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

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of December. We stayed in the upstairs front room with the corner balcony which was a lovely spacious room with great views over the parade ground outside. Delight Homestay is very well run by David and Flowery and they were always on hand to offer help or advice.... More

This property is more like a combination boutique hotel and home stay and is in an ideal location for exploring Fort Kochi. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated, clean and comfortable. David and Flowery were very helpful with directions, getting tickets to cultural shows, excursions, etc. and they are backed up by an attentive staff. The only thing that could be... More

Charming home stay with owners who truly go out of their way for you! David and Flowery were attentive and extremely helpful, and our room was large, clean and had a fantastic balcony from which we could view the pretty garden, parade ground beyond, the street, and the Christmas decorations as they were erected. The location of Delight is absolutely... More
