    Had a great experience at the treehouse! Madhuri and ashok (the caretakers) were humble at their best. The meal cooked by Madhuri was truly delicious. The view was just breathtaking. Anyone reading this, I truly recommend this place to visit atleast once!

    Excellent property that has been maintained really well. Clean and neat and really convenient. Food is really excellent - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. It is secluded and away from the main commercial area. Ideal place to come and relax. View is very unique and beautiful. Located right on the edge of the valley and the property is really beautiful.

    One of the best properties in Panchgani. The treehouse has uninterrupted view of almost 360degree. Makes it idea for sunrise and sunsets watching. The treehouse is a part of a bigger villa, which makes it much nicer. Has the most beautiful garden that I have ever seen. But best part is the staff. Right amount of courteous and friendly. Madhuri- cook, makes amazing food. I’d recommend try her authentic marathi food. Santosh- will make sure you have the most comfortable stay. Pros- food, location, staff, jacuzzi, view Cons- absolutely none.

    Veranda by the valley was fairy tail experience, weather had changed with rain all over making the place blissful. Best part is the location and view from tree house. Adding to it the caretaker and its family made us feel at home cooking delicious meal. We had great time. Having said that tree house has washroom outside the room in the patio abt 10 meters and it can be difficult situation in night due tons of insects and bats flying right outside the room in the patio, may be something can be worked around it.

    A comparable SaffronStays experience. Great view, excellent home-cooked meals, friendly staff, and more. About Treehouse - 1. Cozy place for 2 2. Nice view of the valley and garden 3. Washroom is adjacent to the room and one must go from the porch that requires a little bit of adjustment especially during nights.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Swapnil, Thank you for your insightful feedback. We're happy to know about your pleasant stay with us. Your review will help us improve our guest experience for the future. We look forward to hosting you again!

    We loved our stay at the treehouse. The view is breathtaking; especially when the clouds takeover. The only sounds you can hear are that of birds chirping or the bells around the bulls neck when they walk by in a distance. The landscaping and the variety of plants at the property deserve a mention - the garden is tastefully done and looks beautiful. You could spend hours just admiring that. The staff is kind, helpful and make homely meals served with generosity. Big shout out to Santosh, the care taker for ensuring we have the best experience. The Saffron Stays staff checked in on us multiple times - appreciate that. All in all a great experience and highly recommend if you want to celebrate peace and nature! 😌😌

    This was a special stay and we loved every bit of it, right from the views to the privacy of the treehouse. The caretaker couple, Santosh and Madhuri made sure we come again and again and Mahesh and his team were on point and helpful. We will certainly be back again. This was an experience and very different from our usual luxury escapades and it was a holiday we shall not forget for a long time.

    17 Aug 2021

    The view from the property was mesmerizing. The staff was very helpful and polite and considerate. Food was excellent and tasty. Few improvements required: 1. Heater in the room is a must. As the wooden floor, bed and beddings, towels everything is very cold in rainy and winter season. 2. A hair dryer near sink would be good addition in the facilities. 3. Room freshners in the bathroom is a must as it smells damp and stinky. 4. Adding some books, games would be helpful as there isn't much that you can do on a rainy day or in the evenings post 7pm as it's dark outside and there are too many insects bugs that won't let you sit outside so you are stuck in a small room. Also there are not many places nearby to visit. 5. Shouldn't charge additional 500 rupees for jacuzzi each time as the room charges are already quite high I.e. 8k per day and there are no other facilities/activities for entertainment on the property. So charging additional fees for the only facility that is available is little unfair.

    My stay at saffronstays verandah by the valley tent panchgani was amazing . The much awaited break if you need from day today hectic life you would get it at this place . The location of this place is just mind blowing away from city chores , your in surrounded by sound of nature . Early morning your greeted with beautiful and serene sunrise with birds chirping. Caretaker Santosh and wife took great care of us and treated us with delicious food . The only negative I would say about this place is the roads a km before reaching this place , the roads are so bad and filled with gravels that I had an puncture when reached there. So need it to careful and get ur tyres checked before coming here . Enjoyed our stay here and will definitely would come back here.

    It was an amazing n surreal experience. There r niggles that one can talk about as there is nothing that can be perfect, but would not like to talk about it here, as the overall experience was stupendous..the place, the upkeep, the service, cleanliness and the efforts to make guests feel good and comfortable can all be given a 12/10. The caretakers Mr & Mr. Santosh and Mr. Vaibhav needs to be commended - they r simply outstanding in their service. Factors that are beyond your control such as the access road etc are the only niggles.

    An excellent place to stay with a very beautiful valley view. Specially the tent stay was amazing. no need of an alarm clock as the birds wake u up early morning for the beautiful sunrise view. Everything about the stay here was perfect. And what made verandah by the valley perfect place to stay is the caretaker. Justifies the real meaning of the word. Caretaker was on toes to give us everything we wanted with a smiling face. Cooked delicious food served it properly. We felt as is we were home and they are a part of our family. Thank u saffron stays for making our vacation wonderfull. We have got very gud memories. Tag line is just perfect where families bond 👍😊

    Tent location is really great and view of the valley is marvellous. You need not visit any other valley view points if you book this property. We enjoyed stay of 2 days and wished if we could stay more ! Only one thing that one needs to see is access to this property. We did not have any problem though

    Fantastic view , once in a lifetime experience. Nestled in a quiet village in an isolated end of Panchgani this stay brings you as close to nature as possible. An off roading trip leads you to this stay where welcoming hosts vaibhav and Santosh take care of all your requirements. Delicious hot local food is freshly cooked in house and served to your little tree tent House. The tent is neat and clean and the bathroom is also kept tidy and dry. Enjoy beautiful sunset and sunrise from the tent balcony. I genuinely recommend this stay to all.

    The best thing about this property, are the caretakers. Santosh and Vaibhav are polite, sweet, courteous and ever eager to make you feel comfortable. The simple yet delicious home made food was perfect and generous, in terms of portion. The meals were prepared as per our request and taste. The view from the tent is soothing and amazing. The tent has been well maintained and unlike most places, the jacuzzi actually does work. We are keen to go back, this time with our familes for a stay at the Villa. The road to reach there, can be tricky and hence I'd suggest you have a word with Santos before you begin the journey. He'll be kind enough to guide you appropriately.
