Awesome place to be at. I went there to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The place has a stunning 270degree view of the sea. You can cherish authentic Konkani food. We had chicken and fish thali and it was simply amazing. The place where the breakfast, lunch and dinner is served is at the top of the hill with a breadth taking view of the sea. It is a beautiful home stay with the facilities of a premium resort. The care taker Dnyanesh is helpful and takes good care of all the guests. I did my bookings for the Bungalow 2259 and Villa 270 through Saffronstays. I am really amazed by the overall experience. Ms. Megha called me 4 days before my scheduled stay to understand my requirements so that our stay was comfortable and with all our prompt co-ordination, the stay turned out to be pretty awesome. Heartiest thanks to her for all the help and for arranging the cake for the anniversary at the remote location....

About the Home

Perched on a cliff in Harnai, SaffronStays Villa 270° has 5 stunning cottages set against the backdrop of the Arabian Sea. From the villa, one can spy the Harnai fishing port and the famous Suvarnadurg sea fort on the left. Each of the 5 rooms can be booked individually.

Meals are served in a charming terrace-cum-dinning area where guests can dine while watching the sun dip below the horizon. A fully equipped modular kitchen allows guests to indulge in some truly delicious Konkani seafood delicacies.

Nestled among palm trees, SaffronStays Villa 270° is a unique blend of modern amenities and traditional decor. Designed in a stone age style, the villa has been constructed using only local materials such as old temple wood, local village stones, tiles, etc. in a bid to build a modern home while keeping the vernacular architecture alive. The 5 bedrooms: Shevanti, Sugandha, Aboli, Bakul & Jaswanti are named after Dapoli's native flowers which are included in the landscape of this property. The Jaswanti room (on the first floor) has a 350 sq. ft. open deck attached which could be used as a party deck in case of huge gathering.

Surrounded by sea view on all sides, SaffronStays Villa 270° gives you an amazing feeling of being exposed to the natural elements while relaxing in relative luxury of modern amenities.

Not only does this villa offer incredible panoramic views of the sea but it also has a quaint garden and a lovely man-made pond. Rustic seating areas have been placed around the pond, making it an ideal spot for reflection or meditation. Encouraging that journey inwards is an intricately carved 10-ft Buddha statue made of volcanic rock that sits at the centre of the pond. Brought in from Bali, these rustic artefacts add to the peaceful vibe of the villa.

At times, the locals around the villa have private celebrations for which they play music on speakers/live music. (Trust this to be part of your experience)
