The Cherukara nest was everything we expected and more. Tony greeted us with the warmest smile even though it was late in the evening. We were given a choice of two rooms which was nice (no need to settle), both of which were very spacious and well furnished for the price. The entire space is incredibly clean and beautiful. We...

Lovely little homestay in Alleppey, very convenient for accessing the houseboats at finishing point. Tony is a fantastic host and makes you feel very welcome. Good rooms, air conditioning, solid breakfast. Very peaceful and also easy to find as close to the bus station (which all auto drivers know). Good wifi as well.

We stayed here twice at the beginning and end of our Keralan backwater adventure. This is a lovely homestay, clean and well equipped room, good value for money, and Tony was very helpful and friendly. It is in a convenient location very close to the bus terminal, ferry terminal and central bazaar but on a quieter backstreet. We highly recommend...

WE stayed in Cherukara Nest for one day in November 2015. The room rent was Rs 1000. I found that the room was good value for money as it was spacious with traditional touch and clean. The owner was helpful and he also arranged shikara ride for us. Only drawback was that the bedding was made of foam which was...

We'd booked a night in the house, a night on the houseboat, and another night in the house. But that all changed when we got on the boat. The house was charming. We took the cool dark aircon room on the rear courtyard. I asked about the bigger, brighter rooms at the front when I arrived but they were reserved....

Overall ok: basic accommodation and pleasant courtyard. We hired the owner's (Tony) houseboat for 2 days and paid upfront for the trip. Unfortunately the engine broke half way through day one and we were surprised by Tony's lack of concern that our two day trip was blighted. In the end we stayed at the Homestay another night and had just...

We spent a very romantic over night on one of the smaller house boats organized by the Cherukara Nest. The crew, chief, and captain were excellent and the trip through the backwaters of Alleppey was memorable. Highly recommend this to anyone traveling through Kerala.

We stayed here the night before taking Tony's houseboat for a couple days on a wonderful backwater cruise. The house is nice and the rooms are clean. The houseboat was really great! It's smaller and quieter than the diesel powered barges that dominate the backwaters, so you get a relaxed and peaceful trip. We took a two-day trip that included...

This colonial house is a lovely peaceful hotel with rooms set around a relaxing garden. Our room was spacious, clean and had really high ceilings.

“The rooms are made of a dark wood, so it's probably better to try and get one with bigger windows. There's one room with a loft inside - we didn't go in, but we spoke to the people in that room, and they were pretty impressed.”
