The reality was: The room was dirty,we even had to unblock the washbasin... More

Hello girly 126, Thanks for your review, received on 19th, the feast day of my Patron saint, St. Joseph. As I read it, I am given to understand that it reflects the negative aspects of your stay here, which I feel you must have avoided at the very beginning itself.

We arrived to Kochi by train to catch an early-morning flight the following morning, so this homestay was perfect for us. Walking distance from the train station. Very considerate owner, who helped us arranging a taxi to the airport and personally notified us at 4 am when the taxi had arrived. The area was peaceful, aside from the barking dog... More

Hello 150plustax, Thanks for your review that highlights the experiences you had here. Though the room and bathroom are mosquito proof, some mosquitoes may have crept in while the door was opened, since it is a season of mosquitoes in the city, with stagnant water in the outlying areas. Had you asked for it, I would have provided you with... More

Hello, I was a bit taken aback when I received your review, since our records show no arrivals from Italy either as single or as a group in January 2013, as stated by you; so much so that I reported to TripAdvisor, a problem with your review. However, when I checked the arrival register, passport & visa details for 2012,... More

I have stayed in this home stay more than two occasion. The rooms are modestly furnished and clean with blissfully cold AC. The owner is very co-operative and an understanding person. The food is limited to free breakfast only though not at all a problem, as there are many food joints nearby. The place is comfortable located near South Railway... More
