“Brilliant owner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Kumar was a fabulous host. He assisted my son and I with all aspects of our stay. He organised the tours we went on, shows we saw and i was appreciative of his very early morning phone call to bid us farewell and make sure the taxi had arrived. The location and cleanliness of the home stay was perfect. Thank you so much Kumar.

Staying in Green House Home Stay at the start and the end of our holiday was fantastic. The location is great, the rooms clean and the place has a lovely, welcoming atmosphere. We cannot praise Kumar enough for being the most helpful host, willing to assist in whatever, whenever we needed guidance, and even after we left the place.

We loved staying in this tranquil spot. Great hosts in Teresa and Kumar.
I started my trip to India here and it was a great base, with somewhere to sit out, and a mosquito free area inside.
Very comfortable.

We stayed at this homestay during four nights in November. After a long flight from Tanzania we got the greatest welcome from the host Kumar and his fantastic mother. Kumar organized someone to pick us up; one of the nicest and friendliest drivers we´ve met on our trip.
Charming rooms; simple but very clean with an attached bathroom. Also a little shared terrace which was very nice. Good location on Fort Kochin with great restaurants just round the corner. What you need is a map (which is given to you at the homestay) and probably some advice on where to go. Fort Kochin is extremely hard to navigate, you get easily lost!
We got all help we needed, Kumar was really helpful and could answer all our questions (which was many since we were brand new to India). In the end of our stay he even offered us a guide book to help us on our continuous trip.
One of the better homestays in India, would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a friendly, safe and charming place with a good location. Great, great, great place!

Many thanks!

I spent 2 weeks in Green House back in May 2011 and was thrilled about the place and its host Kumar. The guest house is nicely located near the center of Fort Cochin in a quiet street. It is clean and nicely furnished. Kumar is more than welcoming and provides all sort of useful tips, and helps you with any arrangements you may need, which makes you feel at home in every positive way. It is a great choice for a reasonable price.

I stayed here for 3 nights during my trip earlier this month, and am very pleased to have done so. Green House is a homely, pleasant, tidy and clean place to stay. The rooms are spacious, fresh and well-appointed. It is exceptionally good value for the price. There are so many good places just a short walk away to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner (I did cooking lessons while in Fort Kochi) that it was a good call to sort meals separately. As many others have said here, Kumar is an excellent host - really, nothing is too much trouble, and his advice, knowledge and contacts are invaluable; both he and his mum were incredibly attentive, helpful, patient and understanding - all of which helped me make the most of my time in Fort Kochi. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Green House home stay for two nights in November after reading some excellent reviews about its host Kumar on TripAdvisor. He really lived up to all expectations and was so helpful during our stay (and even before we arrived - arranging a taxi from the airport to the home stay). When we arrived he helped orientate us, showing us around the town and recommending places to eat and a cooking class. He even lent us a plug adapter for the rest of our Kerala trip, after the one we bought didn't work.

The guest house itself was nice, set on a quieter road. The rooms were clean and comfortable with A/C - all at a very reasonable price.

Thanks for all your help Kumar.
