He made the login process a matter of few minutes and gave us a detailed explanation of the background and history of Fort Kochi. These snippets of detail were very informative and interesting....

I chose this home stay based on the price and location. It's great value for money for the setting, just steps away from cafes and the fishing nets. If you want cheap and cheerful this is it. I stayed in the more expensive rooms in the new block which was light and airy. Good protection from the mosquitos Wifi pretty...

After visit to many places, hotels, and homestays in India I highly suggest to stay here. The rooms are extremely clean, the street of the location is so quiet near from the most important places in Kochi. Besides, Mr. Anthony-the owner- knows everything that the tourist must need and have to know, trips to Kerala, outdoor Tours at the right...
