Had an amazing stay at this quaint homestay with basic amenities by a beach near Kannur. The hosts, Rosi and Nazir are extremely gracious and helpful and made us feel at home. The food was out of the world with a large spread of dishes from the local cuisine including appam and stew, biryani, beef and a whole lot of seafood. The rooms are clean, and spacious and overlooked the beach and one can wake up and go to sleep with the sound of waves crashing. The beach is barely 5 minute walk from the property and one can spend hours without being disturbed. This is a very good place for birdwatching as well with multiple habitats including the quiet beach attracting shorebirds, plantations, groves and backwater. Vacationers interested in sightseeing can easily hire an auto or a car for…
This is a simple beach house property that's unusual and provides you a memorable experience. The location is beautiful, surrounded by backwaters,greenery and a beach thats so clean and deserted.The hosts Nazir and Rozi are very kind and helpful.They ensure that you relish some native North Kerala cuisine as part of your breakfast and dinner package cooked in their kitchen,and we all just loved it. Overall,an excellent property to spend some good time with your family and friends,if you're someone who is looking for a simple beach house stay in North Kerala.
A truly wonderful experience. Very relaxing, amazing views and wonderful caring kind hosts, we would 100% recommend if you’re looking for a peaceful, tranquil stay and an authentic Indian experience. Nice bakery is a short walk away and hosts made getting taxis, payment and other odd jobs very easy.
A place where I would like to visit many times over the course of my life. A place where also I would like to spend the last few days of my life (whenever that happens :) ) - propped on some pillows, amongst the palms trees and the birds with the sight of the ocean and the creek, and the sun setting beautifully every evening in front of me. A lovely family runs the place. Quaint locality - Thottada in the bustling (but not without character) town of Kannur. Delectable Malabar / Mappila cuisine. Its an absolute perfect concoction of a beautiful place run by lovely hosts, great culture and cuisine in the local area.
Exactly a year later, it remains as pristine as ever with a new road link to the island via a new bridge. Private beach experience will stay with u forever. Staff as helpful and courteous as ever. Mr Raveendran, the manager went out of the way to ensure we were comfortable throughout our short stay. There is a kucha road all the way upto Navy territory which is a good one way walk, and the return could be done via the beach. Amazing exercise that is. Overall, as amazing an experience as it was last time.
Our third visit to this beautiful island.Very beautiful place and beach it's different experience, one side sea other side kayal. After lock down our first tripe. Neat and clean room, very tasty sea foods and nice dealings.
Kannur Beach House is an amazing place to stay, great food and really nice rooms. The host family who runs the place is so warm and welcoming. And they make sure everything's good, so you can be totally relaxed and enjoy your stay. The people in this place is everything, they made me feel like I belonged there, that I was home. We also had some really good conversations. Along with taking a walk at the beautiful beaches, watching the sunsets, enjoying the view from your room or the hammocks with some coconut at your side. This place is really something special!
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 school age kids) is on a sabbatical / world schooling year and we stayed with Rosi and Nazir for 10 amazing nights in Jan 2020. We were first timers and met other guests who have come back again and again, and we now understand why. It’s an incredible location in a small village in northern Kerala, with pristine, empty beaches and nearby coves. Well worth the 5-6 hour train ride north from Kochi (there is also an airport in Kannur). Homemade breakfasts and dinners are superb, healthy buffets with a variety of traditional and creative dishes. Every meal felt like a special occasion. We stayed in a simple, cozy room on the top floor with a double bed, single bed & attached bathroom about 15 meters behind the front rooms, with sea & sunset views from…
So many good things to say about my stay here it's impossible to fit it into just one review. Let's start with the beautiful location: only a two-minute walk to the gorgeous beach which is perfect for swimming- warm clean water that you won't want to get out of. Even if you decide to stay at the house there is a wonderful view of the water and scenery which you can enjoy while relaxing in a comfy hammock. The food: every meal was delicious, my personal favorite was breakfast. But most importantly, the family running the homestay: some of the kindest people you will ever meet. I loved the conversations we would have or how I would feel right at home when I was there. I am so thankful to have been able to stay here and met such great people :-)))))))))
If you want a place to relax, this is the place. The view from the rooms are amazing and wonderfull, the staff super friendly and welcoming. Lying in a hammock reading and listening the ocean and the waves splashing is like being in heaven. The beach is breathtaking and to take a walk along the water you will ba as calm as you can be. Thank you for a remarkable stay
