About the property
Adams wood house - a boutique homestay, guesthouse, b and b in fort cochin with 5 rooms is now opened for tourist who looks for a clean, comfortable, safe and friendly stay in fort cochin.

we are located behind saga in a quiet residential street of fort cochin.

walkable distance to jewish town and fort cochin chinese nets. easily reachable to alleppey, varkala, munnar, wayanad, kumarakom, kodanad, athirapally and other tourist places by road

Location – neighborhood description
CHINESE FISHING NETS - These fixed, cantilevered fishing nets, at the entrance of the harbour and along the backwaters, were introduced by traders from the court of Kublai Khan. Records show that they were first erected between AD 1350 and 1450. The best place to watch these nets is from Vasco da Gama square, a narrow promenade that lies parallel to the beach.

DUTCH CEMETERY - Consecrated in 1724, here’s an authentic reminder of the many men and women from Europe who came down all the way to play out their roles in the colonial 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Open only to group visitors.

FORT COCHIN BEACH - An ideal place for an evening stroll and to watch a spectacular sunset. Bathing and swimming are not recommended here. The colourful carnival at New Year’s Eve is a feature of this beach. Other pastimes include sampling gourmet seafood, shopping for shawls, carpets, handicrafts, and exotic trinkets; or watching a Kathakali performance, the traditional and brilliantly colourful dance form of Kerala.

INDO-PORTUGUESE MUSEUM - Located within the compound of the beautiful 1506 Bishop’s House, the museum established in a seperate building showcases artefacts like statues and coins left back by the Portuguese.

PARADE GROUND - Covering more than four acres, this large open ground was used by the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British for conducting military drills and parades during the colonial years. The defence establishments of these powers were housed in some of the elegant buildings surrounding the ground. Located adjacent to St Francis’ church, the ground today serves largely as a recreation and sporting turf.

SANTA CRUZ BASILICA - Originally built by the Portuguese, this church was elevated to a Cathedral by Pope Paul IV in 1558. The church was totally demolished by the British who took over Cochin in 1795. Later Bishop Dom Gomez Ferreira commissioned a new building in 1887. Santa Cruz was finally proclaimed a Basilica by Pope John Paul II in 1984. The basilica, situated close to the St. Francis Church, has some beautiful paintings. Open 5.30 AM to 12 Noon, 3 PM to 7.30 PM. Sunday 5.30 AM to 12 Noon, 4.30 PM to 7.30 PM. Tel: .

When we arrived, Firoz asked us to go upstairs and that we would find the key there. He did not even have the courtesy to show us into the room. We had to go down again and ask him where the room was. The so-called "wooden" room itself is quite small, the bathroom looked bigger. There were lizards and cockroaches in the room. There was no soap or a towel or toilet paper in the bathroom. There was no hot water either. The pillow covers were dirty and no Wifi password was given to us. This is supposed to be a homestay, but we barely felt at home. Don't be fooled by the pictures. Our stay here was quite disappointing to say the least.

thank you for writing ur review. we are not new in this industry and we take care of our guest needs very well. and our valued guest reviews shows how we are doing we know we cannot make everyone happy all people are different. specially local people hav more complaints ours is a homestay and most of our guest are international tourist. they never had any complaints like this. when u have food inside rooms it invites lizards and cockroaches and we cannot do anything. guest should avoid eating inside rooms. regarding amenities : we keep 2 small soaps, 2 towels and 1 toilet roll. hot water works on geycer. when u book 1000 rs. room what else u expect if u were looking for something special its always better to stay in big hotels our tourist stay with us to know the culture, cuisine and to get family atmosphere and we are happy with our guest. guest read online reviews before they book and its guest choice to stay with us or not. hope i replied to ur comments. have a good day

A quiet residential location, it was about a 45-minute walk to Fort Cochin where we spent most of our time. By auto rickshaw, we were about 10 minutes away, so we ended up using that mode most times. Unfortunately we had a mosquito problem in the room, so used mosquito repellent liberally. All in all, the price is right.

Response from Firoz:
thank you ms. julie for ur comments. we inform our guest to keep the doors and windows closed from 6 pm. i noticed that ur door was opened. to get fresh air i had kept the windows open ( windows have mosquito net ) we also kept mosquito repellent in room which u can plug in if required i will look into it and do the neeful using some lemon grass oil
