“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This is the very first review that I've written on TripAdvisor and I'm happy to be writing it for Sajhome. All the good reviews that you read about this homestay is true. Saj and Sia are both very accommodating and hospitable in every way. The service here is spot on! Things that they didn't need to do, they did for us and undoubtedly, for other guests too. My husband and I experienced very bad food poisoning in a restaurant in town and were meant to leave the next morning to Alleypey but couldn't as we were too sick. Saj accommodated our request to stay another 2 nights & also took care of us with his own natural remedies (it worked!). We had everything served to our bedroom for 2 days - all prepared by his wife at home. We were so appreciative as we didn't see ourselves getting this treatment had we stayed in a hotel. Thank you Saj, Sia and family! If we come back to Kerala, we'll no doubt be staying at Sajhome.

Have just returned from a stay at Sajhome after a gap of 4 years. It was excellent then and was not diappointed this time. The standard of cleanliness here is second to none and the staff cannot do enough to help you (this includes bringing me copious amounts of tea to my room when ever asked for!) Saj is as helpful as ever and it was a pleasure to make a return visit. I'll be back!

We chose Sajhome due to the fantastic reviews here on trip advisor and we were not at all disappointed!!! we get down to errnakulam station, saj arranged a cab to pick from railway station to his home stay, We arrived 15 min early to check in time he provided us a temporary room to fresh ourselves after 15 min we checkin into our room, which is very clean and spacious (In fact temporary room is also very good). Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the pineapple juice is as good as everybody keeps going on about. Saj is a very affectionate host and will tell you the best places to eat and hangout. Saj provided us with a map and arranged an autorickshaw for roaming in fort cochin, the driver was well groomed and spoke adequate english, Also Saj arranged cab(drivers are excellent) for all my trips around kerala.One can book a cab/taxi through the owner without any hesitation or fear. Definately, I will recommend people who are going cochin to stay in saj home. We roamed different places in kerala, in all those places we loved Saj's homestay.
Thanks for saj for making our journey very comfortable.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent...................

We chose Sajhome due to the fantastic reviews here on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! Totally friendly owners, impeccable rooms and excellent Kerala bf. A few footsteps away from the beautiful sites of old Cochin with its historical churches, houses and the shopping and dining places. Although on a main road the good sleep is guaranteed as there is almost no traffic in the night. Don't miss it when visiting Kochi!

Very comfortable room, Saj was very welcoming and the breakfast was great. Also gave us a recommendation for our next homestay in Kumily, which was brilliant. Told us all we needed to know to get around Kochi and see what we wanted to see, as well as the best places to eat (go to Oceanos, twice if you can!)
