We have stayed with Bijou at Bella for 7 nights. Bella homestay is away from the main busy area but within easy walking distance. The welcome you receive at Bella is second to none. The breakfast is good every day and Bijou the owner is very accommodating. Bijou arranged a canoe trip to the backwaters which I would highly recommend...

Bijou and his wife are friendly and hospitable people. The room was absolutely clean, cosy and calm. The home stay is situated in a really quiet, green area, but it's still close to town. The continental breakfast at 8.a.m was always really nice. The Wi-Fi connection, compared to other places in India, is bad. The backwater village canoe trip was...

After a bus trip from Kochi dropped us in the centre of Allepey, we began to wonder if we had made the right decision. Everything was a bit chaotic and noisy. We needn't of worried, a quick rickshaw ride deposited us outside Biju's little bit of paradise. A warm welcome which included a glass of fresh pineapple juice, and very...

Thank you so much to Biju and Jackie for being brilliant hosts! Everything was perfect, the nicest place we stayed in India! The food was great and the rooms were so lovely. Jackie, the pug, is certainly the cutest pug I've ever met too. You should definitely try the canoe trip in the backwaters that Biju recommends - it was...

Bella's Guest House is a joy to stay in. We came here for two nights after our houseboat trip and really enjoyed our stay. From the second you walk in, you are made to feel at home by Biju, with a nice cool welcome drink and his stories and friendly smile. The place itself is beautiful and the rooms decorated...

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful house in Alleppey. This home stay is located right in the heart of the city. A beautifully and carefully decorated home, it was! The owner of the place Biju took care of all our needs. As soon as we reached the place, he provided us with city maps and suggested plans for...

In May 2015 (monsoon period) I went to Kerala for the ayurvedic treatments and that is how I arrived at Bella. This year in October I stayed there for another week and Biju and Natasha are the most warm and generous hosts I have ever met ! The rooms upstairs are very comfortable and good size, the place is very...

Have just returned home after my stay at Bella with Biju. Unfortunately for me I'd contracted a fever just before arriving at the homestay, thought I'd shaken it off! My illness required me to see a doctor and a whole lot of rest and healthy eating. Due to the circumstances Biju took me under his wing and made sure I...

Biju and Jack the Pug make every effort to make you feel at home at Bella. Bella is really close to the moorings for the Allepey Houseboats - a trip which you must undertake if you are in the area. Biju organised our trip on the water in advance. He also arranged for us to spend a few hours travelling...

Our host biju, well what can I say, he is excellent at making you feel welcome, nothing too much trouble. The house was gorgoeus, very arty and calm and modern set in the midst of a very pretty leafy garden. Very quiet area. A must for staying in alleppey!
