Pleasant, helpful family. Nice room, patio, and food. Centrally located.”

We had a lovely stay with Saj and his family. The room was clean, quiet, and cool with a nice western-style bathroom. The continental breakfast of eggs, toast, jam, and fruit were tasty (we asked for continental breakfast because we were suffering from Delhi belly). Saj and his family were pleasant. They offered recommendations, arranged a driver from the airport, and arranged a tuk tuk driver for around the city for the day. Overall a great experience and a highly-recommended place to stay.

At Saj's place you 'come home' while traveling, so you have the best of both worlds. The welcome is warm, the food is amazing, the rooms are comfortable and clean and the wifi is of good quality so that you can do all your travel research at ease. Saj also makes sure that your travel is hassle-free (taxi and excursion booking and payment all done by him.) Last but not least, this all comes at a super affordable price and so this is definitely a 10/10 for hospitality !

Kochi top spot”

We stayed at Saj Homestay for two nights, from the moment Saj and his family greeted us to our final goodbyes, we had a wonderful time. Our room was large, with plenty of storage and a beautiful en-suite bathroom. Everything was well maintained and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Saj was a mine of useful information which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Saj also recommended and organised our onward accommodation for Munnar and Alleppey and we have been delighted with both. We hired a car and driver for three days and this made travelling and sightseeing so much more comfortable and convenient. A special thanks to our driver Stanley, who did a fantastic job getting us to each destination safely. My only regret is that we did not have more time to stay in Kochi. Thank you Saj for your hospitality.

Excellent Stay!”

Saj was very responsive to my questions before arriving and continued to be very helpful during our stay. He was very kind to arrange our visits to Munnar, Kathakali performance, henna, and Kerala backwater tour. The Keralan breakfast each morning was delicious. To accommodate my travel schedule, he also generously allowed me to have Sajhome as my home-base for a few hours past the normal checkout time. In addition to being a welcoming place to stay, it was very close to the shops, restaurants, and cafes in the area.

Loved Saj Homestay - the room was one of the nicest we stayed in while in Kerala and the facilities (especially the bathroom) were fantastic. The Kerala breakfast was also delicious, and Saj and his family were incredibly accommodating in assisting us in buying tickets for events in Kochi and even providing a packed continental breakfast for our early morning departure!

I very much hope to go back here sometime.”

I enjoyed my four nights with Saj and his family immensely; they couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. My very comfortable room had recently been refurbished and the bathroom was much nicer than mine at home. It's an easy walk or rickshaw ride to the centre of town where you can indulge in eating and/or buying stuff - I bought too many books and had to arrange for them to be posted home. Saj can organize whatever you want and I very much enjoyed my day floating around the backwaters; the lunch provided was superb and the view across the creek from the terrace we dined on was lovely. And so many beautiful water-lilies - something I didn't expect! I could go on but you need to go to Fort Cochi to see for yourself.
