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.

The space

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

Guest access

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.

Literally right next to the beach... And it's a non-commercial and dog friendly beach... The place is worth the value of money.. :) Safe and Secure and Arnab got us a bike too. Very hospitable and friendly host.. Must give a try.

Arnab's place was a pleasant surprise! It's located less than a minute's walk from Serenity Beach and is simple and convenient, to say the least. Although we couldn't personally meet Arnab, he was a great host who kept checking on us, in case we needed anything. His staff, Ajay, was very friendly and was more than helpful the during our stay. p.s.: we had to check in really early and Arnab was very accommodating and had the room ready well in time. Also, we needed to rent a bike and Arnab's guy had it dropped off at the Hermit Crab itself so we didn't have to go looking! Thank you for the great experience. Cheers!

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.
