Stayed 4 days in the middle of Febr. 2013 without any complaints. Personally collected by Shirley in the morning. She also joined me to the Airport when I left.

Had a huge clean room with double bed, big toilet, shower, ceiling fan, refrigerator and balcony for a fair price compared with many of the other places in the area. Almost a perfect location a short walk only from/to the Lighthouse beach.

The staff was friendly and helpful but the place itself was nothing special to write about except the simple breakfast which was included in my internet booking and which I enjoyed every morning on the balcony. Especially the masala omelet and a glass of freshly squeezed fruit juice mixed with little ice. Be aware of the many greedy craws if you eat on the balcony. One morning, I lost most of my omelet and another day sudddenly a dead fish came down from the heaven and landed in front of me on the table. A friendly cat and few squirrels kept my company.

A couple of times when we had power cut, the ice in the refrigerator melted and ran out on the floor in the room. And after some rain showers the floor outside and behind my room was covered by water for a long time before it was removed.

A more suitable name would be Shirley's Guest House since there is no restaurant available. However it does'nt matter due to the many interesting and attractive eating places in the area.

Shirley provided transport by car to and from the Airport for Rs. 650/- each way.

Recommended for a fair price.

Room Tip: Don't know.

Not on the beach, but the beach is only a 3 minute walk away. Located in a small street with little traffic. Rooms are cheap here - which is a bit surprising, as everything else in Kovalam is a bit overpriced (a short Richshaw trip here is 50 Rs. - elsewhere in Kerala it's 15 Rs.)

Large rooms with balcony, nice beds, friendly and helpful service, rooms cleaned every other day, hot water is coming from solar heating so the water in the morning is a bit cold, WiFi available (though blocked most of the time I was there), simple but good breakfast (delivered to your room at the time you require between 0730 and 1000 - however my breakfast was never served on time during the 7 days I stayed here).

There is a hotel cat (so if you are allergic to cats - beware).

The reception is not open 24/7. So agree beforehand on your check out time.

Highly recommended. Just remember to order breakfast ½-1 hour before your want it (minor issue, really).
