This is definitely an excellent place to stay in spite of the group you travel with. The food that they prepare is mouth-watering and the peaceful atmosphere with full of tress can give you a good peace of mind. Good place to stay away from the machinery city life.

“A secluded home-stay perfect for a getaway from city life with your close ones.”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The place is a bit off the highway in a village. It is picturesque and secluded - perfect for spending some alone time with you close ones. It has its own private 'beach' by the backwaters complete with hammocks for you to relax.

The caretakers were friendly and helpful. The local cuisine prepared by them was a good and yummy experience.

It is a refurbished old house and could help with some improved lighting. Overall it was a pleasant stay and would like to stay here again.

I spend a weekend with my friends at the homestay, more like a resort experience.It was so relaxing and really enjoyed the time with my friends.Their hospitality and willingness to provide us with quality service is top class.You get enough privacy at the place and backwaters close by is an attraction .I would definitely recommend Chekkal homestay to my friends and looking forward to visit again.

Chekkal homestay was marvellous with awesome scenic beauty that kept us stress free from our busy lives and gave us beautiful memories to cherish! A pond next to the home stay was really attracting and the backwaters close by was beautiful too! Beach about 100m away from the chekkal homestay was just amazing & breeze from the beach kept us cool from the scorching heat! Greenery around the resort was pretty soothing to the eyes! The stay was totally a different experience and unforgettable! We are feeling nature & beautiful locations.

"Tranquil and serene"...stepping onto paradise, the mere sight of the Tharavadu, the backwaters and it's surroundings were captivating. Nature at it's best. The hosts were warm and very welcoming. Food was excellent, they were variety of fish, chicken, meat, etc. Grilled beef steak in particular was beautifully cooked and complimented well with the whisky. A/c rooms were neat and comfy. A short walk away from the stay is the beach. Watching the waves and the sun setting in the background were breathtaking. We only wished we had stayed longer. Overall it was an awesome and memorable experience, will definitely be back on our next Indian visit. Highly recommendable. Thank you for the hospitality and see you again. Best wishes :)
