We had a great stay at Dwaraka. It was a really awesome experience with delicious food and superb ambiance. All credit goes to Dilip kaka (owner of Dwaraka homestay) and his team. Kaka guided us so well that we could explore Sindhudurg region without any difficulty. I would definitely like to stay at Dwaraka again.

We stayed at dwarka homestay from 31/12/2012 to 05/01/2013. we found this place equally excellent for adults and kids/babies in respect of food, comfort, hygiene. Mr. dilip bhai and his staff was quite cooperative and friendly...and the resort has an green/vegitation area of around 15 acres which was good for morning walk and healthy routine point of view. owner dilip was well familiar / informed about the place and near by site seen places. Most interesting part is that this place is covered with unexplore neat and clean beaches and ilands. If a could explan Dwarka in one work that is "Marvelous ".............. great thanks to dilip aklekar and his staff members....

We stayed at Dwaraka in 1st week of Nov. It was very excellent stay... Its like Diamond in Sahyadri Mountain Ranges. Its clean, fresh air, and everything what you asked for.

Special Organic Home cooked food was excellent. Non veg lovers should at least visit one time to eat authentic Malawan food.

Dilip Sir has arranges all of our trip and we just had to visit and enjoy!

Dilip Sir! Thanks for your warm welcome and pleasant stay . Thank you for making our trip memorable. Sorry for the delay in writing the Review.

We stayed at Dwarka for couple of days. We found this place very good. Excellent kokani food with both Veg and Non Veg options equally delicious. Rooms were simple but very neat and clean. Conviniently placed near Sawantwadi. The owner Dilip Aklekar is very cooperative and well informed about the region. Overall we liked our stay very much.

Room Tip: First floor rooms seems to quite spacious with good look.

Dilip and Dwarka are synonymous with hospitality and warmth. The 15 acre farm has numerous fruit trees as well as livestock (which my 6 year old daughter just loved feeding whenever she got the chance). This is the perfect base to explore the entire Sindhudurg region with numerous options such as: Snorkeling / Diving / Fishing / Swimming (in the unspoilt virgin beaches that abound the area) / Dolphin gazing / Temple tours / Wildlife walks / Village experiences.
There is something for everyone and my wife and I along with our daughter explored the area thoroughly in our car. We spent 5 nights in Dwarka from December 28, 2012 till January 2, 2013 and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the stay. Also the food (Breakfast & Dinner) was just outstanding. His staff was brilliant, efficient and so very hard-working.
Dilip will be your chief organizer (all his vendors are reliable and trust-worthy which is extremely refreshing), story teller, history teacher, environment protector and just about anything else that you care to entask him with.
This was our first homestay experience - and over-all it was fantastic and we recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Rooms within the main house and on the first floor are nicer

I've been staying for 2 days at the DWARKA. The stay was really nice, upon arriving I found myself in a valley of smiles. The very first person I met in Dwarka was Dilip...
Dilip Aklekar (KAKA) has explained everything about around the places. He has guided us very well, like where we can visit and spend good time. Entering the room, it was clean and quiet (couldn't hear a noise). The bathroom is also spacious and very clean.
They served very rich and delicious homemade food we ever had. We have celebrated our anniversary with all staff and other guests, all credit goes to Kaka. Thanks for lovely cake and flowers.

1st thing - Dilip kaka, Hats off to you... (btw, Its for Mr. Dilip Aklekar - The owner of this place)
This 15 Acres of place is so well managed. With lots of vegetable farming and tree plantations. Just superb.
This was my 1st experience of HOMESTAY.
Mind you guys, Its Homestay and Not the hotel. But you get everything that a hotel offers you but with the feel of staying at your home, having dinner and breakfast with your family, enjoying chit-chats over the food...

If you are planning to go to Sawantwadi / Vengurla / Sindhudurg Tour, This is one of the best place location wise as well, exactly at the center of vengurla and Malvan. Stay at Dwarka is memorable. While going there, Do not plan your journey. Just book your stay. Dilip kaka will plan other things for you.

FOOD and ROOM are the most important things when you book your travel-

FOOD -> Just awesome. Suvarna Mavshi and others served delicious food. Suprpised to see Dilip kaka knowing each and every receipe and gives personal attention to every dish which is being prepared for us.

ROOMS -> Clean Rooms offer attach bathrooms, 24*7 hot and cold water. Nice Farm view from balcony. You get a very sound sleep.

My sister and her in law families had been to this place several times. Now it was my turn. and it was absolutely memorable.
People in and around Dwarka were just superb. Always there to help us in every small matters. They really took very good care of me and my wife.

We are definitely going to visit this place again.

Room Tip: ANY ROOM you chose its gonna be beautiful :-) :-)
