“Lovely stay in Karapitiya”
Reviewed 10 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We have had a great time staying at Karapitiya.
Rajita is a great host, always going out of his way to make sure we have everything we need and helping us if we have any questions.

The area is very nice with lots of wildlife around to see from the house.

We also loved the outdoor shower! Very refreshing on hot days :)

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 6 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

I booked a 6 weeks stay st Rajitha's place and was more than satisfied. I did an elective in the hospital nearby and it only takes 6 minutes walking to get there in the morning, which is great. Also for staying in galle long term there couldn't be a better host than Rajitha. He helped us with all his contacts to get a true Sri Lankan experience and even helped us buy a motorbike, which was great because there is quite a bit of paperwork coming with that and he knew how to do it right.
So big thanks Rajitha for everything and highly recommended for anybody looking for a place in galle!

“Authentic Sri Lankan experience and warm hospitality”

person found this review helpful

As a foreign medical student staying for 6 months in Karapitiya to do research, I found this location to be very convenient, and it allowed me to experience Sri Lanka to the fullest. The host Rajitha and his family are extremely warm and welcoming, introducing me to various experiences in Sri Lanka that I would not have had otherwise. They treated me as another family member, which I was very appreciative of given the length of time I stayed in Sri Lanka. The accommodation is great and ideal for anyone working in Karapitiya. I would highly recommend staying here!

“Cozy house with everything you need, helpful and friendly host”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The two of us stayed at Rajitha's house for 5 nights and totally enjoyed it! Rajitha is a wonderful host in all aspects. Flexible, helpful and very polite, he has given us many incredibly useful advices about Sri Lanka, which you wouldn't get in a hotel or elsewhere. The house itself is very well thought-out, clean, cozy and stylish with the real antique window frames! The location is quite and safe, you don't really feel that you are in the city. The place is not far from the Galle Fort, Mahathun surf point and Unawatuna beach, especially if you have a scooter. Getting around is easy anyway, the Karapitya hospital is a transport hub with dozens of tuk tuks. Totally recommend to anyone seeking non-package tourist experience and insights about the fantastic island of Sri Lanka!

Rajitha is one of the outstanding guys I med in Sri Lanka.

He was always on point, friendly and very helpful.

I stayed there nearly one month, he helped me out with everything I needed.

More over he got a nice family.

After the few weeks we became friends and I recommend his house to everyone.
