Johnson’s Homestay, a well-established guest-house is now in it’s 16th year. It is well-known and recognized as one of the premiere homestay/ guest house in Kerala.
Starting with two basic rooms, there are now three beautiful rooms en-suite, each with its own theme and character. Johnson’s features a beautiful garden with flowering jasmine, orchids, hibiscus and various fruit trees.
We are located a few minutes drive to Alleppey beach, Bus stand/boat jetty, Railway station & Town center.
This is probably our most popular room. The pinkish (cheesy?) colors, the bathtubs in the balcony, air conditioning, the fancy, ultra modern shower panel, soft matress - this is the ultimate romantic room for couples.
The room, balconey, common lounge areas, etc.
Interaction with guests
Oh yeah, come on down and we can talk.
Other things to note
We have pets. No free breakfast, discounts or other freebies.
No smoking inside the rooms. You can smoke in the spacious balconeys. Please do not hang washing on the balconeys. We provide clothes lines at the rear side of the house.
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.
