I stayed with my family in Feb 2011 for a night. This home stay apartment is very close to KSRTC bus stand and the Boat Jetty from where the boats are starting for crise. The room was spaciaous enough and clean. Mr. Mathew and his family manage themselves and take care of the needs with personal touch.
Kerala Gods own country- says the television promotion message. Yes? No? I dont know! But I decided to find out in my own way. When? It happened in the month of August when I was planning a vacation for my husband and me. The bookings took no time thanks to my friends:). We decided to go to Alleppey to explore the famous backwaters. So, here I am just reached the homestay Venice Castle. The weather is pleasant and I receive a warm welcome by Matthew whose face Ive just related to his comforting voice I heard during our conversations. We are busy recovering from all the â€œmissed sleepâ€ most of the morning. Lunchtime we decide to spend the afternoon having lunch by the Alleppey beach. Matthews got it all. He promptly summons our autowalla friend Afzal who drops us to the Harbour Restaurant. Here the â€œKerala fish curries saga begins and how! Satiating our pallettes with the harmonious mix of spices and fish is an experience we cant get enough of! Tummies and tongues pleased, we head to the beach for a walk in the drizzle. The sounds of waves and sand are akin to music so I am keen to walk by the waters holding hands and feeling the breeze on my skin. Its the houseboat day next morning. Omce again Matthew arranges our "water abode" for a day I am as apprehensive as excitedâ€¦we step into the houseboat, provided by Ben Holidays, and meet our friends for the next 24 hours our chef and our travel guide. Both smile and greet us as we enter and show us our single-bedroom houseboat neatly arranged for its guests. The ride begins into the waters lined with coconut groves. There are several of us in boats of different sizes Some in groups, others with their special one. My husband gets his treat some perfect camera shots are taken during our journey. I am happy to see him do well! Another traditional lunch awaits perfectly garnished and arranged for its guests. Yummmm we gorge beyond our appetites yet again! The evening showers render freshness to the vast paddy fields encircled by the coconut groves our eyes devour all the scenic beauty amidst the conversations that kick in thereof. It is a day which gets etched in our memories for ever. We decide to look around Alleppey and Cochin on the last two days. Both are resplendent with the colours of Onam. We visit temples, museums, and the small-scale industries of the state ably guided by Afzal. Every state in India has its own story to tell so does Kerela. I am reminded of my Geography lessons yet again. What stands out though is the Marari beach in Alleppey and the Seagull restaurant in Cochin. The Marari beach amongst all the beaches I have explored so far this was the noisiest and angriest. The potent waves dashing at the shores lapping them with surf was a sight so unique, that it took time to sink in. Such are the fierce waters whove consumed the homes and lives of many and these are the same waters that soothe our senses....oh the unfathomed powers! Before I know we are waiting for our bus back to Bangalore. Sigh! Kerala - I would love to meet you again and know more of you - my thoughts as I say goodbye from my window seat.
I wanted a trip which will allow me to unwind myself with nature, laid back and slow. And if your trip begins with an out-of-the-world hospitality, you know you have set the tone for an amazing outing. Venice Castle Home stay exactly provides you this. The hospitality (which begins with a welcome drink) has well and truly exceeded my expectation. Staying here, you will never feel out of home. Alleppey is a small city and I can assure you, you will miss the personal touch of family members if you choose to stay anywhere else. And trust Mr. Matthew (owner) and Mr. Thomas for anything which you need at the 11th hour, he has got contacts from cabs, boat rides, massage parlor to the best non veg restaurant, he has all. The breakfast offered was EXCEPTIONAL..right from local Kerala dishes to suit your desi palette to bread butter jam and egg for the overseas traveller. The room is spacious and clean with hot water availability 24 hrs. I recommend every traveler to experience this home stay at Alleppey. I have stayed here on 22nd Dec.
