On Aug 15th morning we started from Kochi to Alleppy, Homestay Villa(Rice Villa), Nedumudi Bridge. We reached at 12.15 hrs and the owner was waiting for us. He arranged a boat from the Jetty to reach the Villa. Very beautiful place for a home stay. The building was built by royal woods, and doors with Chitra ppoottu. We enjoyed 2 nights there and returned to Kochi on 17th Noon. To reach the place easy way is call Mr.Boben from Alleppy Boat Jetty or Railway station/Bus stand. If from Railwaystation take one taxi to Alappuzha Boat jetty and get Boat to Chaturthyathi stop. Emerald and Rice Villa are very near the Vayanashala Boat Jetty.
