Alleppey houseboats

Are any good houseboat deals available in the last week of September? From what I have seen on the Internet, the houseboats seem a tad expensive, but since that period is off-season I am hoping I will be able to get a better deal offline. Any views on this? I am planning for 2 adults and a 3-year old child for a single night only.

I've booked a night on a one-bed houseboat in Alleppey, Kerala and now having a last minute panic . . . it seems to be a reputable company judging by TripAdvisor reviews - but can I trust I'll be safe overnight with an all male crew?

I am going to book for 1 night stay in a house boat Oct end. I read few reviews where the travelers have written about the issue of mosquitoes and insects and suggested to go for a fully covered / air conditioned house boat. However I feel that this will take away the charm of authentic house boat experience. I have a child and therefore will also not like to be disturbed by insects and mosquitoes. Request your suggestion/ feedback on which type of house boat to opt for.

Thanks,

Abhishek

You could do a day cruise instead of overnight stay.

But I see that charges for day cruises are almost same as overnight stay. Any pointers?
