We stayed at this lovely gem located in a quiet street in Alleppey for four nights , our first in India.
Motty , the host welcomed us like an old friend .
This home stay was spotlessly clean and magnificent with large verandas and antique furniture.
The tropical lush garden is perfect and sitting on the private veranda you could bird watch for hours!
We were spoiled with attention that was always friendly and never intrusive.
At breakfast we had Keralan breakfast!! We really felt we were in the real India but without the chaos and noise. The food was delicious and Lali's cooking demonstrations were an eye-opener to the way spices are used!
We enjoyed walking the canals and on the beach. The Mullackal Street was interesting. All the Spices one could think of was there on the streets, magnificent temples and row after row of gold shops!!
We are sorry for charming but dilapidated buildings on the commercial canal. We hope these beautiful buildings will be saved.
Everything is wonderful here! In addition to the stay, Motty was great organizing our trip around Kerala including transport. He booked rooms in Cochin, Munnar, Periyar and Varkala and all at special prices.
We did well to have made Motty's Home stay our first halt in India.
I highly recommend Motty’s Home if you want a special flavor of Kerala and its hospitality.More
