We, myself, wife & 2 kids live in Fort Cochin on Beach Road and are just a stone's throw away (1 km) from the town, local bus stand, ferry, places of interest and historical significance, in an excellent neighborhood. The beach and the remnants of the old Fort (from which Cochin got its name) is just a 5-min walk down the street; there is a walkway leading to the fabled Chinese fishing nets, fish vendors - from where you can buy the fish & get it fried at shops opposite. We started the home-stay on the 1st floor in 2015 with three rooms ( bathrooms attached). There is a kitchen with utensils/ cutlery, Refrigerator, Coffee-maker, balconies on both the east & west sides, spacious living room where you can practice yoga, books for reading, rooftop for sunbathing etc. We would be happy f...We, myself, wife & 2 kids live in Fort Cochin on Beach Road and are just a stone's throw away (1 km) from the town, local bus stand, ferry, places of interest and historical significance, in an excellent neighborhood.

Arthur and his family were very welcoming and helpful. The Homestay is convenient for all of Fort Cochi attractions and Arthur arranged a Backwater trip and our onward transport at very reasonable rates. Not suitable for anyone that struggles with stairs though.

About the neighbourhood
Fort Cochin is a conglomeration of different cultures, races, religions, cuisines, festivals, languages etc. We have Jews, Hindus, Christians, Moslems, Jains etc with their sub-sects, ethnicity & languages. Our place is just 5 mins away from the beach on one of the most picturesque roads.
Getting around
Bikes, cycles, Tuk-tuks, taxis etc can be arranged Walking is more fun because you will not miss out any of the details and can be seen leisurely.
