We were one of the first groups who have stayed in Belachikatte home stay.
When we booked this, we were a little worried how it would be because there were no reviews available about the same.We (2 families) stayed here for a day in November 2015, on our way to Kollur and Gokarna.
Known for King Cobras and heavy rainfalls, Agumbe is one of the best places(full of mountains and good roads) that I had visited in Karnataka. Some of the places that has not been explored by fellow travelers.
Naveen and Family(Owners) has given this new house for home-stay purpose. It basically contains 3 Bedrooms(Non AC type). Their family house and their farms are quite near to this property.
The Malnad food served by the family was really tasty.(Both Veg and Non Veg available).
As this is a new home stay, its quite neat and clean everywhere.
For the Safety perspective, Naveen’s family used to stay in the same homestay when guests are available.
Agumbe as such has very limited homestays (probably 2 or 3). So in case if you plan to stay in Agumbe, it’s better to do the booking quite early.
1750(try negotiating) / person (including veg or non veg food) seems to be quite a decent rate as others in the same area are charging around 2000.
The best point is that its quite near to the major attractions in Agumbe.
I would certainly recommend this home-stay to all my fellow travelers here.
Points to Improve:
a) Some more amenities like Children play area.
b) A name board on the road side, else it would be really tough for the travelers to figure it out.
Please ensure that you have enough fuel in your car as there is no Petrol Pumps available in Agumbe town.
Only 3 rooms, all are of same type.
