A lovely couple who made our stay very easy and pleasant. Rooms were a good size and very clean. David arranged our transport to the airport in the morning and cooked us a lovely breakfast before we left. I would recommend to all and will use again on next visit to India.

This place is in the middle of things and yet peaceful and with a beautiful garden. David and family make you feel welcome and cared for in their beautifully maintained home.The rooms are spacious and the service out of the ordinary. Highest recommendation - especially if you want to walk to nearly everything in Fort Kochi.
