    Hi there!
    I have stayed with my husband in a houseboat in Alleppey last January. It was just wonderful. We are also vegetarians and don't eat chili, onions or garlic either. The houseboat crew was wonderful, cooked separately vegetarian delicious food for us and we did not have any issue with that!
    It didn't smell at all of any fish!
    So enjoy your trip, it is great!

    According to the law the travelling time using houseboat is limited to 10 AM to 5 PM ,so after that you cant travel using houseboat .Normally houseboat people will tied up this boat on some of the shores .Might be some security issue is there too as you are staying some remote jetty . It is better to find out some resorts or home stay near to the lake side is the best way .
