I highly recommend the Ocean Hues Beach House. The owner of Ocean Hues, Dr. Kannan is very involved with the day to day running of the Beach House. He was kind and helpful in making my reservations and came to see me each day of my stay to ensure I was satisfied with the accommodations. The house sits in a quiet area of a long beach and consists of two en-suite bedrooms, a shared living room and outdoor dining area and porch. The upstairs bedroom was large with a balcony that had a lovely view of the beach through the coconut trees, and offered a cool ocean breeze through the windows at night. The downstairs bedroom was also quite large and opened to the dining area and lower porch where there was a walk way down to the beach. The hosts of Ocean Hues, Mr.Sunder Reddy and Mr. Chandru made my stay wonderful. Mr. Reddy is an amazing chef; each dish he prepared was perfectly seasoned so you could taste and enjoy the spices of India while still tasting the flavor of the vegetables and other ingredients in the dish. I stayed at 3 hotels during my trip and Ocean Hues had, without question, the best food of all of them. Mr. Chandru, who assisted Mr. Reddy kept the house immaculately clean and he made certain the area was secure at night giving you a good feeling of safety. Mr. Reddy was also very helpful in a number of other ways such as securing transportation, suggesting shopping locations in town and assisting me in exchanging money. I wish to thank Mr. Reddy, Mr. Chandru and Dr. Kannan for a most pleasant stay at Ocean Hues.

Room Tip: The upstairs suite is lovely and the deck chairs on the balcony invite you to pour yourself a cool d...

I can't imagine any better than this. Loved the location, the room, the view, the balcony, the beach, the food. Reddy does a fantastic job with the help of his right hand man, Chandru.
I would come back here in a heartbeat.

No guest house could possibly come close to the experience here. Totally worth the cost and probably the best beach to go swimming ( good chance you'll have dolphin for company).

The tastefully done up house has all the luxuries you can ask for. Great place to relax with a book-decent collection provided.

Mr Reddy and Chandru make you feel at home. Breakfast and dinner served outside was awesome. Great food and outstanding service. A perfect annual vacation for the family.

Room Tip: Room upstairs to enjoy the breeze and view.

This house is fantastic! Right on a deserted very clean beach. We had the enormous upstairs room with balcony overlooking the ocean - breeze at night and crashing waves. Reddy cooked the most amazing meals - so delicious and enormous quantity - no good if you are on a calorie controlled diet! Chandru was always there to assist - always on the run. Two brilliant people to attend to every need. Dr Suresh, owner, came to see us whilst we were there, to make sure everything was in order - which of course it was. Not our last visit here.

Room Tip: Upstairs room is the best.

We came here for 7 stays chill out having visited the bustling cities of Bangalore, Mysore and Mangalore, and it was more than a chill out. The setting is perfect, the cleanest beach we've seen in Southern India and very quiet, only the waves and the call of birds. Mr Reddy cooked us some fantastic meals all taken on the terrace overlooking the beach and sea. The bedroom upstairs is very comfortable and has a large balcony. Often while having breakfast we spotted Dolphins and watched the local fishermen going back and forth to their village at the end of the beach. The beach is just a few steps and we spent the whole week barefoot, swimming, reading and walking along it. Hardly a person in sight and the swimming is very safe though better in the morning as after noon the breeze comes up and the sea is a little rougher.

Room Tip: Stay in the upstairs room if just a couple.

We came to Ocean Hues as our "cool out and adjust" first stop in India after flight from Chicago-Amsterdam-Mumbai-Callicut. It was a great way to re-sync or internal body clocks and gut! The beach was beautiful, the food was incredible (we probably gained a few pounds after our six night stay), and everyone was very friendly. We loved walks on the beach, swimming in the morning and evening light, lighting blessing lamp at the small shrine in the cave adjacent to the property, reading and writing. Visitors should know that this place is a bumpy 10-mins from the highway and another 15-mins into Kannur City, so plan to spend your time away from town unless you need to be back in crowded noisy surroundings for some reason! Price is a bit high, but this includes 3 LARGE meals and all taxes.

Room Tip: upstairs has balcony and a little more privacy.
