We stayed as family for one night in 2014. Our experience was excellent. We enjoyed the food, evening bonfire and overall stay. Mr Hegde was very cooperative and so was the entire staff. Regards Atul

It was a very memorable experience for us staying at Bakula Home Stay. Excellent hospitality of Mr.Hegde and the staff there. Accommodation, Food, everything was excellent. I strongly recommend this home-stay - for vegetarians it is the best. Definite value for money we pay.

We had a peaceful Diwali of 2013 at Bakula.Especially the bath in the Kalave river and early morning walks in the forest. The Vasu-Baras puja is something which we will remember for a long time to come. The accomodation was basic but clean and the vegeterian food was to our liking. Bakula is the perfect place to have as a base camp to explore the wonderful region around. Route maps drawn by Mr. Hegde helped us to navigate on quite confusing forest routes. We are looking forward to be back in Bakula soon with nature loving friends and family.

I would say in one word "AWESOME"......... We have are a team of 10 members From Swiss Re shared Pvt Ltd. The food was really nice with typical north Karnataka. A great thank to Manju and his family for providing and arranging the things. A special thanks to Hegde as well for providing the facilities very neat and clean. The cottage was just amazing, felt like was there in another world.

Hello...10 of us team mates had a lovely experience at the home stay. The rooms are neat, comfortable and we all felt happy staying in such a nice environment. The staff is very helpful and showed good hospitality. The food was delicious. At the end of our one day home stay, our thoughts were '' if only we could spend couple more days in this beautiful spot!!! '' Very calm place and lovely nature around !! Overall a very good experience indeed :-)))

This is one fabulous place. Even when it was scorching hot in Bangalore, Bakula Home Stay was cool!!! Thanks to the great hospitality extended by the staff, and Mr Hegde. Right from food to sight seeing, every thing was well coordinated and taken care. We are longing to be there in monsoon!

A beautiful place in middle of nature. Peaceful, quiet and also friendly staff. We would recommend this a best place for family weekend outing, no need to have second thought of the hospitality food and facilities. We a group of 5 family been there on the weekend (13, 14th April 2013). The food was awesome; cottages were clean and spacious, Though it was summer, the stream in the backyard was beautiful and was a good place for kids to play in water. Thank you, Mr. BG Hegde and other staff. Ravikumar Bangalore

I visited this place as advised by one of my doctor friend from Haveri (Dr Rohan Kamat)between 23rd to 27 of this month (Jan 2013). I find this place as most exotic, close to nature with best hospitality and food. The owner Mr. Hegde is really a Gentleman with his Keen interests in well-being of his guests. I highly recommend this place for a Family stay without second thought. one suggestion i would give to any person going to this resort is never go for sight seeing because this place is really worth enjoying and relaxing for a week long.

We a group of 10 had a 3 day stay at Bakula Homestay in the month of December. The weather was pleasant and so was our experience. The spacious rooms were clean and comfortable. The sumptuous local food was simple yet tasty.The caretakers were efficient and Mr.Hegde was truly helpful.Communication with the caretakers was a challenge because they spoke and understood only Kannada.We enjoyed every moment of our stay in the peaceful and pure environment. I would love to visit it again, but not before I learn a little bit of Kannada.

Was here with friends for some peaceful time away from d city, had a great time. The service they provide is brilliant. Advice you to ask them for their 'home made' food, its too good. The stay was worth every penny. You are totally isolated from d city, there's hardly any phone coverage :/ you can do anything you want here n they provide u with almost everything ;)

Four of us stayed in this home stay last weekend and we simply loved it. The hospitality of the care taker and owner Mr Hegde was extra ordinary. The Havyaka Brahmin food served was delicious and totally different to what you get in other parts of karnataka. The river in the backyard was in full flow and was a sight to behold. The cottages were clean and spacious and we loved every minute of our stay. I will definitely visit this place again.

We are a team of 21 members from Molex Bangalore stayed for one day in all the five cottages. The home stay surrounded by greenery and areca nut plants and the stream flowing in between is superb. We had our breakfast near the stream and great dinner with campfire in the home stay premises was memorable. The facilitates, hospitality provided by Mr. B G Hegde was amazing as he is always telling that to think home stay like our next home and from my experience I can say whoever wants to enjoy the nature within Karnataka, they must go to Bakula Home stay. A special thanks to Manju & family for fulfilling our needs during the stay One more thing I need to mention here is the guidance provided by Mr. B G Hegde was incredible. He told us to call any time if we struck anywhere during our place visiting and we called many times for route, food etc and he was so kind in answering and also arranged lunch in the Manjuguni temple. So friends, you might have visited many home stays but visiting Bakula is a very different experience.

Hi, Ours was a TEAM OUTING from organisation and we started thinking it is just another place away from home. But at BAKULA HOME STAY we felt STAY at our very HOME,never away from home. Thanks to Mr. B G Hedge who like an elderly person of any loveful family, took care of our food/stay ontime, also was there always to guide to the sight seeing with caution not to get into water in CHUNCHALLI FALLS and so. HIGHLIGHT- Breakfast/Lunch in the stream running in the property. FRIENDS, just BE THERE..

Organized by my friend for a three days stay, at the end we wanted to stay further, but for our professional commitments. Thanks to hospitality and good service by Mr Hegde , we can say its home away from home. We need minimum of a weeks stay to completely see all the surrounding places. Keep it up Mr. Hegde your personal touch makes us feel homely.Hope to stay for a longer time during my next visit with all my friends and relatives.

We had booked 3 cottages for 3 family and bruno (dog). It was memorable one for all of us. Bakula homestay is just like staying in nature surrounded by thick forest, river. With great hospitality from Mr hegde and manju (staff), Bakula homestay has become one of my favouite place to relax. It is an ideal relaxing place with only nature.

People....!! Wow !!!! Really amazing place to stay with your dear one Traditional food with friendly service will feel like you're at home. Deep in the forest, next to river, nature hum will take you to next world. Natural massage in water fall, Hanging Bridge, Arecanut plantation walking will make you to at least stay couple of days here.

After much thinking, finally decided to stay @ Bakula on our recent visit to Sirsi. The first expression after reaching the place was.. WOW!! Amazing location, Excellent host and guide in MR. Hegde who takes care of all our needs. Nice staff. The best part is the river flowing in the backyard. Will definitely suggest people visiting Sirsi to stay @ BAKULA.

It was a wonderful experience at the home-stay, the hospitality extended to us by Mr Hegde and staff was exceptional. The location of the home stay is very scenic and a whole lot of places nearby to visit. The icing on the cake was of-course was the "havyaka oota" - a number of mouthwatering vegetarian dishes served to your hearts content. An ideal holiday in short
Sreesha Friday, August 26, 2011
