Airbnb has marked its presence in over 190 countries and India is no different. They have lakhs and lakhs of homes that range from being affordable to absolutely gorgeous ones that deserve a splurge. Notice I’m using the word home? Because that’s exactly how you will feel while staying at one of these locations! Here is a specially curated list of the coolest Airbnb homes in India.

1. Bamboo Cottage – Kerala

Hidden in the lush green cover, some 25 kms south from Kochi, is this quaint teakwood cottage that is a perfect option for those who are looking for some peace. It is situated fairly close to an ayurveda centre, so the massages are an added bonus. Also, the host is an absolute darling! Sabine will make sure you have a wonderful stay at her guesthouse.

2. Horn Billhouse – Goa

Next time you are in Goa, try this funky house that has been built on rocks. Actually, on rocks! In the master bedroom, there are two beds, one on a slightly elevated level for the kids. The best part is not even this — it is the fact that the ceiling and around 70% of the walls are made up of glass. So you get the illusion of sleeping in the open without actually having to sleep outside. How cool is that!
