About This Listing Spend some time in this nice, clean family home, right on top of the marine action that Mirissa is known for. Price is for the big triple room with hot water. Double rooms are available as well. The Space Samatha’s is newly built and has four bedrooms, each with attached bathroom, nice little balconies and a common dining area on the veranda. Simple, clean, convenient. Samantha and his family live in a separate part of the house, where he’s even built himself a little Ayurvedic centre. Interaction with Guests Being a fisherman himself, Samantha mostly fishes for what they call ‘colour fish’ to export. Fishing being a notoriously hard job, he wants his two sons to stick to tourism, a job for which they are well suited, because their English is better than dad’s. “I ...About This Listing Spend some time in this nice, clean family home, right on top of the marine action that Mirissa is known for.

Interaction with Guests Being a fisherman himself, Samantha mostly fishes for what they call ‘colour fish’ to export. Fishing being a notoriously hard job, he wants his two sons to stick to tourism, a job for which they are well suited, because their English is better than dad’s. “I can’t do anything special” Samatha said when we visited him, but he’s dead wrong. This man spent his life off shore, knows everything about the fish and is happy to share his love of the sea with his guest. Seriously, this is your opportunity to go fishing or snorkelling with a man who knows his trade. As is usual in Sri Lanka, food and drinks can be arranged upon request. The Neighborhood Once you get to the area around Matara you’ve reached the Southern end of Sri Lanka. It was here, standing on the Dondra Head that biologists spotted the giant Blue Whales only a few years ago, which kicked of Mirissa as a whale watching hub. Matara itself is where you arrive by bus, go to the bank and do some shopping, while nearby Midigama, Weligama and Polhena are where the surfers go. Further East lie the beach towns Tangalle and Rekawa, which is known for its turtle hatchery. This area would certainly be our choice for a beach vacation. Located 50 metres from the beach and 150 metres from the fishing harbour, Samantha’s is right where you need to be in Mirissa.More
