My TripAdvisor Review No.7: Dwarka Homestay, Sawantwadi

“Paradise for Nature Lovers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 February 2013
We were en route to South Goa, and checked into Dwarka home stay on the evening of 6th February 2013. We liked it so much that we decided to stay on for one more day.

We were welcomed with a glass of kokum juice, then checked into our room on the first floor. It was a very neat and clean room with a double bed, and a sofa which could be converted to a bed for two kids. There was a huge balcony overlooking a compound with a lot of alphonso mango trees. Mr. Dilip Aklekar made us feel as if we were part of his own family, come to visit from the big bad noisy city.

The food was delicious, and Mr. Dilip would also join us at breakfast and dinner and chat with us, telling us about the home grown ingredients that went into preparing the meal. Most of them were grown on his farm, or came from his ancestral home in Vengurla.

He was also our friend, philosopher and guide and helped us plan our sight-seeing trip to Malvan, where we were introduced to scuba-diving, and the next day to Vengurla, from where we drove down the coastal road to Goa.

We have made up our minds to revisit Dwarka home stay in the near future.
Stayed February 2013, travelled with family
