We stayed here in both rooms, Indika knows everyone locally and advised on best food places and things to do around Galle. The house is fab with one room having an open air toilet and shower! Indika also took us to his friends turtle hatchery and we were given the privilege of releasing baby turtles back Into the sea !... More

Indika and his family will make you feel so welcome you won't want to leave! The room and facilities are amazing. Indika being an interior designer really shows with quirky furniture and décor. Great breakfast, large a/c room in a quiet location. Indika gave us some really good tips for Galle. Our only regret - we stayed there for just... More

It took us a while to find but as soon as we arrived we were shocked by this hidden gem of a home. It was so beautifully and originally decorated and was very clean. We were greeted by Indika along with cold drink and pineapple. He spoke very good English and told us of his business and offered assistance where... More

We stayed here for a few days on our way through Sri Lanka and loved the hospitality given by Indika. We arrived and were greeted with some fresh fruit and cold drinks and great conversation. The house is incredible! Designed so well that I have been massively inspired. Open, light and cool and the bathroom.... Showering outdoors under the stars... More

Stayed here for 1 night with 2 friends and we had the whole second level to ourselves as we were the only guests that night. =) The location was slightly remote but peaceful and great for those who just want to get away from everything for a while. Indika was an excellent host and brought us to see as much... More

Indika was an excellent host and made sure our vacation was a wonderful experience. We stayed with 4 people, and the accommodation and location was great. This location is close to the fort, beaches, and good restaurants. We very much enjoyed releasing the turtles, the fort and surrounding area, beaches, tea plantations, and getting to know Indika and his family.... More

Of the places we stayed during our 2 week trip around Sri Lanka this shared the top spot with only one other - wonderful welcoming family, delicious food and a beautiful house to relax and sleep in with the best outdoor bathroom i've ever seen, all designed by Indika himself!

He welcomed us with a big smile and a fantastic van. Ready for a 6 day tour: Negombo to Anaradapura, Kandy, Ella, Mirissa, Galle Fort and Colombo. Quickly understanding our father/son dynamic and expectations. Nothing was too difficult. Indika is a customer focused service oriented individual. In Galle he is a personality - on every corner he smiles and says... More

We had a lovely stay with Indika and his family. They made us and our 2 boys very welcome! Beautiful Sri Lankan house which Indika designed and decorated himself.
