First the positives. The resort is located on the banks of the River Kapila. The cottages are also on the banks. Inside the cottages the rooms and toilets are clean and neat - although not very modern. The walls could do with a coat of paint. The host - Mr.Kashinath Damle was a very pleasant host. He took us around... More

"Serene" is the word that personifies this place. A tributary of the river "Nethravati" flows right through the middle of this estate. Hence the name"Stream of joy". The place inundates you with joy. The drive from bangalore is a challenge. After hassan, its all ghats. But fatigue will refrain from troubling once you reach the home stay. We stayed over... More

If you miss having any cousins or relatives in the malnad/western ghats, you need not regret, this is the go-to place for you!! :) Cottages along the river-front, amidst areca nut plantations with thick greenery all around you, a small island right across the river where thousands of chirping birds awaken you every morning and add to this an absolutely...

Superb Place in the lap of nature. Mr. Damle has humble behavior and great hospitality with amazing taste of food which can not be compared to anything. Our tiredness of 12 hours driving just vanished with warm welcome and the natural beauty of place.Must visit and stay places if You are going nearby.

I have visited tens of home stays in Western Ghats starting from Coorg, Sakleshpur to Chikmagalur region. But StreamOfJoy is best among these simply for it's location, river bank cottages and the hospitality. Whenever I have anybody coming far from North; I try to take them to a Home Stay and this place is always my first choice. The first... More

Location is amazing! But the rooms, food and hospitality was below average. We were bitten by some insects during the night while sleeping. The tiled roof has quite an inviting opening for insects and other things. The hospitality seen was not up to mark!

A brilliant location combined with out of the world hospitality and some amazing food makes this my favorite weekend destination !! Mr.Kashinath is a great host and his genuine desire to make sure his guests are comfortable is very evident in all aspects of the home-stay. I would highly recommend this place to families.
