Venice castle is a home stay in Alleppey. It is in the centre of the city. It is well maintained, rooms are air conditioned. Home made food is available on request. Owner is kind enough to give information about places, restaurants, transportation, etc. Price is also affordable. Overall, it was a homely & memorable stay.

It was both official and relaxation trip with the family. The hotel was situated at a convenient place and the appearance of the hotel both exterior and interior was excellent. I had no problem during check in and checkout. The service of the hotel was quite good. The staffs were helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious, neat and clean. The pillows, blankets, bed sheets all were in good condition. All the basic amenities were in working condition. The provided only breakfast from this hotel and it was nice. There were no activities provided. They organized sightseeing trip and it was very comfortable. I would recommend to other travellers.

This is excellent property 6 years old though maintained very well and give you fill as good as newly built. The Rooms are super clean and have minimum furniture required. Toilets and bathroom are very clean with all necessary things and good quality fittings (see photo's).
The location is very good well connected to main road still calm and peaceful. The Boat jetty & KSRTC Bus stand, market place are at walk able distance. The beach is 4km away by auto Rs. 60.

Mr. Matthew & Mr. Thomas are very kind and caring.
Mr. Thomas the man with smiling face. He is so kind and helpful that he took care of our every need during our stay. I would specially like to thanks Mr. Matthews Mother for her kindness and tasty breakfast.
He booked for us separate "Shikara boat" for lake tour (Rs. 1200/-)

Pros :- Hot Water, good south Indian breakfast, free Wi-Fi access. In room have AC & Cupboard.
Cons:- No place to dry your cloths inside room. have to dry @downstairs garden area. TV is very old with limited channels without remote operating.

We stayed for three nights and four days. Mr Mathew, our host was very cordial. He was very knowledgeable in the local affairs and arranged our one day back water cruise at good rates. He also gave us suggestions for the local restaurants. On expressing our interest in local Kerala food, he gave us dinner one evening, which was excellent and did not even charge for it. we enjoyed our stay in Alleppey very much.

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.

Excellent Home stay, Initially my husband was reluctant to stay in such place due to fear of safety issues, but after staying there he changed his attitude.

Best Experience: Typical Kerala home made food, with same love and affection like motherly affection.

Worst Experience: Nothing

This place belongs to Mr. Matthew Vazhappally who stays here along-with his family. The whole family is so courteous that you would feel a part of their family from the moment you set your foot in. The bungalow is also done very nicely and gives a feel that it is newly constructed. One of the good things is that the place is hardly 1 min walk from backwaters.

Kerala Gods own country-ť 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 “missed sleep” 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 “Kerala fish curriesť 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 excited…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 angriestť. 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.

Best Experience: -Stay in Venice Castle
-Houseboat experience
-Fooooooooood!!!!

Worst Experience: None
