About the Home

  • Tucked away on the secluded and widespread Akshi beach, SaffronStays Summer Salt is a 6-bedroom pet-friendly pool villa in Alibaug. 
  • The home embraces nature to the fullest and allows the gentle ocean breeze to waft into the interiors through the 17 doors. This thoughtful old-world architecture with high ceilings makes this vacation home in Alibaug seamless and breezy. 
  • There are 4 bedrooms (one interconnected bedroom) on the ground floor, which makes the home ideal for senior citizens. 5 out of 6 bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom, with each one of them allowing nature in while imparting a sense of belongingness and warmth
  • The home exhibits a vintage vibe with its fine use of Parsi and colonial-style furniture subtly mixed with modern furnishings
  • The library is a curated collection of must-reads set up in the corner of the living room. Nosedive into stories from your favourite writers while sipping on some chai. 
  • In 1979, the home had 2 bedrooms and its interiors were built using the rustic Malal stone. It was extended in 1987 using the same Malal stone and 4 more bedrooms were built along with the dining room and the pool. 

The caretaking staff in this private beach estate has been working here for over 4 decades.
