We stayed with Motty and Lali in late December 2012 as part of our Kerala and Tamil Nadu itinerary. Even before we arrived, Motty was very helpful in making suggestions regarding our itinerary, booking a driver onward from Alleppey and arranging a houseboat. When we arrived, the room (in a separate building from the main house) was very clean and spacious and had everything that we needed for a comfortable stay.
However, the highlight was Lali's delicious Keralan home cooking. As a traveller, it's not often easy to get a taste of what the locals eat at home so it was great to have an excellent cook prepare meals for us. Having lived in Kerala all his life, Motty is obviously very knowledgeable about the local area, customs, etc. and took a lot of time answering our questions about life in Kerala and India more generally.
Overall, a highly recommended stay and I would not hesitate to return to Motty's should I ever find myself back in Alleppey.
