“Very nice homestay!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed with Joy and Preethy for two nights in January and had a good time there. The room was very new and clean, some rooms have a balcony. All the family members were very friendly and helpful. We used the laundry service which was pretty fast and good, but we would recommend to charge the laundry per kilo rather than per piece. We had a good time there and would recommend it.

We stayed at ChristVille with my girlfriend for 1 week in January 2013 and were very satisfied. The rooms were clean and nice, the location is very good (very close is a superb restaurant Dal Rothi-worth every penny), and the owners (Joy with wife and 2 lovely daughters) very helpful, and caring.
We were really lucky to have wandered into this peaceful homestay and enjoyed their services and their company very much. Thank you Joy and Preethy :)

We arrived at Christville Homestay after a long and draining journey from Bangalore and it was a relief to land in a quiet, friendly and very clean guesthouse. Joy and Preethy are extremely friendly and invite you into their home as if it was your own, so much so that we spent longer than expected there, 5 nights in total. They are always keen to help you, even late at night, and will go out of their way to make sure you make the most of your time in Kochi, ie arranging scooter hire, backwaters trip, etc. The availability of bottled mineral water (chilled or room temperature) at any time of day was also life saving! Our room came at a reasonable price and was a nice size with small en-suite bathroom, very clean and peaceful. Although we missed out on a balcony room, we were able to enjoy the sun (and breakast) on the roof terrace. The rooms have wi-fi but if you do not have your own laptop, the family computer downstairs is always free to be used. It is well located in Fort Kochi with plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops only a stone's throw away - be sure to visit our personal favourites Dal Roti and Kashi Art Cafe.

Room Tip: Make sure you grab a room with a balcony. If you miss out on one, don't worry, there's also...

If you're looking for a room in Kochi, you should try this one and feel at home from the verz first minute. The family gives you a warm welcome and helps you with any needs or questions a traveller might have. The rates are very reasonable for the quality you experience. The rooms (incl. the bathroom) are clean. There is no phone or tv - but who needs one on holidays. But there is a wifi free of charge for you. From the rooftop terrace you have a good view around. And the continental breakfast helps you getting ready for the day.

Room Tip: You can choose between rooms with or without ac and with or without a small balcony. We've chose...

I stayed here along with my 3 other friends who wanted a quiet & clean & affordable space after a long and tiring India wide trip. Preethy and Joy are such welcoming people that they make you feel quickly part of their little family, that being said they really ensure and respect privacy.

We stayed for 4-5 nights, I shared a non-balcony room with my friend and other the couple had a room with a balcony. The rooms are small but not cramped and quiet practically furnished with a desk/vanity mirror attached to covered cabinets; the attached typical Indian style bathroom (toilet/shower all in space) was very clean. The property being new has its advantages, however from what I saw the hosts ensures the rooms and common areas are thoroughly cleaned and kept tidy.

The location of the building is in a residential area, therefore its not all together quiet, also Cochin known for its mosquito population did not help us a lot, since the trip took a toll and two of us fell sick. The hosts were very helpful in arranging us special meals and ensured all our transportation arrangements since one of us had to rush to a hospital. I guess if we would have been felling well, ChristVille would have been a nicer enjoyable stay.

I thoroughly recommend this home stay.
