I came for a few days and ended up staying two weeks. Spotless, friendly budget place, I am sure by far the best value on the clifftop. Room was charming, Lovely and her sister arranged pre-Xmas Keralan dinner on banana leaves with their mother for a few lucky guests, which was unforgettable. There's a great ayurvedic treatment centre next door...

“Shower water is cold. But if you wait until the end of the day, the water is warmer by the sun. Most people staying in Varkala head to the beach straight away in the morning anyway or aruyvedic treatments, so the shower isn't too much of a biggy, most home-stays don't have hot water. All part of the Indian experience - and the air temperature is warm anyway.”
