This is a very pleasant stay. It is just what you'd expect for a beach house, 10 meters from sea, house is made from wood, all soft sand around it and enough trees to provide shade. Swimming is possible. The landlord is truly hospitable and often offers pineaple, coconut or tea! Also the food is really amazing with fresh calamari... More

We stayed two nights there on our way to Kovallam Beach. We enjoyed the peaceful pace and returned for eleven nights. We were made very welcome by Sasi and his family. Rooms were basic but so was the price. The bus stop was only minutes away with direct access to the ferry and railway. There are no cafes or restaurants... More

We stayed at the Summer House holiday home for 4 days in January 2014. We were made very welcome by Sessy the owner even though we hadn't booked and just turned up! It is quite basic accommodation but you have everything that you need and the cost of a room is within range for back packers. The food is amazing... More

My friend and I stayed here two nights and had a wonderful relaxing experience. The room was large, basic but really fine- open at the top so you could hear the sea all night. Mosquito repellent is a must, but they did provide coils and a net. It was excellent value for money, we were welcomed into the family celebration... More

I stayed in this simple cottage by the sea for two weeks. It is located at the end of lovely Keralan lane close by a very active temple. During my stay 18 elephants participated in an important festival. The owner, Mr Shashi, is very helpful. He is a retired Fisheries official who now owns a very good seafood restaurant. For... More

Go to Summer House if you want to be left alone and want to reflect on life and deep existential questions, or to write a book! Also go if you want really nice views of the ocean (not a swimming spot), cheap, basic acco. This is not very convenient if you want to take a backwater tour, its quite a... More

We are two well-travelled Australian women who have visited India 9 times between the two of us and we've never been anywhere remotely like this before in our lives! In a tropical setting, certainly is 'away from it all', requiring either a decent walk to the local bus stop or a jeep ride into town from the manager. Yes, you... More
