We had three nights here in Jan and slowed right down to match the laid back atmosphere. Right beside a lovely river and at the back of the villa, an excellent sunrise over the rice padi fields. It's about an 800 metre walk along the water to the small village of Nedemundi where there is a small market and you get the ferry to Alleppey town. Alleppey town wasn't worth the trip but you have to go there for changing foreign monies, and maybe if you need some shopping at the supermarket or to eat out. The home cooking at Pamba was very good. We had breakfast and lunch out on the grounds and dinner was served in a room in the old building. We recommend that Rajeev have a refrigerator out there for guests to have a cold drink in the evening, especially after a few hours in the houseboat! We had not and still have not heard any good reviews about staying the night on a houseboat, and found that three hours tootling around was enough. Much nicer to stay on the riverbank and watch the world go by, laying in a hammock. Rajeev was very amenable and personable and enjoyed talking to his guests and driving to some sightseeing spots.
