Stayed here for one night to see Kochi and lessen the ride to the airport (rather than coming from further south). It's not really a homestay per se but a small two story "hotel" / guest house with a few rooms. The room was small but clean and overall fine. Could have used a mosquito net. The host is very nice and they have a private jeep which can drop you off at the airport. The location was perfect though. Everything is in walking distance and you are literally two minute walk from the Chinese fishing nets area. You're also close to the hipster like cafes and cobblestone streets. Also in walking distance (10 minutes) is the daily traditional music and theater which I highly recommend. You can get a map from the host.
