Randa, your host

Hi there, Randa here, I am your host at Ocean View Homestay. I am moving from Montana and semi-permanently settling in Kerala. The homestay will offer yoga retreats and supported stays. Our first offering will be a yoga retreat of two weeks.

As most of you will be traveling from a long way off, a two-week retreat gives time to settle into the wonderful subtropical world of Kerala. Our program will be early morning yoga practice, afternoon sessions where will explore the practice in a broader form.

We are a short ride from the airport, we will arrange a pickup for you. Ocean View is situated just north of Trivandrum, in a quiet and very safe area, just a few meters from the warm Arabian sea. There is a brand new swimming pool, all our rooms are done to a very high standard.

Our excellent cook who will create tasty vegetarian delights. All meals are vegetarian. In the immediate area is a range of low priced restaurants if you feel like exploring the culinary delights of Kerala. Ocean View will be open year-round. Creating a welcoming environment for any activity you would like to fill the space with. Yoga, Meditation, Painting, Drawing, Study, Hanging out or maybe exploring the great temples of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

We are in contact with some of the areas top Ayurvedic doctors. This is a more traditional form of health and wellbeing than we are used to in the west. Ayurvedic treatment will as a minimum need 10 days, where you have had a few days to settle in before starting. Talk with us about this before you book.

If you are coming in from the USA we can recommend getting treatments done at an excellent local private hospital. We have had a long and successful relationship with the hospital and its top-quality doctors.

Dentistry can also be done to a very high standard, and again we know and can put you in touch with the kindest of dentists.

I look forward to sharing time with you all here in Kerala.
