We spent 3 nights at Eddy's and really really enjoyed it! The family running the homestay are so kind and friendly that they made us feel at home right away! We even extended our stay for another night before heading further along the coast!
The place is super clean and in a very good condition! It's close to the beach too and the garden around the building is a true green paradise - perfect for relaxing after a day surfing or hoping from one beach to the other! We would highly recommend staying here!
Eddy's homestay was the highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. In fact, the trip was for our honeymoon and we happened to learn about Eddy's homestay and rearranged some of our travel to go to Weligama--a beach town near Galle with beautiful beaches and famous for surf.
Upon arrival, we were so glad we chose to go to there and to stay in the homestay rather than a resort. Our room was simple yet perfect for our needs, with a cozy bed and a large bathroom. It had a great roof terrace with a view of the lush treetops and a nice sized porch area with a dining table. We ate all our meals there. There was even a kitchen area, although we didn't cook--rather, we opted to feast on the delicious dishes that were prepared by Eddy's family. We love food and this was hands down some of the best food we had in Sri Lanka.
What made this stay so special was the great attention to detail by our hosts. Everyone was so kind and extremely helpful. We enjoyed chatting with them over tea and learning about the area--where the best beaches are and where to buy spices. They are also experts on the flora and fauna of Sri Lanka, and recommend good places to visit for safaris nearby or in other parts of the country, for which we are also very thankful. I definitely recommend seeking out their advice about any nature trips or walks, birdwatching, etc.
My husband and I are looking forward returning to Sri Lanka soon, and will definitely stay once again at Eddy's homestay!!!
