Clean and simple, nice and quiet and safe place in good location. Is a 20 meter from North Cliff, next to a nice restaurantes and little shop. Nice garden and good wifi connection. Naveen, the owner, is always very aware.

This is a great place!!! Clean, comfortable, lovely furnished, and feels like home! The owner Navin is a very nice helpful guy! It's very central located (beautiful view of the sea) but still quiet and private! There is filtered water , clean towels and the room is cleaned daily. I would recommend it for any type of traveler !!

Best hotel I've stayed in so far during my trip, the rooms are very clean, comfortable and for the price excellent value for money. The owner was always helpful, never tried to sell me anything, just a lovely guy who runs a great guesthouse. Right by the beach, can't recommend it enough!

Naveen is one of the nicest and most helpful people we have met in India! His place is very tidy, the rooms comfortable and people that stay there usually hang out on the several balconies. The perfect atmosphere if you want to relax and enjoy life in Varkala!!
