We just love this very beautiful homestay, and Seahut's owners, Anthony and Hema, and staff were just delightful. Ideally situated in Fort Kochi (if you are a tourist, always stay in Fort Kochi, not in commercial area), Seahut is down a little alley, away from main road, and right on beach. You have to walk along the beach a short distance to swim, as the sea wall is a bit difficult to climb down. However, it is nice to sit on it (piles of bolders) and watch the sun go down, then a few yards through private gate into Seahut's delightful raked sand garden. Lovely rooms, many with their own private wooden balconies. There is also a dining area, open to the garden, if you want to mix with other travellers. There were lots of families and single women, and it felt a very safe haven. Fans, air-conditioning, mosquito nets and they light incense burners for you if you are in in the evening. Serve cold beer if you ask, and will store wine in their fridge if required. The owner, Hema, is a fabulous cook and we ate superbly on several evenings, (about 4-6 a head) and once had grilled fish for lunch. Only a 50p tuktuk/auto ride from main sites on Fort Kochi. They also offer a laundry service. If ever we go to Cochin/Kochi again, would definitely stay here. Loved it.
