The Hermit Crab is a quaint little guest house by the Serenity Beach. If you want to experience life on a beach, then you have stumbled upon the right place. While the guest house emulates the bygone era of the french, it also gives you a glimpse of life by the coast.

The space
One word that describes the room is comfort. Get a home away from home right on the beach. With an old grandfather's bed with a cosy mattress, forget all your worries. Wake up to the waves crashing and the sun right above the horizon beckoning you.
A wardrobe for your essentials and a washroom which meets your basic requirements.

Minimalist with a touch of oriental, the room will make you feel welcome. A red wall is the most attractive part of room and you are more than welcome to click as many selfies against it

Guest access
There is an open shower in the courtyard. The guests are requested to use the shower to wash off any sand coming from the beach. The terrace of the guest house is open to all and has an amazing view of the bay, is also quiet breezy throughout the day. A perfect to relax and catch the sunrise or a moonrise.

With the outstanding beach spreading out majestically almost at the doorstep of The Hermit Crab, one cannot hope for a better neighborhood in terms of scenic beauty. The sea has unique personality of its own and offers different kinds of experiences to its admirers, albeit all magical, at different times of the year. Calm and serene in the summers and playfully naughty in the winters. Take long walks at any time of the day, or simply sit on the beautiful piers and enjoy a breathtaking sunrise or if you are lucky a stunning moon rise. And it doesn't end there.

There are surf schools in the vicinity for the adventure seeking souls and those looking to explore the gastronomical delights, the neighborhood doesn't disappoint. There is a decent variety of options which deliver to The Hermit Crab. A restaurant at a stone throw distance, is open for breakfast and is quite popular for its seafood selection. However, come the weekend and the local fisherman set up stalls by the beach, serving some scrumptious and lip smacking fresh sea food cooked to perfection in local flavors.

I came to Pondi as a kid and totally fell in love with the place and it's streets, food and beaches. Not much of a city person, so after having tried my hand at being a chef in the cities, I decided to move back to this place I love to call my home and start The Hermit Crab. I always look forward to meeting various people from different walks of life and sharing stories with them.
