I found Bella Homestay on TripAdvisor when I was planning my trip to India. We wanted to cruise along the Alleppey Backwaters and everything sounded too good to be true. Except it was that good! This is the nicest house I've ever been to in India, super clean, friendly Biju and a great little Pug called Jack. We were greeted with fresh juice each morning and Biju arranged the canoe ride along the backwaters for us too. We preferred to do this rather than the houseboat - you get to really see what simple village life in Alleppey is like and you'll realize how much these people rely on the lake. The only downside is the low shower pressure, which is a small criticism. Plus, most people traveling around Kerala want to eat where the locals eat, so the recommendations we were given were more suited to western food and not quite what we were looking for. All in all, this was our first homestay experience and it won't be our last. Thank you Natasha, Biju and Jack.
