It was my first ever solo trip and that's why the priority was safety. Sam's residence significantly exceeded my expectations not only in terms of being safe but also the cleanliness, hospitality and comfort. There is a spacious bedroom which looks exactly like in the picture. Apart from that, they have a small dining place, a bathroom and a kitchen which was locked since I did not want to use it but they open it if you want to cook.
Sam and Julie totally make you feel at home. They even helped me with getting around and booking some local activities for me. They recommended a restaurant which turned out the best of all the places I had eaten at.
Initially I had planned to stay there for 2 days but I extended it to 4 and still felt bad while leaving.
Sam David is friendly and helpful, and will be there as needed while still allowing complete privacy if desired.
The unit is upstairs over the main home. It's in a secure, friendly neighborhood. It's approx 500 meters walk to the beach and most of Ft. Kochi's historic attractions.
Wifi was slow, but frankly we weren't there to be online! Too much beauty outside to miss! We were thankful for the connection when a eh needed it.
Suggestions:. The hosts do not leave the fridge on, which I found inconvenient when I wanted to keep things in the fridge to be chilled, or ice to be frozen. Also, there's no water filter system in the apartment, so be prepared to either boil and cool water for drinking, or haul it back with you to the unit (should you need filtered drinking water. If you don't, not an issue). I loved having a kitchen to use and a single gas burner, we made tea twice a day, thanks Sam!
It's a reasonably priced unit. I will recommend this place not because the stay was adequate, but because the host was exceptional - he was kind and helpful, and did go out of his way to assist us on several occasions. He also brought us boiled water from his home downstairs, upon our arrival, when I commented that I was surprised there was no drinking water available to us when we arrived.
I will note that we are a multicultural couple, I'm from Alaska, USA, and my partner is Indian born and raised. He would have liked to see more basic amenities, such as the water availability and the fridge being left on. Perhaps that can be done for those who request it done in advance.
Again, my many thanks to Sam David. The place is fine and the host is great. You'll not regret staying here. Cheers!
Sam was a very accommodating host. He was there if I needed him, but left me alone when I wanted. The accommodation was exactly as described. It is in a perfect location for the Kathakali dances, Fusion restaurant, and the Chinese fishing nets. It is a good walk to Jewtown where you can get fantastic photos.
The area is very safe and quiet. The accommodation is private and secure.
The facilities are simple but very reasonably priced for the area.
Thank you Sam for looking after me.
We stayed 5 days. Sam was a very gracious and kind, warm-hearted host. He was very helpful with advice for restaurants, assisted us in getting our laundry washed, and even brought us an english language newspaper we requested. The room is very large, with complete privacy, in a location very central in fort kochi town. The room is very warm if you're not accustomed to the heat, but has a ceiling fan, which helped a lot. Overall a great experience and hope we can return.
We stayed a few nights at Sam's place which was set in a peaceful, pretty and private area in Fort Cochin. Close by are many cultural activities. Sam is a great host, a very helpful and thoughtful guy. The apartment was lovely, very clean and secluded. Thanks Sam we really enjoyed our short stay with you, wish we could have stayed longer.
Sam greeted us warmly and explained how the shower worked and the process to avoid problems with Mosquitos. He supplied water and loo roll and offered guidance on places to visit and eat.
