“The Best Sleep in Varkala!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

La Maison the Varkala is such a great place with the cleanest rooms and freshest linen in all of India. Run by the incredibly lovely two sisters Chinnu and Lovely who would do anything to make you feel comfortable. We had a wonderful time in this great place which is in a perfect location as well, close to the beach and restaurants but far away enough for some goooood quality sleep! We'd always go back there!!!

When we were looking for accommodation and came across La Maison de Varkala, we knew we wanted to stay here right away because it is owned by two business-minded sisters Lovely and Chinnu! Bravo to girl power!

We enjoyed chatting with Lovely and getting to know her and the Varkalan way of life; Chinnu was a bit shy.

Lovely is definitely not your typical Indian female. She's very confident (without sounding arrogant), excellent command of the English language (educated in Dubai, I believe), and very westernized (short hair and polo shirts / above-the-knee shorts - no sari!).

The only thing we wish they offer is keralan food at La Maison especially when we see them having their meals and it sure looked mouth-watering!

Charming clean family run establishment in an excellent location, close to the beach and restaurants. I stayed in a fantastic room with balcony, superb value for money. The girls made me very welcome and hosted a party during my stay. Thank you so much for having me and making my time in Varkala truly awesome.

We stayed here over christmas 2013, and had a superb time. The room was fabulous; the bed comfortable, the room spotless and stylish and the bathroom all good. The hosts, lovely and her sister were terrific, really making us welcome. They were always happy to chat and met our every request, even letting us shower in one of the rooms hours after checking out before taking a night train. We also found that la maison offered a plethora of services, bu, unlike some guesthouses, they were never pushed on to us. The location is also as good as you will find in varkala, about 30 seconds walk to the clifftop stairs to the beach and the run of restaurants. However, it was always nice an quiet at nighttime. We enjoyed a wonderful christmas in kerala, thanks in no small part to la maison. Thank you.
