Reviewed 30 April 2014

When we arrived to Kochi,my friend Sofia was really sick, travelers sicknenss that is. They not only provided us with one of the best stays in India, but also helped us, getting her fresh coconut water, medicine and helping me plan a few trips! Wonderful energy, great family, would sincerely recommend it to anyone going there. It's hard to find accommodation that good in India- as holy as it is, it's just as dirty. :) Thank you for everything again!!

We went there in april for a couple of nights. Our room was clean, and had AC. No hot water. We paid 1200 rupees per night, low season. The wife in the family was lovely and made good food. The husband had an attitude that we didnt like, so we left earlier than we planned to.

Thanks for your average review. I would like to clarify one of your comment, that there is no hot water. We have 24 hrs hot water facilities (we have the solar water heater kept). You might have used the wrong tap and when you open itself hot water won’t come it takes a few seconds for the hot water to come. You could have asked about this when you were here for the 2 days which you were fully satisfied and full of praise about our home stay. It was on the 3rd day morning that you didn’t like my attitude. (You had taken the room only for 2 nights and were asked for a late check out. Our check out time is 11 am) Please do not give a false information to others because you did'nt like something or someone. Anyway thanks to your partner who was a gentle man and wish him all the best.

Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, convenient location. If you can reserve a room, u should. The owners do am excellent job. They even made me a meal at night (which is not a regular service) because I had been traveling all day and hadn't eaten. Go to Kathikali and get your mind blown. One tip if you fly in, take the bus from the airport (it's an AC Volvo) because a prepaid taxi will cost around 1000 rupees!!

Clean rooms that are basic. No tv and no hot water. Good location, walking distance to main Fort Cochin sights. Left to early to catch flight to try breakfast so can't comment. Owners very welcoming and friendly and gave good information on area and arranged our taxi for airport. Would recommend as budget accommodation.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your very good comment on trip. We are happy to know you liked your stay with us. And hope you'll choose Christville Homestay the next time you are in Cochin so that we could serve you even better.

And I would like to take this opportunity to clarify one of your comment on trip to avoid any future confusion concerning the facilities offered to our guests at Christville. You have mentioned that there is no TV and hot water. Its true that we dont have TV but we have 24 hrs hot water facility. I think you might have used the wrong tap for hot water and wished you could have clarified it at the time of your stay here instead of writing it in trip, which gives a wrong information to our future guest.

Anyway thanks for your good comment.

I stayed with Joy and Prithi for 2 nights having just arrived in India and off a long sweaty bus journey. The home stay is quiet, clean and in the perfect area to explore the sights of Fort Kochi. They arranged a massage for me and also tickets to the Kathkali show and were always super friendly and helpful about what to do in the area. The dosa breakfast is not to be missed - arrive hungry : )

Christ Ville homestay is truly home stay! The family who runs the place is very friendly and helpful. My room was good, clean and had airconditioning which is certainly a good thing in Kochi. However I would recommend the owner to provide the room was a chair. The breakfast is good with ample of fruit, sliced pineapple and bananas. The place is right in the centre of Fort Kochi area but in a quiet side ally. The owner arranged my trip to the backwaters. The 7 hours trip is highly recommendable. In short: thank you Christ Ville!

This was our first stop on our Indian adventure, and the PERFECT welcome. Our hosts (Joy and Preethy) arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport, and even though we were delayed, we was still waiting. Both Joy and Preethy were very polite, offering chai as soon as we arrived, letting us sit and relax. We were instantly given maps of the area, tourist destinations were pointed out and day trips offered. We were shortly shown to our room which was very clean and very well presented with a small balcony, clean towels, AC and a ceiling fan, fresh towels and bug screens. We were able to come and go as we pleased. Our hosts also booked tickets for the Kathakali for us. A really great stay, and if we head back to Cochin, we will stay here! Just wish we'd had some cooking lessons.
