When we were here it was off season and the place was pretty messy. The owner Kasun said he was renovating but i don't think they actually were. Our room was clean though, comfortable bed and a mosquito net that we didn't use. We had non A/C room which was fine except the fan was useless. Good location though for... More

This guest house rents out 5 rooms. We had the room on the top floor closest to the street. There is a constant music noise from around the area the whole night, even when we got up in the morning to get to the Whale watching event (which we booked through Speed Liner for 3500Rs a person - good service...

This clean place is run by Kasun and his wife. It is neat, tidy and quite clean. We had the air con room and it was great value for money. For us , we would have paid more to have a small fridge and some hooks on the walls to hang clothes. The wifi is not great in the room... More

We stayed here as a group of 7 girls (split between 2 rooms) and loved it. We arrived late to Mirissa and after a quick call to say we were lost, the owner took two trips in his tuktuk to pick us up. His wife made sure we were comfortable and provided us with towels and soap etc. The beds... More

We really enjoyed out stay here. The owner was great, picked us up from the bus stop and it was a good price. The rooms were nice and significantly better than other guest houses we have stayed at in sri lanka. Breakfast is available and is tasty. The ground are lovely and the family are nice- the little children are... More

I booked this place for 2 days, one day before my arrival paying Rs.1000 down-payment. However, when I arrived next day, the owner took me to the different hostel next door without any explanation. I suppose this is common thing in Sri Lanka and maybe they do not think it is bad. However, I believe this kind of thing should... More

Had a great stat at Calidan, the owners were incredibly helpful - even dropping us (and our backpacks) off at the bus stop for free when we left. Fab price and location too - cheapest we've stayed at in Sri Lanka so far and only 3 mins from the beach!

This place was really nothing special, but very cheap and good value for the money. It is about 50m away from the beach, so it doesn't really matter if they have no kitchen or bar - you are eating dinner on the beach anyways. The owner's brother gave me surfing lessons, the family was very friendly.
