Lovely room at excellent price
Nice room, access to a communal pool, economic price
Good sized room with ensuite, AC and fan. Extremely clean, comfortable bed. Excellent wifi. Location not on beach but in a residential housing estate with a communal pool that you can use for a small fee. A tuk tuk to the beach cost 150 rupees. Breakfast was delicious and served nicely.If you are on a budget this is an excellent place to stay.

Definitely worth going there!
Bertie and Ivy wanted you to enjoy your stay at their cottage. You were given a good breakfast of your choice and able to choose the time that it would be ready for you.
The rooms were good and clean. Bertie and Lily were both very helpful. They made a difference to the holiday.
