Rooms correspond to the price of a very basic homestay. Breakfast was limited. When we wanted to pay with credit card, we were told we had to pay the commission. We would have liked to be informed previously or there should be a notice with this paying extra "service".

We stayed here in early October and had to book last minute as our other home stay fell through. The owner and his family were so wonderful and helpful, helping us to organise onward transportation to Munnar and recommending somewhere for dinner. Breakfast was delicious and so much of it! Was great to share it with other guests staying there... More

Venice castle is conveniently located in the main Alleppy town and bus stand. I appreciate Mr. Thomas, manager of the property, for the personalized attention to the guest. He was very helpful, always smiling and very cooperative person. This was the best part of my stay there. Pros: 1) Near to the town. 2) Clean rooms. 3) Helpful Host (Mr.... More

My daughter and I enjoyed this haven of peace in Alleppey just walking distance from the backwater Ferry and the bus stand. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful and the included breakfast was amazing. We would be happy to come back to this home stay.

Well where to start...the lovely people that run this home stay are so welcoming and kind I felt like I was right at home. I think it was Thomas that was running the show when we stayed. He was so accommodating, helpful and always smiling. Up for a chit chat but not intrusive. Always offering us cups of tea :)... More

We were greeted on arrival by the excellent host Thomas and a very friendly dog, Julie! Venice beach is close to the bus station but far enough away from the road to make this a peaceful 2 night stay, whilst near a Hindu temple and Mosque the noise from these did not disturb us once. The room was very clean... More

We stayed here as an overnight stop before joining a houseboat. Location is perfect, close enough to the local shops/eateries but far enough from the hustle and bustle. Very quiet surroundings and very pretty. The house is lovely with big, and clean rooms. The owner is very friendly and offered us a much needed cold drink and chai massala on... More

We stayed at this homestay overnight before taking a houseboat. It was great for this purpose. The owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable. They were always asking if we needed anything and were happy to help us organise our stay. They also made good suggestions of places to eat or visit. The rooms are simple but very clean and the...
