What else you want when you don’t have to get acquainted to the scheduled food in a sterilized hotel while you are travelling. The one thing that you crave for when you are out somewhere is the homely touch which would no more make the place unknown or new for you. In this incredible India you can make each and every travel wonderful and exciting when you experience these alternate stays to relax and enjoy the serene beauty of nature. When you think it’s difficult for you to adjust with a new environment these alternate stays help to come close to different people, land, and their culture and provide the guest to experience a complete different way of living.

Funstay just had the same thought when it came up with the concept of an online portal/marketplace which offers unique boutique stay options like Homestays, Villas, Cottages, Tree Houses, and House Boats etc to help each person encounter a unique travel experience. It offers great fun by the virtue of its stay’s location and through its unique service offerings. Nitin Agrawal, one of the founding members of Funstay says, “The journey of Funstay is not that of a typical business, rather it has been the journeys of five friends with one common passion i.e. travel. Ever since we completed our education, each of us have traveled widely both within the country and abroad. During these travel experiences, many a times we had stayed with locals at their homes, stayed in a village hut or in a cottage between vast coffee plantations. We realized that the travel experience becomes exponentially richer and memorable when one can understand and get involved in the local heritage”

Funstay makes sure nothing stays out, thus offers services, which would also be pet-friendly or flexible check-in check-out time. They do understand what a pet goes through when the family is out for a vacation. With fun filled activities such as bonfire and other recreational activities it becomes a comprehensive platform offering you a memorable experience. And for all this you don’t have to be a regular camera and a bottle twirling tourist, you just need to be at home, eat local homemade food and haggle like a pro at a local market. And oh, eat from the fridge at untimely hours. Hope you guys understand these are not mandatory; it’s completely up to you how you want to spend your days. Funstay realizes and values your privacy thus it assures that your vacation is truly an experience.
