You can get a great cottage here for Rs 500 a night during the off-season (I went in mid-February). My room was clean, well-furnished, and came with a mosquito net. Fast wi-fi near reception. I liked this place because it's off the main cliff walk so it's nice and quiet at night, though it is a bit of a walk from the beach (7-10 min).
The kid who works here is quite nice, he helped me bring in my bag and figure out how to work their unique built-in locks. I did not appreciate, however, the owner's attempt to charge me for an extra night when I checked out 30 minutes late. I told him I had to finish packing up about 15 minutes before the noon check-out time and assumed it would be okay to be a little bit late. Nope, he tried to charge me an extra 500. I flatly refused and he eventually relented; I just don't like that he had the guts to do something like that.
