A Lovely beach and beautiful sunsets

The 18 km long Cherai Beach is the one of the most popular beaches of Ernakulam district aka Kochi city. The beach is shallow and ideal for swimming and sunbathing except for the monsoon season(July-Sep), the sunsets are vivid and a sight in itself, dolphins are also seen regularly. Unique to Cherai the neighbourhood has narrow roads, lagoons and the world famous kerala backwaters. We are located just 500m from the main beach promenade with a large number of cafes, restaurants and beach activities.

Our Villa features all modern amenities one would expect, a large living room with comfortable seating, a fully equipped open kitchen with fridge, microwave, filtered water and all necessary cutlery and crockery. A dining space for 8 and 2 large balconies with plush seating arrangements. 5 air-conditioned bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. Our master bedroom offers the best lookout on the entire beach. The villa also has a large open garden area for kids play time or even to host a small ceremony.

Food and dinning options

FYI

Our villa is about 30 kilometres away from Kochi city and takes about an hour to reach. From Grand Hyatt Bolgatty take Goshree bridges towards Vypeen. At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto Pallipuram Rd.. Straight 30km drive to Cherai town follow directions to the beach at the main beach promenade take the turn towards Munambam and head around 900m-1km we are on the beach-ward side.

The beach house is almost 20 years old and i have been renting it on/off for 5 years now. My caretaker can understand English but is much more comfortable in our local language if you have any communication issues i will be available to resolve it as soon as possible.

We try our very best to keep the villa spick and span but we are at a constant battle with the beach, we constantly struggle with electronic device damages due to its direct exposure to salty beach air, our A/C's, TVs, Refrigerators are replaced almost every other year.

Power back-up

We have a diesel generator that powers all fans and lights upto 8 hrs, A/C's do not have power back up at this moment. Generally we do not face any electrical cuts in Cherai.

Hi greetings from "Gods own country", my name is Swahel K George, i am a businessman presently based in Kochi, Kerala. We have been hosting our close friends and family from all across at our villa in cherai for the last 15 years, after our recent renovations in 2015 we decided to open up our home to outside guests. Like everyone else the pandemic has had a devastating impact on our business with long closures and lockdowns, sadly our popular hostel "happy camper" in fort kochi is permanently closed. My family still owns and operates one of the oldest hotels in Munnar (a hill station in Kerala) and i have always had great interests in hosting, food and travelling. I along with my team would do our very best to make your stay at our villa as comfortable and memorable as possible.
