    Location is very scenic . Surrounded by beautiful mountains. The place is build with care and it's good space for 8 adults. Food is just awesome. Sameer is care taker and he takes care of property and guests really well. Inder is best cook. Staff is very good. Bathrooms needs bit more cleanliness. Best place for pets . Our dog really enjoyed the open garden. Beautful porch. Don't hook on swimming pool. There is Ample to play. Sky gazing is so possible and it's clear. In and all wonderful stay. Kitea cheez!!!👍

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Lovely place.. a little remote but once you reach, you are well taken care of. Special mention for Inderjis meals and extra hospitality by Sameer Deshmukh. Wifi was decent and oscar our pet thoroughly enjoyed. There are no strays on the property - so that was a plus.. kudos to the team

    Hey Sujit! Unfortunate that this occurred, was indeed unprecedented for the initial few hours! Otherwise Meals, View, Staff specially have always been a highlight here at Olive! Happy to know that you enjoyed the overall stay! We await your arrival soon :)

    The staff is extremely nice. Samir ( caretaker) is always smiling and helpful. The property was not in use for a while and needs pest control and repairs of gadgets such as TV. The property has nice view. However out of 4 bed rooms one is under equipped. Overall a decent experience.

    Very good experience Mr sameer and his team were too good Should have more option in Fruits and food option

    SaffronStays Care Team

    It was a pleasure to host you Hardik. Current options served are as per the availability and we have always had great feed backs throughout. We shall certainly have a relook at the suggestions, thank you. Looking forward to host you soon!

    Scenic background, lots of open space, staff makes effort but they need to be trained more, they are attentive & helpful, food is good, hygiene needs to be worked upon - fly in tea, sugar.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    It was unfortunate that our staff could not control the fly falling into the tea which was of course reserved immediately. It is first time we have ever received such a feed back about our staff (request refer all the earlier reviews). We were unable to entertain guest's unacceptable request to treat full meal payment to half. Over all not a very encouraging experience!

    Thanks a lot for your visit to our place. It was pleasure hosting you with little one. Look forward for your return....

    Beautiful location, everything was perfect except the wifi. Given that there is very poor reception here, atleast the wifi needs to work properly. The host had arranged for a Jio dongle but that had a very limited range and was not always working. Other than that, everything was great

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Mr Anurag has been a wonderful guest. We fully appreciate his concern about WiFi problem. Though we have a dedicated leased fiber cable for the Farmhouse but at times there are certain breakdowns which are beyond control. Dongle as a back up will be further strengthened for future. Look forward to host you with family and friends in future as well.

    20 Aug 2021

    The location is great. The best we could have asked for during the monsoon. The staff is helpful and pleasing. Samir ensured we also have a look around the villa to the Ulhas river. However the approach road to the villa is really bad. Better to have a SUV, Few things that can be better inside the villa- there needs to be a goodnight inside each room- loads of mosquitoes. Also the utensils can be cleaned better. We had to ask for them to be cleaned again

    Mihir (5)
    16 Aug 2021

    The location and the staff were simply amazing. Service was provided with a smiling face everytime and we were well taken care of. No complaints about the staff at all. The property was not as exclusive it appeared in the pictures and the door know of one of the bathrooms was spoilt which caused a lot of trouble. All in all, we had a good time but we felt that the property was not worth the price paid.

    An awesome place for a getaway and right in the greenery and the mountains and the village of Karjat. An awesome place for relaxation and I loved my time spent with my family. The staff at the villa is very helpful and warm. The food is good and homely food but very very expensively priced and the same applies for drivers food.

    Aniket (4.8)

    Beautiful property with excellent staff. We had a great time playing in the plunge pool and the well maintained lawn. The sit out area is a gr8 place to have food, enjoy the views and have family fun time…

    It was nice to host Mr Aniket and his friends at Olive Greens.

    Staff is excellent.. Chef Indian cuisine preparation is very good.. but needs training on other cuisines.. we had opted for Chinese for dinner and it was a disaster.. All other meals with Indian cuisines were excellent.. Found the Villa a bit overpriced.. The best part was service of entire team.. Specially Sameer the caretaker 1 extra star is for him.

    Rajiv (4.5)
    06 Jul 2021

    The place is extremely beautiful with open view of rolling meadows and hills. The lawns are spacious and well maintained. The house is clean and well-appointed with WiFi modem, tv with cable, pressure pump, power backup etc. The caretaker and staff is available round the clock and take good care. We left a few things back and they took special care to ensure that we got it back. The attractions nearby including the Kondane caves and ulhas river and the treks in the hills kept us occupied. The house is a little small for such a large property and the living area and bedroom can feel a little cramped. Two of the bedrooms have a common toilet. The swimming pool is small and even though cleaned, the water was not clear (not sure what the issue was). The food is plentiful and made with good ingredients but lacks the skill of an adept chef. Beyond a day or two, it can get monotonous (though the cooks are willing to try their hand at variety for e.g. pasta, but lack the skill). Overall, it is a gem of a place in a quiet and restful corner of Karjat.

    Very nice place qnd staff. Friendly caretaker. Went out of their way to make the stay nice for us. Only request is if a proper wireless Internet can be provided. Lovely place to detox over the weekend

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Dear Akash, Thanks for taking out the time to review us. Glad to know you enjoyed the place and our hospitality. Basis your feedback, we have installed a fiber optics cable for a steady internet connection. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones, soon :)

    If you want to take a breather from the hustle bustle of Mumbai (and you love your pet too much to leave him/her behind), Olive Greens presents a great home away from home. I could never imagine that such a picturesque place exists at just a 2 hour drive from Mumbai - located in a quintessential Indian rural setting at the foothills of Sahyadris and fortunately too far for the dreaded disease to have made a mark. The actual living space at the Colonel' farmhouse (renamed Olive Greens) is probably slightly smaller than you would ideally like it to be but the overall property including the garden area etc. is expansive enough with a breathtaking view of the mountains. While Chochi Wadi may not necessarily ring a bell, but it does have pieces of history and adventure (Kondana caves, Baba Gambhirnath samadhi and caves, temples etc.) intertwined for folks who want to put the extra effort (a fair bit of effort for city dwellers like me but definitely worth it).. But as they say good behavior and great food can conquer any heart (albeit sometimes through the stomach), the three muketeers – Samir, Inder ji and Mama look like an indispensable team who have kept the Saffron banner flying high and have impressed one and all. Inder Ji’s lip smacking food (the real Maharaj); Mama’ ever-smiling face (along with Mami’ hospitality at her home) and exuberance, and Samir’ calm persona and willingness to go the extra mile – all three of them epitomizing the spirit of “Atithi Devo Bhava”, made a world of difference and made us feel at home, away from home. Off course, there are a few things that still can be improved – proper fencing and security, upgrade of the bathrooms (exhausts etc.) and the garden area, creating proper lawns etc. But if you desire a lazy weekend getaway, waking-up in the lap of the mountains, gorging on some yummylicious sumptuous Indian food, enjoying your children and pet getting tired with acres of playground, not zooming / Teaming, not having to dress-up every morning to do the tourist’e things and for most parts not depriving your body of oxygen hiding behind a mask…just relaaaaxxxxxx and absorb nature with a rustic twist…book your stays now… Thank you once again to the 3 musketeers and Team Saffronstays for making our first ever homestay really special and creating these moments which we hope to cherish forever..

    The staff at the property are very nice and took great care of us during the stay. The SaffronStays team was not very helpful. We had an issue at the property and they did not offer to help resolve - in fact they were not even reachable!

    Very helpful staff and the chief was very friendly and excellent .Approach road is difficult to navigate and I recommend anyone visiting this villa to connect with the caretaker before reaching there so as to avoid any confusion

    It was a pleasure to host them at Olive Greens.

    Amit (4.5)
    20 Dec 2020

    Best part was the host team and the front porch. Team took good care of our requirements. Safety could be improved a bit by keeping a proper security guard as the area is secluded. Lastly, farm house pricing is high as the living area is small for a bigger group.

    Nirav (5)
    07 Dec 2020

    We had a very pleasant experience with our stay at Olive Greens. The property is clean and well maintained (even though it isn’t expansive, especially the pool being quite small). The food was quite good, and the staff led by Sameer were very courteous, prompt and accommodating. Couple of areas that they could do better in: (a) Wifi availability - with telecom network poor, wifi does become important and it was quite patchy (b) Mask adherence - the staff was very focused on hygiene, but had to be often reminded to properly wear masks, especially indoors. This is especially relevant for conservative folks travelling with elderly people, like us. Overall, no major complaints and loved the enthusiasm and service-focus of the staff

    SaffronStays Care Team

    They have been very polite and extremely wonderful to host at Olive Geena. The staff was much obliged with their kind nature and support.

    Property is not worth for the money that we have spent for 3 nights i.e. 76K Approach Road to property is also pathetic. There is nothing to do in the property except indoor games. Anyway food was good and staff was also good.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    We thank you for rating the property Four star and appreciating the food, housekeeping, hygiene and safety. A heartfelt thank you to your son for leaving the encouraging video for us. It is unfortunate that you could not explore the nearby attractions like Kondane caves, Ullhas river, tracking routes and bird watching greens due to rains and weather conditions. We do have out door sports activities like cricket, football, badminton and swimming pool etc but may be due to rains you couldn’t make use of the same. Wishing you many interesting holidays with Saffronstays.

    05 Oct 2020

    The location is beautiful. The staff is courteous. They could probably be told to clean washrooms more. The common bath needs some upgrading. Please do consider improving the wifi. While the cook is good, the chicken was prepared in the same way for all meals.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Monika, Thanks for your feedback. You were one of our first guests at this villa and this definitely helps us improve. I am glad that overall you had a good experience and liked the villa and the view. Yes, we will surely work on training the caretaker for more variety in food preparations.Cleanliness is very important to us and he does clean up the place once a day. We can surely ask him to check with guests if they wish to have the washrooms cleaned up more often. We look forward to having you stay over again.
