Richad is a wonderful host, incredibly responsive, flexible, warm and attentive to our needs. My friend and I spent two nights on his boat and we truly enjoyed every moment of it. Service provided by his crew is outstanding. Overall experience was wonderful and I highly recommend it.
I stayed for more than a week in May. The house is lovely as was the weather. Very clean, air conditioned and good value for the type of accommodation. The town is a short walk away with shops, resturants and boat rides galore, also the bus station where you can get buses to Munnar, Kottoyam or Kummily or Amma's Ashram easily. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, I would definitely recommend the chocolate banana pancakes for breakfast! They even scanned me my passport late in the evening after I forgot it, and needed it for staying over a night in Munnar, and where caringly concerned about me when I stayed out late one evening. Rishad gave frank good advice about where was best to visit, how to get there, offered other services including a fantastic canoe tour around the backwaters in Alleppey etc which was very helpful during my stay, and was happy to accommodate me for an extra night discounted when I needed it. I would recommend this home stay for anyone who wants friendly, helpful hosts and a relaxing stay.
A very romantic 20 hours to relax and unwind. Good idea to take a bottle of beer or wine if you wish to imbibe, as there is none on board. Very plentiful meals and not too spicy. Lots of fruit. Cook and captain very eager to please. Nice to have a/c in the bedroom at night.
The backwaters houseboats are a wonderful way to relax, the staff of this boat were excellent, food was delicious and we had a very enjoyable stay, however at the prices being paid the boat was a little shabby and we have stayed in others that were much more luxurious for a lot less in the past .
The boat is beautiful (all of the 800 boats at Alleppay are roughly the same design) and the captain was great. I think it was probably more expensive than just finding one when we arrived but on the whole it was such a beautiful trip that it was good value anyway.
The boats all stop to buy seafood from a shop on the way, which is fun but the prices are high. We took a ride in a small boat but the rower was rude and didn't take us anywhere interesting - so i'd recommend being clear about what you're paying and where you're going before getting in the small boats..
We only have one word to describe the experience: AMAZING!!!
The Houseboat is as they mentioned on the add just LOVELY.
The staff are really friendly and helpful at any time.
Breath taking and so relaxing tour around the Backwaters, fantastic sunset from the roof top...it´s like a dream as its name "Dream Boat".
They also arranged the accomodation for the day after the tour and gave us good suggestions to eat & visit in Alleppey.
Ah! if you have time and little extra money just ask them to organize the special canoe trip to explore the small channels; It´s a WOOOW excursion!
Thank you guys for having us ON BOARD!
