This homestay is everything you could ask for in a friendly inexpensive homestay: friendly hosts, clean rooms (we had the balcony)lovely garden and centrally located in a quiet part of Ft. Cochin across from the park. David and partner are gracious and helpful and serve a delicious breakfast in the Portugese style dining room. YOu can't do better than this!

This place is in the middle of things and yet peaceful and with a beautiful garden. David and family make you feel welcome and cared for in their beautifully maintained home.The rooms are spacious and the service out of the ordinary. Highest recommendation - especially if you want to walk to nearly everything in Fort Kochi.

The name perfectly describes this place. Our hosts went out of their way to look out for us, help us and generally make us welcome into their beautiful, loved and sparkling clean historic home - which used to be a Portuguese spice warehouse. Breakfast was included in the shared dining room, leaving us free to explore the city for lunch... More

I travelled in India for a month and this was by far the best place I stayed. Our room was huge and the garden was beautiful. David welcomes you into his home and we really enjoyed having breakfast sitting around a large table chatting to other tourists. The location is perfect and the staff are the best. I was very...

From the outset David and his team were great- very welcoming and full of useful tips and ideas for restaurants and places to visit. The home stay itself is set around an immaculate garden and has pleasant spacious rooms with fan and A/C. It is located close to the sea and tourist sites in Fort Kochin. We had a great... More

The colonial home is beautifully restored, and the rooms are comfortable. Location is quiet but close enough to most of the main Fort Cochin attractions and restaurants. David and staff are friendly and very helpful. Garden and yard are beautifully maintained.

We stayed our 1st 2 days in Kerala. It is a beautiful oasis. I have stayed there 3 times the first being in 1996. David and Flowery are very helpful and friendly. The only downside was the very disappointing toast for breakfast. Needless to say we went out our 2nd morning.
