Opal Villa - 3 Bedroom Farmhouse in Karjat, Near Mumbai | Villa, Karjat

Opal Villa - Karjat, Maharashtra

Our speciality

Enveloped by bountiful nature, SaffronStays Opal Villa is a spacious 3 bedroom villa in Karjat, hidden away from the crowds. With expansive lawns and several board games stocked, the villa is the ideal respite for your getaway with family and friends.

Detailed Description

Walk on an unbeaten path through the woods under the dense canopy of trees, cross the canal using the wooden plank and wander through the orchards which open to a clearing, and voila! You've reached the villa. Concealed by a forest, SaffronStays Opal Villa, in the midst of a 1.75 acre lawn strewn with trees, is a hidden gem that offers the luxury of privacy amidst nature.

A beige coloured structure with a red gable roof, the villa has a living room with a 40-foot high sloping roof that opens out to lush greenery via sliding glass doors. The vintage looking light fixtures, exposed wooden beams on the ceiling and hardwood flooring gives the room an elegant yet at the same time a rustic charm. A touch of quirkiness is added to the home with framed film posters of old movies like Sholay, Hum Dono, etc placed on the walls. The bedrooms are decorated with a mix of warm and vibrant colours that enlivens the rooms. Two of the three bedrooms have balconies attached which offers beautiful views of the verdant nature and green hills. So, rush through the home to claim the best bedrooms!

Run around barefoot on the supple grass lawns, wander around to explore the woods or just chill in the home. Explore the water bodies and streams in the property, and adjacent to it. The wide and open spaces and the verdant nature all around guarantees a pleasant weather for your escape from the concrete jungles.

Activities: Interested in a short hike? A hike to the top of the neighbouring hills (about 2-3 hours) will get your endorphins going, not to mention giving you a hearty appetite! A fantastic 360° view from the top will mesmerise you with nature extending for miles in all directions. Our caretakers will be happy to act as trek guides and will be happy to pack sandwiches, should you need to fortify yourself during the trek.

P.S - If you are travelling with a larger group, we have a 3-bedroom twin villa on the same grounds- SaffronStays Jade Villa - that you can book.

Please Note: There is a shared kitchen between SaffronStays Jade Villa and SaffronStays Opal Villa.
