Joy and his wife were thoughtful and attentive hosts. I was feeling sick when we arrived, and he drove me to the doctor first thing and bought me coconut water to help settle my stomach. They also helped suggest things to do and booked us tickets for a Kathakali performance. Breakfasts were delicious and the location is great - easy walking distance from Fort Kochin and a quick auto ride to Matancherry. The room itself was comfortable, clean and spacious, with hot water and essentials (soap, towels) provided. It got a bit stuffy when we were there (during the rainy season), especially when the power briefly went out and our fan stopped working, and the windows didn't have screens for mosquitos. That was my only complaint, and it's about what I'd expect for $15 a night anyway, but if you have the option to pay a bit extra for one of the first-floor rooms with A/C, it would probably be more comfortable.
My wife and I had a lovely time staying with Joy and his family, we felt like we were staying with family friends. The room and bathroom was spotless and spacious, and their location is a good base for exploring Fort Kochi on foot. They were very helpful in suggesting places to visit while we were there and with coordinating our onward travel arrangements. Their traditional breakfasts were delicious and we had some lovely chats with them when we got back in the evenings. All in all we would highly recommend them!
This was a perfect place for my first stop in Kerala. Joy and his wife are very helpful and generous people. The breakfasts were amazing and on Easter Day they shared a wonderful biriyani with us. Their house is in the perfect location for walking around Fort Cochin and the recommended restaurants nearby are wonderful - one of the highlights of my Kerala travels
We had a wonderful time during our stay with Joy and his family who were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and it was great to have the use of the lounge and kitchen during our 2 week stay. The location of the home stay is good for accessibility to shops and places of interest . Joy was very knowledgeable of the local area and places to visit on a day trip. We would certainly recommend staying there during a visit to Fort Cochin .
We had a lovely time with Joy and his family- all were helpful and kind, the location was great and the room was clean with cooling AC. Perfect!
Joy and his family were absolutely wonderful hosts! The location is fantastic (walking distance to all of the sites in Fort Kochi), the room was very clean, Jaycee's breakfasts were delicious, and most importantly, we felt welcomed by this beautiful family. We look forward to coming back to Kochi in the future, and there's nowhere else we would rather stay!
I had a lovely stay with Joy and his family. He was kind enough to wake up at 5am to come out and fetch me when I had trouble finding the place and to see me off when I had to take an early taxi to the airport. Room was simple but spacious and clean, and the South Indian breakfasts were delicious and filling. Joy was also incredibly helpful in helping me locate bike rental shops, particular places of interest, and in booking a nice backwater boat trip.
