Wood for the bonfire could have been more plentiful. Didn't like that I had to pay a 10k security deposit for this stay. Otherwise, no complaints, great stay!
Had a lovely and comfortable stay. Kalpana , Aruna and Anil all were very warm and hospitable people. The food was delicious. Particularly loved the idlis, appe and the stuffed parathas.
The owner has built the home with great attention to detail! It is an extremely serene place and helps one connect with nature and is an ideal place for families (senior citizens who are immobile may find it to be difficult to access). Peacocks and peahens are regular visitors in the mornings making it an amazing experience to watch. The terrace area is a great place to bond over games or just sit and relax. Besides the view from the villa is breathtaking. Kalpana tai is a great cook and churns out tasty dishes which don't make you miss home cooked food even while on a vacation. The team at Avabodha is extremely customer centric and makes sure your stay is pleasant and comfortable. Would surely recommend it to folks who love nature.
"Dear Preet, Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones."
Overall nice stay
Kalpana and Anil went an extra mile to take care of us especially our old parents. They were always smiling. Kalpana is a great cook. We enjoyed our stay. The view is awesome from the house. Thank you Alka for making sure our stay was perfect.
Loved it really
Had a wonderful time at Avabodha. Well maintained house with all covid requirements followed. Excellent caretaker and cook. We enjoyed our stay.
We enjoyed our stay at Avabodha. The food here was excellent. The view was amazing and it always refreshed us. We enjoyed the bonfire and it kept us warm the whole night. This trip was very soothing and relaxing. The caretaker, Kalpana is ready for the new normal with all the requisite precautions
Avabodha - true to its name, has helped me rediscover my battered, abused, ignored and neglected sensory faculties. The sounds of the woods, the sights of the lake and the valley, the glimpse of the magnificent Sahyadri, the endearing long lost vintage fresh air that invigorates not only the body but also the mind and spirit are all a standing testimony to the name of this abode. This place is not a typical bungalow or a villa on a hill station. It's an experience. It's a living entity communicating with the keen observer at every corner of the house. Be it the electrical switches, the jars in the kitchen, the clock, the architecture, the stonework, the woodwork… the attention to details is so intense that the visitor feels welcome at each and every moment and turn of the house. Avabodha envelopes one, the way he would want to be cradled and held in the Almighty's embrace. It infuses life. It's a place where you'd want to spend as much time as life permits. The hustle of
Kedar and I had stayed over at Avabodha some days ago. Just wanted to say a Big 'Thank you!' ðŸ˜ƒ Thank you so much for letting us stay there. The experience of staying in Avabodha has definitely changed quite a few things for us; as individuals and as partners too! The first change was food. Thanks to Kalpana Tai's cooking and all the simple organic food we realised that the veggies and dairy products we get here in the city are hardly any good! Ofcourse we miss the farm fresh vegetables of Panchgani ðŸ™‚ After our honeymoon in May last year, Kedar and I hadn't been on even a short break or a weekend to a place close to nature. We were always traveling home for festival and relatives' visits. We didn't realise how much time-off we both needed. This 4 days trip turned out to be way better than the honeymoon ! We mostly spent time alone ... reading, just watching the lake, listening to the chirping of birds and swishing of the leaves, catching on our sleep ðŸ™‚ It was relaxing a

Thank you saffron stays to help us find a great destination!!
It was a memorable stay. The property is very beautiful and well maintained.
As with most of my stays at the listed properties of Saffron Stays in the past, the temptation of extending One's scheduled stay is always over-whelming - &, undoubtedly, AVABODHA was no different. Besides the usual parameters listed above on which AVABODHA excelled, my Family& myself felt a definite sense of peace & serenity about the place which, among other things, helped me rekindle my long-lost fondness of reading. In a nutshell, AVABODHA aptly embodies the spirit of Saffron Stays tag-line - "Where Families Bond." I would like to extend my gratitude to the owner - Ms. Alka Sesha & the caring Inn-keepers: AnilJi & his wife Kalpana for making this stay memorable with moments to cherish for a Lifetime. Signing off with Best Wishes to Saffron Stays for a glorious Innings ahead & their efforts in making the Families bond. Godspeed !! -adi
The place was exactly as described. Amazing views and home-cooked delicious food. We would love to come back. Good for people who want to go away from the city and enjoy solitude and peace. Only two points - 1. it has a 200 mt walk from the car park and a little steep. 2. Open kitchen with sitting/hall area.
