    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.

    25 Feb 2021

    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 !

    22 Feb 2021

    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!

    20 Feb 2021

    Location very beautiful and a quite, cosy corner. Nice place for walks, relaxing, yummy meals, family bonding and games.

    20 Feb 2021

    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.

    16 Feb 2021

    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.

    13 Feb 2021

    We were charged additional money for room cleaning which was not discussed before nor brought to our notice. May I know the reason.

    10 Nov 2020

    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 .

    02 Nov 2020

    It’s was nice and pleasant stay

    21 Oct 2020

    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

    24 May 2019

    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

    28 Feb 2019

    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 ! .

    13 Feb 2019

    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.

    31 Aug 2018

    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.

    30 May 2018

    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.

    19 Jul 2017

    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.

    09 Jun 2017

    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.

    09 Jun 2017

    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.

    09 Jun 2017

    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.

    02 May 2017

    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.

    28 Feb 2017

    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.

    27 Dec 2016

    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.

    14 Dec 2016

    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.

    14 Dec 2016

    This is an awesome place with great scenic view, space, comfort and hospitality. Highly recommended
