The studio apartment is a solitary, private haven set far away from the road on a mountain slope. One has to walk down 4 flights of stairs to reach the house, so it is best suited for reasonably fit people. It is ideal for those who want luxury while in the lap of nature.
The kitchen has a cooking stove, basic utensils, and a small fridge. Laundry and catering services are available.
The Birdsong Home overlooks a mountain range where you can enjoy spectacular views from the outdoor wooden deck and dining area. Spread out over 3 acres of orange orchards, we offer free wifi and guided treks to nearby attractions.
The studio apartment has a large bed and an en-suite bathroom. It has an open plan kitchen, living room and deck. The kitchen has a small fridge attached. You are welcome to cook, or ask for local food (momos, Indian thalis, etc).
The house is a 10-min drive from the main town of Mirik. Taxis are readily available through the day, and charge Rs. 150 to go to the town. Mirik town is a 40-min uphill walk through a lovely green forest and village area.
A large Buddhist monastery overlooks the town of Mirik, which has pine trees around a lake. The Kunchunjunga range and K2 can be seen from the town of Mirik, and there are picnic spots from where you can see the sunset over the plains.

We will make sure you have the most comfortable stay possible. We look out for our guests and make sure they have everything they could possibly want - privacy, security, and local know-how. We are happy to arrange for guides to the local monastery and to other sights.
The house must be left in the same condition you found it in. No smoking inside the house and no guests other than those staying there.
My mother (Alka) and I (Minal) started hosting on Airbnb in Kolkata about three years ago, and have never looked back since! We have had such positive experiences with our guests, some of whom have become lifelong friends. We believe in making you feel at home when you are with us, and to treat our homes as if they were your own. My family and I have used Airbnb extensively while traveling and we love meeting people from all over the world.
I have a few listings up - I live in the quiet and breezy apartment in Ballygunge, while my parents live in the city centre villa. At my house, I cook (non-veg is allowed) but I don't have full time help - so guests have to clean up! At my parents' house, you will get all the luxurious services you would expect from a hotel - from laundry to hot, fresh meals (vegetarian) and breakfast with a bowl of fresh cut fruit. The Birdsong Home is a private getaway in Himalyan mountains, with serviced apartments in a remote, gorgeous location.
Do contact me for any questions. Look forward to meeting you!
