David and Morvarid really took care of us, serving excellent food and making us feel part of their family, not just paying guests. They are both witty and interesting companions. There we were, in the fenced off jungle, on an interesting organic farm....amazing! The highlight for me was swimming in the quiet green river, with a monkey sauntering across it... More

I knew I was going to be staying at The Hermitage on my visit to Belgaum, but I had not bargained for the myriad culture shocks, which hit me in quick succession, as the hooded jeep turned off the macadam road 45 kms before the city on the highway from Goa. It was a case of “systems failure”. First, both... More

If you want peace, nature, a rural setting, excellent food and wonderful hosts, this place is for you. What a wonderful environment to relax. David and Morwarid really looked after me, arranging pick up from airport, showing me the local sights and helping me organise my onward trip to Hampi and Goa. I stayed in the Gota, the orginal location... More

An adorable family, a gorgeous surrounding, the most impressive peacefulness you could imagine, no network (and almost no electricity), a delicious cuisine, wild animals, only three bungalows, all different and with a special touch (one is a machan, perched in a tree!). An unforgettable experience that really recharged our batteries (but you'll have to deal with your fear of insects!... More

Finally went to this place in Jan 2013 after wanting to go there for a couple of years and it was worth the wait. Its a great place if you dont mind creepies and crawlies but one has to realise that we are encroaching on their habitat. The whole place is done up really well and you cant ask for... More

I am a city person and was persuaded by a friend to go to the Hermitage. I was delighted. The place is in the middle of nowhere and you will need to arrange for someone to collect you. The power goes off regularly and the rooms are basic, but the food, conversation and general ambiance more than makes up for... More

The guesthouse is situated amongst farmland and forest and is several kilometres from the nearest town. The owners have taken a lot of care in the design and maintenance of the rooms and common areas, and it is a lovely spot to relax. We stayed with two kids and they enjoyed the variety of wildlife around (frogs, spiders, snakes and... More
