Well, that went out the window quickly. Homested is an absolute haven in fort kochi. The property itself is spacious and modern, our room was utterly luxurious, with...

This was our second time staying at Homested and that obviously means that we'd loved it earlier.

Dev and his wife were perfect hosts and were able to...
