I found out about this place in a guide book and contacted Karin and Shantha to reserve the place for 1 room since we were visiting Yala national park. They responded very fast and answered all the questions. We arrived 15.02 afternoon and decided to go to the beach. Shantha kindly recommended the exact place where we could swim, which was very nice since there are wild and crazy waves around and you should really find a spot where you can enter the water.
We arranged a day-trip safari with Shantha, but we met another couple and shared the price for safari. Shantha's nephew was driving us through Yala the whole day (almost 12 hours, star at 6 am and finish at 5 pm), which was an amazing experience. He was really a great and attentive guide spotting all the hidden animals and birds.
I highly recommend a day safari, since during the noon heat the park is almost empty and the guid can drive you to some remote spots. The guide is also very important, we've seen some guides who were quite relaxed and lazy in searching for animals.
We like the place so much that we decided to stay one more night and then to move further to Tangalle, but this is another story :)
