About the Home

Amidst the lush green hills, cascading waterfalls and bountiful natural beauty of Khandala resides a charming stone and wood villa, SaffronStays Woodstone Villa. With the red-shingle roof, stone and wood walls, the villa exudes an earthy countryside vibe. Relax in the front yard furnished with a vibrant yellow couch or lay back in the hammock. Kids can have a fun time on the swing or enjoy a game of twisters.

The villa is a perfect manifestation of authentic Parsi house. The sleek interiors are dressed with exquisite antiques passed down over generations. Double high ceiling, colourful ceramic wall plates hanging on the bright red wall and the stylish coffee table add a touch of class. The colonial furniture, the delicately carved stone frames from Rajasthani palace, old school lamps, chandeliers, cupboards and tables embellished with beautiful showpieces give it a vintage vibe. The colourful floor mattress adds life to the elegant light cream colour sofa set. Beautiful paintings and Buddhist artefacts adorn the bedrooms. With a spacious sitting area and a beautiful view, the master bedroom is no less than a suite.
