Hi I am Marcin from Poland. We stayed at Little paradise for 3 months and we can strongly recomend this place to everybody. Before we moved in, we have checked around 10 homestays and Little Paradise was doubtlessly the best. Very clean. Very quiet and comfortable.

Wonderful place, I had an awesome stay for 3 days with my 10 member extended family. Would love to come back to this place if I were to stay in Kovalam. Caring host,

Dr. Joseph an exceptional host who did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Mrs Joseph who delighted us with few exceptional lip smacking Kerala home food(Puttu, Fish Curry, Rice, Semiya Idli….) wow…! Thanks for everything. Look forward to comeback during my next vacation. -Deepak


I have been staying a longer period (2,5 months) att Little Paradise home-stay dec 2014 - mid feb-2015. Meanwhile I was working 5 days/week in Trivandrum on Medical College. Bus station is 50 meters from the house. The home-stay is clean, both inside the room and the surrounding area. The owner lives with his wonderful family in the same house, upstairs. It has facilities like AC and TV, Wi-Fi (good speed). Always both warm and cold water. The room I stayed has its own power generator in case of problem with electricity. It is situated halv way from the beach and junction ( where supermarket, restaurants, barbershop etc exist) circa 500 meters in both directions. It's a quiet and safe place which I kindly recommend.


I stayed in the rear ground floor apartment for three comfortable weeks in August-September 2014. The neat, spic-and-span clean, modern, high-ceilinged rooms are secure, well-ventilated, and fully screened, so no mosquitoes inside. The interior is wheelchair accessible throughout, resulting in quite spacious rooms (and no water all over the toilet when you take a shower). Kitchen, WiFi, cable TV, easy access to the Trivandrum buses, the coast, and Trivandrum Junction. Set well back from busy Beach Road in a private location. I couldn't ask for more and am looking forward to Joseph's hospitality again next time.


Our extended family (5 adults & 2 Children) had a very comfortable and memorable stay at "Little Paradise" from 11th to 14th September. Little paradise is conveniently located on the Beach Road, 600 m from Kovalam Jn and about 700 to the nearest beach. There are 3 fully furnished Studio apartments (Living Room with kitchenette, Bed Room, Toilet and a small balcony. Dish TV, Air-con, Fridge, Induction Cooker, WiFi etc are provided). Materials used for construction, plumbing and furnishings are of the highest quality. Mosquito/insect proofing is very effective with meshing on all doors and windows. All facilities provided are in good working condition. Fresh air and good cross ventilation is available in all apartments. Hot water is available round the clock through the Solar heater. Apartments are well maintained at the highest standards of hygiene and free of dust. And finally a big thanks to our extremely good and helpful hosts Dr. Joseph Antony and his nice family.

Had a wonderful stay, just perfect, could not have asked for more hospitable landlord and family who were always there to help. Very generous this family!!! The rate was very good and quite competitive with anything else. New place hence all is very clean and kept scrupulously clean. Large rooms, fridge and cooker, TV, large bathroom and shower, deeply comfortable bed, air con bus to Trivandrum almost at the doorstep for 30 rupees and all the local buses you could want, and a government of Kerala vegetable stand very close. And nice restaurant in new hotel just 8 minutes walk to the junction, Le Promenade. Very private place with privacy guaranteed. And house owner Dr. Joseph can make available to you a look inside the reality of Kerala, and show people helping themselves, and children in nourishment afterschool programs, a real India view, truly remarkable India!!!!! I came away with much more than expected after my stay of one month and am most grateful.


We stayed for about a month in little paradise and felt completely at home. The rooms are very clean, western standard (this way, you are not going to find anywhere else in Kovalam), the bed is very comfortable as well. Mosquito proof and a quiet sourrounding. Beautiful garden and roof-terrace (enjoy sunrise while doing Yoga). Mr. Joseph and his family were very helpful with all kinds of questions or problems...always having an open ear, a good advice or the right information. Missing the place already...we will come back Smile


Little Paradise, the matching of the name could not be better! A great, clean place to stay with an atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. I just remember my morning-yoga on the roof... Short walking distances to the beach, restaurants and shops as well as to the busstation. Joseph and his familiy do their best for an unforgetable stay in their Little Paradise! Thanks a lot!


What a wonderful place: little paradise in Kovalam. All the comfort you need and, you'll get Joseph for free. A real gentleman, who does anything to make you feel at home. An oasis an walking distance from the beach, the shops and the restaurants. And Trivandrum as big city easy to reach by public transport. If you'll ever plan to visit Kavalam, don't think twice about your accommodation!

Have stayed at Little Paradise for 3 months. We could not have found a better place to feel "at home" at in Kovalam, I'm sure of that. Clean, the neccesary facilities available and a really helpful landlord in Joseph. Ask anything from where to take the bus to what movies that can be seen in the theaters and he will answer or find the answer for you:-)! The flat feels safe and is free from mosquitos! WIFI, power and cleaning service will not be included in the rent. Thanks!


little paradise,possibly the best home stay in kovalam with best people around.we stayed there for more than a week and enjoyed a lot,with all the facilities available. if you ever plan a visit this is the best place to choose "little paradise". Thankx to Mr.joseph and his family for being so helpfull to us.
