I and my wife first met Mr Johnson on a visit to Kochin 10 years ago when he showed us around in his rickshaw. If you prefer to walk to the centre it only takes 15 mins. His 2 rooms are very clean and airy and one gets a real feeling of local Indian life. When you are invited for...

Staying at Johnson's Homestay was such a treat for us. After a long journey we were keen to head straight for somewhere recommended in the guide book and to find somewhere to stay the next day. However, a friend of Johnson's took us to meet them and to see the room, the room was clean spacious and the home had...

I stayed here a few days whilst in Fort Cochin, and was instantly made to feel welcome and at home. The family are lovely and Johnson is extremely helpful. Not only did he help with travel within Fort Cochin, but he also helped and gave advice for my subsequent travels through Kerala. His wife is also a great cook, and...

We visited Fort Kochi in February 2012 and had wanted to stay at Johnson's Homestay because we already knew him as an excellent rickshaw driver from an earlier visit. However, his homestay was fully booked. So we only visited, saw the place, talked with him and his lovely family - and were invited for dinner together with the B&B-guests in...

This really is a lovely homestay! The people are incredibly sweet; Johnson will help you with whatever he can and Elisabeth can cook the best meals. They have two nice & clean rooms with all the Western facilities, it's situated in a nice quiet area no more than 10 minutes walk from the fishingnets. We couldn't wish for more!

I went there with 3 friends of mine, there are 2 big rooms with fan that the family cleaned as soon as we arrived. You don't have to believe taxi drivers that say it's far from the centre of fort cochin: it's 5 minutes walking distance and the position is much more appreciable than hotels in the touristic shop area....
