If you are looking for a beautiful homestay in Gokarna 5 minutes from the beach by walk, this is the perfect place for you. The well equipped villa is in the midst of a 1.25 acre Casuarina grove that you will have just for yourself. It is styled with the local architecture so that you can enjoy an authentic coastal experience. The villa is located just 3 kms from the Gokarna town center. Breakfast is also included in your stay.
The living-quarters of the villa covers merely 800 sq-feet of the 50,000 sq-feet of the area that you will have for yourself as we only rent it to one group at a time. Besides Casuarina trees (ಗಾಳಿ ಮರಾ) that dot the entire villa, it also contains mango, coconut and cashew trees.
The living quarters consists of a veranda, living room/kitchen, two bedrooms, toilet/bathroom. The second bedroom is on the first floor accessible by ladder-styled-stairs. Basic facilities are available in the villa including: fresh towels, bed-sheets, quilts, toiletries, refrigerator (including freezer), gas-stove, clean cutlery/utensils, waste disposal, yoga-mat and so on. Hot-water is accessible through a wood-burning stove.
A few benches and hammocks are also setup inside the villa to relax in the outdoors. You can simply walk down to the Dubbanasisi beach which is less than 5 minutes from the villa.
If you are new to Gokarna, have a look at amazing places to visit around our villa here. The Uttara Kannada district is a perfect picture of nature’s bountiful landscapes dotted with amazing waterfalls, spiritual temples and wonderful beaches. Uttara Kannada might be primarily known for two reasons: beaches and shrines but it has so much to offer. In the near future, we are going to update the website with 1-day and 1/2 day itineraries. Don’t hesitate to ask for more info. Not to boast, but as we are natives of Gokarna, we know the places inside and out!
Ashok initially constructed this spacious villa as a retirement home and styled it to blend in with the local architecture.
