Stayed at the home stay for two wonderful nights. The rooms are situated in an old quaint farmhouse that has been restored. The bathroom has to be the best I have used in India. Our room over looked the lake and the gardens of the grounds so peaceful. Breakfast came with the room rate and lunch and dinner are available... More

Had a lovely room facing the lake. The private balcony and the beautifully kept tropical garden added to the lovely experience of this peaceful and tranquil old heritage property. Stayed here a couple of days before heading to Alleppey to spend a couple of nights on board one of the houseboats. Definitely worth a stop. The rooms are Spartan but... More

This homestay hotel sits on the banks of the Kerala backwater lake. It is beautiful with orchids in the garden, a hammock by the lakeside and lots of shady trees. The rooms are enormous, clean and each with their own verandas. Sandra and Bala, the hosts are so kind and friendly they make every effort to make one welcome and... More

This is a homestay run by very warm and lovely couple. They had made all arranged for us from airport pickup to drop and sightseeing tour. We had the place to ourselves and the serene backwaters and quiet surroundings gave it a peaceful and cosy holiday. Food is excellent, do try the recommended dishes. The view is spectacular.

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at Vembanad House in January. We opted not to do a houseboat stay and were very glad that we stayed at Vembanad, which is located on a small backwater canal in a small community about 12 kms from Allepey. The house is only accessible by boat (about a 10 minute ride from the roadhead).... More

We expected a few days at Vembanad House to be a relaxing spell after a hectic 2 weeks in the Delhi-Agra-Rajasthan area, and that is exactly what it was. The other T.A. reviews describe it well. The charming and hospitable Sandhya and “her boys”, look after you very well. We particularly enjoyed her homestyle Kerala cooking, three meals per day.... More
