i'd like to say that i'm not the type of person who typically writes reviews but after the wonderful experience i had at this homestay i felt compelled to write.
i've had the pleasure of staying at christville homestay for the last two years. the first time was a brief stay of just one night but even in such a short time preethy, joy and their two daughters made an impression. i arrived late and at the last minute, so they offered up one of their own rooms as an 'emergency' room to accommodate me. this year, returning to india, i made a point of making it back to fort kochi, mainly to stay with this family. i cannot say enough good things about their place. the very reasonably priced rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean, bright, cool (with ceiling fans and a/c) and with fully equipped western bathrooms. there are private balconies looking onto a mango tree and a great shared rooftop area. the location is ideal, a stones throw from all the fort kochi attractions but tucked away in an inviting laneway - so quiet and calm as well. the chai is hot and plentiful (as is the continental or kerala meals if requested). all that being said, it is really the family that makes the stay. while it may be cliche, they really do make you feel at home. they are very attentive to any of your needs, but without being overbearing. there is an atmosphere in this place that is special. whether it is sharing laughs over delicious breakfasts with preethy, conversations with joy about his morning badminton games or catching up on the latest computer games with their two daughters - you really feel genuinely welcomed here as part of the family. in all my travels throughout india, south to north, i cannot think of a better place to stay.
