We stayed on the 2nd floor in a clean room with a big terrace that you could see monkeys. The service is awesome and the owners are very sympathetic. The location is very convenient and very close to the beach. Definitely recommended. Flora

Brinkhouse and Unawatuna was our first stop in Lanka, and how we we loved it. The B&B is quite simple, but clean and everything works. We had a room on the second floor with a great big terrace where you could watch monkeys and birds and hear jungle sounds :) The best thing about Brinkhouse though, is the fantastic hospitality...

We had a little trouble securing a room via email. We had the 3000 Rp room almost booked, but never got confirmation. By the time we did get confirmation, only the 3500 Rp room was available. We took it on account of the excellent reviews here on TripAdvisor. First of all, there is no restaurant at this guest house and... More

The owner arranged our faultless collection from the airport at Colombo and we were soon whisked off in air conditioned luxury to the guesthouse. On arrival we were given a n update on the road resort, shown some maps and taken... More

Just few steps away from so far the best beach we have found from Sri Lanka (we've been here 3 weeks now). Nice, safe and clean rooms with all you need. Cheap water is easily bought from the helpful and friendly host, nearby you can find anything you can need for a perfect beach holiday. We can warmly recommend to... More

The location is right by Unatwatuna beach and on the right side of Unwatuna to walk to Jungle beach. I couldn't reccomend this place more to anybody as... More

Stayed for 4 nights with my wife, arriving v. late from Colombo Airport in Taxi (LKR8000). Owners were awake and waiting to check us in to top Suite room (2 balconies, A/C). Location is perfect, just across from main Unawatuna Beach (but not on-sand). On arrival, we were treated to a fridge filled with local beers, soft drinks & bottles... More
