What I will remember most is the location on the beach which has not been developed as yet so no shacks or sunloungers and at the most we saw 20 people on a perfect sandy beach. The house is clean, well maintained garden with hammocks and our corner room was cool with 3 windows with screens and a fan. The...

We got there planning to stay 2 nights... then 3... then 4... and in the end stayed 6 nights in this little paradise. Indu and Pradeep are excellent hosts. What can I say? The food is delicious, everybody is charming, everything gets simple. Whatever you (reasonable) need, you can ask and they will find a solution. We'll be back!

I can't believe places like the blue mermaid exist in India. We had been travelling around for a few weeks, feeling a bit tired and weary and like we'd been fleeced one too many times, and then we found this place. It was everything we wanted: mainly and most importantly, the hosts are phenomenal. Indu and her husband Pradeep are...

Lovely hosts, wonderful place, fantastic beach. Indu and Pradeep made our experience feel like Heaven on Earth. Only a grumpy cinic could dislike a stay at Blue Mermaid... If only they would serve real Kerala coffee, it would be perfect.

Blue Mermaid was definitely the most relaxing time we had in India. Rare perfect combination of clean rooms, great food and extraordinarily attentive hosts without being too much. After I left Indu even sent me my phone which got stuck in customs. Can't recommend enough,

There are these rare places when you travel that make you want to come back. We certainly will return to Blue Mermaid. Indu and Pradeep and their staff are the most lovely hosts you can imagine. I had a cough and got hot ginger tea throughout the day. Indu even called up the next place we went to ask our...

This homestay has been my favourite place so far in India. Beautiful setting by the sea with a quiet beach just in front of the garden. There are beautiful walks in the forest behind the house where you can bird watch and see the every day life pass by. The homestay is very well run. The rooms are very clean...

First off, this homestay is NOT on Thottada but next door to Waves on Adikadalayi. We had to make quite a detour from Thottada to another headland to get here. So tell your cab accordingly before you book the prepaid. Having GPS on you will also help as the Kannur stretch of beachside homestays is quite tricky. The Blue Mermaid...

Firstly, the location of Blue Mermaid, which is about 8 km from Kannur is quite exclusive and ideal for a vacation where all you want to do is pretty much laze around. It is also perfect for this, since there really isn't much to see and visit in Kannur. My wife and I enjoyed every single service and amenity provided...

The Blue Mermaid has a fantastic location on the beach, and neat rooms. But the food is served in a most indifferent way. The first night we stayed here, the dinner was cold, and very basic. The breakfast was cold - the eggs and toast (and that's all there is to it) are prepared in advance and just kept on...
