There is a gentle homestay in South India's Varkala, a sort of eye in the middle of the storm, secluded and colourful, and both reserved and welcoming, bearing the singing name of Casa Eva Luna. The grounds were like an oasis for us refugees from the Great White North. Mornings were like an enchantment, having my coffee brought to me...

Perfect place to stay in Varkala. Esther and Katrina are fabulous hosts and the house is so beautiful it's a great place to hang out between excursions. Easy walk to the beach, shops and amenities etc. Great food too. Comfortable rooms. No mosquitos. Cannot praise highly enough.

I spend a week in January 2017 with my two children and their grandparents at Esther and Kathrin's fantastic homestay. It is a real gem. Peacefully, green and with so many small details taken care of by the hosts. For example, I personally love the fact that you can get filter water (also ice cold!) all the day free of...

First time in Asia, having travelled extensively elsewhere, this was my very first stop. Not sure I could've picked better. Lovely clean double room with en suite at a price affordable for solo travellers. Mixed crowd at the homestay, which here was a villa set in the jungle right between the temple and the beach, perfect for all the amenities....

If, like us, you value daily housekeeping, a spotless room, hot showers, unlimited drinking water, great coffee, cold beer and toilet paper (!!) you won't be disappointed. Casa Eva Luna lives up to the excellent reviews and is a super homestay well managed by a friendly English/Spanish couple. It's in a nice quiet (hard to find!) back street and the...

This was my second stay at CEL, first time solo, this time as a couple. Little has changed. It is spotlessly clean, has friendly and helpful owners, the best breakfast I have had in India, lovely dinners, a peaceful location yet only five or so minutes from the hustle and bustle at North cliff. It attracts a nice clientele, it...

I recently stayed at Katrina's homestay with my mom and partner and we had a marvelous time! Katrina was very welcoming and so helpful sharing lots of knowledge about Varkala for exploration and eating — our two favorites! Their home is spectacular & full of color and any amenity you might need. We had breakfast each morning and highly recommend...

We stayed two nights here after a fortnight on the road. The place was a welcome tranquil oasis. Hosts Katerina and Esther where helpful and welcoming - going out of their way to help all the guests. Rooms are spotlessly clean and the house has a charming eclectic style. The room we stayed in was basic but excellent value. The...

Superfriendly, clean, and welcoming. Just the right distance from the beach. Everything you could possibly need for your stay is included, except Indian food, which is 5 mins away via rickshaw to town.

We loved our stay at Casa Eva Luna! We chose it because of the great price and even greater reviews and were so happy with our 3 nights with Katrina and Esther. The location is a 10 minute walk from the beach, it's peaceful and has a lovely garden to relax in. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean. Lots...
