Maison Casero Home Stay
Ranked #50 of 451 Kochi (Cochin) B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Maison Casero is centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood, an easy walk to most Fort Kochi sights. Our room was fairly basic but very clean and comfortable with an en-suite shower room. The veranda outside is a great place for breakfast.

Priya and Jaison were very welcoming, and very helpful with our early departure on our final morning. When our ceiling fan developed a squeak, there was no hesitation in offering us the air-con, which usually costs a little extra.

The Kalarippayat demonstration at the nearby Kathakhali Centre is very exciting. Ask Priya for details.

Room Tip: The room next to ours - 1st floor on the right - had extra windows onto the veranda and looked to be...

One of the better value options in Kochi. Great location on a quiet lane near to Santa Cruz Basilica but what makes the place stand out are the kind hosts, Priya and Jaison. Priya is a very warm hostess who makes everyone feel at home. The Homestay is especially popular with single women travelers.

In addition to the rooms in the house, there are now an additional two rooms nearby. These were not quite fully fitted out when we stayed in December (e.g no mirror in bathroom) but are a good option for a family or several friends travelling together as there are two rooms with an adjacent living area (empty when we stayed but I think there are plans to furnish this area). No aircon in these rooms.

I stayed here for 3 nights recently. It was my first trip travelling alone and I'm so glad this was the first place I stayed. Priya is such a lovely lady, and a really, really good host. From the moment I arrived she made me feel welcome and comfortable. My room was clean, and a good size with all the facilities I expected. The Homestay is in a great location for exploring Fort Kochi.
I had the Keralan and Continental breakfasts and thought both were really tasty, and it was nice to eat outside on the roof terrace.

Jaison and Priya also organised a taxi from the airport for me and I bought a Kathakali ticket from the Homestay. On the last day Jaison even gave me a lift to the ferry terminal on the back of his motorbike!

I would really recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in the area

Maison Casero is a really nice place to stay at cause you will find a place with a friendly family in a cosy house. So if you want you can get in touch with indian family life. They are really kind hosts, took care of us very well and also helped to organize trips and so on. Our room was very clean and comfortable with fan and aircondition (your choice), big bathroom and a lot of windows so that we had sunny daylight all the time. There was also a terrace where you can sit and relax or take your breakfast made by priya. Restaurants, shops, harbour, ferry and attractions are only a few minutes walk. We felt very welcome!

big thank you to priya, jaison and the little ladies :)

We arrived in the Morning and we welcomed with warm homeowners face and they already waiting for us
After introducing we entered into the House, so clean and simple, we take off our shoes to keep the clean house.
There are three rooms on the top floor and we had 2 choices
After selecting and placing backpacks went to the balcony and a delicious breakfast was waiting for us,
Local breakfast, coffee and a glass of fresh pineapple juice
After breakfast we talk with homeowner (Priya) and overview map of the island and possible plans to do.
Homeowners will be very helpful to book tickets for Katakaly, Beckwater and a tour of the munnar city and visiting the Elephants and tea plantation.
There is a suitable place to rest and sleep, every morning when you wake up surely good breakfast ready on the table
I strongly recommend choosing maison casero , because you cannot able to find better than this
