The location was right by the very unspoiled beach. we stayed on the first floor where we had beautiful view of the beach and the local fishing boats, where the fishermen sorted out their catch and tended to their nets in the morning. We had a good simple breakfast on our balcony every morning of eggs with toast and jam, watching the fishermen at work with the kites flying overhead looking for any fish they could get. Our room in the Homestay was a decent size and clean, with hot water and AC. Johny our host was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him.

Room tip: First Floor with Balcony

Marari Praise was everything we wanted in our stay in Kerala. The homestay us run by a really friendly family, who cannot do enough for you. We we're lucky that the owners 2 children (17 & 16) were in Xmas holidays which meant they looked after us all 5 days of our stay. They were excellent hosts (see picture). Xmas Eve was an excellent night, with the hosts ensuring everyone got a small gift. Just another example of what a great place this is.

On the practical side, the rooms are spacious and clean. The shower is excellent, as is the aircon. Breakfast was good as was dinner. You can get beer as well if required.

The beach is beautiful. Very unspoiled. There is a 5* resort just a few minutes walk on the beach. We had one meal there, which although good, was just the same standard as we were served at our homestay and with a couple of bottles of wine,the bill was almost as much as our whole stay at the homestay. My advice is, you don't need to go to the 5*. Stick to the homestays. They All offer great food and it is a much better (in my opinion) experience.

Thank you guys. We will be back!

The guesthouse is stunning, right on the beach with hardly any tourist there! We had a private balcony including a nice table overlooking the beach, perfect for sunsets. The room was clean and spacious.
The breakfast was delicious and we also had diner there a few times, we were never disappointed!
Otherwise if you fancy going out there are several good options just 10mn walk on the beach.

Finally, the staff is amazing and they let us checkout very late on our last day.
A special thanks to Johney for taking such good care of us during our stay. It couldn't have gone better!
