We absolutely loved our stay. Everything was perfect. Room sizes fantastic. Prabod (Chef) is exceptional and Mahesh (Housekeeper) excellent and both a lot of fun. The outdoor covered area next to pool for reading/dining etc is awesome and the pool a perfect temperature.
The only advice is to charge £10-£20 more for the house per day and get rid of the 2 hour air conditioning limiters which were annoying as woke up every 2 hours sweating and have to turn them on again which was the only negative of what was an absolutely perfect stay. Would definitely stay again on next trip.
Excellent choice of accommodation for our second visit to Daisy Lanka in Mirissa, our third visit to Sri Lanka in total since 2012. As ever, Andy was on the ball from the off with the booking details, timings and airport transport.
Once there, their staff took over and made our stay very relaxing indeed. The food was excellent and the BBQ at the end of our stay very enjoyable. Again, the villa provides a great base to work from to enjoy a mixture of what the locality has to offer coupled with the odd trip afar. A welcome break at the end of our summer before getting back to the grind of work and school!
We loved our stay at Mirissa. Having a base at the Villa was very convenient. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was great - having a cook made the stay much more affordable. This was a great option for my extended family.
Right off the bat communications with Andy and Tracy were excellent, which always inspires confidence that all will be well.
On arrival at the villa we were hot and thirsty and were greeted very warmly with a cold ice tea and even colder refresher towel! which was very much appreciated. That's pretty much the way it continued the staff at daisy Lanka went out of their way too look after our every need which I did not expect. Ahmesh the housekeeper was an absolute joy, he was happy and friendly went out of his way too make sure we were comfortable and looked after right down too bringing us cold drinks out too the pool and getting lilos for us us girls just loved it! And probod was an excellent cook who fed us beautifully and at the times that suited us nothing was too much trouble we were offered selections from his photo menu which was great as you could see what you were getting everything was plentiful and delicious.
The villa itself was spacious, clean, extremely comfortable furnishings, with well equipped beautiful
Bathrooms and excellent aircon and fans in the bedrooms (which we couldn't have slept without) our tuk tuk driver was really helpful and attentitive, and ahmesh even escorted us into town one night as we werent quite sure we're too go which we really appreciated. Overall the staff st daisy Lanka, the tours guide, the night watchman everything you need for a stress less holiday the owners covered all areas, and it was definitely the best stay of our trip,
Many thanks too all involved for a most memorable experience regards Glenda Tasmania Australia
We recently returned from a trip to Sri Lanka that included a ten day stay at Daisy Lanka. Daisy Lanka met the highest expectations of our party that included me and my wife, our 25 year old daughter and her husband, and my 87 year old mother. The property's owners, Tracy and Andy, were very responsive and helpful, and overalll a pleasure to work with during the booking process. The home, pool and grounds were very comfortable and well maintained. The home is located in quiet "neighborhood", and within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. Mirissa beach is a ten minute walk away, but does require crossing a road that can be quite busy. Mirissa beach has an number of good restaurants and bars, and was by far the nicest beach we visited in Sri Lanka.
While Daisy Lanka -the home, the pool, the location- was excellent, what made our stay special were its people. Daisy Lanka staff includes Prabod, Mahesh, Jessica and Hashan. They all went the extra mile to make us feel at home. Prabod prepared excellent Sri Lankan and western dishes. Mahesh and Jessica were always available to accomodate our every need. Hashan watched over Daisy Lanka at night and was ready with his tuk tuk to transport us during the day. By the end of our stay, all felt like members of the family.
Needless to say, Daisy Lanka receives our strongest endorsement.
Daisy Lanka is an amazing place! The villa is wonderful, very well-appointed and immaculate. Both the house and garden with wonderful pool are beautiful and kept very well. The staff are truly outstanding and cater to your every whim with sincerity and genuine care. We travelled with my elderly mother and our two teenage kids, and we were all very happy and comfortable. Mirissa itself is a beautiful town, with small shops and plenty of beach bars and restaurants (though the food cooked by Daisy Lanka's chef Prabod is far superior to anywhere else!). We all went on a whale watching trip which we thoroughly enjoyed. The rest of the time was spent chilling in the garden and exploring the beach. Andy and Tracie are very organised providing us with lots of information ahead of our trip which made it all the more enjoyable. Highly recommend Daisy Lanka to all!
The Daisy Lanka is an absolute gem of place to stay in Mirissa. We love the area and wanted to find a place that we felt at home and comfortable...this place surpassed all of our expectations...the staff are great and responsive...the cook was superb and made meals we all enjoyed!
