The space

Enjoy a laid-back sunny day with a cool breeze or a party night by the beach along with your friends, family or colleagues at Kadal. Kadal is a beach house set up at a picturesque location few steps away from the beach at Vadanamelli very close to the Nemmeli seawater desalination plant at the scenic east coast road.

Kadal is dedicated to those who enjoy the company of others. Indoors consists of a dorm with a kitchenette, stocking a kettle, tea bags, milk power etc, at one end and a bedroom both with toilets attached and air-conditioned.

We rented the place out for one night, as a family group of six adults and four children. The facilities were exactly as described, and cleanliness and fit / finish was surprisingly good for a place frequented by large groups. The caretakers were very helpful but not overbearing and knew when exactly to come in and help. Bedding provided was of high standard and clean, and bathrooms were spotless. Best part of it is the location, as it is right on the beach. One drawback is the littering of bottles around the property by the general public that use the beach, and we were nervous to allow the children to walk around by themselves. Overall a great experience and would surely want to return for a longer stay in future!

Kadal - A small piece of heaven. We checked in to Kadal on 1st Jan. After the 31st night party we were all super tired and all we wanted to do was hit the sack and sleep all day. But, we booked the place for our family and wanted them to have a good time too. The sea breeze lifted our spirits and we started having super fun in no time. Loved the basketball court. It's a pet Friendly place, make sure you take your dog there. My Dark (dog) had a great time and he just knew he was on a holiday too. Sleeping in the tent was an experience. Kamal (the host) was a great guy. He managed to take us to a nearby fishermen's boat to get some nice prawns the next day. Great place to hangout with family and friends and I will go back again. A swimming pool will complete Kadal. Hopefully when I plan next time.

After a bit of search on Airbnb, we chanced upon BHive and it became our choice of stay, hands down! The pictures just appealed to us so much and we thought it would be the best place for the 8 member group that we were. I requested to book and was immediately contacted by Balaji. The entire process of reservation was completed swiftly. Balaji explained everything about the place and accepted my reservation only after he was thoroughly convinced that I had no further queries about the place. Later on, I was contactd by Jayashree who explained about the food options and also mailed us this 10+ pages note on Bhive with all possible details about the place. I simply loved that about them. The D day arrived and off we went. We had a bit of a trouble locating the place but that was soon addressed by Kamalakannan ( the caretaker) who came in a bike to the main road and guided us. We eagerlu kept looking at every building we passed by, wondering which one was our stay. And there she stood! The beauty. It was amazingly picturesque. We were all just enthralled by the place and each one of us took a few min just standing transfixed! It was a perfect lazing out spot. The guys played cricket, volleyball and on the trampoline while we just lazed out in thr hammocks or drank tea sitting on the chairs facing the sea. The room in itself is a well designed structure with a single private room (attached bathroom) and a large hall like room (wherein a single cot and few mattresses were provided). There is a bathroom in the hall as well as outside. A kitchenette helps you in making bread toasts, tea, coffee, etc. There is a RO purifier for drinking watet needs. Kamalakannan and his team are amazing caretakers who just provide you with so much privacy despite staying in the property just near the gates. The food options were limited to few but it was just so well done ( Order needs to be placed well in advance). We couldn't be more happy. There's also a restaurant called Chili 49 nearby from where you an order food. They set up a campfire for us, connected us with a bluetooth speaker, provided us with indoor games and even a cute little tent! It was the best relaxing vacation I could ask for. I still can remember just spending hours gazing into the beach! Each of our friend have already made their own plans to visit the place again and I can't wait to visit this gem of a place once again!I must thank Balaji & Jayashree for putting this place on Airbnb! Much love

Amazing! We were a group of friends and we had a ball here. The sea is in front of you, the villa inside is tastefully furnished, the restaurant Chilis 49 serves delish food and the caretakers are very helpful at the same time unobtrusive too. Phones / net does not work great, which is actually good news, because one can truly unwind here. KADAL is right now the best beachhouse in Chennai! That said, it definitely is not for elders or those particular about their personal space, because this is, put simply, a one bedroom villa, an awesome one at that, but there is only one bedroom as such, so this is a great place for friends who don't mind camping outside in the sweet tents / hammock, when the rooms inside are full! All in all, an excellent weekender villa - and quite affordable too, if you come in large numbers - near Chennai. Highly recommended for the right audience :)

The overall experience of the stay was very good and pleasant. The Staffs (Kamalakannan & Govind) are very courteous. The property was the same as explained in the listing. All the items provided to us as Snacks, Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner were delicious. The responsiveness of Jayashree is prompt and clear on my each and every clarification.

My friends and I loved our stay at Kadal. It's a great place to visit with a group. We played volleyball, jumped around on the trampoline, relaxed on the hammocks and had a great time overall. The caretakers were very helpful and anticipated our needs well in advance. The only thing we missed in this heat was a pool but the beach a few feet away makes up for it. Would definitely go back again!
