I had initially booked a sea-facing room in the guesthouse which was supposed to be on the 1st floor as the got later when i reached. But the sea view was getting hindered due to coconut trees. So I asked the owner if the room could be upgraded. The owner was very humble and charged me a reasonable amount for the same considering I was his guest for 2 days. The view from the top room was splendid and the room had a private balcony too which was an add-on. The guest house is really close to the beach but roughly 1km from Varkala cliff where the major restaurants are located. The distance is walkable though. The breakfast was average, and bathroom provided warm/hot water running all the time. Really enjoyed the stay.
