              You'd be INSANE to stay anywhere else in Varkala!”

              Magnificent owners, delicious food, gorgeous surroundings

              Casa Eva Luna is by far the best place I have ever stayed anywhere in India. The property is immaculate with beautiful black marble floors throughout and a terrace on the first floor of the property overlooking the luscious garden and surroundings, which I loved sitting out on in the mornings and evenings. The greatest thing about the place is the hosts who couldn't possibly do more to make the place feel so special and homely. On the evening I arrived, while I was checking in, Katrina secretly noticed from my passport that it was my birthday the next day, and when I got up the next morning, Katrina and Esther brought me a homemade birthday cake with a candle in along with my coffee!!! I couldn't have wished for a more perfect start to my 30th birthday, and I cannot thank them enough for their kindness. The menu specialises in Mediterranean dishes, which is perfect if you want a break from Indian fare, and, what is more, the food is to die for! Everything I ate at Casa Eva Luna was impossibly delicious, and the portion sizes were extremely generous. They even bake their own fabulous bread! The property is located down a lane off the main road, in a peaceful and relaxing setting. It's a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach. If you let the fact it is not on the beach/cliff put you off, you are making a BIG mistake, as you can easily enjoy all that the beach/cliff has to offer, as well as experiencing a true gem of a guesthouse. Katrina gave me a map of the local area when I arrived along with an explanation of all the main points of interest so it's simple to get around. The wifi in my room was the strongest of anywhere I have ever stayed, meaning Skype conversations in my room back to the UK were flawless. If I ever return to Kerala, I will come back to Varkala just to stay at Casa Luna Eva again! It was a real highlight of my trip, and I was disappointed that my packed itinerary wouldn't allow me to stay longer.

              More than justifies its high ratings”

              Cleanliness; owners attentiveness; peaceful

              We booked mainly because we were attracted by the high rating this establishment had attained and because of the written comments which supported those ratings. We were not disappointed. Indeed, I would emphasise that Casa Eva Luna surpassed our expectations. It does not claim to be 5 star, but a 5 star establishment would find it very difficult to compete on personal service. Our two hosts and their young staff were helpful without being intrusive, friendly without being pushy, and provided very good breakfasts and evening meals with choices to match. We love Indian food so were not looking for alternatives but the menu provided for breakfast and evening provided a very pleasant counterpoint to spicy Indian food. Rooms were kept clean, linen changed every third day and the variety of sitting areas was charming. Its a walk of about 15 minutes to the restaurants and beach but we felt this provided a good reason for some exercise and we were away from the melange at the top of the cliff and Casa Eva Luna was a quiet retreat.

              Casa Eva Luna will make you feel at home”

              The home stay hotel offers very clean room, great food and warm care for a very good price.

              The house is very nice and clean with a pretty garden. A second house is being build for next season that promises ever more. The location is a 10-15 minute walk from the beach and cliff, where the action happens. I didn't mind the walking. At night you can take a ricksha. Katrina and Esther were very attentive and helped in any way I needed, be it to organize a transfer from the airport to supplying me with fresh aloe vera from their garden after I got sunburned. Esther is a wonderful cook and a lovely person. And they sure made me feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend the Eva Casa Luna Salad, home-made fries and mayonnaise, the fruit and muesli for breakfast and the chocolate crepe! The house also offers very good Ayurvedic treatments. They are a bit pricier than some other offers in Varkala, but they are very professional and effective. And most are in-house which adds a lot of comfort to it. The only downside were the beds. The mattresses are really hard. That is quite usual in India, but it took away some of the good the massages did. Also, if you are sensitive to noise you might reconsider Kerala in the Temple Season (March). The three surrounding temples were competing over megaphones every night. That's not the hotel's fault though. You'll find that in many places that time of year. Same with wild dogs. Bring ear plugs ;) .

              Located in a peaceful residential area surrounded with coconut trees. Nice balcony and feel like home atmosphere.

              I stayed in Casa Eva Luna for a day but didn't get a chance to taste their authentic Spanish foods like tapas but would like to visit Varkala once again in the near future to enjoy the beach after the monsoon and enjoy my stay in Casa Eva Luna.

              Absolutely amazing find ”

              I stayed here after having a terrible time at another Ayurvedic resort 2 hours away and luckily came across Casa Luna by chance on google. From the moment of booking the staff could not have been nicer. The two ladies who run this place are absolutely amazing and you are instantly part of the family. Katrina organised me a taxi with an hours notice to collect me and take me to Casa Eva. On arrival I was able to book daily meditation and yoga classes which turned out to be private so amazing value for money. Due to a severe allergic reaction at a previous resort I was not able to partake in any of the Ayurvedic treatments but I did see the doctor who was amazing and had the absolutely delicious home cooked fresh Ayurvedic food especially for my diet. The cook is fabulous and I hope I can try and recreate some of her recipes at home. As for the room it was large, clean and perfect, decorated lovely, Great shower. Perfect will be back next year. Thanks ladies, miss you already

              Great place, Katrina & Esther are very helpful.”

              3 best things: the owners are very nice and helpful; Esther's food is delicious; it's close enough to the beach but calmer than the places on the cliff.

              Had a great stay at Casa Eva Luna in March 2013, highly recommended. Katrina helped me out when Tiger Airlines misplaced my luggage for six days, and Esther makes great meals, both Spanish and Indian. The room was very comfortable and the garden is a quiet place to eat or read. It's about a 10-minute walk to the cliff and beach, nice to get away from the crowds and shops. I also stayed at a hotel on the cliff, Casa Eva Luna was much more welcoming and a better value.

              5 stars all round!”

              I had the most delightful stay of a week at this very friendly, spotlessly clean guest-house! Two lovely women run this place perfectly; nothing is too much trouble. Their genuine love for their community is obvious. They support local businesses and families, even the local homeless dogs find a good meal and love in this place! I stayed in a double room in the main house. This isn't a 5 star establishment but everything is so very clean... even the bed sheets smell nice and fresh! It's a short walk, less than 10 minutes from the cliff, and local shops selling water and snacks are a stones throw away. Katrina and Esther can introduce you to a couple of auto drivers they use, so if the walk is too much it is really easy (and cheap) to arrange a lift. The food prepared at Casa Eva Luna is good too - just loved the fruit salad! And the coffee is good as any you'll find in Kerala. There is nothing about this warm and welcoming place I didn't like. Thanks again Katrina, Esther and your lovely staff too!

              I was welcomed into the Casa Eva Luna Home Stay by the kind and helpful owners. My room was spacious, clean and quiet. They helped me with maps and restaurant recommendations. I was invited to go to the temple with one of the owners who couldn't have been kinder. It was a lovely stay. It isn't on the beach, but it's about a 10 minute walk there.

              A home away from home!”

              From the moment I arrived to the moment I left, Katrina and Esther couldn't have done more to make my stay extra special. They are attentive to every little need before you've even had the chance to ask. The little extras such as helping you with travel arrangements, calling rickshaws, making homemade remedies are not too much and they genuinely enjoy looking after their guests. Their home is lovely with communal areas as well as private space. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean and nicely decorated. They are located in a serene location just a few minutes walk away from the touristy spots; away from the noise of motorbikes and building work! I would definitely recommend Casa a Eva Luna to anyone who would like a peaceful, safe, clean homestay with two lovely ladies who make excellent recommendations on where to go and what to do and who really can't do enough!

              The friendliness of the proprietors, the great room, the awesome food

              I loved my stay at Casa Eva Luna. Katrina and Esther went overboard to ensure everything was great, even making me a gluten free cake for my birthday. They are friendly and have a lot of information about what to do around the area. The rooms and location are great. It's not by the cliff, but it's close by (easily walkable), which makes it really good if you want some quiet at night. Breakfast and dinner can be eaten there, cooked by Esther, and everything I tried from the menu was delicious. Highly recommended, couldn't have asked for a better way to start my Kerala holiday.

              A great Experience”

              The warmth of the owners. The location. The service.

              My stay at Casa Eva Luna was wonderful. As a solo female traveller I felt I'd been offered a home, away from home. The Woman that run it are kind, knowledgeable and extremely approachable. They helped me in so many way's and always in such a genuine and friendly manner. I would highly recommend a stay here.

              The owners, the rooms, the environment

              I had a fantastic stay at Casa Eva Luna! Katrina and Esther were the most genuine, helpful and friendly hosts I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The house is spotlessly clean, the rooms were large and comfortable and the garden and veranda a peaceful oasis away from the crowded cliffs. I can highly recommend the in-house massages too, the best I ever had!

              The setting is wonderful in a very tranquil part of Varkala. The house is kept beautifully clean. The hosts, Esther and Katrina cannot do enough to make your stay as good as it can be.

              The success of Casa Eva Luna is all down to Esther and Katrina. Their attention to detail and being prepared to help you with any needs. Also they have excellent links to a first rate Ayurvedic doctor for massages and medical needs. The place is an absolute gem!

              I enjoyed every minute in this place!”

              The hosts Ester and Katrina are ever so friendly, Kat is very helpful giving you tips, recommendations, organising activities, rickshaws etc and Ester is super fun to be around. After 5 minutes it already felt like we were long-time friends. They give you privacy so you can be on your own if you want or sit there with them for a nice chat. The vibe is cool and the atmosphere very relaxed. The rooms are very clean, and they even freshen them up every day. It's a nice touch and not something that I was expecting on this budget. There's a bit of noise during the night and early hours of the morning (birds, wind, etc) but I think that's common everywhere in India.Bring earplugs (I didn't :P) Breakfasts are great, they got a wide selection of options. They don't serve lunch nor dinner but the cliffs (where all the restaurants are) are a 10 min walk. They have a massage, a yoga and a meditation room. Long story short: this is the place to stay if you're in Varkala.

              A warm welcome and an even warmer stay”

              Caring staff, good service/help and quiet surroundings

              As we had the misfortune of being sick with the flu on our first morning this place was the best place to be until we felt better. The two owners Katrina and Ester were so hwlpful and csring the whole time we were down and low with fever. They even took us to see the doctor in Varkala which we appreciate very much even though we found a better hospital in Trivandrum called KIMS. During our stay we enjoyed to sit on the balcony during early morning and have our breakfast which was really tasty, especially home made bread with jam and the fruit sallad. We would like to extend our warmest thanks to you both and can highly recommend CEL to anyone looking for a lush hang-out with great food and warm staff. Hugs from Jens & Teresa

              Excellent home stay with a European feel. Lovely clean room, hot water and good food. Wonderful hosts who are always ready with help and advice to help you get the best from the area. Set a few minutes walk from the beach and restaurants in a quiet residential area it was an oasis of calm in the bustle of a tour of South India. We would have loved to have stayed longer.

              Relaxing, close to cliff tops and wonderful, very informative owners!

              We had a lovely time staying at Katrina and Esther's Homestay! The rooms were very comfortable and decorated in wonderfully bright colours. We were about 10min walk from the beach and clifftop restaurants and would be a great place to stay for anyone looking to be able to escape from the tourist hustle. Katrina and Esther were lovely hosts, being a wealth of knowledge about how to get around Kerela and other places of interest. Esther's cooking is also amazing! We spent most of our mornings having a lazy breakfast on their balcony and reading. Would highly recommend this homestay!!!

              The homestay,staff and facilities were excellent. Staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable, they were very knowledgable and helpful. I would recommend the massages. The house was spotlessly clean and comfortable. It was about a ten minute walk to a lovely beach with plenty of restaurants. Thank you for a lovely stay and for the use of beach towels etc.
