I stayed the 3rd time in "Haven" of Varkala Villas. I love to get up in the morning and have a look across the south cliff of Varkala and the sea. Sunil, the owner of the place is such a lovely person, who helps you in every case. Will go back for a lobger time next year. The rooms are... More

I stayed in Varkala Villas, in Paru Villa, the budget rooms, for 2 weeks. The place was quiet and the owners, Mini and Sunil, really helpful and accommodating. The only issue I had was with the bugs that somehow seemed to find their way into the room in spite of the flywire screens.

I spent the nights in the Haven Resort, which has a spectecular view over the sea. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast on the roof terrace every morning is great. The rooms are simple but you don´t need more there. Whenever I go back to Varkala, I will spend the nights there.

I just got back from a weeklong stay at Varkala Villas. Sunil and his wife were incredibly kind and accommodating. I asked for an afternoon snack of fruit and coffee, for example, and I received it. The location is great--on the south cliff, away from the crowds on the north cliff. I liked that I had a short walk to... More

My wife and I (2 older travellers) have just completed a one week stay with Sunil and his wife at Varkala Villas and I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquility of South Cliffs (which is much quieter than North Cliffs). The rooms are very clean and spacious and the gardens are also very relaxing and picturesque.... More

We stayed in a very nice and super clean bungalow with a porch, facing the sea. Our hosts were both very nice and helpful not just with any information we may need about Varkala, but also with arranging other tours of Kerala. The breakfast was delicious starting from the super yummy pineapple juice through to the kerala breakfast.

A genuine homestay Suitable for everyone: families, backpackers and couples etc Close to the beach, shops, restaurants and Ayurveda treatment.. but still very quiet and calm. Very nice people run this place and because of that they will soon be your friends. You can trust them 100% and they know everything about touristy stuff and local things: great connections when...

I travelled with my girlfriend, we are a young couple. We stayed at Varkala Villas Haven guesthouse situated a mere 30 metres from Varkala South Cliff. The rooms are simple yet clean.

...inspired by Varkala Villa's owner Sunil, who was dismayed and concerned about the effect of previous review for his place (see below). Given that small guest houses can thrive or die based on their tripadvisor reviews, we would like to report that we had a very happy one-week stay at "God's Own Villa" in January 2014, in the neighbouring non-AC...

My disappointment was quite huge when I saw the "sea" view they promised me - actually bamboo houses face the wall of the villas in front of them and just a part of the garden surrounded by the stone wall. Yes, there's a wifi and rooms are clean but for that amount of money Varkala can offer rather cheaper accommodation... More
