A wonderful family run homestay on Marari Beach. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves, and enjoy traditional Keralan home cooking. A peaceful retreat, and home from home. This beautiful family is dedicated to two things. First is Christianity and the second thing are their guests. They really care for them. Everything has been written down about this ideal place near the sea, about the excellent food and the clean and tidy rooms... it's all true. A similar things you can find maybe elsewhere in Kerala too. But you can't nowhere else find three careful brothers, Abilash with his wife Sini, Ajin and Anoop, their father Augustin and mother Mariamma, who are willing to satisfy every wish of the guests that staying with them. Nothing is too hard to do for them for the guests.

We spent 5 days as a family with 5 persons at Marari Sea Lap Beach Villas as part of our South India Round Trip. What we looked for: - prefer contact to local people, food, culture and nature rather than "Tourist Lifestyle" which is always top priority for all our vacations - family friendly location What we got: - excatly this :-) - we can recommend this great location to people who are looking for this way of holidays and enjoy what makes it unique: 1) The great and nice owner of this location which is family driven and authentic. 2) Food is very good and typical Indian style. 3) The location which is embedded into the nice, wide and not crowded Beach with direct neighbourhood to the sea. The nature which you will be part of and you can enjoy in its purest beautiful manner. It is proper/clean and has anything you need to stay inside - however: living is outside :-) Negative things? - for us actually none... but what people might miss is the availability of alternative offerings like discos, restaurants and other facilities like shopping opportunities...there is always a chance to book a Taxi etc. to reach those destinations. Again-we can really underline all those positive results already posted here and would definetly choose this location again! Thanks Andoop Augustine and Family for your hospitality!

We did not stay at Sea Lap but we went for dinner. I can't over state how delicious this food is. Very highly recommended in a rustic beautiful setting on the beach. The curry is fantastic. Service is relaxed and slow but that is the pace of life here.

We spent 3 nights at this beautiful homestay. The perfect place to unwind! Directly at the beach (with no access road) we did not wear shoes for 3 days. The owner and his family make sure you feel very comfortable. If you are looking for a real beach holiday this place is a must. We will surely be back!

We did not stay at Sea Lap but ate there twice. Food is excellent, best we have had on this trip. Fisherman's curry was very tasty as were the vegetable curry and dal makhani. Only wish we were staying longer to try some of the other dishes.

The location is amazing - you can see the waves rolling while sipping tea on the veranda. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The ambience with the lights and the hammock at night makes it very relaxing. Anoop was a gracious host and we felt very welcome at their home. We also had the opportunity to see them haul in the catch of the day and they made for us tasty crab curry. Thank you Sindhu chechi for the amazing food.

Nothing wow in this place…its like the numerous other resorts which are nearby. But yes , the beach is right there….a clean beach , a neat beach and the sand is good. Though google will say that there is a road which leads to this place….its completely wrong…You have to park your vehicle some 150 mts away and walk through the sand to reach the villa. If u land in the noon…u will have a tough time negotiating the stretch…better to keep dancing 😉 Food is OK , we also have an option to get it from outside. The owner and family also resides nearby and they do the cooking . So food which is made to order takes its own sweet time to get prepared. The place is frequented by many foreign travellers as they spend weeks in this place …cooling their heels , lapping up the tan , eating sea food and enjoying Gods’s Own country’s beaches… Rooms are quite spacious , but the washrooms are small….they cud have done some change on this … Good experience…recommended for a one time visit

Marari Sea Lap Villas - a place that surprises you and gives you more than you expect, in terms of the beautiful and serene moments as well as the unbeatable hospitality. It's right there on the beach and provides the perfect combination of privacy (almost feels like you have a private beach) and social fun (imagine playing football on the beach). Special thanks to Anoop and his team for going above and beyond with regards to ensuring our happiness and satisfaction - from helping us when the car's battery died down at the beach, to giving us the perfect rooms based on crowd and view and to helping us order food from a restaurant which was slightly far. They delivered on everything we asked for and some more. It will always hold a special place in our hearts

I definitely recommend this lovely, wonderful, and peaceful beach home stay ! Simple facility, well maintained, very nice staff ! Anoop and his family will take care of you, listen all your requests and provide any possible help. Good place to stay few days, to relax far away from crowded India. Excellent fresh fish cooked on BBQ every day. Excellent fresh coconut too. We also visited backwaters and coconut international museum. Thanks Anoop, greetings to your family !

I stayed at the Marari Sea Lap Villas on the weekend. It is right on the beach, only a hundred meters or so to the water. There are palm trees all around so plenty of shade. Hammocks and lounge chairs with cushions are available to relax. There is a table and chairs right outside the door of every room on the patio.  The room I had was air-conditioned and the unit worked well to cool the room, along with the ceiling fan. The room was clean, comfortable bed and working shower and toilet. You need to let the water run a bit before it gets warm for a shower. Two towels were provided but no soap. When I arrived there were some children playing outside. When I asked about the manager, the little girl went to fetch the key for me and let me in. She was very helpful and sweet. Her uncle appeared and helped me get situated and brought me a cold bottle of water which I appreciated on a hot day. I had an enjoyable stay, meeting a lot of the family and relaxing. On checkout day I wanted to remain a bit longer, and my colleagues staying at another location came down to the beach to visit. I asked the manager if we could get something to eat, and we were provided with some delicious fish and vegetable curry for lunch. Ajin allowed us to use the room for storing our bags and to use the bathroom even though I had already checked out. I had a very nice time at Sea Lap Villas, I really enjoyed talking to the kids and meeting the family. I felt really good being there. I see that some people have complained about the dogs; I only saw one dog and he was friendly to me. It's a good, basic accomodation to be sure, it's not luxury but the owner takes pride in his work and enjoys taking care of his guests. Next time I am in the area I really hope to stay here again. Thank you for everything.
