    The stay was great but unfortunately the saffron stays team which helped me book the villa was HORRIBLE! They did not mention the additional charges even after asking for the same several times. Requested for an early check in but even after over 15 calls, i got no response. Extremely unprofessional

    The place was extremely clean and the staff was very welcoming and courteous They catered to all our meal needs and cooked scrumptious healthy meals 4 times a day. They served us hot fulkas on the plates and the taste of all veggies, chicken, starters and desserts was excellent Swimming pool and the location is very nice . The House is spacious with good furniture. Highly recommended for a family get together or friends get together for 8-10 people

    A great experience. Balram - our caretaker, was very helpful. Food was very good. 1-2 things which should have been better: - Towels, bedsheets were not very clean - WiFi was quite erratic

    Overall a Very nice stay, staff was very cooperative Improvement suggestions Water supply was an issue, many times there was no water in bathrooms. Coffee table with 2 chairs should be available in each bedroom to appreciate the scenic beauty: 2 bedrooms had only a single chair. Drawer chest was not opening to keep in our clothes.

    The rooms were not cleaned even once during the entire stay. The water in the pool was full of chlorine. Too much of it.

    The property is very well maintained and is located in a serene part just off the highway. The views are majestic and rooms are spacious and done up aesthetically. A special shout out to Balram and Pandey who are the caretakers and the cooks. They were very polite and are excellent cooks. Their meals made our stay much better during the covid period. We didn't feel like ordering food since what they made and served was so good. It's worth staying at property in Lonavla especially during the monsoon season.

    nice property, well behaved staff, excellent cook (Balram), we enjoyed beyond expectation. Could do with storage geyser with a bigger capacity. Also flooring around swimming pool is slippery and mat can be put there to avoid injury

    The stay was good , very good staff, the food cooked was delicious... the place was clean and tidy ..but few things can be worked upon : 1) very poor wi- fi connection 2) the couch in the living room was not comfortable 3) no air conditioner in the living area . During summers spending time in living area is difficult..

    The Elm is a beautiful and spacious property for a quick getaway with family or friends. It is a new property that is beautifully done up and very comfortable. Great place to go to with kids. The private pool, lawns, and play area were a big hit with them. The staff was hospitable and there are tons of good dhabas around for take-out. Highly recommend the Elm and can't wait to visit again.

    We had a lovely stay at elm.. it’s extremely kid friendly.. Kids even have a small lovely park in the society to keep them busy .. the bungalow is massive and comfortable.. The house has a lovely outdoor deck by the poolside to hang out in the evenings.. Definitely a great choice for get togethers...

    What an amazing property . Easy acces from main road and distance to dhabas and market is barely anything . Yet when you enter it feels like a secluded haven. Safe gated community has all amenities . The best part is having a private pool, porch and lawn all to your disposal . Definitely recommend for a family outing , weekend with friends or even a mad boys/girls trip !

    We were 2 families ( of 4 each) and spend 3 nights ; the villa was very spacious , clean and new ! We had a wonderful time , fully utilized the pool , the kids had a blast . The pool was about 4.5ft deep that definitely helped to with the younger ones and less stress for the parents :) The cook Balram and his helper Yuraj was very good , serving delicious meals to our liking and preference. It was a perfect "Lock-in at Lonavla" weekend , much needed during these COVID times. The only point I think I would highlight is to see if the caretakers can have a separate washroom for their use and not use the one in the main living room area of the villa. This will help to reduce the interactions given the COVID situation and even otherwise.

    Excellent property and an amazing experience! It is exactly as seen in the pictures. The villa is tastefully done and spacious. Rooms were very clean and sanitized and the villa overall is well equipped. Kids really enjoyed the pool, which was well kept throughout the day. We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the peaceful serene corner. Ideally located in Lonavala, with a scenic landscape. It's a perfect place to chill and relax with your family and friends. P.S. A lot of nice dhaba’s around to order food from :)
