My 17 year old and I stayed 5 nights at Kaiya House and found it to be the perfect place for us. More like a home than a hotel. We were well taken care of by owners Debra and Sadosh. The location was good, not right in the middle of the tourist bustle on the north cliff but only a 10 minute walk to there and the beach. Also we could walk to the other end of the beach from Kaiya and see the 2,000 year old temple and the interesting activities and rituals at the beach. Kaiya also happens to be right next door to an ayervedic centre for massage etc. We had a great time there and would definitely recommend it.
