Kabalana Design House Villa Is a short walk to the surfing Beach! This is a large, light and airy house with a wonderful balcony! The host is well organised, helpful, friendly and is very generous with his (or his mum's) good cooking portions! This House is great value, as you have the use of a spacious kitchen and fridge! The room was clean it also had a balcony which you could see the sun setting through the palm trees and glimps of the sea! Highly recommend!

Amazing, affordable family run guest villa suitable for single or any company to stay! Villa host Janaka was very friendly and service level was abovw all expectations. 5 min relaxed walking to Kabalana Beach/Gale road. Meals prepared by Janaka's mom was so delicious, so I prefer them to any food can be found in places around. Very clean, quiet and shiny, big lobby at the 2nd fluor for relaxing or doing some intellectual job. ;-) No Acyet but was promiced by Janaka to install some before the next season. The fan was more than enough for me. Higly reccomend!

I stayed here with a friend in neighbouring rooms on the top floor, sharing his large balcony which I could access from my equally excellent room, after a last minute airport booking and we both loved it. It's a few minutes from the best all round beach on the south coast for swimming, surfing and lounging, Kabalana, and the rooms are comfortable, in a large house which is nestled in a little hamlet of houses back from the road surrounded by greenery and local people. As well as the balcony being a gorgeous place to sit out with sun all day, especially enjoyable in the evening, out favourite aspect of this house is the fact that it's a household and presided over by the lovely Nini and her mother Bathli (sp?), who took a shine to us and took great care of us. We ate in the hotel every night as the home-cooking was fantastic (around 5$ per night), as were the included breakfasts. We stayed for around a week, and took part in making the food one night and generally just had a brilliant time zipping about on scooters from the little hut on Kabalana beach, visiting beaches and hanging out in the house. We were proper sad to leave and will be back for sure if I/we get back to that part of Sri Lanka.

We stayed in this guest house for 10 days. Did not book in advance, arranged the stay upon arrival. Tip: price may vary depending on for how long you stay. Host were very welcoming and gave us free upgrade of room: we moved to big room with balcony because it was not occupied. The food was excellent. Kabalana is a nice small village. Nearby there are two ancient temples, spa at lake. A nice beach and many cafes are in 10 mins walking distance. And of course there is a surfing spot. We took lessons at Watermelon surf school, which is located in South Star hotel just next to the guest house.
