“Nice rustic, basic house with air con in bedrooms on a beach”
Reviewed February 7, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Nice location on a small beach, but you could not really lay on beach as water comes right up to gate but nice for swimming. There is a nice surf beach within a 10 minute walk and you are a close tuk tuk ride to Weligama and Mitigama for shopping and surfing.
Owner also owns a restaurant and they supplied a lovely meal one night which was a hi light. House is clean and neat, quite adequate.

“Lovely rustic house with pretty garden and beautiful white-sand beach”
Reviewed November 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Myself, husband, two children (4 + 6 yrs) and my parents had a fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka staying for 3 weeks in Celine's rustic "Aybowen House". The house is basic but practical and has a lovely little well-kept garden with beautiful flowers, a terrace, hammocks and direct access onto a pretty little white sand beach with calm waters which are ideal for kids swimming in snorkelling. Indra and Christian who look after the house were really good hosts and always available if we needed something / had questions. Indra came to the house and cooked some amazing Sri Lankan food for us on a couple of nights which I highly recommend - it was some of the best and most tasty food we ate during out stay. The house is in a residential neighbourhood so it was a real insight into Sri Lankan life. Our neighbours were all super friendly and really welcomed the children.

There are quite a few local Tuk Tuk drivers but I would recommend working with Sahan who lives just over the road with his wife and son Nipuna (he lives with his family in the houses on the left just after you turn right down the little track to Aybowen House) He was a fantastic driver and guide - who as well as shuttling us to / from surf beaches and town showed us around some of the local sights - tea plantations, temples, turtle refuge, batik factory. He speaks good English, was always very punctual and reliable.

Local restaurants (5 mins walk away) Atkila Kitchen and Turtle Bay serve really good local food and are run by lovely people.
