With no neighbours this guesthouse is nice and quiet! The rooms, whilst basic are cool, clean and comfortable. The staff are incredibly friendly, caring and helpfull and breakfast out on the balcony was just such a perfect start to the day! We found this place to be the perfect base for us. The garden upstairs was great! With a big swing (my partner looses about 20 years upon sitting on any swing) and a tortoise (like I said - 20 years!) the stunning ocean views, sunsets and dinners are secondary! The garden's great, quiet and private. A nice place to enjoy lazing in the sun.
2 negative comments, firstly we spotted a cockroach on the balcony (it's Sri Lanka - there are going to be cockroaches! Get over it) and secondly we had one of the front rooms (the cheaper of the 2) and the heavy rain beat through our shutters one night and I had to get up and raise all our belongings off the floor and put some towels down to catch it. The staff were very apologetic and thoroughly cleaned our room the next day making it all as good as new! And yes, on the coast you are prone to a couple of sea storms by night. It didn't get into our room the other nights - this storm was just a big one I assure you!
