I spent four nights at Ocean Cottage after being in Colombo on a work trip. It was amazing! After a week in the city, this place was truly a get away from the tuk tuks and hustle and bustle of the city. I could see the stars from the porch every evening and the view from the hilltop is fabulous. It’s a short walk down to the beach which I had all to myself. It’s too rough for swimming, but nice to walk and wade.
No AC, but all rooms have great fans so it was no problem. Very nice to have a full kitchen during my stay. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to relax and rest in a beautiful spot.
Gayani was very easy to communicate with leading up to the visit! Thanks for everything!
This ocean cottage became home to us for over a month. This was our first journey to Sri lanka, and we couldn’t imagine a better place to spend our holiday with our baby son. The cottage is absolutely charming. The territory around is unbelievable - a huge lawn and amazing palms. But what impressed us most of all - it’s the spectacular ocean view. When we were serching for accommodation one of our main requests was a direct access to the beach. And we totally got it. We even found a calm place where our baby boy could swim. So if you are looking for perfect beach - it’s the right place! Gayani was very helpful in all our questions. She helped us to arange transfer and excursions, provided us information about neighborhood. Piyanada - the caretaker was also very helpful even though his English is not really good:).We highly recommend this place as a calm family retret. We wish all the best to this magnificent place and its owners:)
Ocean cottage is set away from the crazy busy towns and loud Tuk Tuks. Which is exactly what we wanted. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and could have done with a few more days there! Long Beach to walk down and enjoy the peace and quiet. I can’t rave enough about the amazing coconut tree forrest RIGHT in front of the cottage. It instantly puts you in a good mood when you see it. Then they made it even better with a hammock. We ordered food from the details on the welcome page and it was absolutely awesome. Proper traditional style Sri Lankan food, really affordable ( in fact so affordable we tipped extra, as you should) but should you want something different. There are two nearby hotels that allow you to eat at the restaurant. Stay here and you will leave more relaxed than what you came 100% guaranteed!
Ocean cottage... see you in future!
Elegant retreat, offering a comfortable stay, good food, recreation and opportunity to enjoy the unspoiled beaches and bird sanctuary. Look forward to get there once again to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends
My family and I really enjoyed a few nights away at the pretty cottage. It is well equipped basic needs and very comfortable. There is a local lady that will supply local cuisine that was very tasty and affordable. The cottage itself is located in a large area of garden overlooking the beach front. The beach itself is very pretty and clean. Our dogs had a wonderful weekend away and was able to run around and enjoy the surroundings.
This little cottage was so fantastic. I visited with a few of my friends for a girls' weekend and it was the ideal little get away. It's right on the beach, nestled between a grove of coconut trees and picturesque lawns. We had the beach all to ourselves the whole time we were there (at least we didn't disturb anyone with our howls of laughter and non-stop chatter). We felt secluded, yet safe.
The food was great as well, the cook was so accommodating to all our dietary requirements. It's such a cosy little cottage, ideal for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle or from the usual overrated holidaying spots.
Absolutely loved it, and can't wait to go back.
Awesome place. Very quite chilled out. Beautiful beach. Bird watching on the lagoon. Super fresh crabs and prawns
