“Excellent Value for Money & Superb Hospitality - Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

I stayed in this home stay with my family ( 7 members in all ) for 2 days in 1st week of January 2014. We selected this homestay on the basis of very good reviews on tripadvisor and as soon as we reached we knew we had made the right decision. The homestay is on a calm street, has a garden, and some open-space so my kid could play around..Though we reached 5 hours before the checkin time, Mr Thomas ( host ) made sure that we comfortable in the drawing room till he got one of the rooms ready in quick time. The rooms were pretty clean, and decently spacious. We got a homely feeling here as both Thomas and his family members where very courteous and helpful.
Mr Thomas helped us plan our schedule at Kochi, and on their recommendation we went to Kathakali Centre, which was also a unique experience..Also they customized our boating tour to our requirements of half day in a covered boat, since my one year old baby may not co-operate longer than that..Normally half day is in an open-boat..We had a very good stay and wish to thank Mr Thomas and family for their personal care and hospitaility..

The home stay is conveniently located and very quiet. The room was very clean with a nice common area to hang out and use the wifi. Thomas, the owner, gave me a great rundown of the area, which was helpful. I enjoyed my stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We group of 3 guys picked this home stay for a night's stopover at Cochin in Dec,2013.The home-stay is ideally located in Fort Cochin very close to major attractions, but on a very narrow road(acceptable for home-stays).Staff were very nice & co-operative.Nice restaurants available on Lily street which is a 10 mins walk.Only place where we could find North Indian food though expensive.Our hosts provided us with maps of Cochin & some very friendly travel tips which saved us a lot of bucks & much appreciated.Our 2 bedded room was large enough to accommodate 3 of us without any extra beds.

Ideas for improvement : Provide TV in rooms.

Special Note : Rent a bicycle to cover the whole of Fort Cochin in a day.The place is too good to be missed.Apart from that, do take the ferry rides on offer from Fort Cochin/Mattancherry to other islands/parts of this historic city.It'll save much bucks & time as would be an unique experience to cover the place through unconventional modes.All can be completed in 2 full days.

We can only recommend the fort garden homestay. The rooms are very clean at a very good rate, free Wifi and a pleasant sitting area. What more can you ask for. The owner is exeptionally friendly and he is helpful with information about the town, no pushing you into something.
We could store our luggage there for over a week without any extra charge. Thank you so much.

We are fall in love with the home stay.
The owner Thomas is a real gentleman.
He is very kindness and thoughtful.
There is the first place let us feel like home, and we are real relax.
We stay here already for 5 days.

The assistant Ashik is also very helpful, who took us to local restaurant and had nice food,
as well as everything we asked.

If you come here, you must try local life.
That will give you a lot surprise a fun.

Enjoy it!


P.s We want to know how to join yoga class? ha ha.

Very Good Location - at Fort Kochi. Near most of the places of interest at Kochi. Owner was nice and cordial. Room was small but clean. Bathroom was too small. Room service was not available. However good restaurants are available nearby.
