Wow! What a fabulous place to stay! Spotlessly clean, quiet, great coffee and breakfasts; a fifteen minute walk to the beach, great food nearby. Katrina and Esther know this area very well and are a great source of information about everything a visitor could need. Highly recommended. We will come back here.

Don’t stay anywhere else.
Perfect location close to the beach and the cliff but away from the main road so nice a quiet. The accommodation is basic but exceptionally clean and excellently maintained. Kristina was wonderful nothing was too much trouble and arrange 2 fantastic massages and a brilliant yoga class up on the roof terrace. Breakfast was cheap but amazing! I was lucky enough to be there for Xmas day and enjoy the evening and the great food that was cooked for us! All in all the perfect place to stay if you’re in varkala!

This was my first time in India and I had an amazing time at Casa Eva Luna. Katrina and Esther are extremely helpful and went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. They are very knowledgeable of the area and recommended really good restaurants and helped organising excursions. There is a beautiful yoga shala at Casa Eva Luna that I could use for self practice. Katrina and Esther can also organise for yoga classes and massages on site. On Xmas day they organised a fantastic dinner for all the guests with tasty home made food and good company. Casa Eva Luna felt like home and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I’m definitely planning to go back!

Fantastic experience!
Casa Eva Luna is a charming property located about a 15 min walk from the North Cliff beaches in Varkala. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the property is very well maintained. Sometimes during your travels, you run into properties where the hosts leave behind an extremely warm impression on you. Casa Eva Luna is one amongst them. Katrina and Esther who manage the property, are absolute gems -- very warm/friendly and go well beyond the norm to make sure you are comfortable. Small touches like organizing toys for kids, helping with transport options and advice on what to do locally go a long way in making the stay a memorable one. Highly recommended!
