Pegshomestay, an ideally located homestay is situated in Upper Sichey which is just 5 minutes away from Gangtok town by taxi. Traveling to a local tourist destination for sightseeing will be very convenient as taxi...
I’d like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly recommend this home stay to even the most discerning traveller. Background about my trip: I booked the place for 8 days as I intended to work (work from home can be a boon at times) during the week and travel during the weekends. Mr. Phurbha was even kind enough to go the rooms and check for mobile reception (upon my request, as I need uninterrupted internet to work).
About the rooms:
The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds are soft and springy and I was provided dry cleaned quilts in addition to what was available. The bathroom is clean and has a modern decor to it. The kitchen is always kept clean for guest use. Mr Phurbha provided authentic Sikkimese meals cooked from local organic produce upon my request.
The host also planned my travel to Nathula Pass, Lachen and Lachung and provided excellent cab facilities to these stations as well as accommodation at both Lachen and Lachung. I didn’t have to lift a finger.
I’m glad I booked this place, the host experience was as important as my trip. I would gladly recommend it.
I stayed at Pegs Home Stay for a few days when I in Gangtok with my mom. The place is located a few minutes away from the market/town. You can get taxis to most places from the taxi stand across here. The place is nice and clean with about five rooms and a common kitchen that can be used by the guests. I particularly liked the murals done in the rooms and the common areas! It gave a nice feel to the place. The room we stayed in was adequately equipped and had a clean bathroom too( must for me).
Peggyla and her staff provided us with a great spread for breakfast which exceeded my expectations for a homestay. Personally too, Peggyla helped us a lot figuring out plans to go sightseeing and arrange for drivers to take us around. She was sweet enough to take us to a nearby monastery and also go watch the sunrise over Kanchenjunga at 5 am,which was one of the highlights of our Sikkim trip.
Both my mom and I had a great time with the host and in the place, which we would definitely recommend to other travelers to Gangtok, who want a homely stay away from home. Peggyla was an excellent host who took great care of us. I wish her all the best and look forward to visiting Pegs Home Stay someday soon.
Sonam and her family leaves no stone unturned, takes all efforts to make you feel comfortable and right at home. Have been using Airbnb from a long time but this is definitely the best stay so far. Five stars to all parameters you look for in a stay.
Sonam arranged for complimentary anniversary cake for my parents and they were so overwhelmed with the surprise and respect they got from them.Talk over tea, breakfast and other times were so comforting with other homestay mates, my parents had a very pleasant stay that ended up making more friends with invitation to visit their hometowns. Glad I chose Sonam Pegs Homestay for them.
Way to go Sonam.
More than saying that your stay is value for money, I’d want to say glad to have known you!
Soman is really super host, very professional and caring. Right from
arranging parking for our bikes when we arrived till arranging hot tea in the morning at 6 am when we were leaving she took care of everything. House and rooms are extremely clean and with all the necessary amenities, especially bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious which was served on the top floor of the house from where one can see beautiful Gangtok. Hope to visit her sometime again. ”
First of all, Sonam and her family is awesome human being and super host. She planned all my itinerary and always keep in touch while we are there and even after we left. The apartment has five rooms and luckily we got the hole apartment as there was no one else. Place is sparkling clean and excellent interior. Housekeeping is every day. The breakfast she and her mother cooked is yummy and served with lot of loves. My only problem was parking for my SUV. The parking place is a bit narrow but Sonam and her father helped me every to park .
I will definitely visit again and recommend this place.
We booked Sonam's place for 3 days on our Gangtok trip.
Our stay was super comfortable. The room was spacious and very very clean. We had access to a fully equipped kitchen with basic groceries & veggies already stocked up. We cooked dinner and it was very memorable. Also everyday bottles of drinking water would be refilled by the caretaker, which saved us from buying bottled water (and creating plastic trash) !
There is a taxi stand right opposite to the property so we don't have to walk around with luggage looking for a cab!
And most importantly Sonam is a very helpful amd kind host! Provided with lots of information and local tips which made our trip very memorable. Would definitely recommend this place!
