"Yeva Ghar Apalach Aasa"
Ghar Mithbavkaranche beach resort, "No. 1" food specialist in Malvan.
this is the best place in malvan to stay & enjoy the taste of malvani food.
you must try it once in your stay.
I was at Mithbavkar's with my family last year. The rooms are neat and clean, including the bathrooms. They provide fresh bedsheets, towels, etc. Electricity is not a problem, since they have backup, even for the air-conditioners. There is water 24-hrs and it is soft water.
The best part our experience was the food. The kitchen is hygeinic and the family takes personal interest in cooking whatever you want to try. The starters are really good.
But after a point all Malvani food begins to taste the same, because they use the same masala for all dishes.
What makes Tarkarli stand out is the quality of the sea water. The beaches close to Mumbai have become so polluted that it is dangerous to step into the sea. Alibag sea is like a gutter. The water is murky black, choking with plastic. In comparison, the sea in Tarkarli is so clean that you can see your toes even if you are standing neck deep in the water.
Do visit the Sindhudurg fort, and buy mangoes if you go there in the season (best, ask the Mithbavkars to buy it for you; they will get you a better price and quality and even pack it for you).
What you need to know - the nearest ATM is 6 kms away in Malvan town (there are only 2, and often dont work), the nearest petrol pump is 8 kms away, and booze and beer is 18 kms away (but the Mithbavkars will get it for you).
The only problem with Tarkarli is that it is 450 kms from Pune, but the drive is beautiful and you can take in the Mahalaxmi temple at Kolhapur on your way.
Thanks for great feedback.
Good news is there will be Air port set up at CHIPPI which is 30 mins drive away from Tarkarli. so in future journy time will be reduced.
DO visit again & please refer to your friends, thanks.

In year 2011 I was searching places to celebrate my wedding anniversary. After research I zeroed on to Tarkarli.
Trip to Tarkarli was fun I will say, coz it was first time I had been to Konkan on my own. From Kudal station I took Auto and reached MTDC resort (which I had planned earlier). However it was full due to adv bookings. At that time some one suggested for Mithbavkar place and took us there. Though skeptical initially but when we check-in we were relaxed with the homely atmosphere.
We felt as of part of the family especially when we were asked what we will have in breakfast, lunch or dinner which normally is not seen anywhere.
Food was awesome.. We relished non-veg items especially fish (surmai/paplet/halwa) and solkadi the browny item.
Ambience was good & hygienic. In the midst of cocunut we didnt feel like leaving the place. It was heaven for us.
Though I don't recollect names with whom we interacted, however I will not forget one name "Sanket" who helped us during our 2 days stay.
Its two year now but still me and my wife still enjoy those splendid moments spent over there.
Most probably we are planning to drop-in Nov 2014 to celebrate our kids 1st bday.
Lets hope our dream comes true.

Now they have 15 Rooms, 1st floor rooms are very specious and full of facilities, Ground floor rooms are old in a setup but all rooms having AC units (there is different costs as per room and inside facilities). Lush Coconut tree garden is added advantage with Hammock.
Now they have Power generator so they overcome with problem of power cut and AC is not working. They have started 2 Fully luxurious room.
Food is great but some time we feel price is high but if i compare the quality and specially quantity to other resort and restaurant then i can experience the difference. though its near seashore but still local fishery items are high in cost at market. They dont charge for kid's food and you will get good hot Dal-Rice for your little one.
Malvan and Tarkarli gaon always having problem labours so sometime most of the family members and relative work and run the business and that might affect service sometime.
Outsiders visits restaurant but sometime waiting time more for lunch and or dinner. Card payment facility have been started which is added advantage.
Beach is walkable, Sindhudurgh fort is nearby say 6 KM in Malvan city there you can enjoy Snorkeling and Scooba diving. At Tarkarli you can enjoy all Water sports.
Again its not city that you can except everything at your fingertips but still we got more and satisfied with service. if you feel owner dont talk much then its so simple go and talk to them and give them feedback. :)
