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.

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.
