My wife and I had the pleasure to spend just over two weeks at Villa Jacaranda in December. We stayed in room 1, which has its own verandah, and absolutely loved it. Ajay and his staff were superb, helpful but unobtrusive. The rooms were impeccably clean. One thing which is highly recommended is to try their food, it is delicious.... More

Villa Jacaranda is a 4 room guest house run by Ajay with fantastic personal service on the South Cliff at Varkala. The rooms are lovely and the position is terrific. Ajay's personal welcome involves taking you through a map of all the local facilities, and that personal touch continues all the way through your stay. I loved the breakfast served... More

The owner of Villa Jacaranda Ajay, saved our holiday after a mess up with our flights. He couldn't have been more helpful in arranging everyything from taxis to a place to stay. The breakfast was excellent and served on our own balcony looking over the gardens and with a view to the sea. The room was nice and clean.
