Reviewed 13 March 2014

Katrina and Esther extremely warm and helpful with all sorts of local information. House is spacious and quiet but not too far to beach, shops, transport, restaurants etc.

Even breakfast at early hour was no problem, everything seemed so easy.

Bed a bit hard but no permanent damage!!!!!

An optional A/c at extra charge might be worth considering as climate quite humid.

We were received very warmly early in the morning, allowed to sleep on a balcony as it was still dark, and we got access to our room as soon as it was cleaned, which happened fast.
The breakfast was delicious, especially the masala omelette.
Katrina and Ester are wonderful, warm women and helped us with all practical matters, like how to find our way around, Indian vegetarian restaurants etc.
We can really recommend Casa Eva Luna.

We warmly recommend this lovely place with its warm atmosphere. The place that is run by Katarina and Esther is filled with lots of peacefulness and helpfulness. If you just want a peaceful stay this is the place. If you want ayurvedic consultation and treatments, they arrange the real thing. If you want a long treatment they cook and serve according to the diet prescribed by the doctor, who is rooted in the old ayurvedic tradition. We stayed here for a week in February 2014 and we only have superlatives to say about Casa Eva Luna. It is so real in every way that all we can say is: “Try, you will never regret”.

Stayed for two nights and overall enjoyed the stay. Rooms were clean and showers good (not warm but you really don't need that in that sort of heat) and painted in nice and bright colors. Beds are a bit on the hard side and we unfortunately ran into some power cuts which meant that the fan wasn't working which made the room quite warm. However, there was an excellent balcony and little garden to hang out at which helped a lot.

The two ladies running the place were nice and friendly and gave good suggestions for restaurants and beaches to visit. Location about a 10 min walk from main beach and restaurants but we didn't mind as we appreciated the quietness around the house.

Would come back to stay again. Good value for money!

Thank you both for a lovely time. Food was delicious, all your help and advise was really appreciated, the house is lovely, clean, peaceful, I adored waking up to the sound of distant trains and goats, cockerels and temples... all that is missing is a swimming pool - but you told us where to find one, and that was wonderful!

Casa Eva Luna was a great place to stay in Varkala. We spent three nights there and from when we first walked through the door the wonderful Katrina and Esther made us feel right at home. Great Breakfast and coffee!!
Its about a ten minute walk to the cliff side restaurants and bars or a rickshaw is easily arranged
Would thoroughly recommend !

We had a lovely three days at Casa Eva Luna. It really felt like home. Katrina and Esther were so welcoming and helpful, giving us tips about how to travel the area as well as a map of Varkala. The breakfasts were lovely, massive bowls of fruit salad, homemade bread and one of the best cheese omelettes I've ever had! There was a really relaxed vibe about the place and we never felt pressured to do anything other than treat the place as our home and relax! I would definitely recommend staying here. Yes, the cliff and beach is a ten minute walk away, but unless you have mobility problems it isn't a problem and is quite a pleasant stroll. We would have stayed longer but unfortunately they were fully booked. Thanks ladies, it was great! Jen And Nick xx
