I stayed with Liz for 5 Days in December. Safe to say it was one of my best solo trips :) She cooks amazing food and I would highly recommend going to her cafe with an empty stomach! The room was huge and had a small kitchenette it was really very comfortable.
I booked the property after reading great reviews on TripAdvisor. The 5 of us (3 adults and 2 kids) drove down from Bangalore. It was a bit tricky finding the place, but boy, what a place this is. Right in the midst of squalor and filth, this place certainly is not for families. Ideal maybe for backpackers, but I wonder even how they might cope up with the smelly conditions, unkempt place and a disaster of a bathroom (brown stains in the commode were not for decoration). The host, Liz is very personable and runs a restaurant close by. She only has hospitality at heart, but needs to recognize that hygiene is important for a few folks. We had booked for 3 nights, but barely could stay for one. We fled the next day.
Dear Sachit, Im so sorry to read about your review. Yes the town is smelly and dirty, its a fishing village, that must speak for itself. Inspite of all this, it is the third most visited destination in India on world tourism map. People who come here know that this place is like this. But also there is a rich heritage and culture and history which unfortunately some of us dont understand and appreciate. I live on a coast. Probably people living in the inland does not understand the issues while living on a coast. Our water is heavily loaded with salt and it causes stains on every thing possible including our clothes. The stains are from the salt in the water and its not because its not cleaned. I use acid to clean my toilets so that its disinsectified every day. This is the best i can do given the conditions here. And its not a five star hotel for sure. But like you said yes the town is for backpackers and not for people who are used to five star standards. May be next time, you will find a better holiday destination
Die Unterkunft ist super gelegen, - einfach aber mitten unter den Einheimischen. Wir (zwei Frauen) hatten stets ein sicheres Gefühl. Die Nachbarn nehmen einen wahr und sind freundlich. Die Ausstattung des Zimmer ist einfach aber ausreichend. Auf den Regalen liegt Zeug, das eigentlich nicht dahin gehört. Die Bettwäsche aus Synthetic war bei 40* Celsius nicht sehr angenehm. Dusche und WC waren nicht besonders sauber. Liz, die Vermieterin ist gastfreundlich und geschäftstüchtig.
