Pure Vegetarian homestays in Karnataka

Whenever I start searching for homestays, I look for the homestays which serve only vegetarian food. It is not easy to get a list of such homestays. I have to literally go through reviews of every homestay (barring a few) and find out if they serve only veg or not. With that exercise, I end up having a list of such homestays in Karnataka. That prompted me to create a list and post it in my blog so that it can help anyone looking for only-veg homestays.

Of course, before you go through this list, let me call out a few disclaimers.
  • This list is not complete, it will be updated as and when I get information
  • If you know any homestay which is not listed here, kindly share it in comments section and I'll add it 
  • The homestays listed here "specified" or reviews suggested that they serve only veg food at the time of my research. If they have changed that policy and you find that they are no more serving only veg, let me know through comments and I'll update my list
  • I'm not endorsing any of these homestays. It should be seen only as a compiled list
  • If I've visited any of these places and I've posted my review, I'll provide the link
  • It is at the discretion of the readers to check reviews of homestays and decide
Here is the list ordered by districts (updated as on 25-Apr-2023).

Stream of joy kukke
Pragati homestay kumta

You can add- Mathuga near talaguppa

Suresh said...


I could not find Stream of Joy in Kukke. If you have a link, please provide in the comments.

I have already added Pragati.

For Mathuga, the reviews in Google Map says even though they serve only Veg, one can order non-veg from outside and eat. Hence, I'm not adding this to the list.

Thank you Suresh for your efforts 🙏. This is very helpful. Do you know which of these is ideal for workation? Any of these have decent wifi for uninterrupted mobile network atleast for remote working? Thanks

Suresh said...

@Unknown, I don't know about workation. When I was in Gundimane, the owner mentioned about a couple staying there for a few weeks during covid times and worked from there. Do note that, in some of these areas you may not get a strong Airtel or Vodafone network. BSNL or Jio may work. I would suggest to contact the owner.

@a disappointed parent, I have added Stream of Joy.
