The place is wonderful, it's different than in the picture, but in a good way. It's a little far from everything, so you have to walk a lot along the cliffs the it worth the view that you have. Or you can ask for a scooter, they will help you to rent one.

This was such a beautiful surprise for us. We had come to Odayam a few years back and were shocked to see how the place has been spoiled by construction, Then we found Good Karma Beach resort and we knew that there is still something nice in Odayam. The rooms are spacious and clean, the garden is lush and we... More

In January 2013 I stayed in this 'Home away from Home' and was very happy about the beautifully and individually styled rooms, the roof terrace and the many shady spots for relaxing in the well tended garden. The Homestay is run by friendly and efficient Daniela who has many good connections to auto-, taxi drivers, shop owners and a great... More

I love this place. The rooms are colorfull designed and clean and quiet. From the balcony you have a beautifull view into the garden with coconut trees, banana trees...and to the sea. You can enjoy your balcony - nobody can see you there from outside so that you can feel free there. The toproof is a good place for Yoga.... More

We stayed here for 11 nights. On arrival it was very clean with nice looking rooms. It's very close to the beach and some restaurants. The roof balcony area has real potential but could do with a lick of paint. They have cold water showers but to be honest we were grateful of this as it was roasting. Our room... More

A fantastic little hotel with cosy, comfortable rooms. The owners have paid a lot of attention to the details here and are very friendly and helpful. Unlike some places, it would be easy to spend all day here, with plenty of sunny and shady places to relax in the garden. Stayed in Jan 2012.
