We stayed at Villa Gaetano for four nights at the end of our stay in Sri Lanka. We emailed the owners Chrishan and Melani directly for prices and availability (email@example.com) which worked out a better price than booking through the internet. Our room was located on the second floor and was spacious and clean. The bed was a large four poster bed that was very comfortable with a fan overhead as well as A/C in the room. Although not directly on the beach we would arrange with the owners to be taken to the beach free of charge, in their Tuk Tuk and picked up again later, nothing is too much trouble for them, they even came and picked us up from the last B & B we stayed in. It is a very peaceful environment at Villa Gaetano as it is away from the main road and the gardens are well maintained. We ate at Villa Gaetano every night as the food was lovely and at a reasonable price. Melani will give you details of the meal she is thinking of cooking but if you don't like it she will do something else for you. At the end of our stay we were heading back to Colombo airport and Melani arranged a taxi for us at a good price. All in all a very good place to stay that is excellent value for money.
