We were meant to be travelling around Sri Lanka but after one night at this wonderful accomodation we decided to spend the entire duration of our holiday here. The room we stayed in was fantastic. It was nicely decorated and very spacious. There was also an ensuite, which was also spacious and incredibly clean. Excellent value for money! The location of the guesthouse was idylic, set back from the main road, down a lane lined with banana and papaya trees. It is only a 3 minute walk from the bus stop and a 5 minute walk from the most wonderful, sandy beach. This was our first trip to Sri Lanka, and thanks to the wonderful host family who run this guesthouse, Sri Lanka has left an ever lasting impression on us. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone.

Unique Qualities: The unique quality is undoubtably the hospitality of the local family who run this place. Pushba is such a welcoming host, and the breakfasts, lemon juices and dinners she prepares for you are without a doubt some of the best you will come across, for value and taste, not only in Sri Lanka, but anywhere you might travel. Lal, the husband is one of the kindest people you will meet and he is always willing to help and make sure you have the most comfortable stay possible. He even cut down coconuts from his coconut tree for us to drink! Despite being a paying customer, you are welcomed as if you are part of the family. We were invited to see where Lal makes bricks, and also their local garden where they grow chillies, bananas, papaya and okra. A truly memorable stay!

Address: Yaddehigoda Bandaramulla, Mirissa, Sri Lanka
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Catch a bus to Mirissa and ask for directions in one of the little road side shops. It should take you no more than 10 minutes to walk there. The lane leading to the guesthouse is opposite Giragala Village.
