We got to know Dagmar and Juergen during our travels through India and we had the chance to stay at their Beachcastle twice. They are both very hospitable and we got a warm welcome. Just be prepared that you might get a warm welcome by their dogs as well. ;-) They are just lovely and if you want they are happy to accompany you on the way to the almost private beach. (just 5 mins. walk) The accomodation is very well organized, clean, beautiful decorated and seems a little bit like a small German island in the middle of rural India. ;-) Btw: The paintings at the outside wall have been created by former guests and friends of them.
If you are looking for a place to relax for a couple of days (e.g. at the pool) this is your choice. Juergen and Dagmar can also arrange sightseeing tours in the countryside (e.g. Auroville, Pondicherry or Mahabalipuram).
