The room was large, clean and comfortable. The A/C and WiFi worked fine. The bathroom was standard for India. It was pretty clean, but definitely needed more shelf space for toiletries. The staff was excellent. Biju and Ali's daughter, were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was splendid - traditional Keralan fare. We were given ideas about what to see...

We stayed at Sajhome for 2 nights at the start of our 15 day trip to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Using email, Saj kindly helped me to organise our itinerary, travel arrangements and accommodation. He did this brilliantly as my family, a party of five, thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience. The accommodation and food at Sajhome was lovely and great...

We stayed just one night here, at the very end of our Kerala trip, and were glad of its refuge after a long day's travelling by train, tuk-tuks and ferry. Sajhome is well placed for exploring Fort Kochi - and please note, Fort Kochi is NOT the same place as Cochin: in fact the taxi from Fort Kochi to Cochin...

Stayed for 5 days at Saj Homestay. We arrived around 8 am and we were greeted with such hospitality and a very awesome breakfast, Masala Thosai, pineapple juice fruits and masala tea. It was just amazing. Through out our stay there, Saj and his family made us feel so comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfy. Baiju, his...

We stayed only for a night. Host Mr. Saj and family are really helpful and made sure we are comfortable. The location of the place is very good for exploring fort kochi area.

Warm and helpful welcome, ice cold water waiting on arrival, clean and comfy room and reasonable bathroom. Really well located to explore Fort Cochin! Breakfast was good but not show-stopping, helpful maps and advice

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, our stay at Sajhome was absolutely faultless. We were greeted by Biaju who is the general house keeper/manager during the day time. He was so very friendly, helpful and couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable and fun. He gave us a map of the area, pointed out...

Saj and Baiji are extremely gracious, warm and helpful. We stayed at Saj at the end of a month long trip, and felt the breakfast was average (we have been spoilt by the elaborate Kerala breakfasts of other Kerala homestays), the location noisy (both on deck and in room) and the price high. Recommended if you are in need of...
