David and Flowery were perfect hosts and we really loved staying their beautiful home. Our room was spacious, the WiFi worked well and although it was very hot we were able to rest in our cool room in the afternooons and sleep well each night. It was never too much for them to arrange drivers for us. The gardens are...

The Delight Homestay is perfectly located within the very centre of Fort Cochi – right on a corner of The Parade Ground. The outside of the building is beautiful and the gardens a cool respite from the heat of the day (if only there were somewhere to sit and enjoy them!) Our room was on the ground floor with limited...

Last minute booking which turned out to be a delight! We had a beautiful room set in the lovely gardens. The property is close enough to walk to restaurants, bars and shops but far enough to be peaceful. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The hosts are charming and Henry was most helpful. Excellent value for money and would...

A taxi organised by David and Flowery picked us up and we arrived in this ideal and peaceful corner of Fort Cochin and felt immediately at home. The room was good and reommendations for restaurants led to some fine eating experiences. Worth noting is that we arrived in the middle of the Biennale which was superb. It lasts for three...

Great location within a 5 minute walk to the centre of everything. Hosts were lovely, helpfully and friendly. The original Dutch accommodation was spotless clean and full of character. Gardens were beautiful. Highly recommended.

This is a fine location: away from the bustle, but close enough to be on the waterfront or "town" in 5 minutes. The place has a period charm and we were pretty comfortable in a room on the upstairs balcony. David and Flowery are good hosts and served a welcome breakfast!. I would certainly aim to return there when next...

This is a wonderful, friendly, restful place to stay. The rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. The building is beautiful and has a lovely garden. Breakfast is served at the family table. The location is quiet yet central. You are made to feel special here.

If you want a clean, homey, inexpensive place to stay in Kochi, this is it. It is close to many tourist attractions. The owners, David and Flowery are great hosts. We enjoyed our stay there and would definitely stay again.

We stayed twice in November, for a total of a week, and would thoroughly recommend this homestay. It is a beautiful large colonial era house overlooking the parade ground and perfectly situated in Fort Kochi for a range of excellent restaurants. The rooms are large and airy, with fans and air-con, the beds are comfy and the place is nice...

We stayed here for just one night as we extended our stay in Kochi due to the Indian money situation. The room was lovely and well furnished. The owner was very friendly and the garden area is stunning. Breakfast was included in the rate but is little basic (egg/toast & cut fruits). Would recommend a stay here if you want...
