“Great stay.”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We stayed here at the end of our trip, and we were really grateful that we did! Sandeep is really easy going yet really attentive, a great communicator (he studied his masters in Australia, and has great English), and has put a lot of care into this place. We stayed in the Emerald room, which had gorgeous views, very convenient location, hot water, a comfy bed, and a great living/dining/kitchen space attached (which, as we were the only ones there at the time, we were outrageously lucky to have all to ourselves)!
Owners of this place go the extra mile, and it provides a great blend of local support with the space to have your own space.
Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We loved the Emerald room. Best views! If it's a rainy time though, you may want to diamond room...

This place was amazing. Not only the location but also the professional and wonderful staff. Binu was a great host and he made my holiday just perfect! The most friendly staff was always ready to give some advice or to help you with whatever you needed.
The rooms are very clean and the view is fantastic! I recommend staying in Fort Beach Service Apartments HIGLY!

one of the best located and managed service apartment in the heritage city of Kerala, Fort cochin. The view from the apartment is fantastic, with the overlook of cochin's shipping channel entrance and all the heritage buildings around.

Apartment consists of well maintained and furnished 3 bedrooms, a well equipped living room and a kitchen.
All the tourists destinations are in and around the apartment. The very famous saint Francis church, Fort cochin beach and the Jewish synagogue is at a walking distance from the apartment. Fort cochins best Seafood restaurant "Seagull" and the kashi's arts cafe is also at a walking distance .....
Mr.Sandeep the owner of the apartment is an awesome host and is ready for all the help any time of the day. congratulations to you and keep up the good standards. I will recommend this place highly and let all my friends know about your apartment.

India is such a fully alive place to visit, sure it suffers from infrastructure problems, water and electricity supply issues, road congestion and dodgem cars and clamor of car, truck, bus and motorbike horns, but as always it is the people that more than make up for these deficits. No more so than at the Fort Beach Apartments. The owner Sandeep has stepped back from the day to day management of the apartment recently and has employed Binu who has a Master of Hospitality and brings his customer service and business administration skills and knowledge from the hotel industry where he was previously employed. Binu is ably assisted by Bregeethamma in the day to day house keeping.

Fort Beach Apartment is in the block of apartments directly opposite the Brunton Boatyard Hotel, I can't recall seeing signage but if you are a first time visitor just ring Binu and they will be waiting, I'm sure they could also easily arrange for you to be picked up. If you arrive unannounced just go down the drive to the back of the apartment block where the cars and motorcycles are parked and where the entrance is and take the lift to the third floor, turn right of of the lift and you are at the apartment door.

Sandeep has taken an existing large apartment and created three modern and quite stylish bedrooms. So you have your own private retreat area, ours came with ensuite and private balcony overlooking Brunton's and with glimpses of the harbour. The three bedrooms share a common kitchen and entertainment area, the kitchen is available to guests and there is a flat screened LCD TV and stereo system, dining table and armchairs, all good quality furnishings as are the bedroom furnishing which have comfortable beds and pillows. The bedrooms are airconditioned and have ceiling fans. We traveled in early October and the weather was mild to warm but not really hot enough for airconditioning. I didn't see a mosquito in the apartment the three days we were there and the windows in the common area were open until dusk, Bregeethamma however did tell me that she experienced mosquitoes in her house in another part of Fort Cochin.

So from what I have shared so far you can see that by staying at this apartment you get a good quality hotel room at a fraction of the price of Brunton's across the road with the addition of extra space and convenience of a cooking and living area. We didn't cook, why would you when there is so much choice and you can easily order in Keralan food. The common area is great for interaction with others, but again you don't have to if your don't want to. What set this apartment choice apart from other choices is what I began with and that is the people.

For Binu and Bregeethamma nothing is too much trouble, they can arrange anything you like and as locals always on site or available they can answer all your questions and point you to the hidden places which only the locals know. So living here is like living with your own personal concierge. Whats more I sensed that they just liked people so this was no chore for them, they were not just going through the customer service motions, there appeared a genuine desire to give you an experience of Keralan hospitality. You want local food, no problems, laundry done, no problems, local tour, no problems, try a particular home made dish, no problems, constant chilled drinking water, no problems.... and so on. Sandeep and Binu even took us our for breakfast at a well known (to locals) place and gave us a personal tour of Fort Kochi, telling the touts we were locals to keep them otherwise occupied. Good personalised care and genuine non manipulative hospitality are this places hallmarks.

Sandeep is to be commended on his choice of people who will continue to maintain and grow his business into the future. The problem of course as you would have already gathered that with continuing 100% ratings it is going to get harder and harder to get a booking, go now while you still can!! We will miss Binu and Bregeethamma.
