  • A super welcome in this very pretty yellow house. Very quiet for this rest, a roof terrace very pleasant to have fun, and have a good time. A friendly moment around a homemade meal. And a lot of little touches that made me feel good. Saravanan took me everywhere with his bike, it was very fun !! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for these few days to spend together.

  • Blue Moon is highly recommended. It's close to the town but in one of the quieter spots. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated and the rooftop lounge area has an ocean view. Best of all, the host is one the most genuinely nice people we've met and made our stay unforgettable. He was there for absolutely everything, was easy to talk to, and even invited us to eat with his family. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. At least we have some great memories.

    Rob2016-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Blue Moon was absolutely spectacular! Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The common room upstairs was a great place to relax, and had an amazing view of the water. The best part of our stay was the home-made food. The complementary breakfasts were outstanding. On top of that, Saravanan offered us a homemade dinner for a very reasonable price. It was the most delicious meal we had in Mahabalipuram! I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Mahabs. Thanks, Saravanan!

  • Blue Moon Guest House is a peaceful, quaint and comfortable boutique accommodation in Mammallapuram. Set a few lanes back from the main tourist drag, it is quiet and lovely. The room was aesthetically beautiful, clean and comfortable. Saravanan the host is equally part of the amazing offering of Blue Moon. I have been traveling in India for 15 years and i have never come across a more gracious, helpful and friendly host. I felt he is incredibly honest and cares for as best a stay as possible. He really went out of his way for my visit. It is near the beach, the tourist road and all the caves and carving areas. All walkable from the space. There is a nice rooftop to relax here.

  • This is an excellent guesthouse in every way - the rooms are pretty, confortable and very clean, the host offers the best hospitality, and the price is good. All in all, we had a seemless experience. Saravanan was an excellent host. When we arrived he gave us a tour of the house, he showed us how everything worked, and he then gave one of our party a lift into town to show them around. He also offered our female friend a local phone so that if she needed anything in the village she could ring him. The level of hospitality is very high, Saravanan's sister is a fantastic cook - you should try the dinner and Indian breakfast. The rooms are well decorated and very clean. There is also a fantastic rooftop terrace where we had breakfast and where you can hang out.

    Rodrigo2017-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Saravanan is an extremely helpful host who will do everything he can to ensure that you have an enjoyable time staying at his guest house in Mahabalipuram. After making the booking he phoned me to make contact and so I had his details should I have had any queries to resolve. He arranged a car to pick me up from my hotel in Chennai and deliver me back to the airport, at a very reasonable cost, which took the hassle out of trying to arrange one myself or trying to navigate the buses which on reflection would not have been easy. He took me on his motorbike to visit the various sites in the village and arranged a local guide so I could try to understand what I was looking at. He even, also, took me to a local vegetarian restaurant frequented by locals (rather than being a tourist trap) in order for me to buy a take out lunch to eat back at the guest house. The rooftop terrace at the guest house is a very pleasant place to while away a few hours reading, napping in the hammock or simply listening to the waves of the sea lapping onto the beach which is no more than 150 metres away. The property is situated on a side street in the Fisherman's Colony - so it is within walking distance of the village and its attractions, but it's also a quiet spot. Saravanan and his nephew rustled up delicious evening meals of freshly caught grilled local fish with rice, vegetables, sambar and the usual accoutrements (for an additional charge). Breakfasts were either Indian or Western style - both were delicious. My room was quite basic but had everything that was needed - and every room also has space to sit outside. All in all I would highly recommend a visit to Saravanan's guest house should you be visiting Mahabalipuram - I can't imagine that there is a better host in the area!

    Jonathan2016-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a little gem. It is walking distance to everything you want to see and do in Mamallapuram. At the same time it is off the main strip on a quiet street. The only noise you hear is crashing waves. Saravanan is a genuine, earnest and warm host who will comfortably go out of his way to help you. Breakfast is supplied. We had the Indian breakfast which was both tasty and plentiful. We had this on the rooftop lounge area, which is a relaxing space. A great way to start the day! My wife and I both enjoyed our stay here and would happily recommend it.

  • Firstly the host is brilliant and willing to help you whenever you need it. The wifi is good and the roof terrace is a nice place to sit and chill. We had a room down stairs which was quite dark and could do a freshen up and a good clean the same can also be said for the bathroom.

  • Temple Tree is a wonderful place to stay. Right next to the beach with a rooftop sitting area, a grill, hammocks, and the greatest people you could imagine. I cannot recommend it enough! Love you guys!!

    Suzanne2017-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • First of all, what you will like about this place is the 'localised feeling'. You can stay like locals in here, and which is great. The hammock area at the rooftop is a place you ought to laze around never leave. The co-visitors are also amazing and had one of the best hippie night-out on this b'day of mine. Bala and Karthik was of definite great help as a host. Thanks for making the day so special! - Roy

  • Simple accommodation 10 meters from the beach. Relatively clean. Friendly host.

    Gary2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • My time here was amazing! I had lovely conversations with Balachandar about Indian culture which is one of my main reasons for visiting this country and traveling about. I also learned a lot about places to visit and things to do and how to get about in south India. I also loved meeting the other kind souls staying here. I can't recommend staying here enough!

    Allison2017-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here! There was a tropical storm while we were here and everyone was out of power but we still had fun! Bala was a great host! He let us borrow his scooter and was knowledgeable about things to do! He also checked in on us during the storm to make sure we were okay!

    Ellen2016-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The property is located right on the beach behind Bob Marley Café. You will need to take a Rickshaw from the drop point on the highway to this place. The rooms are clean, the view is amazing and the staff is great too. You are able to cook for your self if you need, or there is a lady who can help you with that if you get her the groceries. The view from the rooftop is just fabulous. The ocean right in front of you. Definitely recommend a stay here.

    My place is close to art and culture and restaurants and dining. You’ll love my place because of Its a home, My home, filled with travel stories, airy, spacious and loads of laughter. My cafe is right next to the shore temple , UNESCO heritage site and overlooks the point break surf in Mahabs. The beach is 10 metres away. I love people and I love to travel, and therefore i understand your requirements and anxieties of a travel into a new place. Im here to help and serve.
    It's an independent house with two bedrooms a living room two washrooms and a kitchen.
    You live in a UNESCO town and interact with the most fabulous fisherman
  • Place is cozy and comfortable, Liz was very hospitable and her cafe's food is great!

    Anush2016-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Liz's place is extremely enjoyable to stay in. Located just a few meters from the beach and directly in the fisherman's colony, it tucks itself away from where the majority of tourists stay. Simple common living space with kitchen, refrigerator, wifi, private bathroom. The room itself feels like an average sized bedroom. A queen sized bed will be waiting for you when you stay here. It's a little bumpy, but nothing to complain about. No mosquito nets on the windows, which is not a problem, just be careful. Liz herself is easy to contact and talk to. She clearly has deep roots in this town and can help you with anything you need. Highly recommended place to stay.

    Conner 2017-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Best thing about this place is that it is very near to beach. Liz is very cooperative and friendly.

  • Great location, I had no problems.

    Adam2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host. The place is on a nice quiet back street but still only a five minute stroll from all the attractions of Mahabs. Liz is an amazing cook so be sure to check out her restaurant, and she goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and looked after. If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay away from the hustle and bustle busier parts of the south east, look no further.

    Jackson2017-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely enjoyed my stay at Liz's place! The room was perfect and just a couple of steps away from the beach, with a nice break (surf shop right around the corner). There was a little welcoming gift ready and Liz is an amazing host and person in general, you can even go for a surf with her. ;) Everyone else in the village is super welcoming and you get a real communal sense! Looking forward to the next time! :)

    Jan Sebastian2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • The best things about this listing are the host and the location of the place. Right next to the beach, and all the beachfront cafes, this listing is well located. It is also easily accessible as well, with public transit to Chennai and Pondicherry being in walking distance. This room and the attached bathroom are basic (which is exactly what we needed), but comfortable. Liz was also warm and friendly, and her cafe is extremely homely, with excellently prepared meals. I highly recommend her fish curry and the home-made wine. I highly recommend this place, especially if you are not looking for something super-luxurious and want to live amidst the beautiful, rustic setting around the Mahabalipuram beach.

    Kaustuv2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Liz is clearly a natural hostess; she made my boyfriend and I feel totally at home from the second we walked in the door. Her place is in a great location, close to the beach and walking distance from the Bob Marley cafe and other good spots to eat/chill. The room we stayed in got a little hot, so if you're not good at sleeping without a/c that's the only reason I would consider a different spot.

    The house is located in the 5000 year old city of Mahabalipuram. It is very conveniently located and walk able distance to anywhere in Mahabalipuram. The house is a studio apartment and close to essentials like hotels and stores to buy food from. There are also a couple of 5 star hotels in the vicinity. We can organize transport for you at an extra cost if you need. Our property manager and myself are available on the phone at all times. We look to make you stay seamless and convenient.
    This is build along the lines of a western studio apartment. The apartment is a place to sleep and get ready for your travels during the day.
    The house is a walk away from all the great places you need to see in Mahabalipuram. It is really nice because you access these places in a relaxed fashion and see them again and again to get a full feel of a place as opposed to visiting it getting some commentary and leaving. We are talking immersion here.

We are just not for you.
    With beach just 50 feet away from 'KADAL', one need not look for any with other place of tourist attraction!!! However to make your stay more enjoyable we would like to guide with the places nearby..
  • We rented the place out for one night, as a family group of six adults and four children. The facilities were exactly as described, and cleanliness and fit / finish was surprisingly good for a place frequented by large groups. The caretakers were very helpful but not overbearing and knew when exactly to come in and help. Bedding provided was of high standard and clean, and bathrooms were spotless. Best part of it is the location, as it is right on the beach. One drawback is the littering of bottles around the property by the general public that use the beach, and we were nervous to allow the children to walk around by themselves. Overall a great experience and would surely want to return for a longer stay in future!

  • After a bit of search on Airbnb, we chanced upon BHive and it became our choice of stay, hands down! The pictures just appealed to us so much and we thought it would be the best place for the 8 member group that we were. I requested to book and was immediately contacted by Balaji. The entire process of reservation was completed swiftly. Balaji explained everything about the place and accepted my reservation only after he was thoroughly convinced that I had no further queries about the place. Later on, I was contactd by Jayashree who explained about the food options and also mailed us this 10+ pages note on Bhive with all possible details about the place. I simply loved that about them. The D day arrived and off we went. We had a bit of a trouble locating the place but that was soon addressed by Kamalakannan ( the caretaker) who came in a bike to the main road and guided us. We eagerlu kept looking at every building we passed by, wondering which one was our stay. And there she stood! The beauty. It was amazingly picturesque. We were all just enthralled by the place and each one of us took a few min just standing transfixed! It was a perfect lazing out spot. The guys played cricket, volleyball and on the trampoline while we just lazed out in thr hammocks or drank tea sitting on the chairs facing the sea. The room in itself is a well designed structure with a single private room (attached bathroom) and a large hall like room (wherein a single cot and few mattresses were provided). There is a bathroom in the hall as well as outside. A kitchenette helps you in making bread toasts, tea, coffee, etc. There is a RO purifier for drinking watet needs. Kamalakannan and his team are amazing caretakers who just provide you with so much privacy despite staying in the property just near the gates. The food options were limited to few but it was just so well done ( Order needs to be placed well in advance). We couldn't be more happy. There's also a restaurant called Chili 49 nearby from where you an order food. They set up a campfire for us, connected us with a bluetooth speaker, provided us with indoor games and even a cute little tent! It was the best relaxing vacation I could ask for. I still can remember just spending hours gazing into the beach! Each of our friend have already made their own plans to visit the place again and I can't wait to visit this gem of a place once again!I must thank Balaji & Jayashree for putting this place on Airbnb! Much love

  • Excellent deal! Way better than the listing describes it. Had a great experience from reservation to check-out. Soon after the reservation was accepted, I received a booklet that has a good amount of detailed information about the property, the neighborhood, and other services available to the guests. Once we reached there - the cocktail set, essential pantry (loaf of bread, butter, tea, coffee, etc), hammocks, tents, two beds and the extra mattresses all showed really good attention to detail by the host. Moreover the laser lights outside, the photo booth props, the speaker sets, all make for the most ballin' party. All right on the beach with a spectacular view. Highly recommended by all the guests! Will definitely come back again. Thanks Balaji and team!

  • Great experience! Will definitely come back here. At first the place looked all isolated and it was slightly difficult to find. But inside the compound the view and the ambience was really nice. I stayed with my family recently. They had outdoor speakers, party lights, hammocks and it was a very pleasant stay. Beach was right in front of the house, but you still had to go around the compound to get to it. Nevertheless the view, the wind and comfort was worth the stay. Cons: Difficult road to get to the place. Highly recommended.

    Anand2016-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! We were a group of friends and we had a ball here. The sea is in front of you, the villa inside is tastefully furnished, the restaurant Chilis 49 serves delish food and the caretakers are very helpful at the same time unobtrusive too. Phones / net does not work great, which is actually good news, because one can truly unwind here. KADAL is right now the best beachhouse in Chennai! That said, it definitely is not for elders or those particular about their personal space, because this is, put simply, a one bedroom villa, an awesome one at that, but there is only one bedroom as such, so this is a great place for friends who don't mind camping outside in the sweet tents / hammock, when the rooms inside are full! All in all, an excellent weekender villa - and quite affordable too, if you come in large numbers - near Chennai. Highly recommended for the right audience :)

  • Our stay at Bayview was amazing! Avinash is as perfect as a host can get. He offered us a lot of flexibility in scheduling the check-in and did his utmost to make the entire process seamless and trouble-free. And as for the villa, it is a beautiful, spacious setting. If what you want is time away from the raging city, then Bayview will not disappoint. The swimming pool is just across the villa. Very clean, neat and well maintained. We had a great time :) I'd happily recommend this place for anyone who needs a quiet and reflective weekend. PS: There is a black dog named Mani who will be the icing on the cake for all dog lovers ;) visit the place for him!

  • We had a great stay! We stayed with our 2 year old daughter and Ragu made us feel trully at home. Hè helped us out with tips on where to go and eat and even arranged something for us in puducherry. We celebrated New year together on the roof top terras and it was really special. If I had been an unattached Dutch girl I would have fallen in love Thanks!

  • Our stay in Mamallapuram was so lovely, but too short ! The room was clean and spacious and bathroom had hot water. The rooftop is really nice and a great place to meet people. I really recommend staying here !

  • Bala is a lovely young man with a good heart. Our room was comfortable (we have simple tastes) and the hang-out area on the roof made me feel right at home with its old couches and places to stretch out while watching and listening to the Bay of Bengal kiss the beach. We allowed ourselves the decadence of eating out every meal, but the shared kitchen is a fabulous option. Not fancy, nothing gleamed except the water and our eyes.

    Its a two bedroom house. We have two bedrooms with attached bathroom. My cafe Eli's kitchen is two minutes away from the guest house and it overlooks the shore temple. We can serve you all the meals there as per the menu.
    Its a home 10 steps away from the Mahabs beach. Clean and very very basic. Lots of restaurants 5 min away from my place. Can accommodate up to six people including the living room. This house is rented out from someone, and i have to respect the owners and therefore i cannot make too many alterations even if i wanted to. Therefore its very basic, clean toilets and a clean bedroom..
    My cafe, eli's kitchen is 2 minutes walk from my home and it overlooks the shore temple.
  • Liz is very nice and helpful. Clean place

  • Very Nice place to stay! I didn't meet the host but she informed me very Well And was very helpfull. The home is really colourfull And cosy. I had a great time And would recommend iT to everyone!

  • We stayed for 2 nights with 3 kids (2,5,8). The location is great, house looks like pictures, Liz was very nice. Unfortunately we had 6 hours power cut on the first day, which made it difficult with our little kid. You can ask for AC in one room, and for sure it's needed but it's extra charge (around 11€/day).

    Chetan2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately I can't recommend this place, there are cheaper hotels in the town. It was dirty, no towels were provided and sheets in beds had not been cleaned for a while. The pics are a bit misleading as there's more stuff and clutter than on the pictures. We never got to meet Liz, was let in by a neighbour. The location was good however, close to beach and restaurants, and good wifi.

    Katarina2015-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here on New Years Eve. Liz is a very warm and welcoming host. Eli's Pad is really clean and comfortable with all basic facilities. A good backpackers den I would say. Moreover it is very close to the beach. Even if you dont stay here, be sure to check out Eli's Cafe which is run by Liz herself. She is an amazing cook and her love for cooking is evident in the homely taste of the food she serves. :) Ended up coming back to the cafe with friends for a second meal.!!!

    Mathew2016-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The orange room has all the essentials a traveler making a pitstop between Chennai and Pondicherry needs. The ECR express bus drops you off by the highway, after which one needs to take a tuk-tuk to the place, or a local bus drops you off on the main road next to the place. We got a little lost trying to find the place, but Liz was helpful and came down personally to find/take us to the room. The breakfast was nice at a cafè owned by her friend. I'm glad we got to spend Christmas Eve at her beautifully done up restaurant/cafè (highly recommend their house wine if it's available). The view is great and conversations with Liz make you feel at home.
