Homestay Noah's Ark
is a cheerful homestay situated at Fort Cochin, Kerala
Jerry and Diana Kocherry are one of the warmest couples
and guest who stays here feel like they've been living with
favourite aunt and uncle. Jerry
is retired captain from the merchant navy, and Diana used to
be a teacher. Together they’ve sailed to all parts of the
world and assimilated various traits of the world’s
cultures. The two love to entertain, meet new people and
exchange stories. And recently they put their common interests
to commercial use by starting Noah’s Ark.

post modern façade. But
inside it’s drenched in sunlight with skylight and the big windows. The homestay’s three deluxe
rooms are spacious and one even has a huge balcony.
They’re complete with AC, TV and bathrooms. The other 3 standard rooms are on a
separate floor. The home’s charming roof garden is available
for sunbathing, and the lawn is a good place to enjoy
snacks made by Diana whose cooking is simply delightful.
