We arrived at Marari beach jan 2011 expecting it to be secluded, but for there to be some accommodation choices. When we got there we realised it is really quite remote and there are three choices: 1. Stay in a five star resort 2. Mid range bungalows 3. Austins home stay. We went for the latter because we had no choice due to availability of the bungalows and extortionate prices of the resorts. BUT we were absolutely delighted by how welcoming Austin (an english teacher) and his wife were. It is a small, basic block, split into two rooms with en suites, and a small veranda. There is also a roof where you can have a beer. At the time of visit Jan 2011, there were no shops, pharmacies, Internet cafes in the area or any individual restaurants. We ate all our food at another hostel about a ten minute walk up the road. Austins brother took us on some excellent tours. We would recommend this if you are looking for back to basics non touristy coastline and getting to know and supporting a family who are starting a new business.
