Had a fantastic stay at the Baycliff resort. The property is pretty unique with two cottages set out on a large and green property right on the sea front. The cottages are lovely and very thoughtfully finished, and the balconies and hammocks have a gorgeous view. The setting is quiet, beautiful and relaxing. It's right on the cliff path which connects you to the main Varkala town in about 30 minutes, or Kapil beach if you walk the other direction. The owner Jasar is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the area giving us lots of good advice, and making bookings for everything from yoga classes to train tickets up to Kochi for us. He also helped us immensely when one of our group fell sick. We rented a scooter one of the days to explore the area a bit, which we would

An ideal place for couple since it is located a bit away from Varkala beach and touristic area. A piece of land with two bungalow villas surrounded by palm trees. The only drawback is that is located between a Mosque and a Temple which ends up being a bit disturbing waking you up in the middle of the night.

Hi Elpida, I would like to thank you for staying with us & rating us high. As you may already know, besides being a tourist friendly country, India is also a religious country with lots of diverse religions & worshipping places all over. And it is not true that my property is just in the middle of a temple & a mosque. On some special festival occasions they would use the loud speakers in the early mornings. Since it is a religious matter I cannot interfere in it. It is for the government to take necessary actions to regulate sound pollution by restricting the use of loud speakers, Hope you both had a wonderful stay with us. You are always welcome back. Best wishes...

We stayed in Bay Cliff Resort this February. Arrived just for few days but immedeately fell in love with the place. The location is ideal and the cottage nicely done, comfortable and spacious. Jasar is a great host and will do his best to make you feel like home. The breakfast is so delicious and home made, served fresh just in front of the ocean! We would have loved to stay longer! This place is in my heart and i will definitely go there again.

My husband and I rented one of these villas in March, 2015 and absolutely loved the place. Location, location, location! - The villas are situated in a large, secluded coconut grove at Odayem, which is north of Papanasanam Beach. The property is really lovely - hammocks and swings hang between the palm trees, there's a little hut overlooking the sea that we used for morning yoga sessions. At the bottom of the cliff upon which the property is located, there is a small beach that's perfect for swimming. The path down to the beach is kind of hidden, so there's hardly ever anyone here. (We were there a week and never saw another soul on this beach.) The property is about a 25 minute walk along the sea-side promenade to the Papanasanam Beach and the shops, restaurants, and

We arrived at Bay Cliff Resort after a horrible night at Varkala Bamboo village. Bay Cliff resort is a wonderful place to stay in Varkala. Clean and spacious cottages with all the amenities. Good homemade breakfast. The owner and the stuff friendly and really helpful. And all that under coconut trees,with see view, amazing sunsets, peacefulness. Perfect place to relax. It takes a little while to walk to the nearest restaurant and to a beach but that didn't bother us at all (plus that rickshaws can be arranged by the stuff). We stayed there only 2 nights but we really wished that we had find the place earlier and spend more days there. More than highly recommended!
