We found this place from our guide book and by looking at trip advisor reviews. I should say that this place was heavenly after having a bad experience in a place in the city.
we loved pipi s home cooking and it was Rs 700 each .The breakfast was just right for me.Alot of fruits with home made jam (pineapple,passion fruit ,mango) and garden coffee.A breakfast was Rs 500 .
We couldn't finish all the food given as it was in large portions. This was so far the cheapest of both room rates and meals we had to pay in sri lanka.
they mentioned about the 10% service charge on the first email they sent me when confirming the rates.( this is a basic tax you would have to pay throughout sri lanka.)
The hosts are very helpful and even took me to the doctor in the middle of the night . I insisted on paying but sri(pipi s husband ) didn't take any money.
my GPS showed 1 km from this guest house to the city and we didn't mind walking to city as it was through the country side and we loved experiencing it.(20 mins walk )
We loved every bit of the stay here..
The garden was full of different flowers and butterflies and also birds singing in the morning and even could be seen so close to us when having breakfast.
We knew that the rooms were a bit small and we were fine with it.(reviews said so)
We asked for new towels each day and they provided with those.
Some rooms have double beds (a bit higher in price) but definitely worth it as its very rare to find double beds in guesthouses through out sri Lanka.(in the same price range)
we will definitely recommend this place.
This is definitely a place to relax and admire nature.
also if you are taking tuk tuk s you can get one from the road for about Rs 100 as they go empty to town.(the owner gave me this tip, if not they ask for Rs 200 )We took one when we left to the station with alot of baggage.
Would definitely recommend this place.
