Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Im sorry to say recently we change our email address due to some one hacked. The Our World Guest houses are a friendly, family owned, secure environment in Mirissa, our aim is to delight our visitors. We have 8 rooms in all, 4 inland and 4 beach front. Inland, we have four double rooms with shower, fan and of course mosquito nets, also Internet WiFi is available. The Our World Guesthouse is two minutes away from the beach in the jungle, beside a small river. There is also a little shop which belongs to our family on the way to the beach. You can get all your daily needs there, but even in our house we run our own restaurant as well.! By request we can arrange whale watching trips, order you a `Tuk-Tuk` or rent push bikes. To get to Our World Guest house land side, first, you come to Mirissa and find the Udupila bridge. Turn towards the land near the little rotte shop and come along the little canal. After 20 metres at the fork you will see on the left hand side our sign board or you can inquire about us from the our family shop. It is situated at the sea side of the A2 road from Colombo, you will see 150km post and our little sigh boards hanging. The beach front hostel is called, [Our World Backpackers Eco Friendly Home and is situated beside the shop. " As we are not giving a commision to any one. Youmust tell the driver clearly that you want to come to us. No commission means cheaper room for you. We are giving very reasonable rates to backpackers who are visiting us. We are running a little library in both places, thanks to the visiters giving their additional books, so any one can exchange their finished books. But they are not for sale. Refill-relief- repeat we maintain a "" filtered water bottle refilling station"' at the beach side place to minimise a usage of plastic. Use filterd 20 liter big bottle and re - fill it to small bottles which brings by customers for very reasonable price. Ourworld wi-fi cafe recently we open a little cafe, at the place of on the beach eco friendly place where our back packes home situated. Promoting a sri lanka favourite rotte and fresh juices, lassy , milk shakes and salads (veg/fruit), curd and trical break first. Normally we open from 7. Am early in the morning to facilitate the people who get up early from their hotels and run thru 7 pm.Very fresh fruits from our fathers shop and very reasonable price with the assistanec of exprience chief we served natures most refreshing drinks called "'king coconut'' for very reasonable pirce to facilitate to have a memorable enjoyment last month we added another two family villas to our room collection one is occupied for three people each in side bath room and shower we are planing to open varity of rice dishes with next season biging with comming december 2014.
