“Excellent and Real Homestay !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

I had a such a lovely time staying at Krishna-Leela that after spending 3 nights there, I wished I could stay longer. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, bathroom was spacious, modern and had solar water heating system. There was a seperate area just between the bathroom and bedroom with a full length mirror and steel almirah with keys.

The two guestrooms are located on the first floor whereas the owners live on the ground floor. The first floor also has some really nice common areas including a kitchen with microwave, fridge, gas-stove, a spacious balcony looking out into the greens, a living and dining room with a TV. There is an independent entry/exit gate available for the guests. What more can one ask for ?

The hosts were very helpful and gracious and provided me with non-stop wi-fi facility in order to help me complete some of my writing assignments. But leaving all this aside, the best part of the stay was that it really felt like "home". We had such a nice time talking to the owners during our breakfasts and dinners and within a short time, I felt they had become our friends. We shared our lives with each other and discussed everything under the sun. The authentic Kerala food served was so so good that I know I am not going to forget in a long time. Everyday, we were treated with new local delicacies and carefully explained the name and details of it by Nayana. She even shared her recipes with me.

Calicut is very often used as transit point due to its international airport or major rail station, but I suggest everyone to stay here longer and specially at this real family-run homestay (unlike guesthouses which run all over Kochi in the name of homestays). Calicut has many things to see and do and one should not miss the opportunity of savouring real Kerala hospitality. Loved it here and will definitely be back !

Room Tip: Homestay has 2 rooms and both are good and of similar design.

Before leaving Kerala we stayed at Krishna Leela homestay for 1 1/2 days . The hosts are very caring and they took us to the airport which made leaving Kerala even more sad.
The homestay is very comfortable, spacious and very clean with a pretty garden in front of the house. Each of the meals was very tasty and Nayana even cooked extra dishes for my husband´s milk allergie, so nice!
We also enjoyed the possibility to make tea and hot water in the upstairs kitchen of the "public" area. Thank you for everything.

My partner and I wanted to experience Indian home life and found just the place. The homestay was situated in a quiet and relaxing area. A twenty minute rickshaw journey into Calicut. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We even had our own little balcony where in the evening we could unwind with a cold beer. The owners were great. They were very helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend this homestay.

There was no lock for the house provided. ..if ur owner does not trust u how can u trust the owner... little discomfort n continental breakfast would b better rather than proper kerala food as tourist would come fir a homestay n not localites.

Sorry for the inconvenience.We had given you the keys of the rooms you had booked,the other areas ie living,dining,kitchen,balcony are all common,and that is why they cannot be locked.
Regarding Bfast,from the feed back we get from our guests,it is Kerala food which they enjoy best and that is why we served you the same.If you had mentioned your preference earlier we
would have had Continental food for you.

My two friends and I stayed here for 2 nights - one when we arrived in Northern Kerala and again the night before we left.

We were made very welcome and the accommodation was very comfortable. It was very interesting talking to Nayana and Vijay. They couldn't have been more helpful.

It was a very wonderful experience staying in Krishna Leela ,though we were only for one day(feb 9).We were treated very royally by the couple. They served us delicious breakfast and was very loving and caring.

We recommend Krishna Leela as a perfect and safe home stay.

I totally recommend Krishna Leela for genuine South Indian Homestay experience. Nayana and Vijay will make you feel so welcome and part of the family and surroundings. Nayana prepares delicious authentic South Indian cuisine and she thoroughly finds joy from you enjoying her creations. Wonderful family all around. I have stayed there twice and will definitely go back!
