As others have said, it's close enough to walk to the main street but fairly quiet because it's surrounded by trees and gardens. House pet Julie the dog is sweet and docile, not a nuisance at all. Clean, quiet, good A/C, decent TV, tasty breakfast plus tea and coffee available often. We were pleasantly surprised by how few mosquitoes there were, given that we were there at the tail end of monsoon. Our room had excellent velcro-ed screens on the windows so we had the windows open at cooler times and A/C when we needed it. One bonus was how knowledgeable and articulate owner Matthew was. We were there for the annual Nehru boat races and he gave us perfect advice about when and how to go and what to expect. Other guests said he helped arrange excellent boat trips - but we had already done ours. He also gave us great advice on where to eat dinner and where to shop. Try Dreamers cafe on the beach. (You'll need to take a 'rick). We had two rooms and yes, one of them had a tiny lizard (eg no thicker than my baby finger) in the bathroom. I guess I'd rather have a lizards than mosquitoes.
