The town and surrounding area of Coonoor are something of a hidden gem in India’s Tamil Nadu region, offering beautiful views of a hilly, tea-growing part of the state. Nearby towns such as Ooty, along with the rest of the Nilgiris district, make Coonoor a perfect place to stop if you are looking for an ideal hiking base. Along with the splendid panoramas you will be able to experience, you should check out Sim’s Park, a curated botanic garden with rhododendrons and roses aplenty, and a drive or a hike to the spectacular Catherine Falls will also be in order for the nature lover. The accommodations listed below are some of the region’s finest and will be perfect bases for whatever you want to fit into your itinerary. Keep reading to know more about our top Airbnb vacation rentals in Coonoor, India.
Visitors to this remarkable seven-room getaway will need to be prepared for a strong communal experience: this accommodation is something of a guest house but with a very “family” vibe where people who initially book in for two days end up staying for over a week. The views from the cabins are stunning, and a hiking trip in any direction will end up bringing you face to face with beautiful nature. Grazing bison are frequent visitors to the grounds, and the on-site staff will look after you like family. It’s somewhat remote - you’ll be sent directions when you book - but you can pay for delicious home-cooked meals and profits from the business go to local people in need. It is a wholly worthwhile place to stay when in Coonoor.

Quite simply, this villa is a perfect place to stay with a large travelling party if you’re on the lookout for a bit of relaxation and luxury in the fairly remote Nilgiris region. Four bedrooms, three of which are ensuite, and a well-equipped kitchen are at your disposal in a very modern bungalow much beloved of and by its visitors. While nearby Ooty can become extremely busy and hard to stay in, accommodations like Brooklyn Villa are ideal for travellers who want to experience some peace and quiet - you’ll have the whole villa to yourself. The other hill stations of the Nilgiris region (Ooty and Kotagiri) are close by for a day trip.

This large bungalow is more like a gated villa, with lots of space outdoors to sit out and enjoy the weather and the views. Of particular interest to large groups - the bungalow is equipped for five guests - is the huge kitchen which comes equipped with an induction stove and rice cooker along with all the utensils you could need. It’s also extremely well located, with shops and restaurants within walking distance - though if you need, the host can also arrange for a car with a driver to take you anywhere you need to go.

In keeping with the general vibe of Coonoor, this accommodation is one where you will expect to spend time in the company of your hosts: in this case, a family of Badaga background, the Badagas being an Aboriginal tribe native to the Tamil Nadu region. Their house is as stunning as it is well-furnished, and the focus is on sharing the communal, joyful Badaga culture with visitors. Wholesome food is provided, there are regular visits from extended family members and, when the time comes to check out, you will feel that you have made friends for life. It’s very close to Sim’s Park, too, and the family will advise you on excellent local hikes to take.

If you’re looking for a self-contained accommodation in Coonoor, then this property, fondly called “Euphoria” may be the best choice you could make. Located within a compound on which the owners live, you’ll have your own well-stocked kitchen and a pretty garden area with an unbeatable view of the local tea plantations. With a complimentary breakfast, 24-hour hot water and access to an HD TV along with wireless internet, this is an accommodation that lives up to its name.
Euphoria, room with private garden
This splendid villa, brightly decorated inside and out, is the ideal place for a travelling party of up to 10 visitors and is close enough to the town for easy trips in and out while also being secluded enough to be a peaceful getaway. There are a few house rules - vegan eating rules must be observed in the property, and there is no alcohol allowed in common areas. If you are looking for an accommodation with excellent views of the town, close proximity to all local amenities, and where you can escape the rush hour, then this is an ideal rental.
Nilgiri Comfort Stay
The rooms in this excellently located guesthouse are truly spacious and comfortable, with TVs and drink-making facilities, but the real star of the show is the exterior, which is beautifully decorated and includes an outdoor sitting area with great views of the valleys. The dining area at the property is of a very high level and, while all the local amenities are within easy reach, Westford itself is in a secluded, gated section where you can feel safe, secure, and rested for the duration of your stay.
Come to Coonoor and experience style and glamour in peace
Whether it be a chic bungalow, a communal home, or a stylish gated villa that takes your fancy, make no mistake that Coonoor has options to suit you and that your stay will be marked by style and comfort. This is the ideal place to come if you want to get away from the noise and the pollution of the cities, but not lose any of the luxury - and the views will make it a perfect break for you.
