Mummy Bamboo House
Ranked #25 of 100 Varkala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 September 2017

I've stayed twice at Mummy Bamboo House, and both times it was home to my best memories of India. The whole family is kind and generous, and the rooms are lovely, with great balconies, and close proximity to everything. Make sure you enjoy the foot. Fish curry that will blow you away and delightful coconut pancakes for breakfast. Mummy and her whole family are the best! I'll be back!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are the best if you don't need AC!

Very good location - and very good value for money! Rooms are small, but one only sleeps there anyway! There are rooms on the botton floor with outdorr seating 'terraces', and on second floor theer are a couple of rooms with balconies.
This was my second stay at Mummys, and I'll definately come back!

Stayed 4 nights in a fan room on the second floor. Loved my balcony and hammock. The hot water didn't work the first two days for some reason, but the last two days. At the end off the north cliff, with a perfect location just a few steps to some off the stairs leading down to the beach and the restaurants on the cliff.

Possibility to order food/drinks and more than 1 speed on the fan would had been a plus, but a small thing in the big pic.

The rooms are cheap, simple, nice and clean. I spent 3 nights in this homestay and enjoyed sitting on the veranda. It is located 2 minutes walk from the cliff, which is perfect to reach everything.
The hosts are very friendly and I had lots of good chats with them!
