It was really a great experience staying at serenity homestay. The rooms were neat and clean. The owner, Sudhakar, was very hospitable and helped us to communicate on times with the locals especially the cab drivers. The place is very close to the serenity beach and is at some distance from the noisy city side.

Its been more than 6 months since I had my vacation, but this place is so close to me that I definitely feel the need to write a review. Its an amazing place within walkable distance from the beach and the cafe is great as well. The staff are very professional and friendly.

If you are looking for professionalism, the best hospitality, friendless, nice atmosphere than this is the place - Serenity - Home Stay. This is a very unique kind of hotel run by a family who stays in ground floor (may be for time being) and have converted the others floors into a hotel. They also have a restaurant (cafe bar)...
