The owner and his family (including children and puppy) were very friendly and welcoming, as was the manager. The owner's mother was lovely and prepared excellent, traditional Kerala breakfasts. There were quite a few guests, so it was a fun around the breakfast table, but also a peaceful and relaxing base from which to explore the area. Very close to... More

My tuk tuk drive brought me here and I was extremely surprised at the quality of this homestay. It was in a great location close to the pier, bus station and the center of town.... More

Venice Castle I found to be an oasis of tranquility, more or less in the centre of Alleppey. Though central (very close to the main boat jetties), it is set back some way from the main road, and so noise wasn't a problem at all at any time. To the contrary, Venice Castle is set in a very quiet, peaceful,... More

Our stay in Venice castle was perfect for all three of us, from the very clean and large bedroom, the beautiful balcony, of course the wellcoming of Matthiew, Thomas, Matthew's mother... Breakfast time was always a great moment, I could enjoy indian food while children would eat omelets, cereals and toasts... And, what is always wonderful when you travel, Thomas... More

Alappuzha is rather a noisy and crowded town and Venice Castle is a much needed oasis on a quiet side street but only a few minutes walk from the main Boat Jetty Road and the places where it is possible to hire a boat (or even a canoe) to explore the backwaters. The building is obviously fairly new and the... More

We only stayed for one night and wished we had stayed here longer! It was the cleanest and most comfortable stay we have had in India. We had arrived after a horrific bus ride and were immediately met by Matthew and his Mother (who was always full of smiles). We were offered a seat and drinks around a very sociable... More

This was the sort of home stay that we wished to find: good location, nice and clean rooms for reasonable prices and a very friendly and helpful family. As long as there is no temple feast in the neighbourhood, it is really quite ;-) We only can recommend this place.
