I had a lovely few days in this old Dutch house with peaceful garden, just a few minutes walk from the Fort Cochin wharf, with Mrs Walton's lovingly provided breakfast and the knowledgeable Mr Walton's helpful advice.

It's a place that seems to combine everything - location right in the middle of Fort Kochi, cosiness, a very friendly welcome with a good instruction of how to use your time in Kochi the best way - and a book shop which belongs to the owner of the homestay.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and given lots of helpful tips and a hand-drawn map of the area. Beautiful rooms (with the most comfy bed yet) and a delicious breakfast to order are included in the price. A fantastic place to stay!

Our room, though small, was attractive, immaculate and air conditioned! The breakfast room is... More
