First of all, Lalith and his family are superb hosts. They're very accommodating and helpful. Their dog Rexy is adorable and such a joy to have around. She just waits on you for company. She is curious yet does not cross boundaries with those uncomfortable with dogs.
They have two ground floor rooms easily accessible for wheelchairs as there are no steps from the entrance to the room or the attached toilets. My mom praises this.
The place is clean & food is definitely value for money. We tried two other eateries and they cannot beat Birdhouse. You will be asking for second or even third serving. My only gripe is the coffee – it is somewhat bland.
The face of house is very pleasant and that speaks for your stay: cozy, quiet and relaxing. Don't forget to have a sip of your favorite drink on the terrace under stars – a very sedative atmosphere indeed. The huge terrace is very practical for beach goers as this means dry pants before your departure.
The hosts helped my family prepare a surprise birthday dinner for me and it was one of the most memorable.
We will be seeing Lalith and family next year definitely if not sooner.
