A family holiday is the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy special memories with the entire family. Homestays are the ideal choice for families travelling with children as they offer many benefits to enhance your trip and make it a holiday you won’t forget.
Why a homestay
Homestays by definition are run by families or couples and most hosts either have young children or have children who have since moved out. They often have many indoor games, kids rooms and dedicated play areas. Such facilities can be found in several homestays like Bel Home and The Homestead, which also has a tree house and sand pit for children. You will find that homestay hosts have a lot of affection for children and will go out of their way to ensure they have a memorable stay.
Variety of options
From homestays like Arco Iris, Balunda house, Akkarakalam Memoirs and Surya kunj that promote cultural interaction in children to those like Olaulim Backyard which provide exciting physical activities; there are all kinds of homestays in the Mahindra family. Children in these homestays don’t just accompany their parents, they have rich and memorable holidays of their own.
Range of experiences
Many homestays have sprawling gardens and terraces. Fun barbecues and bonfires are often organised by hosts and always go down well with younger visitors.
For children who love to swim great options are The Homestead, Surya kunj, Palm Court Jaipur and Olaulim Backyard. You will also find that many homestays have friendly pets such as dogs, ponies, birds and even donkeys on their ground. Nandan Farms can arrange bullock cart rides across the countryside for the whole family.
