Homestay concept is only a few years old in India. A house inside a farm or plantation converted and open for tourist accommodation is called homestay. These houses are converted by people who live there. A portion of the heritage house, hill cottage or a villa is redone for serving visitors. Guests can enjoy the homely atmosphere and get a chance to live like a local eating local cuisines. Earlier to tourism tag for homestays, they were largely used for cultural exchange between countries.
Guidelines set by Government of India is that a homestay can have 5 Rooms at the maximum. Hosts earned an income by renting out their rooms with packages of food and accommodation to guests. Visitors pay an agreed rate for the host (listed on Travel Malnad) to avail hospitality services during their stay. If the guests are interested they can even participate in day to day estate and plantation farming works.
