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 before. Thank You team for being such a good hosts and providing excellent service....read more
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 ...read more
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.......read more
