Mummy Bamboo House
Ranked #11 of 99 Varkala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 March 2014

I stayed at Mummys Bamboo House on two occasions, first upon arrival in Kerala and then I wanted to come back and rest after two weeks ' on the road' . The family Sudhanen takes good care of you, and are always there to assist. Let's say that they make you feel at home. I paid 650 rupees for my single room. And it's good value for that kind of money. My room, on 2nd floor, facing the backside, was not the best room. I'd recommend that you ask for room facing the front.
As someone else wrote, basic bathroom with only cool water, which is perfectly ok. / Magnus

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the front. Maybe a bit livelier there, but the ground floor rooms have seating...

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.
