“Awesome homestay and houseboat stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Awesome !! Awesome!! Awesome!! My family stayed for 2 nights in homestay and 1 whole day stay in the houseboat. My family felt the warmth and a perfect homestay. Mr. Santosh has provided top-class services with a personal touch. The food was awesome and wholesome, non-oily. And the houseboat experience is par excellent and a surprise package of Kerala trip.. Very clean, neat and new houseboat!!. A fabulous tour around Alleppey with tasty food all along!! Mr. Santosh and family made Alleppey stay very comfortable and most memorable.

I travelled to Alleppey with my family and stayed 2 days. It is wonderful experience. They helped us to get good houseboat and comfort accommodation in the room.
Santhosh and his family were very friendly and provided us with information on the attractions to visit in our short time in Alleppey including the beach and local marketplace.

I would definitely recommend anyone who visits Kerala to stay at this home-stay.

Its very good opportunity to stay at Gokulam home stay for two days. He had taken very good care for the us, because the town is very new but he helped a lot. He explained which are all the attractions where to eat, which is the best restaurent and which is their special everything he clearly instructed. We stayed his home only and he never treated us as stranger....not only him the whole family of Mr. Santhosh. I thank tripadvisor to gave me a friend in aleppy. If you want home stay in aleppy.......this is the best. The food which he served us during the stay is awesome. Mr. Santhosh only arranged us a House boat which is very nice and he keep on calling to the boat Sailer and checking with them the guests are safe, what they feel. He is the real care taker of the guests. I strongly recommend this home stay is the best ever i stayed at affordable cost.

I travelled to Alleppey with my friends during the holidays. The homestay was spacious enough to accommodate all of us comfortably. We had access to well maintained facilities, extra mattresses upon request and delicious food in the homestay itself which was a bonus.
Santhosh and his family were very friendly and provided us with information on the attractions to visit in our short time in Alleppey including the beach and local marketplace.

I would definitely recommend anyone who visits Kerala to stay at this homestay.

Mr Santhosh and Family were very accommodating, helpful and welcoming. We loved this place. We stayed with our 2 kids for 2 days from July 31 to Aug 2.
They are very helpful in organising boathouse tour.
This place is close to railway station and beach. clean room and homely atmosphere. Our Kids have played with there kid Adithya and enjoyed the stay to a extent that they were not ready to come back.
Mr. Santhosh is very nice person n very friendly.They have treated us more than relatives. We have got a good family friends. We would love to visit Again.
