I am sure I'm not the only one who has described the Delight Homestay in Kochi as "Delightful", but that indeed it is. The owner, David, and his wife are superbly hospitable and very helpful to the independent traveller like myself. The house itself is a marvel in its beauty both within and without, with the best manicured lawn I've... More

Our room was spacious and clean with a powerful shower. Very helpful at arranging day trips even late the night before! Would definetly recommend... More

I was 3 nights late in arriving due to a visa problem. I contacted David from Sydney, where I had been offloaded, and he was so polite and said just let him know when I would be arriving and rebook. No penalty ! What a delight to arrive. The gardens are so pretty, the house grand and our room very... More

Lovely place to stay in a good location in Fort Kochi. Town is easily accessible while still maintaining a quiet location to get a good nights sleep. Gardens are immaculate, rooms quirky and homely, would definitely stay again. David and his wife were very hospitable and cooked us Kerala breakfast at our request for the time we stayed. I would...

David and his kind wife are hospitable and friendly hosts. The heritage house is well maintained and each room is spacious and includes an ac. The location overlooks the parade ground and is a short walk from many of fort kochi tourist attractions. If you're looking for a comfortable stay without the commercial hotel feel then this is a good... More

This is a lovely home stay: huge rooms in a wonderful old house. It's very clean, very close to everything and the management are friendly and helpful. We (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed in one room and loved Fort Cochin.

We arrived at Delight Homestay after a sleepless plane journey from Scotland and the airline having lost our bags. David had arranged a pickup from Kochi airport which was a godsend and we had also en route stopped at several cash points and been unable to obtain money from anywhere. Needless to say we arrived exhausted, hot and frazzled. David... More
