“Croeso twymgalon”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We received a warm and friendly welcome and excellent service was provided. The additional bedrooms on the top floor which were nearing completion during our stay are of a high standard, and we can recommend the establishment unreservedly.

Hans, Catherine and Mantu from Melbourne Australia
Best hotel standards at Homestay prices! You'll never forget the famous Kerala breakfasts! The family atmosphere and help we received about trips and sights was unbeatable. Dev the owner responds immediately to every email.
Centrally located within Fort Kochi, there is easy access to Portuguese, Dutch and English colonial sights, bazaars, restaurants. Fort Kochi is a relaxed, vibrant and exciting place with exemplary interweaving of Islam, Christianity, HInduism, Judaism, Jainism to name just a few!

The Homested was the first place we stayed (2 nights) in India on the start of a short 17 day back packing holiday, and it was a great all round experience. The room was comfortable and spacious. Mr Anand & family are very hospitable and happy to offer advice / assist with onward travel. The breakfasts are plentiful and tasty. It's located within a short walk to all the main Fort attractions, but in a quiet residential area. I would strongly recommend the Homested for a comfortable worry free place to stay in Cochin.

We stayed in Homested on the recommendation of Lonely Planet. We had travelled to many places in South India during our trip in 2012. On hindsight, we realize that Fort Cochin became our favourite holiday spot, courtesy--hospitality at Homested extended by Mrs and Mr Devanand. It is truly a very comfortable and secure place to stay. We still miss the truly typical Kerala's delicious breakfast served by the couple. Homested is conveniently located at a walking distance from the backwaters and the Chinese fishing nets, where all the action is for a tourist. We now know where to go once we are at Cochin. Highly recommended.

The homestay is newly renovate. It's at the very good location in Fort Kochi where you can easily walk to the attractions. The room was nice and clean. There are two exit doors from the guest rooms, one through the main house living room and the other you will just go out without having to come into the house. Also there are many area in the house where you can hangout. The cooking was authentic and very delicious. There were times when the wifi was down, but Dev offered us to use his computer with aircard, so there's nothing I can really complain about :) He also gives good advise on our further traveling plan.

Great family who are all attentive and kind. Great rooms that are spacious with a serene balcony. The place is located in a quiet neighbourhood, with nothing but birds to wake you in the morning. Its 10 min to the Basillica and the Chinese Fishing nets, most things are easy to walk to in a day. Breakfast was lovely, and different each morning. There is a top chef in the house! They even showed me how they make some of these dishes which was a great sneak peak! They were so attentive, always offerring me tea or snacks throughout the day. Its these small details that make a big difference! Despite there being a lot of mosquitos in the area, I was unbittenfor my 2 day stay- which I can attribute to the length these guys go to ensure youdont have any unwelcome mosquitosin your room! Lastly, wifi available! What more do you need?!
