We stayed in The Spice House with our 9 month old daughter for four nights. We had wonderful time. Phil, Wathsala and Wathsala's family did everything possible to make us feel at home. They were ready to help us in any information we needed with a big smile and we could feel they were doing their job with love. Wathsala's father who is an ayurvedic doctor boiled some plants to help heal my daughter's heat rash which started since we arrived in Sri Lanka.The place was nicely decorated and clean enough and I could comfortably leave my baby on the floor to crawl. During our stay, there was a problem with the hot water on the second floor so we had to go down to take shower but we were so much feeling at home that we didnot mind that at all. Although there were nets for beds, we thought some nets could be installed on the windows, too. Anyway, the friendliness of the hosts made our stay a great pleasure there. When we were there they were still constructing the swimming pool. When it is finished it shall be a perfect place. So next time in Mirissa we know exactly where to stay and we know we have some good friends over there.
