About the Home

  • Standing on the edge of the cliff, looking out onto an endless expanse of water that stretches in three directions is the dreamy SaffronStays Villa 270° in Dapoli, just 239 kms from Mumbai.
  • This traditionally done set of 5 stunning sea-facing cottages are named after Dapoli’s exotic native flowers: Jaswanti, Bakul, Aboli, Sugandhi and Shevanti and can be booked individually. 
  • Bakul and Aboli are chirpy rooms, perfect for small families with furry friends with rustic interiors, traditional decor and all modern amenities.
  • A man-made lake carefully constructed by the homeowner and a landscaped garden peppered with native flowers afford plenty of spaces to read and rest.
  • The pet-friendly cottages have high-speed WiFi, making them an ideal workation close to Mumbai.
  • Catch up on family gupshup in the garden lawn or tuck into scrumptious konkani cuisine in the terrace-cum-dining area with panoramic views of the Arabian Sea. Our cook prepares home-cooked meals using locally sourced fresh ingredients, some must-trys of which are Kalya Vatanyachi Usal, Baingan bharta, Malvani fish, Mutton and Crab curries and Fish Fry
  • While you keep an eye out for black Pariah Kites that zoom past, hear the distant cries at the Harnai fishing port or drive to the Suvarnadurg Sea Fort just 15-minutes away. You can also head to Murud beach (3.5 kms) for water sports or the turtle breeding centre at Velas (49 kms).
  • Rent out this private villa near Mumbai for romantic weekend getaway with your better half,  workacations with extended families (3-4), an intimate Roka ceremony, or a sundowner with friends (upto 25 guests).

    It was a nice weekend Gateway although it's to much of travelling from Mumbai almost 7.30 mins till the destination, not only Shevanti and Sugandhi but the whole Villa 270° shares a spectacular Sea View. The Chef Mangesh is extremely hard working and prepares not only what u want but also makes delicious Konkani Food. All the Other Staff, Vijay and Santosh Mama are very caring and provided good Service. Although my stay was good i would just want a watchman atleast in the night as Shevanti and Sugandhi are very close to the road and its easy for mischief makers to access the place my sleep wasn't peaceful in the night. Thank you Saffron Stay

The chef makes excellent home cooked food and all the staff is very courteous I would love to recommend it to everyone who wants to have a peaceful holiday a d njoy the beautiful view of the sea.

    Villa 270 is at a fabulous location perched on a cliff, overlooking the sea with a 270degree view. With a rustic charm to the cottages and a Bali-sque feel to the landscape, it offers the perfect place to relax and unwind. A special call out to Mangesh (the chef), Vijay and Santosh, who went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable in every possible way and made a big difference to the entire experience. Mangesh, patiently understood our taste and food requirements (including meal timings) and churned out the most lip smacking dishes across cuisines - whether sea food, veg or non veg. His cooking was definitely the highlight of our stay. This is a must visit and we will definitely be coming back here soon...

    Beautiful property with panoramic views of the ocean and mountains. Just what we were looking for after a long hiatus in holidaying due to pandemic. The food was great and staff helpful. Though the rooms do need a good pest control. And the description on OTAs market the property as beachfront which is a bit misleading as there is no beach access. It does have great sea views. Overall we enjoyed our stay there thoroughly and would definitely recommend the place.

    The view is really amazing. Staff was very helpful. The caretaker Manoj and his staff and cheif Mangesh were excellent. Food was great. Next time will surely come for the higher villas. Only negatives in the experience was the village locals playing loud music distroying the peace and serenity.. there were small lizards in room but staff was quick to come and remove them.. having said that the view is totally worth it..

    Hi just back last night from Harnai. The staff is phenomenal and they deserve a pat on the back. Manoj is too prompt. There wasn’t internet, he personally looked into it and also offered that if WiFi doesn’t get started he would give his hotspot as my daughter had an inline test. Very cooperative. In general all the staff including the chef. Even helped me with a bowl of Chkn stalk for my puppy. Probably coz of the storm, landscape, rooms aren’t exactly as attractive as in the photos. Also shevanti, sugandhi sizes are tiny. Dining hall is closed. Our both bedrooms switches were getting sparks when connected. Kettle had no lid. So hell of scope to improve the basic infrastructure. Secondly we were expecting a typical Konkani cuisine veg and non veg both when the names also were u heard. Like I had to demand modak, we got one per head, small 5 ones and I bet I make better better. Kola che pohe, kola che bharit, kulith usal etc with lots of coconut is a Konkani food, I’m a koknastha Brahmin so I know well. Whatever they served was delicious so no complaints in the taste part but disappointment on the choice of foods in the menu. Even the fish the chef prepared was too good. We simple ate and ate. But NO KOKANI preparation. We didn’t have fruits enough for 5 people both the days. But overall a wonderful stay, sea view, non-Konkani food tastes. The staff is very kind and helpful and made our stay really comfortable.

    The only thing which we found that the Villa 270 is hard to find using google map . You’ll get confused from the location provided on google map. There’s no coverage for Airtel Jio . Only Vodafone and BSNL has coverage. Please save offline maps before you reach there . Rest of the things: Class

    We had a nice stay as usual at this property in Dapoli and the staff Manoj , chef Mangesh I think and his team took good care of us. The only think we didn’t like is the rooms we paid for didn’t have a fridge which is basic necessities that should come for the price being charged for the room.

    We stayed at Shevanti and Sugandhi. Rooms, staff all super. The location of the villa is mind blowing but you need to keep signboards. Also you should make it clear to guests that the common deck as advertised should not be captured for private use as other room guests did that to us.

    SaffronStays Care Team

    Hi Binal, Thank you for the feedback. Yes, the location of the villa is indeed stunning. I am happy you enjoyed the food and the service. The Verandah for these rooms is a shared one like it is clearly mentioned in the content and it was rather unfair if the other guests used it like a private verandah.

    A Hidden Gem camouflaged with lush greenery, perched on a cliff overlooking the Arabian ocean with a breathtaking 270 degree panoramic view is usually the talk of glamorous Travel shows on television !! ...It was all worth a rather longish winding drive of nearly 8 hrs from Mumbai along the expressway and highway carving through the coastal belt of Maharashtra. The enchanting destination called Dapoli interspersed with greenery, hills and the blue sea , each competing to vie for your attention, suddenly opened up itself as if a curtain was just drawn away from the serenaded blanket of blissful visual delight... Leading up to the doorstep of our holiday villa for the weekend was a deck that opened up our eyes to infinite possibilities with a view that captured our imagination and engulfed all our senses... Time stood still, away from the bustling megapolis, and the mind swayed along with the canopy that seemed lazily floating away in the far horizons of the sea .. To add to
