“A great family home stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Thank you so much for your warm & friendly hospitality when we stayed in March.

It felt like we were getting a real taste of Keralan village life staying with Allwyn & his lovely family.

Simple, relaxed, clean & cheery. They did so much to make our stay memorable. I was even taken down to the local Ayurvedic doctor to have my back seen to. This meant having three intense massages, administered by two men, massaging in a sort of mirror image action, one on either side. Never had that before!

But one of the highlights was the cooking. Simply delicious! Especially the crab & squid masala we had on the last night. Finger licking good!

The place is nice & quiet as it if off the main road but still only a few minutes walk from the beach.

Room is spacious, with AC, internet & a nice open to the sky shower room.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: They may have two rooms now but only one when we stayed.

I stayed with my family during the rainy June ... but we really enjoyed the place, very homely and neat with hosts personal attention in every thing. Marari Dreamz is just 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Marari beach which we enjoyed everyday even though it rained most of the time. The room had air conditioning which we avoided as the climate was really nice. The elephant ride was a gorgeous surprise and my kid really enjoyed the same. Will recommend this place to everyone visiting Kerala for a homely vacation at an accessible price. 5 stars to the hosts

Room Tip: Go in the off season (rainy) to get good rates and enjoy the beach alone !!

Hi Bino,
Really happy that you enjoyed the rainy week @ Marari Dreamz. Our place came to be very live with a lot of activities, during your visit even if it was raining. The elephant ride was one of the highlighted event we conducted and Thank God the sun had some mercy towards us on that day.
We would like to host your family once again before the year ends and you are always welcome to our place !

Regards
Allwyn

If anyone is planning to visit Marari,spend some peaceful time at Marari beach then the best place to stay is Marari Dreamz...I went there with my sisters and we were only there for a day but the hospitality and the sweetness of a wonderful couple (Allwyn and Jency) gave a completely different dimension to our short stay at marari...What more to to say but in case we would have missed this wonderful homestay then our trip would have been incomplete....The place is extremely beautifully constructed,great authentic kerala fish dinner prepared by Jensy and awesome hosts....Highly recommended for anyone who is planning to visit marari at any time...!

I only stayed for a day but it was a wonderful experience: the space is extremely generous and comfortable, designed with great taste and attention for detail. Hosts have been most friendly and welcoming, and the food was a treat. highly recommended!

Not much to add to the other excellent reviews: First of all Great hosts who provide any possible help and speak fluent English and Italian, great and generous food, really cool outdoor bathroom, and near to a great sandy and safe beach that we almost had to ourselves other than a few fishermen who were there. The room is spacious for 3 people (we were 3 adults and 2 kids) and more on the functional/modern side (AC worked) rather than the "traditional Kerala interior design" side. Reading lights would have been nice. The garden is a big plus, but you have to use campground common sense to avoid ants carrying off your stuff. The location is in the village, next to a church (which we found a bit loud during the first days of our stay but that has calmed down a lot now) and some small shops. The beach is maybe 200m away. We had a great time.
