MY wife and I tend not to go back to the same place more than once, however, after a fabulous stay at the Kannur Beach House last year ,my wife and I were keen to return to the Kannur Beach House as soon as possible. This year did not dissapoint !
Given the previous reviews it is hard to review this place without repeating what has already been said - so apoloies for the repetition.
The setting is superb; overlooking backwaters and Thottada beach. You can literally walk for miles on the pristine beaches around KBH without seeing another tourist. There are also some lovely walks through the backwaters, where you can see local life and meet the friendly locals.
A highlight of the KBH is the communal dining and sharing tales with other tourists and, even more interestingly, having lengthy discussions with Rosi and the Nasir (who genuinely does know about almost everything).
The home-cooked food is simply sublime; with a variety of dishes served for all meals. When we (hopefully)return in the future I am going to try an tear myself from the beach and spend a few hours noting down how the dishes are prepared.
The accomodation is relatively simple (cold shower - or hot buckets showers) but perfectly fine.
During our stay a number of other repeat guests also stayed; there is a reason for this....it is (thanks to Rosi and Nasir a very special.
