Suraj and his team gave us a good welcome and we checked in by evening. Rooms are neat and... More

We stayed there for two days and one night. Everything was right in place. Loved the silence around a lot. Especially the campfire arranged by the team out there was very well done. The staffs around helped us a lot without any sign of irritation :)

We booked the rooms about a month in advance and right from the start of choosing this homestay, HV had been in touch with us regularly through email. The day we arrived at HV, we were awe-stuck with this place. Be it the location, the rooms,... More

Nice property with absolute privacy and safe feeling. Food was also good homely and tasty and the silence was very refreshing. Worth a visit with a group so that you can enjoy with camp fire but holds good for couple as well. Shankara falls is awesome. Mr. Suraj, Dilip and Pappu were very helpful.

This is the second time that I took my family in this resort. The last time I went there in 2012, the food was really very tasty, but this time, all we got was disappointment only.
