We've been traveling for a few months and this has been the best value for money. Not sure if it was due to the fact that it was low season but our deal was brilliant and the breakfast was more than I expected. George and his wife are really dedicated to their business and it's a great one worth supporting....

My Freind and I had a lovely 3 night stay at Elim Homestay. George was very chatty, helpful and offered good advice. We also had a fabulous breakfast every morning. Great location and a nice walk into Fort Cochin. Definitely recommend this lovely place.

My stay at elim's was clean and comfortable. The rooms appear to be in a decent condition. Somehow they lack character but not a big deal. So, the owner George is a nice person, a tad pushy with extras. But helpful and service oriented. The breakfast of an omelet, toast, jam and tea was nice. Location wise it is a...

We stayed here for two days in the middle of January. The hotel is located on a quiet street quite near the tourist sites at Fort Kochin - its not more than a 10 minute walk to princess street and the nearby Chinese fishing nets. The room was very clean with Indian standards and clean enough with western standards. Overall...

We were served beautiful breakfasts each morning which included a taste of a traditional Kerela breakfast which our hosts kindly provided very early on our last morning before our long bus journey. They were...

The room was spotless, with nice,white, crisp sheets. Also, a large white towel was placed nicely on the bed. I wanted a bicycle to ride and within the hour I had my bike. Delicious breakfast. I especially liked the Indian version of white bread, with fresh coconut milk. A unique dish to Kerala. This is a warm, welcoming Homestay. They...
