    It's a nice secluded place but pretty far away from most restaurants and activities in Alibaug. Terrible approach road and overpriced

    Not worth 7k as concept of glass room is good but it's built on water tank also when water is getting refilled in tank early morning it disturbs sleep of guest. It's worth 2000.

    The furnitures and furnishing were very sub standard for the money which.was charged and there was no water and tea as complimentary which is basic. I loved the farm experience though.

    The property is a good place for bonding with friends and family with a variety of games. Well maintained and clean. Staff at the property was very courteous and helpful. The washroom for the glass room is not attached and one has to climb one floor down to access the same. This is not mentioned in the description of the property on the website hence, we faced great difficulty specially with women to visit the washroom in the night time. The sales team at the time of booking and post booking was very rude and not at all helpful for resolving the issue or even compensation for the miss information / lack of information and handled the matter very unprofessionally. Highly disappointed with the behaviour of the reservations team.

    The staff was polite and helpful and the property was nice and peaceful. I would say that the breakfast choices could be improved. Instead of white bread, please offer multigrain bread options and also muesli. We also wanted tea bags for tea which were not available. Either please provide a tea coffee kettle in the room or the staff should be able to give English breakfast tea made from a tea bag.

    Ideal for families with children enjoying open and natural play areas. Two cottages are wonderfully laid out and offers lot of landscape/ play area / open spaces for children across age group. Well curated spaces for play area, swimming pool, lawn area, badminton courts, archery etc. Property location is remote and little far from beaches. But if you are doing get together, then this ideal place. Courteous staff and prompt services deserves clap.

    The property was at a secluded location, in the midst of nature and exactly the way we like it. The staff was very friendly and served our needs with a smile. The food was good. They also guided us for local sight seeing as well as all the things we needed from outside as well. The only thing that could have been better was that the rooms were very far apart. Closer rooms would have been better for 3-4 families together.

    Wonderful place. We visited in the monsoon. It had lush greenery around alongwith well maintained rooms. We got fresh linen daily. The meals are fingerlicking good. The glass room offers amazing view of the surrounding fields. Nagaon beach, Korlai fort and beach are all easily accessible. The staff is polite and welcoming. The only drawback is the washroom which although private but is out of the room. But u completely forget that when the hot and powerful shower makes u feel fresh and revived. Will definitely recommend!

    Good break from the city- the farm has a nice charm about it. The caretakers are very nice and cooked the most delicious home cooked food. The place could be maintained well as it had too many leaks and water logging; overall we had a pleasant stay

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Sudharshana, Thank you for your review. We're immediately looking into the issues you described above. Glad you had a relaxing stay with us. Please book with us some time again, cannot wait to host you again. :)
