Testimonials

It was a pleasure to stay at Rajeev's home at Gokarna. It is located on hill top in a nice an quite area surrounded by greenery. The sea is visible from the balcony and west facing rooms. Mr Rajeev was very helpful. He guided us about nearby places to visit, got us morning tea, fresh kaju fruit form the garden etc, and even got us wood for bonfire. Positive things about the house: Excellent location, 2 minutes by car, (5-10 min walk) from bus stand. 5km away from Kudle and Om beach. Located on hill top, surrounded by greenery on all side. View of Arabian sea from balcony, cool breeze. Parking for two cars. Safe neighborhood. Very helpful owner. Negative: My internet dongle was working in 2G only mode. But, I can hardly blame Rajeev for that.

They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but I would say 1000 words aren't enough to portray the picture of the hospitality provided by Mr.Rajeev. The only thing I had to do is to do the booking, rest all were literally taken care of by Mr.Rajeev. Since i was travelling by my personal vehicle he even suggested the best route along with the places I can visit on the way. The place is well situated on a hill overlooking the Arabian Sea. In the midst of greener, added to the delight the rain and rainbow. Away from the maddening crowd of peaheads and horns/honking are the sounds of nature by peacock and hornbill. Accomdation - the place was airy and bright, well maintained 10/10 Cleanliness - spick and span 10/10 Hospitality - amazing , no second thoughts 10/10 Food - to die for. Don't miss the local breakfast - khotte idli. Also, try out the refreshing kokum beverage. 10/10 Facilities - well you have everything you ask for. Even the smallest thing is provided as small as a toothpick. 10/10 He was so eager to help us at every step, including the part where he accompanied us to the trek to paradise and half moon beach. Some of the things which you cannot afford to miss while you are in Gokarna. Finally, I would end with this note: The only reason I would return to Gokarna is not only to enjoy the beach but more importantly the hospitality provided by Mr.Rajeev.

The Host - is really the host. Rajeev - one of the finest & one of the most warm host I have came across in my life so far. He knows how to treat people & not at the cost of money but at the cost of warmness of heart. The property of his is awesome. Fully furnished & more than 2000 sq ft & totally was mine. The place of his is not totally described in the description. Its on top of a hill, with sea - jungle - mountains view of total gokarna. He serves you different juices which me & my partner became fan. The food given by him was a vegan's paradise & vegetarian's heaven. He took us out to show Gokarna - & he told us the legendary epics of this southern Kashi(Gokarna's another name). The temples, mountain caves like Yana, undiscovered beaches like Paradise beach & many more this guy knows this place. & trust me he didn't changed me money for his whole days time of this service. I am a big fan of his now. His property is fully & beautifully decorated with big windows, varandas , roof top - just awesome. Lastly would like to say others - be in his property to enjoy Gokarna. He is better than any other costly resort & I mean it. Don't forget to have the juices - you will love it. Latly to Rajeev - a big thanks ! you really did what I have not dreamt even. Please keep up the good work God bless you & your family.

Our trip to Gokarna was perfect, thanks to Mr. Rajeev and the house. The place was peaceful, calm and just amazing! The view of the beach and star gazing from the roof at night made it even better. Mr. Rajeev was the most friendly and helpful host, guiding us through the must sees of the locality. Having made the mistake of going to gokarna by train instead of drving,Mr Rajeev offered to pick us up from the railway station and even lent us his car for the 2 days that we were there. From the fresh coffee in the morning to star gazing the clear night sky, each day was perfect! For those visiting gokarna, I would definitely say Rajeev's is the place to go for the perfect holiday!

We had a three day trip planned for gokarna and I must say Mr Rajeev played a very important role to make our trip memorable, to start with the moment I booked the place he was continuously interacting with us even before we reached there. On reaching there, he picked us up from the bus stand, we came to know that such an amazing place it was, looked even better than the pictures. The breakfast offered by Mr Rajeev is a must try, he prepares some mouth watering dishes, he took us too some amazing scenic views, which even a guide wouldn't have known, we were thrilled by his knowledge and experience. He offered us as much as help he could, from taking us to the places nearby to arrangements for a birthday every possible thing. We are obliged to him for such an amazing hospitality. In gokarna, his place is a must visit, didn't feel like coming out that place. Would definitely like go there again and again.

This is the perfect place to stay if you are ever in Gokarna. A very homely place and is hosted by one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. As soon as you enquire about the place, Mr Rajeev tries his best to make you as comfortable and possible giving all the facts about the place. Once you do make the decision to stay there, you just don't need to worry anymore. He'll help you at each stage even picking and dropping to the nearest bus stop. He makes you feel right at home and even though we had to cut short our trip and couldn't make use of it, he is more than happy to travel with you and show you amazing places near Gokarna. The house is very spacious and has a beautiful view from the balcony and the rooftop. 10/10 would definitely recommend this place to friends and family, and would only choose this place to stay whenever I visit this beautiful place.

The stay was memorable, Mr Rajeev was very accommodating, no qualms about the place, picturesque, walk able distance from the beaches, he in fact came to pick us up from the bus stand even though it was just 5kms walk, plan to visit again and Mr Rajeev's home is the place to stay,one of the most genuine guy i've met, accompanied us to most of the places, gave us directions as to how to plan the trip, very enthusiastic and warm.

Hill top view is the best located homestay we have visited so far. Gokarna's visit was made memorable because of the serene sea view from the window and Rajeev's warm hospitality. The efforts he makes to make one feel at home are praise worthy. Yana rock, paradise beach and vibhuti falls trek are also a must do with Rajeev. A quaint and scenic homestay, ideal for people who wish to experience the uttara kannada in its local flavour. You can experience the glory of raging sea on a moonlit night like no other from his windows and terrace. This place is marked on my map for a revisit soon. Thanks Rajeev for making our trip memorable.

I think choosing to stay at Rajeev's homestay instead of regular resorts is the most wise decision I have taken during our trip. The hospitality shown by Rajeev is really the awesomest thing to remember in our gokarna trip. Starting from arrival at bus stop to hiring local auto, shopping, picking up to dropping at the beaches to till dropping us at bus stop all was arranged by this awesome man Rajeev. Hardly someone is so honest and well mannered. The house is on the top of the hill, from where the beach is clearly visible. The view of morning sun rise and evening Sunset is so so beautiful from the homestay balcony. Well maintained house with all the homely appliances are well kept for the use. it hardly 5 min away from Kudle beach. Mr Rajeev, I can't expect much from you after having your hospitality. From me it's 5star out of 5 for the service and extra 5 star for your homely reception. thank you so much. Hope to see you again.

I've stayed in Rajeev house for 1 night, arrived so early in the morning and Rajeev came to pic me up! If you need anything just ask Rajeev (who live just the house downstairs) and he will manage it for you. The localization is in the top of Gokarna, 10min by walk from the city center. Rajeev is really passionate, and can show you in exchange of some money all the beach around and also the Yana mountain with some waterfalls ! So i can only recommend to don't hesitate to go there if you want to visit Gokarna. Good luck for the new construction Rajeev :)
