We rented this as its Govt approved and very reasonable price. This is an ideal vacation home for the family. The pricing is very reasonable. We rented the whole property – two double bedrooms. A big hall/dining room which was spacious, airy and clean, made us feel at home. The kitchen was spacious and fully equipped. We prepared our evening meals and used the lovely patio to eat our dinners. The patio is just outside the kitchen. Spacious enough for four adults to lounge there. We had four chairs and a coffee table in the patio. Variety of birdlife visited during daytime. Some lazy afternoons we sat for a couple of hours listening to the natural birdsongs.

The property is spacious. Surrounded by a lovely garden. The garden is well kept and has lovely pots, flowers, and a couple of trees. It is very relaxing to just sit in the garden and enjoy the sea breeze in the evenings. At one corner is a tiny pond with water lily. Apart from crows, cuckoos etc, one day we even sighted an eagle washing itself in the pond.

This Government approved homestay is ideal for us travelling from Europe. We felt at home from the very first day. Filtered drinking water was provided, so there was no need to go out and buy water. Linen & towels were clean and almost new. Free Wi-Fi. Not only did we check our mail in our phones, we also used laptop and ipad. The bathrooms are clean and with ample hot water with solar heater. When there was a power cut, the inverter kicked in. The bedrooms have nets on the windows. Unlike mosquito nets on the bed which can be cumbersome, this was perfect. We could keep the windows open. No stray insects wandering in. Kitchen fully equipped for cooking. The fridge is very useful.

The owner Mr.Jayaprakash is very helpful. He arranged for pickup at the airport. At our request, he arranged for us to have an Ayurvedic treatment. Also, he arranged a taxi for us when we needed. We were able to call him to clarify anything as and when we needed. He arranged for our departure (at midnight) – both porters and taxi. Promptly arriving well in time, supervised our smooth departure and seeing us off at the airport. We couldn’t ask for anything more. To sum it up, perfect.
