This place is a little slice of heaven on earth. I had the good fortune of staying here for a week. The place is so homely and luxurious at the same time. If youre looking for a quiet place by the sea, I highly recommend this place. It is the perfect refresh button for you. Indu's home cooked meals are guarenteed to soothe all your senses. You can just walk out onto the private beach, or relax on the hammocks in the luscious green gardens outside your rooms. I left feeling like it was all a dream! Thank you for this incredibly soothing experience that the Blue Mermaid Home Stay is! So grateful, I will definitely be coming back!

Very friendly and warm hearted hosts. The homestay is next to the beautiful beach where you can swim. and there are not a lot of people. The kerala home cooked food is very delicious! There was every day something new on the table. Its very calm and perfect to relax here.

We had such a lovely time at Indu and Pradeeps Homestay! It is a true homestay, the lovely family takes such good care! We stayed at the lovely beachfront cottage - sitting on the veranda and looking out at the ocean - perfect. The amazing food - on request we got dinner as well - really was uplifting. Indu organised a lovely Ayurvedic massage as well as a Theyyam visit - short, as it was the rainy season. The beach is - at least in the rainy season - all yours. We can highly recommend a stay with these lovely people on a wonderful property.

Blue Marmaid is an incredible place and one of my favorite places on Earth. I have been to Blue Mermaid in 2011 and Pradeep and Indu have done an incredible development and turned the place into a paradise. I cannot describe how hospitable, caring and nice the hosts are. You will remember the food at that place until the rest of your life, it is excellent and homemade. It is an absolute hidden gem because it is rare to find an empty beach like this anywhere in India. The rooms, the view, the food, the beach, the service and hospitality is perfect! This is an absolute must - visit, hidden gem, which you should put on your bucket list!

This is a beautiful place, next to a quiet beach, set in a lovely garden with the friendliest people you can imagine. Indu and Pradeep were very nice and helpful. Thanks to their help we could attend an authentic theyyam ceremony in a village after midnight. The food was delicious with great variety every day. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for 4 nights. The welcoming of Hindu, his husband and his daughter was perfect and we felt all the time at home with them, they cook their food by their own and it's the better taste of Kerala we have had so far, you can watch the sea from the apartment (and furthermore you can 'feel' it by earing the sound of waves) and you can reach the beach, wich seems to be like a private beach because it's not crowded at all (!!), very easily, there's also a backwater where you can admire a beautiful nature. We reccomand it to everyone!

The Blue Mermaid is one of the best homestays in India. Indu and Pradeep are phenomenal hosts and their attention to detail, comfort and experience were beyond our expectations. The food was creative and delicious- and the service was excellent. We learned so much about the area and region and loved the beach. Our family so appreciated our stay. We will be back!

Blue Mermaid was the perfect landing place to relax, and unwind in a coconut grove by a pristine tropical beach. We felt instantly welcomed into the home of Indu and Pradeep, who did everything to make sure we were comfortable, served fabulous fresh home cooked food and were incredibly helpful in making sure we arrived safely and organised local trips and our onward journey. Rooms are clean and comfortable with fan and aircon and you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Lots of their guests come back year after year and we can totally see why.

This place is one of the jewels in the world. Having a privileged life, where my husband and I have had many opportunities to travel, we visited this place all the way back in 2013, and still it is memorable in our minds. We were travelling India, before visiting Southern Africa, and stayed longer than we expected. The location is great for a get-away, and Indu, was an amazing host. I had my birthday here and she even went out to get wine and a cake for me. She made us so welcome...a place you should not miss on your trip.

This homestay was phenomenal! This was my second stay here( 10 days in December 2015- January 2016 and 2 weeks in February 2020)The owners and staff treated us like family. They were so hospitable and kind. The food was delicious and full of flavor. They accommodated our spice levels and likes. Fresh juice, fruit and several breakfast options were served every morning. They had chicken, fresh fish, veg options and traditional Indian dishes for dinner. The homestay was also very clean. The rooms and gardens were beautiful and well taken care of with so much care and love. Our backyard was a beach with amazing sunrises and sunsets. If you want an amazing Ayurvedic massage/treatment experience, ask for Arjun. He and his wife, Stephanie, are a great team. They explain all of the treatments/massages and charge very fair prices. I have had many massages over the years and this one topped them all! Arjun was very professional with fluid strokes and an energy that can’t be explained in words.... you must experience it for yourself! Indu, the homestay owner, arranged a rickshaw to and from their Ayurveda center. The ride costed 150 rupees($2) each way and was only a few minutes from the homestay. He offers a combination of massages, a form of stretching before the massage (which loosened the muscles and made the massage so much better), reflexology and several other options. Ask to see their menu. Arjun and Stephanie also offer tour packages pertaining to cultural, shopping and nature experiences. My friend and I did the shopping and cultural tours. We shopped several jewelry and fabric stores. We connected with an up and coming local artist and purchased a couple of art pieces that were shipped back home(USA).We ran out of time before we could do the nature and hiking tour. They catered the tour to our interests. It was great to have a local who was able to give history and context to deepen our experience in India! We were able to go into Kannur to eat, shop, experience a thayyem, see temples, get massages and then come back to the quiet beauty of the Blue Mermaid. It was the best of everything! I will definitely be back!!!
