We had a 3 night stay in the ground floor garden room at the bottom of the drive, we were greeted by Phil and Wathsala, Phil really went out of his way to be helpful and make us feel at home. Our room was very spacious with lovely big bed, it had a ceiling fan which was a life saver as it was very hot & we would not have slept without it as the bedroom only has doors & we did not feel comfortable leaving them open all night. Air con would be a major plus. Storage space was great plenty of it with your own fridge.
Breakfast was great, although I found taking your shoes off was a pain after having a shower & washing my shoes before breakfast I ended up doing it again afterwards due to the terrace being sandy.
We found the location handy with an easy walk along the beach into town and close to the shack a great bar with amazing sea views and laid back vibe. I would stay again, can't wait to return.
