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. Sunil, the manager is friendly and welcoming. The place is quiet and respectable. There is no breakfast service but guests can use the kitchen for the preparation of... More

...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

It's a lovely place on the south cliff, quiet and much less touristy (70 rupee on tuktuk from railway station). It has three rooms at the front in the main building, and four cottages at the back facing the green garden and the sea (although blocked a little by another property). The room was very spacious (incl the bathroom), well... More

We had arranged with Sunil airport pickup and the driver took us straight there, we had a long journey but were welcomed with a massive smile. The room was clean and comfy to stay in. The garden was beautiful and on our veranda we had fresh flowers every morning and a gorgeous breakfast. All of the staff were more than... 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 keralan breakfast. The location... More

Varkala Villas is tucked away on the South Cliff which is the much more peaceful and less touristy part. Still only around a 5 minute walk to the beach and a couple of great restaurants to while away your time (Marine Palace is definitely worth a visit on the sea front) and then around 15 minutes walk to North Cliff...

As simple as it may be, Varkala Villas is the most welcoming place with the friendliest and most helpful staff. We, a family with three children including one toddler, stayed on and off for 2 months and couldn't have been more well looked after. Sunil and his staff do everything to make your stay in India a pleasurable one, even... More

As soon as we arrived at Varkala Villas (towards the end of our travels in Kerala), we realised we had made a good choice. We hadn't known quite what to expect given the budget pricing for the 'sea view, a/c cottage' and also had variable experiences of India's hotels thus far in our trip, but Varkala Villas was perfect.
