Hi, I am Johnson Gilbert. I converted my home into one of the pioneer, premier Alleppey homestays. 'Johnson's' is listed in International guidebooks and is now well established among the top Kerala home stays.
I understood that the main reason tourists visit Alleppey/ Alappuzha is for the backwaters and for beach stays. We are fortunate that we can satisfy both the needs to our guests as I have a houseboat, offer cheaper interactive canoe tours, and our guesthouse is close to the town beach.
Other than the backwaters, we also arrange visits to the Secret beach and the Snake temple in Alleppey. It gives further impetus for my guests to spend more time in Alleppey.
Since the last 10 years, we conduct a special event for our guests to watch the Kerala snake boat race. It’s getting bigger every year.
There's an Ayurveda massage parlour a minute's walk from our homestay and we offer for our lady guests an inhouse beautician.
We have a free pick up service for our guests on arrival in Alleppey. And you can pay for any service here with your credit card as we have a swipe machine.
