The places was hidden in valley and extremely peaceful. The house is rustic and clean . Food was exceptional !!! We had elderlies and pets accompanying us. The elderlies enjoyed the fresh greenary and the trek While the pets loved the free run around the property.. Dev is simple man with a huge heart and always with a lovely smile. A true man showcasing art of sustainable living. He along with his team made us feel at home. Perfect place for a family stay if your looking for good food and peaceful experience !!! Recommendations : Neer dosa with veg stew ,local fish curry ,chicken lollipop, vada ,baby corn fry and chicken curry
My second visit here and it's amazing that the quality of the food, linens and the hospitality remains as good as ever! Genuinely enjoy coming back here and will certainly be back for more!! Thank you Halemane Homestay!
Halemane was an incredible find. Great food (Dev is an amazing Chef and the food was fantastic). We had a wonderful time... both at the home stay and trekking around the place with their dogs. We will definitely visit again.
As soon as the lockdown restrictions were lifted and tourism resumed, the itch to travel also resumed. After discussion with friends and family, decided on Halemane Homestay at Sakleshpur for one night stay. Immediately the booking was done for 5 families which ensured that we got the entire homestay to ourselves which was important for us at that time due to covid-19. We reached the homestay by 11AM but we were greeted with a weather which felt like 6AM in the morning. We visited the place during peak monsoon time (August 2021) and it rained throughout the day. We were greeted by Mr Devraj and Shadow (labrador). As the homestay was recently opened post travel restrictions, they had just done the minimum maintenance (rooms were clean and neat but the outdoor was not properly maintained). Floors were always wet due to continuous rain. Would recommend anyone visiting this place to take separate slippers for using inside the homestay. The lunch was amazing and can't explain in words. Mr Devraj asked one of the person from homestay to take us to a small waterfall which required some walking through the coffee estate. Please take a big rubber boots unless you want the leeches to attack you. Everyone was bitten by the leeches including my 3 year old daughter. Once we reached the waterfall, kids had an amazing time over there. In the evening, shadow took us to the meadows for a walk. Kids loved playing with shadow. The next morning breakfast was sumptuous and we had our tummy filled. Mr Devraj informed us that due to monsoon, no nearby places are open and hence we directly left for Bangalore. Will visit again during non-rainy season. Thanks Mr Devraj and shadow for being a wonderful host.…
4 of us friends decided to do an impromptu trip for the weekend and it turned out great! Devraj was very cordial and inviting. He always encourages you to eat heartily and there was always an endless stream of hot delicious food coming in from their kitchen. The rooms and facilities are clean and rustic. The pets on the property, especially Shadow (the black lab) will fill your heart with joy. Shadow will accompany you on trips around the property, woof when you are straying from the right path and guide you back safely to the house too! He loves just lying down near your feet and being your feet warmer in exchange for snuggles and scratches. Tip: Bring your own toiletries, house slippers (as the floor can get cold) and wear tall rubber boots for walking around the property (as there will be leeches!)…
Must visit place to explore old style home between the Jungle along with mouth watering food. Had an amazing and one time experience exploring route to reach waterfall which is near to halemane (they'll provide guide to help you reach to the waterfall)
If you are looking for a second home, adventurous trek (walk in the river stream, paddy to reach the ultimate waterfall) and extraordinary food in Sakleshpur, look no other than Halemane. Thanks Dev for hosting us again and for your amazing hospitality. Good bye until we see you again 😊💪
If you are looking to relax and unwind yourself then this is the place to be. With a in house water fall and a beautiful stream this is a perfect getaway for those looking for some great adventure and fun! Plus the host just pampers you with some amazing food! Literally the best dining experience I have ever had in any homestay. Best host we have ever come across. Totally recommend this to a group of friends, family or a couple.
Came here on 10th September We were welcomed by the host Dev a humble man and his even more humble staff and the most well behaved Labrador -"Shadow". The food served on all the three days of our stay were so delicious and not a single dish that I would say we could keep aside. Halemane as its name suggest did give us an experience that none of us had before - very authentic and surrounded by the beauty of nature. All the restrooms were clean and had hot water. Its a must visit place if you love green landscape and small waterfalls
It was a wonderful stay. Very humble staff. Food was excellent!!! Food served to you is one of the best you will ever have....The owner of the homestay is wonderful and will make sure you are comfortable.
