Arrived in Mirissa after sharing a Taxi from Tangalle and came across the Handagedara, luckily for us they had a spare room. The owner was so welcoming and greeted us with a fresh coconut from their garden. The Handagedara was the owners family home which they had converted into a small 5 room guest house ,it had only been open around 6 months. The house had a lovely cool feel about it , the room was large , clean and very comfortable with a great fresh breakfast. Ideally located on a quiet road between the beach \restaurants (10 minutes walk) and the harbor. We would have loved to have stayed longer than 2 nights but had much more of Sri Lanka to see.
We would recommend the Handagedara to anyone staying in Mirissa but dont rely on luck book it in advance this place will become popular.
