Can't say enough about how good our stay here was. We were welcomed by Roger & Maureen who immediately made us feel completely at home in their beautiful and utterly relaxing villa. The villa is a minutes walk up from the main Unawatuna strip so while it's really quick & easy to get into town, there's enough distance to get yo away from the noise of the road & beech bars & night clubs, which is especially useful at night as a lot of the clubs go on till after 3am. All the staff were incredibly attentive & looked after us superbly well. The facilities were spot on throughout and the rooms were really clean & air conditioned. They were also cleaned every day & that was a fist after nearly 2 weeks away.
The villa's set in a beautiful bit of forest. There's a resident monitor lizard, the occasional monkey & a load of other things going on to make it a really idyllic spot so when you add a couple of communal balconies, a great pool & a few hammocks you'd struggle not to enjoy the place.
The hospitality was fantastic. We had a new years meal put on for us which was cooked by Roger & Maureen's neighbor who cooked one of the best Sri Lankan curries I had in nearly a month on the island. The fridge is always full of beer, water & other drinks which you just tally up on a board & settle when you leave which is a great way of doing things.
Overall, you'd do well to find a better place for the cost. If you want somewhere that's supper friendly, relaxing & in a beautiful spot that's in easy reach of the main strip of Unawatuna but set back nicely so you miss out on all of the noise then this is the place.
Thanks Roger & Maureen (& Gunna) for a great stay - will pop in & say hello if I make it back some day!
