Skarhamn, Sweden

A calm budget guesthouse with monkeys jumping in the trees above the tiny river. You see them from the balkony outside the rooms, a perfect place for reading a book or knitting as my neighbour does. Just 5 minutes easy walk from the lovely beach in Mirissa but still you have a shady garden here and a place almost for...

Having booked for Boxing Day we arrived with high hopes, looking forward to a break from the hustle of Colombo life. The guesthouse is tucked away amidst many others and once we found it were greeted by a friendly manager. Entering the guesthouse you come across the 'river' along which 3 rooms are located. It was dirty, stagnant and full...

We are truly sorry and understand your disappointment, having booked a basic, however always clean and well kept beautiful guesthouse, expecting a 5 star luxury hotel. Furthermore standing us up and cancelling your booking of 2 rooms for 3 nights, with no previous payment, upon arrival , in the midst of peak season. Regards, Anne-Lie Hedström

A place with a backyard with monkeys, monitor lizzards, birds,puppies and a very kind en relaxed owner. i stayed 5 nights instead of 2 because i liked it so much!. The owner is quiet , doesn't want to sell you stuff and just leaves you alone, however he is very helpful when you need something. a place to stay!

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice and friendly guesthouse in Merissa! The location is great. Located within a quiet village, but only a 5 min. walk from the ocean beach and close to the river so that you can constantly hear and see the true nature! Winding river water just a few meters from your balcony. A...
