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!

If you are looking for a nature stay and excellent vegetarian mangalore food, this is the place you should not miss. Cottages are neatly kept and has all basic needs - bed, fan, hot water, and best of all a river by the side! Home cooked food served hot just adds to the experience. Bird watching, walking by the river,... More
