The Homestay : This place brings real meaning to the word Homestay. Beautiful ambience, Peaceful atmosphere, Good and well maintained rooms and bathrooms, Nice interiors, River by the side, surrounded by plantations and green fields, lots and lots of birds around, Well maintained garden, a camp fire in the night, a refreshing hot water bath from traditional firewood heater (hanDe snana in kannada) and above all Tasty, Healthy and Nutritious fresh home-made FOOD what else do you need for a good holiday.
Location of Homestay : It is right on the Highway between Shimoga and Thirthahalli, hence, easily accessible and also near to many tourist spots. The river flowing beside the homestay is the biggest attraction. For a birder like me, it was heaven. I could spot numerous variety of birds, to name a few, Verditer Flycatcher, Indian Golden Oriole, Oriental Magpie Robin, Rufous Treepie, sunbirds, cormorants, herons, peacocks, kingfishers, egrets, kites.
The Hosts : Mr.Krupal is a very hospitable person who makes you feel at home by caring us, giving tips for our trips and totally made our stay comfortable. Mrs.Shobha Krupal is a fantastic cook. I wonder how she herself cooks and caters to so many people of different parties staying there at a time. Booking, checking in and out is not at all business-like. It was all in an informal way and that was really good.
Our Stay : We were a group of 9 from 3 families who went there during Deepavali (2nd, 3rd & 4th December 2013) stayed for 2 days and 2 nights. We visited Mahishi (Mutt & River point), Kavaledurga Fort (Hill), Bheemanakatte (Mutt and River point), Kundadri Hill and Kuppalli. Waiting to visit once more to spend time leisurely, in and around the homestay only.
The FOOD: The best part of the Homestay. To name a few delicacies, idlis, vadas, jamoons, holiges, akkirottis, payasas, for our breakfasts, Veg. layer biriyani, otthu shavige, kayi haalu, neeru dosas, rice, rasam, sambar, chapathis, curries, etc… for luches and dinners. Yummy Milk, curds, ghee and buttermilk are from their own cattle. Coffee or tea with bajjis and bondas in the evening was enjoyable.
One suggestion to the owners : Mattresses need to be more comfortable.

My 2 nights stay was memorable for its food, ambience and the hosts. Food was top notch with malnad cuisine at its best. Particularly the river fish! If you are looking for peace and tranquility and really need a break, this is the place to go. Decided to visit again with family.
