So i had booked this villa for my sons 8th birthday as a family get together. The villa is spacious. It is just as shown in the pics. By paying a little extra we got food made in the villa itself. Very helpful caretaker. We also got drivers accommodation by paying a minimal charge. Overall i would recommend it to everyone. You will enjoy if you are coming here as a group. Its a neat and well kept place...

I must say this was one of my best trips ever. Lavasa was on the list but I was not so keen about it. My wifey checked out the place on Booking and I was convinced for the trip. The travel time was apprx. 4 tiring hours but once we reached the villa it was a stress buster. 1. Superb large place with humongous hall(actually we can play box cricket If we move the couches), 4 large size bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. 2. Ample place for kids to play. 3. Sweet and silent staff,friendly in nature. 4. Good small gardens around the house. 5. Awesum view through the mile size windows 6. Cleanliness and hygiene was above the standards,rather I would say a new benchmark. 7. Super sized TV was simply topping on the cake ( I am a TV freak) 8. Reaching the place was little downside as roads are rocky, but it has its own benefits, quite and silent. 9. Price was good as we booked at very last minute. 10. Last but not the least good weather to stay in the house with good space. Suggestions 1....

At the offered price, this is an excellent family getaway in Lavasa. With 4 bedrooms (2 of them on the first floor very spacious) - all of them with valley view are airconditioned and with attached bathrooms. Good things: - nice location with great view - spacious villa - well maintained lawn and landscape - caretaker is a good fellow. Can also provide basic meals and snacks (kanda bhajiya etc) No so good: - access road to the villa is rough - Lavasa is losing charm as it is not well maintained. But you can spend all your time in Villa and enjoy family time...

We visited Lavasa and stayed at the Calvin &Hobbes villas. We found both the villas extremely comfortable. The villas are spacious, comfortable and very well maintained. The villas were well furnished, equipped with the right accessories as toiletries. The bedrooms were very roomy. The living room was adequately furnished to seat all of us. Raghu, the caretaker and his wife took very good care of us. We had communicated the food we would need and the food preparation was wholesome and tasty. Our stay was very enjoyable and we will re-visit....

My friends and I had a very pleasant and happy stay at Calvin. Beautiful view from the 2 bedrooms at the first floor. Very clean bed linen. Excellent and warm welcome by caretaker and his family. We took caretaker's service to provide lunch and breakfast. Very tasty, simple, homely food. They went an extra mile to help us when we leftbehind something at the bunglow on our check out. Overall an excellent stay. Since the bunglow is perched on a hill, a vehicle is a must to travel within Lavasa. However, the view from the first floor is very beautiful, gives a good view of Lavasa city including the lake....

Had a superb time at the Lavasa property of Saffronstays. Ideal for a weekend getaway for Mumbaikars during the monsoons. We were a group of ten people and the Bungalow was just the ideal retreat for our family group with children. The caretaker was quite friendly. Created some wonderful memories during our stay!...

About the Home

Looking to escape the noise of the city and spend some quality time with your loved ones this weekend? This charming 4-bedroom villa in Lavasa (just a short drive from Mumbai/ Pune) is a great holiday retreat for neighboring city dwellers.

Designed for large family get-togethers or even a small reunion with your college buddies, SaffronStays Calvin allows you to spend some much-needed quality time together away from the big city. Relax, unwind and let the picturesque backdrop of the mountains and charming lakeviews soothe you.

Savor the morning sunrise with a steaming cup of coffee out on the spacious deck. Or spend the day challenging your loved ones to a game of Monopoly or Housie in our comfy living room. Round up the kids - both young and old - for a smashing game of paintball down at XThrills (a gaming extravaganza complete with paintball, rappelling, rock-climbing and indoor golf). If you’d rather take in the sights, you could also rent cycles from XThrills and discover all that Lavasa has to offer on wheels.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing vacation up in a hill station or an action-packed weekend of adventurous sports, SaffronStays Calvin has something special to offer you!

P.S - If you’re travelling with a larger group, we have a twin villa right next door - Hobbes - that guests can book.
