2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Cherai Beach, Vypin Island, Kochi (Cochin), Ernakulam District, Kerala

We have recently refurbished the cottage. The decor is neutral and furnishing nothing far-fetched. The cottages have the feel of a middle class Indian family home located in the midst of a rural, traditional fisherman's village. It is a unpretentious cottage with all basic amenities and a cosy feel. This cottage is one of two on the beachfront (as seen in the photographs). This one has two bedrooms, one shared bathroom, living room, dining room and a kitchen. We can add extra beds in the living room and then this property sleeps 6 people in comfort.

Only breakfast is inclusive!! Our caretaker doubles as a cook.
If you would like Lunch and Dinner in traditional Kerala style then do let us know before arrival.

Wifi available for the use of our guests.

Breakfast Menu: Eggs, bread,...

About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is located on the beach itself. We are approximately 30 kms from Cochin International Airport and 12 kms from fort Cochin. We have a nice stretch of private beach in front of the property. Behind it is a small road and opposite it is the local church. Behind the local church or less than 200 meters away are the serene backwaters, swaying coconut lagoons, Chinese nets, lush green paddy fields. If you are looking to chill out, get away from the hectic city life and enjoy the experience of life in rural India then this is the correct choice.
There is a cool sea breeze so we do not need any air conditioners and fans suffice.
For transportation there is bus stop about a mile away and the caretaker will arrange for local transportation as and when required. Alternatively we can...
