We absolutely loved our stay here. It is the perfect location with the backwaters to one side and the vibrant green padi-fields on the other. Lying in a hammock watching countless species of birds fly by was heavenly - we even saw a mongoose! The manager Puli is extremely friendly and helpful and arranged plenty of activities for us; fishing... More

This was my first stop in India. It was amazing to get off the busy streets into the quiet and peaceful backwaters location. It has beautiful scenery. In front you can watch the house boats drive by, while in the back there are vast rice paddies. You can watch the sunrise on one side and sunset on the other. Not... More

Really nice guest house with beautiful rooftop. Laundry service. Ashkar took good care of us, he booked a canoe trip on the backwaters that was really good. Room was ok we paid 600 RS for a basic double room at the second floor with bathroom. Warning, friendly atmosphere means sometimes noisy evenings party :)!

We stayed here a few nights and the room was okay. Not completely clean though. We had a fan but it was still too hot, and there where electrical issues each evening/night. The boys are very helpful. For the price it was okay and close to the busstand. We also took on a canoe day trip booked from this place... More

We went to lemon dew after hopping off the public ferry from Kolam and asking the first foreigner we saw for a recommendation. She said Lemon Dew, which was where she was staying, explaining that it had a nice rooftop kitchen where we could chill and cook our own food. The kitchen was fine, however the only room they had...

Hey Friend, I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in lemon dew. You could have mentioned that room was not clean while you checked in itself.

This is truly my home away from home. I have stayed in this place several times over the past three years and I love it. The rooms are simple and clean. The rooftop provides a great hang out and possibility to meet new people. The host, Sanil and his staff always make me feel welcome!

Got recommended to Lemon Dew and it was the best recommendation not only for the guesthouse but the day trip in the backwaters. We wanted to do a house boat but alot of people don't really recommend them as you don't get the full experience of the backwaters. With Sanil we booked a backwaters cannoe in Alleppey. It was phenomenal,... More
