Chakochan,Elsa,Ance,their parents,Esa,Vakachan,Merry Kutty,Tommachan,Kurrialachan were going about their daily lives as usual. Enter 5 of us from varying age groups starting from 5 months to 70 Years boom to disrupt this quaint lives of theirs. They accept us with whole humility and integrate us in their lives seamlessly and we were part of their family and lived their lives for 5 whole days. It was a fantastic experience from the hustle and bustle of our lives,Enjoying sumptuous "nadan"(Local) food much different from the trash we eat daily at Chennai. Sindu deserves a special mention here and we thank her for the delicious food. We mostly ate and slept sticking to our agenda of doing nothing interrupted by boat rides,paddy field trips,Fishing and simplying lying around doing nothing. My son enjoyed his time with Elsa/Merrykutty/tommachan/Kurialachan and Esa jumping off mango trees bathing in the backwaters fishing and simply playing,a gr8 relief from being locked down with gadgets. Mornings greeted by sound of birds flowing water passing boats and distant hymns from temples which was missed since a long time returned back to our lives. Collecting mangoes fallen from trees plucking wild jacks was fantastic Nostalgia. All in all a great package living a different life in 5 days,All this after 1 year of lockdown was a gr8 break. thank you Chakochan and family for a fantastic time.…
If you are tired of the fast paced and hectic life, I strongly recommend Kurialacherry House. Lush green paddy fields, a small fish farm on one side and a river facing front make the backdrop of this guest house. Its a blend of serenity tranquility and peace. Mr. Chackochan and his beautiful wife,Mrs. Elizabeth the owners, were the perfect hosts. My family and my brothers family spent some quality time. The children had a fabulous time. Excellent food and beautifully maintained cottages add to the charm. The open shower was a unique experience. A totally detoxifying effect. Hope to come back soon
Our family of 10 went to Kurialacherry Homestay on 19th dec. We spent two days and a night. We had a wonderful time. The handsome and courteous Mr Chackochan and his beautiful wife, Mrs Elizabeth were the perfect hosts. The children had a splendid time. The food was excellent and the rooms were well maintained. We had a great and peaceful time.
We stayed in the Kurialacherry guesthouse in Feb 2020 for two nights. Our room was very spaceous and well equipped with an nice open air bathroom. the service and the food was very good. We enjoyed a number of activities during our stay like early morning kajaking, village walk, school visit (that was fun for everyone), and night fishing. Also we were invited by Jacobs team to attend the cooking of our dinner in the house kitchen. The Kurialacherry house is a beautiful property, quite remote on the riverside. We definitely recommend!
We stopped during our backwater tour at this so beautiful location directly waterside. The manager Jakob showed us the farm. Some local people showed how harvesting coconut, how using the palms. Very interesting and authentic. Afterwards we got a very delicious homemade lunch served on Bananaleaves Absolutely worth to stay here The rooms are also nice
