I've been in Surf Shadow at new year's holydays and spent 10 days there. I was immediately in loved in the family which are the owners of the house. They are very kind people, always cared about me, showed a part of real life in Sri Lanka. They took me around, teached how to cook local food, showed me local places.
The house has 3 floors and a roof with lovely view on the ocean. It is clean and simple - ideal space for people who travel or surf. I haven't need to care about meal because I could order food inside the house (! they cook amazing porridge by the recipe of the chief from Sweden) or go to cafe which is situated next to the house. And there are near Indika surfshop - they repair boards and sale surf clothes and very nice handmade jewelery.
This guest house situated exactly opposite of the ocean and the surf spot. So I could sit at the roof during the day time, to drink a juice and watch sport channel) And at night time I could listen to the ocean, feel the breeze and enjoy the sky full stars.
It is just 5 minutes to Lazy Left spot and 10 - for Lazy Right. Lazy Left is good for intermidiate and advanced surfers and Lazy Right are perfect for longboards. The interesting thing is you can surf whole day, even in high tide.
It is easy to find Surf Shadow. You need to take a taxi from airport or go there by train from Colombo until Midigama or Ahangama train station.
