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.

Vembanad House was really the best place during our Kerala Travel! The place and the garden at the lakeside, the house and Food were the best expierience of our trip. One should stay longer there; the nearby village gives more interesting impressions of life in Kerala. Small Homestay with best Value!!!

Sandhya was a great host, the house was extremely comfortable, and her cooking is amazing!!! There's not an awful lot to do in the immediate area, but it was nice to lounge and relax on the property. My sister and I were dropped off here after 2 wonderful nights on a house boat - its a great pit stop before... More
