We stayed here for two weeks at the start of November 2014, good rate for the time of year although the cliff was quiet. We were looked after by Vivienne and Thomas from the moment we arrived. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. We requested clean sheets and towels every three days and only had to ask once.... More

The first thing that strikes you about this place is that it is immaculate. Extremely difficult to find dust anywhere. But more than anything is the attention to detail. A fresh flower on the balcony every morning for each room. Every info card neatly arranged on the table. And overall the warmth of the owner Vinciane, a Belgian lady is... More

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
