Vanavihar homestay is a beautiful place to stay- excellent service, good rooms and honest price. I took a one bedroom suite that had a small kitchen. The homestay management provided all the necessary items required to cook. I had my 1 year son with me. So the kitchen really solved all my problem around food for my son. In fact...

A 3 day trip at this place was a truly awesome experience. Mr. Dhruva welcomed us to this cozy place which is situated in the midst of hills and plantations around.

A decent homestay, away from the city located amidst green surroundings. Value for money and the staff were friendly and co-operative. Do call them before reaching here, since mobile signal are bit weak at the place. You can view the hill surroundings from a telescope which is available at request. Aravindan.K

I stayed in Vanavihar Homestay where food was good, sight seeing was awesome. One must stay in a home stay, estates, or resort in Madikeri to feel this green, cold hill station. Home stays are really cheap and good. I recommend this place Vanavihar Homestay to all my friends who have a real thirst for nature.

The food given is of very poor quality. Can't compare to even those available on roadside. The owner has no knowledge of what a homestay is all about. The room is not that clean ( dont go by photos advertised in the website). Overall I would advice travellers to avoid this homestay.
