“Wonderful India Experience”

Alarak Villa and Cottage are ideally situated, only moments from the main road yet in a peaceful and tranquil setting. Both are full equiped with everthing you could possibly need for your stay, they are kept spotlessly clean by the wonderful Vasenda. Your hosts Angie & Den will send their driver Quinny to the airport to pick you up, so no problems there, they make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive, nothing is too much trouble for them, if you need anything they are only to happy to help. Their love of India is evident and before you realise it you will love it too. They are happy to advise re: the best restaurants and shops, and can arrange trips for you. 2013 will be our third time staying with Angie & Den, which speaks for itself.
A truly wonderful place to stay.

“great location well looked after brilliant staff and great weather”
Reviewed 25 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

we were recommended by friends and really enjoyed our stay we were met at the airport
by their driver who continued to look after us through out our stay. Angie & Den made us most welcome and there is a file compiled by them in the Villa listing places of interest to visit and tips on where to eat etc. as it was our first trip to India it was just what we needed and will definately return only 10 minute walk to the beach
