It's human tendency to look at anything after with Negative eye once you find one big negative. I will try to tell whatever we really felt and not over criticize. We found the service of this place fairly basic. We were given only one dosa each in breakfast and there was nothing we could choose from. Dosa was very average... More

La Maison de Varkala has a new location and it is really much more beautiful, is inside a huge garden very quiet and very natural. Lovely and Chinnu are very special people as they make you feel at home. The place is 5 minutes walking from the sea, or you can catch a risciò. The rooms are large, clean and... More

Nice place with beautiful garden, you can enjoy siting on the terrace drinking tea. Some 10 minutes walk to the beach. Pleasant hosts. Clean, simple rooms, comfortable beds with anti mosquito net. Wi-fi OK No A/C. No hot water. You can get some basic meals if you ask, but there is plenty restaurants on the beach.

The hotel is set back off the main road and the rooms overlook a large tropical garden. The rooms were very clean, but basic. I had ayurvedic treatments at the hotel, which were very good and also very convenient as I could go back to my room and rest afterwards. I also ate at the hotel and the food prepared... More

I spent 10 days at La Maison de Varkala and it was really a perfect stay. The property just change the place and it's 5/7 minutes walk from the beach, far from the noise of the cliff. All rooms have a balcony or outdoor sitting area where you can rest or enjoy the garden view. The room is spacious and... More

The homestay is well looked after by the two sisters, with beautiful gardens, the offer of delicious food and they will bend over backwards for you. The problem is, they have moved from the helipad, and are now a 15 minute walk away from south cliff, and down some dark alleys - I didn't feel safe walking late at night... More

This is a great guesthouse close to the main cliff. Professionally run by two sisters - who always made us feel very welcome. We were a couple with two kids aged 11 and 3 - we took two upstairs rooms and had a fab balcony overlooking their tropical garden. The rooms were perfect; ensuite, clean and very spacious. If we...
