We learned how to cook 4 kerala dishes with Leelu and it was very interesting. Actually you don't really cook with her, she do everything, but she explains every steps very clearly so you have time to take notes and asking questions. And most of all, you get to eat the dishes after all. It worth it and Leelu and...

Staying at a local house hosted by a local family is an experience that no hotel can replace. Do not expect upscale accomodation, but do expect a local hospitallity by interesting and lovely couple. Add this to the close proximity (5 minutes stroll) to the fishing nets and the old and lovely town of fort cochin and you get a...

We loved staying with Leelu and Roy at Leelu's Homestay. The large rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and the Keralan breakfast was delicious. The cooking demonstration was delightful as was the delicious home cooked meal that followed. But best of all is talking to Leelu and Roy about their lives in Fort Cochin - a wonderful insight from such...

Roy and Leelu were lovely hosts, we couldn't have asked for better in Fort Cochi. Their beautiful big house has multiple levels with fabulous interior decor. Located right in the heart of Fort Cochi, all of the shops, restaurants and sight seeing was only a short walk away. We were welcomed warmly and looked after well. A delicious traditional Indian...

Leelu Homestay was a great experience! We were welcomed the minute we reserved the room. The owner of this homestay is very friendly and tries to help organize the trip wherever he can. The sleepingroom and Bathroom was spotlessly clean.
