Beena Homestay was a good as everyone described. Simple, very clean, spacious. We paid extra for a/c and glad we did. Nice to have the respite of an a/c room. Beena and her husband are very welcoming and acommodating. Offered great advice about our travel elsewhere in Kerala and called the house boat owner to ensure we were happy with... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Beena Homestay, and we really enjoyed it. She and her husband are incredibly happy, friendly, generous hosts. They were very helpful with regards to directions, hours, and suggested sites. And watching them with their granddaughter was a real treat; they're so cute together! With regards to the accommodations, our room was modest,... More

Stayed 3 nights in Beena, traveling with a friend. Beena and her smiley husband were super friendly, first arranging a taxi (800 Rs) to pick us up from the Kochi airport, giving water bottles, allowing us to switch to a different room because of a noisy neighbor. The non-ac rate was 1200 rupees, which included a delicious home-cooked breakfast and... More

This was my first experience at a homestay and it was amazing! The room was clean, the food was amazing and the hospitality blew me away.

We stayed at Beena's for just under a month in Jan 2012 as we were using Kochi as a base to explore the area. Given the length of time we were staying we did have concerns before we left about what if we didn't like the place etc etc. These fears were banished within 2 seconds of arriving! What a... More

I was very struck by what kind, good, interested and gentle people Beena and her husband are. They clearly enjoy their job, but don't let the pleasure stop them running a very good homestay. The food was delicious, the advice perfect and they were so flexible. I'd recommend it just to experience their hosting skills and enjoy their excellent hospitality... More

We were there in January 2011, and eagerly returned in February 2012. We contacted them far in advance (probably unnecessarily far) to make sure we could get in! Very clean, pleasant, and super-friendly (double Rs 1200, includes breakfast and dinner). Situated on quiet sidestreet off one of the main drags in Fort Cochin (Jacob Road), about 1 km from the...

This is only our second homestay in India but I am absolutely sure if we'd stayed in a hundred more we wouldn't be able to find any better than this one. This is a genuine homestay, and Beena and her husband Suresh deserve all the praise they've got here on Tripadvisor because they are such caring, warm and genuine hosts.... More

We were greeted by Beena's beaming smile, and after 24hours travelling were made to feel completely at home by Beena and her family, with Beena offering to prepare lunch for us. At Beena's all the guests are made to feel like extended family sharing meals together and catching up on each others' travelling stories or days' actvities. Beena and Suddish... More
