Sunshine homestay was exactly what I was looking for when I arrived in Fort Cochin. It has a perfect location, nice clean rooms and an outside seating area. The owner is friendly and for 400 rupees a night I have zero complains! Would stay here again in a minute.

The homestay offers all what is needed, with good wifi, and especially a very calm street, even if very close to Fort Cochin's main attractions. There is also a kitchen that can be used by guest. Always usefull if you want to make your own breakfast or other.

Every traveler should stay here. for one you cannot beat the prices, the chill vibe, the location in Fort Cochin and the hosts. Extremely open and helpful, the hosts see you as more than a customer and go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. Furthermore, you don't feel like you're being sold something constantly either even... More

Very simple non a/c double room with own bathroom for 500 rs per night without breakfast. The owner was very friendly and helpful. However, a bit more cleanliness in the bathroom and love too detail (no shelves etc) in the room would've been nice. Still - if you're looking for a simple budget accomodation in a central location - this... More

I visited here on a friend's recommendation but was so disappointed. When I entered the room, there were quite a lot of hair on the floor here and there which was obviously not mine. It just gave an impression the room was not cleaned and ready properly. The bathroom gave off stale smell to the small room. No amenities were... More

Incredibly nice and helpful staff who took us across town to find a tailor for the sari blouses we had just purchased. Cons: no hot water (it didn't matter too much though given the climate) and no musquito net (-> we... More

Stayed at Sunshine for a week, the room I had was very clean and comfortable with an en-suite, there was a kitchen which I could use and facilities for washing and drying clothes. The homestay is in a quiet area close to the town, and ferries. Nice places to eat are close by. This really is value for money and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sunshine Home offers a quiet place in which you can get some peace of mind. Opened only a few weeks ago, the building and interior are new. It is located in Fort Nagar, which is just a few minutes walk from the bus stand, the Chinese fishing nets, the beach, Princess street, Santa Cruz Basilica and St. Francis Church. The rooms vary from a single-bed room with a shared shower, to double-bed rooms with included shower. During the evening time, you can relax and catch some fresh air on the roof, or just choose to dry your cloths there ;) ... more   less
