We stayed for 5 nights in early January. We loved our big room. The whole experience was very peaceful. The location is perfect. Away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip of Varkala, but near enough to stroll into the busy area in 10 minutes if you felt like it. Our days got into a bit of a...

The USP of this place is definitely the amazing view it offers. It is a bit difficult to reach here as the location shown in google maps is wrong, they should try to get this corrected. We stayed at standard room with balcony. This is a relatively small room with no sea view. Only the cottages have the beach view....

This was the 4th time I stayed here and I am happy it is still as good as it used to be. I cannot add to what I wrote before - I love the peace and quiet of this place and will always go there when I am in the south of India. I wish it was not so far...

This review is based on the communication I had with the owner wen I wanted to book his property. I was talking politely but he was unnecessarily rude n asking to pay the whole amount for a booking 1.5 months later. When I politely requested him for 50% advance he started abusing me saying he had permanent foreign guests and...

Close to the beach and with nice, small rooms, this place is more than worth the money. The Wifi is not great, but everything else is recommendable. Very nice garden with only 120 steps to the great and very clean beach.

Shine and his staff are kind, helpful and nothing is a difficulty. The garden is a place to relax and enjoy wonderful views ...occasionally Dolphins, fishermen , a beautiful slice of...

My partner and I had booked a sea-view room at this place on booking.com for 2 nights. We received an email from the owner Mr. Shine saying that as we are "Indians" we have to make the whole payment before arrival (while booking.com policy said pay at checkout). We asserted ourselves and said that we will only pay at check-out,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's a very beautiful piece of paradise. It's a guest house (I couldn't call it something so cold as a resort) that delivers excellent service with a low key spirit of wanting to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the higher-end suites are exceptionally lovely and all for prices that make this the very best value I have almost ever experienced in all my travels.
