I stayed at Mummys Bamboo House on two occasions, first upon arrival in Kerala and then I wanted to come back and rest after two weeks ' on the road' . The family Sudhanen takes good care of you, and are always there to assist. Let's say that they make you feel at home. I paid 650 rupees for my... More

The Mummy bamboo house definitely is a superb place to stay whilst in Varkala. I think that on a three month trip through India and SE Asia, Mummy bamboo house offered the cleanest and most spacious room we've had for the 800R per night (high season). You get a private bathroom (no hot water though, but a cool refreshing shower)... More

Big room (by indian standards) with rather big bathroom and a balconie. No hot water. Wifi is very stable with good internet speed. Owners are really friendly and helpful. Located just a minute's walk from the "beach". The place is pretty quiet, apart from the random loud "gunshot" noises they make to scare off the birds.

We had a legendary cooking lesson from Rhani which was absolutely spectacular where we made approximately 10 vegetarian dishes and ate off banana leaves, she is such an incredible lady... More

On a recommendation from a friend we booked 5 nights at Mummy Bamboo and ended up staying 8! The location is brilliant, just 3 mins walk to the beach, and the rooms are spacious and clean. Our host was very welcoming and friendly and we would definitely stay here again.

Brilliant!! For 850 rupees a night you get a room that is clean and reflects the price. Great patio for every room, fantastic location, fab taxi service and the best hosts you could ever ask for! We stayed three nights and are using Sudhanan to get to the airport later this week. Sudhanan is our taxi of choice, every time... More

My room was fairly clean (aside from a strange smell, maybe antricide) and had a mosquito net. What I enjoyed the most was the hammock on my terrace. It is a very peaceful place. Rani was really a Mummy to me. She was already waiting for me on my arrival. And one noon she cooked a delicious kerala dish served... More
