Not far from the bus stops on a quiet back street. Thomas' infectious warm smile will make you feel happy and at home. Close to some great eating choices. Really enjoyed my stay here and didn't mind the brief morning call to prayer.

Venice Castle is located in the very busy town Alleppey, although tucked in a little quieter path behind the busy mainroad. The House itself Is very nice, clean and well maintained. You will have a very clean room, with western standard bathroom and AC, which is needed! There is also a very nice balcony overlooking the premises, which is very... More

On 21st Jan 2015 we took one A/C Double Bedroom in Venice Castle. It is a good homestay. The room had neat clean bed sheets, towels and soap. Mineral water bottle was given. Bathroom was very clean and neat with hot water. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. A very smiling, Loving person Mr.Thomas takes care of the homestay.

We stayed there in 1st week of October. The place is well maintained and the owner Mathew is an awesome person. He was really helpful in helping us arrange a cab from allapuza to munnar and the stay was also really pleasant.

- very clean room, comfortable and big, the bathroom with the hot water - the owner helped us to organise the houseboat and was very helpful. My husband was sick and they helped us to get to the good pharmacy where we could buy all the medicines needed - a very tasty breakfast - a very nice family

If you're looking for a midpoint between the beach and the backwaters, Venice Castle sits conveniently in the middle. It is neither walk-able though, so the host can arrange a tuk tuk for you, which takes you to either locations within 70 rupees if I remember correctly (10 min ride each way). The room was clean, bed was comfortable, wifi... More

A big thanks to Mr Mathew and the ever smiling Mr Thomas for making our visit a pleasurable one. Made our reservation through booking.com, check in was fast though we had arrived a bit earlier. So happy to find air-conditioning and spacious rooms after our stay in Fort Kochi. The place can be easy to miss, so better turn on... More

This is the first time I’m let down with the reviews from trip advisor. I really wonder whether the reviews given for this homestay is true. I had stayed in many homestays in different locations (coorg, chikmangalur, wayanad, goa, Hyderabad etc )and this is the worst home stay and the host that I ever met. I stayed for couple of... More

Venice castle is bright and clean with strong wifi and a good location. Walk to beach and canals to enter the backwaters. This homestay offers excellent home cooked traditional South Indian breakfasts. All in all, I didn't find that Alleppey had that much to offer aside from backwaters. That said, Venice castle is a great place to stay while you... More

Enjoyed our stay with the family in their nice homestay which is so conveniently situated in town. Good sized room with wifi and tv. Mary provides an ample breakfast and the family go out of their way to assist in making bookings for the boat and suggestions for meals. Would recommend Venice Castle as a base to stay while visiting... More
