My stay at Shalong Villa with Pema's family was very pleasant - the room was wonderfully spacious, the private balcony a joy, and the service attentive. Everything was clean and prepared thoughtfully, and WiFi connection is also available (a big plus when travelling in India). This was one of the nicest places I've stayed at during all my travels in India. Kalimpong would offer a beautiful view of the Himalayas, however, during my stay it was too foggy (even early in the morning) for them to be seen. The tourist sight-seeing spots in town are mostly monasteries with elaborate and beautiful paintings. It was a shame for me, however, that I couldn't find someone who spoke adequate English to explain the concepts behind all that I was seeing. Pema's family let me use their driver's services for a fee for sightseeing.
As the Villa is a ways from the town of Kalimpong itself, be prepared for some extra charges to go to the Villa once arriving in town. Pema herself does not actually stay in Kalimpong most of the time, but her family speaks fluent English and is exceedingly warm and friendly. They were very helpful in assisting me plan my travels to Sikkim after leaving Kalimpong. I greatly enjoyed my stay and would recommend it for a longer stay as well. Meals, however, are charged separately and are not included in the AIRBNB booking price.
I made the initial booking for 2 days, but decided to extend my stay with Pema's family for 9 days. My room had a clear view of the mountains. The home cooked meal was simple but tasty with local flavor. I could not expect anything more in the area of hospitality from the whole host family.
