Top 16 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Coonoor, India - Updated 2021

airbnb Coonoor, India

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.

1. Amazing cabin in the lap of nature (from USD 25)

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.

2. Fully equipped villa (from USD 94)

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.

11. Accommodation where you can experience Badaga life

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.
