I stayed here for my last week in Sri Lanka- without a doubt the kindest and most hospitable family which you really become a part of. They taught me how to cook Sri Lankan food, I peeled chillies with the grandmother and went to the puja at the local temple during the full moon. The house itself is a beautiful piece of architecture from the 30s and the family have built and lived in it since then. Good for those on a budget but looking to explore the local culture. A must if in Unawatuna!
