“Mesmerising Feeling. Far From Chaos...Close To Nature.”
Reviewed 20 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The sea facing private vila is the perfect gift stay you can give to anyone you love. The hygiene, clean environment calmness and friendly cook. I can't thank Mr.Benny to give us such an assistance personally. The amazing Keral-lite home cooked food and a open small garden to finish it all facing the sea was an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended to go here an spend some days. Nights are even better when you can hear the sea talking. This area is a little isolated but safe. Its too private to be forgotten. Visiting places near by is also easy. Just catch an Auto, and it takes you to places of wonders. Just 5 mints away is Kadaltheram Ayurvedic Spa, which gives you the best Ayurvedic massages.

“Nice room but too far from averything”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

The interior of the villa is very nice, colourful and clean. The small garden is cute as advertised.

They advertise that there is a free parking place, however, no car can possibly reach the place, only an auto-rickshaw or a scooter can get through.

The place is very remote and goes through a maze of small non paved roads to get there.

The view to the sea from the cliff where the villa is located is very nice but there are no accessible beaches because they are wet by the waves hiting the shore and barred by big rocks.

You have to pay a rickshaw 220 roupies for every comuting to town and the same for return since they will charge the empty return fee.

The place is, in our opinion, only good for solitary retreat unless you can bear with a long walk (said to be 3.5km along the shore - we haven't tried this since it was so hot and damp) to Varkala or you have a scooter.

Right in front of a beach. Quiet and clean place. Perfect for romantic couples :-)

Care taker was good and helping. Had a great vacation filled with beach and happiness.
Sun set is superb. Overall a good place to hangout if you love beach :-)

“the room with a view...”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Right on top of the cliff, away from the maddening crowd, this home stay with an amazing view will definitely make you write poems even if you never wrote one... take a drink..sit in the verandah and I guarantee the most romantic holiday you ever had in privasea....

“Great location and beauty, with some small issues”
Reviewed 15 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The location is unique in Varkala, right on the cliff, secluded with only some local small houses around, with cows and goats.
The garden around is small and nice.
Considering that we are in India, the standard is good enough, In this regard anyway it is a little bit expensive, you pay above all for location.
Wifi with an internet key is really good.

On booking, we asked and was confirmed for the presence of a kitchen, but when we arrived, we renounced since we felt the kitchen that was offered was not ok from a hygienical point of view.
The bathroom is good but it is difficult to get a warm good shower.
The place, as said, is secluded and not always a guardian was there during the night. Nevertheless we never had problems! But consider that, if you like to sleep in a protected environment.
When we arrived the house was not really clean, but when we remarked that, right away the care taker organized a good cleaning “session”.
The caretaker is very present, but not always he accomplishes what you ask: for example, once arrived we asked to put a simple mosquito net on the house door (no mosquito net on the bed), but in two weeks this had never happened, in spite of our reminders
