We stayed there few days back,If you really want to stay away from the hustle-bustle of the city, then you must visit the place.the remoteness of the place might be a hindrance to reach.I spend the evening with beautifully cooked barbecue at the back side. Something to Cherish forever...while staying in the Cottage. Best home-stay in mid of Nature beauty.... More

Very friendly staff, felt very much at home. Kusuma is an excellent concierge. Gowramma and Nagaraj are amazing cooks. They will make their best efforts to include food items of your choice. Located just besides the periphery of the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary. A good choice of homestay if you are a nature lover or looking for a vacation at a... More

Service and staff were excellent , however the place is very badly kept and needs some refurbishment. Kusuma was very good and made sure we were very well taken care of. Staff run it like their own home and it may be a good idea to visit when the owners are around !

Location: This place is very far(50+kms) from Chikamaglur. There are patches on the route that have no roads (read washed away mud roads) and no street lights or houses/fields on the sides.we spent a fortune hiring taxis and paying a to and fro fare. The hosts arranged for a drop to Chikamagalur on "discounted" rates -charging us a 2 way... More

Our family of 4 stayed one night at Valley of Birds. We had such fun times. Mr. Bird is a warm and hospitable person who passionately wants to show you a great time. He has a super-efficient team backing him up. The cook Nagaraj's local food was to die for. It was served to us in infinite amounts by the... More
