First, we planned to stay only 2 or 3 days in varkala but we felt so much like at home than we finally stayed one week.... It was so difficult to leave this homestay!!
Our room was very clean (probably the best we had in india!) and has a really nice touch with its pink mosquito net, we felt like princess! :)
We had our own patio and personal door. 
And It is only a few minutes walking from the beach and restaurants.
Bindu, the owner and her 2 lovely girls were always smily, helpful, and full of good tips! 
She arranged for us an authentic boat trip in kollam backwaters with a nice boat driver. Don't miss it!
There would be a lot to say, we miss this peacefull homestay!
We highly recommend it if you plan to stay in varkala for a few days... Or more! ;)

Ideal "Cliff" accommodations. Excellent value. Very clean. Tastefully decorated.

I could go on and on about how much I loved our time in Varkala and especially our stay at the Red Palm Homestay. It is worth noting that your experience here will not be a typical homestay. The accommodations include the privacy of a hotel, with a private entrance and bath. The family that runs Red Palm is precious, and they are happy to help you out, treat you to home cooked chai and food, and chat you up. You won't be able to visit without sharing a laugh with the two delightful young girls in the family. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We stayed in the room on the ground floor lookers-left. Loved it.

Great place to stay with a lovely and welcoming family. The rooms were a good size and clean. Bindi will make meals on request for a minimal charge. Her 2 daughters are delightful and kept us entertained. It has a lovely laid back feel and gives oppertunity to meet other travellers. It is ideally situated and we Would definately recommend.

Room Tip: we managed quite well without a/c in our ground floor room
