We were quite happy with our stay here which was comfortable. First of all, getting to the home stay is as easy as getting to any other place from there. The first thing I noticed was the small pookalam, quite welcoming! We stayed in the room on the ground floor, quite clean, without frills, but sufficient. The sit-out upstairs was great and so were the bamboo rooms that are quite cheap to rent! The hosts were very nice, even accommodated us for a few more hours after the checkout time since our train was much later in the evening.
We're sure to stay here if we come back to alleppey and recommend it to all!

Room Tip: The pukka rooms downstairs are probably better. But take the bamboo rooms upstairs if you're loo...

We enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and clean. The food we ate at the home stay was delicious. It is centrally located for walking around town. The owners gave helpful tips for places to go for food, sightseeing and even making an urgent international call. Very good value for money!

Beautiful, centrally located homestay in houseboat optic. Chillout area on the relaxing rooftop terasse. Everything was clean and the owners are so nice and attentive.
Moskito net covers the comfotable bed.
But don't let the street side look make your decision.

Thank again Trip Advisor for recommending this fantastic Homestay. This is my third visit during my 1 month stay in South India. The owners, Uma and Subhash are very special people. Everyone that I have spoken to here (guests) say the same thing, so it' snot just me that thinks this.
Uma, works very hard to maintain the standards in the Homestay. She is also an excellent cook. Nicer people you could not find anywhere in the world. This is not the first time I have said about the people of Kerela, but it would only be fair to mark this place as exceptional. Subhash also runs a taxi company and 2 immaculate Houseboats, he rents them for a very fair price. As a lone traveller, I was very pleased to have free wi-fi too.
I am so grateful to have had the pleasure of staying here with them. At the moment they are building 3 new rooms which will have up to date facilities. They also plan to upgrade the existing bathrooms with the introduction of continuous hot water.
Best place to stay in Allepey!!!

During our time at Ashtamudi we found ourselves right at home. The owners arranged a kayak trip in the backwaters and also suggested an excellent restaurant to have dinner. The room was lovely and food served was delicious. In the morning I sampled a South Indian typical breakfast of appam, egg and curry which was home made and yummy! Definitely good value for money. Book in!

bamboo rooms are nice to stay..at a reasonable price. food is good and tasty. Centrally located. Only problem I found was the way to the place is very narrow so that two vehicles cannot pass simultaneously.
