“I am sure, I will come back next year...........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This was my 3rd time in Varkala and my second stay in this lovely homestay. The rooms was light with a silent fan and wi-fi availabel. The large bathroom, complete with shower, has fresh towels, soap and toilet paper provided. A hammock on the balcony is a wonderful place to relax.
The Keratheeram Beach Resort in a great location less than a minutes walk to beach and restaurants. I stayed on my own and felt absolutely safe. Saji and her husband, they are very helpful and you will feel welcome. Lovely people.
....and I love Saji`s delicious pancake with banana and coconut and her coffee without sugar in the morning.
Thand you for all and it´s sure I will come back next year and stay in this lovely homestay Keratheeram Beach Resort.
Love and Greetings from Marina from Germany

I've stayed in kerathereram for over almost two months. The guesthouse is tidy and clean, the rooms are light and peaceful. Each room has a balcony area with chairs, table and a hammock . Saji and sumanen the owners are sweet and friendly, and always willing to help you with every question you have.
The guesthouse is located in the best place on the cliff, a minute walk from all the action, so you can enjoy everything but still relax in the quietness of the guesthouse area.
Highly recommended!

I spend three night in Keratheeram and it was not enough. I can totally agree all the good thinks that others in here have already said.

Very friendly and welcoming place, clean, really good location with some private.

Hammock was absolutely the best place to spend hottest hours of the days.

We stayed a week here, and could happily have stayed longer. The guest house is set a little back from the cliff-top, which is nice and quiet, but conveniently located for a huge choice of places to eat, and the beach. Due to a slight confusion over our dates, we moved rooms for the last 2 nights, so got the chance to sample 2 different rooms. Both were basic but very clean and comfortable, and both beds were extremely comfortable too. The 2nd room had an option of air conditioning, but we were quite happy with just the ceiling fan. There is not much storage in some of the rooms, which might bother you if you had a lot of luggage. It was nice to have chairs to sit out on the balcony/walkway, and very useful to have a line for drying swimsuits or items of laundry. We also appreciated having free WiFi and being able to keep up with our emails.
We arranged a pick-up from Trivandrum airport, which was great, as we got straight into the car (a comfortable Ambassador) and had no worries about finding the guest house in the dark.
We didn't eat at the Keratheeram, so can't comment on the food, but a yoga group was eating there most days, and obviously enjoying what was provided. Saji was very friendly and helpful, and we would happily go back (next week please!).

I came back to the glorious Varkala once more and LOVED my stay at Keratheeram. The guest house is so clean and very close to the beach. It's peaceful I feel so rested and relaxed here. Saji and Sumanan look after everyone. We even had a group dinner together where Saji cooked which was wonderful. It's the best place to stay in Varkala if you want cosy, clean and close to the beach.
