“Great apartment ”
Reviewed 29 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here for 4 weeks over the Christmas period. The homestay is very comfortable and clean. Joseph and his family are very welcoming and made the stay very enjoyable. The apartment comes with a kitchenette, seating area, table and chairs etc. The bedroom has air conditioning and ceiling fans in the kitchen area. It's about a 10-15 minute walk tot the beach, there is a small shop opposite and cash machines very close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here when we next visit Kerala.

“"Home away from home"”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Vacationed with my family for a week at Little Paradise Homestay. Our host (Mr Joseph) was unassuming and always available for help. Our apartment was well maintained even as we arrived well before check in time . He arranged all our taxi bookings to all getaways near Kovalam and that too with a polite driver at the wheel. Also gave valuable inputs about places to visit and what was to be avoided. Location wise it is about five hundred meters from the beach with auto's available all the time. More importantly it has a serene environment around where you can take a leisurely walk and interact with people.
All in all Mr Joseph is doing a great job maintaining the property and also providing a quality stay to visitors.
Recommended for people who want to get away from the maddening crowds and seek a tranquil place to stay at Kovalam.

“A Little Paradise Indeed !!”
Reviewed 18 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Just a perfect place to stay if you are looking for a home stay option. A nicely built Bunglow with Well maintained , hygienic spacious rooms with AC, TV, Set Top Box, WiFi, Hot Water and a separate dining and Kitchen area with refrigerator, microwave, gas cooking top, hot plate and utensils. The Bunglow has plenty of trees and adds to its charm. The ATM is just next door. Road touch but still peaceful and close to the beaches and places of interest. Easy to carry your luggage unlike most places here due to the elevations and slopes. The place is owned and run by highly educates people with an extremely welcoming nature unlike some hotels in tourist town who can't even understand what you are saying. As a policy they ensure they only entertain clients of good standing so its a good place for families. All in all a good place to be and enjoy the town and it's surrounding and have a good time.

““Rejuvenating stay at little paradise””
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

When I was needed to take two weeks treatment for my neck/knee at Trivandrum as advised by Dr Bhadran I came Little paradise Home stay. During the entire period of treatment I was not only relieved of my physical problem by treatment by DR…...also I would say, found a home close to my heart. Yes both Mr Joseph and his wife M/s Linda took care of me like one of their family member! Apart from the facilities like spacious and comfortable bed room, solar hot water and convenient kitchen for a quick coffee whenever you want one but also the hot tasty nutritious food from Linda’s kitchen which was prepared with lots of love and care and what more with the taste of Kerala.......now I stared to believe that I am in God’s own Home!
Moreover my Dr agreed to visit & treat me in little paradise itself as Joseph agreed to have Doctor’s treatment table in my home. I was greatly relieved by this arrangement as I need not commute to Clinic (some 7 Kms away) every day, thanks for this arrangement.
Over all I would say it’s a wonderful experience staying at Little Paradise with Joseph’s family....A home near your heart!

Little paradise lives up to its name. I was very particular about the cleanliness as we were taking our baby along and I must say it was more than what I expected. Mr. Joseph helped us with everything just as a family. Very comfortable stay!

“An amiable stay at Little Paradise”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My friends and I had a peaceful and enjoyable stay at Little Paradise. As we are very particular about food, cleanliness and comfort we preferred a home stay. After much research we decided on Little Paradise and we are so glad we chose the perfect place. It is very cozy, quiet and laid back. Just 500m from Kovalam beach, we absolutely loved it and would recommend it to people who want well equipped, hygiene rooms and best service. The ground floor room is also made differently abled friendly.

“A wonderful home stay & trip”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Dear all, This trip to Trivandrum was actually planned for my daughter who completed her internship & want to relax in a serene place and energize her self. So I started looking for a place after decided to go Trivandrum. After so much research I selected the little paradise taking in to the fact that my daughter is sensitive to environment & new people. Now as soon as we landed here all my doubts vanished and felt homely at once. She liked the serene & peaceful atmosphere. What happened next 3 days is magic. All our needs and requirements incuding the travel itinerary was executed with precision and care of mother. ....what else to add...like kids immersed in mother love......
