“Individual atmosphere”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

In January 2013 I stayed in this 'Home away from Home' and was very happy about the beautifully and individually styled rooms, the roof terrace and the many shady spots for relaxing in the well tended garden.
The Homestay is run by friendly and efficient Daniela who has many good connections to auto-, taxi drivers, shop owners and a great ayurvedic doctor.
German, English and French are spoken.
Quiet Odayam Beach is just a 2 minute walk away, and 3 good restaurants with daily offers of fresh fish are within easy walking distance right at the beach.
Great value for money!

Room Tip: The 4 rooms with balcony and sea view are the best and coolest.

I love this place. The rooms are colorfull designed and clean and quiet. From the balcony you have a beautifull view into the garden with coconut trees, banana trees...and to the sea. You can enjoy your balcony - nobody can see you there from outside so that you can feel free there. The toproof is a good place for Yoga. Daniela, the owner from Germany, is very nice and friendly and helps you to find whatever you need. All together there is a spirtitual and peacefull atmosphere. And it is just a small walk to the beach where you find nice restaurants and the most beautifull beach in Varkala.

We stayed here for 11 nights. On arrival it was very clean with nice looking rooms. It's very close to the beach and some restaurants. The roof balcony area has real potential but could do with a lick of paint. They have cold water showers but to be honest we were grateful of this as it was roasting. Our room was only cleaned once in the 11 days we were there - we weren't expecting it to be cleaned everyday but more than once would have been nice! There wasn't really much service to speak of and the one time we asked them to sort a rickshaw for us to our early train they assured us they would but in fact totally forgot. I think this place is a good cheap option for maybe just 3 or 4 nights.

A fantastic little hotel with cosy, comfortable rooms.

The owners have paid a lot of attention to the details here and are very friendly and helpful.

Unlike some places, it would be easy to spend all day here, with plenty of sunny and shady places to relax in the garden.

Stayed in Jan 2012.
