A real gem. Excellent location, close to the cliff but nice and quiet. Characterful decor, comfy beds, mosquitoe nets and hot water. The staff were amazingly helpful and entertaining and had great local knowledge. A little slice of Varkala. I'll be back.

Do you still need help??? The best way to do it is to take a bus or taxi to Varkala. Then, get an auto to take you to MK Gardens. Just tell them where you're going. They know exactly where it is! Or have the address on hand.
