Johnson and his family were very welcoming during our 2 day stay with them. We had delicious keralan breakfast on the little balcony and had a home-cooked feast one evening. The room was big and clean, not luxury but everything you need. It's about a 15 min walk or cheap rickshaw ride into the centre and less than a 10... More

The place is amazing and very well located. The room was big and clean, with a private bathroom (also clean). The family atmosphere is lovely. Unfortunately, I was sick for most of the time, and it got worse on the last day. They took good care of me. Since I was feeling very weak, I didn't have the energy or... More

Johnson and Elisabeth are the most generous and kind hosts. They let me come in and sleep at 5am for no extra charge. Always checking and caring to see how I was enjoying my time. And gave me an abundance of food and hospitality. Made my time in Kochi one of my favourites, thank you.

Hotel was really accomodating, service was terrific, staff were helpful and you are in the middle of everything without all the noise!! We were in the centre of Fort Cocin, close to the beach fishing nets, restaurants and the market. Would certainly go back there!!

We had a really comfortable night here on our way back to Ooty from Alleppey. The room was clean, the bathroom was good - with a lovely hot shower. We paid a supplement for A/C in the room - the a/c did work but it was not sensitive to the temperature setting - the room got very cold! We were... More

I had a nice stay here in Fort Cochin. Johnson and Elizabeth are lovely people and their sons are also great! I enjoyed spending time with the family and Johnson had great suggestions for activities and good places to eat (as well as transport). It's a little bit out of the main action in fort cochin which is fine if... More

We stayed 1 night with Johnson and left early the next day for Munnar but we would have liked to stay longer. Room was very clean and comfortable and family were very welcoming. The area waa quiet and a we were short pn time Johnson arranged a ruk tuk tour around the main.sights for us. Amazing value for money!

Truly recommended with good energy, family atmosphere and very helpful Johnson. Well situated in beautiful area, close to local life, very good food, Indian art centre. We felt like at home and we would like to come back again to have another experience of Kerala, good people around. Clean, safe and cosy rooms. Priceless ambient. Very good value.
