Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

We were in varkala for 4 days and left this place after 2 nights after finding accommodation nearby for less than half the price with an uninterrupted sea view and a garden (Prasanthi Cliff).
The owners seem very nice and do go out of their way to help. The rooms were also cleaned daily. However the location is a bit hidden in between other buildings/bars, and the only place you can see the sea is on the rooftop balcony...and it is a glimpse between rooftops. The rooms are also quite dark and not overly spacious.
As we are 2 girls in our 20s we are not overly picky/snobbish about our accommodation, having said that, after speaking to other people staying in varkala at the same time, and seeing lots of other places, we felt that the price was pretty extortionate for the standard of accommodation and the time of year. We were charged 1900 rupees plus 15% tax. The breakfast was nice, but you can get an identical breakfast in any of the restaurants for around 200 rupees (pancakes, tea/coffee and fresh juice). The place we moved to had bigger, lighter rooms with a mosquito net and a completely uninterrupted sea view and was a third of the price, and was the most expensive price we had been asked after looking in 4 other places.
If we had just stayed at the cliff lounge for 2 nights and then left varkala this review may have been more favourable, it's just a shame that the prices are so disproportionate to all the other accommodation round about.
Please shop around when you get to varkala as there is so much choice.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 5 nights over from end of Dec to beginning of January and it's a really ace place. Nitheesh met us at the station so it was really easy to get there, and he was really helpful when we extended our stay. Perfectly located right in the centre of Varkala, a few minutes to the beach but set back enough to have a chilled out atmosphere. Nitheesh and Julie were great, and organised us trips out of town as well as recommending great restaurants in Varkala. Delicious fruit salad for breakfast every day on their lovely terrace - would definitely stay there again next time we're in Varkala.

Very nice place with clean spacey rooms, at reasonable prices. The german indian couple running the place are helpful, and offers good service and nice recommendations.
The guesthouse lies in a little garden away from noise, and the rooms feels chill during nighttime.

Niteesh, Julie and family were such lovely, welcoming people who went out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay comfortable. Clean and tidy rooms, thoughtfully decorated with hot water and comfortable beds. Spacious balcony with views to the sea. Lovely breakfast - great pancakes and homemade papaya jam! A perfect location set just behind the Tibetan Market. A two minute walk to the beach. We had a room with balcony and sea views, would recommend one of these rooms, ideally. We will certainly return to stay with these guys on a return trip. Excellent value for money. Thank you we loved every minute x
