“The muted sound of waves crashing on the shore, the gentle rustle of coconut leaves, combined with the languid atmosphere of the seaside, lulls the senses as one enters the beach house. The verandah is lined with Chettinad granite pillars. The sloped roof is supported by bears and rafters salvaged from a Chettinad property. Restoration has been done by Kerala carpenters who have introduced Kerala style carving and embellishments. The Mediterranean floor tiles are by Attangudi craftsmen. The tiles have a natural gloss that is the result of a unique process.” Visit the link to know more about this sun-kissed retreat: https://www.bennykuriakose.com/residential-1/vishram-by-the-sea
