Reviewed December 4, 2012

Me and my mum stayed at Casa Eva Luna for a week. It was our first time in India, and Casa Eva Luna was a perfect place to stay at. Its a lovely and relaxing Guesthouse, with very friendly staff. Katrina and Ester, who is the owner of the place, new a lot about Varkala and India, and helped us a lot with getting the most out of our stay in India. The Guesthouse have everything you need for having a wonderful stay in India, restaurant with wonderful food, massage room and a lot of opportunities to do different kind of activities and treatments. The rooms where also very lovely, clean and nice, and the balconies where perfect for sitting outside at night, reading a book and drinking a lovely cup of chai tea. We loved the place, and will absolutely recommend it to everyone who wants a wonderful and relaxing stay in Varkala!

Casa Eva Luna made our stay for us in Varkala. We originally booked for 3 nights and ended up returning to stay for 7 as we loved it so much!

Casa Eva Luna is a great homestay and the perfect place to relax and chill out. It’s just a short walk to North Cliff where the bars, restaurants and beach are located.

We loved Casa Eva Luna so much as we had been travelling for a couple of months and this was the first time somewhere had felt like home. Little touches make Casa Eva Luna special mainly because of the hosts but also things such as board games to play, magazines to read and badminton and Frisbee available to use. Plus really good Wifi!!!!

Hosts Katrina and Esther make you feel very welcome in their home. They have a great knowledge of not just Varkala but also of Kerala. Esther’s cooking is a definite must!!! We had our breakfast and dinner there most days and didn’t bother too much with the restaurants at North Cliff. The breakfast and dinner menu is large with lots of different options. Spanish Tapas normally took our fancy with Spanish omelette, potato bravas and pizza being our favourite. Esther’s cakes for dessert were also amazing.

We stayed in the bubble room located on the bottom floor which was spacious and comfy. Attached was the en-suite bathroom, extremely clean and again spacious.

An absolute must stay if visiting Varkala!

I had three nights at Casa Eva Luna and it was the perfect place to unwind, surrounded only by the sounds of the Kerala countryside. It's a short walk to the clifftop but the terrace at the guesthouse and the food here was so good that it was hard to make the effort...muchas gracias a Esther y Katrina, lo agredezco mucho...

Can't recommend Casa Eva Luna enough! The owners are wonderful, so friendly, helpful and funny, and have excellent knowledge of the region and of India. The house has free wifi, the rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated AND the prices are very reasonable (understatement). Breakfast was good... Nice quiet location, 10 min walk to the beach... As I said, can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: Get the aqua room!

Me and my friend arrived here after a few days of hell in the north of India!
We booked an airport transfer through the hotel which reasonably priced and the driver was very friendly!
My friend had food poisoning and the owners were very accommodating, ensuring she had everything she needed and offered to take us to the doctors.
We originally booked in for three nights bug stayed for five as it was very relaxed and homely!
The food was amazing offering a selection of different cuisines, all reasonably priced!!
I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, whether backpacking or on a family holiday!!
