Stayed a night here during shooting of Shivaji Surathkal 2. The place is quite surrounded by nature and transports you to your grandma’s place when we were kids. The team was very hospitable. The food was homely and I had a terrific meal. Felt I should come back with my family soon.

Areca County

If you are looking for a clean, warm and welcoming home away from home this is the place to stay! Great ambience, hygienic and delicious food, aesthetically designed rooms and above all the best hosts we have ever met so far. You have a mini library, carroms and bikes which kids especially will love! There's farm walk and camp fire too. Thanks Team Areca for making our stay memorable.
Areca County is one of the most beautiful stays I have ever stayed at. The team is very warm and welcoming. It's location amidst the areca farm makes it a quaint gateway from the city life. The food is hearty and delicious 🙂
The property is beautiful set in a very scenic place with beautiful cottages. We were unfortunate as the water was stinking and muddy in the bathroom, the bed linen was sub standard, over used nylon sheets and not cotton, smelly blanket and the staff was disinterested and continuously on the mobiles. If only the place is managed well it will become a very nice place to stay. The owner reduced the tariff after hearing our complaints. Thank you.
One of the best stays in Honnavara.
They make sure you are comfortable and have the best experience.
Food is top class. Simple vegetarian food which I'm sure many of them wouldn't even had it.
Taste is 5 star.
Cottages are clean and has all the necessary things.
It's like a home away from home.

Farm walk is also amazing with names of trees present which makes it easy to understand.

Hosts are amazing people!!!

Thank you for making our week long stay memorable.
We stayed in a family cottage at Areca County for one night. Needless to say, the experience was wholesome.
The cottage was very well maintained and clean including the bathroom. Options for breakfast are limited since it is a homestay, but we had no complaints with whatever was served.
Provision of bikes and an e-scooter definitely added to the experience.
The staff were very friendly. They served us fresh watermelon juice as welcome drink, even though we checked in at 10 pm.
They have managed to create a very homely ambience within the property and I would recommend this place to anyone who needs to take a break from their hectic city life. I look forward to staying here again.
