The owner made us most welcome and was a good source of knowledge about Kochi. The garden with its hammocks made for a perfect afternoon away from the noise of the city too. Best of all were the tasty Keralan breakfasts lovingly prepared by the hosts! This homestay doesn't offer western style comforts but this is reflected in the good...

I am late in reviewing this homestay. For some reasons, it got postponed. But nonetheless, I feel I should provide my viewpoints of our visit to this wonderful place right on the backwaters of Kochi. Kumbalangi is a model village as far as I know, developed keeping nature tourism in mind. West Windz is one of the two homestays you...

We stayed one night in this lovely homestay on the backwaters. We were able to relax very well and enjoy our time there. We did kayaking and also catamaran boating which was fantastic.

I tried to checkin on 24th Sep'15, driving the last mile to the homestay is a driving test as only a hatchback can squeeze into the road with mirrors closed.

We booked west wind homestay as a bolt hole for our last 3 days in India prior to flying out of Cochin. We couldn't have found better. The host, Jojo is a star.

This is a rather lovely place and JoJo is a fine host. Lazing in a hammock on the edge of the backwaters as the occasional canoe glides by is as relaxing as it gets, away from the horn-honking and pollution that blights too much of India. For the money I would have liked more, for example, a more expansive breakfast...
