Biju is an amazing host with a beautiful house. He was so welcoming and kind that we were genuinely upset we had to leave. Perfect breakfast, very relaxed and chilled vibe, gorgeous home with surrounding garden, Jackie the dog was the cutest thing ever! The room was perfect and so we'll decorated, considering it was within our budget it far...

We initially booked one night at Bella Homestay but we enjoyed it so much we ended up extending our stay to four nights. Bijou was an excellent host, warm and welcoming, and really made us feel at home. The house is beautiful with a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere, a lovely, individual style of decor and very clean. Bijou spoiled us with...

Bijou was a fantastic host - helped us with everything and made us feel very welcome in his beautiful home. Breakfast was fantastic and the room was very comfortable and clean. Couldn't ask for more from a homestay.

Excellent homestay with a very friendly host. The location is perfect to explore the backwaters. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden and the room was nice and clean and came with ac. The only regret we have is not having stayed for another night.

We stayed with Biju and Natasha (and Jack!) when we visited Alleppey. Their property is incredibly clean, comfortable and safe. They had great suggestions for things to do and sight-see, and were incredibly friendly. Their cook also made us the best idli and sambar that we have ever had on our Indian trip. Also, their adorable pug Jack was a...

What's not to like? Stayed for two nights. Warm welcome from Biju. Clean and tidy rooms and bathrooms. The garden is small but packed with plants and flowers which shields it from the outside, this combined with the fact that the propertly lies just outside the busy part of the city makes it very quiet there. Walking distance (about 10...

Bella's is a modest B&B place, yet the host Biju makes all the difference with his very warm and personal hospitality. From the moment you arrive and get the glass of fresh juice, and continuing with the relaxing terrace and the clean and pleasant rooms. The location is good and Biju’s the recommendations help to get around during the visit...

I'm only just getting round to write this review almost 3 months after we stayed at Bella. I don't usually write reviews however felt compelled as I wanted to say what a fantastic stay we had.

Like other people, we had a bad experience in this place. We booked a room by phone before our arrival in Alleppey and the owner confirmed us that it was ok. Finally, on arrival, we could not get our room because it was given to other people who booked by "booking.com" a few hours after us and who weren't already...

Dear Pascal, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are very sorry that your experience with us wasn’t a good one, but as I explained to you it was due to a misunderstanding not bad will. When you called us and ask for room availability we confirmed that we have free rooms at the moment, but we have never said...
