“Homestay at private bungalow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 August 2014
1) Mcleodganj Homestay is located at flourishing flora on dharamkot road, exactly 800 meters or 7-8 minute walk from Mcleodganj Main square. I stayed here with a group second time. This is a private bungalow suitable for travelers who want to stay in homestay.
This property is designed in excellent way that although being a homestay your privacy is maintained. Since each room having independent entrance and with a private bathrooms. The feel of the location IS SUCH THAT IT TAKES AWAY ALL THE MENTAL STRESS THAT IS THERE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE AND PRESENTS A PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE DUE TO THE VIEW OF THE VALLEY AND THE PINE TREES THAT SURROUND YOU.
On my arrival owners son sahil and kulbhushan welcomed us. And served delicious breakfast cooked by aunty Nisha . After having the breakfast we kept sitting on the wooden deck which is so nicely decorated with different plants and flowers, you never feel like leaving the table.
Property is small with simplicity embedded and cleanliness is maintained very well. I never got to know that when did these 3 days went away. I will definitely come back.

"I was traveling alone to Mcleodganj from Shillong and was really unsure of how to get a comfortable and safe place to stay.
I was so glad to come across Flourishing Flora through Tripadvisor, that i didnt have a second thought but called up Anil Sarin if I could be accommodated there. Luckily I was and when I reached this beautiful place I was completely mesmerized by the serenity of the place and the beauty of the surroundings. This homestay is infact the best here and the room that i chose was this wooden cabin and it was so so cozy and warm, very comfortable and makes you feel at home. If one is looking for a peaceful retreat, then this room is the best. The breakfast was awesome.
One should not miss the banana pancakes. Dinner is superb and relishing. Last but not the least, the hosts were very hospitable. Each and every one of you, Anil, Nisha, Sahil and Bhushan, thank you so much for your warm hospitality.
I indeed had the best stay and i do wish to come back someday and stay there another time." ( As Sent on Trip Advisor)

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy B&B. The Sarins were always very helpful and gracious. The breakfasts were great every morning, served hot and at whatever time was comfortable for us (usually around 10am as we were traveling with 3 teenagers). We all loved sitting on the patio each morning in the sun. The air was cold in February but the rooms had space heaters (for use from 8pm to 8am for an extra 100Rp per night) and extra blankets. We had roast chicken in front of a wood fire one evening and would have eaten more evening meals at the home stay had the evening temps been a little warmer. Happily, there are no shortage of great restaurants in Mcleodganj.
The wifi was slow but reception was good.
The walk to town took only about 10 minutes and was quiet, scenic and very enjoyable (though steep) and we did it several times each day. We were in Mcleodganj for a week and still didn't have time to explore all the local sites, restaurants and shopping.
Flourishing Flora was a perfect place for our family and we would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a clean, comfortable, well located authentically Indian experience.
