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

A great place to stay, located just at the back of the Tibetan market, and 2 minutes walk from the main beach area. The room was very clean and spacious with a balcony and fridge. No breakfast available but numerous cafés and places to eat on the doorstep. The host was very helpful providing us with all the information required... More

Lovely little guesthouse. Not a hotel so won't have any real hotel amenities (like a restaurant, etc) but rooms are large and clean (no TV), bathrooms are also big. Nice balcony/patio area outside each room with chairs for relaxing. Owner is very nice and friendly. Wi-fi is included, but quite spotty (keeps logging out), and hot water also not too... More
