I am Mr Santosh Tom, the owner of the homestay. We are running this homestay for past 16 years. We reside on the ground floor and run the Vasco Cafe and Vasco Tourist Information and Travels as well. We have tried our level best to maintain the building as it was, without too many modifications. There are many new hotels and homestay named after Vasco but our building is the one that is accepted by historians. You can easily identify this building – it stands at the corner where Rose Street meet Bastion street, facing St Francis Church. The Post Office is opposite the building. The old stone staircase is still used as it was during the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British rule of Cochin. This heritage value drove me to start a home stay, which in turn is a good enough reason to protect this monument.
