The Most Gorgeously Furnished Indian Homestays on AirBnB

NOBODY is falling for the glamour of hotel rooms anymore. The global lifestyle of today’s millennials has paved the way for concepts of homes away from home, which makes perfect sense, what with travel becoming so much more than just about vacation. Here is a list of the most luxuriously furnished dream home-stays around the country listed on AirBnB.
