We didn't lodge at Elsa's homestay. However, we made a visit to their property as they had prepared our cruise to the backwaters. We only have good words for this wonderful family who attended us very nicely and making sure from the very beginning that our experience would be as grateful as possible. If you have the chance, book your...

Large, ventilation open common guest area including adjacent large, shaded roof terass with sitting benches in finest dark wood. And to top it up the couple...

First stayed with Elsa and Tomy at the end of 2008 for one night and they always remained in my memory. returned to Alleppey in November and had to look them up. Their house makes for a perfect stay with the bedroom and sitting area upstairs completely separate. Elsa is a great cook so breakfast was very good. She showed...

Very nice, clean and modern homestay, run by very friendly people (Elsa and Tomy). Two things you shouldn't miss: Elsa's delicious home cooking and a backwater tour (at least one night) organized by Tomy's company "River and Country Tours".

My family traveled throughout Kerala and stayed at different homestays, and Elsa's tops our list. Elsa and Tomy made us feel like special guests in their beautiful home. What was most memorable besides the hospitality was the outstanding home cooking. We were growing weary of the standard Kerala thali offered at restaurants. But Elsa demonstrated the diversity of Kerala's home...
