This place was great. The room was really large and spacious. It was the only place I've stayed in India that had somewhere for me to hang my clothes and having lived out of a back pack for months this was a massive highlight for me! I stayed at the front of the guest house on the ground floor and...

I spent 24 nights at this attractive spacious house, near the clifftop path in Varkala. My room was large and bright, with wet-room, balcony and fan, the best bit being that the balcony had a hammock, in which i could relax with a lovely view of palm trees, birds and squirrels. The room rate was incredibly reasonable, which made it...

I came upon this charming guest house by pure accident whilst out searching for rare butterflies. I didn't find my elusive butterfly but nonetheless was delighted by the exterior of the property and even more delighted by the interior.
