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...

This homestay hotel sits on the banks of the Kerala backwater lake. It is beautiful with orchids in the garden, a hammock by the lakeside and lots of shady trees. The rooms are enormous, clean and each with their own verandas. Sandra and Bala, the hosts are so kind and friendly they make every effort to make one welcome and...

This is a homestay run by very warm and lovely couple. They had made all arranged for us from airport pickup to drop and sightseeing tour. We had the place to ourselves and the serene backwaters and quiet surroundings gave it a peaceful and cosy holiday. Food is excellent, do try the recommended dishes. The view is spectacular.

We stayed at the Vembanad House for 2 nights in April 2015. The property can easily be located on Google Maps even though it is a bit interior. But be ready to be AMAZED at the sight of the peaceful and clean Vembanad Lake right in front of the property. The property is owned by the very hospitable, knowlegeble and...

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)....

We expected a few days at Vembanad House to be a relaxing spell after a hectic 2 weeks in the Delhi-Agra-Rajasthan area, and that is exactly what it was. The other T.A. reviews describe it well. The charming and hospitable Sandhya and “her boys”, look after you very well. We particularly enjoyed her homestyle Kerala cooking, three meals per day....

I must say that i am glad i picked...

We stayed here for one night. Vembanad House is located on the shore of Lake Vembanad south of Cochin near Alleppey (Allappuzha) and is a lovely and stylish homestay with four rooms and an outdoor restaurant all on one level. The fixtures and fittings here are a cut above the usual Keralan homestay. There are hammocks on the lawn by...

This is a beautiful home and the owners and their son are charming people. We had excellent food, and plenty of it. During the day we lounged around, reading or looking out over the lake, watching birds...There is a lovely boat ride into the backwaters where everyone rushes out to wave and say hello.

Accommodation is in the charming old family house which is typical of Kerala. It is in its own grounds beside the backwater lake. These grounds are magnificent for idling the time away and you can be on your own despite other guests. There are plenty of places to sit and a hammock to lie in and just watch the lake...
