Casa Luna was recommended to me by a dutch couple we met in Delhi. So phoned from Delhi to book.
Arrived at Casa Eva Luna and was met by Katrina the proprietor. Found a very friendly relaxed enviroment. Casa Eva Luna has 3 rentable rooms all with ensuite bathrooms. The property is situated about 200 metres from the road in the middle of a coconut grove. Large plot with gardens to the front and a lovely terrace. Also a very nice front porch. At the back of the property there is also a small terrace.
My room consisted of two single beds, plenty of shelving small dressing table all in co-ordinated colours. Ceiling fan and two lights.
The ensuite had western toiilet as well as asian and hand basin. Although there was no hot water I found that the water was fine to shower in the afternoon/evening although a little cool for a shower first thing in the morning.
On numerous occasions I asked for an evening meal and this was prepared by Gulam a chef from Kashmir. I have to say it was the best food I had whilst I was in India and I had stayed at 5* accommodation throughout India.
Katrina organised a boat trip for my friend and I in the backwaters of Varkala although it was only a 2 hours excursion it gave us a real taster. It was fantastic.
I would highly recommend this guest house for the money it is fantastic.
