  • The location was perfect and George was so kind to give me tips and arrange a taxi to the airport as well as laundry for me. The room is large with an adjoining sitting room.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Kochi. Mr. George has been a great host. Not only he was prompt with the email communication and queries, he also recommended good places to eat and visit. The homestay is a 500 years old mansion where Vasco de Gama lived in his later years and it has been preserved with a lot of care. We highly recommend this place.

  • Vasco Guest House is in a great location. It is a very ancient, atmospheric house, like stepping back in time. It is very spacious and George is a great attentive and informative host. We would recommend staying here for an authentic experience.

    Sara2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed 4 nights at the Coconut Grove, it's a great location to begin exploring Cochin and the surrounding areas.RInci and Anthony's welcome was warm,friendly and approachable. We were treated to a lovely breakfast each morning, tell Rinci if you're not keen traditional Keralan food and she will oblige by rustling up an omelette or similar. Rinci also gave me a little map and pointed out areas of interest. If you like yoga try the sunrise yoga session on the terrace next to the Kathatlli Dance centre, it begins at 6.30 am and is a nice start to your day. It's only a few minutes away from the homestay. Thank you Rinci and Anthony for a nice start to our India trip.

  • We hade a very warm welcome at Antonys Homestay. We arrived much too early, but they arranged the rooms for us in a couple of minutes. Homestay is very clean and we had great breakfast. Antonys wife gave us a lot of Good Information what to do and how to geht around. We enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommanded!

    Anke2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Antony and Rincy's Coconut Grove homestay for one night and it was very pleasant stay overall. The house is surrounded by lush greenery, coconut trees and plantain trees. The room was a bit small than I had pictured after looking at photos but it was still very comfortable and neatly maintained. Towels and toiletries were laid out, water bottle was provided and we had a cupboard to store belongings. Bathroom had a good shower and very clean. Rincy offered to make us fresh lemonade as soon as we reached the home late evening. She provided us a map of Fort Kochi and explained the major attractions to visit and how to reach. The next day morning, we had the most delicious breakfast of fresh pineapple juice, pathiri (a thin rice pancake), vegetable stew and hot coffee prepared and beautifully presented by Rincy. For a homestay, the hospitality and care provided was of hotel standard. All major attractions are within 10 minute walkable distance, the beach is a 15 minute walk. As we had a night bus, we were able to store our luggage in the hall of the homestay. Rincy even offered her own home for me to freshen up before leaving for my bus since the next guests had already arrived for the other rooms. I would absolutely recommend this homestay for anyone visiting Fort Kochi.

    Sakthi Pradeepa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Clean & cozy room. You can pay a bit extra to have AC, but we didn't feel like it was necessary. Antony and Rincy are very kind and Rincy's breakfasts are excellent! They let us leave our bags fkr the day and gave us a place to freshen up and change before our evening train on our last day. The location is super convenient for exploring Fort Kochi by foot & just a short uber ride to Mattencherry. Definitely recommend a stay here :)

    Samantha2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Clean room. Good Breakfast. Accessible to tourist places. Warm and friendly hosts.

    Narasimha2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Anthony & Rincy. You are so great with people and understand each other problems. The authentic Kerala breakfasts were really great. For others who are reading this review - please note that Anthony & Rincy are really very humble Malayali family, and they try their best to make their guests comfortable. I have heard stories from them about North Indian people(especially from NCR) and how rude they were for breakfast, or sometimes size, etc. Remember you choose to have a homestay experience, and therefore you have no right to demands hotel-like amenities. If you want to shout at the hosts, I request you to go to those profit mongering commercial hotels.

    Nandan2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay, rooms were clean and comfortable. Rincy was a lovely hostess and breakfasts were tasty. Amazing value for money

    Takehiro2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet place, perfect for recovering from the 20 hour journey and acclimatizing quietly to India. Warm welcome from our hosts, always ready to help with a smile.

    Louise2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice homestay with beautiful family! The place is very close to the main attractions, it's also very quiet and peaceful. I recommand it definitely.

    Tatiana2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best! You could not find more helpful, thoughtful and kind host hostess and family. The residence is in a lovely quiet spot in a residential area. That said it is only a short walk to the seafront, ferries to Vipu or Ernakulum. The town is interesting and watching the shipping too. Breakfasts were great. Almost too much. Thank you for a great stay and I fully recommend you to anyone else.

    Nic2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Peniel Residency was great. Quick responses, flexible check in time, great location, and very welcoming hosts who were able to provide local tips and were nice enough to hook a brother up with a banana and a pack of biscuits when we arrived at midnight after not eating for 12 hours. The rooms are simple but clean and the house overall is beautiful. If we pass back through Kochi we will be staying again!

    Zachary2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Joice's place! The location is great - even though the house is kind of in a side street, everything you need is just around the corner. Joice, her husband and son Nikki also provided helpful tips and advise for us. We would definitely stay there again and recommend you do the same :)

    Caro2020-01-18T00:00:00Z

In summary, do not miss this address!

  • Anitha, her husband and her family were some of the nicest people I have met!! They went above and beyond in hospitality and we had such an amazing time at their home. The house is very beautiful, clean and in a central location. The highlight was definitely the family - we got a coconut on arrival, lots of recommendations and local tips and also amazing breakfast! I would highly recommend this to all!!

    Priyani2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best home stay in Kerala! We can strongly recommended this place. The room was very clean and tidy. Home is near to the city centre. Anetha was so kind, helpfull and lovely. She was making delicious breakfast for us and her husband is a great person also. We felt there like a part of family.

    Monika2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anitha is so nice and attentive to her guest needs. Her house is beautiful very well located in Fort Kochi and sparkling clean. We could enjoy our trip in Kochi thanks to her good advice and outstanding hospitality. Such stays like that are memorable and contribute to having a great journey ! It’s a no miss whenever you are in Kochi !

  • This is a Must Stay, especially for solo travelers! Anitha is a fabulous hostess, and just a lovely woman. They went out of their way to help me get adjusted to my first days in india. This space is clean, safe, and close to everything! Thank you so much for all your help and kindness!

    Carly2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Anitha and Sonson are super nice hosts. Never seen such a great hospitality. Apartment is spotless clean and both are very helpful in all kind of questions. The place is very central in Fort Kochi and very accessible to the beach and important sights. Both of them go the extra mile to make the guests feel comfortable. Anitha’s breakfast was the best and very local. If you want to get in touch with real locals, go for them. I can highly recommend them without any doubt. If you go to Cochin, don’t miss them.

    Marco2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The best place I've been so far in India. Great, warm, wonderful, always ready to help couple, who take care of all your needs. You feel more than at home, if only I had more time I would love to stay longer... I'll definitely recommend their home, so clean, everything is new, for they have started not long ago, close to all places you will need to go, but located in a small, quiet street. Just WONDERFUL.

    Ewa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at Ethen's Home. Anitha and Gregory were fantastic hosts, always ready to help with anything and very friendly; also completely aware of all problems European might have on their first stay in India. Delicious indian breakfast provided for Rs100. Appartement was perfectly clean and well protected against mosquitoes.

  • Firoz's accommodation is great. Excellent value for money despite outdated facilities. Everything is nearby and Firoz is super available. Personally I enjoyed the Tibetan cultural center next door for evening concerts and cheap and delicious meals. Excellent address for a few days to discover Kochi. Given the budgets all over the premises I extended without fear for my budget.

    Pierre2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Brendalee2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Five stars all around. A great budget place for backpackers. Excellent location for the price - right in town. Firoz was always available to answer questions and give advice. He also drove me to Acupunture appointments even though I told him I could take a tuk tuk. Thank you and see you soon!

    Ava2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • firoz is a wonderful host! very accommodating and friendly. we were on a tight time schedule and he helped us make the most of our time in kochi, by helping us book a backwater tour and giving us local tips and recommendations. he was very flexible in allowing us to have a late check in and keeping our luggage for a few hours after we had checked out. communication was easy and he was always reachable and ready to help. the place is super cute, the rooms are very nice and clean and the rooftop is a great place to hang out. the location is perfect, everything is within walking distance. we had a wonderful stay, thank you so much for everything:)

    Hendrik2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable and in good hands. Thanks a lot! Would love to come again :)

    Adelina2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Firoz is a great host. Helpful, knowledgeable, respectful, attentive, honest and kind and there when you need him whilst keeping a low profile. We only walked around Fort Kochi and got to know it quite well. We found the homestay to be in an ideal location. Walking distance to the water, restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. It is slightly tucked away from the main road (about 20 m) where you are just out of the action, but still a safe distance to walk alone at night. You can still hear some noise from the road including cars and people, but this should be expected if you want to be close to the action. The room we had suited our purpose. It was exceptionally clean, lockable door, lockable cupboard, TV, aircon, fan and bathroom. It was small (one of the smaller ones in the homestay), but we weren’t there to hang out in the room. The bathroom was basic, but sufficed and we were offered toilet paper on arrival. The homestay has a kitchen and communal area on the top floor with nice views. The kitchen was basic, but had all the necessities. The communal area was comfortable with books, travel info, games, etc. It also had a nice outlook.

    Alex2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Firoz is a very nice host. This place has a super location and the rooms are great value. Can recommend.

  • Devas Home Stay is the place we were looking for! Everything is close by. Me and my wife rented a scooter from a place that was literally 1 minute away from the place and went around Fort Kochi. The host is really kind and didn't interfere or disturb us in any way. Serene environment is what we were looking for and that's what we got. Totally recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Kochi.

  • Loved the stay here. Although it was a short trip, it was very comfortable. David and his family was extremely hospitable and made me feel at home. The place was extremely clean and everything felt at place at the home stay. The place is also very close to all the beautiful places at fort kochi. Something I really loved about the place was the chirping of birds that I could hear when I woke up. Would definitely stay here whenever I come to Kochi.

    Karapurath2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a good place for a one day trip in Fort Kochi. I suggest you rent a bike to explore that part of the city. David is really helpful for everything!

    Sébastien2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Charvaka2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • I spent my first 3 days in India in Davids place, and that was a relly good decision. He is very helpful, knows everything, and a super kind person, with good humor. The place is simple, yet nice and clean. Don’t know what else to stay, it is really a homely stay. Go and see it for yourself. :)

    Tamás2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • A bit far from all the main attractions of Fort kochi. But highly recommended for travelers who want to stay away from city life.

  • First make sure you eat breakfast. Sheela is an amazing cook and I enjoyed my meals at the homestay more than anywhere else. In fact after 4 days when I left I missed the food. Rooftop great for yoga, quiet, clean, peaceful and nice location. If you like to run it’s a great place to start early morning runs to the beach.

  • Linda is a very warm and welcoming host. She made my stay feel very comfortable. I’d recommend anyone to stay here when visiting Kochi.

    Sarah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Linda’s place is the only place you should stay in fort kochi! She’s so kind and loving and we immediately felt welcomed. The location is great, the place is awesome and comfy and the food was delicious. She gave us great local tips and let us have a late check out.

    Meadow2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Linda literally welcomed me with open arms to her homestay and from then on I felt really welcome and part of the family. Linda's cooking is superb and she went out of her way to arrange anything I needed including an overnight trip to Munnar. Highly recommended.

    Louise2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Linda is an experienced host and her local knowledge and contacts makes for a comfortable and interesting stay . Highly recommended for a quick stop over or longer period as I have now done both with this family .

    Jacqueline2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Linda is very welcoming, and has great knowledge of Kerala. She is also an amazing cook!

    Sumeet2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Linda’s place. The breakfasts were great as we were able to try typical Keralan breakfasts. We used the driver Linda suggested from the airport. I thought it was complimentary as it was offered and a fee was not mentioned, but we had to pay. This wasn’t a huge issue, but if I had known I would have at least explored alternative transit. Overall a good stay!

    Will2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Linda was a kind and gracious host. We were delayed at the airport and did not arrive until 3am and she still managed to greet us with a warm smile. We enjoyed trying her south Indian cooking each day and the idli, appam, and idlyappam? were easy on our stomachs. I liked the south Indian breakfasts so much I arranged a cooking class to learn to make one of them. I'm so excited to try it out myself when I return home! Linda showed me everything I need to know. We also arranged our backwater trip through Linda also which was convenient and saved us time making arrangements on such a quick trip, but I would have to recommend foregoing the included banana leaf rice lunch as I was sick after. We were on the first floor, so there were ground level mosquitoes. Be sure to take a trip to a grocery store asap, pick up a can of HIT spray, and spray the room 2-3 times a day and you'll sleep much easier! One of my favorite things about the location was that it was walking distance to a lot of great places to see and restaurants to try. Overall, our stay was pleasant and memorable thanks to Linda and her place.

    Elvin2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Linda is such a wonderful host that will make you feel right at home. Linda is full of kindness and will help you out with whatever you need. She knows lots of about the local area and will help arrange anything with a local touch. I will definitely look to stay again if I’m back in Kochi.

Superb location right in the centre of town with everything you could possibly need at your finger tips. Highly recommended for great value for money.

    Maël2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sam's place is located right next to Fort Kochi beach and the Chinese fishing nets - a short walk away from everything you'd want to see. The room is spacious and clean. Sam was extremely welcoming (even though we reached really late at night) and offered us a fantastic breakfast in the morning.

    Akanksha2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sam's place is a real find: perfectly located in the heart of the Fort, yet calm and peaceful. The room is super spacious and the breakfast delicious. There's no air-con, but all the windows have been fitted with screens and there's a large ceiling fan.

    Nick2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very centrally located. Most tourist places in Fort Kochi are at a walk-able distance. We cycled and walked around a lot. The place is also very clean and peaceful (a lot of beautiful plants!). It's a very spacious room with an equally spacious bathroom (which is always a major plus for me). Sam was available for help whenever we needed and the breakfast was good, too. Would definitely recommend.

    Aastha2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

  • India is often a land of uncertainty, as travellers, it is often hard to know just what a fair and correct deal looks like. Adam helped to break through this with his expert local advice, tips and connections. he is both charming, insightful and we found him to be a true man of Integrity. We have no hesitation I recommending this home stay in Fort Kochi.

  • Great stay with Benny and his family, top accommodation for its location in the heart of Fort Cochin and very clean, moreover Benny and his wife are very accommodating and of good advice I recommend. Eric and Murielle

    Éric2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation has independent access and it is away from busy roads (little alley). Spacious and well ventilated room overlooking green spaces filled with birds: original natural alarm clock ... We appreciated that all the openings were fitted with mosquito nets. Benny's wife is an excellent cook and the breakfast was delicious. This family is very welcoming and we had a very good stay.

    Christine2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Benny is a very attentive and helpful host. His wife prepares excellent Kerala breakfasts. The cottage is very well located, close to the main tourist sites of Fort Cochin. We did not have internet access during our stay.

    Cadaugade2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay. The apartment is very well located and Benny and his family are very good hosts. And the breakfasts are fantastic!

    Judith2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay with Benny and his family. We were warmly welcomed and immediately felt at home. The whole family is very warm and helpful and they give great tips for staying in Kochi. Although quite centrally located, the accommodation is very green and close to nature. The room is simple but pretty and very functional. From the small balcony you have a direct 'jungle view'. And the morning soundscape also sounds like jungle. ;-) Nevertheless, many sights can be easily reached on foot or by TukTuk. The best thing for us was the breakfast! Every day there was super delicious, freshly prepared typical Keral breakfast (hotness level adapted to European palates). If you are looking for simple but clean accommodation with a warm family at a very fair price, you will not go wrong here! Highly Recommended!

    Alexander2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place! Benny and his family are wonderfully kind and warm people and the breakfast was amazing! Benny helped us with arranging a long distance taxi driver, can highly recommend for a slice of kochin!

I stayed upstairs and it was really nice to have an outdoor spot to listen to the nighttime rain. thank you Lancy and Gladvin!

    Ginevra2019-04-25T00:00:00Z

    Vignesh2019-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, spacious, safe, decent and peaceful place. Got a nice and spacious cupboard. Mrs. Lancy was very kind and professional. I haven't had any issues at all during my week long stay here. Room's AC was little bit noisy at times but it saved me from the humid weather very much. Overall, I had a comfortable and peaceful stay.

    its a family run homestay, guesthouse, B & B with clean ensuite rooms, comfortable beds and wifi private entrance and key to guest rooms located away from the tourist crowd walking distance to all tourist attractions of fortcochin and mattancherry. guest can choose variety of treatments offered in our traditional ayurveda hut.
    About the property Adams wood house - a boutique homestay, guesthouse, b and b in fort cochin with 6 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.
    we are located in a quiet residential street between fort cochin and mattancherry. so its easy to explore both the places. both places are easily reachable by foot. we request our guest to explore the local things rather than touristic. when you explore more by foot you will know real cochin and the history of our Fort Kochi and Mattancherry.
  • It's a nice to spend your vacation .

  • Home,away from home:) Located in serene fort kochi neighborhood ,calm and peaceful environment . Kudos to Mr Firoz for preserving roots of kerala's culture and tradition so beautifully,it really feels comfortable whether he talks about yoga or ayurveda, absolutely local keralaite's perspective ,wisdom of his older generations,design and architecture and lots of random but important stuff. It was such a great experience to be at Adam's woodhouse. They have lots of in house activities to offer, already looking forward to be here next time.

    Lohit2019-11-29T00:00:00Z

    Steffen2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • lovely large room with plenty of natural light. Very clean and refreshing. the property is located close to all the main attractions. Firoz was a wonderful host, always theres when we needed help to organise our day. We rented a scooter from him too.

    Lihini2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Adams homestay for four days during my visit to the Kochi Biennale. Was travelling alone and got a comfortable, spacious room with good light on the first floor. The location is ideal for visiting the Biennale as most of the venues were in a 2.3 to 3 km radius. Firoz is a wonderful host and good guide for things around Kochi. He was very thoughtful in suggesting a package based on my arrival and departure. it was value for money. You can check with him for any information regarding tours and activities in Kochi. You can also rent scooters( subject to availability). Do spend some time talking to Firoz about Kochi. Some pretty interesting stuff to be learnt.

    Aditya2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is maybe the cleanest place I ever got in India! Everything is spotless clean and looks like new. The bathroom and kitchen are the nicest I ever had in India, almost like European standards. The kitchen is very well equipped and comfortable for cooking. The beds are very nice and soft with new good A/C (for a small additional charge) in the bedroom, something which was very enjoyable in very hot Kochi this time of year. The sheets and towels were also very clean and nice smelling. The appartment is on the ground floor with private entrance and more quiet than it is normal in India, a great relief. It is in a nice area and easy to walk to everything. Ah and not to forget, new moscito-screens on every window and even for the door...! Henry is a very kind and helpful host. Thank you very much for everything and if I am close again I will surely stay at your place again!

    Sabrina2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    María Alejandra2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here and Henry was a great host! He helped us getting to the property and made sure we got our bus to the airport ok during national strikes. Our flight wasn’t until 11pm so he let us keep the apartment until we left for the airport in the evening. Location is nice and quiet at night but only a 5 minute walk to the fort area. The entrance to the apartment is at the side of the family home so it felt like our own space. Beds were comfy and the apartment was very clean. The kitchen was great to be able to cook for ourselves. We opted for non a/c. The fan was fine at night but if I were to stay again I would get a/c.

    Rachael2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

The place was super clean and had everything I needed. I highly recommend his place if you want good value in fort kochi. Thank you so much for everything!

  • Taris and his team were wonderful hosts during my comfortable stay at 'Honolulu'. They were really helpful in guiding me as to where to visit while in Fort Kochi and in booking the backwater tour that he recommended which I thoroughly enjoyed. They made me a nice omelette, along with toast and coffee for breakfast each morning which I enjoyed. The homestay feels really close to nature, with the trees to the rear of the property and some wildlife. The location is very close (approx 10-15minute walk) to the centre of Fort Kochi and within 5 minutes to many nearby attractions. Overall it was an enjoyable stay, made all the better by very good hosts.

Having the ayurveda treatments literally 8 steps up from your door, is literally a blessing.

  • We had a really wonderful stay with Kevin's aunt. This exact room was double booked so he put us in a room in his aunt's home just across the way which was comparable. Very simple, very clean, quiet and peaceful with a strong fan. The breakfasts Kevin's aunt cooked us were divine and her smile from the heart. She gave me some sambar masala at the end of our stay because I expressed interest in learning how to cook it like her. We were very happy here. Also it is walking distance to everything in the fort.

    Hi , i-One's HomeStay is located in Fort Kochi. The popular Fort Kochi beach is only 300 meters from my home. My place is a perfect private place for enjoying the maximum of your vacation, which is few meters away from the road. So you will have the quiet atmosphere. My wife will make you super tasty homely food. And I have a BIKE RENTAL SERVICE too. We would love to host you in my space. Airport Shuttle available. Be my guest!
    Beautifully furnished rooms with attached bathrooms. If you are a health conscious person, then a work out machine is available at the balcony. If you love to read, then we have a library. Wifi is available for free. There will be a separate charge for AC. Be my guest!
    Set foot into Fort Kochi and you will be instantly transported to a different time period. This place is steeped in the history and culture of all who have occupied it through the ages. Its roots and essence are unique in its diversity. While walking through K. J. Herschel Road, one gets a glimpse of Fort Immanuel. This former Portuguese bastion, built in 1503, is a sign of the strategic alliance between the Maharaja of Cochin and the Portuguese Monarch. Further along the road one can see the Dutch Cemetery, housing the graves of former Colonists. People also love visiting the nearby Thakur House, a bungalow built in typical colonial era style. It now belongs to Thakur and Co., a renowned tea trading firm, but was once the residence of the officers of the National Bank of India during British rule. It was formerly called Kunal or Hill Bungalow. Another delightful location is David Hall, named after David Koder who was a famous occupant of the hall. However it is more closely associated with the Dutch Commander Hendrik Adriaan van Reed tot Drakeston. He is famous for his book on the flora of Kerala, ‘Hortus Malabaricus’. One can also visit St. Francis Church, the oldest European church in India. Built in 1503, it was here that the legendary explorer Vasco-da-Gama was originally buried. The Vasco-da-Gama Square is a beautiful promenade nearby where one can go for a relaxing walk. One can drop by Pierce Leslie Bungalow to view the waterfront verandas or Koder House, a fine example of the transition from colonial to Indo-European architecture. Vasco House is another must visit landmark as it is said to have been the explorer’s actual residence. It is among the oldest Portuguese buildings in Kochi. A visit to the legendary Bishop House is an enriching experience. The facade of the house has large Gothic arches and the building was acquired by Dom Jos Gomes Ferreira, the 27th Bishop of the Diocese of Cochin. The streets, shops and the residents operate at their own pace. Time is rather abstract in Fort Kochi, and visitors will feel instantly transported into another era altogether.
  • Great value for money and very very clean. Location was perfect. Would definitely stay again.

    Lee2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place hosted by some wonderful people in the heart of Fort Kochi. Enjoyed a comfortable stay here. The rooms are clean and the common areas are well maintained. Ivan is a great host. Will be staying here whenever I visit Kochi again.

  • Benu takes good care of its guests, no problem with the room, very good atmosphere in the common areas!

    Pierre Paul2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nirvana Inn is really a rare gem in Fort Cochin. It provides much more than just a room. It comes with a host that treats each and every guest with genuine care and warmth; it has an environment that can spark friendships with fellow guests; it has an undescribable way of bringing tranquility. I spent quite some time on the patio, as there were friendly guests, friends of the host Binu, and Binu himself! I was grossly unprepared for my Kerala trip and Binus friend shared some excellent advice and information to help me out with transportation between cities. I shared some great conversations, meals and drinks with some of the other guest I met on the patio, which was great as I was travelling alone. It was such a great spot that I was content with just sitting there for hours on end, simply relaxing. The Details Room Cleanliness: the bed sheets were freshly laundered, the floors shiney and the bathroom squeaky clean. Room climate The fan was sufficiently strong in keeping me cool (I was there in February). Mosquitoes: Did not have issues in the bedroom. I was on the second floor which has a foyer which definitely helped with keeping the mosquitoes out of the room. Location: 3-4 minute walk to the beach, and off of the main road. It's pretty much in the heart of fort Cochin so everything you really want to do is walking distance. It's about a 2 min walk to hotel 18 which has a popular bar (and the only one open past 10 I think). Plenty of unique cafes and decent restaurants around as well. Host: Excellent communication skills, is usually around the guesthouse and quick to respond. He's a very friendly individual and offered to drop me off to Mattancherry on my second day . We even went for lunch! He showed me a spot popular with the locals that I would not have found on my own. As I write this review in Munnar, I'm already starting to miss this place so I'll definitely be staying at Binu's when I find myself in Cochin again.

    Nirmal2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Binu does not have much experience, as the NIRVANA INN is very new! At the same time he is very careful to make his guests very comfortable from the first moment. He is full time available to help you in any circumstance, even In case you want to change room, but it was not my case. Late or very late check-in is always possible with a very small overcharge (450 rupees, in cash). Rooms and bathrooms are clean and on any of the 3 terraces is possible to smoke if other guests are ok with it. Shops to buy clothes or anything like fruit and vegetables are open all day long. Full of Cafe and restaurants at 150 mt away Binu has also good an honest friend (mr. Siyed) with Tuk-Tuk (AUTO/3 wheels, APECAR) to bring you everywhere you want (without getting money from shops or restaurants). I booked for 1 day only to see the place and the people here, but than I extended my stay up to 11 days. Small kitchen available on ground floor. Charge of 400 rupees to wash clothes and + 250 rupees everything will be also ironed in his house (it takes 24/30 hours). absolutely convenient! You will check out with ha big smile! P.s.: 1- Taxi from airport is expensive (1400 rupees), ask Binu for any other possible cheaper solution! 2- ATM are not always refilled with cash.

  • This house is in the heart of fort Kochi, Every place is at a walks distance. The place has the look and feel of old Portuguese architecture, and is easy to find, it is situated in a calm and quiet neighborhood, away from the hustle bustle of the street. Bernard uncle and Saji aunty were amazing hosts, they took us in at a short notice and let us check-in early in the morning as well. Thank you for that. They also provided us with a bigger room with more space and more beds, as we had booked small cozy, budget room for our travel. Aunty cooked delicious and variety of delicacies for breakfast every morning. Uncle gave us good information of the travel around, mode of transport and made sure we are comfortable. Overall it was a good experience and cultural exchange. I do recommend this place to others :)

  • Communication with the host, Mr. Bernard, was very good. Location is excellent and there is lots to reach in the nearby neighborhood. Room was upgraded free of charge. Family is very hospitable. It is a great room for a traveler on a budget.

  • Bernard was very friendly with a super sweet family. He was very helpful in helping us with places to go, and what to do. Room was simple with nice decor. Bathroom was basic and suited all of our needs. He allowed us to keep our bags at his place due to us having a late flight. Thanks again!

  • Bernard's place is amazing and his hospitality goes beyond barriers. We had a great time here and he made us totally feel at home! He has great tips on Kochi, the rooms are clean and comfortable, everything is walking distance (great food options around) and his wife makes the best breakfast snacks! We highly recommend this place :)

    Philippa2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The host is superb. You must stay here

    Shilpa2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • It's a beautiful home stay! It was my first time to go through Airbnb and found Uncle Bernard. He was very kind enough to give us upgrade to stay in a bedroom for the three of us instead of the Cosy budget room which we booked which were for two people. He also guided us well in terms of where to go and how. Aunty is a very sweet person, she makes yummy Pazhampori , vadas and masala chai. You must definitely stay here when you visit Fort Kochi. Thank you Uncle and aunty for the amazing hospitality. Best wishes from my family and I. Take care❤️

  • Sunil (and his wife) is a wonderful host, very kind, helpful and caring. The communication from the beginning was exceptional, he also gave us super clear instructions to reach his place, where we were very warmly welcomed. The flat is very big and spacious, two bedrooms and a big hall and a kitchen and balcony. One room even has A/C, which we were very glad for. The kitchen is basic but equipped to make your own meals if you like. There is even a washing machine on the balcony, a very nice extra. Sunil and his wife even bought 2 new pots for us, when they learned that we like to cook for ourselves. We were also provided with soaps and shampoos, enough for 1 week for the 2 of us, something i hadn't encountered before. But the best thing was the delicious breakfast Sunil cooked for us everyday! Each day another southindian speciality, catered to my special dietary needs. We enjoyed it everyday! We were also provided with drinking water each day. It was hard to leave this place..... Thank you Sunil and Suzanne for your outstanding hospitality, and i wish you all the best!

  • It is a great apartment to stay in kochi. Perfect check in. Impeccable welcome, excellent breakfast, cleanliness. Communication via efficient whatsapp.

    Carla2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time. Location was central yet quiet and private. Loved the indian breakfast. Sunil and his family were great hosts. Highly recommended!

    Will2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sunil and his wife were amazing hosts. Every day I had a different breakfast, always copious and delicious. They provided lot of drinking water, fruits, vegetables, coconut chutney, idli or other typical indian cooking. They were very helpful for the arrival, for letting me leave luggages for a few days, invited me to have dinner, were keen to chat with me. The appartment is rather big for the price, there is a very nice balcony, a kitchen, a big living room, AC in the bedroom. The location is ideal, so close to the beach yet away from the touristic streets, from there you can visit the more authentic mattanchery full of buzzing life, or go to the beach. Highly recommended!!!

    Mathieu2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice host. And the best location for anyone wanting easy access to multiple locations at Fort Kochi.

    Pratibha2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • There were many things that made me choose to stay at Bookworms. Firstly it was the name. Secondly, I was very tempted by the number of books on display in the pictures. Thirdly, the homemade breakfast was a nice little bow that tied up the entire package. What I got in my stay was so much more than I expected. To start with Sunil and his family - I have never met a more warmer and hospitable family. They made our stay very comfortable and very very helpful with local tips and anything else that we required - We also had a wedding to attend during our stay and Susan very kindly loaned me her iron so i could iron my clothes. The breakfast served each day was homely and delicious. We particularly relished the egg curry and appam served on our first day and the beef stew and appam on our last day. Sunil very kindly provided us access to all his books... and boy he has MANY! Sadly, as we were visiting for a wedding and family functions, we couldn't really take advantage of all the books available at our disposal. Another amazing part about the stay which I honestly didn't expect was that there was almost no mosquitoes in the room. I have relatives in Kerala so I have visited many times and mosquitoes are a huge issue. But Sunil has planned his homestay brilliantly which means that you won't have to suffer from mosquitoes here. In Cochin that's a huge plus! The property is just s short walk away from the Fort Kochi pier and it is located close to all the important tourist spots. We literally walked almost everywhere - and enjoyed it. I would most definitely choose Bookworms for any future holidays in Cochin.

    Reena2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sunil and his wife are lovely. They greeted us with wine and plum cake, and we enjoyed talking to them about their love of books and their work. We didn't expect it, but they made us an incredibly delicious breakfast in the morning. The apartment itself is basic. A great deal!

    Molly2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is huge, airy and with a lot of space to feel at home. The location in Fort Kochi is perfect as the apartment is close to everything and a quite place at the same time. The balcony is a nice place to sit outside in the morning for the fabulous breakfast you will get.

  • The most amazing and caring hosts! They helped us with transport option, let us check out late, and even drove us to the bus stop for our journey to the airport. On top of this a delicious home-cooked breakfast with coffee and fresh fruit for just 100 INR. We couldn’t have been more happy with our stay - thank you!

    Georgina2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • I would have stayed for a MONTH if time allowed. You are family here. Beyond that, you have a place that feels like home - full kitchen, filtered water, clean bathroom, desk. You’ll be treated by the warmest family who goes above and beyond for guests. A true example of the Kerala phrase, “Treat guests like god.” The food is better than local restaurants, most mornings we took a scooty to grab the newspaper, and I loved talking with their two smart, intelligent boys. Can not recommend this place enough. It’s perfect for a traveler of any age since you are centrally locates. The three rooms are completely separate given a nice balance of meeting new people and alone time. Love, love, loved my time here. Hope to host them when they visit New York City.

    Erik2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our best air bnb experience so far!!!! Anitha and sonson are outstanding hosts going the extra mile for us. The space is immaculate, no mosquito in sight and they provided us with everything we needed. I had an upset stomach and Sonson went to the shops to get some ingredients to make a drink to help me!!! Anitha is also an amazing chef and served us some home cooked dosas and tea and we also had some lovely fresh papaya. If we return to Kerala we will stay with Anitha and her family again for sure!! A beautiful family and we are very lucky to have met them!

    Raavaniya2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anitha and her husband are wonderful hosts, we came an hour early and got access to our room, they are wonderful couple with lot of warmth and caring attitude. The place is at the heart of fort kochi, everything is closeby ( restaurants, cafe, beaches). The place was sparkling clean , comfortable bed and nice lounge. We look forward to see you guys in couple of month. Cheers! Abhijit

    Abhijit2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic experience all around. Anitha and her husband offered perfect local tips, helped book experiences nearby, and provided fantastic masala chai and breakfast. I was able to walk practically everywhere from their house, and I could not have asked for a better stay. Thank you!

    Sid2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Travelers: STAY HERE :) This homestay has wonderful hosts, great food, water purifier and kitchen space, a very comfortable clean room and bathroom, and is on a quiet street but still very well-located. Anitha and her family took care of us, helped us get around and find things we needed, were very friendly and made us feel super welcome and at home. Couldn’t ask for a better stay! We had no trouble finding the homestay (apparently other did?). The address is correct and can be searched for in google maps while you have service, but if you are having any trouble, downloading the offline version of google maps and starring the homestay location is a good idea (do this while you are on WiFi/have phone service). When you get to the area, ask any rickshaw driver to take you to Njaliparambu Junction and walk the 1/2 block from there. There’s a sign in front. Thanks so much Anitha and family :)

    Calvin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • I and Lalita stayed at Anitha's place from 20-23 January 2020. Anitha is Superhost in true sense. Her prompt communication, attention to small needs of guests, loving and caring nature made us to feel at home, and as family members. Her home is neat, spacious, sparkling clean and at most convenient location in Fort Cochin. She helped us in organizing our program with good suggestions. She and her husband Solson served us yummy food in spite of my diet restrictions. We were lucky to enjoy company of both of them with their lovely kids when they took us around. I have stayed in many Airbnbs in India and other countries.. I would say this was one of the best homes and hosts. Thanks for everything. Prerana and Lalita Mumbai

    Prerana2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anitha and her family were some of the warmest, most helpful Airbnb hosts I have ever encountered. She and her husband always made sure I was well taken care of and well fed. They helped arrange a massage and a ticket to a theater performance and gave me lots of recommendations for exploring the area. The house is in walking distance of nearly all the tourism sites, but off the busy main streets so you have some peace. Overall this is a fabulous stay and highly recommended to anyone in Fort Kochi. Thank you, Anitha!

    Located in the breezy heart of Fort Cochin, the Peniel Residency is an amazing place for your vacation.The guests are provided with the best of services and the facilities. The place is neither too vast to lose your way to give all that u need.
  • Friendly and helpful family, clean and lovely location

    Jette2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • He is a nice man and arranged a ride for me to the airport at 3 am , the location is perfect

    Nahla2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was just what I needed, simple and easy. Nikki was helpful with my arrival and dealing with my lost luggage. Will book again when in Ft. Kochi!

    Amelia2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying with Joice and her family. They we all very very friendly. The location is great and we loved Kochi. We were a little disappointed with the local backwaters trip and would recommend others to go to Allepey instead. Would recommend the samosa w/ yoghurt at The Teapot ... OMG! And everything at Art Café was amazing.

    Wilson2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my 4 year old son had a very pleasant stay. The location is great and it is affordable. It is in walking distance to many great restaurants, som litterally around the corner. It is also in walking distance to the fish market and the nearby playground (which was a big plus for a 4 year old). It is a basic room, but spacious and clean. I was thankful that we had the option to buy extra AC when needed, since it was very hot. Roy also helped arrange activities if needed. Thanks.

    Suvi2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Joice’s place just for one night. However, we enjoyed it as it is in a really central area of fort Kochi and it was clean and comfortable

    Domenico2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great central yet calm place with very nice atmosphere and very helpful and friendly people. Highly recommendable!

    Nikolaus2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
