If you're getting a tuk tuk from the bus or railway station, be aware that the drivers don't know where this is. The area is pronounced Toh-ta-da beach with no stress on any syllable. I got some of the way then had walk across concrete stepping stones and around to find it. Bus 29 goes into Kunnar. Indu and Pradeep...

We stayed in the bamboo cottage at the end of December for 4 nights. It is a lovely, clean and private space with beautifully designed features. There is plenty of sitting places throughout the grounds, whether in the garden, your room's sit-out, the common eating area, or the beach! They were able to accommodate our large group of travelers, coming...

My friends and I spent two days and one night at the blue mermaid homestay in search of a tranquil weekend. We found it here as Thottada beach was unspoilt and practically private. The staff was very helpful and the food delightful. The rooms and the gardens are both well kept. I highly recommend the blue mermaid homestay to those...

Stunning location right on a beautiful beach which was deserted most of the time. The owners were very welcoming and helpful - they booked some train tickets for us when we were having difficulties with it and arranged a trip to see a theyam which was real highlight of our time in India. Delicious food too!

Cannot fault this wonderful home stay. A warm welcome & spectacular hospitality, the food is unbelievably delicious. The location is incredible right on the beech. It's a bit secluded but that in itself is the charm (& everything is provided;you'll want for nothing except a good book!) Visits to Theyyams are arranged on request & well worth the early start.

A large group of us visited and had a wonderful time. The owners were extremely accommodating, went above and beyond in their service to us - very gracious. The food they cooked for us was wonderful and they modified it for our American taste buds. It was also beautiful grounds, and just a few steps to the beach.
