We stayed in Makkithitta for two nights as part of our 3 night visit to Sakleshpur. It was a perfect holiday weekend for us, two nights in a beautiful homestay (Makkithitta) combined with the thrill of staying in a resort bordering the forest (Rottikallu) the other night! Makithitta is blessed with an out of the world location. The bungalow is perched on the slopes of rolling hills on three sides draped in a mix of coffee estate and wilderness. Spread out on the other side, at the front of the bungalow are the cultivated plains. A short distance away, there is a small rivulet that gives birth to the beautiful Magajahalli waterfall. We were told we can walk to the waterfall, but we went there in a jeep combining the ride to the Bettada Bhairaveshwara temple. The waterfall is easy to get into, but the temple was closed, through we were there by 10.30am. Coming to the homestay experience, we chose this homestay for it is purely vegetarian, and the food was just awesome. A large buffet spread, unlimited evening snacks, local delicacies - a culinary experience to cherish! We don't eat garlic, so the food was customized for us when we informed after the first meal. Mr. Tejpal and Mrs. Saroja cared for us as if we were part of their family, and there was plenty of affable talk and help on hand. Tejpal uncle also entertained us with his magic card tricks and they were really good tricks too! The only downside is rooms that are not very spacious, but the hospitality including bed coffee, beautiful balconies and common areas compensate for it adequately! My daughter especially liked the rain dance! The morning walk led us to the nearby houses lining the estates where we were welcomed warmly and resulted in a rich harvest of jackfruit and gaint lemons to take back home! Thanks to Saroja aunty for her tips on spice shopping in Sadguru shop in Sakleshpur. On her advice, we also visited two beautiful temples: group of 11th Century Hoysala temples at Angadi, the birthplace of Hoysalas, and the Adi Subramanya temple on the lovely banks of Hemavathi at Chinniga. The river was so serene and easy that we could get into it and walk for quite a distance. The kids are sure to love this experience! Also, her directions to the rice shopping next to Post Office actually led us to discover a super small shop just adjacent to the Post Office where we got heavenly, fresh Herele fruit juice (a kind of citrus fruit normally used for pickles) to add to an all round experience!

Rooms, toilets are clean and tidy. Regular maintenance done. 24x7 hot water supply. Any time coffee/tea. Vegetarian food only (onion, garlic added to few items) Indoor and outdoor activities available. The owners take care of tourists as though they are their children.

This homestay is awesome. I have been served with the best food ever..I have no words to tell about the homestay. It's just THE BEST. I visited the homestay with my family and friends. We stayed there for 2 days , there is a waterfall nearby . There are 2 big muddy puddle. In one of them we can play volleyball. There is a zipline , in which we can sit and fall into the puddle. There are no comments about the food. Overall they deserve an EXCELLENT

We stayed for two days in the mid of greenery. A great place to relax and closer to Bettada Byradeshwara temple, Manjarabad fort and belur/halebedu. Hospitality is too gud with Tejpal uncle and Saroja aunty to guide you and serve the best Malnad food. I'm sure you will not ask for non-veg with the quality of veg food been served at the homestay.However they do arrange non-veg food on demand. Good place to go with the family and friends. Weather was very pleasant with misty mountains around ...
