“Wonderful place for families- excellent hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Myself and my aunt stayed at this wonderful place for 6 nights. We were extremely delighted with this wonderful place . Had a peaceful stay and the rooms are large and well maintained with large bathrooms, very hygienic. Hosts are extremely helpful, and caring. The place is very near to all the sightseeing places and you can go out and come back at your liesure, a number of times. The place has a strikingly beautiful ambience and is very peaceful.

We had a fantastic stay for 3 nights at Anns residency. We just loved the ambience. A very tranquil atmosphere. There was a cycle group while we stayed there and we thought it would be noisy, but we were surprised to note even when the hotel is full, it was so calm and quiet. Rooms are well kept, very clean and good service is provided. The owner Leslie, was always around and very helpful. And the breakfast, yes it is to be specially mentioned, it's great and filling. We loved this wonderful place and definitely look forward to coming here again.

After a bustling noisy trip to Delhi, me and 5 of my friends decided to visit God's Own Country.
We chose Anns Residency from recommendation by a friend who had stayed there in the past.
The peaceful and well maintained hotel was a delight to stay at. The stay was very relaxing and the location so peaceful and quiet. The Owner Mr. Leslie, gave us plenty of tips on just about everything and was very friendly. Had many eating joints nearby like Dal Roti, yummy food and loved being close to the beach .

I had just gone though some serious hard core traveling and arrived into Cochin totally bedraggled and worn out. I wasn't really sure where to go and told the auto rik at the Cochin bus station to take me to Ft.Cochin, that's all I had to go....he stumbed into Ann's Residency in Ft.Cochin and and as soon as I set foot into the very welcoming and hospitable place, all my cares went away and basically found it to be paradise. It is a residency or home stay with a wonderful family, Ann, her husband Leslie and their adorable daughter Maria. Great Place, great location, so helpful were they in booking flights, the backwater trip, and using their wifi computer. Sleeping under the mosquito net, listening to the monsoon rain and frogs sent me off to drreamland knowing a great breakfast and coffee was waiting for me...I'd stay there again in a heartbeat! Thank you family!!!!

Anns Residency, a small beautiful place. My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much here. Friendly people, silent and calm location, very near to beach. Rooms very clean, good breakfast, best in India. We recommend to everyone.

Stayed at Anns Residency , a lovely homestay that oozes earthy character and charm. The host Leslie Fernandez a friendly guy gives you a warm welcome and is very helpful in giving useful tips and arranging outdoor tours to enjoy your holidays. The rooms here are modern with well kept bathrooms with bath tub. The atmosphere is fresh, chic and stylish. There is a beautiful garden , charming and a serene place to relax. A sumptuous breakfast is provided in the outdoors. There is also a library with vast collection of books. We enjoyed our stay in this charming place full of character and friendly owners.

Coming from France and visiting South India with my wife, we followed the advices of the book "Guide du Routard" and stayed in Kochi at Anns Residency. The Welcome of M.Fernandez is perfect, the hotel is very clean , garden is very beautiful and M.Fernadez pay a lot of attention on it. Room was wide and there were AC and a bed protection against mosquitoes.M. Fernandez was very kind with us and book the reservation for a tour in the backwaters and also let me his computer to book an internet plane reservation.

It is one on the best hotel stay we had in India and I recommand Anns Residency for frech people visiting Kochi, in south India.
