About

Our houseboat is traditionally, the houseboat was called Kettuvallam, which means a boat made by tying together pieces of wood. Unbelievable as it may sound, not a single nail is used in the making of a Kettuvallam. Jack wood planks are joined together with coir rope and then coated with black resin made from boiled cashew nut shells. The materials that go into the making are all local and Eco friendly bamboo poles, coconut fiber ropes, bamboo mats, coir carpets etc These traditional country boats were used as the mode of transport in the early times from the isolated interior villages to the towns. But these boat services have been laid off with the developments taken place in the transport services in the recent past. Today these giant 80-foot long crafts have been adapted into luxuriously furnished houseboats. A Kettuvallam usually has one or two bath attached rooms, an open lounge, deck, kitchenette and a crew comprising two oarsmen and a cook. Traditional lanterns are used as lights. Your holiday in this tranquil world is the comfortably furnished houseboats. Come, check into a houseboat for a memorable cruise along the backwaters of Kerala.

We had a great time. The host was very much friendly and the food provided was also very delicious. All the amenities were provided. I would like to suggest to mention the timings of the activities and the sailing time and when the boat would be stationary because I reached late at the boat and I missed the sailing part it would have been great if I would have been aware about it being my first houseboat experience. But yes, we did went for a short cruise trip. I am happy with the services of Guesthouser!

We had a less than great experience on this houseboat. The houseboat was very congested and they did not provide a complete tour of this place. They have taken us to village which was included in the package, a round of the lake and back to the place. The host did not provide us anything. I will not recommend this property to anyone. However, Guesthouser services were good, booking was easy.

My experience with the boat was not that great however guesthouser did a good job. I did not like the way the boat owner functioned and the food etc. I had to call guesthouser for most of the challenges i was facing but once i got in touch with them most of them were taken care off.

It was an amazing experience during the stay in boat house. Staff were very friendly and served good food for us. But we missed the Nehru trophy boat race as we couldn't able to communicate properly about that due to language barrier.

Our stay on this houseboat was a rather pleasant one! The views were fantastic and there was a serene ambience in the midst of the backwaters. Thanks to Guesthouser, we were able to experience such a unique accommodation!

We had a really great time here and the property was awesome. The staff and the customer support were very helpful with all the arrangements. It was literally home away from home, with the caring host and freedom.

Our stay was good. We loved the location in particular and had an awesome time. Booking with GH has been so much more convenient than any other option we have tried so far. We will do it again.

Really nice experience but when you're looking for some calm hours, this is the wrong place. There are to many of the boats.
