I was lucky to be able to stay for six or seven weeks. Sunil and Unni were always courteous and helpful, the room was spotlessly clean and bedding and towels always changed when asked. The wifi actually worked properly and the hammock on the balcony was a great addition. I'd look forward to staying there again if I was in... More

A wonderful homestay. with a very central yet quiet location on the North Cliff. Bindi and her two lovely daughters make you feel very welcome. Bindi gave me very good recommendations for a facial and for ayurvedic massages. My room was beautiful and clean and even had a balcony. I can only confirm the other recommendations
