    The caretakers were really good and food was excellent if you like spicy home made food. We loved the view and the location too. Great for a quiet weekend.

    It's a beautiful house atop a seasonal stream. Unfortunately, it's location right inside a village and the villagers do their washing (clothes and dishes) all day, right in front of the house and the deck (the only logical place for folks in enjoy the house). Also, there is too much trash inside the stream and around it. It would be great to see the owners take some initiative and get this cleaned up. The linen and bedding quality was good and clean. The food, ordered from outside, was tasty but definitely not worth the price. They seem to have an arrangement with a friendly neighbour and frankly, there isn't any other place to order from nearby. The in-house breakfast was very oily and not great. We were travelling with a baby and the house is not the most kid-friendly. The jacuzzi's location, right in middle of the deck, is a safety hazard for children for sure. Our dog had a gala time, exploring all around the house and the surroundings. Overall, it was a decent experience

    Offering an in-house jacuzzi with the river view and a rustic looking cottage so close to nature, SaffronStays River Rock is located so close to Mumbai in Panvel. I decided to go here to celebrate my birthday with a small bunch of friends & it was incredible. The property opens to a small garden with a living room with different & earthy looking cottage. At night it was pitch dark, we could here the sounds of insects & in morning the chirping of birds. The caretaker was helpful & friendly too. People at SaffronStays were always connected while our stay. Go out, explore & enjoy your nature stay here.

    To start with, the location was absolutely stunning ! Great Scenic View, the mountains and the river ! Absolutely Stunning. The Villa over it for truly a marvelous creation. The way the villa is designed is outstanding. The care taker was very kind and helped us out in everything. The Jacuzzi is one of the added attraction to the Villa. Pros: - Location - Ambience - Peaceful - Good Caretaker - Good Food Available in the Vicinity ( The villa does not offer food, but the caretaker helped us with good local food) Cons: - Heated Water in the Jacuzzi could have been more Better :) but it does not matter. Tips to other traveler: The google map might not help you till the villa. After Karnala Bird Sanctuary, you have to take a left turn. Just keep on driving ahead till you will see a Right turn. The villa is well visible from the turn.
