A very warm welcome to India, water bottles already in the room on arrival, great if you just got off the plane. Convent for wlkong to the clifftop/ beach, Miskito nets in TT he rooms and generally quite clean. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere!

The Mummy bamboo house definitely is a superb place to stay whilst in Varkala. I think that on a three month trip through India and SE Asia, Mummy bamboo house offered the cleanest and most spacious room we've had for the 800R per night (high season). You get a private bathroom (no hot water though, but a cool refreshing shower) and a large balcony, plus a large bed with mosquito net. The guesthouse is owned by a really nice family and 'mummy' often cooks meals for her guests. Free autoricksjah pick-up from the station as well!

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed 4 nights . Room fair size with big bathroom . No hot water, but it was ok as it was so hot outside!We had fan room , so bit hot at night , but you can get an AC room if you pay the extra.
Near beach on top of the cliff with all restaurants and shops in the strip running along top of cliff , so fab to sit in one of the restaurants and watch the sun set. Kerala cafe did the most awesome tandoori fish and wonderful muesli fruit and curd for breakfast .
Rani is a very easy hostess and nothing is too much bother for her. She did washing for us and kept our stuff when we needed to leave it with her for a few days .
They hire out Scooters .
Rani cooked Thali for us one night. Really good. I would stay here again .

Big room (by indian standards) with rather big bathroom and a balconie. No hot water. Wifi is very stable with good internet speed. Owners are really friendly and helpful. Located just a minute's walk from the "beach". The place is pretty quiet, apart from the random loud "gunshot" noises they make to scare off the birds.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and were made to feel like part of the family, our room was very clean and tidy and very spacious and bright! We had a legendary cooking lesson from Rhani which was absolutely spectacular where we made approximately 10 vegetarian dishes and ate off banana leaves, she is such an incredible lady and the food was beyond anything we could have imagined, this place is also very cheap and in a great location for Varkala North Cliff.Thankyou!!!
