“Tender loving care!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

I was traveling solo and Fort Kochi was my first stop in India. I was a bit nervous upon arrival, but luckily I was in very good hands. Saj took excellent care of me, showing me where everything was around town, giving me safety tips, feeding me delicious home cooked breakfasts, even magically working out a way for me to get an AC room when I couldn't handle the heat.

I was quite impressed with how knowledgeable Saj was about the local area. He was the BEST at arranging day trips, backwater cruises, etc. He'd even coordinate with his other guests that were interested in the same location, to help you get the price per person as low as possible. While in Kochi, I went to the elephant training camp, Munnar, and a backwater cruise...all with the help of Saj. I even compared prices with some of the local tour groups...Saj was very reasonable and made everything super easy.

This is a GREAT place to stay if you want to land, relax, take things day by day....and feel amazingly cared for!!

Room Tip: There are both AC and non AC rooms. The non AC rooms are, of course, cheaper...but are far less nic...

My stay at Sajhome was just lovely! I really enjoyed the time we spent in Fort Cochin. Mr Saj is very knowledgeable and he is very helpful in making sure you'll get the most out of your trip to Fort Cochin. The place is very clean and comfortable. Great location too! But above all this, the service you get there is certainly one of the main reason why you should stay at Sajhome. Thank you for everything!

I stayed with Saj towards the end of my six week trip around India and i'm so glad I did. I arrived in the middle of night but he'd arranged a lovely driver to come and pick me up and was awake to great me with a big smile at his home. My room was very clean and comfortable. Location is great, its a good place to start your exploring, espcially with your tummy full of Saj's wifes delicious breakfast. The puttu and black chick pea curry was honestly the most delicious breakfast I had during my whole trip. Saj and his family put so much love and time into your stay, they really couldn't have done anymore to help me during my stay. If you want to feel safe and at home this is the place for you.

We absolutety enjoyed staying here for some days in November.
Our very nicely furnished and really clean rooms had a little balcony. At night it was relatively quiet without a busy street .
The landlord and his son are friendly and helpful and gave us a heartily welcome. We also were delighted about the various forms of Kerala breakfast prepared by the landlady and served at a porch on then first floor.

My friend and I stayed for a week at Saj home in the first week of December. Saj and his family extended every possible assistance to ensure that we had a terrific stay in Cochin. Delicious breakfasts to set you you up for the day ahead, good advice on sights to see (in and out of Cochin) and places to shop, more advice on great lunch and dinner spots, a clean and comfortable room to head back to after all that sightseeing, shopping and eating! Thanks for a lovely stay in amazing Cochin!

We were unable to stay with saj as he was fully booked. Even so, he arranged another option (Chack Inn) and was still happy to be available for any advice or questions we might have had. Very generous and warm hospitality.

I travelled with friends who stayed at Sajhome before and keep coming back every year. They couldn´t recommend it enough. And it didn´t disappoint. Saj and his team are very friendly and helpful. Saj makes you feel like you are the most important guest and does his utmost to make sure you have a great stay. We caught an early flight from Chennai to Cochin and he called us on the the way from to airport to check what we wanted for breakfast when we arrive and we were able to check in to our rooms straight away, which was a bonus as it meant we could fully enjoy the day in Cochin.

The rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished and beds comfortable. The breakfast is a treat (especially the pineapple juice made to secret recipe!) and it is served on lovely balcony.

Saj always took great care of us and he helped to arrange a house boat - and even called us after the trip to make sure everything was ok with the houseboat and we enjoyed it.

I would highly recommend Sajhome and if I am in Cochin again, this is where I will be.
