About the Home

  • Summer in a home? That’s SaffronStays Estella, a 5-bedroom private villa near Mandwa Beach with chic, one-of-a-kind experiences for you and your family. Tucked away in the serene hilly nooks of Alibaug, this Signature home has a large swimming pool and an even larger garden making it the ideal attraction for family getaways, milestone celebrations and/or corporate offsites.
  • Walk through the entrance and watch how the home dramatically unfolds itself with sparkling waters of the swimming pool, cheerfully backdropped by verdant lawns of green often speckled by butterflies and skies streaked by branches of tamarind and bamboo.
  • It’s like time traveling back to your summer holidays, walking into this home. A typical mansion of contemporary aesthetics and pops of blues, browns and greens where you can laze around with your kids, take leisure strolls with your better half and treat yourself with the finest and the calmest - something that the city life deprives you from.
  • Towards your right is the first bedroom (with an ensuite bathroom) on the ground level offering unobstructed views of the garden and the lawns, equipped with a television. Walk out of this bedroom and you’ll reach the bright and breezy living room that again, overlooks the pool and the lawns.
  • The first level comprises the other four bedrooms (each with ensuite bathrooms) and the highlight of the home, the Game Room! The Game Room, due to its all-window interior, has natural sunlight playing peek-a-boo for most part of the day. It comprises a huge pool table, table tennis, a large television set, books to escape the world with and a powder room. Bonding over games and fun? This is where it all happens!
  • A patio at the end of the living room stands with an outdoor bar and a sitting area perfect for basking in the early morning sun, or kicking back in solitude with your favorite drink after a hearty dinner. Clubbed with some poolside loungers is an al fresco dining setting under a tamarind tree, that smells of nostalgia where you can share stories with your little ones over a happy brunch.
    (Pro tip: Keep all phones at a safe distance.)
  • Furthermore, a suspended bed swing at the extreme end of this lush green garden and a short walking pathway are some winsome spots where everyone in the family can chill.
  • The humble magic of home-fresh food prepared by our locally trained in-home chef extends right from refreshing welcome drinks of Virgin Mojito or Strawberry Fizz to a piping hot breakfast of Waffles and Burritos, to a wholesome dinner arrangement that leaves no stone unturned. Expect some lip-smacking dishes such as Chicken Stroganoff with Herb Rice, Roasted Plum Tomato and Basil Soup, and many such Oriental and Continental recipes with a definite hint of love and a whole lot of warmth that is food for the soul.
  • We realise that the true essence of a getaway lies in pampering our guests to the fullest and keeping them happy. Our dedicated Property Manager/Supervisor ensures you are spoilt for choice without having to compromise anything.

    We had a fabulous stay at Estella. The villa is gorgeous, with a beautiful swimming pool and a large garden. The location is really convenient if you are coming via the ferry. The staff is very friendly and helpful and did everything to make our stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The best part was that the place is pet friendly, our fur baby was really happy to be there as well. Highly recommend this place.
