About the Home

  • Coddled away by distant hills, in the midst of the authentic charm of the ‘Baug’, lies SaffronStays Minerva, just 30 minutes from Mandwa Jetty and the Kihim Beach.
  • This 4-bedroom private villa with a pool flaunts a huge lawn area and has a typical homely vibe that’ll subtly nudge and remind you to pause and take that much needed break.
  • Drive through the quaint alleys of Alibaug where the air comprises sea breeze and bliss, as your heart jumps with all the family getaway excitement. As soon as you reach the home, you’ll be greeted by lush green lawns that surround the sparkling swimming pool.
  • The large living room with a common sitting area and a dining space boasts of walls decorated with carefully picked European paintings and thoughtfully curated interiors following a ‘Mix N Match’ theme, much to the Homeowner’s liking.
  • The ground level comprises two bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom) and a dreamy patio paves way for the backyard from the living room where the swimming pool lies.
  • A spiral staircase leads you to the first level that has two bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom) that opens up into balconies of their own. There is another common sitting area on the first level followed by a terrace that overlooks the pool and offers panoramic views of distant hills.
  • A slow afternoon or a chirpy evening by the pool surrounded by a lawn that consists of plentiful plantations sets the mood just right. Forget the screens and make memories of a kind with your family or friends by indulging in some fun outdoor games like cricket, badminton or other board games.
  • Devour lip-smacking home-fresh meals cooked by our professionally trained chef using locally sourced ingredients. Get spoiled for choice with piping hot non-vegetarian dishes, vegetarian curries and desserts, all with a hint of Alibaug in them.

    It was our first stay with Saffron Stays and it was a great experience. Love how SS has maintained the property with excellent staff and concierge/ support services. The property was superb. Spacious, clean, good location and very warm and accommodating on the ground staff managed by Mr. Mahesh. We were a group of 14 I.e. four families with kids and Mahesh and his team offered a great support, services and were super flexible providing variety of well cooked meals, snacks and other services in requests. Would definitely visit again to this property in Alibaug and with Saffron Stays.

    It was a perfect vacation. The staff was always on their toes to help. The huge lawn area is perfect for an early morning stroll. The bedrooms are very big and with lots of space . The photos do not do justice to the property, It is much much better than that. The pool was again a highlight and perfect place to cool yourself during the afternoon. I will definitely visit again.
