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

Location is good..very close to the jetty. The owner, Matthew and the manager, Thomas, were very accommodating and helpful. They gave us a very good deal on the house boat and the food was really good. Rooms were nice and clean and we enjoyed our stay..a definite recommend!!

We felt like home away from home here, mom's breakfast was excellent, every day there was different south Indian breakfast, very well made. Thomas was very kind, our stay was originally for 5 days, we cut short our stay to go to Thekady, Thomas was kind enough to accommodate us without any charges. The room is spacious and location is...

Beautiful rooms, good wifi, hot powerful shower, very friendly and helpful host and quiet location - what more could you want? perhaps a lovely friendly dog called Julie! Great place. Will use this again.
