I stayed here last week (1st to 3rd May), I had gone with my husband and a 2.5 years old son. The best thing is the location, just take few steps out from your room and you are on the beach. Rooms are average, with no TV in the room, washrooms are basic (clean but small). We took AC room,... More

Yes this homestay is perfectly placed...at a beach..away from the hustle-bustle of the city. We reached there in the evening following google map. At one point, it was like we are going to land up in sea. Beach is clean and peaceful. Great place to enjoy morning and evening walk. I also liked the design of the homestay. Rather than... More

Had stayed here with a bunch of friends during the Easter weekend. Highlight of this places is its proximity to the beach. The owner, Ms. Indu and her husband were also very friendly. The food was prepared fresh from their garden produce and variety of food was excellent. Rooms are clean and airy. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

We stayed at the Blue Mermaid for 5 nights in January 2015. We had a wonderful time. Indu and her husband (as well as the fantastic and smiley staff) were incredibly warm and helpful. Anything we needed they were there to help us. The rooms were very comfortable. We took the non-ac room and it the fan kept us cool... More

We miss this wonderful place, so calm peaceful and quiet. The palm-fringed beach is beautiful and almost empty, good for swimming, walking, yoga and chill out :) Hosts are very nice, friendly and very helpful, we came in the middle of night and they saved us from tigers ;) they can also help you if you want to meet with...

The location of this homestay is pure magic. An unspoilt beach just in front and with no crowds of other visitors. Excellent service by staff and hosts. Quality food served at breakfast and dinner we enjoyed every day. One of our most positive memories from this fantastic area of Kerala.

The beach is directly infront of the Homstay and the homemade food is delicious! Indu, the owner, is a really frndly person and is very keen to make your stay as nice as possible! I hope... More

The Blue Mermaid sits right on the beach that has very few people on it. You can literally walk from your room to the water. The hosts are wonderful - very helpful, very friendly, accommodating, and responsive. They organized evening visits to theyyams, and helped everyone with their onward planning (trains, etc.) That said, I think some improvements could be... More

My wife and I arrived late at night after a long and exhausting day of bus and train travel. We had booked the separate cottage and were immediately shown to our magical dwelling on stilts. We then were given the most welcome and nurturing array of food ( and a frosty Kingfisher) and realized we had entered a rare and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and was our 3rd visit (see previous reports). Blue Mermaid is a real favourite of ours and I think this stay was our best. Blue Mermaid has matured into a fabulous beach stay with great food where you can really relax. The beach is unspoilt and I hope it stays that way. Indu and her... More
