I stayed with a friend for 3 weeks at Kumara Guest House while doing some studies att the hospital in Galle. We got recommended to stay there by a friend who had been there before. The expectations were met and exceeded. We rented the big apartment, it was very clean and just beautiful. Its a 5 min walk to the beach and the family lives just besides the place. What makes this place absolutely awesome is the superfriendly owner and his family. They really took us in and helped us with anything we wanted. The owner once cooked us dinner, fresh prawns that he bought from the market, along with food we got from their family lunch celebrating some Buddhist holiday. You get the picture, extremely friendly atmosphere! He also runs a tourist shop, so he can set you up with airport shuttles and trips around Sri Lanka. Me and my friend went for a 4 day trip organized by him, it was fantastic! We emailed him before we got to Sri Lanka, and he fixed us a taxi that picked us up from the airport in Colombo in the middle of the night. No hassle. If I ever have a friend that will go here, or if I return myself, this is the place to stay!
