I went back to stay at MBH this year after a very long gap and I found it to be even more friendly, if that is possible, than the last time I stayed there. And, as for Rani's food, there is nothing like it. Absolutely superb! Everything is spotlessly clean and it is the best value I have ever found,... More

I stayed at Mummy Bamboo with my partner for over 2 weeks in April. We arrived in the middle of a torrential storm, and my partner had just slipped a disk in his back. There was a power cut but Mummy still offered a lift to the hospital or the local ayurveadic back specialist. If you choose to eat there,... More

Staying at Mummy Bamboo House was a highlight of my husband and my trip to India. The host is the mummy of a very friendly family. We stayed in one of the lower hammock units and we often took part in Mummy's family's daily chats. The accommodation is clean, affordable and comfortable. It is located at the end of a... More

We had only planned on three nights in Varkala but decided to stay longer.Found Mummy Bamboo just off the main drag on North Cliff. Excellent value no frills accommodation in convenient location. Also arrange taxis etc. All other services by arrangement as well. Use pools at nearby hotels for reasonable daily fees.

I stayed over a week. Rani is a wonderful cook and all her family is very kind. The rooms are clean, pretty and located right next to the path down to the beach. I really enjoyed the quiet of the place to relax and chill.

This was our second visit to this homestay after a break of two years. rani still has the warmest welcome and loveliest smile. The rooms are clean and well kept and the food was lovely. The mattresses have been upgraded and are comfortable. Nothing is too much problem and we will be coming back again.
