We stayed at the Vembanad House for 2 nights in April 2015. The property can easily be located on Google Maps even though it is a bit interior. But be ready to be AMAZED at the sight of the peaceful and clean Vembanad Lake right in front of the property. The property is owned by the very hospitable, knowlegeble and... More

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at Vembanad House in January. We opted not to do a houseboat stay and were very glad that we stayed at Vembanad, which is located on a small backwater canal in a small community about 12 kms from Allepey. The house is only accessible by boat (about a 10 minute ride from the roadhead).... More

We expected a few days at Vembanad House to be a relaxing spell after a hectic 2 weeks in the Delhi-Agra-Rajasthan area, and that is exactly what it was. The other T.A. reviews describe it well. The charming and hospitable Sandhya and “her boys”, look after you very well. We particularly enjoyed her homestyle Kerala cooking, three meals per day.... More

My family & I stayed at 'Vembanad House' on the 4&5 October 2014. Frankly, i was a little skeptial about 'Homestay' concept since i never experienced it earlier, especially since i was travelling with my family (with my 6 yr old daughter) and i wanted to give them a good holiday. I must say that i am glad i picked... More

We stayed here for one night. Vembanad House is located on the shore of Lake Vembanad south of Cochin near Alleppey (Allappuzha) and is a lovely and stylish homestay with four rooms and an outdoor restaurant all on one level. The fixtures and fittings here are a cut above the usual Keralan homestay. There are hammocks on the lawn by... More

This is a beautiful home and the owners and their son are charming people. We had excellent food, and plenty of it. During the day we lounged around, reading or looking out over the lake, watching birds...There is a lovely boat ride into the backwaters where everyone rushes out to wave and say hello. I had a walk into the... More

Accommodation is in the charming old family house which is typical of Kerala. It is in its own grounds beside the backwater lake. These grounds are magnificent for idling the time away and you can be on your own despite other guests. There are plenty of places to sit and a hammock to lie in and just watch the lake... More

This home stay appears very special. The setting by the lake is amazing. Very quiet and peaceful, the crows being the only disturbance! Take a trip in a snake boat up the back waters and see where the locals live. The view at dawn over the lake with the fishermen at work will live long in the memory. The food... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend and it was in short - awesome. A great place with an awesome view and an amazing host to go along with it. There's not a lot to do around here but it's a really nice place to chill at. In short, it was the best homestay I've stayed at.
