Our own Buddha in the Zen garden will keep company. Come with your music system. We have the connections and speaker s for you. For the movie buffs in you, bring your projectors. We have a screen as a part of the compound wall. Bon fire, outdoor food counters , manicured lawn, open shower facing the sea, indoor food/bar counter would add to the pleasure of staying.

Peaceful & relaxing
Kadal is one of a kind beach house that caters to small groups of up to 15 people. My family and I had tons of fun in this property. The house is clean with no-nonsense amenities. The garden blows us away. The hammocks and tents with the sea breeze and sound of waves is peaceful and relaxing.

Awesome weekend beach house on ECR
We were a big group of family and friends and thoroughly enjoyed this property. One of the only beach houses in chennai who give you options of booing for daytime, night time or both. And cost is very reasonable as well. Will surely be going back to this place very soon.

Perfect for a group of friends
Hey! So 14 of us had gone to Kadal last weekend from Bangalore. We hit Silk Board at around 5am to beat the traffic and took the regular Chennai Route via Hosur and Krishnagiri. Even though there was a fair bit of traffic on the outskirts of Chennai, we still got to Kadal by 12pm I think. The other route (we took on our way back) via Kanchipuram was much nicer and greener. Kadal is a 5-10 minute drive to Mahabalipuram, the Shore Temple, etc. The place is extremely clean. The property has a kitchen, hall and bedroom. The hall is converted to the dorm at night. There are two single beds (with cots), while the rest of the beds are floor beds, but pretty comfortable. There are 3 toilets too. There's a trampoline and badminton court or some such behind. There are hammocks and a couple of tents you can use. We didn't opt for food as there are plenty of restaurants around. We went to Moonrakers for lunch, and ordered in from Chilli's 49 for dinner. Jayshree who was managing our booking was extremely approachable and available prior to us getting there. Even the caretaker/ security on site was helpful, and at the same time non-interfering. This place is great for groups of friends who want to chill with not as many restrictions (they provide a speaker and oh the hall inside has disco lights!), as well as for 2-3 families (except there aren't proper cots, just mattresses so make sure no one has issues with sleeping on the floor) who want direct access to the beach. The beach is literally outside! There weren't many people outside on the beach either (Nibav beach), it was in a way pretty private. What you see on their website/ Facebook is what you get. We were pretty surprised ourselves, considering no one recommended this place - we just got it off Facebook! Great place with great vibes, and I'm definitely going back!!

Superb Beach House Bang In The Middle Of Madras & Pondicherry
PROS - Great accessibility from Madras - Property is superbly maintained and is right on the beach - Extremely apporachable and friendy owner as well as coordinators - You own the property for the time you are there and have complete freedom of your schedule - You have the choice of tenting, hammocks or A/C accomodation within the house itself - There is a kitchenette with an induction cooktop and coffee maker. - There are loads of interesting places to explore close by - Since we only had a day, we had attempting Surfing, again available close by at Covelong - Perfect for groups ranging from 10-15 people. CONS - During night time, it took us 20 mins and 3 U-turns to figure out the correct left turn on ECR when coming from Madras, in spite of being on call with the coordinator. A sign on ECR may help - They intend this property to be let out for groups and not families or couples - No provision of snacks on the property - you need to order from nearby restaurants - When we were making Maggi, we realised that there are no spices available on the house as well. Since a kitchenette is provided, it may be helpful to also provide for some spices to help guests with light cooking. - We had teething issues with the induction cook-top and the split AC in the bedroom. - Cannot think of any deal-breakers
