Everything was fine until we met the owner of this homestay... We checked in after walking past and hearing from locals that this place was a decent budget homestay.

Ideally situated in the touristic area. You can walk to almost all touristic point. Quiet street (a luxury in India). And last but not least, the owner is really great. He is welcoming, explains you the city history and gives you good tips for restaurants and shops...without doing too much (also a luxury in India) :-)

My girlfriend and myself stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Very friendly family who runs the place and they are super helpful. The man made us a few maps of the best places to see and his favourite places to eat which is always a good tip! Near the beach and great shops. Enjoy!

We stumbled upon Spice Holidays on our second day of visiting Fort Kochi. Mr. Anthony, the host and owner graciously welcomed us and gave us immediate accommodation. 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 found this place by accident as was so pleased I did! Anthony, who runs it, could not have been more welcoming and helpful.
