Well, perfect.”

Everything is good. The owner is just so lovely and we were annoying guests: we checked in early because we came from night bus, no problem room was ready and we were welcomed with a delicious tea. We asked for earlier breakfast because we needed to leave early, no problem it was ready at the time and owner was really nice and friendly, you feel at home again. Near everything in fort kochi, super clean, room is really confortable, jungle view, cheap price, what else?? Just book here if you come to kochi

Breath of Freah Air”

Don’t hesitate to say here! I return every time I visit Fort Kochi. Sparkling clean, incredibly friendly family, comfortable and oh-so-spacious! Not to mention a COOL break from the heat! The whole floor is for your use as well! KITCHEN, place to wash clothes, roof access with shaded table for work and space to do YOGA...what a steal for the price you’re paying! Not to mention the location is divine. Walking distance to the beach and literally everything worth seeing. Also, the family is a huge resource! Willing to help arrange all transportation, give you insider tips to help schedule your day! Breathe the fresh air from the lush green jungle next door...You are not going to find a place that is better than this. BEST STAY IN KOCHI!

Do yourself a favour and stay here. The hosts were gracious and helpful. The room clean and tidy with adequate mosquito screens. Wifi was good and teenager approved.

We had a four day stay at the rooftop room with a huge terrace. Nice, quiet, clean, moskito-free room and lots of fresh air. The house is run by a lovely family. They are very helpful and caring. The breakfast is outstanding, don‘t miss this. We had some of the best food in southern India at the table of this family. Warmly recommend staying there.
