Sourabham Homestay
Ranked #5 of 44 Kozhikode B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We were made most welcome by our charming hosts. Their home was clean, comfortable and well maintained. They were a very kind couple who take care of their guests. We had three meals there during our one night stay, all of which were plentiful and very delicious. We spent some time walking up the land break in Beypore and were lucky enough to visit a shipbuilding yard where they construct, mainly by hand, the most amazing, enormous, wooden ships for wealthy Middle East clients.

We loved our stay at Sourabham Homestay. Our hosts were gracious, helpful and super interesting from beginning to end. The home is a lovely vintage home, filled with pictures, dark woods, and all sorts of interesting bits. Our room was just a wonderful place to relax, a real destination. Sourabham is super comfortable. Even before we arrived, our hosts' son answered loads of e-mail questions, put up with our multiple changes of plans, and helped us with sight seeing ideas. And, at our departure, despite our protestations, our hosts got up at 4 AM to make breakfast for us when we had to leave early to avoid a political strike that was to close the main highway. We loved Beypore---not many tourists---and we very much enjoyed our stay at Sourabham.

Sourabham is exactly what a real home-stay ought to be - a 'home-away-from-home' experience! The charming elderly couple running the place pampered us like family members, fussing over our smallest needs. The welcome was very warm, with an 'exotic' tropical welcome drink. There is a very interesting collection of trinkets, bric-a-brac, and rare family photographs adorning the walls and cup-boards in the living room! Very, very charming!

The initial pleasantries exchanged, we were shown to our very expansive a/c room on the first floor, with its own, vast 'private' balcony looking over the greenery/lawns around the place! It also had a sit-out, beside a huge bay-window, over-looking the garden in the back-yard! The wardrobes and cup-boards were large enough for guests to place their belongings in the room. There was more than enough place for the extra 'comfy' mattress to be laid out on the floor (beside the king bed) at night. The air-con worked fine. The bathroom was huge; and well-equipped with toiletries, hot shower, bath towels, etc. It also had nice views of the greenery around! The setting was a perfect detox for jaded city souls!

The setting of the home-stay is in North Beypore, a very serene and green suburb of Calicut (Kozhikode). There is a fruit and vegetable garden inside the home-stay itself, and one could well spend a lot of time here, reading a book under the abundant shade of the trees around, with only the pleasant chirping of birds for company! The drive from the airport took us just under half-an-hour!

The dinner and breakfast were the most delectable we had ever had at any home-stay. We had specially requested a typical/traditional Keralan 'sadya' for dinner and the hostess prepared a most delicious dinner for us! It was a unique experience in itself! The 'payasam' (dessert) was to die for!

Breakfast the next day was a mix of the Continental cereal, milk, jam, butter, toast, fresh fruit, fruit juice, eggs made to order, besides the usual tea/coffee); and south Indian we requested (idlis, masala dosas, 'podi' or powder to go along with the idlis and dosas, sambhar, coconut chutney (besides others), pickles, incl. the delectable mango pickle, etc.

No special request - at meal time or otherwise - was too much of a trouble for the wonderful hostess and her genteel husband (he showed us around the house, incl. getting my son's quota of his usual daily morning newspaper!). In fact, the hosts go out of the way to please their guests! All in all, it was a very pleasant experience for us (would rate it a perfect 10/10), even if as a transit stay - while on our way to Wayanad.

I would strongly recommend it to anyone planning on, or looking for a very comfortable and pleasant home-stay experience while holidaying in/around (or transiting thru') Calicut (Kozhikode).
