An extremely peaceful, safe & quiet place with all basic amenities. No in-house catering. No TV, A/C rooms, geysers. Wi Fi provided- basic. Would be extremely comfortable Nov-Jan but by end Feb it gets quite humid here. Afternoons can be really warm. On the first day, there was a constant ocean breeze blowing so sitting out was fun but that... More

Right by the beach at the northern quieter end of Varkala this guest house offers simple rooms with ensuite facilities and fans. No aircon and cold water only, which is fine on a hot day. Lilly and Shah are very friendly and helpful, will arrange tours and excellent laundry service. No restaurant, but next door at palm heritage has a... More

Magnolia Guesthouse provided us with a beautiful private villa, set within a gorgeous garden, a stones throw away from the lovely Odyam beach. Lillimore was the perfect hostess and had some great recommendations of places to eat. Our rooms were cleaned daily and any requests we had were met by Lillimore. Magnolia Guesthouse is in a great location, far enough... More

Very clean, really helpful hosts and very close to the beach. It's out of the heavy tourist area and as we had breakfast on the beach we saw the local fishermen and eagles overhead. It's normally warm but they don't have hot showers.

The Magnolia guest house is nice. They have 2 rooms facing the seaside, one family room partly facing the seaside and one family room facing the back yard. Unfortunately we had the last one. For anyone who wants to relax in peace and read books the rooms facing the sea are ideal. The beach and a good restaurant are only... More

Stumbling upon the Magnolia Guesthouse via Tripadvisor was a very lucky find. Perfectly situated at the Northern End of the spectacular cliffs of Varkala, it's well out of the traffic, yet just minutes away from top restaurants in the main tourist area and beautiful walks up and down the coast. The rooms are fantastic and it was the host, Shah,... More
