Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I was really looked after by Cecilia and Sudha, they truly are the perfect hosts. Their house is in a fantastic location steps away from a beautiful beach, and the room itself was clean, cool and amazing value ... I will certainly return.

    Response from Cecilia:

    Thanks Look forward to welcoming you back!

  • A very clean and spacious room and nice hosts (Cecilia and Sudda) with an easygoing & helpful demeanor... while being very resourceful. They were also able to connect me with a reliable whale watching company that ensured a great experience at sea! Thanks guys!

    Thanks Maggie
    Come back soon!

  • Great location right across the street from one of the best beach in South Sri Lanka. The only drawback is the noise from the train and road, but not a problem if you are a sound sleeper or have ear plugs. The location more the compensates, and the room is very nice! Cecilia and her boyfriend are great hosts

    Hello there! How did you enjoy the rest of your travels?

  • Cecilia was very responsive right from the beginning. She made the process simple and was extremely helpful with her suggestions. The location of the guest house was central and only a short tuk- tuk ride to Unawatuna, Talpe, and Koggalla. The place is located on a good section of beach where the reef protects from breaking waves, making it ideal for swimming. The room was simple and met our needs. We recommend this spot!

  • We have spent one night at Cecilia's place. The bedroom with bathroom was spacious and clean but with noise (railroad very close). The B&B is only 15min from Galle by bus or tuk tuk. Cecilia is very friendly and provided us some good tips. We had breakfast and dinner in the great restaurant just across the road. We recommend this B&B (if the noise is not a issue for you) !

    Thank you, you are too kind! And you must be psychic as I was just on the phone to the airlines, unfortunately no change on flights but will keep trying each day.
    Talk soon

  • I liked this house. Cecilea was very very friendly and kind.
    My room was very attractive because I could see the ocean the front of my room and I could see the railway the back.
    It was very good staying.

    Response from Cecilia:

    It was lovely to have you both visit - come back to Sri Lanka soon

  • Great stay with CJ and the flat is conveniently located near some great nightlife, food, and beaches. Highly recommended.

    Thanks Hao
    Hopefully you can return for a longer visit to Sri Lanka

  • Cecilia is an easygoing Australian host - we're lucky she (co)owns this villa with two spacious 1st floor rooms to rent. 50 m from the beach, just across the road. The road is busy, ok (remember Frogger, the arcade game?) and noisy form 8am to 8pm, but you won't sit in the house when you have this marvelous lagoon with local surfers, tropical fishes, two superb restaurants, palm trees, tuktuk dirvers... I wish I had spent there more than just 3 fantastic days...

    Thanks Lukasz! Come back soon or we'll have to come and visit you in Poland
    It was a pleasure to meet you although too short
