I want to book a doble bed room AC house boat for my family, After a lot of replies from house baot people , I decided to go with the best price and at the same time Good quality.
Sreekumar is the first one to reply with a Honest quote of 7500 for Aleppey round, since i had aleppey to kumarakom charge was 8000 rs as its off season.
After rejecting few house boat people quoting lakeview had offered me @ 7500 some people started ofeering the same @7000 also.
In Trip advisor reviews also i can see only kerala canoe toursim, lake view house boat has reviews , since binu of canoe tourism has quoted 9k for the same i went with sreekumar.
But sreekumar of lake view house boat , had told me that he a local house boat operator and can offer a best quality when i asked him to reduce fare by 500.so I went with the first honest price quotation guy.
As he promised he offered the very good quality house boat( this is my 2nd house boat trip :-) , Rooms are very clean and neat and the staff were also decent and helpful.
I will strongly recommend this if you want a house boat with good quality still with in budget , i felt this is the best, as i had contacted around 13 house boat operaors for my trip.
DVD player remote did not worked. Only play option working , No Forward or reverse only Pause and Play & we eneded up in watching the same 1st one hour of movie thrice as its stopped in between.
Food : In my first trip i booked a house boat from aleppey where in the food was excellent And spicy which we andhra people like a lot.
But the Kumarakom guys food is slightly differnet , less salt and forget chilly...north indians may like. For dinner i informed make it spicy , but still i did not felt for dinner also ;-(.
But these are pro's to mention only , You will be happy with the house baot quality and the decent crew.I felt , Sreekumar is a straight forward guy, did not felt that impressive while spekaing ( dont expect near by tourist places info frm Him ;-)) ) , but after the trip i felt he has done what ever he had told me over the phone.
