KR House is a good budget homestay. There is a 'private' beach with steps down the cliff from the hotel. KR house claims to be a "luxury boutique residency" - although the views are incredible and the location serene, the room itself isn't great. There were several electrical problems when we arrived and the bed was hilariously uncomfy. There was no linen and we had to use our sleeping bag liners. However everything was spotless. The real gem of the hotel however was the manager - he was very charming and even offered to give us lifts into varkala town for free in his car. If I were to return to Varkala I would probably be more inclined to stay at the busier North Cliff where the bulk of the touristy restaurants etc are located. However, this is a lovely local spot and I recommend it.
