We stayed a week in Church view Homestay and it was great. This is really a Homestay and has been one of the best places we stayed in in India. The room is clean (cleaned every 2 days), spacious with a large balcony. The bathroom is modern. Internet (wich is a big issue in India) is working here correctly. But... More

An amazing stay! Our first experience of Homestay and we would highly recommend CVHS to visitors of Kochi that are looking for lodging options. Location is great, but the best feature is the high level of hospitality that is provided. Jintu and Binoy's family took excellent care of us and ensured that we had a relaxing and a comfortable stay.... More

The very welcoming young family gave us a discount for staying more than a few nights, and we really enjoyed the front room with the view of the church and the wonderful balcony. The location is very easy to find for tuktuks (because of the church) and central for walking around town.

Very convenient location and extremely attentive and helpful hosts. Directly across from the Santa Cruz Basilica and on the main street so can be quite noisy during the day or when the church decides to broadcast its services. We rented both rooms available. The front with a nice balcony gets much of the noise. The back is much quieter. Clean... More
