Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi four of us stayed at beechwood house from 23nov 2012 for 7days and it was a fantastic place to stay.The location is very good as it is 5minutes walk from the beach,shops, and restaurants, but you are in the heart of the village.where the people are very friendly. the house it self is very good as it has everything you could need for your stay,good size indoor + outdoor space, the manager of the house is also very helpful if you need to know anything or want anything,like book a trip or find your way around he is only too happy to help. we stayed the previous week down the coast at mulloor near kovalam we gave that 7/10 but beechwood house on reflection is 11/10 and yes it is that good. thanks p.morgan derby England.

Joshy’s Beachwood house är verkligen en modernt hus med bra utrustning för oss svenskar. Med badrum till varje sovrum kan både två par som en familj lämpligen hyra det och du får mycket mer bostad för pengarna än ett hotell och valfriheten att laga egen mat eller att ä

excellent value, lovely people

  • 5 of 5

End of a lovely two weeks. This is our 3rd visit to Kerala, the previous 2 spent in hotels, this time we decided to rent a villa instead, so glad we choose Beachwood.

Joshy and his lovely family could not have done any more to make our stay memorable .

The villa was clean and spotless fresh towels and sheets were supplied every week, There was a lovely porch to sit out on and watch India go by.

The family, one evening made us a meal of mussels fresh fish and a host of local vegetables, delicious.

We were even invited on the way back from a trip to Periyer to stop and have breakfast with Joshy extended family with a tour of the family Spice Plantation it was delightful.

Also thanks must go to Mohan who was our driver and go to guy his help was invaluable.

great holiday in kovalam

  • 5 of 5

my wife and i had a great 12 days in Joshy's house, we had stayed in a hotel on lighthouse beach for the previous 5 days and the differance was amazing. The house is big, clean and away from the maddenning hawkers and street sellers, a place where you can see a little bit of how the locals live, yet its only a short tuk tuk back to lighthouse beach. The restaurants near samudra beach are great, the beach itself is a bit rough but if you walk over towards the leela it is quiet safe plus you get the bonus of seeing colours of the locals and indian tourists with there amazing beach habits.

i would recommend beechwood house and if i were returning to kovalam i would book again

Fantastic customer care

  • 4 of 5

From my initial enquiry and throughout our stay and return from our holiday Mr George was in regular contact ensuring everything was satisfactory and that we where enjoying our stay at his property. The house manager was brilliant. We had a cancelled flight (24 hrs.) consequently missed connection, so two flights later arrived at Trivandrum, only to discover that our luggage wasn't there, and ground staff unhelpful and vague. Amazingly the house manager got our luggage to us within 6 hours of arriving, and throughout our stay he organised two trips for us promptly and well done.

The property is a 10 minute walk from Samudra beach, which is quiet with some good restaurants. In the opposite direction a 40 minute walk will take you to Lighthouse Beach with is full of wonderful restaurants and much busier but lovely also. On our return journey we would get a tuk-tuk for £1!

The property is well furnished, two large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, which was very convenient. Air conditioning which we didn't use, but we did use the overhead fans.

Spacious kitchen, which I didn't cook in as we are out all the time, but all amenities there should you choose to.

As a family with two teenage children we all loved this location and would recommend to all. We went to the backwaters (Alleppey) staying on a house boat for 24 hours, this was pricey but well worth it. We also visited a nearby elephant rehabilitation centre, where you can have a short ride on an elephant.

The only draw back was the occasional Huntsman spider which did spook me and my daughter, but thankfully these appeared at the end of our stay!

Mr George, the house manager and our driver where very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

We had our best family holiday yet.

beechwood house

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home after a lovely stay at Beechwood house Kovalam set in a prime location close to all restaurants and the beech. The house is spacious and clean, and the house manager Jojan is always there to attend any needs at just a call away. he arranged for us to have a day trip on a house boat and arranged the train tickets for the next days return. There is also a taxi driver who is just a few doors away who takes you where you want to go , the local rickshaw drivers are friendly, as are all the local shop keepers .Highly recommemded and we are definitely going back next year.
