“one of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Beena and Sudi are some of the worlds "Hosts with the Most" It is not all about the smartest place to stay because what they offer is genuine Warmth and Hospitality in their home.
We stayed 4 days, our room was quite small and our ensuite bathroom adequate. The rooms were clean with linen changed every day (this only happened elsewhere in one hotel) The food was excellent both at breakfast and dinner and included in the price, possibly the best food we had in South India. The people we met were interesting fun to be with and all age groups.
Beena and Sudi I hope we can return one day. Thank you for making your home one of the best places to stay

You won't be disappointed staying here! My husband and I stayed at Beena's for 4 nights at the end of January. Beena and Sudi are the loveliest couple. The place is spotless and the food is excellent! You will never feel hungry as they make sure you are well fed. We arrived later in the evening and they still had dinner for us...so thoughtful. They will help you with all your arrangements. If you can get a room don't hesitate to book. We love you Beena and Sudi! Thank you for everything. We hope that we can meet again one day!

I stayed at Beenas at the beginning of February 2013. They arranged a pick up from the airport as I arrived very early and Beena greeted me when I arrived and showed me to my room. The homestay was perfect with big, clean simple rooms. I stayed in room one downstairs which was lovely with two windows. Breakfast and diner were great with delicious food and a great opportunity to meet others and chat about your travel and pick up tips. It's about a ten minute easy walk to the main areas and beena and her husband are always around for help and advice. They helped me to book accommodation and transport to my next destination. For the price it is fantastic value and I would definitely stay here again especially as a solo female traveller. Book it!!

Super clean home-stay. I had the upstairs room with A/C and terrace, and I paid 2500 rps / night, and it was very simple but nice. Beena and her husband are very nice friendly people. In the room rate, breakfast and dinner are included...If you like Indian food, then is one of the best meals you can get.
The only inconvenient is the distance to the city center (about 15 - 20 minutes), although a tuktuk costs no more than 30 - 40 rps.
In downtown you can find cheaper home-stays, but I doubt as much clean as Beena home-stay.

We were only passing through Kochi, so stayed for one night, but have good memories of being well looked after by Beena. She is a warm, friendly lady who was very kind and helpful. We also had a delicious breakfast the morning we had to leave.

There is a bookshelf with travel guides and other information if you want to browse. Very well-kept home that feels very welcoming the moment you enter. Also has computer with internet available.

Our room had everything we needed and was very clean and maintained. The aircon was crispy cool - much appreciated to escape the humidity!

Would not hesitate to recommend.

like all the previous posts here: the couple is just great. so friendly people.. Rooms are very good, facilites upstairs are newer than on the ground floor. we paied like 1500rps incl dinner and breakfast. we did a backwaters day trip for around 650rps per person, with pick up and lunch. the bus comes to your place and picks you up, the family can book it for you.

This place is quite amazing. Wonderful hosts who will help you arrange a tour or a tailor. They are very kind and generous people. My room was basic but spotless. all really required. The best part of a stay at Beena's is the meals. Not only are they delicious and plentiful but you get to share them and conversation with amazing people from everywhere. I certainly advise you to book here and be confident about drivers and tailors etc that your hosts might arrange.
