Down near the lakeshore and very handy for the ayurvedic centre and houseboat dock, this shady little oasis nestles well back from the road, ensuring that it is peaceful at all hours of the day and night. Your hosts are warm and friendly and helpful in terms of where to go / what to do. The wifi is good near...

We stayed here a couple of nights. Take a mozzie net ( not provided). The house and gardens were lovely and quiet as it was situated well back from the road. The hosts were fairly friendly and suggested a very good boatman for a day out on the backwaters, James. It was a great day with James, he went out...

The house oozes with character and the rooms are clean and big. My room was cleaned and sheets were changed without me ever having to tell them. The big four poster beds looked a little daunting at first sight but they turned out to be very comfortable. There's wifi (that works) on the patio and a verandah overlooking a very...

We stayed here for the last two days of our Kerala trip with friends from the US. Easily walkable into town - about 10 minutes, and set in a lovely garden, with a peaceful covered verandah. Breakfast is a little extra - but great, and the whole place is very very reasonable. Mr and Mrs 'Sona' are really kind, very...

A lovely old house, with loads of character. We stayed for 3 nights, which was about right for Alleppey. Joseph and family were really friendly with lots of great information and stories. Nice spot out of the busy part of town but not far or much in a tuk tuk. The boat trip with James was great, the backwaters are...

The location is good and rooms are a decent size. There is wifi but the connection only goes as far as the covered patio. This place would be good value for the price, however, watch for bed bugs. It ruined my memories of the beautiful backwaters.

Last month I had a great lonely stay here for 3 days. The rooms are great value and more important: Joseph and family will make you feel at home. Despite the fact that I was the only guest due to the low season, I never felt alone and i enjoyed the conversations with the owners. Definitly one of the best...

We stayed here about a week in December of this past year and really enjoyed it. Our room, with its colonial decor, was in the block outside of the main house. The room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was also quite large. Outside on the patio we had a table and chairs where Sona...

Room and bathroom were large, quite, cool and clean with shared verandah to sit out on. Breakfast was good and included in the price. Wi Fi is available in certain locations. Only 5 mins autorickshaw ride from town centre and river. We went on a 3 hr boat trip (organised through Joseph) - seemed expensive compared with trip we did...

Sona is a 10 min drive out of town and a 10 min walk to where you can hop on a boat. The room was large, comfortable and clean with your own table out on the veranda. Joseph was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is delicious! And they can order in take-away for you if you don't want to...

“The chalets opposite the main house look more private and have their own little balconies. The rooms in main house also have balconies but the one by the main door is a bit less private so try and get one of the others.”
