We felt like on a vacation during our trip....very clean, very comfortable, nicely decorated and calm while prices are reasonable. We had a nice shady balcony, tea kettle and hot water....It actually feels more like visiting friends than staying at a hotel....highly recommended!!!!

We stayed at Mango Villa in November 2014. While the price was at the upper end of our budget, we loved our time there. Vinciane was a great hostess. We were even treated to a piece of chocolate cake in celebration of Thomas' birthday. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was enormous. Varkala was one...

We stayed for two nights in this wonderful homestay. Our room was nice, clean and equipped with everything we needed during our stay. The location of the Mango villa is quite perfect: Close to the cliffs (with restaurants, shops and beach), but enough away to be a quiet place. Vinciane the owner of the homestay and her son Thomas are...

Booked this place over the Internet during the non-tourist season. Fantastic. So private and beautifully presented. During the tourist season Vakala can be busy and Mango Villa is far enough away from the main cliff edge but 3-5 minutes walk away. It is absolutely quiet in the evenings.

Thank you Vinciane and Thomas for a wonderful stay. Our room was tastefully appointed spotlessly clean and the cool shady balcony was a pleasure looking over the beautiful lush garden. Modern clean bathroom with solar hot water, excellent screening on the windows and a quiet efficient fan meant a cool well ventilated room. Set 3 minutes walk along a path...

Mango Villa is in a beautiful quiet location, just back from the cliffs. The grounds are really well kept and we felt the perfect combination of secluded and close to everything. The owner Vinciane is wonderful and welcoming, and did everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer there, and would go back in...

I've stayed in Mango Villa for 4 nights, and enjoyed it very much. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the cliff, and close to some good restaurants/ cafes of Varkala. Remember to take a torch with you In case you return in dark hours ,since part of the path leading to the villa has no light...

This is defintely one of the best places you can stay in Varkala, and there are many of them. The rooms are nice with verandas, it's just around the corner and you are walking through the tibetan market to the cliff. And last but not least, Vinciane - from Belgium - is a lovely host. The beautiful garden is done...

We (my wife and I) stayed at Mango Villa for one night during our 3-day visit to Varkala in December 2014. The place is run by a lovely Belgian lady Vincienne, who has been running this villa / home stay for about 5 years. Vincienne was very warm, made us feel very welcome and gave us some invaluable advice on...
