Quick Takeaways

  • Forget sitting at Marine Drive to watch crashing waves (we looovee that, too). Instead, enjoy unparalleled views of the Arabian Sea from your own verandah at SaffronStays Salt Rim on the Beach, a 2-bedroom pet-friendly villa on Korlai Beach in Kashid.
  • Though located 4 hours from Mumbai, you can now shorten your travel time and opt for a RoRo ferry service, which starts from Bhaucha Dhakka, Mumbai to Mandwa, Alibaug.  
  • The charming Goan-Portuguese influences in the home are reminiscent of the colonial time. 
  • The verandah of this home is where you’ll spend most of your time. It is unlikely that you'll skip the gorgeous sunset over the horizon.
  • This home has a loft in the living room that can accommodate more guests.
  • Take a stroll along the private sandy beach or organise an Enid Blyton-esque picnic on the lawn. With nothing but the moonlight to keep you company, it is perfect for a gang of friends or colleagues to reconnect. 
  • This home is also ideal for intimate social gatherings
  • Chat away into the night, gorging on hot Maharashtrian Fish Curry, made by our cooks and caretakers with freshly procured produce.  
  • Those looking for an extra dose of adventure, the short hike to the nearby Korlai Fort offers mesmerizing, panoramic views of the land and the sea. You can also opt for water sports at the nearby Kashid and Nagaon beaches.

Salt Rim is a beautiful 2 room bungalow right at edge of the sea in a relatively secluded and quiet area. The interiors are done up classily and maintained very well. It is an excellent base to explore the Kashid / Alibaug area. One can even walk down to the beautiful Korlai fort. The property had ACs in all room and DG support so despite the remoteness, no comfort is compromised. The caretakers live on the compound and whipped up good home-cooked meals. It should be kept in mind that the sea in front is rocky and probably not suitable for swimming but Korlai has a sandy beach. I visited with my spouse and her elderly parents and all in all, I would highly recommend this property. ...

This is a beach touch property which offers a surround sound effect of roaring sea waves. Totally isolated, but very closed to Alibaug-Murud road. Food is awesome and staff is humble. Do carry the required staff with you as there is no shops nearby. We carried fishes from market as the place serves only chicken in non-veg category. Liked this place a lot....

The showers were not working and the bed post carving was dusty. One of the bathrooms (bunkbed room) had the laminate peeling off the doors which could've been injurious. Rest was good. Staff was extremely courteous and responsive....

We were looking for a much needed break and being an old user of Saffron Stays properties we finalized this property for the vacation. It was a perfect gateway for the kind of break we were looking for. The villa is convenient to reach and located at a beautiful place. The food preparation was excellent and everything we ate was just awesome, food was something we were more worried for because we were travelling with kids but it turned out to be extremely satisfying. The villa is on a secluded place surrounded by hill, greenery and sea but is at close proximity to market place and very close to Kashid beach. This helped us to stay in a calm and soothing environment yet enjoy the beach sports and fun on Kashid beach which was nearby. The beach in front of the villa is good for early morning or evening walks but not so much for water play since its rocky. The overall experience was very good and am glad I took Saffron Stays services again and this time the experience was better then befo...

1) Beach sight not as expected, very rocky beach. 2) Living/dining hall was very warm, hence A/c is a must in the hall, especially when the doors of the balcony is closed in the evening to prevent insects from coming in. 3) Both the bathrooms require re-furbishing with shower curtains, as its very old and even the wash basin is not well placed. 4) Indoor games like carrom, chess and table tennis would have been an added feature. Even badminton net with rackets and shuttle cocks should have been a good idea. However, caretakers were very friendly and the food served was good. Overall we will rate as okay property. I will not recommend it to my friends in 'as it is'' condition. It's not a value for money property. Sudhakar Shetty ...

The location was gr8 i would say one of the best i have seen. another best part is there no mobile network to disturb.... only problem faced was with electricity.... wen we reached there was no power and power back up was not enough to run A/c or water heaters..... 10 mins drive from Kashid beach directions are accurate... another problem faced was on second day when without any info roads were dig for some cable work and the way to reach the villa was blocked.... however, Sanjay the caretaker immediately took us from another route to a point close to villa which was around 200 mtr walking distance. food was good service was good overall a very nice place to relax and njoy.......
