Clean beautiful rooms, very relaxed and welcoming. Great location close to the cliff path, but set back enough to be quiet. This place is a real gem. We found it by pure luck walking around..very happy to have done so. Lovely, who runs the place, is simply wonderful. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This review is a bit overdue... we stayed at La Maison de Varkala in November last year and now as we are at the end of our Indian adventure we can say that this was the loveliest guesthouse we stayed at during our entire trip! And the lovely guesthouse manager really is Lovely by name and lovely by nature. We turned up after selecting a different guesthouse from Lonely Planet, only to have our tuk tuk driver take us to a site of a renovation (not a scam - it was really under renovation!). Lovely came to the rescue and offered us a room at Le Maison de Varkala within our backpackers budget. We stayed in the 'Enlightenment' room with beautiful four-poster bed and it was such a treat to wake up to an enlightened buddha patinting on the wall before us. We intended to stay just a couple of nights but stayed more as we did not want to leave. Will definitely come back again! Thank you Lovely! :)

I stayed at La maison de Varkala in December 2012 for almost one week. Lovely was helpful all the way, she picked me up at the train station in the middle of the night and drove me some places when I needed to, at a cheaper price. The breakfast is delicious (especially the Indian style one). The house is located very close to the cliff, so it is easy to go around. I would totaly recommend if you are looking for a clean, quiet and welcoming house.
We also had a delicious meal on the rooftop terrase, traditionnal indian cuisine on banana leaf, it was amazing!
Thank you for everything Lovely, and wish you all the best!

Lovely is the name of the charismatic, energetic lady who runs La Maison du Varkala. She picked us up from the train station, sorted us out during our stay in Varkala and arranged for onward transport ... all with a bright, infectious smile.

Varkala has boomed in the last three years, with hotels and b&bs popping up everywhere. We were very glad to have found an inexpensive, quality place amid it all and will definitely be going back.

Very nice small hotel located in between the palm trees 10 min walk from the cliff in Varkala. The service was impeccable, our room clean and spacious, the owner very helpful ; she could also arrange for us some local Ayurveda and transportation.
