Of course this depends on you, but if you wish to meet locals and to travel like a local don't hesitate to take a public boat. They go everywhere and are frequent. I arrived in Kottayam by train, and from there I took public boat to Alappuzha. I was informed this is the most popular route for backwaters and, in fact, I was not disappointed. The weather wasn't good, but I enjoyed a lot the trip. By the way, I wasn't the only foreigner aboard!
Otherwise, if you wish to rent a house boat, save money renting it locally, instead of booking through the internet. You can negociate fares at travel agencies, but it isn't rare to find locals offering their own boats.
