The Indian family who own and operate the guesthouse live next door, so they were always around, and they were super friendly and helpful. Great location in the center of the cliff area. Very...

I had a very nice stay here. The rooms are clean, and I can highly recommend to have some food here too: much cheaper and I would call it better (yet a little spicy). Her fish curries are truely amazing!

Very warm and lovely host family. The room and bathroom are small, with basic facility but clean, especially liked the balcony. Also enjoyed the home made Kerala food. cliff is close, but no view of sea.

You get a private bathroom (no hot water though, but a cool refreshing shower)... More
