We had a great experience of the Homestay. Our hosts made our time at Oceana really special, they looked after us well and took care of all our needs. The food Mrs Kumar cooked for us was trully delicious! We felt part of the family. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the villa is located within lovely, enclosed grounds. Oceana is so close to the sea you can hear the waves crashing day and night. Combined with the rustling of palm leaves this created a beautiful music backdrop to our stay. Thank you!

“An Ocean Full of Comfort.”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

person found this review helpful

The last week of February 2017 in Kerala was already hotting up with an earlier than usual summer threatening the Indian subcontinent. Oceana Home Stay managed by Mr. Binod was the best choice I made for a non hotel stay in Kerala.

The property comprises of 2 large rooms fitted with air conditioners and rather large bathrooms and sit-outs done in a mix of modern tiling, fitments and the Keralan architecture style. One thing that you can always be assured in Kerala is cleanliness and hygiene. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable.

The most outstanding points about the property are the following -

1) The huge amount of space that is all yours to roam around in the property with a beautiful gazebo where the food is normally served.

2) The excellent breakfast that is served by Binod and his wife according to the levels of hotness that the guest prefers. Lunch and dinners are on call and the food is superb.

3) The proximity to the sea. It is just about 15 metres to the sea and the waves keep on crashing on the resolute rocks and keep a steady rhythm to lull you into sleep.

4) The rooms are immaculate and the service is wonderful.

That said it would be advisable to have a local conveyance like a car or a two wheeler for the guest to travel into town or the beach at Kovalam. Mind you that is the only place where you can swim and it is about 3-4 kms away and getting an auto or a Uber taxi can sometimes be a problem because of GPS issues. Best is to have Mr Binod in the loop as he is gracious enough to pick you up from the main road or get an auto, rental car etc for a trip into town or the beach.

Stayed there for two nights and loved the experience. Go there for a great experience in hospitality and goodness.

It is worthwhile to mention that Mr Binod went out of his way to recommend a Poovar backwater trip at a phenomenally cheap price compared to what is being charged by the operators there. Eternally grateful for this great and grand gesture.

This was the second time I stayed at Oceana this year and it was every bit as excellent as the first time. Mr. Binod and his wife go more than the proverbial extra mile to ensure the comfort of their customers. I would highly recommend this homestay.

A lovely little place that I have ever stayed at! The room was charming, clean, cozy, and had all basic amenities (minus a refrigerator). The food served was homemade, fresh, and very delicious. Totally recommend the seafood. Mr. Binod was very helpful from the stage of booking till leaving, and ensured a comfortable stay. Would recommend this to anyone going to Kovalam.

“Great homestay in perfect surroundings, with a very nice host”

Our family had a great holiday at Oceana Homestay during 10 days over New Year. We really enjoyed the clean and beautiful bungalow with breakfast in the pavilion among the coconut trees, set in the midst of an original fishing- and coconut-rope-making village. It's not far to Lighthouse Beach (10 min with a rickshaw), but it's really nice to have the opportunity to leave the commotion in the tourist area for some relax in the hammock with the comforting sound of ocean waves just some feet away.
And to make it perfect; if you have an interest in culture, philosophy, religion, geography, food or history - Binod is the perfect discussion partner during breakfast and tea breaks!
