Everything was clean and you cannot help but admire the thought process behind the construction and setup. You will also get a fridge , gas arrangement and can utilize common washing machine. Food and Hospitality We were welcomed with local refreshing raagi drink . We had pleasure of having 2 wonderful meals with Rajeev. It had numerous local cuisines ( 4-5 curries , 2-3 raita , 2-3 chutneys + herbal drinks ) at a very economical cost. One evening when we returned from our tour totally exhausted ,they arranged snacks and evening drinks for us. Another thing worth mentioning is Rajeev grows many of these ingredients/vegetables in house . He follows open kitchen idea which you are welcome to inspect. Rajeev Rajeev is a wonderful and knowledgeable person, down to earth and owns a gentle soul . On our arrival , he briefed us about gokarna history and places around it ( Yes, he could be a very good guide ). Next day when we were getting ready for our day adventure , he packed Raagi drink for us in a thermos :) He has a positive , inspirational outlook towards life and we enjoyed our conversations with him. He enlightened us about the local practices, herbs and their uses, history. We also got an opportunity to try Kombucha tea . My wife calls it the fizzy drink. He even helped in washing/cleaning our car. Museum He owns a personal museum and has good local artifacts and arts collection. You can also make use of the small library .If time permits do pay a visit. We are looking forward to enjoy Rajeev's hospitality next time we are in gokarana.”

“Shantidham is definitely one of the most beautifully located properties I have visited so far. If you are looking for a few days of relaxation with good food, definitely worth visiting this place. The rooms are clean and comfortable with the perfect balcony to catch that morning sunrise from your room itself. Satish and the rest of the team have been perfect hosts. We could see dolphins in the sea from the property and it just made the experience even better! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Gokarna and would love to visit again soon!”

“We LOVED our stay here, we arrived super early from the train/bus and felt like we arrived in paradise! We were able to check in to our room early as the room was free and as soon as we sat on our private balcony we saw dolphins in the ocean, a sight we saw over the next few days too, even with the door open while in bed, wow, amazing! The best location, tucked away but easy walk to kudle beach and further down Om to the headland and beyond. The staff (and dogs) were awesome, and the food from the restaurant was tasty, and with an even better view. Such an easy stay and easy to recommend, thank you!”
