“A ideal place for a getaway from the busy cities”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Sunil's guest house is located in a small village road with gardens surrounding. It's only a 2 minute walk to the sea front of a nice small beach. The room is basic but clean. Sunil is friendly and very helpful. Being once a tour guide, he is very willing and capable to answer almost all questions.

Because of heavy rains in the center of Sri Lanka we had to change our travel plans. We hoped to find some sunshine and dry weather on the south coast. We did and more than that :)!
We saw Sunil's Guest House mentioned in the Lonely Planet book and thought to give it a try. It turned out to be a very good choice!
The rooms are very simple but great for the money you have to pay (around 10 euro for a double room). The rooms are situated on the ground floor of the house and have all things insite you might need. The owner and his wife, Sunil and Eureka, are the two friendliest people I have ever met! They help you with everything.
The house is situated in a quiet area of Matare, between tropical gardens, just a few minutes from the beach. You have the local beach but when you walk a little bit further you find some more beautiful beaches where we often were the only two ;)!
Sunil serves breakfast in the morning if you want. For only 2 euro you get a big pot of tea or coffee, omelets, fresh fruit, toasted bread and marmelade.
You can also order for dinner in the evening; they make everything you ask for.
Next doors, at his parent's house you can use the internet for 0,42 euro an hour and his brother organises snorkling trips if you are interested.
We think it is a great place to enjoy the real Sri Lankan village life.
In the near future Sunil, also has a more luxerious guesthouse, next to the beach. All rooms with sea view. They were building it when we were there but it will be finished soon I think and looks wonderful!
