A group of seven of us were looking for a quiet location but minutes from the life of Varkala's cliff top. We found Jicky's ticked these boxes. In a little oasis set back from the cliff, we found a little Oasis to spend our evenings with roof top yoga for the mornings. Rooms are simple yet spacious and clean. Hot... More

Being at the seaside, it's nice to have the room cleaned daily to get rid of the sand and that's the best thing of this place. The position is not on the cliff and the garden and the palm garden could be kept much better to offer clients the chance to enjoy the relaxed location (not even a chair, empty... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 2016. Our first night was spent in a budget room because the mid range rooms were full. The budget rooms are small and simple, but clean and come with cute little balconies. Ours was so small though that it got very hot. The mid range rooms are great - a bit bigger,... More

I found Jickys from the lonely planet guide. The cottage was very comfortable, hot water and wifi, great location for the north cliff and the beach. No real negatives, friendly staff! No on site food, there is an arrangement with a nearby restaurant which isn't great but there are rich choices nearby

For the price you pay this place is excellent. Perfectly located just 2 minutes walk from the main strip and 5 minutes from the beach. The rooms are bright and airy and most importantly it was clean. The WiFi worked fine and reception staff were friendly, looked after our luggage and let us use the showers after check out.

This b&b is located close to helipad jb the beginning of long stretch of hotels. It is not particularly special in any way. We stayed at a cottage which was not very clean with lots of dead flies on the windowsill of the bathroom (there are also wandering millipedes so watch out). Nothing to rave about. Breakfast was nothing special... More

Perfect location close to the beach and most restaurants. The rooms in the main building are spacious and clean. Mosquito net is provided. Only downside was the broken fan which was very noisy at night. Earplugs help. There are yoga mats available on the rooftop if you want to work on your asanas.

This was my favorite residency of the trip when we stayed there - very clean and bright with helpful staff. I actually left an envelope full of money under the mattress mistakenly and then when I called to ask if they found it they said yes! All the money was accounted for...I had to travel back from another city but... More

The room was fine, quite small but with lively decoration. Our room had a small porch area which was nice to sit in. Jicky's is a five minute walk from the beach so the location is good. We didn't see much of the staff and compared to other places we stayed it was quite void of personality. However it did... More
