It is a very good option to stay in and around Thirthahalli. The property is quite big. offers good facilities. Food is good as well. Pls try to get villas/rooms near the main house of the host. We went on a cycle ride in the morning, visited Bhimanakatte in the afternoon and kuppalli in the evening.. good experience overall.

Of all my vacation breaks I would rate this trip on the top of the list. The credit goes to Arpita and her family for making us feel at home with delicious food and hospitality. And the serene and beautiful surroundings made us feel at peace and relaxed. Overall the trip was a great success...Neelima Ranganekar(Pune)

Stayed here for 2 nights with wife and two children in the upstairs room in the main house. It is quite spacious and private. We all had a great time. Enough sites to see within reasonable driving distance, and the hosts gave good suggestions on places to visit and provided good directions. Very nice local road just outside the property... More

We stayed in the home stay from December 28 to 30th and it was one magical experience for us. We were 3 couples and had booked 3 cottages. Rooms were clean and in excellent condition. The most loved part for me was the Food, Food and only Food. Never miss the Lunch and Dinner served by them, it tastes excellent... More

We had been there for new year 2016 and had a very pleasant experience. This place is suitable to roam around from. We need almost a week to cover all the possible places though. Plan accordingly and the hosts Arpita and Rachan will guide you completely. When we roam around we may have to miss their tasty lunch. A guided... More
