  • 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.

    Thanks Chris
    Keep in touch!

  • It was a beautiful place and so perfect for us. There were two bedrooms opening out into a common semi-open living room with a view of the sea. The decor was lovely and everything was clean and so well maintained. They let us use their kitchen and play with their cat and it was all in all just perfect!! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Cecilia at all and I wish we had but she ensured everything was ready for us and made whatever arrangements we needed. If I ever go back to Una I will stay only stay here..Such a beautiful experience!!!

  • This home is amazing! It's beautiful and well crafted and Cecilia and Sudda are just amazing hosts! The place is well designed, in a great location and clean and just smart and wonderful and CJ and Sudda treat you like family.. They are the best in the area and if you want to chill out away from the house, go across the street to Rathna's for seaside moonlit drinks and food. Yeah!!! I will return again and again!

  • Awww, this is the best house ever! Cecilia and Sudda are the most amazing hosts and the house is so beautiful and simple and well designed (by Sudda)! I love this home and the vibe is just pure heart and family! Honestly there is nothing to complain about! The house sits less than a minute away from the beach, my room looks onto the beach and the hosts are fabulous, really you are with friends when you stay here!! I have been here for over a month and everyday has been as beautiful and fulfilling as the first day I came. And with CJ and Sudda's help you really get to know the community, what to do and where to go.. They help with anything you need (so please be respectful fellow Airbnb'ers!! They are so nice they take care of you like one of their own)., The village surrounding the house is filled with family and friends and there is just a real interconnected spirit living at the house! Don't forget to ask CJ and Sudda to point you to Eva for Yoga and to one of the best seats on the beach, Rathna's Cabana's which is my favorite place to relax and watch the stars or the ocean and the surfers! If you have any questions Sudda, CJ or Nandana will help you find your way! I LOVE "ACROSS FROM THE BEACH"... i am going to miss this home everyday!!!

    Thank You We will miss you too! But there is always a place for you to return. Safe travels and come back soon

  • I love this room acroos from the beach!It's very simple (but it's well decorated) and trandtional,that's what I long for!
    The total house has three bedrooms:the 1st floor has a bedroom for CJ and Soda,the upstairs has two bedrooms for tourists(each has a bathroom).
    Even through it's very near near railway and mainroad,but it doesn't matter if you go out in the daytime.
    I must mention that CJ and Soda are very nice persons and great hosts,they gave us a lot of help when we stay there four days.I love the experience living in the house more than the room.
    我非常喜欢住在这家家庭旅馆的氛围,整幢房子只有三间卧室,楼下一间是主人的卧室和厨房、客厅,楼上是两间自带浴室的大卧室。装饰非常简单但是很有品味,而且生活的必须品都齐备,特别是厨房里面的器具一应俱全!)除此之外楼上还有一个带躺床和椅子的小客厅,每天太阳最毒辣的时候,我就会坐在躺床上,喝着金椰子,听着左边50m左右的海滩传来的阵阵浪声,隔一段时候右边的铁道会有一列火车呼啸而来。
    虽然这家旅店地处Unawatuna(到路边招手拦bus,2.5RS即可到GALLE),并且毗邻公路和铁路(白天时候确实很吵,如果同行年纪大的人士或者爱清静的人士,需要慎重),但住在这里真的非常自在惬意~
    CJ和Soda真的是超棒的主人,在没有入住的前几天,他们就关心我的行程并不断联系告知我到房子的方式。入住后,每天都会关心(无论是当面、电话、短信或者留言)我们当天玩的怎么样,并对第二天的行程提供各种信息与帮助。
    如果你想拥有一个自由自在的夏天,此处可以列入首选行列!

  • Wow, such a great place! Not only was the room very nice and clean, and the location perfect (50 m from the beach!), Cecilia and Sudda are also great hosts making you feel really welcome! They know the area very well and are a great resource if you wanna discover Sri Lanka.
