This was a lucky find. A warm home environment, clean and airy room, very comfortable in all respects. Will return.

Lovely place - clean, bright, comfortable rooms with a pretty garden. The location is very convenient and the hosts offered a warm welcome along with lots of helpful advice. Breakfast was delicious!

This was a great place to start and end our trip to Sri Lanka.
The location is convienently close to the Galle Rd and therefore any form of transport.
The house is a lovely tropical home with a great terrace and refreshing garden. Here we enjoyed the fantastic breakfast...including the best papaya in asia.
Also the hosts are very welcoming and super helpful. I enjoyed our evening conversations in the garden over a local cocktail....We hope to come back one day....

It's a very nice place. The room was big, clean, comfortable, with air conditioner and bathroom. Only it was a little loud outside. Very good breakfast. Also you can spend time in a garden. Hosts are very helpful and kind. Explain how to get to the house, helped us with renting a car and gave some guidance. I recommend this place.
