunset on your backyard. And where you can see the dolphins playing around in the ocean. Our place is very silent and peaceful and is off the busy streets of kochi and its just 3km( less than 10min) to all the main tourist attractions. And we have 4 hammocks for the lazy ones who likes to relax or to finish a book.. Sea hut is one of its kind... Come and stay with us to experience it.
  • Wonderful welcome, caring family . I loved the morning pinches on my cheeks !!. Spotlessly clean. Quiet spot away from the hectic city. Highly recommend .

    Samsara2016-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place is just 10 mins away from Fort Kochi . The place itself is on the rocky beach.Really friendly hosts., make you feel like you are home. Decent food options around in a radius of 4kms. Overall a place to remember.

    Kalyan2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Sea Hut. Hammocks and hang from the trees and the relaxing ocean waves crashing in the background. The hosts are helpful and friendly. Hemma is the sweetest! Listing is accurate, rooms are clean, a quiet retreat close to Fort Cochin.

    Tamara2015-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, quiet, quite spacious and right by the sea. Lovely Keralan breakfast and the hosts were super helpful. Would recommend to anyone staying in kochi.

    Sam2017-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two days at Sea Hut homestay and absolutely loved our time there. The location is excellent, it's right next to the sea so you can hear the waves and relax on the hammocks.The rooms itself are clean and cozy. The homestay is close to Kochi fort which has excellent restaurants, cafes and museums. So location wise this is a perfect place. The best part though are warm loving hosts who take extra care of their guests. We loved the home made breakfast and lunch, overall a great holiday experience. Thank you :)

    Daniel2017-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The sound of the waves along the stone shore is very soothing. I spent the entire day on top of the rock wall behind the home looking out over the ocean. FYI the shower has no hot water. You must fill a bucket and bathe Indian style.

    Aman2016-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • My first AirBNB experience was a complete success. Me & my family loved our hosts - not only were they welcoming and accommodating, they also shared useful pointers about the city of Cochin. Our room was nice and the washroom was squeaky clean. The view of the sea from the perch was absolutely exquisite. Our hosts even had a few hammocks installed in the garden area. They cooked us a wonderful dinner and saw us off as we left on our onward journey. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to get back.

    Sreya2016-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic little place off the beach road! Quietly tucked away inside with the beach right across the room. Loved the hosts and everything was just about right. Would surely recommend to anyone wanting to stay at Fort Cochin with their own private view of the sea!

  • Warm welcome and great location. The hosts spoke good English, had precise answers to our questions (directions, buses, activities etc.). They even had adresses to go see the khatakali and get massages. Simple and clean room. Hot water and linings to dry clothes. Overall just a practical and happy place ! Recommended!

    Sarah2017-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Joice and her family are very welcoming people. The room and the common rooms are impeccably kept and the breakfasts delicious! Niya (daughter of Joice) and her father were a great help for us to do lots of activities (ayurvedic massages, kathakali show ...). Thank to them, we also booked a house boat from allepey. Very good address for a soft landing in India. A big thank you to you all!

    Allan2016-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Joice's place is excellent and she and her family are very friendly, sociable and helpful. The place and room were great and clean. The South Indian breakfast was delicious. They helped me out with so many details and arrangements of doing fun stuff in kochi (traditional kathakali dance show tickets, backwater excursion, exchanging money, etc). And I enjoyed the conversations we had on culture and history. They were also very kind to let me arrive in the very early hours after I flew into Kochi at midnight.

    Blair2016-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Joice's homestay for one week. Her place is in a good location, close to the beach and with plenty of restaurants nearby. The family are very friendly and welcoming. We definitely recommend this AirBnb.

    Danny2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended! Anyone new to kochi and are looking for a lovely, inexpensive,caring homestay, dare not look elsewhere bcoz this is the right place for it. Mr. Roy's family took us in warmly and we were given a serene experience. Me and a colleague of mine did the visiting and would love to do so again sometime soon.

    Siva Chairma Prabhu2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • It is a clean and beautiful property, pretty near to the Fort Kochi beach. Joice's family was very sweet and fun to be with. The breakfast they serve is delicious and they were very helpful.

    Dipika2016-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • This spot was a perfect, affordable option for being close to Fort Cochin and exploring Biennale. The room and common area were spacious, I was able to do some laundry while I was there, I caught up on some work on the lovely balcony. It served me well as a solo traveler on a long journey. Joice and family were friendly and welcoming.

    Kara2016-12-23T00:00:00Z
