“the room with a view...”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Right on top of the cliff, away from the maddening crowd, this home stay with an amazing view will definitely make you write poems even if you never wrote one... take a drink..sit in the verandah and I guarantee the most romantic holiday you ever had in privasea....

“Great location and beauty, with some small issues”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The location is unique in Varkala, right on the cliff, secluded with only some local small houses around, with cows and goats.
The garden around is small and nice.
Considering that we are in India, the standard is good enough, In this regard anyway it is a little bit expensive, you pay above all for location.
Wifi with an internet key is really good.

On booking, we asked and was confirmed for the presence of a kitchen, but when we arrived, we renounced since we felt the kitchen that was offered was not ok from a hygienical point of view.
The bathroom is good but it is difficult to get a warm good shower.
The place, as said, is secluded and not always a guardian was there during the night. Nevertheless we never had problems! But consider that, if you like to sleep in a protected environment.
When we arrived the house was not really clean, but when we remarked that, right away the care taker organized a good cleaning “session”.
The caretaker is very present, but not always he accomplishes what you ask: for example, once arrived we asked to put a simple mosquito net on the house door (no mosquito net on the bed), but in two weeks this had never happened, in spite of our reminders

“Best Beach Facing Stay we ever had”
Reviewed 13 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We had a beautiful 5 days in Varkala at Privasea Villa. We initially planned a 2 day stay but later extended to 5 days :-). It had a good time there. Beach is exactly opposite to our villa.
Place is very romantic and cool for couples.

“The Sea has music to those who listen”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Away from the crowd and with the nature, Privasea is one of the serene destination I have visited . Situated close to the cliff, facing sea, the private villa provides all the facilities for those who really wish to plan a vacation away from the crowd and from all worries. The place is well secured with personal security guard and care taker attention, with a cool private beach. You really feel at home on the hospitality provided by the small team managing this. It was a right choice selecting this place.. Value for money and good for long stays as they have all facilities within the property. Highly recommended and surely will plan next trip soon.
