I'm very jealous! We went on a Kerala houseboat eight years ago on our last trip to India, it was fantastic as was the rest of Kerala. We also liked a Munar which is a little hill station surrounded by tea plantations, some 3 hours away from Cochin.
The houseboat itself we booked through our hotel in Allepey. After Allepey we had a couple of nights at the Taj Garden Retreat on Lake Vambernand which was also v.nice.
Hope you manage to get something sorted.

My advice is to get one with an engine, I was 7 months pregnant when we went and I roasted. Whilst we were in Kerala we stayed in a Maharajs hunting lodge in Periyar national parks which I couldn't recommend highly enough. It's really cosy and often has more staff than guests which means you get totally spoilt has wonderful gardens and you can sit on your verandah, drinking tea and watching the elephants. I'd love to go again but it's expensive.
