We had been traveling around in Sri Lanka for 10 days, and our last stop was Unawatuna. Cecilia was actually fully booked, but managed to arrange us a room. She is such a great host! This was the perfect place to end our travel, with a huge, clean room, great pressure in the shower (luxury in Sri Lanka!), a soft, huge bed, and a super Air Condition. The busy Matara road is noisy, so is the train passing on the other side, but we didn't really mind. It's a great, relaxing beach right across the Matara road, with pretty good restaurants as well. We will be back!
Cecilia is a wealth of information. Before we even left our home country, she was helping us out with transportation options and places to stay after we our planned departure. Once we got there, she was in constant contact with us until we arrived, making sure the shared van we were in knew exactly where to drop us. Before we headed to Galle for the remainder of our trip, she suggested some restaurants for us to try out. Her number one pick was so good we went back there two night in a row.
The room is really spacious and clean, and the bed is extremely comfortable. The aircon in the room was a great way to sneak out of the midday sun and cool down a bit while taking a nap. In the evening, it was cool enough to use just the fan.
Like mentioned before, you are between the train and the road so it is noisy once the train starts running, which is about 520am. We went with it, getting up early in the morning and heading back for those chilled afternoon naps.
It only takes about 30 minutes to walk to Unawatuna from the house, or you can always take a tuk-tuk for a couple hundred rupee.
All in all, it was a fantastic stay. We would have stayed at least another night had a room been available.
I highly recommend staying here if you get a chance!
We had such a great time here! The owners were super lovely and welcoming, as well as having a good knowledge of whats going on. They recommended 2 parties to us and it was our funnest weekend in Sri Lanka so far! They also cooked us some lovely Sri Lankan food and helped us sort out some luggage issues that we had been having. The room was (email hidden) had a balcony, a powerful shower and a big double bed. we would definitely recommend!
Literally across the beach. An absolute delight staying with Cecilia and Sudda. Helped me finding everything I needed. Made my trip to Sri Lanka :) Thanks guys.
Our stay at Cecilia's place was amazing! She and her boyfriend were fantastic hosts, providing us with all the advice and help we needed to enjoy our stay in Unawatuna. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable.
The location was perfect - right across the road from the lovely Wijaya beach which has a child-friendly lagoon, a couple of restaurants and a surf break as well. Very relaxing. It's a short tuk tuk ride from the main Unawatuna beach and resorts, but this was a plus as it was much more natural and less touristy than the main beach.
We hope to return one day!
Nice clean room with a great balcony area plus excellent bathroom.
A little noisy during the day due to the main road and railway close by... but if your only in town for a few days and plan to spend all day visiting the local sights, this won't be a problem as it's quite at night.
The hosts are super friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I had a great stay during my 6 nights and can easily recommend for others looking to explore the Galle area.
