Made a last minute booking for a night stay. The place loudly carries its warmth, charm, attraction - all around. Mr.Madhavan who runs it - is true professional & humble. Just sit outside the room for hours or hit the beach within 28 steps(am serious !) - only an alarm or hunger can distract you. Otherwise, hours can fly - just doing nothing. Best place - have seen around with no commercial elements. The rooms are compact & suits a family of 3. And is well maintained. To sum it up, this Home, away from Home !

This is a house converted to hotel. This is illegal. They do not have any thing that inspires safety of the guests. No guest register, no identity check, no bills. No food, no hot water, We stayed there for a night - but was feeling very insecure.

We stayed in two rooms, one with balcony, and it was very nice! We were welcomed by the hosts and they were so nice! The guest house is situated close to the beach and restaurants and shops, so the location was perfect! We would definitely stay here again!

Probably the worst night in India because of very loud noise. The fan was like a plane taking off making it impossible to use. Turning the night into a sauna. Then from 7.00am our fellow neighbour's started to watch TV very loud and talk in front of our door. The room itself is clean and comfortable and owners are very nice... But it cannot save everything. Disappointed as expecting way better regarding the comments
