We stayed 4 nights at Beena Homestay. It was an excellent experience. Beena and Sudish are kind and thoughtful hosts; on the day we arrived after a long train journey they gave us lunch which was unexpected and very welcome. We had one of the new upstairs rooms with AC and free wifi. Both bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean... More

A lovely homestay with helpful hosts. We stayed in a room upstairs, very clean - just make sure you take the AC option or it may be very hot. Food was the best we have had so far in Kerala and our hosts assisted with arranging a driver for the next leg of the journey.

Noticing a "poor" review in the list made me want to re-review Beena's. I have now stayed with Beena four times (first time in 2011). Whenever I go to India now, it is one of the two or three places where I always stay. I go so far as to plan my trip around these places (if you are interested,... More

Having stayed here in 2013 and 2014, we were so happy to return for 3 nights this March. Beena and Sudi are like old friends and again made us so very welcome. It seems that many of the guests are 'returners'.The rooms are immaculate as always and the home-cooked suppers a real treat. Beena's is so well placed for exploring... More

We stayed with Beena & Sudi in 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it and this year we were able to return to Kerala and couldn't wait to stay there again. We were given a wonderfully warm welcome on arrival, it was like being greeted by two old friends....this is the welcome they give everyone anyway and it is wonderful. In our... More

We stayed at Beena's for 2 nights and we had an amazing time. They were incredibly nice, welcoming us way earlier than the normal check-in time with a great breakfast, arranging an airport pick-up, arranging a doctor's appointment and transport, we were very well taken care of. We stayed upstairs in a big, super clean and comfortable room, with a... More

Beena, Sudhee and their lovely family were welcoming, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. It was an absolute delight to stay here for 3 nights, we stayed downstairs where there are four rooms leading into a shared seating area with small library and outside terrace. Our double room was clean and basic with ensuite bathroom (hot and cold water) and... More

From the moment I arrived at Beena and Sudhee's home, I knew this experience was special. My room was immaculate, as was every inch of their home. And the food!!! Sudhee weaves magic in the kitchen, and he has inspired me to give Indian cooking another try (I took notes!) the hospitality didn't stop there though. It seemed they were... More

Looking back staying at Beena's has been a highlight of both my trips to Kochi. There is not much not to love. Beena organised pick up late at night at the airport then greeted us early in the morning when we arrived to Fort Kochi. Her husband Sudhi cooks amazing vegetarian food for breakfast and dinner and both of them... More

Beena and her husband were very welcoming and we really enjoyed staying with them. Their place is clean and homely and the food prepared by them was delicious. The location is good, not right in the centre but in a quiet residential area where you can watch everyday life going on from your balcony. We would definitely go back to... More
