  • "Opening doors of a heritage property with a lifetime of memories with family, loved ones and friends is a big milestone and decision for a home owner. However one can do this only if there is a comfort level, similar wavelengths, tastes and sensibilities. All these aspects have earned SaffronStays the privilege of taking our home and opening its doors to likeminded guests who believe in a boutique, homely and culturally rich experience. Tejas and her team also assist in beautifully maintaining the property and helping restore the home to its original glory..."

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

If you think your vacation home is a good fit, leave us a few details in the Contact Us section below and we will call you back. We would then like to evaluate the property, and if it looks like we could be a good fit for each other, we would love to sign you up.

How is Leisure Home Network different from other listing sites?

Well, first, we are not just a listing site. We provide complete hospitality services. We take care of the operations as well as marketing and branding. That means, it is hassle free and stress free maintenance of your home. But more importantly, you get access to leisure homes owned by other like-minded individuals.

How does SaffronStays choose new Leisure Homes?

Properties are evaluated based on a 100-point stringent checklist. Based on gaps identified, home improvements are planned. Only if found suitable, the leisure home is accepted into the Network. SaffronStays oversees home improvements, creates a unique brand identity and launches hospitality operations. Further only a select few are chosen for each destination so that each can be given the attention and marketing effort it deserves.

How much does it cost to be part of this Network?

We believe in a pay as per performance model. So, only when your property makes money, we make money. Till then the entire marketing and branding is free to the Home Owner.

Can I refer a friend to the Network?

Yes, definitely. We wish to create a network of like-minded Home Owners, so people known and recommended by you would be a great fit and hence would be given preference.
