Booked this place over the Internet during the non-tourist season. Fantastic. So private and beautifully presented. During the tourist season Vakala can be busy and Mango Villa is far enough away from the main cliff edge but 3-5 minutes walk away. It is absolutely quiet in the evenings.

Thank you Vinciane and Thomas for a wonderful stay. Our room was tastefully appointed spotlessly clean and the cool shady balcony was a pleasure looking over the beautiful lush garden. Modern clean bathroom with solar hot water, excellent screening on the windows and a quiet efficient fan meant a cool well ventilated room. Set 3 minutes walk along a path... More

Mango Villa is in a beautiful quiet location, just back from the cliffs. The grounds are really well kept and we felt the perfect combination of secluded and close to everything. The owner Vinciane is wonderful and welcoming, and did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer there, and would go back in... More

I've stayed in Mango Villa for 4 nights, and enjoyed it very much. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the cliff, and close to some good restaurants/ cafes of Varkala. Remember to take a torch with you In case you return in dark hours ,since part of the path leading to the villa has no light... More

This is defintely one of the best places you can stay in Varkala, and there are many of them. The rooms are nice with verandas, it's just around the corner and you are walking through the tibetan market to the cliff. And last but not least, Vinciane - from Belgium - is a lovely host. The beautiful garden is done... More

We (my wife and I) stayed at Mango Villa for one night during our 3-day visit to Varkala in December 2014. The place is run by a lovely Belgian lady Vincienne, who has been running this villa / home stay for about 5 years. Vincienne was very warm, made us feel very welcome and gave us some invaluable advice on... More

Spent a fantastic week at this guest house, owner was very accommodating, showed us some quick hot spots on main cliff front when we arrived late after long train journey. Also organised a tuk tuk for our departure to save carrying bags to main Taxi stand. Great location in quite back streets off main cliff front, it is quite dark... More

My girlfriend and I were in Varkala for only one night and Mango Villa was the perfect place to stay. Vinciane was super friendly and helpful and allowed us to check in early as we'd arrived on the night train. The place is only a five minute walk to the clifftop bars and restaurants but it's still very quiet. Although... More
