I have stayed in ancient tree house only for one day, but it was really nice. Delicious srilankan breakfast. The beach is only tree minutes away. Ancient tree house is situated not directly at the main road so it is a very quiet relaxing places. I enjoyed that a lot. Best way (and cheapest) to book is directly via email...

My stay at the guest house was perfect, the room has everything you need especially because the price is so affordable. I felt completely looked after, from assistance with my transport bookings to cups of tea and dinner. Thank you so much for going above and beyond you made my stay in Mirissa :D

This was the second time we had stayed at Ancient Tree as a family. The location is just a short distance away from the beach and wonderfully quiet. When you wake in the morning you hear the birds and, if you are lucky, the langurs. It has a real village feel about it. Pushpa and her family are extremely warm...

We stayed three nights here and had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, the room was spotless and had everything we needed. The location is great - just off the beach and nice and quiet. The hot water pressure was not great, but who wants hot showers in this heat anyway? The wifi was also painfully slow...

We're STILL here at the Ancient Tree! Pushpa and Lal have finished the work on their two new upstairs rooms! They are spacious and bright and one of them even has a kitchen so you can cook for yourself if you wish. Of course, you should still try the meals prepared by Pushpa as it is easily the best home...
