We were planning to stay only 3 nights but stayed 5. Our room was spacious , clean and with a private balcony. Breakfast was included ( fruit salad, coffe, nice omelette or really good banana honey pancake) and we could choose where to have it, back garden, front garden or at our balcony. 5 minutes walking to the seafront and 5 more to the stairway to enter the beach below the northern cliff. All staff were very friendly , we would come back any time, we really had a peaceful stay.
Really lovely guesthouse. Room, bathroom and balcony all spacious. Very clean inside. Bed a bit hard. Run by two lovely (shy) brothers who were really helpful and thoughtful. Location is good - at the quieter end of the strip and nearer the nice beach so it's really peaceful and convenient for sea, showers after, food, etc. Also felt like you got less ppl trying to sell you stuff at this end, mainly because fewer stalls.
I stayed a couple of nights. The rooms are very good and clean. The staff is very friendly, they helped us in every possible way. The breakfast was excellent!
The only problem was de front desk. almost every time I needed someone to help me with something or just leave the keys, there was no one there. It sometimes made me wonder about security, but nothing happened when I was there.
Nice rooms, new beds and linen, amazing garden, but, most important thing, the manager is a very nice, polite, calm and helpfull person. There is also a shop where you can rent scooter and buy whatever you need. They prepare whatever you need to eat or drink at any time of the day and the night
The only little problem is the noise created by local guys gathering at night and shouting and fighting. But generally, and compared with other area in Varkala, the place is quiet and you can sleep well.
I had a ground floor room, non AC, but with some sea view... I had booked for 5 days and stayed one week. A clean big room with your own little terrace, a good breakfast with fresh fruit salad, a friendly staff ready to help you... What else could you need in Varkala? The garden is very well kept and the price is correct, I paid 1200 rupees a night including taxes and breakfast in early january 2016.
