A House by the side of the road

The owner Mr. Walton says that he was inspired by the lines of a poem by Sam Walter Foss “Let me live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man.” Friend he is. From the first call enquiring about availability to the last day of checking out, enjoyed every bit of it. At the time of check in Mr. Walton hands over a map and some pages with information in and around Fort Kochi which is of great help.
The striking aroma of lemon oil greets when you open the door of the room. That’s to keep the mosquitoes at bay we were told. They have 9 rooms, all with AC and attached bath. Most of the rooms open to a small well kept garden. It’s the chirping of birds that wake you up in the morning. Mr. Walton’s office is full of books which one can borrow or buy.

Wonderful location, the famous Chinese fishing nets, the cafes, the shops all just around the corner from this place.

One glitch ::The kitchen was not functional as it was “off season” and we missed the home cooked breakfast in a homestay!
The room we stayed.
