We stayed in Cherukara Nest for one night before heading out on a houseboat. Our room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom needed some updating but it was functional. The owner Tony was very friendly and kindly arranged a houseboat for us. He can offer budget options at around 8,500 rupees for 4 people but we asked for a premium houseboat and he put is in touch with a company who offered houseboats around the 11,00 rupees mark. The houseboat itself was excellent. The homestay is in a good location- nearby to all the houseboats. Breakfast was included within the price and very tasty. Tony also offered a laundry service at the very reasonable price of 20 rupees per item.
We were 5 friends and we stayed at Cherukara Nest for two nights. We really enjoyed our stay! Tony is a nice host, he organised for us a tour in the backwaters - with Oscar cruises, we recommend! The rooms were big, clean and tidy - a little noisy but we are in India :) . The breakfast was really good. And Tony's house is really beautiful!
We had an air con room, very spacious and with a number of interesting features such as beams and ornate doors. The bathroom was huge, slightly scruffy (e.g. cracked basin) but it is an old property. The size and quietness of the room more than made up for this. Tony booked a canoe tour for us which was a very enjoyable way of seeing the backwaters. There isn't always someone instantly available at Cherukara but as it is a homestay rather than a fully staffed hotel it was no problem waiting a few minutes for Tony (who I think is a busy man!) Breakfast was good, on one of the tables in the indoor courtyard The garden itself is lovely at the front.
Was once a grand residence, but now no pride in its maintainance The grounds in particular were poor. The room was OK, with air conditioning, level of cleanliness was average. No WiFi available. It is close to the boat pier which is handy. Overall, it should be half the price.
Stayed for one night in January 2018 then moved to another place. Rooms are OK, but front rooms quite noisy from the road from about 6am. Not really a homestay as family lives elsewhere. Main complaint was the very poor canoe trip sold by the homestay. Rs 900 per person for full day, but itinerary was not accurately explained. We were led to believe that it was a private canoe tour, i.e. just your canoe for 4 people, which would include a village walk to see local crafts/activities. When we got to the ferry point we joined an army of other Europeans all catching the same ferry and doing the same canoe tour in a huge group. In order to get to the backwaters, a large amount of the day was spent on the lake and the backwaters themselves were not particularly interesting and polluted with plastic. Almost 3 hours of the tour were spent in a restaurant for breakfast and lunch – plus another half hour chai stop. Far too long. The promised village tour was a 20 minute hike through harvested paddy fields in order to get the ferry, as we had to leave from a distant ferry point. On the whole, we felt very uncomfortable – packaged tourism for Europeans at its worst. The only good thing was the great young guy who paddled our canoe and was a mine of information. Forget Alleppey - nice enough town if you get away from the water front, but sadly the town has been destroyed by tourism, out of control houseboat business and general pollution of waterways. There are lots of other unspoiled backwaters to explore - why go here?…
