“YOU WILL BE MADE TO FEEL AT HOME HERE.”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

I stayed with Gamunu, Yesantha & their housemaid Radha last March 2013.
You will be made to feel as though you are part of the family, & you will be cooked delicious vegetarian dishes 3 times a day (if you don't go out for visits)
Gamunu has alot of 'local' knowledge & can arrange trips to suit your needs.There can be visits to the many Temples that are on the island, visits to seaside resorts with fishing communities & markets, exploring the mountains & beautiful scenery of Sri Lanka, & many other things to see that most tourists will never get to find out about.One such thing that sticks in my mind was an impromptu call at a roadside cafe on our way back from Kandy (Royal City) where the lady who runs the place gave us wonderful local dishes with many side plates & endless refills for just 100 rupees, which is just over $1 or less than an English pound!
It would be a different & great way to see Sri Lanka for mature singles/couples of any age or even small groups as Gamunu has access to sleeping accomodation within easy access of the main house where food & some lodging is provided.(as well as endless pots of tea provided by the lovely Radha!)

I was at Gemunu's Travel Homestay of Gemunu last november 2012. I would like to recommend Gemunu's place for people who need to stay a while as soon as they arrive in Sri Lanka or just before departure. I was travelling alone and found this family extremely hospitable and very safe. (Must mention that Yasantha was a sweet lady who made me comfortable with her chats at dinner with excellent dishes prepared with the help of Radha, their assistant) Also Gemunu accompanied me to down south to beautiful Tangalle making me to spend very little. Though his jeep is not that comfortable for long trips, we found it really ideal for certain excursions where a van or a car could not bear. Also travelling in a jeep was safer than other vehicles as his type of jeeps were usued as police vehicles in the past. Being a woman travelling alone I really felt safe with Gemunu... also it was very useful his knowledge of the places to eat and shopping as well as sight seeing. This surely is a good address for a single women to travel in Sri Lanka.
