The house situated in a quite location, not too far from beaches. Spacious and light rooms with a nice big terrace, a lot of green in the garden. Rosa is a great host, always very helpful and friendly.

We booked with Rose on the recommendation of a friend and we weren't disappointed. Our room was clean and comfortable and the house has a large kitchen for the use of guests. Rose couldn't do enough to make us feel at home and familiarise us with th locality.

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. Rose was very helpful with suggestions on places to see. The room was very spacious and very well kept. Hot water was available in the shower. There is a common kitchen where you can make tea/coffee for yourself. We also had a mini-fridge available in the room. The location... More

Located on the south cliff of Varkala, this really nice beach house (100 meter away from the beach) gives you the ultimate vacation feeling. Combining this with a very comfortable set up of the nicely decorated rooms and the warmth of an enthousiastic and caring owner makes this place a real treat and therefore highly recommended!! Aditionally it is also... More

I certainly recommend Gumnut - it was a very comfortable stay. Having a kitchen/ fridge was very helpful. It was very clean, with good storage. Wifi was pretty good. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again for sure.

I spent two lovely nights in Gumnut. This homestay is located on the south cliff of Varkala, the quieter side. Walk downhill to the beach takes 5-7mins. I usually take a nice walk on the beach when heading to north cliff. Will take a good 25mins walk. The rooms are very tidy and clean, mosquito nets covering all the windows,... More
