    Really good value for money”

    Much more comfortable than other places we had stayed around India, especially the suite rooms which have a small kitchen attached. The owners couldn't have been nicer, always available for any requests we had. We organised a trip to the backwaters nearby through them, it was nice albeit a bit of a slow pace as not engine powered boats but traditional pole pushing guys. Still recommended, and the guesthouse is highly recommended :-)

    Great homestay in Fort Kochi”

    The Elim homestay is well located in a central location of Fort Kochi, near sights, conveniences. The couple who run it look after the guests and are very kind. The room was comfortable, clean and the best value I experienced so far in India. I did not try breakfast but occasionally had tea and delicious snacks prepared by Daisy. George was always helpful with suggestions for visits and travel arrangements without being pushy. I would surely come back next time I am in the area

    My second stay at this unpretentious but excellent place. Great attitude on the part of proprietor George and staffer Bindu: if you need something they will try to make it happen. Genuine Kerala breakfasts served, also brewed coffee. Slightly out of the very touristy part of Fort Kochi (15-20 min walk) which can be a plus depending on what you're after.
