It is peaceful, secluded with beautiful views of the lake(we even swam it!) The food was home cooked and some of the best we came across-evidence of the great reputation of Keralan food. The...

Stayed at the home stay for two wonderful nights. The rooms are situated in an old quaint farmhouse that has been restored. The bathroom has to be the best I have used in India. Our room over looked the lake and the gardens of the grounds so peaceful. Breakfast came with the room rate and lunch and dinner are available...

Had a lovely room facing the lake. The private balcony and the beautifully kept tropical garden added to the lovely experience of this peaceful and tranquil old heritage property. Stayed here a couple of days before heading to Alleppey to spend a couple of nights on board one of the houseboats. Definitely worth a stop. The rooms are Spartan but...

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at Vembanad House in January. We opted not to do a houseboat stay and were very glad that we stayed at Vembanad, which is located on a small backwater canal in a small community about 12 kms from Allepey. The house is only accessible by boat (about a 10 minute ride from the roadhead)....
