The Surfing Life Guest House in Midigama evolved into a favored surfer's destination. The amiable owner Eric refurbished his home into a lovely Guest House with an enchanting garden surrounded by 2 deluxe double rooms, a deluxe triple, 3 standard doubles and 2 budget (large single) rooms. The accommodation is close to several famous and secret surfing points. The closest known points are at the "Coconut" (A-frame) and the nearby "Plantation". As seen in the Guardian newspaper article "Top 10 budget beach hotels and guest houses in Sri Lanka". NEWS: We are opening in Arugam Bay.

Mine wanted to come for banana fritters every night. My favourite dish was the chicken curry with saffron rice. Owner and staff so welcoming, felt just like home! This area feels like small town Sri Lanka loved it

I have been staying at this place three times and have been extremely pleased each time. Nice and clean rooms, great restaurant and very helpful staff. In addition to this the location is perfect, just next to great surf and a nice uncrowded beach. This is certainly a place you want to visit again!

Great place for food, western and Sri Lankan. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. After 4 weeks in Midigama, this is one of our favourites. Clean quality food and good service. Close to a lovely spot for watching the surf and sunset. Highly recommend!
