If you are seeking a place to stay where the prerequisites are: serenity, beauty, security and cleanliness, then make Villa Jacaranda your first choice. As a persnickety American accustomed to copious amounts of ice with drinks, constant air-con and cable TV, you can imagine that I was visiting India for the first time with trepidation. However, this wonderful place run...

We found the perfect beach holiday in Varkala. Villa Jacaranda was a hidden gem and the perfect end to our holiday in Kerala. Away from the main part of the resort, we loved Ajay's beautiful home. Ajay designed the house so that the rooms are private and not overlooked. They are all tastefully decorated. We had the best room! and...

I just wanted to share with you my wonderful experience at Villa Jacaranda during my stay in Varakala. This guest house is a pure jewel: by its location, the cleanliness of the rooms, the service and the kindness of the staff. Moreover, Ajay, the owner, is a very thoughtful host and gave us many useful advices on the area and...

If you are the traveler who is looking for an authentic, unspoiled locale in Kerala, then the South Cliff area of Varkala is the place for you. And if you are looking for a place to stay that is the antidote to the impersonal, mass-produced tourist resort, then the Villa Jacaranda guest house should be your first choice. If you...

Cosy and comfortable with a fantastic breakfast served on the veranda. Our 3 day stay was so relaxing and the villa is just a 2 minute walk from the beach. Ajay is a delight and his passion for collecting artwork, crafts and antiques spills elegantly into the decor. The laundry service was also impeccable as were the staff. Bliss bliss...

We treated ourselves to 3 days at Villa Jacaranda after 10 days of cyling in India. We arrived late at night and were told by the Autorickshaw driver that "South Cliff is bad", "No facilities, bad accommodation". How wrong he was. Ajay greeted us at the door and provided an excellent recommendation for dinner and a beer. The beach is...

Villa Jacaranda is a delightful place to stay. Ajay is the perfect host and his staff are excellant . We could not fault the cleanliness and service. Flowers and candles all around and breakfast on our private balcony added to a wonderful and relaxing five days stay and all just five minutes from the beach. Liz and Graham UK 2009

We were lucky enough to end our holiday with 3 nights at the Villa Jacaranda. Ajay was very welcoming and gave us lots of tips and advice on places to go and eat in the local area.
