We were the first time in India and booked this nice homestay from germany, which as it turned out, was the best decision we could have made. The transfer to the hotel in the middle of the night was no problem and everything we planned with Lesley (tour to munnar and the backwaters), the nice owner of the residancy, did function very well. The rooms are very nice and clean, with ac and moskito net. There is a nice restaurant with a very friendly crew, good breakfast, and when our son arrived a few days later it was no problem to get an additional bed in the room. All in all I would in any case recommend this residancy and I would surely book it again, if I come back one day.

After reading reviews on trip advisor - we made booking for this hotel - a great experience. We booked 2 rooms in this hotel for 2 night with a family of 4. A great value for money. A nice bread and break fast feel to this place. Owner is courteous and tries its best to accommodate small reasonable request. They have simple and healthy clean break fast menu - a good jump start for the morning and if you need small refreshment in the afternoon - they have good choice.
Its a family run business with a nice boutique touch to it in rooms. Luckily the 2 rooms we had were comfortable enough for nice sleep at night and clean bathrooms.
Close enough to walk to market or near by restaurants / attractions in fort kochi.
You will enjoy your stay.

We stayed here briefly before moving to the Delight down the road, which we personally preferred.

There is a nice entrance and garden with birds in cages (which I don't really like) and a huge statue of Mary.

The owner is friendly enough but a bit direct and cool. We didn't really feel that welcomed, nothing much, but just a vibe we picked up.

Our room was the last one and on the ground floor by reception. The staff seem to all bring their young children / babies to work and although this is nice, the cots were right next to our room and so there was a lot of noise in our room. I doubt this is a problem in other rooms though.

The bed was hard, but no worse than normal, and although the bathroom was a little shabby it all functioned well.

Located very close to town but also next to an old water tower which we believe attracted more mosquitoes; we were bitten a lot here despite netting on windows, bed netting and a plugin repellent!?

Overall this is a good choice to stay in Kochi, even if there are a few better options imo. But if they are booked then you'll likely have a good time here.

We thank you for your review of our property and we are sorry for the inconveniene you had. We wish to clarify the following. We were fully booked when you came. We specifically told you so that we had just one room downstairs which we were not willing to give. Since you insisted we gave you this room. There are mosquitoes all over Kerala and we have done our best to protect our guests. Your belief that an old water tank causes more problem in our building is just your imagination, as you stayed in another property which is also the same distance from the water tower. Your assumption that staff come to work with their young children/babies is wrong. None of our staff come to work with their babies, it was our daughter visiting us with her children and that was why we were hesitant to give the downstairs room. We have many pets like doves, ringdoves, diamond doves, lovebirds, cockatoos and also fishes in tanks which have been with us for many years and we really like them. Sorry you don’t like them

I had stayed there last year and liked it, so I decided to book it again this year and still liked it! It is a clean, quiet place, the breakfast is good, it is close to everything you want to see in Fort Cochin and it is not cheap but affordable.

We stayed here with family for 3 nights and then returned again twice before leaving India.We arrived early morning before check in time and the hotel was full, but Leslie the host was kind enough to give us one room for immediate check in .We had booked two rooms as we were travelling with children and he made sure that we got the other room as soon as the guest left even before check in time.The entire place is very homey and rooms are neat and comfy. We could stay here for only 2 nights on arrival as they were fully booked and we came back here again after a small tour. . It was just like coming back to your own home.The family is very helpful and our children were relaxed and looked after very well. The excellent breakfasts(the best in India) and the restaurant serving some great dishes made our stay at this place more pleasant. Location is great, away from the busy streets and very close to all the touristic places. Would definitely come back again.

Room Tip: We stayed in standard rooms and deluxe rooms . Both are very neat and tidy. Deluxe rooms are biiger...

the rooms are clean and wonderful. the beach is very close by and anns also has a real lovely restaurant which saves us the trouble of having to elsewhere in search of food.
lovely place made me feel at home hope to come again.

Room Tip: rooms with balcony are lovely they offer a good view of the garden
