We stayed at Villa Jacaranda over the christmas period for a few nights, first impressions: What a lovely Guesthouse.

We had room four. The room was charming, really clean and airy, it was nice to eat breakfast on the patio overlooking the garden, so quiet and peaceful.

Ajay has a wonderful place and brilliant staff. If anyone is planning to visit
Varkala, l suggest you try and stay here first.

We have just returned from a fabulous break at the Villa Jacaranda.
The villa itself is a delight, immaculately clean and full of small surprises, daily fresh flowers and lovely linen for example. Breakfast is wonderful with a good choice. The private verandah areas for the individual rooms are just that, secluded and peaceful, overlooking the beautiful gardens and through the palm trees to the sea.
The location is great, a genuine 5 minute walk to the quieter South Beach with a number of beachside restaurants. A further 5 – 10 mins walk takes you to the busier North Cliff area and more variety. A short auto rickshaw ride will get you into Varkala town for browsing or shopping for fabrics, gifts etc.
The host Ajay is charming and goes out of his way to ensure your stay is peaceful and relaxing (calmly resolving my own mistake with dates of a houseboat booking – highly recommended trip by the way, Ajay has the contact). All the staff are equally mindful of your experience, discreet but on hand should you need anything.
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It really is a lovely experience.
I have noted some less than positive reviews recently which are puzzling and while of course individual tastes are just that some of the information is plainly misleading, the location and hot water for example – we had no problems with either. I have suspicions about the reviewers motives and have reported this Trip Advisor.

Having travelled to Varkala for for the fourth time, I finally found my piece of heaven. Villa Jacaranda is such a treat. Run by a small staff, Villa Jacarana is intimate, and stylish - so many personal touches. Fantastic service, lovely breakfasts (included). My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can not wait to return.

We've just returned from India and spent our last 6 days at Villa Jacaranda in Varkala. It was a superb way to end our trip. Ajay is the perfect host and his guest house is excellently run. We stayed in the top room which has a huge terrace with views of the sea. We are both bird lovers and every morning at breakfast, (brought to you on a tray), it was like sitting in your own aviary. One night there was a huge storm and it was great to sit under the awning on the terrace watching the rain come down. The room was always spotless and Ajay couldn't be more helpful with tips and guidance. The only slight downside could be the fact you had to get a rickshaw to the North Cliff in the evening if you wanted to eat at the restaurants over there but conversely it was also great being on the quieter side of the cliff away from the bustle. The villa is only a 5 min walk from the beach and there is an excellent restaurant right on the sand, (recommended by Ajay).

All in all we would thoroughly recommend Villa Jacaranda to anyone.
