“Simple, clean, fantastic host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I stayed at the Green House for one week. Kumar is as great of a host as everyone here claims, he goes out of his way to make his guests feel welcome. He figured out that it was my birthday while I was there and went to the the trouble of picking up a cake with my name on it and organized a surprise with the other guests. Highly recommended!

Thank you to a fine host and now a friend. Kumar made us feel at home from day one and we were greeted by a friendly young man that arranged so much for us in the five days we were privileged to be in Fort Kochi. His home is clean, neat and extremely well located. I befriended the local eatery on the corner at the end of the road, where my meal was placed before me before I had time to order. Kumar arranged a trip for us to Aleppo on the back water and to Munnar in the mountains. We also went to a performance of the Katahali. Wow it was just super fun for the five of us. I can highly recommend a stay here, look no further. Abrie Pepler South Africa

My wife and I stay at the Green House for 2 months. Kumar (the host) is very kind and made us feel right at home. The rooms/common areas are always kept tidy by a wonderful lady who comes once a day for cleaning & washing. Great location in a nice neighborhood. We had a great time and will be back!

Really enjoyed the homestay in Kochi. Kumar is a terrific host and cannot be more helpful or easy going. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Met two terrific young travellers from Australia just beginning their travels and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience of staying at the Green House, chatting in the evenings and finding some terrific food thanks to Kumar's suggestions. Highly recommended guest house as can see from all the recommendations. And sulok90... let me know how you chaps get on....Most enjoyable.

Kumar is pretty much our saviour!!!! After a long international flight we were warmly welcomed in the early hours of the morning by Kumar greeting us at the door and kindly showing us to our room. The room was very tidy, clean and homely and to top it off he also had a chilled bottle of water waiting to be consumed by our overly parched bodies. He also was amazing with recommending local foods (Sri Krishna cafe is a MUST for dosa) and also with getting an Indian SIM card. I DON'T THINK I WILL FIND A BETTER GUEST HOUSE IN INDIA!!!

Arriving at Green House Homestay after a long and tiring flight from Australia, Kumar welcomed us with such grace and kindness that we instantly felt as though we had arrived at the home of an old friend. Kumar is an incredibly helpful and lovely man, helping us throughout our 6 night stay at the Green House with EVERYTHING from the complex process of buying a local SIM card to giving us excellent recommendations for delicious local places to eat. He was always available to answer all our questions and even to have a good laugh and a chat when the monsoon rain kept us indoors. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the location was great. We love you Kumar! By far the best home stay in Fort Kochi!
