    One of the best cottage ever stayed. Location is excellent and 270 degree view of the sea is absolutely fantastic. Staffs were very helpful and cordial. Caretaker Vijay was always helpful. Chef Mangesh is one of the best cook. He made variety of lip-smacking food which we thoroughly enjoyed from breakfast to dinner. We will surely come back again at Villa 270 to relax in Dapoli.

    This was our perfect weekend gateway. Felt like being in heaven sitting in hill top, surrounded by sea. Even the journey from Mumbai to this place was so good: Road less travelled. The weather was perfect: rainy and windy which made our stay all the more pleasant. The wifi worked only at certain places and mobile network doesn't really work much. Vodafone might still get some network. That was a boon as we were totally detached from the chaos of life. The food was super super delicious and the staff was very courteous and polite. Would highly recommend this place and I would love to come back. My husband and I stayed in Bakul. If possible, book for Bakul/ Aboli/ yeshwanti than Shevanti and Sugandhi. They are at higher floors in ascending order. So You get a better view.

    The pictures don't do justice to how brilliant the views are from the room balconies and the outdoor eating space. This must be one of the most scenic and well designed houses anywhere in India (especially if you love sea views). Built progressively higher on to a mountainside overlooking Anjarle beach, the rooms are simple but sufficient and clean. The staff is helpful and the food is simple but tasty. The beach is a 10 minute drive from the property but we found Anjarle beach dirty and muddy, while Karde beach (a 30 minute drive) was cleaner (albeit not very clean probably due to this being the monsoon season). Loved the fact that it was a pet friendly place with little restriction on the movement of my dog (there is a large and aggressive dog on the premises who pet owners should be careful of). Overall, great place which ticks all the boxes (and with killer views) and one we would love to come back to.

    The place, the staff and scenic view is simply awesome. The road to the place is good, few bumps here and there, but no complains. Perfect place to just relax and chill and enjoy the weather. The staff comprising of Mangesh, Mayur, Santosh and Vijay were simply amazing and have done a great job to keep the property up-to-date. Have just reached back into Mumbai, shall be sending a extended feedback by tomorrow.

    Breathtaking view of Arabian sea- whichever direction you see- from a cliff, overlooking tiny fishermens' villages of Harnai on one side and Anjarle on the other side of a river meeting the ocean that makes this place an amazing destination for a short vacay- with family and friends or even for honeymooners. You'll get one of the best food. If you are a fish lover, there's no place other than this one, for a fresh catch- viz. Kingfish, Pomfret,  Mackerel,  prawns. But the most exciting delicacies are Oysters and Crabs. Chef Mangesh Jadhav has an amazing taste in his hands. Whatever he cooks is just superb- you have to witness it to believe it. Attendants Santosh Indulkar and Vijay dont allow you to call them for any services- they are always there for you whenever you need them. The place is very near to and overlooking  Anjarle and Harnai, Harnai fort, Suvarnadurg.  Anjarle is a beautiful  village, worth exploring by a walking trip. In short the trip is worth an every penny you spend

Only downside was pathetic roads once you leave Mumbai Goa Highway, but all your pains will vanish the moment you enter the property with an overlooking arabian sea. Memorable trip.

    Loved our stay at Villa 270. Great location, lovely rooms, beautiful views and hospitable staff. Staff is all local but well-trained and their service is prompt and unobtrusive. Meals are home-cooked and delicious. Although we would have liked some variety in desserts (we had the same for each of the 4 meals we had). Beach lovers need to note that the beaches are a short drive away - but well worth the time taken in getting there.

    Location , food, staff everything is very nice.. but the villas needs renovation. Damp walls were big no for me as I was travelling with a toddler... also the tariff are very high.. prices just don't justify. With the same price i would rather go for a 5 star property. Special Mention - Cook Mangesh is extraordinary.. he made such delicious food.. special thanks 👍👏

    All in all a pleasant stay with the family. Villa 270 is not luxurious but it is just right in its own quirky way. The team is great especially Mangesh and Manoj. The food by Mangesh was fantastic local cuisine. Simple but great food. Had all meals in-house. Room cleanliness was decent though could be better, just a matter of training the team. A few maintenance issues that also need to be addressed. The view of course lives up to the Villa’s name, absolutely fantastic, at least from our rooms. There are beautiful beaches around which one must visit. Anjarle was our favorite! Be prepared for no phone signal which is not a bad thing unless you need Google maps😀Villa has wifi in certain areas. My only negative impression was the blaring music that played all night on both nights from the village below. Sleep was elusive. Avoid going during wedding season!!

    This place has breathtaking views of the endless sea, Anjarle beach on one side and Fort Suvarnadurga on the other side... 270 degree view indeed, that too from the top of a hill!One can sit for hours and watch the sea waves gently crashing the beach and the waters merging into the horizon. The sunset views are mesmerizing. The property has been tastefully landscaped. Kudos to the staff (Manoj, Santosh and Vijay) who made our stay comfortable. Special mention of Chef Mangesh for cooking delicious meals for us with authentic home-cooked taste!

    The views are as it is shown in the pictures and look even more pretty when seen live. They followed all safety instructions and were cleaning the common room and its surfaces after every use with staff wearing mask almost all the time. They also keep the room empty for one day before and after a booking to help in better sanitization. The room was quaint and food was good too(homecooked with Konkan touch). We didn't face any noise/music from the locals so I would say that it was a very comfortable and peaceful stay. Also, since there are lots of plants and greenery in the premises, it is suggested to wear full clothes in the evening as there will be lots of insects and mosquitos but they have Mortein coils in case you need them.

    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.
