Costa Malabari Home Stay is located about 6KM away from the Kannur town and you can reach Kannur either by Bus or Train. The nearest Airport is Calicut which is about 120KM or a 4hours drive to Kannur. The home stay is located on the cliff of Adikadalayi Beach. The beach is surrounded by large stones, hence access to the... More

A simple yet comfortable home stay with very friendly and accommodating staff. Metal steps at the end of the garden lead to a lovely small sandy beach. The local Theyam wss a real experience. A peaceful and relaxing stay.

We stayed at Costa Malabari 2.Mr Kurian was so knowledgeable about Theyyam and the whole area, The room was lovely and the food was the best we had in Kerala. Stayed 4 nights could have stayed a lot longer. The beach below and the ones nearby were beautiful, the lanes around were quiet with lots of wildlife.

Costa Malabari is a typical homestay. A little to the interiors but can be accessed with the help of GPS. the moment you enter you'll be greeted by the sight of the sea just in front of the location. Clean rooms, bathrooms and sheets greet you. Expect no luxury! Its not a resort, its a homestay. The property is on... More

A traditionally built house that acts as a homestay with 4 rooms, this place has it all: calm surroundings, lush green scenery, an amazing "private" beach right under the cliff on which the homestay is situated. The beach is especially spectacular in the monsoon season, as the sea batters into the cliff and the roaring of the waves makes for... More

Costa Malabari 2 is one of the few disappointments of any accommodation in six trips to India. Whatever I envisioned, I should have lowered my expectations, other than for a beautiful view of a difficult-to-access beach. The grounds are lovely in an overgrown, tropical way. The ocean view, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore at night... More

We stayed at Costa Malabari 2 for 2 nights - great position on cliff top above secluded beach. Rooms were very clean and cool. The garden was lovely with hammocks for relaxing in the sea breeze.
