Room service, ensuite rooms, hot water, and free WiFi ensure your stay is comfortable. If you are looking for tours and guide, the help desk is there at your beck and call. The terrace and the car park sit-out are spots that you can unwind and relax if you are planning to stay indoors for a bit. Recliners and easy chairs make life easy and lazy.

    Exploring Fort Kochi

    The location of the homestay is hands down a winner. All you inquisitive travellers will find that the historical sites and places are all within walking distance from the property. You could start your day with a walk to the Fort Kochi beach or leave it for the end of the day to see the sun set. Chinese fishing nets are a must-visit location with evenings being the preferred time as you could get an Instagram-worthy image of the fishing nets silhouetted against the setting sun. St. Francis Church and Santa Cruz Basilica are also within a walking distance. Other landmarks of historical and cultural significance that you can include in your itinerary are the Jain Temple, the Indo-Portuguese Museum, the Jewish Synagogue, and Jew Town. The Jew Town in Mattancherry is famous for its antique shops that line the streets. Colonial buildings coupled with these shops add old-world charms.

    Booking The Rooms

    The room rates on various third-party booking websites peg it at INR 1500 and upward {off season rates}, but we suggest you make an enquiry with the homestay.
