Dear Traveler
Greetings from The Riverside!!!
Someone said it's the journey that's important and not the destination. The world is a beautiful place and I appreciate the fact that you are an avid traveler.
Since you are on this page , I am sure you are considering travel to the beautiful city of Udupi and some scenic places around. It's an excellent choice and I happy that you are considering my town among the options available. We would like to be a part of journey through The Riverside.


Frankly speaking; there is no place in Udupi like The Riverside.
Everyone out there offer a house ; what we offer is an experience unlike any other out there . The home is just a part of your stay as there are so many things you can do and explore .

The Riverside is conveniently located just 15 minutes away by road from Udupi and is adjacent to the national highway . We offer an escape place which is away from the hustle and bustle of city life and yes we offer a serine and tranquil surrounding which might help to rejuvenate / recoup onself to take on the next battle out there .

The Riverside home consists of a large living room ; a fully furnished and equipped kitchen; a bedroom with a queen sized bed .

We offer a place surrounded by acres of coconut grove ; a breathtaking panoramic view of the river Suvarna and some really scenic places to explore near by (by Boat) . If you donot wish to travel, then just sit back and cuddle up at the property and unwind in the majestic surrounding.

The space is suitable for dreamers (to reflect; reset and recreate); couples on a romantic getaway ; young travelers ; the thinkers ; the liberals ; the corporate traveler looking for a break and of course the genuine movie buffs; as we offer a private secluded sanctuary; which is far but yet not too far ; a movie collection to die for and much much more.

It's a no frills home which we had built as a weekend retreat ; however we are sharing it with like minded people who are on a quest to explore places beyond the horizons of 2 BHK pigeon holes that we live in.


There are many wonderful places which you can explore near to The Riverside; namely the island opposite; hanging bridge; a lovely scenic boat ride to the beach passing some really beautiful islands on the way.

If you are into fishing; you can definitely consider it but do bring your gear

What my guest can get access to is the entire property; an DVD collection of over 300 movies ; All modern amenities like furnished kitchen; cable TV ; basic provisions for cooking; Queen sized bed; Hot water to name a few

We have not installed an AC & laundry facility is not available


Myself, my mom and my wife are a team

I take care of the communications and mom takes care of the logistics

My mom who would be present and would be assisting you at every step to make your stay comfortable and your visit a real pleasure

I am a phone call away and would be interacting on a regular basis to help you understand the place and explore the surroundings.

But remember; our level of interaction depends on the guest preference ; some have been talkative to the core and some have been silent recluse. Ultimately it's your choice and we respect that.


The kitchen is fully furnished and equipped with all groceries, but cooking would be your prerogative
Guests are requested not to venture into the waters if you are not a certified swimmer as the water current varies depending on the tide

The Riverside stands upto its name. My vocabulary fails me to describe this place and the hospitality. You must get first hand exposure and I am sure you would be amazed too. The serenity of this place would bring out the creative in you. This place would introduce you to the artist, poet, writer, photographer, musician concealed within. Even a lot of what I am writing in this review comes out naturally as a result of my experience. Definitely inspiring. Aldo and his mom are very humble but the place exceeds expectations. I happened to spend only one day not knowing what to expect. At the time of checkout I felt, I should have had a much more relaxed itinerary so that I could absorb more of what the Riverside had to offer. Aldo's place in itself should fill the itinerary. The experience that has been created is unique and at such a competitive price, it is actually a steal. In the midst of nature, but not too remote. Feels rural, but offers modern amenities. The attention to detail in the construction, decor, furnishing and the facilities show that Aldo wants to treat others the way he wants to be treated - first class of course. The communication about the stay, before, during and after was timely, relevant. Just what you need to know at the right moment. At no time you would feel bored or left with nothing to do. In fact doing nothing is also something that the Riverside will teach you. The Riverside is not for the hurried package tour type traveler, the thrifty backpacker or a splurging business traveler. Rather it is for those who want to press the pause button on time and savor the moment. It is for the creative ones who are looking for that bit of inspiration for their next master piece. It is for those who think they are not creative and after spending a few days here, come out transformed. The Riverside also in a way heals. You get to meet yourself. I sincerely hope that you qualify to cherish a few moments of your life here to appreciate one of nature's best.

Riverside is indeed a slice of heaven. Tucked away in a coconut grove on the banks of river Swarna, this place is a hidden treasure. Maintained lovingly by Also and Mrs.Felcy Lewis, it is a steal and a must have vacation. The one bedroom independent house is very well kept and stocked with all the essentials. TV, DVD player, heater, gas stove & a powerful inverter -- all conspire to keep you planted on the couch. Don't - please do go around. The location and the idyllic setting strikes a perfect balance for the lazy traveller and the "on-the-move" traveller. Udipi, Manipal are very close by. Fantastic beaches like Kaup, Bhengre are an auto-ride away. Fried fish await you! When in doubt, ask Aldo and he shall give you the best advice.

This was my first homestay experience and by far the most beautiful place I have stayed in for my getaways. As the name says, this heavenly abode is just beside the Suvarna river surrounded by coconut groves, lush greenery, peacocks and most importantly PEACE which becomes difficult to experience in our fast paced day to day life. The calmness of the river and the freshness of the wind makes your stay filled with serenity. Every place I visited in Udupi urged me to go back and just relax at this beautiful place. The fresh breeze flowing throughout the day makes you feel you are sitting at some secluded beach and all you can think about is to capture this magical moment forever. You can choose a movie of your choice from the awesome collection of DVDs, read a novel from among those places in the shelf or just sit outside on the lovely benches, the experience of the breeze brushing your face at all times will make you relaxed. Thank you once again Felcy Aunty and Aldo for your gracious hospitality. Your place is a paradise. It is a perfect getaway. It is rightly said by Anita Desai, "wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow". The riverside has become a beautiful chapter in my life even though I stayed here for just two days. Will surely visit again!

A lovely and scenic place by the riverside. It is a beautiful place, very homely and comfortable. The place is about a km inside from the main road. It has a single road leading to the place and easy to access by vehicle. The host Mrs Felcy was just wonderful and made us feel completely at ease. She took care of each and every need. A very special thanks to her for her love and care. Mr Aldo, though from Mumbai was in regular touch and ensuring our stay was going on well. Overall, perfect hosts!! The place is a one bedroom hall cum dining with open kitchen. It comes equipped with fridge, tv, home theatre system, lots of blue ray cds, and a few books. There is a gas and utensils, sufficient to cook a meal. The bedroom has attached bath and one wardrobe. There is a well with motor attached and open car park. Meals have to be cooked by oneself or one go to the nearby place for the same. The place is very close to Udupi, - maybe 5 to 6 kms while the nearest shopping centre is at Santhekatte just about 2 kms away. It is easy to reach the town if you have own transport. Otherwise, there is an autorickshaw (tuk tuk) on call and the charges are quite reasonable. Three people can travel in the autorickshaw comfortably. It is basically a place to chill and relax. There are two cycles for rent, so one could do a bit of cycling. There are many sight seeing spots as well as a few good beaches in and around Udupi for the tourists and many pilgramage centres are nearby for the religiously inclined. There is a boathouse run from specific spots alongside the river. You will have to make your enquiries and book it yourself. If you want to experience the river on a fishing boat, that is possible too. The hosts organised a boat ride to the Hanging Bridge and the Delta Point (where the river meets the sea) and it was a wonderful experience for about 3-4 hours. The boat is small, but was quite safe. The sea offers spectacular sunsets (the sea is in the west) and is a delight for photographers. We stayed here for 12 days, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ideal duration to stay would be three to four days, unless there is a specific plan and itinerary in case you are staying longer. We came back with a lot of memories, and totally refreshed. Great vacation.

Olin mahtavalla kuukauden reissulla Intiassa ja menin viimeiselle viikolleni Aldon vuokraamaan asuntoon. Paikka oli sijainniltaan erinomainen. Asunnon kunto oli kuvien mukainen ja jopa sisätilat odotettua paremmat. Kokonaisuus yllätti positiivisesti. Aldo ja hänen äitinsä vastaanottivat minut hyvin vieraanvaraisesti ja erityisesti hänen äitinsä piti huolen, että minulla on hyvä olla ja kaikki tarvittava. Suosittelen erittäin lämpimästi hänen tarjoamaa majoitusta ja he auttoivat minua kaikessa mihin olisin apua voinut edes kuvitella tarvitsevani. He antoivat hyviä käytännön neuvoja ja kulttuuriin sopeutuminen pohjoismaiselle onnistui hyvin. Paikka on loistava rentouttavaa lomaa hakeville ja omasta rauhasta viihtyville. Ympäristö oli rauhallinen ja kotoisan turvallinen. Oli mahtavaa joka päivä herätä linnunlauluun ja nähdä ikkunasta suoraan auringon valaisema merimaisema. En voisi enempää suositella tätä kohdetta ja tulen varmasti käymään täällä uudelleen! Kiitos Aldo ja Felcy :)

The Riverside; Out of the Ordinary

Hello !!! My name is Aldo Lewis

The story goes like this...
The property has been an ancestral property and has been with us since generations; I grew up in these pristine surroundings and over the years have spend a lot of time here, star gazing and marvel at the picture postcard beauty.

As time flew by, And I embarked on my career and started to climb the corporate ladder and moved on to a different city in search of greener pasture. Life has been kind to me and have been able to achieve significant milestones. In retrospect, We built a cottage in this place as a weekend retreat to spend some time whenever we are in town.
One day as I was sitting at a Mumbai Railway station on my way back home; I watched passengers go by ; some happy to arrive and some lost and confused in the big bad city of Mumbai ; At that moment it dawned on me; why not share the wonderful place we have with like minded travelers and atleast be a part of their journey called life and in the process spread some happiness.

One of my other motives is to put this place on the Map . We have the landscape of Kerala backwaters and a culture on similar lines to Goa; thereby you can call it an amalgamation of both as this place is exactly in between kerala and Goa; So let's see... Time will tell how far I will reach.

Writing about myself , I am an avid traveler and have crisscrossed the Globe ; thereby I do understand the needs of a Traveler ; influence of this can be found in the decor and outlook of this home. Overall We have built this place with an objective to unwind oneself and get ready for the next battle which lies out there.

For anybody out there who is looking for the extraordinary and who chooses my place ; please come with an open mind to absorb what we have to offer . Airbnb to me as a concept is not a hotel room provider; it's more about home sharing; thereby as a guest , you got to be ready to accept what the host has to offer and adhere to some basic house rules and a way of life

Please note ; if you have chosen this place ; It too has chosen you; we do spend a lot of time on selecting the right guest who fits into our kind of outlook ; for every one approval there has been at-least 3 rejections on an average ; considering what we offer , we could have priced it in the Rs.3000/- to Rs.5000/- bracket; but we haven't done it by choice ; somewhere deep down I also believe that capitalism has failed us and the concept of sharing has withered down.

Please donot choose this place if you are coming for one night; you will regret it ; please come with at least a 2 day outlook and with an objective of unwinding oneself

This might sound a little narcissist and boastful, but that's the way it is . We are confident on what we are offering and not in it for only the money ; but hoping to spread some joy and happiness. As the founding fathers of America said in the Declaration of Independence; we all are in Pursuit of Happiness.

If you have read till this sentence, you have come a long way ; so hoping to see you soon

Cheers to life

Aldo Lewis
