I visited this place with my friends for 2 days trip and each of us decided to bring our family for at least 3-4 days outing. Very beautiful place, surrounded by arecanut trees. The room was very clean and all the bedsheets & bedspreads were washed. Friendly staff, they got excellent hospitality skills, and they followed all the govt guidelines(like wearing masks). The food was simply superb, we ate the best Malad style of food. There are plenty of places to visit nearby (even Kodachadri is 1hr journey), you can plan for at least 2-4 days outing with Family/Friends. I recommend this place is 100% the best option if you planning an outing near Shivamogga/Chikkamagaluru.
We were a group of 9 people and we booked our stay at Barekal farmstay where we had a very great time. This place is located in a beautiful lush green farm and is around 70 km from kodachadri base point.
They gave us 3 rooms which were really clean and spacious enough to accommodate four in a room . Non veg food is not in the package but if you want you can tell them before hand and they will cook according to your will . We have asked them to serve chicken kebab and fish fry which was really really yummy . Alcohol is allowed but you will have to get your own. Bon fire is provided as complimentary but only till 12 am.
Special mention to Ashok who has been very kind to us and our helping hand during our whole stay.
We were a group of 16 .. 3 families with 3 generations together. Farmstay set in the midst of nature was awesome, food was good, place was spick and span. Vikram you are an amazing host. The room in room really bonded the 3 generations together. Earthy touch to the farmstay is beautiful !!!! We strongly recommend this place
This is 4th or 5th time i am visiting this place, every visit there is always a warm welcome form nature and need not to mention by Vikram and his team. Lots of places to explore around. If your trek freak then you will find lots of places around which is untouched by people. Kind of food served here will take your taste buds to heaven, and you will be licking your finger :-P
Cleanliness on the room is excellent, easily 10 people would fit in the room.
Awesome place, the perfect home stay with home cooked food. We stayed for 3 nights along with friends families. This was one of our best vacations. Excellent hospitality by Vikram and Sharad. Well maintained room.Lot of space for the kids to play with paddy and areca nut fields around. Vikram also arranged and took us for local sight seeing at a nominal cost.
We definitely want to make an another trip with few more friends.
