Our first 2 days in Kerala were spent at Vasco Homestay. We reached at 11pm, but our host was very accomodating and welcoming. The rooms are spotless and spacious. There is free wifi, which had good connectivity. The complimentary breakfast too was excellent. The rooms have antique pieces of furniture, which are not really seen these days. The homestay is...

We chose Vasco Homestay for its 500 years old history. It was original, atmospheric experience. Really like the Dutch furniture, decor and spacious room. Host Mr George Santosh and family reside on the property, gave excellent insight to Fort Kochi history. Also suggested tour options, such as a temple ceremony with elephants procession. To sum up it was excellent value,... More

This is the place I stay whenever I go to Kochi and I go atleast one in a month. A charming heritage building which also happened to be the residence of Vasco da gama himself. The owners of the place are very cordial and helpful. The cafe, attached to the house is very good too. Everything makes you feel very... More

The guest house is in a 500 years old bulding, where Vasco da Gama is supposed to have lived. It is in the very centre of Cochin, you can go everywhere by foot. The 2 rooms are both huge, with charming old furnitures and you have 2 big common rooms with w-fi, sofas, armchairs and books. You really feel at... More

Apparently Vanco de Gama died in this home stay. "I wonder if he had departed this mortal coil in the very same spot as I lay my head" those were the thoughts running through my mind as I peacefully and comfortable drifted off to sleep in the huge, old room with an attached reading room that I had somehow been...

A small cafe with very helpful and friendly staff set in the very atmospheric Vasco de Gama house. Furnishings very apt. Muesli fruit curd was well overpriced at 150IRS (Only pineapple and banana for the fruit) but the fresh cafetiere of coffee for only 30IRS compensated a little. Great for breakfast though menu prices could do with rethink.

I and my husband planned and almost cancelled the trip to Fort Kochi to get a glimpse of the Biennale. After some last minute hum drum we managed a room at Vasco Homestay and reached Fort Kochi on 2nd Mar. We got the room towards the back and its a big room with 2 separate beds. The beds can accommodate... More

The street sound would not let you sleep at night. Leaving this nightmare, everything is great, old property - gives you a feel of old portuguese heritage palatial house. It is said this was Vasco-De-Gama's house. All the attractions of Fort Cochi are on walking distance.
