It's a beautiful property tucked away on small road coming from the main city...very quiet and peaceful. The hospitality is amazing and feels like home staying with the family here. They have a beautiful little family and they really take good care of you. It is very clean...with good breakfast and is only 6km from Alleppey Beach.

I had visited aleppey on 13th july especially for a backwaters ride and was looking for a nice and cheap place to stay for one night. This place infact more than met our expectations.
Accomodation has one bedroom, living room with balcony and a bathroom. There is a lot of greenery around the stay which makes it refreshing and cool. Since the place is covered with dense forest and vegetation so there will insects but this is not really an issue. It was a home like environment overall. One word for eldos( owner)...he is very sincere and ensures a good stay.
Breakfast was covered in the package so you can enjoy atleast one of your meal..as there are hardly any good restaurant in this area...

Wonderful service and hospitality. Very clean rooms and excellent locality.
Eldhose and his brother, the care takers of this Homestay are friendly and very helpful.

The food was bit of a let down, not that it's bad.. May be a bit of choice. We are spoilt for excellent choice of restaurants at Bangalore ...

But overall we are very happy. Hope to visit and stay here again

It's not Sheraton obviously but it has everything that a good homestay needs. The rooms are big and clean, there is a balcony with a swinging chair and a proper breakfast.

The location is relaxed and quiet but as it is outside the city center it takes 5min / 30rupees ride to eat sth as there is only one basic restaurant nearby.

We booked our houseboat with them too and were Nottingham dissapointed. I can't compare to others ones but we were super charmed with the way it looked.

I 've mentioned the extra smile. It belong to the manager Eldhose baby. He was very friendly helpful and added a lot to the nice stay we had.

Good job

It's a great homestay, with very large and spacious rooms. The rooms on the first floor are better because then you have a nice balcony all to yourself. Amidst the homestay there is also a very beautiful garden, which is quiet nice. The hosts are also nice people. The Kerala breakfast, which is inclusive of the room cost, is yummy. Nova Homestay also provides Houseboats, but after having a look at their boats and some others, and doing the cost analysis, we went with someone else, which was also very good. So I guess in terms of Houseboats, it is good to explore a bit more options in order to get the best services and prices.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are better.
