Vacations are beautiful and something all of us daydream of all day at work. But booking online is always worrisome as you never know how strict the hotel policies might be or how little the hotel facilities might be. To avoid this, more and more people are opting for homestays. A peaceful stay in a home away from home that provides you with the perfect place to get away from your everyday life without leaving out the little pleasures you love, like your special chai and Maggi recipe. Most hotels give you a sofa lounge only on taking expensive suites, and terrace lounges or balconies are really just public spaces. But homestays provide you with all these spaces as your private spaces just for you to enjoy. So instead of travelling long distances just to get to a quiet place to rest, why don’t you cut your travel time and choose to stay at our beautiful list of Delhi homes that can take you away from your worries in just a click?
1. Lake View Luxury
We all love plush interiors consisting of perfectly stocked bookshelves, sofas with fluffed pillows, glass doors and windows with a view of old monuments, cute wardrobes and a terrace lounge. The whole loft vibe with modern interiors is very NYC-chic but kinda hard to achieve in our old world charm apartments. But just because we don’t have them at our places, doesn't mean we can't enjoy these kinds of pleasures. This beautiful luxury apartment is modern, chic, and charming and the terrace lounge fully equipped with furniture is to die for. This one comes approved by the Founder of Airbnb itself so you can go stay here without needing assurance of quality.

5. 3BD WOW
We all Delhiites love Delhi and don’t want to imagine living in another Indian city but we can’t deny that in most places we hardly have any greens here and at times we all dream about a greenhouse filled with plants where we can sip tea on our own cute plant-filled balconies (that we didn't work hard to maintain as the struggle of keeping a plant alive is so so real). For all those times, or simply for times where you would enjoy living with your friends without parental supervision, opt to stay here in GK-II at this beautifully furnished 3 bedroom house that comes fitted with all amenities needed. For an even more relaxing experience, the stay gives you an option to hire a cook as well.

The Barn creates the dreamiest environment by combining a romantic farm life vibe with the charm of horses.
