Ken and his wife and daughter made us feel welcome in their home. Ken showed us around the neighbourhood and had some tips for us, which we were grateful for, and we enjoyed chatting with all the family.
We weren't around that much as we were meeting with friends in the neighbourhood, but Ken has suggestions of where you can eat out which are close by.
The room is comfortable and the en suite was appreciated. It's a good idea to keep the bathroom door shut all the time as the biters can find their way in through the window in there.
This was the first time I'm using AirBnB and I booked Ken's place since it had good reviews.
I must say, Ken (and his family) really lived up to all those good reviews. They were excellent hosts and helped us out where needed.
I was on a bike and so didn't need much help with travelling around, but Ken suggested all the good places to visit and eatouts to try.
Also, the trust that his family placed on me (a complete stranger) was really great. They left the entire home (except just one room) open to my use without questions.
Also, the best part is, the house is almost on the beach. A very calm and quiet beach away from all the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city.
I would definitely recommend staying with Ken in this place.
SUPER friendly host who offered us help whenever we need help calling for cab or taxi! Arranged taxi for us for city tour and to the airport!
Ken is the ideal air bnb host! We loved our stay at Kens home. When we arrived he introduced us to the neighbourhood and made us feel at home.
He showed us around the area in his car and to the supermarket to pick up some things to keep in his fridge. He also arranged a taxi tour around Chennai which we really recommend and helped us get Chennai Superkings tickets.
We 100% recommend staying here.
Ken and Maddy are great hosts and went out of their way to help us get around Chennai and organize our onward travel.
The room is quite basic but the bed is comfortable and Ken allowed us to use the rest of the apartment.
The location is rather far from anything and the nearby beach is not what beach lovers are looking for. Getting around required more effort than we'd have liked but Ken was always able to help.
Ken was a wonderful and very helpful host. He went way beyond our expectations. The accommodation is basic, clean and comfortable. Thank god for AC as we were in Chennai at the beginning of summer. Ken has lonely planet guides and the food eatery he suggested to eat at were some of the best we have had in India.
Ken and his family were very nice. We arrived 2 hours earlier than expected and they were very accommodating and gracious, allowing us to check in early. Ken even gave us a mini tour of the area shortly after our arrival. We were in Chennai during hot season so the air conditioner was a pleasant addition to the room. We had our own bathroom which was convenient.
The apartment is very close to the beach (basically out the door) with a beautiful view from the rooftop. We did yoga up there in the early morning and it was amazing! If you're looking for simple, beach side accommodations, this is the place for you. The apartment is a bit far from downtown (45 min bus ride) and public transport options (15 min. walk). However, there are rickshaws available down the street. Ken graciously called metered rickshaws for us when we requested. Overall, a fine experience.
