10 Guests for an overnight stay, 25 guests for day event.

Plz keep kitchen clean to dirty
Great place. Comfortable stay. Extra bed could be better.
We recommend getting the hanging beds down before sleeping otherwise you might wake up with a headache the next day. Otherwise its a well made property at a great location.
We had 6 worries when going to riverrock for our 5 day holiday getaway 1. Property won't be as good as the pictures and videos show it is. (photographers have a way of making things look nicer sometimes). We were surprised to find the property for real was just as good if not better. Totally worth it. 2. We couldn't understand if the water body next to it is an actual river or just a glorified nalla. We were surprised to find it is an actual river. Though a polluted one with villagers washing their clothes in it but still a good water body (for mumbai standards) to sit and stare at in the evenings. 3. We were worried about the food. They said no kitchen and no cook. So we thought for 5 days we will have to get food from nearby restaurants. Surprisingly we had the best food EVER at this property. There is a "mausi" who lives next door that cooks home cooked meals of your choice. We couldnt get enough of it. Almost want to go back just for the food! Very hygienic. Very tasty. Very homely. Priced like a restaurant(One sabji around 300 rupees). But large proportions and totally worth it. (Also... They do have a kitchenette... Sufficient to heat my kids milk or a quick coffee or tea or maggi when we wanted) 4. We were worried about this being so close by to panvel and mumbai that it won't really feel like a getaway. Surprisingly it has a wall built around the property that genuinely makes you feel secluded even though you're in the middle of a village. 5. We thought we would get bored. Given covid we didn't want to venture out to crowded places. But we visited the bird sanctuary close by. As well as the animal farm. Our 4 year old loved seeing all the farm animals and birds. They surprisingly even had iguanas! 6. We weren't sure about the caretaker. Having good service can always be a make or break. I think in all the stays we have ever had... Arjun is most definitely the best caretaker we have ever seen. And yes that's quite a statement to make. Super helpful. Super positive. Makes the whole experience significantly better. So all in all a surprisingly great experience! We see ourselves going back for sure. Things to watch out for. 1. There are swing beds. Takes a bit getting used to but towards the end we started enjoying it. 2. The extra matresses they have are a sofa cum bed which is worn out. We had friends over for a night and their stay was uncomfortable. 3. Don't buy chocolate and ice cream from shops nea
Great stay . Better extra beds will be appreciated.
Was a lovely stay. The caretaker was very helpful.
It was great experience. Meals need to be ordered but they are tasty and worth the money. Well trained staff and utmost cleanliness. Overall great ambience and close to nature serene location that uplifts your mood and reboots you. Thank you team saffronstays
Very nice super property
Privacy is enjoyable
The food and electricity was fluctuating
Great place and a great care taker
Lights has been frequently going...very bad experience,,,as it has only the villa to relax no nearby outing..without power how can anyone survive...very unpleasent stay
The villa is really beautiful. But overall the villa is a must-visit.
Very nice place for friends and family specially in rainy and winter season...
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.
Absolutely wonderful experience.. Great place for couple...Staff was polite and courteous.. Would love to go again..
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
Awesome place, beautiful view. Enjoyed alot.
It was a pleasure to stay at SaffronStays River Rock, lovely ambiance, very well maintained and very homely given by the caretaker's. We would lovely to recommend this place to our friends.
The stay was very pleasant, he food was good. Maintenance, quality & interiors were good. Thank you.
Beautiful location, Aesthetically done house.Very restful experience. Prem & Kamla (caretaker's) are diligent and keep a clean house. They are attentive,co-operative and friendly. The games are a good addition and also the jacuzzi. Loved the Ambiance! Thank you SaffronStays!!
It was a very nice experience. Villa is very beautiful and and worth the stay. Caretaker prem and kamala were very helpful and kind. They were very caring and food served was very tasty. Overall it was very well spent weekend.
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.
