The Hermit Crab is a quaint little guest house by the Serenity Beach. If you want to experience life on a beach, then you have stumbled upon the right place. While the guest house emulates the bygone era of the french, it also gives you a glimpse of life by the coast.
One word that describes the room is comfort. Get a home away from home right on the beach. With an old grandfather's bed with a cosy mattress, forget all your worries. Wake up to the waves crashing and the sun right above the horizon beckoning you.
A wardrobe for your essentials and a washroom which meets your basic requirements.
Minimalist with a touch of oriental, the room will make you feel welcome. A red wall is the most attractive part of room and you are more than welcome to click as many selfies against it
There is an open shower in the courtyard. The guests are requested to use the shower to wash off any sand coming from the beach. The terrace of the guest house is open to all and has an amazing view of the bay, is also quiet breezy throughout the day. A perfect to relax and catch the sunrise or a moonrise.
Interaction with guests
I am mostly available in person or just a phone call away for any queries.
Guests are kindly requested not to do any kind of cooking in the rooms.
Take care of the rooms and treat it as their own house.
A maid is available on request to get the rooms cleaned
Avoid entering the rooms with sandy clothes if returning from the beach, the open shower can be used to wash off the excess sand.
I came to Pondi as a kid and totally fell in love with the place and it's streets, food and beaches. Not much of a city person, so after having tried my hand at being a chef in the cities, I decided to move back to this place I love to call my home and start The Hermit Crab.
I always look forward to meeting various people from different walks of life and sharing stories with them.
