Mango Villa is the guesthouse with that certain something. You can see that a lot of love has been put into the place. Much attention is payed to details such as daily fresh flowers everywhere or a phone with whom you can call the owner if she's not around. The owner itself gives the Mango Villa that homely, hospitable character... More

Just spent 17 hours on a train from palolem and had pre booked with Mango Villa. The welcome we received was amazing. We were greeted with enthusiasm and huge smiles and shown to our room. After we showered we walked down stairs and were quickly and casually checked in and treated like friends. We asked where the restaurants were and... More

We did not have a reservation - so we were more than lucky that we got a huge, superclean and comfortable room with aircon. We had our own big balcony with a fridge, an amazing shower and a lot of space. What a shame that the mosquitos were a bit annoying, so we could not enjoy the lovely garden at... More

Mango Villa – a great place to stay whilst you are in Varkala. The rooms are clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water. We stayed in a room with a fan which was a bit hot but our choice as air-con was more expensive. Just a short walk through the Tibetan market to the cliff and down steep steps to... More

This was the best possible way to end out stay in India. The best host with the loveliest son!! We stayed in April 2013 and loved it. The rooms are clean, tidy and a 2 min walk to the main strip along the cliffs. We just had a great time there and will be returning next year. We look forward... More

We very much enjoyed our few days at Mango Villa. Vinciane is a wonderfully helpful host and pulls out all the stops to make sure you get the most out of your visit in Varkala. The room was lovely and airy and fresh and just a short walk away from the North Cliff.

We stayed here for 3 nights in January and it was a great choice. Vinciane (the owner from Belgium) is a very friendly person who makes this villa a perfect stay in Varkala! The rooms are spotlessly clean, big and very well decorated, balcony is big (every room has one) and the location is quiet, just behind the tibetan market,... More

We stayed 4 nights at Mango Villa and wished we could stay a bit longer! It was one of the best and nicest accomodations while we stayed in India. Perfectly located near to the cliffs and everything nearby and still in a quiet and very friendly environment, full of flowers and green, and accordingto this time with a christmas tree,... More

We stayed at Mango Villa for four nights and wished we had more time there. The property is owned and run by Vinciane, who is extremely helpful and kind. She walked us to the Tibetan Market and gave us some good tips about restaurants, where to get coffee etc. We opted for a non AC room and it was cooling... More

Perfect cleanliness Belgium standards quality rooms to relax ( the lower rooms are cheaper and cool without ac). Comfort and quality with a relaxed caring service at International levels.
