    Very Pleasant Stay. It is a well maintained and clean property. Staff is helpful and courteous. Always ready to help. Food is good. Chef is available so you can possibly also have food made your way. Indian food and bhajiyas were just fab. Chinese and Italian has scope of improvement. A Big Thanks to Yogesh and Kunal to have things ready. A big thank you to Kamesh, Baban and Rajkumar at the villa to take good care of us. Pool is of decent size. Apt to chill. Not for your swimming laps.

    The villa kitchen was not clean when we reached at 2pm, the staff was very nice I don’t blame them. The electricity tripped throughout the day 4 times and at night around 8-10 times, due to which our friends had to wake up to turn the power on again and again thus disturbing us on a vacation. The next day one of the air conditioners was not working due to power tripping and got spoilt in the room. The staff was very nice and accommodating so it’s technically not their fault. I would blame the company in general as they are charging us so much money as security deposit and other stuff but while maintenance you’ll haven’t maintained the property one bit.

    The villa in itself was good and the staff was really courteous and were always there to help us with all our needs. The only issue we had with the villa was the confusing location and the road leading up to the villa. It is safe to say that if you don't have a car with clearance on the higher side, you won't be able to make it to the villa. The road is practically non-existent and it makes Mumbai roads very smooth. On top of this, the saffron stays management was really disappointing. They added on extra charges at a later point on almost everything and that really left a bad taste with us. If you are considering booking this villa, a word of caution: do enquire about all the extra charges that the company can ask for as it is almost a certainty that they will try and milk you for as much as they can.

    Me and my friends were very excited to go to the lavish villa Barney at Lonavla after I won the friendship contest on Saffronstays’ Instagram page. It had been a wonderful stay at Barney's. It is an amazing property. It was clean and neat as per the covid regulations. Property supervisor Kunal greeted us with a warm welcome and refreshing drink which we needed after 3 hrs of journey. The villa isn’t very far from the highway and easy to find. However, since this was monsoon time, the road was a little murky. The villa is quite spacious with 4 bedrooms and ample space for a big gang to have a private get-together. The big master bedroom with balcony overlooking the pool was our favourite. We sat and played indoor games there all evening. Some of the plus points for the villa are - an amazing staff, mouthwatering food, and great hospitality by Baban, Saddam, chef Kisan, and Savita mavshi. They were very kind and courteous to speak to, provided delicious food and a homely feeling in the villa. The food prepared by Chef Kisan and Savita Mavshi was so delicious that it vanished from the dining table immediately as soon as it arrived. The pool was very clean and so was the floor around it. They gave us some complimentary floats too to play in the pool. We could bring in our own speakers to play music and dance. A couple of points we thought could have been taken care of–The place has issues of electricity/power outage multiple times in the day and extra charges are applicable for use of generator if the guests need to use it. Since the climate was favourable we didn’t have an issue during the day but this could be a problem at other times. Also, normal invertors are given by owners as a service free of cost at various such places. This should never be charged. We didn’t have power for about 5 hours in the night and it was very inconvenient. Breakfast–While whatever we ordered in advance was served well and was delicious. Egg and bread wasn’t available. We were informed that only orders placed are given. Wanted to place a suggestion that if fruits are given as complimentary maybe basics like egg and bread should also be kept since menu says egg to order and it is misleading. Overall, it was a wonderful stay. We didn’t feel like leaving. Hospitality and service is excellent and people staying here can be well assured of no hiccups on that front. Saffronstays even gave us a personalized Friendship day mug as

    1) Food was delicious 2) Staff was polite 3) Approach-road to the villa is completely broken 4) Staff didn't change hand towels & bed linen even after repeated reminders 5) Bottles of neighbouring villa was kept inside my booked villa, without informing me. 6) Freezer doesn't get chilled fast enough, so difficult to drink chilled beers. 7) No AC in living room which is a drawback

    Following issues need attention: 1. Location you shared took us to pristine villas. That was really shocking. 2. On arrival villa tour should be provided. 3. Jet sprays in majority of the toilets are installed in wrong side (left side). 4. The pool area should have one swing and few more chairs.

    The location of the place is major drawback, it’s situated in the middle of nowhere..also there aren’t any empty spaces around to play , lawn area is also very small That said the house is very well maintained, modern with all basic amenities Pool is also reasonably well maintained Staff is extremely helpful and courteous A few indoor games like carrom etc could be added All in all a nice place to relax if u aren’t looking for much of outdoor activity and just want to laze around!
