Traditional 140 year old wooden cabin from my home town we assembled on top of our modern house in Trivandrum. It has a separate entrance. It’s a quiet place about 5 kilometers from the city centre (40 rupee by riksja). Our home is situated on a small hill surrounded by palm trees, close to the Hindu Sree Hanuman Swamy Temple. Our neighborhood has a very friendly and nice mix of people, residential and social homes. There is an temple and ashram at the end of our road and a karate school nearby.
The wooden house is originally from Kottayam and consists of a bedroom, bathroom with hot water, small pantry with hot water boiler for making tea and a patio with a separate sundeck with a view. The two beds can be used as one king size bed or as two individual beds. There are two ceiling ventilators in the house. There is a patio with ceiling fan and sundeck with a view attached for your private use. Wifi and hot water are provided.
Our neighborhood on the east side of Trivandrum is located on a small hill and has a nice mix of residential and social homes. It’s an easy walk to the Parakovil/Thrichakrapuram Sri Krishna Swamy Temple and Ashram at the end of the road (Parakovil Road), and there are various other small temples and mosques in the area. There is a small karate school for youths nearby, which welcomes visitors to watch or join the training. Close to the Natural History Museum and post office. Ricksha ride to and from the centre approximately 100 rupees
  • Ramesh and his family were so warm and welcoming. They were super helpful in helping me coordinate my plans. Would love to come back. Thanks for everything!!

  • Ramesh's place was very private and cosy. It was around 10 to 15 mins (driving) away from all the local sights and museums. it was a comfortable stay! Would definitely recommend to all travellers!

    Anannya2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was wonderful! Loved to come back to a peaceful atmosphere after the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s a very spacious and well kept traditional cabin with small fridge and kitchenette to prepare coffee every morning. Important to mention that Rani is the best cook in Trivandrum! Our breakfast was phenomenal and will definitely miss it. Mr. Ramesh is super attentive and great host making sure everything was made right. Overall this place is a gem. Thanks a lot for the experience.

    Anna2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden jewel away from the busyiness of the city. We stayed 5 nights in comfort, calm and with wonderful hospitality. Rani was generous of her time and very helpful, which made this stay a home from home experience. I can not recommend this enough!

  • Great communication. Maryse and Reiner were friendly and helpful. Boutique house with a good ambience.

    Melanie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This homestay is at an absolutely stunning location. The beach is just a walk away and it is quite clean. I've not seen a cleaner beach in India. For lunch/dinner you can choose to dine at Nikki's nest which is close by and offers good food. The kovalam beach road is about 10 kms from this place and offers other dining options.

    Gyan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Maryse and her husband are such warm and lovely hosts. They made our stay very comfortable with all the arrangements, easy parking, extra key setup, convenient entry access, touristy tips and suggestions, lovely homemade breakfasts, long chats about their adventures and experiences in life and so on. The room we stayed in was very spacious and was well kept with all the amenities. Also, the house is perfectly tucked in a calm and serene location with the sea situated very close to it. All in all, we were very happy with the stay and would definitely recommend it to others.

    Nishant2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable room in great location just steps from the beach. The owners were wonderful hosts and great conversationalists. It was fascinating to hear the the stories of their lives - we felt like we were staying with old friends. Maryse is an excellent cook and prepared a delicious dinner one night. Do yourself a favor and stay there.

    Kim2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Clam, quiet place away from busy, crowded beaches. Very nice couple, friendly hosts. Great interaction with them, got some valuable tips too by listening to their travel experiences. Stay in this place definitely deserve more than a day to explore surroundings. If you have a personal transport or hiring a car/bike rental, must include this BNB in your itinerary.

    Guruprasad N2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • By far the best Airbnb experience I've had. Beautiful location, there's a path through it that leads to chowra beach. Had interesting conversations with the host and they took us to a hike which had an amazing view.

    Shaili2019-11-02T00:00:00Z

The only thing that cost us was to leave !!! Marise is very timely and with her practice to move in the Indian chaos, she solved everything we needed.

    Madhav2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We checked in in the afternoon and easily explored Kovalam beach, a two minute walk away. This property is right next door to the lighthouse and the can see the ocean from the terrace. There are tuk tuks right outside the apartments if you wanted to travel further. The host was friendly and provided breakfast in the morning before check out. This place is also known as Abad Service Villas to help with directions.

    Hannah2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place right near a beautiful secluded beach. It’s the perfect location away from the main stretch but still within walking distance. The place is minimal, clean and comfortable and the hosts are very kind and accommodating. A simple breakfast is provided every morning as well as water bottles for the day. Highly recommend if you are staying in the area!

    Yuka2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • Highly recommend! This resort was clean; well supplied with toilet paper, towels, soap, and a hot water shower; and was very close to the gorgeous beach and lots of great restaurants, as well as the lighthouse with its dancing fountains! Also the breakfast each day was excellent!

    Beatrice2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I had a wonderful time at this air bnb. It was a 5 minute walk from a much nicer and quieter beacher than the one which was full of people trying to sell you stuff. The room was clean and spacious with a comfy bed. The shower had great pressure and was hot. I would highly recommend staaying here for a pleasant stay in Kovalam.

    Rebecca2019-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • If you are in Kovalam, this place is a way to go! Superb location, just 3 mins walk to the beach. I want to thanks to our caretaker, he is the best!

    Tucked away in the heart of Chowara Kovalam and just a walk away from a secluded sandy beach, this retreat is just perfect for an away–from–it–all gathering --- whether with large family or a group of friends. We recommend that you walk the coastal path, pack a picnic, sunbathe on the rooftop or sign up for an authentic ayurvedic experience nearby (tailored packages exclusively for our guests!) while you enjoy this simply divine coastal getaway.
  • Great place close to town and shops and the beach. This beach is so much better than in Kovalam and it's just about 15 min away. The hosts were lovely. I would recommend a room with AC because it is very hot there, even at night. I will come back!

    Vanessa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing stay. Ashish is a superhost for sure. I got all the help I needed for my trip. He also arranged an early morning cab for drop at airport.

  • Do not hesitate to book here. Anitha is an amazing host the the location is a hidden gem. Only two minutes walk from a nearly empty beach and close enough to shops and outside food. Anitha and her staff were wonderful and even met me at the railway station to make sure I did not get lost. Their hospitality is above beyond. Amazing location quiet, incredible breakfast, and a perfect place away from the crowds with forest and beach and even wild peacocks. Book here and see the real Kerala for a fraction of the piece. It’s worth every penny. Can not recommend enough!

  • A very good Ayurvedic treatment place for body relaxation and purification. Can expect a homely atmosphere

    Vijai2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Anitha is such a lovely lady. She made our stay so easy! We spent a week doing Ayurvedic treatments and she arranged everything for us, from transfers, to food, to daily yoga, to meetings with the doctor. She is a beautiful soul, as are Biju and his family. The massage therapists and yoga teachers were also wonderful. In terms of location, it's ideal if you want to be away from the big resorts but still close enough to walk (2 minutes) to the beach! Thank you so much!

The view from the balcony is great if you wish to spend your holiday surrounded by forests and seas :) Sreejith's mother cooked some really great sumptuous food for us.

Second, the place is wonderfully well kept and managed with sparkling clean rooms. Third, the host family is one of the best hosts me and my friends have ever come across.

Fourth, if you want any guidance on what all places you can visit for sight seeing nearby, they can offer you the best prices, guidance and conveyance to visit these places.

    Kovalam, Kerala, India

    Hotel Sea Breeze is a very popular mid-range hotel in Kovalam. Our guest accommodation is set in a mature garden, tucked away from the beach vendors. The famous busy Lighthouse Beach is a short stroll from Sea Breeze. (2 to 3 minutes) Airport and Railway Station are in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) 30 mins from Sea Breeze. Rooms at Sea Breeze are set on three floors and include Sea Breeze Chalet. Ideally situated for Yoga, Ayurveda, Kalaripayattu (martial arts) and exploring South Kerala.
    Guest Rooms in Hotel Sea Breeze are set on three floors. Each en-suite room is fitted with a ceiling fan. Rooms sleep two in single beds or can be arranged as a double bed if preferred. Tariff is for the room not per person. DISCOUNTS FOR LONG TERM STAY The calendar here records vacancies for only ROOM 201. Some other rooms are also listed on this website. All rooms are similar to this listing except Room 101 (The Chalet) which is slightly separate to the rest of the hotel and has its own private sit-out and entrance. Hotel Sea Breeze is in the popular beach resort of Kovalam. This region of Kerala is very like Goa and has been growing in size and popularity since the flower power days of the 1960s. Kovalam is located in the district of Thiruvananthapuram – quite a mouthful! Even the locals generally call it Trivandrum. The Airport is in Trivandrum and so is the main Railway Station. Lighthouse Beach is a short walk from Hotel Sea Breeze – 2 or 3 minutes. TELLING IT LIKE IT IS ... Kovalam was initially a fishing village with beautiful beaches lined with coconut trees. Now, you could be forgiven for thinking you had landed in Benidorm. High rise accommodation has sprouted up everywhere as landowners try to attract the tourists. Some of these structures are illegal construction, so the powers that be could, in theory, have them removed. However, India thrives on bribery from a few rupees to crores of rupees and Kovalam is no exception. While bribes continue to be paid, illegal buildings will stand. The likeness to Benidorm ends with the new high rise buildings as a quick scout around the area will confirm. The Indian people are not good at maintenance. ‘Build it and leave it’, seems to be the motto. This is partly due to the caste system which still pervades. There is an attitude of ‘its not my job’ especially when it comes to cleaning toilets! It is also partly due to the monsoon season which has to be experienced to appreciate how difficult it is to keep a respectable veneer on the buildings. The monsoon weather is relentless in its destructive powers - but fascinating to watch. It always surprises me how children wearing bright clean crisp school uniforms pop out from dingy buildings on their way to equally dingy schools. At the end of the day, still without a messy blob on them, the kids return home with happy smiling faces. India might have a space programme but it has a lot to learn about creating and maintaining an infrastructure. Consequently, if you step off the mock Victorian promenade of Lighthouse Beach, you will quickly discover where the rubbish goes! Bottles are heaped up behind walls awaiting the Bottle Collector. This is a bi-product of tourism. Plastics and other throw-away items magically disappear in developed countries while India must burn or bury rubbish, or find another use for it. Generally nothing is wasted in India, hence the Bottle Collector will remove them - eventually. While on holiday in Goa, I tried to help by picking up the street rubbish around my accommodation and putting it in my room bin. It took a few days for me to realise, my host threw it back into the street each day! This will also be true of Kovalam, so do try to create as little waste as possible. With Climate Change in mind, more tourists are aware of these things. Electricity supply all over India is somewhat erratic. They even have set times when the current will go off. This can be fun but not if you are in the shower in the dark and wondering where the towel might be! There are some very good solar power and wind up torches available now. Suggest you take one with you. Most of the water in Kovalam comes from wells. It is generally safe. These guys have been digging wells for hundreds of years. (The well digging caste of course!) They know what they are doing. However, taking care of tummies is always a good idea, otherwise the holiday could be spent on the toilet – or hovering over one if you dare to use the Indian squat version. Acidophilus tablets help keep the digestion in order. A bit like eating yogurt, acidophilus boosts the good bacteria which helps prevent ‘Delhi Belly’. Lighthouse Beach is lined with small restaurants and gift shops. The restaurants serve a wide variety of meals and snacks – Indian, Continental and Chinese. Also there are tailors who will stitch you an outfit to order - within hours. It is common practice to wander up and down the sea front promenade in the evenings. Strangely enough (and I still don’t know how the locals do this), they soon know who you are and where you are staying! Some restaurants have extraordinary long menus. They can be fun to read with such offers as ‘scream bled eggs’ and ‘shew heded roundels lossed in soya’! The first is no doubt scrambled eggs but the latter? Your guess is as good as mine! The days fishing catch (and sometimes yesterdays) is often displayed outside the restaurants to lure in customers. BEER – Most of us enjoy a beer on a hot summers day. In Kovalam, beer is available but it could arrive at your table in a teapot, or the bottle might be wrapped in newspaper and placed under the table. Alcohol licences are very expensive in Kerala, no doubt controlled by gangsters and police. The restaurant owners resort to the good old bribe system and we must be thankful for that! The sand on the South Kerala beaches is black in parts – rather like the volcanic beaches of Lanzarote. The beaches are well used. Some people are adventurous enough to try body surfing on the waves. Beware of strong currents in the waters off Lighthouse Beach. They can be dangerous. Unlike the rest of Kerala it is quite normal to sunbathe and swim wearing skimpy cossies. There was a time when Kerala men would bus in to see the half naked foreigners and their strange activities. Now they are used to such sights and will probably just try to sell you something. The popularity of Kovalam has partly grown around the availability of the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda and traditional medicines. There are many Ayurveda Centres within the resort. Certain standards have been stipulated for the running of such an establishment – but there are always those bribes – so do make sure you are not being massaged with old cooking oil. Yoga is also very popular and many studios can be found in and around Kovalam. Tuition in Kalaripayattu (Kerala martial arts) can also be found, though only a basic grounding can be expected during a short holiday. It takes years of dedication to become expert. Hotel Sea Breeze can arrange Ayurveda, Yoga and Kalaripayattu. If you tire of the beach, Trivandrum is a good place for a day out. Thirteen kilometres from Kovalam, - buses, taxis, auto-rickshaws will get you there. Shopping is good and lots to see and do. Ten kilometres from Kovalam is the Valiyathura Pier. Here the fishermen cast their boats into the water and then dive in after them. The 214m long pier offers magnificent views of the coast. Visitors to South Kerala must try to see Kanyakumari (Cape Comorin). This is the southern-most tip of mainland India. It is suggested that there once existed a continent called Kumari Kandam to the south of Kanyakumari, often compared with Lemuria. This journey can include a visit to the Padmanabhapuram Palace. The palace was constructed around 1601. It is one of the best examples of traditional Kerala architecture. Very nice – recommend it. A stay at Sea Breeze gives you a comfortable bed in a convenient location - budget style. You will hear jungle noises from wild life hiding in trees within the grounds which can give a wonderful feeling of relaxation - the unforgettable sounds of India.
    Kovalam is a popular resort bustling with tourists from all over the world. The beaches are full of interesting people enjoying the Kerala sun and gossiping in restaurants on the promenade. That's the way it is during the tourist season October to April. In monsoon, the sea rages, most tourists disappear and it is difficult to even see a glimpse of the beach. For those who choose to stay, Kovalam in monsoon is an ideal location to get away from it all, watch and listen to the rain, enjoy the odd sunny days and catch up with thoughts. It is also the best time to take Ayurveda. During monsoon, some gift shops and beach restaurants remain open.
  • It was OK. Clean and quite place with friendly personnel.

  • Sea Breeze was perfectly located just a few minute's walk from Kovalam Beach, with some great places to eat nearby. The room was nice and in a quiet area - would recommend to others.

  • Very nice place to stay. The location is perfect - the beach is only 2min walk but it is peacful and calm there. Clean and nice rooms, very helpful staff. Thanks, it was great, I miss my nice room here in Goa now:)

    Marta2016-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our short stay at SeaBreeze was lovely. We arrived in the afternoon on a Friday and were met by Suresh, who showed us to the chalet, a private little room with an attached bathroom and a sit out. The living space was exactly as it is described. Clean and with basic amenities like fresh towels and soap. The yards have tall trees and marigold flowers. We returned after one-night's stay on Monday afternoon, and were allotted a room on the 3rd floor. The Lighthouse beach on Kovalam is just a 5-minute walk away. SeaBreeze is also close to a fresh coconut water vendor, some vegetarian restaurants. For sea food, we had to walk up to the promenade on the beach. Thank you Lynn and your team for the warm hospitality.

    Sonia2015-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • SeaBreeze is a budget hotel not 10 minutes' walk from an amazing beach, with 4-star employees. Lynne responded immediately to all my inquiries in the weeks before I arrived. Once there, both Sireshes were knowledgeable and attentive. Manu was a wonderful guide. The SeaBreeze is amazingly quiet - only peacocks to "disturb" the peace. I hope there is a room available. next year!

    Mary Ellen2015-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The SeaBeeze is a fantastic place to stay for the money, It is a five minute walk to the beach, the rooms are clean and well looked after. I would definatley stay there again

    It’s a small wooden cabin, more than 100 years old, with old decor. Suitable for young couple. Low ceiling, placed on stills , surrounded by mango trees. There is a splendid view from the cabin .its a smaller version of the big main wooden cabin we have .its like staying in a wooden tree house in a forest .surrounded by trees and birds in a quite residential area in the city .in 15 minutes one can reach the city center .International airport is 11 kms and train station 6 kms from the location
    The place is situated in a quite residential area in the city , on top of a hill
  • A treat to experience an authentic Keralan wooden cottage in quiet residential area complete with kitchen and bathroom amenities and fans. Dosa and sambar breakfast with banana curry also very good. The hosts have 3 rescue dogs which is nice too.

    Pamela Ruth2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Dilip2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The traditional cabin set among the trees and bird song is a wonderful place to stay. Ramesh and Rani were warm and generous and I felt very sad to leave. Rani’s cooking is full of flavours and delicious. Thank you both for my trips out in your good company . Karen

    Karen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Harini2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What a beautiful place! Really is like a small tree house. Lovely garden, lovely space, lovely hosts, lovely area-soooooo quiet!! Hardly heard a hoot!! They are available to help find you when you are lost to 😂 Nice dogs! Nice food! Really have nothing bad to say.

    Christene2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ramesh and Rani have a beautiful space that they have maintained with immense amounts of love. Our stay here was comfortable and extremely memorable. Their hospitality (the breakfast, the dogs, the engaging conversations) are just as valuable as the room that they provide. We had an amazing time at this place and look forward to visiting it again super soon!

    Namaste I am a health professional and yoga teacher working in India and Europe. I began to host at 'Parampara" since 2016 because I wanted to share my experience of receiving rest, recovery and rejuvenation through Ayurveda and Yoga in Trivandrum. At Parampara, we offer a taste of traditional Indian hospitality. The Kovalam Beach and its leisure activities are less than 5 min away. Ayurveda consultation, massage and Yoga classes can be arranged on request.
    The rooms are spacious with en-suite toilet and bathroom in a Kerala Cottage. The accommodation is serene and quiet. It is very close to Kovalam beach and holiday activities. There is a private terrace and a patio garden where guests can relax - reading, lazing in sunshine and connecting with nature. The beach and the beach activities are only a short walk away. Local sight seeing, experiences of yoga and Ayurvedic massages can be arranged on-site. We are within 30 min drive from the airport and Trivandrum train station. Pick up and drop off can be arranged.
    The place is unique in offering quiet and serene stay along with proximity to the beach and water activities, with easy access to Trivandrum city and local and National Highways.
  • Your on location, Host, Personal Chef, Day/Night Guard, give you an umbrella in the rain, escort by local bus (do it once) to the big city to get provisions etc..... go to, stand up guy is Moorthi. I can say he made my first 8 days ever in India a breeze! A true gentlemen who treats his guests with consideration and patience. (Sorry I wasn’t always on time for meals) A guru in his own right: “Purification of the body/mind...” “Eat healthy, sleep well, don’t get so hung up about the money...” He will stay with me for a long time. If the timing is right take a Tuk Tuk from Trivandrum airport to Kovalam. It’s less money and more enjoyable. The grounds and balconies are very relaxing and the group dining area which may be private at times is an extra bonus. A Temple nearby requires one to get accustomed to the orchestra of bells, music and tropical birds! When you are in your room it quickly dissolves. If you want to place that is very personal, with a private chef and you like walking 10 minutes the beach this is your place. You can find everything on the street outside, money changer, amazing juice cafe, small convenience shops, other restaurants, Ayurvedic treatment and Yoga which, (although a bit pricier than other places) was thorough and conducted by a teacher who has been there for 20 plus years and knows his stuff. Enjoy your stay and eat at Moorthis on site cafe (additional charge) and you will be perfect. 😉

    Anuj2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • this place is a gem. a beautiful round building, marvelous hosts, clean and comfortable, and awesome breakfasts and tea. as i was forewarned, the temple next door was having their annual festival this week in march, which involves lots of music for the neighborhood. amidst the bell ringing, drumming, chanting,and community meals, there was some of the most celestial vocal music i have heard in my life. less than five minutes to the beachfront and they took great care of me. six stars.

    Matthew2018-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Place is as described. Don’t expect 5* but the value for what you get is great. The breakfasts and evening meals cooked by Moorthi were superb and great value.

    Matthew2018-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The proposed room is minimalist, spacious and clean. The balcony is very accommodating. The accommodation is located away from tourist areas, but nevertheless a few minutes from the beach. Lal (owner) responds quickly and clearly to questions. He is inclined to recommendations. Moorthy, when he is as warm as benevolent. Unless you master Tamil or Malamayan, communication will be a little difficult, but his smile and attention go beyond the language barrier. Do not misunderstand: the kitchen is not accessible to you since it is the kingdom of Moorthy who reigns supreme. He will prepare, at your request, delicious and fresh dishes whose quality and price are out of competition in this very tourist area where the restaurants offer quality-price meals very disappointing. We highly recommend it.

    Gabrielle2018-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Tucked away in the heart of Chowara Kovalam and just a walk away from a secluded sandy beach, this retreat is just perfect for an away–from–it–all gathering --- whether with large family or a group of friends. We recommend that you walk the coastal path, pack a picnic, sunbathe on the rooftop or sign up for an authentic ayurvedic experience nearby (tailored packages exclusively for our guests!) while you enjoy this simply divine coastal getaway.
  • Possibly the best hosts on the whole platform.

    Mickey2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The staff were so helpful (two young men) they were more than happy to help us with anything, including sorting out our money as we had difficulty with the local ATMs. They advised us good local places to visit and things to see and do. We asked for a traditional Indian breakfast and they went to special effort to provide for us. Room was super clean and very spacious with a lovely balcony. There is also a roof space with gorgeous views of the sea which guests are allowed to use for yoga, loads of yoga mats and some gym equipment as well! Really close to the beach as well which is lovely and the local village. Teas and coffees available, you can use the kitchen if you want and there is free safe drinking water available. Really great value for location and hospitality!

    Nike2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The place is 8kms south off Kovalam, in Adimalathura beach. The beach is way more prettier than Kovalam's. The room is lavish for the 3 of us. We enjoyed every bit of the stay. Maryse was a great host. The beach is 15 floors down. The breakfast spread was equally good. Ideal for friends and couples alike, vacationing or backpacking in Kovalam.

    Shantanu2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We took a trip together after so many years and choosing to stay here was one of the best decisions. We absolutely enjoyed talking to the hosts and all of their stories. They made us feel so comfortable staying there, it was wonderful. We will always remember their hospitality and if we or family decide to go there; we know exactly where to stay now. We came back absolutely happy and satisfied to the brim. Loved everything. Thank you so much. ❤️

The house and the terrace is great, and there are a couple of small and remote beaches in walking distance. There is not much going on nearby (only lots of aryurvedic resorts around) but this was perfect for us and we found all we needed.

    Cool and comfortable 6 duble bedrooms with attached bath rooms located at close to Kovalam beach. Unwind your stress where you will find natures beauty at its best. Wake up to the sound of birds and view of fishermen working on the boats.
    Very quite area, ideal for a break from a busy life.
    The local folks welcome guests and they are helpful.
  • We had a very relaxed and pleasant stay. The upstairs room we stayed in is huge. It's bright and airy with windows on three sides, and has a nice view of the lagoon and the sea beyond. (This is really the best room. Ideal to laze and catch up on your reading.) This isn't your place if you're looking for luxury and comfort in everything. You'll have to walk for at least a kilometre to get to the nearest shops, beach front and restaurants (of which there are plenty of choices once you are there). This is part of its charm though. The caretaker provided breakfast (never repeated in 5 days) for an extra charge. He arranged to fix a few minor irritants and very helpfully provided an electric kettle so that we could make tea/coffee. Unfortunately, he had fractured his arm just a few days before our stay. Therefore, he was a little incapacitated. Otherwise I was told that you can go to the beach across the lagoon with their own boat (which was lying submerged).

    Ajith2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a serene place to stay at. We would love to come back and stay here again. The caretaker was really helpful and did not hesitate to wake up even at odd hours to assist us when we needed. I recommend this place to all kind of travellers.

  • I had a very short stay with Edwin — arrived late at night and left early in the morning, but his accomodation was perfect for me. Thanks a lot for hospitality, for waiting for me late at night (my flight was delayed) and for helping with rikshaw in the morning.

    Aleksandr2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is really great, far above the normal Indian level. We ended up in the middle of a Catholic church festival, which was a bit turbulent. Then there was a celebration in the house and we were right in the middle. So not a bit boring. Edwin is very kind and helpful. He even drove us to the airport at night. More is not possible.

    Rene2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with Edwin and family.

    Steven2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Edwins place is really near to airport, very easy check in, his response is very quick on any of the query you face, we were from mumbai and didnt know malyali, but it didnt hamper anything, edwin guided us very well...he also arranged auto for us and gave local tips, his place is really beautiful and full of basic amenities you need, his place is surrounded by 2 3 churches so you can even visit there, very near to the beach as well...breakfast served was really good...on total we had an excellent stay and dont give a second thought on the place, just book it... Thanks edwin for the lovely stay....

    Zaara2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

  • It was my second stay - I could extend it by 5 days after a first visit of 2. Nice and pretty house, neighborhood full of secrets and surprises, host who responds quickly and well. And in addition, around, it's Trivandrum!

    Charly2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

    Santhosh2019-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Needed a place to stay, for my flight was cancelled and was quite exhausted. A couple places declined me for it was too soon for them, for me to check-in. Manoj responded very quickly and provided me with everything and more than I even needed. He knows the city very well and if you are looking for something specific, he is you man. I was provided with clean water to drink and a nice room to recharge. Rickshaw stand is very close by. It takes like 15-20 minutes by rickshaw to go to the airport from here. Manoj's mother showed me my room, very lovely. It is nice also to hang out on the rooftop and observe local life around you.

    Dirk2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The room is in a nice house in a nice location . You have a little terrasse with plants which it is great at night . The room is basic but clean . I would suggest that you take a tuk tuk the first time but it is not far from the train / bus station . You have everything you need very near by , pharmacie , supermarket , cafe etc. Manoj s mother is always at the place to help and she is very nice . She will help you with anything . She makes the place very special as you feel really welcome . She geniunly care for you . Travelling alone , it is nice to find such place . I didn t meet Manoj but he was there for me via WhatsApp and organised someone to pick me up at the train station . He answered to all my questions very quickly, Well, I would highly recommend the place . If I m back to Trivandrum, I ll definitely go back there .

  • 10/10 would book again. Right from the start the experience was very warm and friendly with Manoj promptly responding to my queries. The house can be a bit difficult to find but with the directions Manoj provides, you shouldn't have any problem finding it. Once there, checking in and getting settled is a breeze. The room was well maintained and clean and the central location made it a breeze to get around the city. Looking forward to being hosted by Manoj again.

    Parag2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and comfortable stay in Trivandum. House is situated in a silent area, very clean and modern. Very tasty homemade Kerala food. Unfortunatly, it is no hot water and a mirrow in my bathrom, it could be great to have it, and no wifi in my room, just in the holl.

    Irina2019-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The communication with the host was clear and helpful. The place is very close toTrivandrum Central Railway station. This was particularly helpful to me because there were two unexpected hartals (motor vehicle and shops strike) during my stay. Although there were plenty of auto-rickshaws running despite the hartal, it was a relief to know that the railway station was within walking distance of less than 10 mins. The location is very safe and secure, with easy access to food places and public transportation. Manoj's mother was very friendly and helpful. Had a nice time altogether.

    Aparna2018-12-14T00:00:00Z

  • I stayed Manoj’s house for a month and was very comfortable stay. Manoj is usually away from this house but he is very helpful and very quick to respond all the time whenever I have question. I stayed with his mom and she cooked very tasty food for me. The location was perfect, very near the train station and easy access to everywhere.

    Upasana2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • One of the loveliest Host we've ever met!  First of all, being the idiots that we are didn't ask the host directly for the location and relied on the"super accurate" google maps which sent us across every nook and corner of the whole Thambooru-Anoor region. We called Maya again and again, to get the location right and they were so helpful and patient. On reaching our stay, I was amazed by the architecture, ambiance and greenery of the house. The house is built to adapt to the changing weather and the ceiling tiles are the recycled and reused ones. How cool is that? Maya and her better half were hands-down THE BEST. Our room was just perfect. During the whole stay, I didn't even feel like I'm in a hotel room or a homestay.  It really felt like one of our very good friend's homes, that we are staying in. They were so considerate and helpful and in planning our tour in Trivandrum. I even tried making appam!! The breakfast was so scrumptious and chaii was heavenly. Definitely gonna go back, in my next visit to Trivandrum. Thanks a lot Maya and to her family(even her cute little granddaughter) for all the warmth, love and hospitality.   Lots of Love
