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.
