A perfect location to unwind with the sound of the sea gently lapping the shore and the beach right outside your door. Don’t come expecting luxury as the rooms are pretty basic, although the beds are the most comfortable we have encountered in India so far and the room spotlessly clean. A little pricey considering the facilities, although the location is unbeatable. The host family worked extremely hard to make our stay as comfortable as possible, cooking delicious Keralan cuisine and arranging tuk tuks etc whenever we needed them. A highlight of our holiday was the candlelit dinner by the water’s edge on tables fashioned from washed up cable reels. A shame we had to leave after 3 days due to overbooking as the next accommodation is poor in comparison.

We really enjoyed the location and cleanliness of the Villas.est part by far is to look out the room window see the water and be at he beach in 3 minutes.The place is run by 3 brothers. They cater to western guests and there were a lot of kids there during our stay. The breakfast that they serve are complete and their mom cooks really good fish curry dinners on request. I regret booking on Booking .com as the rates are a lot higher than T Advisor or if you book direct. We had problems with the A/C and hot water , kindly, the hosts only charged us one night for A/C.

Room tip: No need to pay for an A/C room- not worth it.

Anoop the owner organised our pick up from Kochi airport and our name on a card was the first thing we saw after Arrivals. The villas are actually right on the really clean beach among palm trees. We ate outside to the sound of the waves to delicious food prepared by his mum. Fish curry included chunks of tuna or whole snapper and breakfast included an omelette and fresh fruit salad. We even stayed an extra day to enjoy the private backwaters trip Anoop organised and we hired his taxi driver for two weeks! Our bed was comfortable and the shower and WiFi powerful! Great place to relax. Walk up the beach to sea the fishermen land their boats or watch the birds!

We arrived at 9 am without prior notice while check-in was in the afternoon. We welcomed by the father of the family, who helped us with our luggage and gave us a room right away.
Rooms are simple but they are of good size and very clean.
The best part is the location as the guest house is right on the beach and the front area is well maintained and cleaned. Hammock are really nice to enjoy the sunset.
Also, the family prepared lunch and dinner for us, which we had in front of the sea. The food was very good and prepared without chili (finally…).
It is a calm and relaxing place, far from the crowd. Anup and his family are very welcoming and we had a lovely stay.

Right on the beach. Hammocks slung between palm trees. Eagles circling overhead. Idyllic. Perfect place to switch off for a couple of days. Anoop was very cheerful and helpful as were the rest of the staff. Beach is beautiful with the colourful boats of the local fishermen bunched together ready for the next mornings catch. Sea rough and a bit dangerous but heed the warnings and you’ll be fine.
