Clean and comfortable Clean and comfortable

by Salima V on December 29, 2016

We stayed as a group of four friends over Christmas. The homestay is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Rose is a kind and helpful host, organising some express laundry for us and generally looking after us well. The location is great, in the peaceful south cliff area, near some good restaurants (Green Pepper for breakfast and Marina Bay for dinner) and some steps down to the beach, which is cleaner and quieter than the north cliff area. It was pretty hot whilst we were there so the only thing we missed was air conditioning-- but I would still highly recommend the homestay.

Recommended! Beautiful rooms, large balcony, very clean, friendly and helpful owner. Recommended! Beautiful rooms, large balcony, very clean, friendly and helpful owner.

We really enjoyed our stay in Gumnut Beach House. Rose is friendly, helpful and down to earth. The beach house is located at the more peaceful and relaxed south cliff, away from the hassle of touristy shops at the north cliff. Restaurants and beach are easily accessible by foot or rickshaw. Perfect place to stay if you want to rent surfboards at the (neighbouring) soul and surf. There is a kitchenette and filtered water is provided.

Ex-pat Aussie Rose runs a great homestay a very short walk from the much quieter south cliff in Varkala. We had a very spacious room for a family of 4. It was spotlessly clean, airy and mosquito free during the 4 nights we were there. An "en-suite" balcony was a great place to read and relax away from the heat of the day. Rose was only too happy to show us around town, recommend places to eat and help us with our onward travel plans. There's a basic but adequate kitchen perfect for simple vegetarian meals too. A great place to recharge your batteries. Highly recommended.

Such a clean, peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Host is incredible and very accommodating. A great escape from the hectic mainbeach in Varkala and offers much more privacy. A small kitchenette is available for use. Highly recommended.

The perfect homestay by the beach The perfect homestay by the beach

by Sha_Blore on June 6, 2016

Away from all the commercial "touristy" spaces, located close to the beautiful and ancient Janardhana Swamy temple and yet just 200 metres from the main beach. Run by Rose and her husband, I had almost all of my interactions with the very thoughtful and charming, Rose, an Australian who has made Varkala her home for very many years. The place was spotless clean and I never for once missed my bed back home. And that's rare. Every little thing has been thought about. You can see it in the little notes left everywhere for your help. With a self-catering guest kitchen, a mini library, a whole lot of surfer magazines and a balcony from where you can see a bit of beach, it was everything we needed for this beach holiday. The feeling of many a traveler having passed by here, leaving a book behind and adding to the mini-library or to surf the winter waves is there. I found myself carrying back a book I picked up to read just the second last day of my stay there. She said keep it just dismissing the whole thing as nothing to be given too much thought about. Lovely place and warm memories all in all.

Demo Trip Ask for one with the balcony

Demo Trip Do ask for a room with a balcony if available. Great place to unwind with friends and family.

Demo Trip The music from a nearby temple which was having a festival was quite loud, although it only lasted a few days and did not stop me enjoying my stay. I would recommend earplugs if one is to travel at festival time.

Demo Trip Two rooms avail on ground floor. One big family room up on the 3rd/top floor with big open balcony.
