Together with my family and some friends we stayed at Saj Homestay in Kochi December 2008 and Mr. Saj arranged for a subsequent houseboat trip on the Kerala backwaters. Our stay in Kochi was very, very pleasant and we really enjoyed the town and the Kerala lifestyle. We particularly enjoyed staying at Saj Homestay where the nice big rooms, the friendly atmosphere and the healthy breakfast created the perfect base for our tours around the town of Kochi. It is within walking distance of all major sites in the old centre and Mr. Saj was very helpfull in advicing on sites and arranging for tickets to a very impressive dance performance at the Greenix cultural centre. I am sure we will come back to Kochi and Saj Homestay and we can highly recommend others to do the same.
