Reviewed February 8, 2014

We stayed over New Year. The bungalow was clean and the semi open roofed bathroom was delightful. Good value for money all round. We loved the food cooked for our first meal so we decided to take up their offer of a cooking course with Tony s wife and family. We would highly recommed this to other travellers as this was well worth while - to say the least ! It opened our eyes to real Kerala cooking and we have managed to re create, back home, some of the wonderful dishes she taught us.
An exceptionally friendly family and a great experience staying with them.

My partner and I have just stayed 2 nights at Dazzle Dew and we've had a very pleasant experience. Our room was simple but very clean and came with a fan, air conditioning, mosquito net and a rather large open bathroom. There's a deliberate hole in the bathroom roof allowing sunlight to stream through during the day, and showering under the stars at night was great. The lady of the house was extremely helpful. She organised our daily activity with excellent efficiency, had delicious fresh home made meals ready at our request and even gave us a detailed cooking lesson on Kerala cuisine.
The homestay is a 5 minute rickshaw ride to the town centre and 6 km to Allepey beach.
If you're looking for a simple but clean and friendly stay then try this place.

Had a wonderful splendid stay in dazzle dew..We booked 2 cottages over there and these cottages though small but were really comfortable.Rooms were clean ,tidy and well maintained.We stayed there for 2 nights. Hospitality given by the owner Mr.Tony and his wife was really great.The day we arrived we wanted to have a birthday celebration for 1 of our friend at midnight 12 and Tony helped us a lot by arranging the cake and decorations.Since we dint had any idea about good restaurants and the near by places,so tony suggested a few good places and he arranged an auto every time we needed.It was so helpful for us.On both of the days they provided us tasty homely food in breakfast prepared by Tony's wife.Overall we had a great time in Alleppey for which special thanks to Tony and his family.In future we will refer everyone for this home stay only.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good .

Too much of mosquitoes in the lawn area Except that it is an decent home stay and the rate is also acceptable.The rooms are clean with equipped with all the basic requirements.one more draw back is that there is no shops in and around the home stay.

Pros :
close to bus-stand, boat jetty
valuable advice/help from tony. He helped us to be on time for doing the 2hr govt site-seeing boat ride, this was much cheaper and fulfilling.
Decent home-made food from Tony's family.
(once we had meals from Abdullah's opp to boat jetty, it was good, In allepey we cdnt quickly find a good restaurant though)
Auto on call arranged by Tony
though all places are nearby, auto charges were slightly high (atleast this is what we paid)
Rs.100 to railway station, beach
Rs.50 to bus-stand, boat jetty

we went with our 3yr old daughter. Was worried about insects as bathroom is open. But faced no problems, though we did use at night.

Nice balcony, with a thoughtful fan on top.

Very high value for money, comfortable. i will recommend this place for any of my friends/family.

Cons
-----
Tony talks about solar water heaters in future, until then use a bucket to ferry your hot water.
we had trouble for around 2 hrs, with water from tap being dirty, so check with Tony if the water tank is been recently cleaned.

An auto ride from the railway station will set you back by Rs 60-80, but the peace in the homestay is worth the ride. The accomodation is in sets of two cottages each, away from the main house.

Pros:
1. Quite near to the finishing line jetty road from where most of the Shikara/houseboat rides start, should cost Rs 20-30 by auto.
2. Novel open-roofed bathroom arrangement.
3. Wi-fi available, though sometimes a bit spotty.
4. Tony, the owner has a real good knowledge of the area and his tips were usually spot on.
5. Good home-made food.

Cons:
1. No running hot water, would need to lug a bucket back from the main house.
2. Chances of entry of mosquitoes if the doors are left open for long, but the mosquito menace is common throughout Alappuzha.
3. There's a temple out nearby, the sounds from which may disturb only the most sensitive of sleepers in the morning.

All in all, a very enjoyable and hospitable stay with good value for money.

Room Tip: Prefer a cottage with the adjoining one vacant, as it would help in providing privacy. Otherwise all...
