About the Home

At the foothills of the Sahyadri mountains, near the expanse of Arabian sea, SaffronStays Beyond is a place of refuge from the frenzied urban life. A retreat for the nature lovers, you can indulge in bird-watching, butterfly-counting, stargazing and appreciating the beauty of nature.

A contemporary home with all the modern comforts, this home pays homage to mother nature with the greenery surrounding the home, the open air bathrooms, indoor plants as well as the earthy decor. Wooden and wicker furnishings dominate the rooms, giving the home a rustic touch. Bougainvillaea and frangipani flowers bloom around and the lush greenery cocoons the home, keeping it cool throughout the year.

Built with the traditional Indian concept of 'aangan' - courtyards, SaffronStays Beyond blurs the boundaries, seamlessly merging the interiors with the outdoors. This single level home houses all the rooms on the ground level, making it easily accessible by elders.

Relax with the sounds of the rustling bamboo leaves and the melodic bird calls as you sit out on the bench or rejuvenate with a refreshing dip in the pool.

Please Note

There are 2 pet dogs on-site - Tinkerbell and Peter Pan. Rest assured, they will not disturb your stay.
Since the home is surrounded by nature, there might be a possibility of sighting snakes on site. Guests are advised to shut the windows and doors before dark and to alert the caretaker at the earliest for the same.
The last 1 km of the rood condition is poor. Guests are advised to travel in a sturdy car.
The home is in a rural area of Maharashtra, powered by MSEB. In case of disruption due to fluctuation, we have a genset which burns out beyond 6 hours of usage. So, it will be turned off after every 2 hours for 30 minutes in order for it to be used throughout the day.

Meal arrangements

Meals are included in the tariff.
We provide healthy home-cooked meals prepared using locally sourced fresh ingredients. We recommend trying out our local chef's veg specialty like Matkichi Bhaji, Chhole and Paneer Handi. In non-veg, try Fish Curry, Malavani-style Chicken or Alibaug-style Chicken.

I visited and chose this place as a day getaway from Mumbai stress with my cousins from the U.K. This place turned out to be really a refreshing experience. The house, decor, ambience and the rains added to its beauty. Full of nature, peace & bliss. Food was O.K. decent home-cooked meal. But the home is tastefully done. Eco-friendly. My 10-year-old son & 3-year-old have enjoyed the swimming pool. Watching the "Crabs" :-) and nature at the same time. My mother-in-law a senior citizen with a hip surgery was comfortable and happy. I had my doubts that a one-day getaway becomes more stressful rather than enjoyable but the nature surrounding the place changed my mindset. Staff is very friendly, prompt at service. Would surely ask my friends to come to beyond for a wonderful experience..!!. ...
