“A nice affordable stay.”

We were here for 2 1/2 months. Sam and Julie were wonderful friendly hosts. Within walking distance of necessary amenities in a picturesque location. I would return.

Very much hospitable hosts. Comfortable stay in a good location. We had good time travelling in boats and walking around during the monsoon days. Happy that the heavy rains were in the nights. We walked to Mattancheir and other places. Walk is the best way to get a feel of the place - a glimpse of the past centuries . Recommend to all our friends.

“Excellent stay at comprehensive cost”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

In Kochi we are welcomed by very cooperative smiling owner Mr. Sam and Julie. He gave full 10 minutes introductory speech giving information about nearby tourist attractions. Rooms were nicely decorated with amenities like filtered water, hot shower for 24 hours, towels clean bedsheets and pillows. Keraliets tasty breakfast was free and stomachfull.

In a comprehensive cost you get huge villa kind of house with tiny sitting area, Dining area, huge bedroom, clean toilet with all toiletries. You also have a good kitchen with basic utensils where you can cook on a lazy rainy if needed.

Location is safe, peaceful, scenic and walking distance to the ferry boat for Ernakulam city. You find Santa Cruse Basilica and beautiful old churches nearby. Its around 25 Km away from Kochi airport. Not too much options for a meal in adjacent areas. However you can have seafood and drinks at beach side where Chinese fishing is done.These beach side resorts caters foreign budget tourists.

I stayed in Sam's room upstairs for 10 days. There is a private entrance always well lit in the evening, and an outer hallway that keeps the bedroom cooler and enclosed. There is an open field in front of the house so it is a pretty quiet location. The side road the house is on is 1 minute from all the life in the tourist area, but without any disturbance. Sam and his wife are a quiet, well-meaning couple who helped me with getting a phone and train ticket which was extra and appreciated.
