“Farm Life”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

All the fast lane city dwellers, if you really wish to take a pause in life and wish to take a deep pause to catch up with life..then this is the place to be. Dilip, the owner of the eco farm house "Dwarka" treats you like god. So be ready to taste the Malvani cusine, loads of fishes,non veg and veggies and if you are lucky to be in Manago season then Alphonsos.
Serene life, soak in with books, visit the Malvan beach, Sindhudurg fort, Tarkali beach and backwater and the Sawantwadi town... a really marvellous holiday. This was un parrallel expereince for us a Dilip took us thru his farm and guided us ( we were 3 families together). Our kids actually learned milking in his farm and connected to nature. I am told post monsson this area turns into green heaven. So we plan to visit again sometime post monsoon. Infact post this trip, Dilip has become my life's idol for retirement ( hey i am a farmer by heart n academics too).. anyway this was the unbeaten holiday for all of us. cheers Dilip. Keep it up.

Room Tip: just 6 rooms ..and all are fine

From the beginning we were made to feel wonderfully welcome. All the staff appeared to welcome us with marigolds in the traditional way, and from then on whatever we were interested in was what our host Dilip arranged.
We loved the food and meeting the local lady who cooked it. Dilip ordered food specially to suit us and told us all about it, getting fish specially and showing us jaggery and other interesting ingredients.
He showed us round his fascinating property, explaining the various ecosystems that make his farm thrive. Cashews, teak, coconut, spices and lots of vegetables, all enriched by interaction of ecofriendly practices, often centred on his beautiful cows. It is a beautiful, peaceful and deeply satisfying place.
We said we loved the sea, so Dilip took us - to a fabulous beach, with beers in a coolbox. We said we were interested in houses, so Dilip took us to a friend's. We said we liked walking, so he took us for a long walk, ending up in a paddy field and then going to one of the farmers' houses. We talked endlessly with him and he taught us much about India.
We were hugely grateful for his kindness.
