Nice house and good location near from the beach and easy to reach Pondichéry by riding But need a real refurbishment Rats were living on the first floor, can’t let anything in the kitchen

Response from Nigel:
I feel this is a very unfair review. I agree a rat (singular) came into the house but everything was done to remove the vermin (including a refund!). Since this occupancy two more quest have visited with no such comments. whilst I don't want to belittle my guests concerns (we take all feedback seriously) one has to appreciate that when you want to experience a closeness to nature. . . .nature may want to experience a closeness to you!

Hi Kanaka, Many thanks for your review which has been taken onboard. I'm now in the process of carrying out several repairs to the house following a very busy November-December period. All items will be addressed before the house is released for renting. Regards Nigel

Omkara is quaint bungalow that is best enjoyed by a group or large family. A special mention to Nigel and his manager Murugan who were very helpful and ensured we had a great time. Looking forward to visiting Omkara again.
