I was supposed to stay in Varkala for five nights and ended up staying for 11! Saji and her family are so welcoming and warm and they cannot do enough for their guests. For this soft Northerner, arriving from the depths of British winter time, a ceiling fan was not enough to acclimatise me to the heat of Kerala but Saji quickly found me an a/c room which I stayed in for the rest of my time at Varkala.
Saji was there to answer any queries and questions, even arranging transport and recommending a (wonderful) homestay for the next leg of my trip to the Backwaters. The rooms and communal areas are kept spotlessly clean and the accommodation is perfectly located - near enough to the beach to be able to hear the waves at night but far enough away from the main tourist strip to get some peace and quiet (not that Varkala is a massively noisy resort!).
I cannot recommend Keratheermam highly enough: thank you, Saji and your family for such a lovely stay!
