Well located with friendly assistance

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Blue Breeze for many years, often during Christmas and New Year? The house is clean and well appointed with television, wifi and DVD player. There is an interesting range of books which we read and added to. The house has a water filter, powerful air conditioning, and fans.

As always in India there is dust and insects are plentiful so we always brushed the floors every morning. A full cleaning service was available from the caretaker whenever we requested it.

The caretaker Uday lives almost opposite the house and he is extremely friendly, speaks very good English, and is both helpful and efficient. We have become friends with Uday and his wife Lekha over the years, and we look forward to meeting them each winter.

The house is well located in a small village. It is fifteen minutes walk from Lighthouse Beach with a wide range of shops and restaurants. In the other direction it is an uphill walk or a short rickshaw ride to Divine Supermarket where you can get food, drink and more.

The owner Anib has always been extremely helpful and has visited the house each year to welcome us.

The only disadvantage to the house is the Kovalam Multigym opposite. This plays music every morning and evening while local young men tone their muscles. However the gym was very accommodating when we suggested that the volume might be lowered, especially during the morning Sessions. They did indeed halve the volume for which we were grateful.

The house is ideal for a family who want to relax in a genuine village environment with the beach just a short walk away, and friendly help a few doors away. The house is also safe with a gated area and inside there is a locker for money, passports, cameras etc.

The garden is nice with a lot of fruit trees and blooming flowers to look. Uday, the caretaker is also very helpful to give advice of the different fruits and how to cook them. The kictchen is fully functioning with a gas cooker, frindge and a deep freezer and a lot of kitchen equipment. The house has also a power back up system, since power cuts are common in India. So this house is fully functining even during the cuts.

We can definately recommend this house from years of experience. We are also experienced travellers and have a lot of competence to tell this is a good house. If anything needed fixing or helping with it was easily done with friendly and jolly experience.

A happy house

  • 4 of 5

This house has all you need for a comfortable holiday. The owner is a kind and generous host, helpful in every way. The caretaker lives adjacent and provides local information and assistance as needed.He can arrange taxis, auto rickshaws, boat trips, extended tours, and airport pickups.

The house is a 15 minute stroll to the beach, or 5 minutes by auto rickshaw if you prefer.

We can recommend this house having spent 5 weeks there, and having my wife's daughter and grandaughter join us for 2weeks.
