“Great home stay on a budget”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Joy and Jaicy are great hosts. They made us feel welcome and went out of their way to show us where the local eateries were. We had a great Kerala breakfast and a wonderfully peaceful 2 nights with them. Definitely great value for money as our budgets were not the highest.

we stayed here for a couple of days, spent a couple of weeks on cherrai beach, then came back for another 3 days before leaving kerela. the first room we stayed in (on the first floor) was clean and homely, and attached to a little lounge area, dining area and kitchen. the kerelan breakfasts were outstanding and the service was friendly and hospitable. after our trip to cherrai we were given an amazing large and spotless room on the ground floor, again the breakfasts were delicious, and we had a little more chance to chat with jaicy and joy.
loved this place and will definately return next time i'm in kerela.

Joy and Jaicy are lovely people with a lovely family. Their rooms are very clean, the beds comfortable, and the breakfasts delicious - we stayed there for five nights over the December break and really have no complaints at all. The other great thing about their place is the location - a five minute walk from the main area of Fort Cochin, which means that unlike many other guesthouses this one is actually quite at night! Highly recommended.

Had a splendid two night stay at the Lazar Residency Homestay. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. Also, the location was great! Joy helped us arrange a tuk-tuk for the day however we could have easily covered the must sees in Fort Kochi by foot. What was greatest about this homestay experience was spending time with Joy, Jaicey, Anju, and David. They were more than eager to help us with anything we needed! Joy booked our backwaters trip for us and also helped us get tickets to the Kathakali performance. Can't forget to mention the wonderful breakfasts we were served in the morning! Absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend!

Since I came to Kochi to give birth to my 2nd child, I selected this home-stay so with my husband and my elder son, we could feel like at home. We stayed for over a month and it was like we have rented 1BHK fully furnished. The kitchen is well equipped, and grocery shops are just an 100 meters away. The house is located in a quiet lane, which is also very safe. My son had a very good time playing with the kids around. Really appreciated the kindness of the owners. We will definitely come back and I strongly recommend this place.

This excellent family run guest house / home stay is tucked away down a quiet residental lane (tricky to find for the 1st time). The family are very friendly and helpful. A new room is being constructed, making a total of 4. There is also a kitchen and a dinning area for guest to use. As we had a late flight, they kindly let us have a late check out at no extra charge.

Very comfortable rooms, very nice bathroom. Really nice place to stay.

What made it so amazing though was the support and help from the owners. Joy and Jaicy really helped me out, and I felt very welcomed into their home. It was wonderful to get to know them and their family and I will definitely come back to stay!
