We were travelling around Sri Lanka as a group of 4 friends & planned to stay at Starfish Beach Bungalows for 2 days, but ended up staying longer & we are planning to go back. Affordable rates for an AC room, amazing location in between Potuvil Point & Whiskey Bay. Lovely family who cooked us breakfast & dinner most nights & helped to organise transport for us. Comfy beds & nice outside shower. Definitely would recommend staying at this awesome beach hideaway & perfect to get away from the crowds of A-Bay.

We initially booked a couple of nights, but Ayesh was so welcoming, we felt so happy there we simply didn’t want to leave - we stayed a month! He was so helpful with everything from travel plans, to activities and renting bikes/surfboards locally for the best deal from good people. His father and uncle cooked us the most delicious meals everyday, accommodating our vegan diets happily and introducing us to new and delicious food with each meal. We feel like we have a family here, and will definitely be coming back one day! Ayesh answered all our questions, and went out of his way to show us Sri Lankan lifestyle and culture, it was just the most amazing experience. It’s in a beautiful location, with the beach so close, incredible wildlife (peacocks, elephants, lizards, beautiful birds!). Ayesh and his family showed us such kindness and hospitality, we left with hearts filled with love. We really enjoyed the peace of the garden, we were lucky to meet some really lovely people that were also staying there, we enjoyed going surfing with them, exploring on the bikes and swimming in the sea. If you’re in Sri Lanka we highly recommended you stay here, if you have the time I hope you get to spend a bit longer really enjoying the peace and beauty of this place. Thank you thank you thank you!

Very good to relax, close to the beach. Excellent for surfing. Owner and family are very friendly and helpful. Good food and prices. We loved the shower in open air. Beds and room perfect. Highly recommended! Ayesh gives you the best Sri Lankan experience.

Sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal, zum surfen am Whiskey Point die optimale Lage. Surfbrett- oder Rollerverleih wird arrangiert. Leckeres Frühstück und süße Hunde auf dem Gelände. Mit Glück kann man in den Abendstunden Elefanten beobachten.
