Please do not send me your phone number and expect call back. Airbnb does not allow to exchange phone numbers or e-mail id till reservation is made. When you send me your phone number or e mail id it comes hidden. Once the reservation is done I will contact you and brief you about my place and share details. I have 7 cottages and in each 4 guests can be accommodated comfortably.
Village paradise, get into a world of unmatched opulence and rejuvenate yourself. Just 4.2 Km away from Gokarna nestled in a coconut grove on the pristine Riya beach. Spend time relaxing and smelling the sea, feel the breeze and listen to the roar of the ocean waves to create a scene of peace and calm. Stay in our spacious and beautifully designed cottage and enjoy the evening watching the twilight sunset on the beach.
We offer seven beautiful cottages with attached baths for beach lovers & peace seeking travellers alike. If you want have privacy and enjoy the beach with loved one, as on a private beach, you are in a perfect place. Also it’s a paradise for bay watchers. You will hardly find people around. Of-course we are secluded but attached to nature, hence you will enjoy the privilege of being in a private beach. The minimum occupancy is 2 guests and max. 4 per cottage.
There are no Sign boards just follow the location map it works perfect. The last stretch of 250-300 meters is a mud road like a ride on a camel back. The both sides of the road is covered with nature built wall which welcome you with a smile. Keep your eyes wide open you may spot Peacocks dancing around. During Monsoon its little challenging to ride this camel back as the water clogs on this stretch. If you are very much attached to your car and don’t want it to get dirty and kind of city person think once again. Getting to my place at night might scare you a bit so try to reach before dawn. Keep my staff informed about your arrival time, they will assist you. You have to walk 2 to 3 min from the parking lot on sand to reach the cottage (I love calling this an automatic tread mill).If you have any health issue that prevents you from walking short distances approx. 120 meters on sand, this isn't the place for you. And if you are city person there is nothing here for you. You will be bored from surroundings and regret on your decision of coming here. By the same token if you love grandeur of nature La Mer, the beach and don't want to spend too much money then you will be in love at first sight. There are no shops and restaurants around but aren't you sick of them?
Anyway these cottages Medium and with attach clean baths, each cottage got king size bed on ground floor and two guests sleeping arrangements at the Mezzanine floor. Also this is not the place where you want to measure the size of the cottage but vastness of outside beauty. Also each bath got shower with low pressure, no geyser heated water, and you will get hot water on request. This place is zero star, to me this star ranking system is good for cities. In old days there were no star system and people live quite nice lives in villages compare to artificial life we are pushing ourselves into in cities. This is back to basics concept and coming here you are going back in time. Jack London, Shakespeare and list goes on who lived in simple cabins or cottages, which probably helped sharpened their brains. Anyway bathrooms got combination tiles, Bath tub and high end plumbing fittings, wash basins.
When you come here you will see what I mean. As far this place goes you can go on mild to moderate beach walk to Gokarna main beach may be about 3-3.5 Km. I bet you will love it in the early morning or at the evening. Riya beach is pristine and welcoming so take a dip and if you are lucky you may catch fish too. I know everyone loves water so don’t take risk of getting deep in to the sea, there’s no life guard around and you are on your own risk.
This place is little bit off the beaten path and very few people live around this area. If you like inner cities person then again this is not the place for you. I don't want to discourage you not to come but same time bit concern if this is a good match for you. Since there are no shops all around here so you can do all the shopping in Gokarna and stack up. Mostly it’s the caretakers who goes and do shopping may do so for you at Gokarna market and pass on the bills to you of whatever price they paid plus small profit on top, but still your meals price is not that high. For couple having buffet Breakfast, it will cost 300 Rs a day, for single person 150 Rs a day, Its quite a task for them to bringing groceries, gas etc. I am personally hardly involved in doing anything around here other than to communicate with you and pass your phone number to Viraj the manager, Rajesh my kitchen head, Ramakanth the cook. Staying here is brilliant idea to contribute to poor, simultaneously you get your pleasure of staying in beautiful setting with awesome beauty around, and my staffs are localities from rural background not good at academics but behaves very well. They know kannada and hindi as well can communicate in broken English but still you will love them coz of their simplicity and down to earth nature. I trained them to my best so kindly bear with them and don’t be rude they are from village sometimes you may have to repeat what you said.
You go to bed with cool breeze of the sea and wake up to the roar of the shore. When you leave you can be proud of contributing towards not so privileged life people in this village. Staying here American novelist John Muir's saying applies “A day spent in a nature is a day added to your life". If you have more than a back pack or carry ones then guys will be courteous enough to give you helping hand. I am sure they will appreciate tips too. People around are very humble and down to earth. Try not arrive very late at night but if you do please inform Viraj. Bring your beer or hard liquor, books you always wanted to read. Please do not littler, have respect for next visitors and environment around. Since it is such a small place let’s keep it clean
Anyway morning and evenings are very pleasant. Do not wonder off during afternoon, sun can be strong. Most of the time I am not here but just in case if I am here and I happen to be driving to Kokarna then I would love to give you ride from Bangalore to Gokarna. Also if you need help with pick up and drop off there is a real nice guy who got transportation and he can take you around sightseeing can also rent a bike etc for fair price also pick you up from train station or airport and drop you back. His name Aziz and you can ask me his cell number.
As the name resembles "VILLAGE PARADISE BEACH FRONT"
this Paradise is surrounded by coconut groves, watermelon plantation, pineapple farming and lot of cultivation around,
The small village close by, and the residents most of them farmers are welcoming and socialize with everyone.
The Riya Beach of-course welcomes every one and the blend of all these thing gives complete meaning to Village paradise beach front.
