“fantastic family-run homestay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

This place is really good value for money. The rooms we stayed in were of reasonable size, totally clean with a/c, decent showers, TV and balcony. You really couldn't ask for a better location in Fort Kochi. Most tourist destinations are within a short walking distance - such as the beach and the Chinese fishing nets. Saj and his family really go out of their way to help you and you can always ask them if you need advice about where to go in the local area. They also arranged reliable transport for us. Originally we were only going to stay for 2 nights - but we went back to Fort Kochi later in our trip and asked to stay at Saj homestay again. Even though it was fairly last minute, Saj's son was able to sort a room out for us. The breakfast was served on the balcony and was absolutely delicious. Overall we were really impressed and would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

The overall experience was good and the folks running the home is very polite and good natured. However, the facilities are minimal in nature. To cite a few things, the beds are not very comfy and the towels can be of white in color to provide the clean feel rather than the dirty yellow color. Above all, it is a safe place to stay and Mr. Saj is very knowledgeable on the places around and the taxis arranged by him are quite good and comes at a reasonable price with fairly polite drivers.

Room Tip: Road facing rooms have a balcony attached and seem to be a good place to relax and chillout

If you're on a budget, this is a great place to stay in Fort Kochi. The rooms are small and basic but clean, location is good, and Saj and his staff are friendly and helpful. My experience was fine and I have no complaints, but nothing really prompted me to move up to a 'very good' rating.

Great family and and full value for money for budget home stay. Very helpful, excellent food, very clean rooms and excellent experience to stay in Cochin. We went with our family and we followed his guidance to visit places. Breakfast was different and delicious everyday. Vehicle arrangements and all necessary requirements are looked after by him and his family in a professional manner. Rooms are a little small but with split ac and the charged rent, it is certainly worth it. Good job done by Mr Saj and his team. Hope we will get to visit again

Hi Saj, sorry for the late review....

Me and my wife stayed here on June 2012.I was planning a 2 day trip to Cochin with my wife and we chose to stay @ Saj homestay after reading all the good reviews in trip advisor. And it turned out to be a great place as all the people here have commented. We loved the hospitality, the food and the room. The room was clean and the breakfast was served of our choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ Saj homes and are planning to visit here again. Special thanks to Siyad and Mr. Saj for guiding us and making this trip memorable.

Regards,
Hari
