“Great stay at Maison Casero”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I stayed here for 3 nights recently. It was my first trip travelling alone and I'm so glad this was the first place I stayed. Priya is such a lovely lady, and a really, really good host. From the moment I arrived she made me feel welcome and comfortable. My room was clean, and a good size with all the facilities I expected. The Homestay is in a great location for exploring Fort Kochi.
I had the Keralan and Continental breakfasts and thought both were really tasty, and it was nice to eat outside on the roof terrace.

Jaison and Priya also organised a taxi from the airport for me and I bought a Kathakali ticket from the Homestay. On the last day Jaison even gave me a lift to the ferry terminal on the back of his motorbike!

I would really recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in the area

Maison Casero is a really nice place to stay at cause you will find a place with a friendly family in a cosy house. So if you want you can get in touch with indian family life. They are really kind hosts, took care of us very well and also helped to organize trips and so on. Our room was very clean and comfortable with fan and aircondition (your choice), big bathroom and a lot of windows so that we had sunny daylight all the time. There was also a terrace where you can sit and relax or take your breakfast made by priya. Restaurants, shops, harbour, ferry and attractions are only a few minutes walk. We felt very welcome!

big thank you to priya, jaison and the little ladies :)

We arrived in the Morning and we welcomed with warm homeowners face and they already waiting for us
After introducing we entered into the House, so clean and simple, we take off our shoes to keep the clean house.
There are three rooms on the top floor and we had 2 choices
After selecting and placing backpacks went to the balcony and a delicious breakfast was waiting for us,
Local breakfast, coffee and a glass of fresh pineapple juice
After breakfast we talk with homeowner (Priya) and overview map of the island and possible plans to do.
Homeowners will be very helpful to book tickets for Katakaly, Beckwater and a tour of the munnar city and visiting the Elephants and tea plantation.
There is a suitable place to rest and sleep, every morning when you wake up surely good breakfast ready on the table
I strongly recommend choosing maison casero , because you cannot able to find better than this

It was our first trip to India and because of satying in Maison Casero homestay it was a fantastic trip .we stayed 7 days here but definatly will come back soon.
Maison casero homestay is a place you can feel you are in your own home , very clean and comfortable ,with free WIFI . Priya and Jaison both are fantastic hosts, they are very helpful and arrange every thing for you in best way , any time you need help or suggestion Priya is there to talk with you and arrange things for you , she arrange us the Katakali show ticket, backwater trip in Allepy and also a very good tour to Munnar and Elephant training camp , the home stay is near to almost all the sights, near to spice market and also ferry to other islands such as Ernakulam , Vypin, wilington island, she made us very delicius breckfast every day ( i suggest you try the keralan breack fasts, which are really delicius ) and fresh jiuce every morning , no matter you wake us too early or too late, she is there to prepare you the breckfast and give you suggestions about what to do for rest of the days, she suggest where to go, where to eat, where to buy souvenior and also talk with you about the history of the islands and etc

we stayed here in Feb 2012 whilst touring Kerala. They were really kind to us and very hospitable. They helped us to book a boat trip and gave us a cookery lesson which involved shopping at the local market and riding on motorbikes/pedal bikes in the crazy traffic.
Highly recomend, we landed here with little experience of India and left feeling like home.

We stayed at Maison Casero for one night only, but would´ve loved to stay for a while longer. The room was big, clean and comfortable, with an impeccable private bathroom and a lovely terrace. The location is perfect if you want to walk around Fort Kochin, in a really nice neighborhood, and Priya, the owner, makes the stay even better. She booked us tickets for kathakali (highly recommended), gave as a great breakfast (included) and, most importantly, made us feel at home. We really enjoyed chatting with her and having some answers to our many questions about India.

This Homestay is.clean and comfortable. Priya and Jaison are very friendly and welcome you into their home. The rooms are quite basic, a little darkish due to the dark wood furniture but clean and comfortable with aircon and bathroom with shower. It's a quiet area apart from the odd dog barking. I would recommend this homestay to anyone visiting Fort Cochin. We stayed for three nights at the start of our holiday. Priya and Jaison arranged our pick up from the airport at a competitive rate and arranged taxi on to our next Homestay in Alleppey.
