My family and I stayed here for 3 days in late December. We decided to stay near Thirthahalli since it is centrally located in terms of easy access to interesting places such as Sakrebailu, Kavaledurga, Kundadri, Agumbe and Sringeri. It proved to be a good decision, particularly with this homestay and the hospitality provided by Arpita, Rachan, family and staff...

Located between Thirthahalli and Koppa, the place is easy to locate. Hostess and staff are very hospitable. Room (3 of us stayed in a big room with 4 beds). Witness to processing of arecanut (dehusking) by a power-driven machine. Farm workers and kitchen staff were seen working tirelessly through the day. Cuisine was quite tasty and service excellent. Dishing out...

This place is a 100 year old renovated home managed by a family which stay in-house, front-ended by a young lady. One room that we had booked was in the top floor of the house and the other one a cottage. This place is surrounded by a 10 acre tea-plantation, nice place for a lovely walk. Very close to Kuvempu's...

Unbelievably good food, superb location, good hosts, neat cottages. Proximity to nearby places like kuppali (kavishyla is a must visit), chibbalgudde, Bheemana katte, Mahishi, Agumbe, Kundadri (sunset views) is a big plus point.

The host took care to serve a variety of homely malnad cuisine. Outdoor activities are good to keep the visitors engaged. There is a space for cycling, cricket, basketball, badminton, etc. Roads to all surrounding tourist spots are good (Kevempu, Ganesha temple, Agumbe, River Bank, etc.). We travelled from Bangalore via Neelamangala-Channarayanapatna-Arsikere-Shimoga-Thirthahalli route. The road condition was very good except...

Its a cozy homestay more like a resort. Food is typical malnad style. Do not expect north Indian food to be served here. We enjoyed activities such as cycling, badminton , cricket and trekking.Rooms are a little small but overall it was good experience.
