We started and ended our three-week Sri Lanka tour at Seahouse, due to the excellent hospitality of Shanaka. A group of 7, we needed some help finding a driver and all, and he went out of his way to help us find the greatest driver. The hotel is a no-frills place, in a good location with the back garden overlooking... More

Seahouse was a brilliant place to finish our trip around Sri Lanka. A nice little family business with 4 guest rooms. We booked based on tripadvisor reviews, via phone just a few hours before arriving. Given we were quoted Rs1800 + 10% VAT, we were a little sceptical about the quality we could expect, but were very pleasantly surprised when... More

We are returning guests, since we liked it so much here on our first stay. The perfect place after arriving or before leaving from the airport. Clean, simple rooms, direct beach access, lovely crew and a very friendly owner make this place special. Oh and make sure to try the tacos, they are just delicious!

Simple, clean place right by the beach. The owner, Shanaka, is a cool guy who goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable. Rooms/ bathrooms are in good order. Some simple plastic beach chairs out back would top off the place. Great spot for a first or last night in Sri Lanka.

I stayed at seahouse for a week when I first arrived in Sri Lanka, and now I've come back for another week or so before I leave. There are 3 rooms in an old fisherman's house (check out the huge hole in the kitchen floor where the fisherman used to keep his nets!), and the house is very solidly built... More

My friend and I spent in the guest house in the last days of our trip in Sri Lanka. The room is simple and the price is fair for the room. The owner is a very friendly man who can help you relax in the guest house. We had a great time and will come back again in the future!!

Very nice place to arrive to after a long trip. Shanaka will come and pick you up and take you to its very relaxing guest house sitting on the beach. He will cook for your excellent dinners with the freshest ingredients,all found from the local market, unfortunately for us, the fishermen were on strike so no fish on the menu,... More
