Well kept, clean with modern amenities. Delicious home cooked meals, a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. What more could a person ask for? Complete getaway if this is what you are looking for. The owners are welcoming and helpful if you need to arrange any outings or need information about the area.

Had a really relaxing stay here towards the end of our time in India. We had a room on the upper balcony which was spacious and clean. Great views out to sea. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They arranged for us to watch a Theyyam ritual - an unforgettable experience. I also left some things at the homestay...

I spent two weeks travelling around Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the Blue Mermaid was by far the best place we stayed. Other than the spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms, there are three main reasons for...

We stayed at Blue Mermaid for a few nights, we slept in the cottage which had clean sheets and hot water. The cottage has a very pleasant space to read outdoors in the cool shade. The food was good and varied and the activities we did (theyyam/fort Angelo) with the autorickshaw driver they work with were worth it, especially the...

I stayed here with a friend for the second time in January (and the third time on Thotada beach) -- the first time was a year earlier with friends and family. It was like coming home to family. Indu and Pradeep provide a homely environment, comfortable, quiet and welcoming. And they look after you as if you're their family too....

Stayed here at the end of December 2015. The best Christmas I have ever had. Beautiful scenery, beautiful grounds, and beautiful people! The hospitality was amazing and if all of us human beings are connected in some way to one another and our earth, I definately felt in in this place. Great food and comfortable rooms. Thank you so much.
