I came to the house boat in February 2013 with the friend I am traveling with. We have been visiting India for more than 2 months, mostly the south. I have never been in Kashmir before and I only saw this one houseboat, but I can say that it was an outstanding experience with very lovely and caring people. The rooms are really comfortable and the boat with the colonial-style furniture is definitely worth visiting! Most striking point for us: they provide electric blankets for the beds during the cold months. All in all, I can absolutely recommend this place

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Heaven Breeze, Group of House Boats! Heaven Breeze is located close to the old city of Srinagar, and offers a breathtaking view on the idyllic and peaceful open Nageen Lake. The houseboat, built in classic Kashmiri style, is currently run by Mohammad Shangloo and his lovely and warm family. They are the third generation to enjoy welcoming travellers and making them feel at home. Their delicious home-made Kashmiri food always proves to be a great hit among visitors. Walking in the footsteps of his father and grandfather who managed one of the first houseboats built by the British in 1880, Mohammad has safely guided travellers on adventurous treks into the mountains and on exciting fishing and hunting escapades for over 50 years. Today, he is working closely with Shaffi Shangloo, who has also been in the family business since childhood. Come and enjoy a restful stay at Heaven Breeze by lounging in the traditional Kashmiri sitting room, sipping a cup of tea on the porch while taking in the idyllic view of one of the most beautiful lakes in Kashmir.
