“Loved staying at this home away from home”
After a much exhilarating ride all the way from my hometown which is like about 1700 kilometers away from McLeod Ganj, we wanted a place to crash at which should to say be good enough to relax our butts. Our booking at Homestay was a 11th hour decision. It looked decent and cozy in the pictures.
Reaching Homestay almost in the middle of the night, the owners from the very first minute made us feel that we were meeting a family we've known since ages and not some inn keepers and that we should feel at home.
Sahil and Bhushan, the two lovely chaps who run this place have stories to tell, advises to share and are absolutely fantastic at cooking leaving you smacking your lips and if you are an Asian who doesn't mind getting the fingers messy, then it will be finger lickin' good :P
Their mother will treat you with some good home cooked breakfast every morning that is nothing short of sumptuous and delicious.
We stayed in one of their cottages that was appropriately small and cozy. The bathroom was clean when we came in and had a small geyser to suit to our needs for warm water to bathe with. You get a nice adequately spaced closet to keep your things in. The bed was comfortable and the chilly nights are saved by the soft quilts they give you. The cottage opened to a picturesque view of the valley and the Himalayas. You might want to sit outside your cottage in the morning with a hot cup of coffee in hand and enjoy the view and the brew.
Overall, my stay was fantastic and would definitely recommend lodging here.
Me and my family were planning our holidays from last one month , finally selected Mcleodganj Homestay through tripadvisor where travelers had given wonderful reviews.....

My sister and I recently visited McLeod Ganj and had to good fortune to have stayed with the very gracious Sarin family at the Flourishing Flora homestay. For us, this place had great appeal; simple, clean and cozy lodgings nestled mountainside on Dharamkot Road, we enjoyed the walk to and from the town square. The Sarin brothers were extremely courteous and helpful, while their mother Nisha's cooking was delicious! It was delightful to sit in the little outdoor dining area and take in the view of the mountains amid the flowers and plants dotted about the property. I found the location a calm respite from the bustling town square - and the nightly performances at TIPA just up the road provided a pleasant soundtrack for our adventure! :-)

"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)
