Central location - lovely house and grounds. We enjoyed a clean spacious room with good hot showers. Internet was available for free in the common area ( not in your room). The power did cut out but a generator would fire up and you'd be away again. We enjoyed a few gin's in the relaxed garden setting. Breakfast was great... More

Overall good! Slightly overpriced for the budget traveller. Leslie and family were very hospitable and helped arranged all local travel with their cool car, the retro Ambassador. The driver, George was great as well! Will definitely go back an stay. Also loved the birds in the lawn. Took tons of pics.

House is simple but nice, clean, well located. Leslie is very kind in setting up theater, massage, etc without commission. However, before signing up for houseboat bookings, Marare beach, etc, I'd suggest double checking pricing and places. Stay with Leslie but consider designing your own program (even with his suggestions on places to go).

Ann's is in a very convenient location in Fort Kochi and the staff are very pleasant. We were there for 2 nights over the New Year and really only slept and had breakfast there. The house looks a little tired and cluttered and in need of some maintenance. The power cuts were frequent and the backup generator slow to come... More

The hotel itself is beautiful and quiet, with a green garden and some walls aquariums that are very refreshing, which is more than welcome at the end of some hot days. The owner, his family and all the staff are very very nice. The food at the restaurant is great. The rooms are very nice, spacious and clean. The mosquito... More

We traveled all around India over the course of three weeks and spent 3 nights at Ann's. It's an absolutely beautiful property with well-appointed rooms and the whole place looks like it's out of...

Stayed for 2 nights to allow for one full day sightseeing around Fort Kochi. Good location on a reasonably quiet road and walking distance to the beach and Fort Kochi. Rooms and bathrooms a little basic. Nice garden with lawn, flowers, fish tank and various caged birds [however I was sad to hear that the parrots had been put into... More

We spent three days at Ann's and it was a little piece of utopia in the buzzing cauldron that is India. Surrounded by birds and fish on a quite road 5 mins from the centre of town, this great value place does excellent breakfast and superb dinners. The host works tirelessly for the guests and the staff are warm smiles... More
