    It was one of the best stays we have had. We were surprised to see the comfort and the pleasant ambience of the cottages . Very comfortable and soothing. The beds are bit high , so children need to take care and cannot be left alone. It offers good options for indoor and outdoor games. Badminton , carrom , cricket, board games , library, restting shamianas and deewan! The staff deserve a 5 star . Jhanvi is an exclent cook ( local cuisines) , sanjay is of great help with a smiling face , kaka is always on toes and others are great help. Service is the best. Pool is clean and maintained. Main area of property is well maintained and safe . Around main property is little unmaintained and have local insects and creatures (expected , its their home ) . So children should be accompanied. Beware - Network is almost ZERO! No data too. Wifi is available and is only way to stay in touch with your family and work. But power cut off is frequent and hence you are totally cut off from the world then. Otherwise we had a great stay. Delicious food. Great fun activities. Must visit.

    The place is beautiful,u can develop it a lot more,the TVs were not working,the beds are a bit too high for senior citizens,my Dad found it difficult to climb up,also if you could raise the step into the bigger cottage it was an efgirt for him to step in and out,some of the fan regulators were not wrkng.The staff is very good.

    It was our first time experience with Saffron stays! And we really enjoyed it.. Kudos to the caretakers & cooks who made our stay wonderful. Special thanks to Janvi & Pallavi who cooked delicious meals and also cooked for my one year old baby perfectly. Overall the property is really beautiful and peaceful, away from city life! Rooms are spacious(3 bedroom cottage). Toilets need to be renovated soon! Water flow very slow and overall toilets not up to the mark. But overall great experience for a nice getaway with family & friends! Looking forward to explore more options from Saffron stays!

    - location of the property and surroundings are great but the actual house needs a bit more planning. Maybe a refrigerator and a kettle within the house would be really useful. -the living room of the house could be planned better for the occupants to spend time together. - the meals were freshly made, homestyle cooking & I felt the breakfast could have a bit more variety instead of us asking for everything separately (eggs, fruit, toast, etc.) - wrt food, for non- vegetarians, there was only chicken made for 5 of the 6 meals & when we requested for mutton, it was charged separately (which is alright but maybe some variety in the chicken curries might be better instead of the same curry being served) -The staff was very polite and helpful. Overall a good stay but can be excellent if these little details are taken care of.

    Lovely property, clean and green in the midst of nature. River on one side, a small lake on the other. 3BR cottage was spacious and comfortable. The home food cooked by Jhanvi was absolutely delicious! The pool is clean and nice, and well maintained. All in all a very satisfying family holiday. A few improvement areas : 1. Mattresses are a bit hard, ideally a foam mattress would be better. 2. Geysers are small, the hot water gets finished quite soon, so a bigger geyser like 20L is preferred.

    Mango huts is a serene getaway nestled in the lap of nature! The property is extremely well maintained. The caretakers are very helpful and took care of all our needs. The meals were homely and the cook took care of all your asks. We had booked a 3bedroom villa which gave us exclusive access to the swimming pool. The pool was very clean and soothing! We an amazing time at mango huts!!

    Warm staff and great food. Property is very good. Some additional emphasis on cleanliness of cutlery will be good. Great stay and must visit place. Saffron Stays: Good concept and variety of choices. Service level of saffron stays needs to improve. There is no communication from the saffron stays teams from the time of booking till the itinerary begins. That’s unsettling and needs to be addressed. Unresponsive service team.

    We had a wonderful stay in Mango huts . I think the highlight was the location of the property and the staff there. All of us enjoyed each meal prepared by the cook. I will def visit this property again

    We had a wonderful stay at Mango Hut. Jhanvi and Sanjay were very hospitable. Jhanvi made the most delicious local cuisine with love and was very warm and gracious. Sanjay was also prompt and helpful. The natural environment at Mango hut is just unbelievable. The only reason that I have given a 4 for safety is that the road to Khopoli was in extremely bad condition and at times even felt unsafe. A heads up from the Saffron Stays team would have been appreciated. Also, I would recommend more consistent mask wearing by all members of staff. Though the main staff wore masks most of the times, other people visiting or servicing the property did not always wear masks. This is for the staff's safety as much as visitor's safety. Overall a wonderful experience and we look forward to going back! Everyone returned home happy, and so satiated with the natural beauty around! Special thanks to Jhanvi, Sanjay and Suresh!

    Enjoyed our stay at Mango Huts. But there r lot of things which cld be improved. Especially the bathrooms. We stayed in 3 bedroom cottage n in one of the bathrooms there was leakage from the commode . We brought it to the notice of the care taker but he cld not do much n we had to use the dirty wet toilet. Hot water too was not available in the shower because there was no water pressure ..All the bathrooms need to be renovated. Even the mattresses r very hard. No side tables next to the bed. If these things r improved we wld love to cum bck again. Five stars to the food served. V tasty. The caretakers Mr.n Mrs Waghmare r v polite n helpful. They took good care of us.

    We highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a true farm stay experience and spend a quiet time amidst nature. Read on for a detailed review. Property: The place is perfectly set amidst nature and away from any hustle bustle of a village or a city. The property is decently maintained with basic cleanliness. It has a rustic and a village-like feel to it. Most of the open space is not yet developed and has an unkempt look, although there are well defined walking paths. It has a mid-size pool which is properly maintained. Villas: The property has two villas and a separate villa/cottage that houses the kitchen and the dining room. We were staying in the three bedroom villa. While the villa itself is beautiful and has a rustic feel to it, it was a bit too basic. The rooms did not have tables or stands for luggage. Only a bed or two. No wardrobes or storage was provided. It’s ok for a night or two, but you can’t live off a suitcase for longer stays. No side tables for the bed. The rooms are in serious need of more power sockets to charge your devices. Our room had only one power outlet which was six feet high. No way to charge your phones. The common room/living room, again, was in serious need of more tables. These are only slight inconveniences. The bathrooms are pretty basic, but can do with better maintenance and ventilation. The garden outside the villas are not usable at all. No lights, no seating arrangements no supplies. You don’t visit such places to spend the evenings inside the villas. There was only one area near the property entrance, which has some kind of seating arrangements, and we found ourselves spending our evenings there. Not very ideal, as it is just across the main gate. I strongly suggest developing the garden outside the villas for use. Staff: The property is maintained by a young couple. Very friendly and extremely cooperative. The woman is the cook and will dish out anything that you’d like to eat. Always smiling and welcoming. The food was great with good choices. However, these are basic home cooked ‘Indian’ meals only. Connectivity: The place has no cell-phone/mobile connectivity. But it does have high-speed internet (15-20 Mbps) that is available 24 hours around the Villas and the Dining room, which is a huge plus. Final word: This is a property that will feel like your own home. It is NOT a hotel or a resort. So do not expect that kind of service.

    Not much needed to give review about the property because it's as same live as you find them on website. Would take much time to give credit to some wonderful hosts with welcoming heart ans some deliciously prepared food that made every meal worth gaining all the praise. Thanks SaffronStays for hosting such amazing property and Waghmare (caretaker) and family for making our trip to remember for long time.

    Me and my group of friends really enjoyed our stay at Mango Huts. Overall the property is very nice and comfortable. Caretaker and the staff are very good and ensured that our stay remains comfortable. They were very warm and also tried to meet most of our requirements regarding food. Living room is huge and spacious. Few areas of improvements: 1. Although all the beds were covered by a mosquito net , it would be helpful to also provide mosquito repellant. 2. One of the bathroom doors could not be locked. AC in one of the room was not working and water was leaking from the AC in other room which also resulted in electricity tripping. We had to shut the AC to avoid any short circuit. 3. Food was very good and homely. For dinner our preference would have been some light fast food. I had asked for the menu earlier as it would have avoided food going waste. This may change from group to group.

    The farm-stay experience was a very good one for us. With no 3G / 4G cellular network, no TV, all that we had was nature to hang out with! We spent a good amount of time in the farm in the company of pouring rains and 4 ultra friendly dogs! The food was simple yet delicious and very warmly served. The service was very friendly and prompt. All in all, a very good different experience!
