“A Lovely Friendly Homestay With Authentic Keralan Food”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

As soon as we arrived from our long flight from the UK and arrived at Beenas,it just felt right,. Beena and Sudesh gave us a warm welcome ,and straight away we felt at home,the room was clean and big enough for our needs.What I enjoyed most of all was the lovely food and all the dishes of chutneys, fresh veg and lovely curry dishes, and sitting around the long table chatting with fellow travellers and with beena and sudesh who gave us some good advice(especially about catching the local bus to alleppy what an experience.Thank you very much Beena and Sudesh for making our stay with you so memorable.This was our first trip to India and we have fell in love with it ,so at some point i`m sure we will be back at Beenas and look forward to it.

We only had the pleasure of staying at Beena's for 2 nights as she was fully booked... but it was certainly a stay that we shall remember for ever!!!!! Such hospitality is rare!!!!! We were treated like kings!!!! Nothing was too much for us and all the other guests.... Anything needed....taxi, massage, Beena arranged it quickly and efficiently.
Rooms were comfortable and spotless. But the biggest surprise of all was the food!!!! Included in the price (1,700 rupees for 3 in a good sized 3 bedded room) we were given the most generous breakfast imaginable. Beena and her husband (who did the cooking) would keep the food flowing.....The best Kerelan food imaginable (different each day)..... chopped fruit.....toast; honey, jam, butter...endless cups of tea or coffee.....even bottles of water were continually being brought out.....And then again, in the evening a fantastic spread was prepared ....yet another feast!!!!!!
I don't think it's possible to beat this homestay... A sheer must!!!
Thank you Beena and husband for sharing your home with us and feeding us oh so well! When we come back to Kerela we'll make sure we'll book way in advance to avoid disappointment in finding you fully booked!!!!

Room Tip: This Homestay is not in the centre of Fort Cochin. It's in a quite area and takes less than 5 m...

Sudesh and Beena really created a special place there! it is not about the house (location and rooms are average) it is about their warm caring for the guests. the special thing is, that all travellers enjoy a home made (Sudesh is a great cook!) dinner together and this really was a very special experience for us!
the next day we moved to a place in the center of Fort Kochi. the location there was much better, but we missed the nice evening dinner...

This place deserves all the 5star reviews it receives. It's a lovely house, with nice, clean rooms in a good location in Fort Cochin, but the thing that makes the place stand out is the hospitality of the family, the wonderful home cooking, and the overall atmosphere of the place. There's great communal space for guests, and Beena and Suri can't do enough to help you-have confidence in arranging trips through them as well-you won't get a better price in town! I couldn't say enough to praise this place, simply if you're going to Cochin, make sure there's availability here, even if you have to arrange your trip around it!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights but could easily have stayed for longer. It truly felt like a home, Beena and her family are lovely people and they work hard everyday to make sure that your stay is perfect. Breakfast and dinner is included in the rate, the food was delicious and it was really nice to sit round a table each morning and evening with fellow travelers and share stories etc... we met some lovely people that we will keep in touch with. The homestay is about a 15 minute walk to the main centre. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.
