This cottage is great! Cool, clean, comfortable, and it’s got everything you need - including wifi, which worked better than ours at home in the UK! Angie and Den (the owners) and Kuinny (the manager) are fab: they’re all lovely and literally can’t do enough to help you and look after you during your stay. We definitely recommend hiring Kuinny...

We were here for 12 days at the end of a 17 day trip to Kerela in March. The cottage is in a great location, within walking distance of more than 1 beach and multiple restaurants for some really great food. If you don't fancy the walk then a couple of minutes in a tuk tuk is all it takes....

Been coming now for 7 years as a solo traveller. I love this cottage and the location is perfect. Within 10 minutes walk you have a choice of 3 beaches, through coconut groves or down a lovely main road to Lighthouse Beach. Angie and Den are the perfect hosts-shopping, eating, massage, trips etc. Whatever you need they can tell you...

Management response:

Thank you Wils,such a brilliant review ,you have said it all in a nut shell, we look forward to seeing you each year also.thank you so much for patronizing us ,we do appreciate it, & what an asset you are to the animals,they all love you. Keep up the good work Best wishes Angie ,Den & Staff
