Jasar's place is an absolute private space for a refreshing weekend. You can go back rejuvenated. The cottage has all the amenities. Among the things present in Jasar's place we loved the recliner and the hammock in the front. We would definitely love to visit Jasar's place again.

Amazing cliff side location near Varkala beach. Breakfast served with style by caretaker. Worth going to Varkala just for this place. Great for R&R. If you go by car, navigate to Manthara temple and request a meetup with the host Jasar there.

The cottages are beautifully maintained and very stylishly designed on the interior. We visited here out of season and it was idyllic. Well worth the trip!

My stay at Jasar's cottage was perfect. The location is great, right on the cliff where I enjoyed beautiful sunsets, and morning/evening prayer sounds from the local temple and mosque. It's a bit of a walk to nearest restaurants, which was my only gripe esp. for dinner. The nearest sandy beaches are also a 5-10 min walk away. The property is well equipped with a refrigerator and kettle in the room, and access to a full kitchen on-premise. The south indian breakfasts from Jasar's kitchen were super tasty. The quality of furnishings and upkeep is top-class, and it has a great shower. I loved my naps in the hammock with ocean breeze blowing. The caretaker, Sharad, lives onsite and helps with fresh tea/coffee/juices. I enjoyed my conversations with Jasar, the complimentary pickup/drop from Varkala was much appreciated. Overall, I highly recommend Jasar's place if you're looking for a quiet stay away from the crowds.

Jasar was a lovely host checking on us every morning to make sure we were happy with our stay and brought good breakfast. The cottage was great - comfortable, equipped with all you'll need on a holiday, and located in a lovely setting right next to the beach. It is right next to a path that will take you up to Varkala beach in about 30 mins walk. The accommodation is a short walk from restaurants and hotels but quite far from anything else. We quite liked the isolation but when we wanted to go for a wander it was as easy as getting a Tucktuck. There's a little tea stall and a shop at the entrance to the temple (2 min walk) where you can buy snacks and drinks and stuff. We Would definitely stay here again.

This was an absolutely delightful stay! Jasar is a wonderful and attentive host. He helped us organise our transport and took time to show us around the surroundings. The cottage is so wonderfully set up for a getaway and in such a stunning location. The home cooked breakfasts are spectacular and unbeatable! Having access to what seems like our own secluded beach makes the experience even more unique. While it is a bit of a distance (10 mins - 25 mins for central Varkala cliff) from restaurants - it is such a lovely stroll. It is also nice to be away from the craziness and crowds of central Varkala. Can't wait to go back!

Being bored by the routine technical work I thought differently. Because I am so passionate about Tourism and my grandparents passed away leaving behind the legacy, a beautiful 5 acres coconut farm land located on a beautiful cliff overlooking the Arabian sea, 2 luxury cottages were built. I am interested in meeting different people and sharing culture, food and knowledge. I treat my guests with the passion and provide them great quality services and delicious local food from my grandmother' kitchen. I would do the best to make my guests satisfied during their stay with us.
