Testimonials & Reviews

Unforgettable experience

Veena Avachat, Pune

I went with my friends from Pune. We stayed at Vihar Homestay at Sirsi for 6 days. We have no words to explain how much we enjoyed the stay as well as the trip..the homestay is so clean, calm, relaxing. It is not at all typical and commercial. It is very quiet, fearless and close to nature..the host couple is very nice..Dr Niranjan Bhat & Mrs. Kavita Bhat..cute couple. They served very authentic & delicious food. They also arranged the car service for our sight seeing which was good as well. We all wish to visit there more frequently.

Very nice 'Malenadu' hospitality

Ganapathi R, Bengaluru

Nice homestay located near Sirsi in the thick forest attached to a paddy field. The rooms are well maintained. The host are very friendly and knowledgeable about local places. When we were there we were treated like we were part of their family. The "malenadu" style food was great.
