“The BEST place to stay in Gokarna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2010

If you go to Gokarna, this is the place you want to stay at if you want to live in the village rather than at the beach. Trust us – we've seen almost every guest house in this town and stayed in 4 places before finally settling in Hari Priya. We would have left Gokarna the next day because we were unable to find a place we liked had it not been for the hospitality of Anand and his family. In fact, we enjoyed our stay there so much that we ended up staying for almost one month. There are several reasons for this: First of all, the rooms. They are immaculate! Clean, sunny, soft mattresses (if you've been traveling India for a while you'll really appreciate this), some even have their own balcony, but even if yours doesn't (like ours), there is a huge front porch to sit, read, chat with other guests over a cup of chai, etc. The house itself is very new, not even a year old, so everything works well (as a side note, this is also the reason why it's not in your guide book yet…). The location is pretty ideal – next to the central bus station, a couple of steps from the main road but tucked into a small side road so that you're away from the hustle and bustle of the main road but still in the heart of the village. Secondly, these are just the sweetest, nicest and most helpful people we've met in India so far – Anand and Anu have treated us like a part of their family right from the first day, so we really did feel like we had a home away from home. When my husband was sitting in the living room, eating his thali and watching cricket with the rest of the family, I knew that we would be staying a little longer than planned. Thirdly, the food! Anu is just the greatest cook, at least in Gokarna, and if you're interested in getting to know genuine South Indian cooking, you'll find yourself in gourmet heaven – they offer breakfast, lunch and dinner and all is delicious and healthy and it never gets boring! We are still dreaming of the lovely spinach Idli and the heavenly garlic chutney we couldn't get enough of – yum! They also offer laundry service, internet, taxi/rickshaw service and, fourthly, the best part: everything is very reasonably priced so you'll enjoy your stay even more. This has truly been our nicest stay in India by far and we wish there was a Hari Priya Residency in every town we are going to… Needless to say we will stay there again whenever we come back to Gokarna – in fact, we are even thinking about coming back to Gokarna just to stay at their place… Even if you're not looking for close contact with an Indian family and the Indian way of living – the owners are very welcoming but never pushy. So if you're simply looking for a nice place to stay for a couple of days: this is a great location. And if you're looking for a home away from home and new friends, this is the ideal place for you.

Hello Friends !!

Am Sowmya, Had been to Haripriya Residency on 27-12-2009. which is in gokarna
To be frank thats the marvellous place. Their tag line is "HOME AWAY FROM HOME" .. and you feel the same once you are there at hari priya Residency.

The people there are very very very sweet and also friendly. Especially "ANAND" Sir (Owner) .
I would 100% suggest you to halt at haripriya residency when ever you are there at Gokarna. The hospitality is Superb.

The motel is located in the middle of Gokarna, near the heart of the town. The owners are a great couple who attend to you at the drop of a hat. They also give you great recommendations of places to visit around the area. The facility is brand new (less than a year old) and very comfortable to stay at. The meals are provided in house and are absolutely mouth watering... I would stay here every time I visit. The rooms are very clean and a steal for the price.
