Such a lovely place, quiet and nice. The staff welcomes you with a big smile and you immediately forget that there was a mistake with your reservation. The all place is nice anyway! Perfect to catch a boat in the morning right out of your room. Highly recommended place.

Stayed here in Jan/ feb of 2014 A marvelous quiet place. The welcome smoothie was fantastic. Room was quirky with a nice 4 poster bed. The seats on the balcony just drift you off to sleep. The boss provided a hand written map of the area and tuc tuc just around the corner. Well worth a visit - and perfect...

Malayalam lake resort is a beautiful home stay right on the backwaters near Allepey. Jos, the manager is a super friendly and smily guy always doing his utmost to make your stay as perfect as possible. Our room was on the second floor of the house and was gorgeous. Everything is made out of varnished wood, the balcony is a...

The guesthouse is across a lake in a charming area. We had a triple bedroom with all beds coming with a mosquito net. The bathroom was clean though some of them are not equipped with hot water. The house is beautiful with nice balconies to relax and enjoy the backwaters view. We bought food to take away in the city...

We've been to this hotel following recommendations on TA and once arrived what a disappointment. At a rate of 3000rps/night you would expect a nice room with at least hot water. You have a really nice view that you can enjoy while relaxing or having you breakfast. Tough there are numerous house boats passing through. The owner is really helpful...

A little bit confused about this place, I don't understand why it is so highly rated. To be fair, you will have a wonderful view from the homestay and the staff is nice. But the rates are so high that I expected more. The rooms are basic as budget hotel rooms. The breakfast is average. Some of the reviews talked...

This place is tucked away from the crowds and fronts the river where you can sit on the balcony and watch the houseboats pass you by. We were there in the off season so had the place to ourselves and were very well looked after by the local owners. Lovely rooms and very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Had a great 1 night stop here after our boat trip. Great little spot and run by very friendly and helpful family. Had an upstairs room with a balcony to watch the passing boats at a very reasonable rate. All very clean. It was in monsoon so didnt have to contend with any other travellers and the boat traffic was...

I stumbled upon this homestay after doing some reading online. I wasn't able to find their email and couldn't call from abroad, so I contacted them via facebook (their facebook came up after a quick google search). To my surprise, they responded the same day and supplied me with their email address and confirmed a room, based on my preference....

During Christmas holidays 2013/14 with my hsuband we have been travelling in Kerala 3 weeks. We found this place through a french guide. It is nice BUT the traffic of house boat and other's is very loud during the day. The rooms are nice but completly without soundproofing, so just hope you have discreet neighbours. Last thing is the price......
