    Malabar Cove River House is situated in a magnificent location overlooking the Drive-in Beach and a shallow river as it flows into the Arabian Sea.

    How to get there
    Airport: Calicut (Kozhikode) 2 h 14 min - via National Highway 17: 105.0 km
    Railway: Kannur in the north / Tellicherry in the south: 12.0 km
    Nearest Airport: Calicut/Kozhikode - an interesting driving of 2 to 3 hours - depending how many times you stop to be amazed by Kerala.

    It can be a good idea to fly into Goa as cheap tickets are often available on the charter flights.
    From Goa there are trains to Kannur. The overnight sleeper train is a good experience with sheets, pillow and blanket supplied on the train. From Kannur, the drive by car to Malabar Cove is approximately 30 minutes.

    From Kannur travelling south and from Tellicherry travelling north on NH17:
    Arrive at Edakkad Town.
    Do not turn into the town.

    Take the beach road on the opposite side of NH17.
    The road goes over a level crossing.

    At the T junction turn right.
    Pass the Perfect English School on the right.
    Keep straight on to t...

We found this place via Tripadvisor and contacted the owner Mr. Suresh. He was quick to confirm our reservation as he had a last minute cancellations.

Location: This river house is located on a bank of a river and sea. It is equal distant (25 feet) from both the river front and a beach. There is a near by beach (about 100 meters), which is accessible from this property, so it is like a private beach for the residents.

The property is located 500 meters away from the main road and you have to walk through coconut plantation and side of a river to reach the house. The caretaker will help you with your luggage.

About the Property:
The house has two bed room (one for kids with a bunker bed) with attached toilets, a dinning cum living area along with a kitchen. The kitchen has a minimum utensils and a stove with gas plus a microwave for cooking. We tried but couldn't able to use the microwave and didn't bother to use it again. All the bed rooms have antique...

I must express reluctance in writing a review of this wonderful place because we would like to keep it for ourselves. Situated in a small fishing village in a grove of coconut palms at the point where the tidal River Darmadan enters the Arabian Sea, this simple cottage is a mere twenty meters from the ocean. there is absolutely nothing to do here, you just "be" in a calm tranquility. Across the Darmadan River is the Muzhapilangad beach, four kilometers of gentle waves, warm water and golden sand. The day begins with the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer and the incomparable Indian morning birdsong. The fishing boats come back from their night's work to unload their catch on te opposite bank of the river - easy to ford to admire the catch of the day. Later in the morning a walk along the Muzhappilangad beach to the cafe which makes different delices every day and of course as the day warms you can bathe in the warm waters of the Arabian Sea as often as you wish.
