“Friendly yet professional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We ended up staying here longer than we intended because it was so nice to stop in a spotless, safe, friendly house. Perfect place to collect yourself after dusty backpacking travel. The couple that run it were really helpful with advice on things to do and were able to get us tickets to things we wanted to see. While this is a home stay it feels like a mini hotel as the facilities are all new and the rooms felt very private.
There is a roof terrace where you can relax (it had just been freshly painted when we got there) and a rack for drying washing which was really helpful.
Located in a nice area, a short walk from all the main attractions.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a clean, no nonsense, friendly, hassle free stay (with wifi!)

I found ChristVille homestay by accident, and what a happy accident it was! From the moment I walked in I felt part of the family, P and J go out of their way to make you feel comfortable; between J taking me round all morning searching for a new suitcase and P letting me cook up a storm in her kitchen with my market veggies I soon felt so at home that my planed 2 night stay turned into over a week.. I then realised I couldn't leave India without another trip to ChristVille and returned a month later!
So this review is as much as a heartfelt thank you for the memories to Preethy and Joy as it is a recommendation to all those looking for accomodation in Fort Kochi to save time and look no further (as it is during my stay I saw many people look around and leave to carry on looking.. all of them returned within an hour!)
I could go on about every good point.. Immaculate clean newly built rooms, great location quiet but easy to walk everywhere etc etc, but at the end of the day we all go travelling searching for experiences and memories.. And happy ones it will be after a stay at ChristVille Homestay...

Right in the heart of Fort Cochin, but still nice and quiet. The family who run the homestay are so lovely and friendly, very accommodating.

The room was comfortable and clean, and there were mosquito nets over the windows.

Would happily stay again!

Besides having one of the most convenient geographical locations in Fort Kochi, Christ Ville is run by the super warm-hearted and welcoming people and attracts tourists by its calmness, reasonable price relative to quality and charm :) The family spirit intertwined with the high comfort make you want to visit Christ Ville again and again! Best of luck, Joy and Preety! And thank you for all!

I stayed at Christville homestay for a total of 5 nights..It is located in the wonderful area of Fort Kochi & is near the beautiful Santa Cruz Basilica (def worth visiting!)..The room I was given was clean, comfortable & most importantly had mosquito netting all over the windows (even the bathroom one)..I found the hosts, Joy & Preethy to be extremely helpful & kind.They would answer all my queries with patience & were genuinely concerned about my well-being..
Joy & Preethy can arrange tours for their customers which is extremely convenient if you are short on time & want to pack in as much you can..As I did not have a laptop or smartphone with me (there is free wifi here), they allowed me to use their computer to surf the net which saved me a lot of time & money..Last but not the least, this place is extremely affordable & is a better option than any hotel..
