For once people of Tripadvisor... believe the hype! The other 5* reviews on here are spot on.
Kaiya house offers a truly remarkable experience, providing complete professionalism in a relaxed, home-stay environment.
It is very difficult to describe how wonderful our time at Kaiya house was... it would appear that others who have commented on TripAdvisor have also had a similar difficulty.
The property is clean and full of wonderful art work and artefacts. The rooms are "themed" to different cultures (Japanese room, Africa room etc.).The communal spaces within the property are beautifully designed and provide a wonderful location to meet fellow guests. The staff are local and provide extra services at extremely reasonable prices (fresh fruit juices, laundry services etc.). Above all it is the owner, Debra, who makes the stay at Kaiya truly remarkable - Her professionalism, honesty and energy are what makes Kaiya house #1 in Varkala on Tripadvisor - In our opinion Kaiya House should be #1 in all of India!
