“Perfectly located, peaceful and friendly”
Reviewed November 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I stayed at Mikes place last year, when my house was fully booked out . It was like home from home, as he makes you feel very comfortable. I is a very convenient location, being so close to the town and beach and Mike is the perfect host, who is there if needed and shares his facilities with you but also allows you the privacy that you sometimes need.
I visited Mike´s recently and he now has a new outside oven where he makes all kinds of delicious food . The is a new yoga area on the top of the house, where you are at the same height as the monkeys!! great!! I believe there will be some yoga lessons coming up this season and also a new juice bar!! Good luck with it ,Mike!

“Awesome space!”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2013

This house was an awesome surprise. Double story with a great verandah where we drank G&T's just about every evening. And it's only about 5 mins walk to the beach. Great seafood around this neck of the woods too!

“Jungle Bliss”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had an amazing stay at Jungleside, nicely situated a short stroll from the beach in a private , quiet area, but close enough to all the nightlife and restaurants. My room was great with a large clean bed and ensuite bathroom. On the roof is a lovely space to do yoga and off my room a great balcony to relax, spot birds and see the occasional monkey...Mike is a friendly wonderful host and goes out of his way giving you information on Sri Lanka and the surrounding area..Will definitely be back and totally recommend it to anyone !

“great spot in the jungle not far from the beautiful beach”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in January 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Hikkaduwa is a great place to stay for relaxing,surfing and Yoga, good foof and Party as well...It can be busy but at the same time you will find beautiful spots like the jungle side where you are away from all the tourists. It has a beautiful garden with lots of wild animals to watch. The roof top terrace is perfect for Yoga sessions or just to relax. We had some great BBQ nights and hammock-relaxing days in the jungle side house. The owner is such a nice guy and helps with lots of insider tips and organises the nicest tuk tuk driver, tells you where to buy the best local BBQ wood and fresh bread if you want.
I had a great time there and can highly recommend this place!

“Jungle house serenity”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed there a whole month and it was fantastic. The owner became a life long friend during this time. He picked fresh fruit from his garden and made lassies, shakes etc for meals. Flew me about on his scooter when asked and shared many an evening with him and his friends around the town. He knows everybody!!
The house is huge with an upper deck to die for. The whole experience was so chilled and laid back, just what I was after when I chose the destination. The house was recommended to me in the first place, says it all doesn't it.
Thanks Mike for a very memorable stay. See you this Christmas!

“Near the surf beach but quiet”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in January 2014

person found this review helpful

Junglesidehouse - the name describes the place nicely. The house is surrounded by a garden + neighbour's gardens although it is situated at walking distance to the main road of Hikkaduwa with its restaurants, a supermarket and a part of the beach popular with surfers.
The house offers a big, well equipped kitchen with dining area and a big rooftop area apart from the sleeping rooms and a garage. I can recommend this place to people who enjoy to wake at the sound of birds, love to cook or surf but refuse to stay at the noisy main road.
Owner is nice and helpful.
