We had a lovely stay, harry and his family were very welcoming. They gave us a large, clean, comfortable room with a clean en suit. Ac and non ac is available, we opted for non ac. The breakfasts on the reviews sound lovely, but unfortunately we didn't receive a fancy one. Overall, we had a pleasant stay in beautiful surroundings.... More

Ill admit this the sitara home stay is definitely nothing compared to the Ritz but it has something very special. Evey morning when you wake up you smell that lovely fresh air especially when it rains in the early mornings. Then you get that traditional south Indian breakfast. I simply loved and honestly I never thought that I could expect... More

I stayed at Sithara Homestay in Dec 2013 for 4 days. I received a warm and friendly welcome from Harry and his son. The room I stayed in was clean, comfortable and tidy. The location of the homestay in Fort Cochin was in close proximity to pretty much to most if not all attractions and it is within walking distance.... More

We felt very welcome in this beautiful old villa with its nice garden full of exotic birds, ideally situated inmidst of Cochin Fort. Harry and his wife, Mercie, are very friendly, full of humor and helpful. They both speak English very well. The rooms on the first floor are nice, clean and spacious. Reasonable price. A rich breakfast is served... More

This is a very nice home stay with a very attentive family for hosts. The setting is great and rooms pleasant. The home cooking is fantastic - the seafood was better than I have had in restaurants. The service provided is very attentive and you feel like a member of the family.
