Great value homestay in Alleppey

In the Thatampally district of Alleppey town itself, this homestay is an elegant house in a leafy residential street. It is just 5 minutes walk from a canal where houseboats cruise sail through the backwaters. Mr. and Mrs. Vinod are the hosts, who live with their two children and grandparents in this house. They are a charming traditional family who enjoy going to Alleppey's long white sand beach (2km away), watching Hindi films together and playing badminton. The family goes back 5 generations in Alleppey and are the perfect guides for a visitor wanting to do more than just the tourist trails; they can give an insight into the city from a local's point of view.

Moreover, this is the true experience of living with an Indian family as the guests occupy comfortably furnished rooms in the house itself. This gives the stay an informal aura as you can really get to know the family, whilst enjoying as much privacy as you like. Mrs. Vinod is a dietician, so expect wonderfully nutritious Indian food; her star dish is the roast duck. There is a sports ground just around the corner where guests can play badminton, basketball and tennis. Also, the family are keen to show their guests local walks or cycle rides around the town; they can even take them to some shops where they can get good bargains. This homestay is a great stepping off point to explore beautiful backwaters of Alleppey and staying with the Vinods' greatly enhances charm of the place.

It was pricey as compared to amenities/food provided for B/F. Enough beddings were not provided/available for 4 members. This was the basic need for any Homestay facility. Pl. look into what B/F menu is provided, it was only omelet & no jam, other items available . As well Tea was served same time around when omelet was served. And the children around the place were too noisy disturbing the quiet surroundings..Basics need to be looked into as I have booked another group in last month of November at the sme place.
