Orion Stays - Enchanting homestay close to Fort Cochin

This homestay is an enchanting homestay, located in the heart of Fort Cochin. The homes peaceful character is accentuated by its zen-inspired garden and pristine, white exteriors. This homestay with its near-perfect location is the pride of Mr. and Mrs. Verghese, a successful, young couple and reputed members of Fort Cochin.

Mr. Verghese has a flourishing business while his wife, Shobhna is a famous advocate and hails from a respected political family. But the couple is extremely down to Earth and a great example of the new age Indian couple; they have a modern lifestyle but also hold their traditions in high esteem. Their home is a perfect reflection of this union of cultures. The newly constructed homestay has traditional Keralite architecture with little dashes of modern interiors, like a drum set that sits proudly in the living room. The three-year old homestay has four, impeccably maintained bedrooms all with private balconies overseeing the city. It also has a lush green lawn and three other communal areas for the guests to enjoy.

This homestay boasts of a prime location which is widely appreciated by its guests. The home is situated on the main street and easily accessible by public transport. But at the same time its far removed from the noise and traffic associated with urban life. The homestay is merely five minutes from the beach, the ferryboats and the famous Chinese fishing nets. ItÂ’s also close to the beautiful Santa Cruz Basilica. But the property's most valued asset is the hands-on service provided by the Verghese,which is customized to suit a variety of interests and budgets. Verghese also has an efficient staff of three which helps look after the needs of the guests. And the couple places a lot of importance on providing memorable holiday.
