An acre of Joy & Happiness is what's in store when you arrive here. The Romance of River in the East to the Serenity of the Sea in the West there is abundance of Peace. A km to the North, you'll find Padubidri beach & 500 mts to the South you'll find yourself in a blue flag beach (also this place is an Estuary). If not content with both of these, you'll have a private beach of your own just a few yards away from IRAA. The Kaamini river flowing behind is in itself a tour of ecstasy if you're into nature (boat ride is available). Speaking of food, the local caretakers here make many varieties of food, seafood being the prominent amongst them. From bewitching breakfast to lovely lunch to delicious dinner, you order it & ye shall receive. The owners & the care takers both are very polite and respectful. Additional fun: 1. You can create your own bonfire very next to your frontyard. 2. Fan of barbeque grilling? They got you covered. *Want more details on food or anything for that matter?...

Such a rare find this place is .. so serene and beautiful.. nestled right between the beach on one side and lovely backwaters on the other side. The cottages and kitchen are equipped with all basic necessities, was just apt for us 2 families with small children. We could prepare basic meals as well especially for kids. Highlight of the trip was Kayaking in the backwaters, we went up to the estuary connecting backwaters to the sea. It was such a great experience. The caretakers Kaushala & Ramesh Anna were real nice folks, made it a comfortable stay for us. Would love to visit again soon ! :)
