First of all, the owners uncle Basil and Auntie Anne are really sweet, helpful, and generous people. Before the trip, I have written to uncle Basil about the surrounding and suggestion...

I stayed here with my family in January for 5 nights. The rooms are modern and clean, and set within a lovely garden - about 25 minutes auto-rickshaw away from Fort Cochin. Breakfasts, cooked by Annie, were delicious and plentiful. We also had some fine evening meals. Basil, our host, is so kind and helpful, with a good knowledge of...

A charming private home-stay. It has stellar standards for cleanliness and hospitality. The property is well maintained and one doesn't have to think twice about staying here, The backwaters right behind the property is a strong plus. I spent my morning here and it was the kind of mornings one hopes for - silence, serenity, and a little sunshine. I...

This is a perfect homestay, crisp white sheets and fluffy white towels in this purpose built cottage. We travelled as a family of four and took one room in this lovely cottage. Our hosts were charming and very helpful organising taxis and trips and the food is just delicious, due to our tight timescales we didn't take an evening meal...

The owners of the property are real gem of the persons. They will go an extra mile to make you feel at home. My kids even commented that they feel that they have a house in Kerala. The food prepared by the Aunty was awesome. They allowed us to visit their kitchen and taught some culinary secrets also. Awesome family....

The warm hospitality of Mr Basil and his wife Annie was the most memorable part of our stay in this homestay. Annie will prepare almost any Kerala food as you like at a very reasonable charge. Since the homestay is tucked away from shops, we had all our meals at the homestay when we were not out sightseeing. Annie's food...

A clean and comfortable accommodation option for Kochin, close on hand to the backwaters, and run by a sweet family. Fort Kochin is a bit of a ride away in a rickshaw, so worth planning your sightseeing carefully. The food was nice and we had a great session on the backwater with possibly the best meal of our Keralan holiday....
