Amazing experience at houseboat with lovely cordial staff. Home cooked fish tiger prawns and Kerala parantha by ramesh ji and a very friendly driver jomon Thomas. Mr Sree Kumar is a thorough gentleman and lived up to the ethos of being an ex serviceman

This was quite the experience in a very good way. Looks can be deceiving so initial comments are definitely not in order. 3 bedrooms for 3 couples. 3 staff to look after everything. Was great that we experienced this ! ! !

You surely will get more than you have demanded. Depending on your taste, dishes can be produced. "Karimeen" one of the specialities of this area are available on the house boat. A local house boat can also provide you with the home cooked like food from the fresh Crabs and Prawns you purchase.

We did a day cruise (5 hours) through Lakeview houseboats. We were 2 adults and 1 kid and this was our first houseboat experience. The beginning wasn't that good as we were told that our ride would be delayed by 30 mins. But then, they let us wait on one of their other docked boats. Then came the sweet surprise...

It was really good and had a wonderful time. In the evening, we were facing some power issues and some water issue. Except that all other things were well organized. Food also provided in time and was prepared as per our wish. Those two helpers were served us good.
