This place was everything we wanted from a homestay. Location - convenient short 5 minute walk into town or to coast. Dal Roti is a great restaurant by the way, just around the corner. Rooms - I think there are only 3 rooms in this homestay. The 2 we saw were very spacious and clean. We were very comfortable here.... More

The double family room (with separate entrance and a balcony) is great value! The hosts are very helpful, friendly and easy going and our kids loved them. Don't cheat... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sithara Homestay welcomes you to Kerala, the nature lover’s wonderland, for an amazing experience. Kerala, a sliver of land located at the southernmost tip of India is 560 km long with lofty mountain ranges gracing one side and washed by the blue Arabian Sea on the other. Popularly known as ‘God's own country’, Kerala is viewed and listed by the National Geographic Traveler as one of the 50 places of a lifetime to be visited. Enjoy and explore Kerala in the ambiance of a traditional kerala house with us at Sithara Homestay. Situated on one of the streets of Fort Cochin, Sithara Homestay caters to the taste and needs of the discerning tourists. Present on a street studded with numerous ancient buildings conjuring up an aura of yore. An ideal place to start your discovery of the place and to plan and explore the beauty of Kerala. Fort Cochin is one of the sections of Cochin (The industrial Capital of Kerala), tucked between the Arabian Sea & the backwaters. Situated on a peninsula in the west linked by a complex system of ferries and unimaginatively made bridges, Fort Cochin shares the western location with Mattancherry as its other geographical ally of the old districts, while the eastern part is occupied by modern Ernakulam. ... more   less
