“Great Place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2012

I stayed for five nights. My room was very clean as well as the rest of the house. The food was good and reasonably priced. Everyone was very friendly and would help with any questions I had. I would recommend to anyone!!

I can highly recommend staying at bird house. My room was spacious and clean and equipped with everything i needed.
Lalith and his family made me feel comfortable and welcome always helpful with informaton.If you have a chance to stay there you should definitely try the home made meals. I enjoyed them very much!

I spent over three weeks in Birdhouse while doing an internship in a nearby hospital in Galle. Lalith and his family are great hosts. They really care for your well-being and try to help you as much as possible. They can provide you with great, local food, too. My room was spacious, clean and had everything I needed. The porch with hammocks in front of my room was great to hang out and watch birds, monkeys and other animals in the surroundings. Birdhouse is located on a smaller road just a couple minutes inwards from the beach next to a buddhist temple. Once in a while the road can get a little noisy, but overall it is a calm and quiet place. I will definitely come back if I get the chance! Stefan

Lalith and family were exceptional, couldn"t do enough for you, information about the area,where to shop, how to travel, best options, what to see and how to get there. The hosts will also cook meals and supply transport if you require it. Our room was spacious, clean and functional with a balcony to sit and relax, watch birds and squirrels playing in the trees. A nice location away from the main street area but still only a three minute walk to resturaunts, bars, shops and the beach. Overall great value and relaxing with a big thankyou to the host family for presenting a great homely atmosphere. Cheers Gary & Gail AUSTRALIA.

Room Tip: Four rooms to choose from all good,

We spent a week here. Wonderful spacious room, clean and homely with a private veranda complete with fish tank. The hosts couldn't do enough for us but were at no time intrusive. Very quiet but convenient location and all round great value.

My friend and I stayed in the family for a few days this summer. The house itself has a pleasant energy, pure and simple. Of the whole of our trip is the most pleasant place. Every morning for us prepared delicious breakfasts. Once the family cooked for us dinner - curry shrimp and squid - it was very delicious! Moreover, the house is in a quiet and peaceful location, among other hotels right in the jungle! I recommend this lovely place!
