Located in a quiet place, a short walk away from the beach, this property is quite beautifully maintained, and immediately gives homely vibes. Jai was a wonderful host and every conversation with him was a charm. The breakfast is wholesome and very tasty. One small note, when we stayed, no food other than breakfast was available. Would be great if some (even if limited) options are made available for lunch or dinner.

I visited Varkala in October 2022 and stayed in this amazing place. Villa Jacaranda is a very comfortable place to stay. We had booked the room with balcony and sea view facing. The place is well maintained and the host is very friendly and helpful in all possible ways. We were hosted by Jayadeep. The place offers some really wholesome breakfast. Jayadeep suggested us cafés and things to do and helped us plan our days. He was very kind in helping us rent scooters and even called for cabs and tuktuk as per our recruitment. The place is in very close proximity to the beach. It’s just a road walk down. I highly recommend Villa Jacaranda for stay in Varkala.

Our recent and short stay at Villa Jacaranda was all things lovely. The room on the second floor was spacious and warm. Bonus was a large terrace filled with plants and views of the sea. The villa is decorated tastefully and Ajay, Jai and their team of the house staff were kind and helpful at all times. The house also has a resident pooch! A sweet and very shy cocker spaniel, Romy. We felt the best part is the location, tucked away in the south cliff and far from the hustle and bustle of the north cliff, this place is a find.

It fills me with joy to read our happy guests taking the time and trouble to share their satisfaction about their time spent at Villa Jacaranda here and on other fora. It’s so kind of you, my dear guest, because this is the best way to take the “hidden” away from the beautiful epithet you have bestowed upon us. All of us at villajacarandavarkala thank you for your lovely review. Come back soon!

Villa Jacaranda built and owned by Ajay is an absolute delight on the south cliff in Varkala town. The rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. Attention to detail is wonderful from the carefully chosen furniture, pretty bed linen, complimentary toiletries and clean white towels. The garden is gorgeous in a central courtyard. Staff are caring and attentive. Ajay is a wonderful host yet unobtrusive and very knowledgeable if help is needed. Your welcome will be warm and your stay guaranteed to be very happy. If a little piece of paradise is what you are looking for amidst all the hustle and bustle of the town, then this is it.

Great place to stay with an attentive and friendly host. I stayed at the room with the terrace garden. Will definitely stay again. You can take surfing lessons at "Surf and Soul" across the street. Good restaurants near heli-pad.

Ajay and staff made us feel like family immediately. Communications from the outset were spot on, transport organised from airport was super efficient and as expected. Villa Jacaranda is a very attractive property, we stayed in room 4 with the roof terrace and found the spacious room comfortable and perfect for our stay. Decent air con and generous bathroom. Breakfast on the terrace was served perfectly, was delicious and more than we could manage. The beach is a short walk and North Cliff can easily be reached on foot or by tuk tuk, which are parked pretty much outside the villa, so getting back of an evening is easy. Although our stay coincided with recent global issues, we found the villa a perfect haven and intend to return once the current crisis has improved.

Thank you, dear guests, this makes for such uplifting reading at a time when the villa is unusually silent, incredibly empty. We are delighted we could provide you with a place you enjoyed spending time in. And after your afternoon spent at the beach, a place you looked forward to returning to. We are happy to welcome you back whenever you like. Stay well!

We really loved this place. A warm welcome from all the staff, the dog and of course Ajay. We had a spacious room on the ground floor and our terrace led out to the beautiful garden. Each morning we were met with birdsong, sunshine and a fabulous breakfast exquisitely served. The location is very good. Away from the more tourist part of the shore yet within easy reach of a lovely beach and great seafood restaurants. We walked into Varkela town which is worth a visit and is far removed from the more touristy coast. Near to the villa there are a number of shops including 'Asparagus' which will make up clothes from locally woven materials. Ajay shared his local knowledge and made our stay very special.He organised taxis for us from the airport and again onto our next stop.

Dear Hilary, I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond but there were extenuating circumstances - please excuse me. The memory of your stay however remains with us - your appreciation of the big and small things in and around the guesthouse, the delight you took in the bedlinen… Sadly “Asparagus” is no longer with us. But there are others who are making a comeback to provide excellent artisanal products to visitors to Varkala. Thank you and please grace us with your presence again - we look forward to your return.
