We wanted to visit Orccha, famous for its 17th-century monuments and rural setting. We found out about Orccha Homestay and booked four nights (we wanted to stay five, but had difficulty with our train booking so couldn't stay the fifth night). This was not my...More

What a wonderful review - I'm sure it will help our home-stay families get more guests and continue to improve their homes and living standards besides enjoying time with visitors like you. Tourism is about discovering different ways of life - it was true for...More

We stayed two nights with Mukesh and family. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable in a lovely, peaceful setting. We enjoyed the short walk to Orchha and the interesting sights there. However, rather than being involved with the family, we were strictly observers, never invited...More

We have taken a while to respond to your feedback because we wanted to take steps to remedy the situation at Mukesh's. This has always been a very friendly and welcoming homestay but the recent demise of Kamala, the grandmother and departure of the eldest...More

Very clean and peaceful place of Lord Shriram. Famous for Ram Raja temple. Betwa river flowing with clean water. Very economy stay and food. Raj mahal Jahangir mahal top view is charming. Must visit on the way to Khujrao.More

Yes, Orchha is a 'must visit' and the home-stay gives you a chance to discover it's history as well as it's present. The Ramraja temple is very popular with Hindu pilgrims and gives one an insight into the importance of religion in people's lives. Hope...More

About
Description
Stay with a local family & discover India differently. Orchha is a great place to relax in and discover 17th century monuments. We offer clean and comfortable rooms, furnished in traditional style, built in the More courtyard of the host family. The rooms have fans and mosquito nets and the bathroom & toilets are ecological, and are shared with the family. The family provides home-cooked food and kids have plenty of playmates. The home-stay is a 25 minute walk from the palace. This is a social enterprise allowing poor families to benefit from tourism and visitors to see how most families in India live today. We received the Indian Responsible Tourism Gold Award 2018 for the Best Community-run Homestay. Call it responsible tourism or eco tourism - your visit will improve the lives of many and be an experience to remember. One of our six host families will be happy to welcome you. Less
