Angie and Den provided a perfect base for our holiday in Kovalam and were very helpful in organising day tours and car hire. The 2 bedroom apartment is beautifully maintained, is very quiet and private, yet just some few minutes rickshaw ride from the beachfront and restaurants. Highly recommended!
