I stayed at Venice castle for one night with my family on 29th October 2014. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Mr.Mathew and his mom looked after us really well. He is very friendly and very helpful. The rooms are really clean and big. The bathrooms are also very big and clean. There is also wifi here at... More

This homestay is located in a quiet lane, just the singing from a temple nearby and the birds can be heard. But it is still near the bus station (walkable distance). The family is very nice, friendly and open. The breakfast the mother cooks is amazing! The room is spacious and a shared balcony on the first floor invites to... More

Venice Castle is a lovely place. It's a short walk from the buses, boats and places to eat. The room was a good size and generally clean. There was a nice balcony to sit and relax too As mentioned in previous reviews, the mosque is a little loud at 5am, but it isn't for long. After the first couple of... More

We booked this homestay the day before due to our plans to take a houseboat changed - and what a great thing that was!! It was to our advantage to stay here and take a shikara boat trip rather than join the hoards of houseboats on the lake. Thomas is a great and generous host - even offering to lend... More

We stayed at Venice castle for one night. At first we were dropped off at the wrong hotel but Matthew came to get us free of charge. The service and kindness of everyone there go above and beyond expectations. They helped arrange a taxi for us first thing in the morning and even still woke up to make us breakfast... More

The house is beautiful run by a very helpful and enthusiastic team (Thomas, Matthew and his mother). It's well located near the house boat dock area (around 15 minutes walk) and around 10 minutes walk to the centre of Alleppey. The breakfast is a choice of Keralan style (sambar/dosas etc) or Western (toast, jam) or a mix of both! We... More

Extremely friendly, comfortable and amazing value homestay. Handily close to ATMs and the bus station. Thomas was such a lovely host and it was an absolute pleasure to stay. The Indian breakfast was plentiful (it keeps coming!) and delicious. The homestay really is something of an oasis in a bit of a grubby town.

Overall a good stay, but since we stayed for only one night would not comment further. However, the owner, Mr. Mathew and Mr.Thomas took great pains to arrange a shikara on Dussehra when no boats were available.Really thank them for the experience. No shoes policy inside the house should be specified especially for people with orthopaedic problems with special shoes.

We stayed here after having a few nights in other accommodation in Kerala which were much more expensive - and this homestay was soooo much better! They really should charge more! Why? - The room we can was large and comfy with a fan and aircon! The bathroom was clean and with lovely lovely hot water from a powerful shower.... More
