My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights before heading home from Sri Lanka. Close to the beach, the owners were incredibly welcoming and friendly. Room was clean and had everything we needed - great wifi and nice view. Maybe the mosquito nets need replacing but everything else was fine. Breakfast was nice too. Thank you!

Modern ensuite room of decent size. Tasteful communal areas with nice back garden. Great service. A couple of small maintenance issues, but this didn't detract from the experience too much. 5 mins walk from beach. 5 mins walk from a charming little tourist strip of a few great restaurants huddled together. Popular with Europeans. Reminds me of Cyprus.

This is a very basic guesthouse. The Manager is very nice and helpful and the breakfast was excellent with lovely fresh fruit to finish. However if you can afford a few extra dollars stay somewhere else. The room was very basic with items that were broken. The toilet was filthy and smelt awful. The holes in the mozzie nets were...

A/c, good wifi, walking distance to all the food and whatnot by the hotels. Could prob do those little things like make sure the window screens by the shower were securely closed to keep the Mosquitos out of the bathroom, but I had no qualms really. I'd come back here and stay again for sure
