Very beautiful view from the Verandah, possibly the best view in Panchgani. House keeper and his family a very nice and sweet people. Extremely hars working and helpful. The approach road to Villa is a serious concern and need immediate solution. The village needs many signs of the Villa for easy navigation. Beautiful Villa and very well maintained.
Had an amazing time at the property. It has fantastic views, great clean food and a very comfortable vibe. Caretakers are very sweet and helpful.
Caretaker Sanjay & Madhuri are excellent ! They took care of us very well. Liked the well maintained garden Car parking area needs to be broadened & extended to help parking of a larger cars.
Very good property with serene view. Caretaker couple is very caring and they served delicious food. Suggest to keep kettle, tea bags and coffee sachets in the room so that guests can serve themselves tea/coffee early morning if needed.
Beautifully located property with impeccable caretakers and cook who maintain a very high standard of cleanliness. Santosh and Madhuri took very good care. Home cooked maharashtrian meals by Madhuri were supremely delicious. The gaderns and lawns were landscaped and maintained very nicely. While we have visited Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar multiple times, our stay at Verandah by the valley was by far the best experience. Don’t miss the sunrise and the cool morning breeze at their viewing deck in the garden.
Washrooms need major renovation. blankets need to be more heavy considering the winter season. 5 stars for The staff and the home cooked food.
Lovely villa. The huge verandha & deck with the wonderful view make it awesome. Staff - Santosh & Madhuri r excellent. Warm , yet discreet .
Beautifully maintained with great landscape home and very caring staff.
Superb staff, great garden n landscape, amazing breathtaking view. Everything was good except the inside of the home. The rooms were ill maintained with water seepage and several patches on the walls. The interiors need upgrading for sure. The water heater needed a song and dance to work. I will not reduce the rating only because the staff was so good. Santosh and Madhuri were very hospitable and friendly. The food Madhuri cooked was superlative. Kudos to both of them. But the property is in dire need for repairs . Saffron needs far more stringent protocols to check if the owner is giving what is promised and shown in the pictures. The price we paid for place is not worth for that one reason.
Comfortable stay, caring staff and relaxing atmosphere. Special thanks to Mahesh for ensuring that we are well looked after. Santosh our caretaker and Madhuri made sure that our needs were met and fed us with delicacies.

It was an amazing 2 day stay in this villa. The location is beautiful and perfect for small family. The property is at edge of the cliff and has a great view. Both caretakers are extremely humble and serve us well. I would love to take my family again.

Greetings, thank you for your feedback, we look forward to hosting you again!
EXCELLENT VIEW from the veranda is the highlight of the place. We stayed in the villa from 29th to 1st Oct21. There is a very strategically located gazebo at the edge of the property with lovely views of the valley.We got to see some spectacular sunrise! The caretaker Santosh & his wife Mahduri are very caring & cook very tasty Maharashtrian food as per your liking. Santosh is very cooperative and attends to all your requests. The villa has all amenities - books ,cardboard, well appointed living room. There is a loft in the living room where two persons can sleep. We liked it so much that we have booked again . That speaks volumes. Saffran stays representative also visits & checks that you are comfortable & if you have any problems. A good customer service. Appreciated !

This was a wonderful experience, was initially hesitant as I had two infants , but Santoshji and Madhuri Tai totally made us feel at home, food is exceptional , hospitality by the couple is out of this world , property is out of this world ! Loved every bit of our stay , couldn’t be possible without the caring and hospitable nature of Santosh and Madhuri ! Will be coming here again ! Special thanks to MR Mahesh , who was guiding us right from the start ! Coming back soon ! Thank you !
Can have better lights inside the bedrooms and bathrooms
Fantastic property. Shubham and Mahesh were very helpful and Shubham came all the way to guide us to the property as we lost our way. Superb hospitality. Santosh and Madhuri took excellent care of everything. Must visit. Will come again for sure.
We had an amazing time. The property is very tastefully decorated and well maintained. And the location and ambience is spectacular. Many thanks to Manish, Shubham and Santosh for such a memorable time.
Great Place. It was our second visit. Mahesh and Team did a great job and everything was fabulous.
Will come back Again & Again
We had an excellent 2 night stay at Verandah by the Valley. Service is impeccable. Food was excellent.
Very awesome property.. surely will visit again
Amazing Place. Best views you can think of. Mesmerising location. Best place in Mahabaleshwar to destress yourself. Excellent service provided by Santosh and Family. They were too good.
One of the best memories I am going to have thanks to this location, and the beautiful villa. The staff was also cordial and food was great. I am definitely going to come back. I would highly recommend this place.
We had a wonderful stay at verandah by valley. Property is well maintained and caretaker santosh & madhuri takes good care of your needs. Food is like home and santosh takes care of all the requirements. View from the villa is exceptional. Must visit place
Amazing view, friendly staff and the villa is awesome. I visited with my family and my kids had a great time. The road to the villa is very bad but once u reach the villa the trouble seems worth it..
We had a great stay. Everything was perfect. The gardens and verandah are so beautiful with the best view imaginable. The food was homey and very tasty. We will definitely come back again. Just the approach road near the villa is quite bad. Car almost got stuck at one point. Maybe can fix that for the future! Cheers!
The staff went above and beyond. Santosh and Madhuri were excellent hosts and their attention was great. Always willing to help and never saying no. The owners need to shore up the bathrooms and also deal with various leaks. This is important and should be done quickly. The view is stunning and together with the staff is the highlight of the villa.
One of the best properties in Panchagani and probably the best if you are looking for peaceful time with an amazing view. Photos don't do justice and the views of the valley is amazing. Its clean and very well maintained and to top it off, the house staff's were very sweet and helpful, especially santosh. Food is good, especially the local cuisine. Will definitely visit again.
Though quite a bit pricey, it was really a wonderful and pleasant stay.
It was an excellent experience and the weather has added essential charm into the awesome property at great location.
It was a great experience overall. The food and hospitality by the caretaker Santosh and his wife were outstanding. View from the property was marvellous. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
Awesome place, nothing much to complain.
We loved our stay!
The location is perfect. Staff is very friendly. The villa is clean and well maintained. Though there are some leakage issues in one of the bathroom. But overall awesome experience
My 5 star rating says it all! Excellent location,, excellent staff , beautiful house and delicious home cook food.
Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones.
I stayed for one day less due to covid,my mother.looking forward for response from vijay
Amazing location! loved our family stay there, the home cooked meals just added to the awesome experience
"Dear Niddhi, Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones."
This is a awesome property. Great view and kind staff. Good home cooked food is the best with old parents and kids. Walking around the village and visiting straberry farms were added fun.
"Dear Khyati, Thank you for taking out the time to review us. We're glad you had a memorable stay. We hope you give us another chance to host you and your loved ones."
The property is lovely with a great view. The staff is very helpful and efficient. We had a very comfortable stay.
Lovely stay. Wonderful, kind, warm staff. Booking was a breeze. Everything was perfect.
The location of the villa Verandha by the Valley, Panchgani is mind-blowing and the caretakers Santosh and Madhuri were really warm and welcoming. They prepared all our meals as per our preference and kept the villa extremely clean also the guidance that they provided regards to nearby places was very helpful.
The stay at Verandah by the Valley was excellent. The location is everything I was told it was. The bungalow itself although basically done up had an outstanding verandah where we spent most of our time thanks to the good weather. The caretaker Santosh and his wife were outstanding hosts. They served us excellent meals with great enthusiasm warmth and hospitality. They maintain the place wonderfully and are well informed and helpful. Internet dongles of both Airtel and Jio worked super for us. Will certainly be back as not only was the place great but the caretaker and his family raised the place to outstanding. !! Kudos to them !
The place is so beautiful it literally lives up to its name. Breathtaking views, simple delicious home cooked meals, doting staff and very clean all around. Add to that family and friends and it's a recipe for a magical vacation! We truly enjoyed our time here!
Location very beautiful and a quite, cosy corner. Nice place for walks, relaxing, yummy meals, family bonding and games.
Amazing location and a very creatively designed villa. Best part is the lovely flower garden which makes the place extremely colorful. Caretaker is super helpful.
Verandah by the valley is a great place to relax and rewind with family. The location is one of the most beautiful and serene in Panchgani. The property is very well maintained. The staff is courteous and serve delicious home cooked food. Must visit weekend getaway.
We were charged additional money for room cleaning which was not discussed before nor brought to our notice. May I know the reason.
Great visit, brillaint food and awesome service by Santosh and his family
Very well managed property. And the caretakers Santosh and Madhuri take good care of you all through.
Excellent stay and property too !
The view from the property was beautiful... Worth a stay!!!
Beautiful view and really sweet caretakers!
Amazing property with extra amazing caretakers. The time spent was very memorable away from the normal city life’s. Food will be served as per your wish but it will be totally home made food. Santosh and Madhuri caters to all your requirements.
It was an awesome experience. Thanks team Saffron Stay .
Spectacular place, most beautiful view and excellent staff
It was a perfect stay ... the view is unparalleled and Santosh and his wife understand instructions and deliver brilliantly.... the food was exactly as per instructions non spicy and tasteful . The only thing we would have ideally liked is more comfortable and bigger beds .
It’s was nice and pleasant stay
Verandah by the Valley Panchgani is an Excellent property having all the require comforts in the villa , the ONLY MUST !! thing which is missing is the Security Guard which is a MUST in this property as it is very remote in Panchgani and close to dense forest , the place is very dark in the night !!
Excellent property and staff
Hi, The Stay was overall good as far as location was considered and pictures shown has displayed the Villa accurately. Related to care taker the person appointed was quite friendly but his wife was not that cooperative enough. The food quality served was not that worthy and service provided while serving the food was too poor. We had to take follow up number of times for chapatis and were also not served in enough quantity and had to adjust with other food items as if we were served for free. Hence, The food quality and service was totally not worth the price . Also the total worth of Villa would get justified only if the rental applied are brought down to minimal range else it leads to unsatisfactory experience. Unlike Lavasa stay in January we have not faced these issues related to food service and quality which led me to book for second time with Saffron Stays. But after this average or not so good experience despite of booking the high range Villa I would have to think twice bef
We had stayed at the VERANDAH first week of Feb '19 and true to their ( Saffron's ) website details the property and the ease and friendly booking with Saffron made it all really nice. Several travelers have given their reviews on the VERANDAH which we found true . We thoroughly enjoyed our stayand for sure look forward to other equally stunning holidays through Saffron ! .
We enjoyed quite a lot, the house us beautiful with amazing views..spent most of our time outdoors. The kids enjoyed a lot. Both Santosh the caretaker and his wife were good with their service, very friendly people. The food they cooker was also delicious.
We enjoyed our trip...the bunglow was good and the caretaker both husband and wife are good people...also liked the food served by them.
It was an over satisfying experience for our family. We liked the facilities and attention of the host/ caretaker Santosh Malusare and his family. We are happy we chose this gateway and look forward to more similar experiences during our next holiday. Good effort by Saffron Stays Team.
The property is located in Godavali village near Panchgani. The property is breathtakingly beautiful and offers amazing views from every corner. it has 2 bedrooms with attached big clean bathrooms. The caretakers Mr Santosh Malusare and his wife are very welcoming and they sure know how to keep their guests happy. They cook lip smacking tasty homemade food. Once you step inside you wouldnt want to go out from the property. Kid and elder friendly. it has good books, kids games inlcluding Jenga. Everything about the property is just WOW! will love to go back again.
Its a beautiful and remote place. Great view. Villa is splendid. The road to leading to the place is a little bad and can be worse in the rains. We visited in July first week and were kind of relieved it had not rained or our car would be stuck in the slush. The property is just mind blowing and caretakers are very friendly and nice. Food they serve is homely and nice. Cost is also very affordable. We had a great time and felt totally relaxed at the end of our stay.
It was an amazing experience. The location and place is beautiful. The caretakers are very friendly and hospitable. The last couple of yards of the approach road is rough and hence during monsoon it could be a trouble. But once you reach the place, it is like coming back home.
Two days of stay over here which is close to nature was an amazing experience. This is the right place for relaxing and unwinding. A very well maintained property with good amenities. Enjoyed the tasty homely food. This can be a best choice for a family get together if any one is opting Panchgani for an outing.
The property is lovely. It has great views. Well maintained. Suitable for families / friends... Good collection of book to reads / games for kids to play. Awesome food by caretaker. Good caretaker. Informative, friendly. Thumbs up..!
If you are from a city and want to escape the perpetual mindlessness, then just go here. As the name suggests, you will not be disappointed by the Verandah. Relax, sit down with a drink, and just stare into the endless horizon. It is beautiful, simply put. The sunrise is even better (this is testimony under oath from a lazy bugger). There are two rooms, but, they can accommodate more people. The stay is homely; you get good home-cooked meals courtesy the caretaker, Santosh, and his wife. Santosh is a great host and helped us by putting up a fire in the chilly night around which we spent most of our time. The place is adjacent to a village and the tranquility will make you clamor for more in your daily life. The rooms are basic--not much fanfare there. But, they are comfortable. I think a little amount of refurbishing in one bathroom (which I heard is due soon) will help in the days to come. Simply put, a great experience. Like the name suggests, it is one peaceful place to spen
We had a really great stay, the helpers are very helpful and accommodating. The place is beautiful, and the view is breathtaking. The road to reach there is a little rocky, so you have to be careful of that. You can also visit the locally owned strawberry farms and other farms too.
This review has been long pending from my end...!!! I visited verandah in Feb '17 for SaffornStays' weekend strawberry fest. We reached the place really early at 5:30am on a Saturday by the bus & the organizer, Vinda was already up to drive us to the place from the bus depot. This place is wonderful & helps you chillax whenever you go. There are multiple corners at this home like the swing, terrace, sofa in the verandah where you can sit for hours, look at the view, do nothing & yet feel happy. We were joined later by the chef, Sai & owner of SaffornStays Tejas. The place, program participants & organizers were extremely approachable & made us feel home. Vinda even gave her car to us for a visit to the market as we had no vehicle. The cooking session was fun followed by lots of tasty food & start gazing from the terrace. The highlight of this program was fresh strawberry picking from the strawberry farm! The best vacation is that which has a beautiful
Verandah by the Valley is placed in a gorgeous location. Although it was the peak of summer, the extreme didn't hit us as much. The staff was so warm and attentive, we'll surely come back again in the Monsoon.
Our stay at the Villa was outstanding. The Villa is placed beautifully on the hilltop with mesmerising view of the breathtaking mountains which was the most relaxing & stressfree moment for us. The view is so very outstanding which cannot be expressed in words. You need to stay at the villa at least once to realise its beauty. The morning sunrise was amazing. Best interiors and well maintained property. The home made food prepared by the caretakers was yummy & delicious. Caretakers were so simple, friendly and helpful, they really deserve a big THANK YOU. Really appreciated. Nearby farms were also very beautiful. We must say, this was one of the most memorable & mesmerising stay at Verandah. We enjoyed a lot and will cherish & treasure these beautiful memories forever. We would surely like to come again to stay at this beautiful Villa. Last but not the least, our only feedback to the coordinators is that they should attend customers calls promptly and not juz communica
'Verandah by the Valley' is a very apt name for this beautiful place. Calm and decent, this is the perfect getaway from the daily hustle bustle of the city. Given its size, the Verandah is best suited for group of 4 or more, but even couples can spend some private time here like we did on our 9th anniversary. Friendly host, a very helping and lovely care taker family, excellent facilities, and more than anything else, the captivating scenic beauty of the location makes the stay a most memorable one. Definitely one of the best places I have been to (and I have been to quite a few). Most recommended to anyone looking to spend some quality time in nature's lap.
Located on the edge of the valley Verandah has an amazing view. It was a perfect get away for my wife and me.The villa is clean and beautiful. The caretaker is friendly and thanks to Saffronstays for their extended courtesy during our stay.
I went to Verandah by the Valley with my friends and family for my birthday weekend. The location is slightly difficult to find and the road is not paved. But once you reach there, you will not want to leave! The place is as beautiful as in the pictures. The caretakers are great and went out of their way to make the stay comfortable. The hosts also called and checked if we were fine and needed anything. The place is clean and the location is great. Its a great place to be away from the city hustle bustle. I wish we had more days to spend.
I visited during week day and I loved the stay there. We wanted a peaceful and homely stay during our this short vacation and we got it. The morning sunrise is something which I always wanted to see and it was picture perfect. It had homely food and the caretaker really took good care of us. I was travelling with a senior citizens and a kid and it was quite easy to manage both.
This is an awesome place with great scenic view, space, comfort and hospitality. Highly recommended
