Delight Homestay is a really nice, centrally located house run by a really friendly family. The rooms are basic, clean, and big enough. It is a comfortable homestay, made even more enjoyable by the hospitality of David and his family. David also introduced us to Kevin George who took us around Kerala for 4 days. He drives safely, speaks English... More

We arrived at Kochi Airport at about nine at night, having flown in from Mumbai. My girlfriend and I had only been in India two days but Mumbai had really taken it out of us, and coming from London we're no strangers to the madness of the big city. David's driver was waiting for us as promised at the arrivals... More

It is a very cute, central, old portugese house with a beautiful garden. In the evening you can see the kids playing on the big parade ground or just look at the sunset light and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Fort Kochi; The room itself was nice and big, the decoration is nothing special and the breakfast very basic but...

... in a very good location (Old Town Fort Kochi). Quiet, surrounded by a beautiful garden, good breakfast, big room with seating area, the one on the ground floor, facing the main entrance, not so much privacy, but still quiet.... NIce hosts.

in the heart of Fort Kochi, opposite the old parade ground where cricket during the day is replaced by football at dusk, this is a lovely home stay, with elegant cool rooms and a beautiful garden, made really special by the warmth and friendliness of David and Flowery's matchless Keralan hospitality

Stayed here on our last night in Kerala and it was perfect. Mid-range price (£17) for top-end quality. Our room was a beautiful shade of pink with old antique furniture and a great shower in the bathroom. The grounds are really well-kept and provide some calm after a long day. Plus the owners are really friendly (they even directed us... More

Our first 2 days in Kerala were spent at this lovely and comfortable homestay. Warm welcome, good breakfast, nice gardens and excellent location, close to Chinese fishing nets and other local attractions. We enjoyed watching the boys play cricket opposite the house.

Great location in historic Fort Cochin with Chinese fishing nets, churches, Kathakali Dance and great restaurants on the doorstep.

This was our first stop on our trip to Kerala. We had high expectations of the homestay because the reviews were all so positive and the Delight didn't disappoint. David and Flowery are terrific hosts: very friendly, always ready to provide useful hints and tips and they made us feel more like family members than paying guests. The rooms are... More
