“Peaceful surroundings, Tranquility and Great Team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

4 nights of great rest & relaxation to feel at home, especially with Gaurav & Uncle Thomas being great host to take care of me and my family consisting 8 adults and 3 kids. We love to travel on Home stays but so far this has indeed been one great journey and now I know why Kerala is known as GODS OWN COUNTRY, Because of the great views from Penrallt Mansions balcony and roof top to enjoy the cool breeze while having local breakfast. Power cuts are a norm in India however, we enjoyed sitting at the balcony daily for 30 minutes talking as we waited for the power. The beach is within a walking distance of 15 minutes. A great eatery is the nearby La promenade Hotel restaurant. Price for food was good and affordable, Food quality great. Do not bother eating at the beach restaurants as it's a long wait, food quality poor and prices are a rip off for such poor quality food & drinks.

“Very recommended place to those who love to travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This place is very good for a lay over or long stay, Nice room, friendly staff, spicy food is the best, thumbs up for that. Complete amenities.
The tress around the building, made the place look attractive, you've got to stay at the balcony early in the morning to take a deep breath and have some fresh air; You can see the nice view and a very beautiful nature.

This place is very convenient to beach, store, and take note the rate of each room is very affordable. Very recommended place.
