Went there in the off-season. Price was amazing for the location, the rooms are very well taken care of, the terraces are clean, the cane furniture new, the hammocks ready to use.. Wifi works, the owners are really nice and calm and the really good restaurants and bars are right around the corner at the cliff. It took the rickshaw... More

Stayed for the first three weeks of May and loved every single day. A great location. The owners are very friendly. They cleaned the room whenever I requested. Hot water and excellent wifi. The odd power cut but nothing major. Highly recommended.

A little guest house located on the Varkala cliff, Keratheeram is the place to be! Saji, who runs the place with her family is very welcoming and always has a smile on her face. The guest house is very close to the beach. Nevertheless, it is not in the middle of the marketplace which makes it very relaxing during the... More

I have many good things to say about this place. First of all the room was clean, had a big bathroom, a nice little seating area on the balcony, and a fan - all the essentials, and for a great price. The bed was also comfortable. There are also air conditioned rooms available. As far as budget guesthouses go, this... More

We stayed at Keratheeram for a few nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is run by a friendly family and is in a perfect location set back less than a minutes walk from the restaurants of North cliff and the beach below. The area was quiet and well maintained. We had a clean room with a fan which had a... More

Perfectly secluded spot yet so close to the heart of the cliffs. Stayed here once for several weeks off season, and also during the peak new year period. Whether you want an affordable long-term off season stay, or the beautiful beaches and action of the high season, Sumana and family do everything to ensure your stay is as the most... More

We enjoyed 6 nights in the cottage in February. The space is big, clean and comfortable. The location is very close to the beach, just a 2 minute walk. Plenty of restaurants are closeby (try ABBA with the friendly Nepali people!).

Stayed for 4 nights at the start of our journey through South India. Received a warm welcome after an early arrival from Colombo. Chose a very clean non-AC double at the rear of the property with an amazingly comfortable bed, wood-framed mozzie net, hot and cold water plus towels. Windows are secured and can be left open to allow the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of our trip to India. Varkala was the one place on our itinerary that we have been to before and we returned because its one of our favourite places in the world! The beach is fabulous and the actual town is small and friendly. Keratheeram is in a great location, half... More
