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 outward facing windows, one exception being the window that looked out under a heavy canopy and had no view whatsoever. There was one 500ml bottle of water as our “welcome pack” which was not replenished (or offered to be) during our two day stay. The shower and toilet were both very basic and the one bar of soap – frugal! The two single beds were hard and covered only with a coarse fabric “sarong” not even a proper sheet. We were warned by the host to keep the door closed at night to stop the mosquitos getting into the room but there was no anti-mosquito device in the room! In the other eleven places we stayed – there was! Breakfast was served in the main living part of the house and was perfectly adequate. The host was affable and pleasant and was very helpful when our flight was changed.
On arrival at the Delight Homestay, and following our previous experiences , we were full of hopeful anticipation. The outside of the building and its location were perfect – our room was not. We were both disappointed with this homestay.

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 not stay anywhere else if ever we go back to Fort Kochi. Many thanks for such a pleasurable stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem fine.

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 months and we wold definitely consider coming back in two years just for that.

The parade ground makes good local watching and the whole experience was all we wanted. David organised a trip on a rice boat which was very memorable. Not the flashiest of experiences but with a lovely crew and charming owner - and actually a really good price, all in all a place we would recommend and return to. One thing of note is that David organised a taxi to take us to Aplleppy and the driver, Kevin, was fantastic. Something by no means to be taken for granted.

Stayed: January 2017

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 in Kochi.

Room Tip: If you intend spending some time relaxing each day, the balcony room is a treat
