Guest house stay, a real local experience. I originally reserved a room for 4 days. Within the first few days I found this location so relaxing and the family so nice that I extended my stay to 11 days. If you enjoy home stays or have wanted to try one I suggest you book a night here. This guest house is located in the town of Pelana which borders the town of Weligama. It is nestled is a group of homes that sit between S. Matara Road and Weligama Beach. Weligama Beach is known for being a prime location for beginners to learn how to surf. Local fishermen also work from a section of this beach. Everyday I was able to leave the house and reach the beach in a minute. Within a 5 minute walk on the beach I had a choice to take a surf lesson, relax at a beach side hotel cafe or layout on the beach. Why choose? Do all three. The guest house is run by Deenu and her parents Abey & Dia. Deenu is a fantastic cook and I opted for her breakfast and dinners. Abey maintains a beautiful garden and can schedule tours for you and take care of your laundry. If she has available time Dia maybe be able to take care of your sewing repairs. If you would like to do your own thing that is fine too. Before you leave I recommend you ask their opinion on your travel arrangements for the next leg of your trip. A friend who joined me for a few days didn't get their advise and missed her flight. On the flip side, I asked for their assistance to book a tuk tuk to Galle to catch the highway bus to Colombo airport ( known locally as Negombo) and Abey road with me to make sure I found the right bus.

Very nice and clean place near the beach, bus stop, fruit stand and small supermarket. There is also a shared refrigerator.A wonderful family cares about the guest house. In the morning, the scent of incense and the smile of a nice grandmother will wake you up. Abi is still available to you and can prepare a great fish on the grill and Dina will do everything you want. We spent a week here and made trips to the surrounding area, then we went inland for a week and kept bigger baggage. On the last days of our visit to Sri Lanka, we were happy to return to The Bay House.

we spend 2 weeks at The Bay House and recommend this place for families, couples or alone. We had the spacious family room, everything is very clean in this guesthouse (we saw the owners clean every day!). The stay in the guesthouse is very typical: smell of incense stick and Daia who prays to Buddha every morning, Abey shows us how to cut mangos and pineapples and who makes laugh the children and Dinu who prepares an excellent sri lankan breakfast every morning. This sri lankan family is really very special! The guesthouse is well situated: far (not too far) away from the tourist mass of Welligama beach, 1 minute walk to the "local" beach (in front of all the fishing boats) between the monkeys, comodos, perrots and very nice neighbours who great you evry day with the typical sri lankan smile! We will definately come back to their place when we come to Sri Lanka again! Thank you Dinu, Abey, Daia and Imesh for everything

We loved our stay here. We stayed for 5 nigths. Confortable, clean and quiet room with private bathroom. A few steps from the beach. Lovely family, they even cooked a tuna for our dinner! Motorbike rental. We booked a wale watch tour with them for a nice price. Miss U all. Would come back

Very poor service service and unfriendly staff. They are unprofessional and badly managed. I certainly would not recommend to others. Needs lots of improvement and better management! Lots of better options elsewhere.
