Lovely stay with the warmest hosts; Preethy and her husband seem to just ooze kindness. We just stayed 1 night and didn't even have breakfast (for no reason other than rushing to bus) but I saw others getting it up on the beautiful balcony with so many plants etc and it looked like the perfect way to start a day. The room was perfect, good strong fan which slightly helped the heat - very very hot but that's not their fault, although if you struggle with the heat maybe find somewhere with actual AC. Kochi is a hot spot!!! Christville is perfectly centrally located, a quick walk to the main st where the public bus from the airport can drop you, and tuktuks etc on your doorstep although you won't need them to see the main attractions- fishing nets and amazing seafood very close walking distance. Preethy also gave us a map on arrival and showed us best places to see. Unbelievably good value, best value in all I've been in India I think.
Spotlessly clean. Somewhat economical Kerala breakfast was good
Service should be better. There should be an exhaust fan in the bathroom.
The room is clean. The host is nice, feel trust and safe to stay. We arrived at midnight, really appreciate the host wait for us.
It’s a bit struggling to stay this budget room because the humidity, not well ventilated, even window is open, the fan is on. We add the ac for the last night's sleep. It makes a big difference. The bathroom also has air problems, even worse like a sauna room, we need to keep the door open. The window screen is fixed by velcro which creates some little space allowed mosquitoes in and hard to fix. The airport picks up and drops costs 1400 INR which is the normal price in town ( between 1200-1400 ). For that, I suggest Uber, if you have an India number. We spend 800 to reach. I didn’t like the 7 hours houseboat trip (1000 INR) they recommend. At the beginning of the trip, it is nice since the big boat going to some small water route. The view is amazing. But after lunch, if you choose to keep taking the big boat, the view is going next to the sea which is kinda the same view until the trip end. Including me, few people fall asleep sometime. I was asking the guide what’s the difference between small canoe and boat before making decisions. The guide said is all the same. If that’s the case why give options? Sun is big, no one wants to go for the uncover canoe. The tour also claims will stop in the village to show the local culture. This part is really poor. You only stop see a local women making rope by dry coconuts for 10 mins, not even walking around a bit the village or knowing the background of some local life.
The terrasse is so peaceful and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. Very good homestay with the possibility to have delicious typically kerala breakfast for a good price !
