The stay was very comfortable and memorable, the food was excellent. The Cook prepared local delicacies using avl veggies freshly, very tasty. The manager was very cordial and helpful. He could coordinate and plan our local sightseeing
After finishing murudeshwar and gokarna trip, we decided to stay over for a night more around to explore Honavar. That’s when we came across Areca. We occupied a family suite which accommodates 4 adults and a child. We were quite happy with the stay. We had a great hospitality by their staff. They had a smile on their face throughout our stay and made it feel so homely. While we were checking out, we requested them to arrange food and pack it for our 2.6 year old toddler . They had arranged a wonderful meal for the kid’s travel and made sure the quality was in check with zero expectation in return. We will recommend this place to our near and dear ones for sure. Thank you so much Team Areca for your great hospitality.
A good place to stay surrounded by Areca trees. Minimal breakfast and dinner options, but whatever served was good. They had cycles within the property and rooms were neat so as the washroom. Cost wise its on a higher side. Definitely it had to be at least 25% lesser. Staffs were friendly. Grape juice given as welcome drink was good.
We travelled from US to meet our relatives and we stayed at areca county and we had a great experience at areca county. It is such a lovely place to stay amidst lush green areca plantations, with very spacious cottage for a family of 4. Nice sit out for the cottage where kids spent most of the time is really well designed. It gives us a totally different experience of staying so close to nature. The farm walk was so good and enjoyable. The food was awesome mostly the local delicacies where kind of once in a life time experience. The host pallavi and sandeep paid attention to each of our needs personally and we were so happy we picked this property to stay. Will definitely visit here again!!
A well maintained home stay ..clean and comfortable. Nice few outings like the mangrove trek near by ; also a good place to stay to visit the nearby Haigunda durgamba temple. Vegetarian Home style food with traditional dishes are a welcome change from routine.
We enjoyed stay at Areca county, stay there will take you to 1929. Nature walk within the stay was soothing experience. Thanks to Mr. &Mrs. Sandeep & Pallavi to make us feel like home. Food is a must try local cuisine thanks to the chef. Mr. Vinay has taken good care of us. It's near to eco beach, sharavathi backwater. For kids it's best to play around the stay with bycycle rides, carroms etc.
Thanks to Mr.Sandeep and Mrs.Pallavi for creating such a wonderful place to enjoy vacation with family. Thanks to Mr.Ravi for very delicious food especially local cuisine and thanks to Mr.Vinodh for a very good service. Accommodation and hospitality was great and it was pleasure staying at Areca County. Prefer to visit again.
I decided to pick this place for a week's workation in Feb 2022 although with a little bit of hesitation, but it turned out to be a brilliant decision. Areca County's location provides you a great location to explore the beautiful town of Honnavar and nearby (Murudeshwar, Gokarna). I really like the beaches nearby that probably aren't spoken about much (such as Dhareshwar). What I really liked - cleanliness and the design of cottages, wifi quality and the very friendly and helpful hosts. I will definitely recommend this place to anybody who wants to stay at or near Honnavar. I am already looking forward to being there again, sometime soon.
Excellent stay.homely environment.superb host couple. Peaceful areca farm walk.very comfortable homestay. Liked the wooden furnitures. Should improve breakfast.should not repeat items. Should change the locking of gate policy.difficult to move out before 6 am and move in after 11 pm whenever needed.
One of the best home stays in and around Honnavar . Couple of friends and I stayed here for a week as a workation and explore places around Honnavara. Hospitality: The best thing about Areca county for me has been the hospitality of the host couple (Sandeep and Pallavi). They make you feel right at home and were very prompt / meticulous with our needs and queries. The rooms are very well maintained and super spacious. They are surrounded with lush green vegetation and make you feel one with the nature. The constant bird chirping and the adjoining farm are just added benefits. Farm Walk: Sandeep's father took us around farm and gave us an insight on the the native vegetation and how the life revovles around farming Food: Areca county also provides traditional Honnavara food and it’s out of the world. Do try out their home made ice creams. Location: It is close to many tourist attractions like the beaches in honnavar, backwaters, mangrove forests and take an hour and half to reach Gokarna, Murudeshwara, Idugunji etc. If you are a birder then you have a bright chance to get some amazing bird photography Overall, a must-visit place for people interested in a get away into the nature away from their usual routine.…
