Pocket friendly home stay @ Jog We were in Shimoga to attend our friend’s wedding. After the wedding, we planned to visit jog falls. After googling, we find out Matthuga, home stay. I would say its cheap and best. We were a total of 7 people and got the three rooms for accommodation. Hospitality is good. We didn’t try the... More

We, family of 5 (3 adults and 2 kids) stayed @ Matthuga in last week of July 2015 for two days. This place is 4 Kms after Talaguppa and 8 Kms before Jog Falls on NH206, about 200 meters from highway; sign boards are in place, easy to locate. Rooms and cottages are available in the midst of 10 acre... More

We had booked our stay at Matthuga almost a month in advance. The 10 acre property consists of a main bungalow housing around 5 rooms & cottages spread out amidst the areca nut plantation. Mr. Narahari, the owner, has personally overlooked the plantation of areca & many other spices over the last 15 years. In spite being busy with his... More

The location of the stay is really awesome. Fully surrounded by trees, plants, flowers, and the road which leads to this place. It is really nice. Your mobile range will be almost zero which means, you are totally out of your city life and your mobile battery will last for hours. We went there as a group of 15 friends,... More

Review is delayed by an year. However, wanted to review this place. Again, as always I have to give it to Trip Advisor to help us find this place. Needless to say our first preferance was the KSTDC hotel inside the Falls campus. However, monsoon time it became difficlut for us to find a place there and thus we wanted... More

This is my second review. I had given a 5 star in my first review. The main thing that has changed is that the caretakers have lost the earlier innocence. When we first visited the property a few years back, the caretakers had the innocence and I still remember what the woman said - "You are like guests to my... More

Kindly refer to my earlier reviews on TA about the same property. Probably, nothing much has changed, if it all something has changed, it is for the bad. For me being a repetitive customer using this services of this property was the serene location added to the home food. Now that the earlier Caretaker of the property does not stay... More

Stayed in the homestay for a day in July. It was a beautiful place with clean rooms. The caretaker was very kind and the food was very good. The bathroom was maintained neat. There was a nice place to play in front but because of rain we would not use it. The room was well lit with sunlight. I would... More
