  • Had a wonderful stay here. Everything was great, location, room, WiFi, close to the steps to the beach. The ashram upstairs was perfect for my practice as well. Alister went out of his way to help me secure a taxi to the train stop for an early morning (3am) train, and it was much appreciated. Would def recommend and come back!

  • My son and I had a great time in Varkala staying at Loris's place, which is peaceful and calm, perfectly situated for beach and restaurants, shady during the hottest part of the day and lovely and quiet at night (as is the whole resort). Our room was very comfortable, bathroom and balcony and storage all thoughtfully provided. We appreciated the free drinking water which meant we didn't have to buy single use plastics. The chill out room at the top of the building was handy to er, chill out in while we waited for our 1am taxi to take us to the airport on the last day/night. Loris's partner booked the taxi for us and we were able to leave our luggage with the young guy on the desk, who stayed up late to make sure we were picked up ok.

  • very good location right at varkala cliff. The beach and lots of restaurants where just a few meters away. The room was nice and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. would stay here again!

    Daniel2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay! Right off the cliff with the perfect amount of privacy, while still being right in the midst of the action.

    Ryan2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful spot on the Varkala Cliff with a perfect enclosed rooftop for yoga and reading. & Homemade pizza everyday for 100 or so rupees! Great location near all restaurants and shops you may need. Only downsides are WiFi is not very good, limited hot water and the room pictures you may see may not be the room that you get.

    Ryan2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loris’s place is just a 5 min walk from the beach and very close to the cafes and shops. Lotus suggested to walk till the end of the Cliff to the Black Beach that was much better and less crowded than the main Varkala beach. The chill out area on the terrace is perfect to spend evenings and late nights. Lotus also arranged for the tuk tuk and the bike whenever we needed.

    Shreesh2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay at varkala- north cliff, very central located but still calm surrounded by trees. Loris and his wife are an amazing couple who makes the place with their details to a cozy space. They are very helpful and have a good network to give you information. I love this place!

    Stefanie2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and very welcoming staff. Sparkling clean rooms and great rooftop where you can practice yoga, read books or just have a coffee. Upgrade of a room wasn’t a problem, and each room had a hammock outside, so we could watch a fireflies at night. We loved this place so much, that we stayed 3 days longer than expected :) Also near this spot we loved Nomad cafe and Windhorse gift shop- outstanding friendly service :) thank you, Loris and staff, it was a great stay!

  • This place is an amazing option if you’re looking for a relaxed time close to the sea. It has a breathtaking view. And the beef curry served was just amazing. Pictures came out so beautifully as it has a gorgeous view. 100% recommended

    Indhran2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jasar has a beautiful place right on the cliff, a 5-minute walk from the Edava beach. All our requests were taken care of with a smile - food, scooter, cycle, yoga mats, cab. We had great breakfast on both days, appam on one day and iddiyappam on the next. The inside of the room is nothing to write home about. But it meets all needs. And the location makes up for it in every which way. We would definitely come back.

    Aashimi2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage can be hard to find but is in a beautiful setting overlooking the sea. You can fall asleep hearing the waves and wake up surrounded by palm trees and a beautiful breakfast! The walk along to Varkala was shady and had a breeze and was 30-45 minutes but very pleasant overall and lots of cafés and hotels on the way, but this spot is away from the main beach and very peaceful. We wished we had more than one night here! We didn’t order food as we hadn’t planned ahead but there were plenty of options in Varkala in all prices ranges. There was also excellent homemade juice but this was 100 rupees per juice so a little more pricey than you may get elsewhere, I don’t know what the price for dinner was, but the breakfast was very high quality and tasty (we went for the Keralan option but we had a choice!). Would recommend as a treat!

    Rosie2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful ten days at Jasar’s place. The villa is at the far north end of varkala cliff. You can easily walk the length of the cliff in about 40 mins but equally Jamal, his manager, is always st the end of what’s ap to arrange a tuk tuk if you prefer. The villa is really comfortable , very spacious, has a kitchenette with large fridge and kettle and terrace with loungers. They will arrange food which is excellent . The most exemplary part is the service . Always with a smile , no request is too large; they arranged for our bags to be mended, money changed, daily laundry, juices, lassi, cookery classes, the list was endless ... They asked what we would like for dinner and we requested a paneer curry. It was only after we had eaten it that they revealed they had brought in a special chef to cook it. It was amazing! Thank you so much, we had a fabulous time ! 😁🐬☀️

    Naomi2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely quiet out of the way little cottage north of Varkala beach. The caretaker lives on site, is really friendly and helpful, and serves an excellent & filling breakfast every morning. He will also organise tuk-tuks to and from Varkala Beach which is 4.5km away. This journey costs Rs 150 each way. The cottage is very clean with a big bed, quiet a/c and a big shower/bathroom. This is a great place to stay if you are happy to be a few km from the centre of the "cliff" and it's restaurants and Varkala beach which we were. There isn't much nearby and during our stay, the local beach was not accessible as the tides were too high. The up-side is a very quiet location and a great night's sleep.

    Bruce2019-03-29T00:00:00Z

    Azhar2019-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 2 glorious nights at the cottage. It was just what we needed, a little getaway away from all of the hustle and bustle of the cliff. The location is right next to the little village and temple, which we enjoyed visiting. This kind of village vibe was what we were looking for. The lovely couple that looks after the place were the epitome of hospitality. We had only planned to eat dinner there the first night, but the delicious homemade Kerala cuisine had us ordering every meal there!

  • Nice stylish place with a sea view, in a calm place near 15-20 min from the cliff, to the north from it. The beach is also more calm and less crowded. We like it more than main beach.

    Yasha2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Room is at very decent and peaceful location. You can have view of the beach from the balcony. The place is very near from the beach.. away from the crowd. Room was very spacious, specially the washroom is very big. Place was very clean as well. Host was very welcoming and polite. We really enjoyed the stay, and will strongly recommend the place to someone looking for a peaceful vacation.

    Abhinav2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Was such a pleasure to stay here. We had excellent local meals prepared and served for us, the location is the perfect distance from the cliff & the view is devine. I recommend for anyone wanting a tranquil place to stay in Varkala.

    Holly2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sherly cottages was lovely. Bijou was there to greet us despite our last minute booking. The place has a beautiful view, and it is very much a little lover’s nest perched above the Indian Ocean. A very short walk to the beach, and about 15 minutes to the cliff with all the restaurants. Bijou made sure that we had everything that we needed during our stay. We felt very taken care of. As mentioned in another review, WiFi is spotty. Also water pressure is minimal. Accept it :-) we would definitely stay again.

    Ishan2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this place! The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from beautiful beaches (Odayam and black beach) and from Varkala cliff (20 min by the sea path). The sea view and sunset are amazing from the large balcony of the room, since it is situated on the second floor. You also have access to a kitchen. The room and bathroom are really big and beautifully decorated. The host will do everything possible to help you and give informations about the area. I stayed 9 days and would have stayed more if it was not booked already for the next days. Wow! A little paradise! ... The WIFI connection was not very good, that's the only thing you need to know if it is very important to you and you don't have your own data.

  • Great place to stay if you are in Varkala. Amazing views and extremely clean place. Jasar was very quick in responding all the queries. And amazing hospitality and service by both manager and care taker of the property. Overall, great stay.

    Simran2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Jasar's place. The location is perfect, as you're walking distance from the bars and restaurants but removed from the fray. We loved the view and the wonderful hospitality (the breakfast was wonderful!). I highly recommend.

    Marcus2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • 1. Highly recommended place of stay. 2. The place is wonderfully located. Close to the beach but away from the crowds. 3. Really neat rooms. Great space inside. 4. Outside the rooms was awesome. Huge space in the nature with the hammocks and swings. 5. Most awesome part was the view- located on top of the cliff with the beautiful blue sea waves hitting the cliff was an amazing site to hear and experience. 6. Great response from the staff. 7. Customised meals on order. So this is great place for anyone who loves the sea and wants to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

    Apurva2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place!

    Sarfaraz2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at these cosy cottages last month and it exceeded our expectation. Jasar was absolutely helpful, quick to respond and dropped in to say Hello. All our queries were met promptly and there were no hassles with any of the check in and check out process. The cottage is set in a beautiful location with the sea at your doorstep and it was secluded yet felt completely safe. The interior is beautifully set, clean and all rooms well appointed and tastefully decorated.The caretakers were around at all times but did not take away the privacy and they were at hand each time you needed them. As it was off season we found it tricky to find good restaurants but that did not affect the stay as the food served was delicious and we had meals( breakfast and dinner)everyday at the cottage. The beach is just couple of minutes of walk and we had it all to ourselves. We would definitely recommend this lovely place.

    Bigy2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The location was woow... Within 100m was a cliff, north to the main cliff and walk down past 300m you get a 2 small lovely beaches, far from the crowd it was fun. The breakfast was perfect. The helper man was polite and with kids getting customade menu was comfortable. Suggestions: Bathroom blinds can be made for privacy. Generator backup for AC would be adding to the luxury Looking forward to stay longer in future

    Vivek2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot on the cliff above the beach overlooking the Arabian Sea. Lovely sunsets. We made it to Varkala Cliff twice by walking but mainly took advantage of the tuk tuks for transportation that were arranged by Jasar’s staff. Good wi-fi and air conditioning. Jasar’s place was a great introduction to Kerala.

    Patricia2019-04-30T00:00:00Z

    Varkala, Kerala, India

    Villa Ākāśa is a quiet guesthouse, surrounded by nature and a few minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched beach. 'Vayu' is a large, spacious room with a private entrance and a balcony overlooking a sea of coconut trees, and a flowering garden below. We have a great team to make your stay comfortable; one of them is Yakko - our lovely dog who is friendly and loved by all who come stay with us.
    • Private verandas to lay back and relax • All rooms with en suite bathrooms (ground floor rooms with shower area open to the sky) • Verandas of the ground floor rooms face opposite directions to maintain privacy • Breakfast included • Homely Indian lunch and dinner can be arranged if requested in the morning • Free wi-fi • Air conditioners in the room • Taxi to and from the Trivandrum airport can be arranged at an additional charge Surrounding area: Villa Akasa is in the heart of a village that is still barely touched by tourist development. We invite you to sit out on your private balcony and listen to the unique sounds of village life: the whisper of the coconut trees, the chirping of crickets during the night, the sounds of worship during the day. A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set. The North cliff or main tourist area is a twenty minute walk or short bicycle ride away. Here you will find some beautiful restaurants perched along the cliff edge and small shops selling curios and beach clothes. Auto-richshaws can easily be arranged for you. Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.
  • My stay with Shama exceeded my expectations.. I would without a doubt highly recommend staying here for a peaceful relaxing getaway. The location is absolutely serene surrounded by nature; close the the sea. The room was very spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean! The delicious food was the highlight of my stay; & the company from her sweet pup. I look forward to returning one day. Thank you again for your lovely hospitality.

  • I stayed in vayu room and definitely Best stay in Varkala. The photos look good on Airbnb? Believe it or not, it's even better than pictures. Very good architecture. The host and the Villa Akasa Staff is very kind and generous. The breakfast was delicious and having it in the balcony completely surrounded by nature was a very unique experience for me.

    Lovely small guesthouse in a little village in Varkala. Very quiet and peaceful place, surrounded by nature and a 2 minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched Aaliyirakkm beach. There are four spacious and comfortable rooms. Each room is designed to give guests total privacy. Kitchen, dinning and living room are available for all guests. The base price is per room, 2 guests if you are more please send a message for pricing.
    More intimacy for you, our house is only 4 bedrooms and it has spacious common livings and terraces. It has a big garden with lots of trees and flowers and sometimes you can spot peacocks, monkeys, mongoose and all kind of birds. There are three terraces where you can relax in the shade when the sun is to hot or you can practice yoga on the rooftop terrace while looking at the sea.
    The house is in the more quiet touristic area of Varkala, just before you enter the Aaliyirakkm beach, still close enough to some good restaurants and places where you can take yoga and surf classes. Everyday on the beach you will find the local boys playing their volleyball and they will take you right in if you want to join. 100 m south on the beach there is the fishing village where, in the morning, you can watch how the fishermen pull their boats in and unload the fish that they caught over night.
  • Deepa and her husband were really helpful, friendly and kind. When we wanted to be alone it was as if we had the house to ourselves, but they were always on call if we needed help

    Jack2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Deepa was a delightful hostess. The house was perfect for us as it was situated in a quiet small village near the beach with a big Hindu temple. It is situated 30 mins walk from Varkala “ cliff”. It was surrounded by lush vegetation and we enjoyed the Hindu chanting in the early mornings. Deepa made us varied Kerala breakfasts several times which were interesting and tasty. She also organised a driver for us and washed our clothes while we were too busy to do so ourselves, there is a washing machine and kitchen for guests to use. Deepa’s husband was very attentive and her father also who speaks English quite well. They live in their house which is next to the guest house. We enjoyed our stay.

    Sarah2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • I like the place so much greenery ...near the beach too...I like deepa being interactive and her kids around d her , beautiful and talkative...I like the place built between the city and the countryside...Ilike the place overall...

    Chestora2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • The Red Rose Guest House is a hidden gem in Varkala which is incredibly peaceful and surrounded by beautiful gardens. It's an easy 30 minute walk into town where you can enjoy the delights of town

    Rob2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • The homestay is well equipped and located a stones throw from the beach (we could see it from our balcony). Deepa was exceptionally helpful and made the stay a pleasure. The beach is quiet, clean and all yours (apart from the evening when we pulled up chairs to watch the local boys duke it out over cricket, an experience in itestelf). If you're looking for somewhere more chilled (but within 30 mins walk) of Vakala proper I can highly recommend Deepa's.

    Scott2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Deepa’s house is simply wonderful! Very close to the beach (which you will have practically to yourself) and a short walk to Varkala town with the main beach, cliff and restaurants easily reached with a half hour walk down the stunning beach or 5 minutes in a rickshaw for 150 rupees. Deepa is a lovely host. She was more than happy to arrange taxis and rickshaws, and her cooking is a delight. We had her breakfast every morning and couple of lunches. All varied and served the traditional South Indian way, and all extremely tasty. Cannot recommend this please highly enough. Will defiantly return. Thank you Deepa for such a wonderful stay!

    Isabel2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Deepas house for one night only, but it was a wonderful stay. Deepa is such a friendly and lovely person, always smiling. The room was super clean and the whole house is in a perfect condition. It’s a bit outside and away from all the tourist places, but you can reach the Varkala cliff easily in 5 min with a tuc tuc. 2 min from her house away you will find a beautiful beach. Thanks Deepa!

A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set. The North cliff or main tourist area is a twenty minute walk or short bicycle ride away. Here you will find some beautiful restaurants perched along the cliff edge and small shops selling curios and beach clothes. Auto-richshaws can easily be arranged for you. Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.
  • The listing is exactly as described. My favourite parts about it was the verandah where I enjoyed reading amidst the greenery and the colourful bougainvillea flowers and the open air shower in the bathroom. The beach is just 5 minutes away. If you walk along the beach you will even reach the beach below the famous Varkala cliff where all the cliff top restaurants that line the walkway facing the sea are located. We only wish we had some more time in the villa. All in all a relaxing getaway at a beautiful homestay.

  • Villa Akasa exceeded all of our expectations. The room had minimalist design but felt cozy and stylish in the same time with the help of a few art pieces and flowers that made this place unique and reminded you that your are in India. But our favorite parts by far where the breakfast on the patio that felt like dining is a small oasis, and the proximity to the most beautiful and lush beach I have ever been to. Greatly recommend this place to anyone considering it for their next stay in Varkala!

    Sasha2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is beautiful, a calm Setting perfect for relaxing. There is beach is very close, a five minute walk, and the main north cliff beach is 20 minutes, both lovely walks. North cliff offers many restaurants. The villa it’s self was very clean and the bed was so comfy, I slept soundly every night.

    Beth2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • comfortable stay, tasty food, friendly host, friendly staff and friendly pet and very near to the beautiful Varkkala beach

    Ambili2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Beach is walking distance away and is quiet with a great view of the varkala cliff. Shama is super nice. Yakko their doggo is also super cute. We travelled with our pet and he enjoyed a lot in the nearby beach. The dinner and breakfast are both yummm and the place is well designed.

    Arpita2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very good. I recommend this place. Shama was really helpful and good host.

    Bharath2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Shama-ji and her team are exactly as good as other guests have described in their reviews. The space is very well-maintained and tastefully organised. Details have been attended to - no plastics being the most admirable. The serenity of the space mixes well with the rhythms of small-town Keralan life. The host was warm, hospitable and very helpful. The food we ate at Villa Akasa was delectable and represented Malayali cuisine well. The garden was beautiful and we loved the open air shower as well as the chats with Shama-ji. Beyond the host and the space, Varkala would be an ideal destination if it could do a better job of building up local food traditions. Global tourist traffic has exercised a very heavy toll on the availability of authentic, quality eating options. But that is a larger point not specific to our Airbnb experience. Indeed, having the option of meals in the Airbnb really helped. We enjoyed ourselves and will carry fond memories of our visit to the room guarded by a pair of owls!

    Manu2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • After a hectic year, I really needed to sit in a quiet garden and read a book. And Villa Akasa gave me exactly that! It's a beautiful place, with a sublime garden, verandahs where you can just languish all day long, and clean and effective rooms. Overall, the place is very exquisitely designed. Shama was a graceful host and so is her crew of support staff who can also make some very nice home-cooked food. The Villa is a 15 minute walk to the beach, which also has some nice restaurants along the cliff. Varkala is a place to spend a couple of days, just idling on the beach, and Villa Akasa offers the perfect setting to get that going.

    Eamonn2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Aysegul's place is located right at the edge of the cliff. It was a one minute walk to the beach and cafes. The room we got was spacious and had a big bathroom - I loved the four poster bed! Our room didn't have an AC which was fine in January but might be an issue in other seasons. There's also a really cute terrace space for yoga or just hanging out. Fantastic location, warm host, and great price!

  • Very clean, quiet place, super close to the cliff and all the restaurants and little stores. The host was very flexible and supporting, preventing cooled bottled water and caling a taxi for us. You find everything you would need for a pleasant stay. Recomanable.

    Jeanine2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Location and the host are the best part about this homestay. Within reach of places of interest but still located at a zone which is peaceful and pleasant for your stay. The host is super friendly and a really cool guy.

    Inge2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Mudasir Rashid's place is close to the cliff and great value for the money.

    Jenni2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money. It is a budget room, but it is cleaner than the usual budget room for India. Host also provided towels, tp and soap. Very quiet, just back from the noise on the cliff, but just a 5min walk away. Hard to find though, if walking along the cliff it is a right turn after prasanthi cliff hotel and then another right at the end of that walking path (look for the signs).

    Saurabh2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is an ideal place for young couples and group of friends. The place is very well done and makes you feel right at home, it's just absolutely peaceful. Pros: *Amazing breakfast *Beautiful ambience *quite close to some local cafes that serve food at a reasonable price compared to the restaurants on the Cliff *In house doctor available for consultation and to get massages as well as treatments. Cons: *Can be a but scary to walk in the night since it's tucked away in a quiet street opp to indha cafe without any proper Street lights. *If you don't have a transport you might have to walk a bit if you want to reach the Cliff so elders might find it challenging. Overall it's a great place to stay, very pleasant and kind staffs. Always ready to help and even suggested us few places to visit 😊✌️

    Swapna2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful building with a central courtyard, spacious rooms and stunning murals. Really helpful staff. Super peaceful too. A wonderful place to relax & rejuvenate. Wish I could have stayed longer.

    Keri2019-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Bijoy's place exceeded our expectations. The place is beautiful and is located very near to the beach. We loved the place, it was beautiful. Our hosts were very kind and generous. They gave us refreshments to drink when we arrived, which perhaps sounds like a very small thing, but it was a great gesture if you consider that we had traveled for ~2 hours under the scorching sun. They booked scooters and taxis for us. They even went out of their way and bought cold drinks for us when we couldn't go out for some reason. Definitely going back there the next time. PSA: the location and the place name mentioned in this AirBnb listing is wrong. Please make sure you coordinate with them on a phone call.

    Saket2019-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The property was beautiful, had clean rooms, the required amenities and very friendly staff. There is an Ayurveda massage facility as well, but we didn’t try it. The location is great, surrounded by cafe’s and just a 5 minute walk to the cliff and beach. Bijoy was a great host, he helped us with the booking and allowed me to book an extra room that we paid for after the stay. He suggested a few places for us to go to. The manager and the staff were beyond efficient, they would bring us anything we asked for and made arrangements for auto rickshaws and cabs when we needed them. Bijoy was able to book us a cab immediately on the last day, which saved me from missing my flight. He was reliable throughout our stay and made sure it went on smoothly. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone, and will hopefully be back someday.

If you want to get there but don't feel like walking it's easy to get a rickshaw down the street. Still, you will have what you need just nearby, some restaurants and small shops where you can get some snacks, drinks or simple groceries.
  • Great stay. Nizam was very kind and helpful, also considering that one of us was sick during our stay. I would come again.

    Paolo2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nizamudhin is a wonderful host, helpful, kind and a great communicator. The rooms are clean, cozy and nicely decorated. The location is about a 15 minute walk to the North Cliffs and more off the beaten track. Beach is very close with good restaurants nearby. Highly recommend and would stay again.

    Taya2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Green Villa is a bright, light, friendly and relaxed homestay! We really enjoyed our 10 day stay. It’s next to a beautiful bit of coast with good swimming/wave diving(!!) and a few nice places to eat are dotted around, or a 15 minute walk away in the cliffs. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean. We had the slightly smaller, darker room at the back of the house, but which had the bonus of a lovely private porch. But the other rooms are really big and bright and mean that you are more sociable as you’d hang out more in the communal spaces, such as the front porch and the airy roof terrace. Nizam and Sanna are really lovely, friendly and chilled out hosts, who leave you to it, but are always up for a chat or to help you on the right track if want to go somewhere or do something. And we loved so much having the company of beautiful Lao and Louie, their dog and puppy, who are really special and full of love! If you are heading to this area, you will be really happy to come and stay at Green Villa. If you go, be sure to make use of the outside shower as it is genius and really luxurious!! ;)

    Catherine2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very successful stay at Sanna and Nizham: quiet, cozy, open-minded, clean and pretty rooms, a large roof terrace and a small kitchen. We felt comfortable with you!

    Antje2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and very friendly dog 👌🏿✨ great roof top terrasse and great view! Just note no hot water and if possible ask for the room not on the side of the street!

    Jeanne2019-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. A short walk away from the bussle of Varkala north cliff but still an easy stroll to restaurants. 2 mins walk from a nice beach and a beautiful hike to the North to some fantastic beaches and a great cafe - sandy toes.

    Chris2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • I really had a blast while staying at Nizam's place as felt as if I was still at home. The ambience and the amenities provided are top notch. Nizam & Sana turned out to be wonderful hosts as they made me comfortable as I was traveling alone this time and they kinda took me into the family for the day. Even though the stay was for a single night, I had a really great time and had one of the most memorable New year's eve ever. The location is a tad bit away but not that far away from the main cliff making it much more relaxed and serene compared to the other mainstream hotels nearby. I highly recommend this place for staying to someone who is planning to visit Varkala.

    Sam2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nizam's house is amazingly colorful there's no dull corner anywhere. The yoga space upstairs works well if you want to squeeze in some body beneficial activities into your decadent vacation. It's not just the interiors that look good. Step outside and there is a beautiful garden all around the house (complete with hammocks and a swing). And a good-looking dog who gets chummy with anyone. The beach is 5 min away (go left along the coast for touristy things and go right to catch the locals, fishermen, and peaceful spots). "Doctors Ayurveda" nearby offers heavenly massages at cheap rates (I went twice over a one-night stay lol).

    Sherly Cottage where the wind from the sea becomes your masseur. Just 5 km away from Varkala Railway Station and 55 km away from Trivandrum International Airport, this serene resort stays in a spiritual bubble of tranquillity. Its delicate and its natural.

It has got a story for you.
    Free Wifi and Free Parking space Home made Food Each room is overlooked by the exotic beach and is built specifically with spots for enjoying the sunset while the visitors can sit back and relax, sipping their coffee.

No wonder, the Gallery attracts artists to showcase their paintings and art works, offering another visage of the rich cultural heritage of Kerala.

  • I really enjoyed staying at sherly's. It's just a minute walk from the beach which is awesome. I also enjoy that it's a bit out of varkala's cliffs. It was super clean, comfy, and quite. Definitely will stay there again. Highly recommend! She's also a very talented artist! And has her own paintings in the room which matched the rooms.

    Marsalo2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a fifteen minutes walk away from the cliff and tucked into a serene corner of the beach. You can truly have the best of both worlds.

    Azmia2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and spacious rooms right on the beach. Breakfast and coffee each morning was a great value and very delicious. Hosts are excellent and very helpful. There are shops and restaurants nearby, and Varkala cliff is just a short walk along the beach. I would recommend staying here.

    Melody2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay in Varkala. Beautiful house, location is perfect, short walk away from the busy cliff. Wonderful beach just a minute away. The owner is very helpful and always there for you. Great experience, calm stay. Room has everything you need, and even hot water. You can use kitchen to prepare your meals. Thank you Sherly Cottage, will come again 100%! Best place in Varkala.

Never felt like we were away from home. Would definitely love to visit again! Cab guy shameer provided a hassle free and convenient drop to airport as well. Highly recommend this place.

    Achala2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Such a warm feeling from the people! You really feel that Sherly and her husband want to help you in any way possible, give you advice and they really care that you have a great time in their very nice cottages! Bathroom is really big. Bed is really really comfortable! For extra price you can use AC and have breakfast. I also got help for the train tickets for my journey to Kannyakumari. Definitely recommend Sherly’s Cottages for your stay

  • The interior of the homestay is clean, the rooms and bathrooms are large, and the wifi is fast. The location is a few minutes from the sea and there are many restaurants and shops around. The host and customer service were very polite and enthusiastic and did their best to help. Check in was still very satisfying. We live in an air-conditioned room. Although there is no hot water in the shower, the faucet can produce hot water and it is not a problem to use. If there is more furniture in the room, such as wardrobes and chairs, it will be more convenient to use. India often has power outages. This one should have a backup power supply. We lived for three days and we were able to call soon after a power outage. Overall, it was good.

  • Everything was fine. Easy and relaxed. Ajimon gave good tip for local festival

    Rene2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Yodha's Guesthouse was like living in a family in a home. The highlight for me was the extremly relaxed and friendly atmosphere in this guesthouse. I felt welcome always. AJ and his dog Yodha are pure souls, very friendly and helpful. My room was huge with a special decoration touch. To the beach, the restaurants and cafes its a short 2 minute walk. When back in Varkala i will defenetly stay in Yodhas again and again. Thanks for everything.

    Marion2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • I’ll start with Aj, he is very kind and helpful and he likes to make your stay that extra bit special. He gives great tips about the city and surrounding areas and is always quick to respond. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The shower was great! The view outside the window is very nice and it’s nice to come back to after a day exploring. I would definitely recommend Aj’s place to anyone visiting Varkala

    Loyed2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • I was fortunate to have been referred to Silver Sand as initially I had phoned a different place in Varkala which was full. AJ, the owner, happened to be visiting his friend and so she passed the phone to him. Having been in India for 4 weeks and stayed in all different types of accommodation from passable to good, it was nice to know that we were to be staying somewhere that was just opening. That meant new beds, clean sheets and all that a new place promises. We were not disappointed. As there are five of us travelling, AJ, the owner organised a large taxi with roof rack to take us from Kovalam straight to his door. Service over and above the norm! We were welcomed on arrival and shown to our much larger than average bedrooms, each with its own terrace. Everything was spotlessly clean and we liked the decor so much we've even asked AJ to get us some of the candle holders, which he has obligingly ordered for us. AJ has pointed us in the direction of wonderful places to eat and to visit. His hosting skills are second to none so it is without hesitation that I wish him every success in this new venture, and recommend Silver Sand if you're planning to stay in Varkala. Oh and I can't forget to mention Yoga, the Rottweilerpuppy who is just adorable!!!

    Maureen2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • We feel incredibly lucky that AJs was recommended to us, we had a brilliant stay and will recommend to everyone! He has just opened for the season and the place is spotless. The rooms are beautifully appointed, thoughtful lighting etc, have clean bathrooms and are enormous - it's so nice to have so much room. There are also huge balconies to hang out on, just great spaces to read, work, chill. He offers free water to try and reduce plastic use, and there was wifi. AJ is such a nice guy, we really enjoyed getting to know him. He has given us lots of recommendations too for places to go etc. He also has the cutest puppy who is a total joy to have a little play with!

    Varkala beach , India

    Tucked away in a little village in Varkala, Villa Akasa is a quiet guesthouse, surrounded by nature and just a few minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched beach. We have a great team to make your stay comfortable; one of them is Yakko - our lovely dog who is friendly and loved by all who come stay with us. We know what it’s like to live in paradise in God’s Own Country – it’s that amazing experience that we want to share with you.
    • 5 spacious rooms with separate entrance • Private verandas to lay back and relax • All rooms with en suite bathrooms (ground floor rooms with shower area open to the sky) • Verandas of the ground floor rooms face opposite directions to maintain privacy • Breakfast included • Homely Indian dinner can be arranged if requested in the morning • Free wi-fi • Air conditioners in the room • Taxi to and from the Trivandrum airport can be arranged at an additional charge To note: The price shown for 3 people is for 1 room with an extra bed. If you'd like two separate rooms, please indicate the number of guests as at least 4. Similarly, the price for 5 people is for 2 rooms with an extra bed in one room. If you'd like three separate rooms, indicate the number of guests as at least 6. Surrounding area: Villa Akasa is in the heart of a village that is still barely touched by tourist development. We invite you to sit out on your private balcony and listen to the unique sounds of village life: the whisper of the coconut trees, the chirping of crickets during the night, the sounds of worship during the day. A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set. The North cliff or main tourist area is a twenty minute walk or short bicycle ride away. Here you will find some beautiful restaurants perched along the cliff edge and small shops selling curios and beach clothes. Auto-richshaws can easily be arranged for you. Close by there is also a traditional Kerala style temple which is over 2000 years old. This temple is steeped in legend and myth and has an ancient energy; visiting it is a beautiful experience. Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.
    We are not on the busy touristy stretch of Varkala but in a little village a short distance away. Our beach, a short 5-minute walk down the road, is pristine and usually deserted. Wake to the sounds of birds singing and fall asleep with the light of fireflies and the song of crickets. Let us spoil you with healthy, locally - sourced home cooked food served on your private balcony. And when you want to explore hope on a cycle, or into a rickshaw and head to the touristy spots. Or allow us to help you book an authentic Ayurvedic massage, a houseboat trip or a visit to a 2000-year-old-temple or 17th Century fort. I have made Varkala my home, and I want you to feel the peace, joy, and bliss that this place has given to me - even if it's for a few days.
  • My stay was wonderful. My only complaint was the mattress it was hard made my back hurt. Other then that my stay was wonderful!

    Frias2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place to unwind and relax with tasteful interiors , warm and friendly host Shama and the very helpful staff Along and Subhash. Not to forget the excellent breakfast and refreshments. Would definitely recommend the stay at her place :)

    meenu2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Shama was so hospitable, accommodating, and helpful. The property is beautiful and about a 5 minute walk from one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been to. Breakfast was varied every day and so delicious. I spent a serene few days at Shama’s place. Highly recommended!

    Tomek2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Shama's home with our family in 2 wonderful rooms that were newly renovated and right by a garden courtyard, which made our time in Varkala really relaxing and tranquil. The staff is really friendly and responsive and Shama was one of the most hospitable hosts taking good care of us throughout our stay. The place is just 5 mins from Varkala beach which is one of the best we've seen in Kerala. The rooms are spacious and have been tastefully decorated with artful touches. We would definitely recommend the place to anyone going to Kerala and would gladly stay there again.

    Nitin2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Akasa is a beautiful place to stay. We had two rooms for 5 people (the large bed easily accommodated three female adults), but an extra floor mattress would have been available if we needed it. The grounds are stunning and we enjoyed the cool drink on arrival and the breakfast outside on our patio each day. In room kettles allowed us to make tea we brought with us each evening.T he local beach was an easy 5 minute walk, with barley a sole. Walk down to the right away from the fishing village for greater cleanliness. The beach on the North cliff is also worth a trip. Shama helped us arrange transport whenever we needed it. A very relaxing and pleasant experience!

    Jean2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Shama's place was an ideal 3 day getaway for my husband and me. Villa Akasa is tucked away in a tiny village and is perfect if you want to stay away from the touristy spots. There is a quiet beach close by and the North Cliff is about 20-25 minutes away by walk - or you can take an autorickshaw to it. The Papanasam beach is about 15 minutes away. Our room had many thoughtful touches such as toiletries, reading material, some gorgeous art on the walls and a quaint sit out area perfect for lazy breakfasts. Shama and her staff are always at hand to attend to any request and Shama was kind enough to help us out with a few last minute requests. The home made bread at breakfast was particularly good and we loved how it was served in the verandah. We had a great stay and hope to be back soon.

    Ekta2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • A tranquil experience, Vila is so beautiful & sparling clean, lovely garden area.Care takers are so kind & friendly companion- yakko(dog).Breakfast was delicious. A perfect home stay for travellers. I had a peaceful time with my family.

    Arun2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Shama and her boys were warm, hospitable and very accomodating. Yakko, their dog was so friendly, even at first meet. Their delicious breakfast servings were homemade with a North Indian touch. Highly recommend staying with them.

    Francesco S2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were looking to rent out an entire place close to the Beach and the Cliff. We were fortunate that we found Christine’s lovely home ideally located (5 minutes by walk from South Beach and the Temple; 5 minutes by drive from North Beach), reasonably priced and peaceful. What’s more, Christine was a wonderful host who gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home. We hope to stay at Christine’s when we return to Varkala and recommend it to anyone looking for a nice and cozy place for themselves.

    Pedro2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy cottage. Great location and great staff!

    Farzad2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying in Hari’s place, a simple, lovely room in a property that is tucked away in a neighborhood about 10 minutes from the tourist spots and beach at Varkala. Stay here if you’re looking to explore this verdant part of Kerala but are looking for a bit of seclusion and quiet. The small kitchen is a nice touch, though I didn’t use it, as is the table and chair outside for sitting and etc.

    Micah2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean - has a little kitchen with hob and mini fridge to cook your own food if you like to do that. There is a fan in the bedroom and a European style toilet which is really clean. It is is discreetly tucked away up the cliff and a really cosy place to stay. The host was easy to communicate with, easy check in and out and it’s just a 10 min walk to reach the beach. We found Darjeeling Cafe and Inda Hotel perfect for food, coffee and chai! I would recommend and definitely go back.

    Hannah2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Super clean, friendly host, super chill location away from the cliff. There’s a hammock on the deck and it’s a lovely way to pass the afternoon. Varkala was way more touristy than we expected so it was great to be somewhere tucked away in the banana trees!

    Liv2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely cottage, clean and airy with a nice table to sit at on the patio and a private kitchen and fridge. The location is very convenient, just 15 min walk from the beach which means it’s a welcome break from the Varkala Cliff scene. Silent for sleeping. Great place to go for relaxation, writing, reading, hanging out. Just want to emphasize again how clean it is— cleanest place I’ve stayed in in India!

    Rebecca2019-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Varkala. 10 minutes walk from the beach, very peaceful, comfortable and clean with fast wifi. Kitchen was a great bonus. Nebin was a star, helped with directions, advice and anything we needed whenever we needed it. Recommended.

  • We had a great time at Nizams place. The room is big and bright with good airflow and fan so it's not to hot. It's a good hangout area where you can relax and a big rooftop with hammocks. The rooftop is perfect for yoga! Next door you also have yoga classes every morning. It's 2 minutes walk to Odayam Beach. You also have some good restaurants close by. If you follow the beach for 20 minutes you get to Varkala Beach. Nizam is such a great guy. He helps you with everything you need. We really recommend staying here if you're in Varkala.

  • The location of the homestay is on point. We were received with warm gestures. The room was very clean. Our privacy was respected. Since we were four girls and our safety was a big priority but not once we felt it was compromised. This place is definitely recommended for a peaceful getaway! Thank you for the amazing service :').

    Nithya2019-12-22T00:00:00Z

    Edel2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place in my opinion is located perfectly fine in Varkala. Away from the cliff traffic of people but just 40 metres from the beach. You will love the stay. Biju who is the caretaker manager is just amazing. He is very prompt in his communication and a very warm person. The homemade food is a must try and reasonably priced. Don’t make the mistake of not having atleast one meal here. I highly recommend and have made up my mind that I will not stay anywhere else but in Sherley Cottage when I am at Varkala.. Thanks again Biju - you are doing a great job here.

    Ragunath2019-11-18T00:00:00Z

The location is perfect, it's just a few minutes walk to the beach/cliff and there are many restaurants around. We can 100÷ recommend to stay with these guys =)

    Andreas2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The cleanest AirBnb we stayed in during our trip! You will definitely feel comfortable here. Marion and Nihal also invited us to a local festival while we were there, which we would not have seen otherwise--very nice. The location is truly ideal, walking distance to the beach, great food, and if you get a moped you can drive along the coast over to where the backwaters meet the ocean. RECOMMEND!

    Megan2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a very beautiful neighborhood. Marion and Nihal were very prompt in replying to our messages and queries. They even arranged a bike rental for us by the time we freshened up. The house is centrally located, so all tourist places are easily accessible. Overall, it was a very peaceful and pleasant stay.

    Tina2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Good value place to stay.

    Richard2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a cozy, quiet, clean place to take a moment to rest. Close enough to the North Cliff, Black Beach and South Beach, you could say it has quite a strategic placement. Staying with Marion and Nihal helped me feel not like a tourist but having more of an authentic experience of the place. I think we will be hanging out again fairly soon... I highly recommend Cliff Diaries if you want to experience Varkala from the inside. Thank you guys!

    Marija2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect choice for anyone in search of a simple, uncomplicated and affordable accommodation in a great location (close to Varkala's main attractions). Nihal and Marion are super nice hosts who will help you with recommendations for food and things to do and will even come surfing with you. :) Highly recommended.

    Daniel2019-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We cannot recommend staying at Suresh’ enough. The host was kind, the place amazing, well taken care off and Suresh was very accommodating. The provided breakfast was delicious and we liked it so much we extended our stay. Location is perfect, very close to the beach and easily reachable by transport.

    Luuk2018-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Not many places you can be less then a minute walk to the beach for the price. The place is somehow secluded in a quiet area yet steps to the hip scene of cafes and restaurants. The room was spacious and clean. There were a few bugs here or there but that is a what happens when your down in Kerala. Insects are to be expected when your down south so it in no way reflects on the place. Suresh and his staff made sure I had all the amenities and felt comfortable. He helped me book a taxi to Alleppy and was helpful at telling me where to go and what to see. I would recommend this place in a heart beat. Varkala is a beautiful place on its own but having a comfortable homestay makes it that much better!

    Alana2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is exactly as advertised! Great location to the beach and everything else. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming.

    Lorielyn2017-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Goku's Homestay is a great place for solo travelers. All of my needs were accommodated. Suresh and his wife are very welcoming and he helped provide transportation, arranged tours, and safest routes of travel through the city.

    Let the beautiful coastal town of Varkala melt your worries and tensions away. Varkala’s peaceful seaside cliffs adjoin the Arabian Sea, setting the scene for several water spouts and wellness spas. The waters lapping at Papanasam beach are considered to have holy, sin-cleansing properties, and the nearby Ayurveda treatment centre will cleanse what the ocean missed.
    Ours is a 2BHK independent villa and the entire property is for the guest and no one else is staying in the property. There is a another homestay of same type behind this, which is rented by a Greek lady but she is in Greece till December. Neighbourhood is calm and quite homestays and they are closed down for maintenance. Hence this property is ideal for couple's, family and people who would like to chill out.
  • Nice place, great neighborhood, caal place, close to beach

    Adarsh2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is great place to stay. Walking distance to the beach and still a very quiet place. Nikhil is a very friendly and helpful host that make sure you have everything one can need. He also arranged with a reliable driver that took us for a small trip to the mountains. We gladly recommend Nikhil Gardens for anyone visiting beautiful Varkala.

    Michelle2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nikhil Gardens is one of the best homestay experience i have had in last few years. It is aptly located at a few minutes walk from the Varkala Cliff with a welcoming neighborhood. I travelled to Varkala and stayed at homestay for 2 days with my friends aiming for a relaxing weekend. Patio with the swinging chair and beautiful garden in front was my favorite spot to chill with my friends during my stay. Awesome experience !!!! This review is complete without mentioning about Nikhil. He is an exceptional host with end to end solutions to all your needs at anytime of your stay be it food, car rentals etc etc. He goes out of the way to make your stay at Varkala perfect. Thank You Nikhil for the Heartwarming stay and for rest people reading this, I would highly recommend this place for your next stay in Varkala.

    Isha2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at this place was just awesome. The place is located in a calm neighborhood and is perfect for relaxing. There's also a cliff beach, at a walkable distance from the place. Nikhil was an amazing host. He arranged everything for us - scooty rentals, food, cab etc. One of the best places to stay in Varkala. Would definitely visit again.

    Rupika2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Good location on the quieter and cleaner south side of the cliffs. Short walk to the beach and the temple. 10 mins by easily available rickshaws to the busier north cliffs where there are lots of restaurants. Nikhil is a helpful and resourceful host.

    Murugan2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Overall a good experience. Thanks to Nikhil who helped us to his best intention.

    Sandeep2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent 2BHK facility with well-maintained rooms, clean washrooms, a large kitchen and a lovely front yard and back yard. The host, Nikhil is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and was committed to making our stay pleasant. Nestled in a peaceful and serene area, and within walking distance to the beach, this place is a wonderful option for staying in Varkala.

    Razek2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nikhil’s place is definitely one of the best in Varkala. The location is just a few metres away from Varkala beach and the Cliff. It felt like home as everything was very thoughtfully done. It is very spacious and has a beautiful garden which is well maintained. Nikhil was very quick in responding to all our needs and he also arranged for cabs and food whenever we needed. We had to make few last minute changes to our trip as well and he was very accommodating. He took a lot of effort to make our trip a great one. Overall he was a great host and will definitely come here again the next time we are in Varkala. Thank you Nikhil :)

  • This property has a great location - easy walk to the Clift. If you are on a budget, there is a local Indian a few blocks away that serves great food. Facilities, are impecable, nice size room with attached bathroom. I highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed.

    Ricardo2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had originally booked another accommodation way back in October to ensure we had a place to stay in Varkala for New Year. 3 days before we were due to arrive, the other accommodation cancelled on us because they had overbooked (not even an apology!) So we scrambled around for New Year and came across Riyad’s place on Airbnb. Communication was easy, good location and the place was clean and bright. *Note that there is no air con (which we knew) so it can get very hot if you’re coming during humid weather. We didn’t have time, but yoga is also offered here, as well as breakfast (which we didn’t try but smelt great).

    Angela2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I have a very good time. The accommodation is tidy. Location is also good. Kitchen is also available. The owner does his best to treat the guests.

    Seongho2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I would give 10 stars if I could! Riyad’s hospitality is so appreciated to this solo traveler. From helping me organize taxis, showing me where to get good vegetarian food and taking me to a dr when I was in pain. The room is stylish, perfectly clean and only short walk to the beach. Highly recommend. Thank you for having me Riyad, will be back next year :)

    Laura2019-11-22T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful..enjoyed every moment

    Aalok2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a amazing place with the greatest of sea views, especially when you would want to be in a secluded place away from the chaotic world outside. You can relax in the hammock/bed out there in the verandah with the sounds of the sea. Things you can do out there is have a good walk alongside the cliff and get down in the beaches there. If you still want to go out they have a dedicated autorickshaw for the guests. This place is much suitable for short trips . Food is not bad. The care taker is really sweet and he can cook as per your wishes. In short, Rejuvenating and Relaxing place.

    Koushik2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful. We sat and watched the sunset every evening with our home cooked meal. Mr Jobin was a great host and an excellent cook. We wanted to relax and this place was perfect for that. It was in a quiet area that we really liked. We could take a walk along the cliff top, either to Varkala (with more beaches, lots of shops and restaurants), or we could walk to a local fishing village and watch the hub of activity. We swam in the sea everyday in the quiet beach just in front of the accomodation. Perfect getaway.

    Fiona2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place is like a dream and you have to pinch yourself to believe its beauty •Its so beautifully done even the kind of music thats played is asethitic 🙏 Compared to our stay in Taj Gateway this is pure bliss and Jubin the care taker left no stone to give us food coma :) One of the best sunset of our lives enjoying from the terrece with total privacy except for the coffee and yummy snacks by jubin for company . There is almost a private beach 10 steps away and you can just enjoy the sound of waves with view 24*7. Its a life time experience and we already are planning for our next visit .

    Sandeep2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful stay . The Property was beautiful and everything was well taken care of. Jobin was a very kind and helpful and is a great chef. We enjoyed staying and will definitely recommend it :-)

    Neha2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Perfect place to stay in Varkala with an amazing vue and situation near the beach ! Thanks for Jobim for his kindness and intentions we recommend highly!

    Arielle2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place was way beyond our expectations, especially with the hospitality and cooking included by Jobin. The gorgeous location, comfortable space, lovely walk to Varkala town, semi-private beach next to the apartment, candlelight dinners with homemade wine, fresh juice with breakfast, local tips, the list goes on. I highly recommend giving Privasea a try!

    Tucked away in a little village in Varkala, Villa Akasa is a charming home-stay and just a few minutes walk from a beautiful, untouched beach. We have a total 5 exclusive rooms with "Amrith" being one of them. We have a great team to make your stay comfortable; one of them is Yakko - our lovely dog who is friendly and loved by all who come stay with us. We know what it’s like to live in paradise in God’s Own Country – it’s that amazing experience that we want to share with you.
    • Elegant room with a king sized bed and plenty of room for an additional mattress on the floor in case you are a group of 3 • Private patio to lay back and relax • Airy en suite bathroom with plenty of natural light • Patio opens out to a garden and a pond • Breakfast included • Homely Indian dinner can be arranged if requested in the morning • Free wi-fi • Air conditioners in the room • Taxi to and from the Trivandrum airport can be arranged at an additional charge
    Villa Akasa is in the heart of a village that is still barely touched by tourist development. We invite you to sit out on your private balcony and listen to the unique sounds of village life: the whisper of the coconut trees, the chirping of crickets during the night, the sounds of worship during the day. A short walk down the hill will lead you to the beach. This part of Kerala is geographically unique as it is the only place in Kerala where cliffs touch the Arabian Sea. The aqua green water contrasts with the bright red of the cliffs making this the perfect place to swim and to watch the sun set. Close by there is also a traditional Kerala style temple which is over 2000 years old. This temple is steeped in legend and myth and has an ancient energy; visiting it is a beautiful experience. Other attractions of Kerala - elephant rides, house boat trips along the backwaters, ayurvedic massages and treatments - are easily arranged.
  • Wonderful place - little far from Varkala beach and cliff. Host is really good. Place is neat and positive.

    Vaishnav2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Shama and her team took great care of us. The place is beautiful and peaceful, away from the more busy center of Varkala. We had some nice dinners and breakfasts at the patio outside our room, and Shama was helpful when I needed to book an early taxi to go to the airport.

    Emilia2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The homestay of Shama is in a very quiet neighbourhood a little bit outside the main touristy area but easily reachable by Rikscha or a 20min walk. It has several rooms. The staff is very helpful and Shama is very friendly. She has a great knowledge about Verkala especially and the region generally.

    Tatiana2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place to relax and unwind. It was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and has given me a reason to revisit Varkala and put up at Amrith again. Each corner of the room and bathroom was sparkling clean with special effort on decorating it so tastefully and sustainably. I am short of words to describe how beautiful the stay was , specially the bathroom 🌴. The staffs were helpful and Yakko is adorable. Absolutely loved it ❤️

    Oindrila2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you are nature loving and need a peaceful serene environment with amenities like AC you can surely enjoy here. The hospitality was perfect starting from welcome drink again for breakfast the taste was really awesome. The helipad is nearby and you can enjoy the beauty of the beach . Overall nice experience even it was a one day trip. Shama is a superb host even she is not well , she did the best and if you are pet friendly this is the bestest..

    Arthe2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Vila Akasa is a beautiful and a tastefully done property tucked in south cliff of varkala. The host and helps are amazing and very well mannered.

    Varkala Beach, also known as Papanasham Beach is a beach in Varkala, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India, along the Arabian Sea, part of the Indian Ocean. The word Papanasham means wash away sins. It is believed that a dip in the waters of Papanasham Beach washes away all the sins in one's life. Varkala beach is the only place in southern Kerala where cliffs are found adjacent to the Arabian Sea. These tertiary sedimentary formation cliffs are a unique geological feature on the otherwise flat Kerala coast, and is known among geologists as Varkala Formation and a geological monument as declared by the Geological Survey of India. There are numerous water spouts and spas on the sides of these cliffs.The beach is a haven for sun-bathing and swimming. The evening views of the sunset are worth lingering over. There are several small restaurants and snack shops near and around Papanasham beach, which attracts the maximum visitors both for leisure as well as for religious reasons. It's 107 years old. Geologists found out that. Interesting things are got to know from them.

There are many places to explore nearby and also some other beautiful scenic hotspots all accessible within a planned day trip. Varkala is not a party place like Goa due to the alcohol restrictions in Kerala but nonetheless we have some nice restaurants where parties take place and we have smaller events planned throughout the high season.
  • Very nice location with its own restaurant, super delicious cafe, own yoga shala and teacher, very friendly and pleasant staff, great location and and and ... Can only recommend mad about Coco.

  • I would definitely recommend Anita's place to travellers visiting Varkala. Situated very close to the beach and close to a lot of good restaurants and cafes, this place is a definite catch. And being a dog lover myself Anita's place was heaven. Apart from all of that they were very quick to respond to our queries, give suggestions of restaurants to visit and the rooms were very clean and neat too. P.S. They also serve a really good breakfast (included) if you are looking for one more incentive to book this place :)

  • Anita’s Mad about coco is a wonderful wonderful place! I extended my stay from 2 nights to two weeks. The Team is very sweet and friendly and they really want, that you’re happy. Anita is a very Strong, hard working women. We had wonderful conversation and she was also wonderful when I was sick here. I felt so good and comfortable here and when you pay only a bit more, you have a very good breakfast included where you can chose every day something else. So all in all wonderful wonderful wonderful. I will come back! Thank you so much Anita +Team <3

  • MAD about Coco lives up to its promise: a central yet very quiet location, a spacious room with a large balcony (hammock chair!) Large towels plus beach towels. Delicious drinks and great breakfast. Anita and the entire staff are friendly and competent, the whole area is green and well maintained and environmentally friendly ... Highly recommended!

  • Amazing location, great staff to help you with your queries, explorations and arrangements, good food and a lovely vibe that will make you want to keep coming back. Also, can't skip mentioning the cutest dogs and puppies always playing at the property, makes your stay even better.

  • Fantastic feel-good atmosphere, especially in an environment where it is really confusing, which offers are the most suitable for oneself, we could already be sure because of the photos and descriptions: that's it!
