Your search for an idyllic vacation ends at Mira's Home!
Come experience the grandeur and beauty of the Himalayas from your very own private home in the mountains. Located a mere hour and a half (1.5 hours) from the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, Mira's home can be your secluded address while you immerse yourself in nature and discover the peace that comes with being attuned to yourself. Your home can also be an ideal setting for savoring the views of the luscious Himalayan valleys back dropped by the snow-capped peaks of some of the highest mountains in the world, or serving as your base station while you discover the amazing locale through short hiking or cycling trips.
Away from unwelcome annoyances like the noise from motor vehicles or incessant music from wedding parties next door, Mira's Home is one of very few drivable properties in Nepal that will let you enjoy the pristine sounds of nature (Yes! even during the day) and truly experience the Himalayan lifestyle. And all this, without having to leave behind any of the creature comforts of home like your coffee machine, warm PJs, heaters and that comfortable fat mattress.
We only rent the place out to one party at any time and give our patrons the option to remain undisturbed at the home for as long as they want to further complete your 'home' experience. You can also use our 4 acre (15,000 sq. meters) property that surrounds the house to grill, play outdoor games, mediate, pitch a tent with the kids or simply sit back and relax.
