I recently stayed at Katrina's homestay with my mom and partner and we had a marvelous time! Katrina was very welcoming and so helpful sharing lots of knowledge about Varkala for exploration and eating our two favorites! Their home is spectacular & full of color and any amenity you might need. We had breakfast each morning and highly recommend the cheese omelette and homemade bread, plus some basil from her impressive garden! The house is perfect walking distance to the beach & main strip along the cliff. We really enjoyed our stay and would be happy to come back!
