Beena and her husband made us very welcome. Our room was excellent, very clean and of a good standard. The breakfast and dinner were authentic Keralan home cooking, very tasty and there was always more than enough to eat. Beena and her family went the extra mile to make our stay easy and enjoyable. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room with a balcony which was very nice.

Beena Homestay deserves it's top rating. It is welcoming, comfortable and very clean. Our room was downstair. It was spartan but immaculate and very quiet. Beena's husband and daughters are excellent cooks, some of the best vegetarian food we had on our trip. The location is a short tuktuk ride from the heart of Cochin. We would definitely stay here again. Do make sure you have Beena's phone number on arrival, because the drivers have problem finding the place.

This was the perfect place to stay on arrival in Kerala. Very comfortable, AMAZING food and extremely friendly and welcoming owners. Also a great place to meet people as everyone eats meals together. Only downside is it is a little further away from the main 'hub' of Fort Cochin, and it isn't that nice a walk at night, but it's a small price to pay for an otherwise great place.

This homestay was very wonderful-particularly the wonderful, plentiful food (both dinner and breakfast are included!) and the friendliness of the hosts:) Quiet, clean comfortable accommodation with fan and a/c. Rooms on upper levels should be brighter than rooms on ground floor which I stayed in. Beena is very beautiful and should be a model:)

When you go there make sure you have their phone numbers as the taxi and rickshaw drivers from airport do not know the address of this home as it's a bit out of the way off of a side-road. So get your driver to call Beena or her husband and they can guide the driver to the homestay.

Room Tip: ask for a room on one of the top floors.

Thank you Beena and Sudee for making our stay a truly wonderful experience!
This was our first visit to India and to a Homestay- this is a perfect way to get to know people in their local community and to meet fellow travellers from around the world.
Our room was clean, comfortable and had a small balcony. There was always hot water and the airconditioning was great. Beena and Sudee will spoil you with their hospitality and wonderful food. Thankyou!

We had a great week at Beena Homestay. Beena and Sudhi are very generous people. One review mentions that they spoil their guests a little too much and I think that’s right! Breakfast and dinner were amazing, and one evening we were shown how to prepare a few of the curries. We flew into Kochi and our stay was a beautifully gentle introduction to India. Thankyou very much for your hospitality! Sorry for taking the key, we just mailed it back to you. Petra & Alex

Room Tip: There is AC in one room, but this is not necessary at this time of year.

i only stayed at beena's for one night and it was not enough! cool, comfortable, clean, and the location is perfect; walking distance to all the surrounding sites. however, the family style meals were the best part. it was great to chat with fellow travelers and beena and her family, all while eating delicious southern indian specialties!

thank you, beena!
