We visited Fort Kochi in February 2012 and had wanted to stay at Johnson's Homestay because we already knew him as an excellent rickshaw driver from an earlier visit.
However, his homestay was fully booked. So we only visited, saw the place, talked with him and his lovely family - and were invited for dinner together with the B&B-guests in the evening. What a lovely experience! We sat on the floor, enjoying the delicious meal prepared by his wife. The hospitality, the open-mindness and the sense of humour made it an unforgettable evening.
We liked the rooms we saw (ensuite bathrooms) and we enjoyed the roof terrace and the genuine village atmosphere, where neighbours and friends popped in and out.
By the way, the Jonhsons' two sons are gorgeuos. What a lovely family to stay with!
A tip for you: If you cannot stay at Johnson's Homestay, at least treat yourself to an unusually interesting rickshaw sightseeing in Fort Kochi. Johnson knows all the "secret" places, and he speaks English.
