Nice Experience.. beautiful place
Shah is a wonderful host.. we had a good time during the stay in Kannur. he is very informative and can provide you good advise on places to visit. The home stay is about 5 mins walk away from the Thottada private beach.. very scenic backwaters.. its very calm and nice place for leisure.
2. Wonderful peaceful stay
Felt very remote
It was 500 rupees by cab from the station in October 2018.
Unfortunately the path to the beach was blocked by water so had to go through water up to my thigh to get to beach which was not ideal, as the water was not overly clean. My traveling companion did not want to go in the water house which is understandable so could not get to the beach. The owner offered to drive us to the beach but this defeated the point really. We wanted a place where we could see and hear the sea and in this place we could not.
The food was ok but if you can’t get to the beach there is very little you can do, and it feels very remote. Ideally you need a car to get here.
My companion was also ill so decided to leave early as nothing else to do.
