We had a lovely stay here, and actually ended up staying an extra day because we didn't want to leave! After travelling around south india this was a lovely break where we felt we were being looked after by our family. Great price considering 3 delicious meals a day were included. They grow a lot of spices that go in... More

Very homely place, great hosts, and nice homely food. There's nothing much that you can do at the property except rest an relax. You could probably take an evening walk in the fields. Kuruva island was good, though no wildlife sighted. Rooms felt a little warm.

I couldn't have asked for more. Totally comfortable, super-clean, pretty, relaxing AND fun. Three delicious meals a day AND the owners and their family are incredibly warm, fun, helpful and generous. Beena and Vargese do everything possible to ensure that guests are happy. If you want to be busy, they help you with suggestions and transport, or you can just... More

Our homestay in Thottada Beach, KK Heritage, made our booking at Varnam. We were lucky to get the last room available. Arriving with a ricksaw we were greeted by a barking Bruno, the lovely and famous dog. The homestay is a real treat. The owners, Beena and Varghese, are so welcoming and friendly, it was hard to leave after only... More

I felt like i was at home, Varghese, Beena and family treated me like family and were very helpful with arranging trips and transportation. The homestay is situated in a small village called Kurukkanmoola with beautiful surroundings and farm land where you can enjoy walks. The homestay itself has a pretty garden and plenty of hammocks to laze around in.... More

This is a place that becomes like home overnight. Beena and Varghese are so friendly and helpful. The food is just fantastic and plentiful. And its a great location with plenty of nice walking nearby. Add to it an amazing dog that goes on walks with guests, badminton, a basketball, swings, a kid bicycle, and hosts that love kids, and...

Was at Varnum for two nights last week with a friend during a month trip through southern India from US. All the other positive reviews are spot on. While this is an economic choice and with meals, a stay costs less than $45/night, you are treated by the owners like family. Whether you have bug-bites or want a beer, they... More

An ultra friendly place. The rooms are simple but comfortable and the two rooms designed as a tree house are good fun even if a bit chintzy. The food is really good with plenty of variety and you can help yourself to fruits and biscuits etc if not full from the ample meals. Beena and Varghese will give you plenty... More
