This is located in the heart of Fort Kochi and all the places worth visiting in Fort and Matancherry area are at walk-able distance from this place. We took a Uber to reach the place. Although the driver had a decent knowledge of the locality we had to call the owner's number to convey the exact details to the driver. The owner was very clear in explaining it and that meant the driver took us to the place without anymore hassle.
After reaching the place, we realized we had booked a place owned by a very courteous couple. We really felt like we were staying at a friend's place. We got to spend sometime with the owner during breakfast and it was a good conversation about the locality and the Kochi city in general. Overall it was a very satisfying experience to stay at the place supplemented by the fact that it is in the heart of Fort Kochi.
Joy and his wife were brilliant hosts. They rent several rooms in a floor abobe their home. The room we rented had a/c and a private bathroom, as well as access to a shared living room and kitchen for the guests. The location was good.
What made this stay brilliant for us was just how friendly and hospitable joy and his wife were. They were really nice people. His wife also made us a fantastic indian breakfast! Thanks for having us :)
Joy and Jay see were the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. The lounge and kitchen facilities were really great and we appreciated the filtered drinking water on tap. Hot water for showers was especially nice.
The home stay is in a lovely quiet area off a main street.
Joy's skill at fruit carving was very impressive and made the fruit taste even more delicious than it already was.
This is a lovely home stay and highly recommended, definitely worth a return visit.
I was a girl traveling alone in Kochin and, because of my stay at Joy and JC's, I couldn't have felt safer. Besides the amazing bedroom/bathroom, the presence of the family and their attention to completing hosting duties was phenomenal. After using AIRBNB multiple times, I can easily say this was one of my best experiences.
They provided breakfast in the morning and also helped plan and book my day activities. When I needed a driver for a few hours, they provided a local auto driver who made me feel very safe and charged an affordable rate.
The location of their home is also walking distance to most attractions or a short auto ride away. It's in a cute neighborhood which makes you feel like you're living with the locals instead of the tourist hub. It's also beautiful!
Lazar homestay was a very pleasant place to stay in Fort Kochi. It is well located in a quiet lane near the centre of Fort Kochi. The room I stayed in was neat and clean and had air conditioning.
The hosts are very accommodating and helpful. They offer to book tickets to local shows and day trips. The breakfasts are varied and tasty. Wi-Fi is available.
Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
Joy and his wife are great hosts. The house is located in a quiet road but in walking distance to all sights Fort Cochin. The room and bathroom was very clean and the bed very confortable. The breakfast was great and varied every day. We enjoyed the stay and can absolutely recommend this place!
Realy, we felt by Joy like at home. He and his wife cuddled us with delicious breakfast, gave us good information to visiting Cochin and to continuing our trip. The house is very nice and well located in a quiet private road, in the middle of Fort Cochin and is easy to reach by ferry and by bus.
