  • We loved our stay with Phil and Wathsala. The house and room is beautiful and in a great location. The breakfast was really good. The staff were very helpful. Phil and Wathsala arranged transport to and from mirissa for us. Would definitely stay here again.

  • The Spice House Mirissa was one of our most beautiful places to stay in Sri Lanka. Phil and his team are very warm people and the accommodation has a really great aura. The garden is wonderful and you can see monkeys, birds and some kind of squirrel there. The breakfast was very good and you should also have dinner there !! Very very tasty! Our room was also beautiful, we immediately felt comfortable. Many thanks to Phil and his great team!

  • Such a wonderful stay at the Spice House, beautiful house and gardens - so peaceful! Perfect location for exploring and wonderful food. All hosts and staff were brilliant, would highly recommend!

  • We had a great time with Phil and Wathsala, they are great hosts and have an amazing home. We felt very comfortable in our lovely room and enjoyed all the amenities: the pool, the gardens and the lounge. I had an amazing massage whilst there, a wonderful experience. We also had some delicious meals there! The location is great, walking distance to the beach, many shops and restaurants. Highly recommended!

  • We had a fabulous, relaxing two night stay at The Spice House, Mirissa. Excellent prompt, detailed communication from our host Phil from the moment we booked. A warm welcome, a comfortable, well thought out room with a recently added balcony with two two sun beds and a great view. Excellent food served overlooking the garden. Watching the mischievous monkeys was a bonus! Transport and whale watching arranged by Phil. Highly recommended! Thanks Phil all the best, Rosemary and Rob

  • Beautiful guest house, lovely hosts, great food! I’d definitely recommend this place.

    Ailis2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a must recommend place. The staff was top notch and they were able to help me out before and during my stay. Through them I was able to arrange transport from Colombo to Mirissa and also booked other activities through them. The place is in an excellent location, only a short walk to the beach and great restaurants. The room was spacious and the property was perfect for relaxing. My only regret is that I didn't book a longer stay. If and when I come back to Mirissa, I will stay here again!

    Unakanda sits in the heart of a small Sri Lankan village at the top of Unawatuna Kanda (hill). In addition to the White House, we have a brand new duplex with plunge pool, roof terrace and stunning views. The duplex may be booked independently or in combination with the White House. It is not currently listed, so please contact us if you are interested. Unakanda overlooks natural jungle, a Buddhist temple and the beautiful Unawatuna beach. Originally a local villagers home, it has been renovated to embrace the luscious surroundings. Contemporary design using local materials and building skills create a peaceful, relaxed environment. There are two air-conditioned bedrooms, open plan kitchen / living, and 2 large bathrooms. The house is furnished with an eclectic mix of local antiques and custom designed / locally made furniture. The kitchen / living space opens onto a covered cooking area and cantilevered, polished concrete dining pavilion that overlooks the infinity pool. Hidden below the house is a large, private galwala (‘stone hole’) filled with fish, turtles and a magnet to an array of beautiful birdlife. The garden at Unakanda is the soul of the property and the living areas have been designed to access the outdoors as much as possible. The garden features a private pool, rustic tree-house, dam and a vibrant mix of wildlife and plants. Tropical fruits grown on the property include; coconuts, bananas, papaya, passion fruit, lemons, mangoes, pineapples, jackfruit and avocado. Unakanda is a bird watchers paradise. Other wildlife include monkeys, butterflies, squirrels, and fish.
    Unakanda offers peace and tranquility just minutes away from Unawatuna Beach, the restaurants and havens of Thalpe, and historic Galle Fort. It is on a ridge road at the top of Unawatuna Kanda ("kanda" = hill) amongst local village houses. Within less than 20 mins of travelling you will find many casual and fine dining options as well as a turtle hatchery. We provide guests with a list of local eateries, attractions and useful information.
  • We had a wonderful time here! Chi was always smiling, helpful and friendly. And a brilliant cook of Sri Lankan food for us (and less spicy versions for the slightly fussier kids). Thank you!

    Hayden2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Going to the end of the world to relax in a nest called “UNAKANDA” perched in the jungle of Sri Lanka Southern Province, is a haven of peace and beauty to discover. This pretty house with all the comfort assures you a tranquility near an overflowing swimming pool overhanging the sea on the horizon, without forgetting the tasty dishes which are served to you by THI and SUJEEVA rivaling the local restaurants by their flavor. The discovery of this magnificent country with the help of MANOJ, THI and SUJEEVA to guide you in your stay, is very reassuring. Many thanks to SHAR and TIM, supported by the kindness and dedication of MANOJ, THI and SUJEEVA who made us discover their beautiful region. Three Marseillais on holiday.

    Bruno2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect little oasis tucked high up on a hill overlooking the Ocean. The photos are accurate, two beautifully appointed bedrooms and a small infinity pool were perfect for my family for our three night stay. Unawatuna has developed rapidly and so we were happy to have a retreat away from the main drag, hotels and restaurants. The best part of our stay by far were the staff, the manager Manoj was so kind and prompt in helping with our every question and request. But Chi the houseboy and cook was the shining star, his beautiful smile, chill vibe and great cooking would make anyone feel at home and want to return.

    Miles2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . Chirath’s was very helpful and cooked us Delicious meals . I would recommend this house to anyone visiting Srilanka. Romila

    Romila2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Unakanda is gorgeous, as we knew it would be. Chi and the staff at the villa were outstanding. We ate at the villa a few times because Chi was such a great cook. We really did have a wonderful break.

    Amanda2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place! Very comfortable and cozy, close to the beach. The villa is fully consistent with the photo. We are grateful for the hospitality and helpfulness of the villa staff, for excellent breakfasts and dinners!

    Анна2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible stay! An absolute piece of paradise in Unawatuna. Manoj and Chi were such an incredible team that made us feel so welcome and at home. Chi's cooking is superb. Do not waste your time and eat elsewhere!! He even gave us a casual cooking class and shared the magic of his recipes. He also went out of his way to make sure we were happy with anything else we needed. A huge thank you again for the beautiful rooftop dinner on the last night. If you're in Unawatuna and this property is available, book it. You will not be disappointed. We will be back, and a huge thanks to Shar and Tim for sharing your beautiful home with the AirBnB community.

    Lisa2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We just got back from our roundtrip in Sri Lanka. We spent the last couple of days at the Unakanda White House and we can only highly recommend it. The estate is beautiful - the interior, the pool, the view and the food. The two gentlemen working there are phenomenal, they made our stay to something special. The infrastructure is outstanding as well - you can either enjoy this retreat and quietness, or simply spend your time at the beach in one of the countless restaurants or bars. We will definitely be back soon.

    Pepper Jungle House is an architecturally designed, fully staffed villa perched on top of a lush jungle ridge. Nestled within landscaped gardens, the villa offers complete privacy. It offers the serenity of being inland whilst being just a few minutes away from the beaches and 4km to UNESCO Galle Fort. The villa is a blend of imported luxury and local charm. The villa comes fully staffed, including a private chef. Staff will go the extra mile to ensure you love your time in at Pepper.
    Light, contemporary, and very private spacious villa.
    The property overlooks the jungle towards the horizon and the Indian Ocean. The home is located approximately 5 minutes inland from the nearby village with shops, restaurants, and more.
  • Our stay at Pepper Jungle House was just perfect. Before we reached there James was super helpful in coordinating for our requirements. Once we reached the place - Chaminda & Sarath looked after us really well. The location of the house is just perfect. We tried to soak in the view and environment as much as we could. Highly recommend it to anyone who’s visiting Sri Lanka.

    Karan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Super modern villa in the jungle near the ocean. This is the type of housing in which you begin to think about moving to warm countries for a long time) Not typical Sri Lankan architecture, stylish furniture and good plumbing. Branded shampoo, conditioner and shower gel with a pleasant smell. It can be seen that the owner approaches the matter with a soul and stands for the convenience of the guests. Great internet. The jungle makes relaxation unique - wild animals are at arm's length. We really enjoyed. At the same time, we were not embarrassed that in the whole villa an easy modernization is required. These are all trifles that do not affect vacation. caretakers of the villa have prepared a delicious dinner that we shared with friends, yes, perhaps, at a price it can be compared with restaurants nearby (12,000 rupees), but relaxing at home after surfing is gorgeous. Recommend

    Nikolay2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic villa to stay in after a tour around the island. You will be welcomed by a kind and helpful staff which does everything to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. We really recommend this house to others! The pictures are as beautiful as the reality. But be prepared that you have the animals very close to you, but we though this was a fantastic experience.

    Emmy2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked the villa, stylish interior, comfortable accommodation, very polite, friendly and unobtrusive staff. Responsive manager, a couple of times there were problems with electricity and the Internet, but they were immediately solved. The villa is located on a mountain in the jungle, we saw an iguana and many monkeys, some were right on the territory of the villa - a great immersion in the local nature.

    Olga2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • What an absolutely amazing 5 days! Chaminda and the team made our stay so special. I would highly highly recommend staying here. We didn't want to leave. The best 5 days of our 3 week trip. Thank you Pepper Jungle House!

    Jessica2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing two nights at pepper house. Loved the villa and its setting and especially its staff who were great and accomendating. Would love to come back soon John

    Self contained apartment with 4G WIFI...three balconies, living room with books/ kitchen space, bedroom and bathroom. All mod cons, microwave, toaster, gas cooker, refrigerator, washing machine, etc included.
    APARTMENT DETAILS: Self contained, three balconies, living room, bedroom and bathroom. All mod cons, 4G WiFi, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, gas cooker, washing machine, and hair dryer all inclusive, no extra charges. A home away from home! This is a hidden treasure in Galle Fort- a UNESCO world heritage site. Myself and my wife Moninna are retired bankers and are most happy to welcome and host you in the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. Our homely self contained apartment has full facilities in case you wish to eat in. At the bottom of our street there is a little corner shop which sells many things you may need, or take a short tuk tuk trip into Galle town for a larger supermarket. We can recommend a good driver for you. Galle Fort itself is also full of delightful cafes and restaurants which offer food throughout the day from breakfast-dinner.
  • My husband and I have been traveling for 5 months and Ranjit’s flat has been a stand out experience. It is places like this that make Airbnb so special - friendly host, helpful tips, unique space and lots of character. Also the unit is on a quiet street and after 3 weeks in Sri Lanka hearing dog fights most nights, we had blissfully quiet sleeps. Thoughtful touches and great to spend time with Ranjit and his wife. Very close to all the cute stores and restaurants in Galle Fort but away from the tuk tuks and bustle. Perfect spot.

    Lauren2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Galle Fort, and would recommend Ranjit's self-contained accommodation within the fort. It's a wonderful location, with friendly hosts, and great hospitality. Thankyou.

    Brigid2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely spot to enjoy Galle from right in the centre . The accommodation is full of beautiful things and birds on the tree outside your bedroom

    Neil2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ranjit and his family is very welcoming, warm and social, they went the extra mile in helping us with transfers and good tips. The place is lovely with super restaurant and scenic views just around the corner. The garden inside with lovely trees, flowers and wild life such as squirrels, birds and 2 turtles made the stay even better. Highly recommended place with an extra touch.

    Viktor2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place to stay! Ranjit and his wife are so welcoming and very helpful. Perfect location, great apartment, we couldn’t have asked for any more! Would 100% recommend this place to anyone!

    Madison2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of those memorable places that Airbnb is renowned for. Great host amazing home and wonderful hospitality. What more can you ask for.

    Mohan2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This gorgeous vintage unit was so charming we could hardly believe it! The location is amazing, and the hospitality sensational. A truly stylish and comfy stay, wish we had more time.

    Angus2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Ranjit’s apartment! It is lovely - two balconies, nice breeze through the apartment, beautiful decor, very spacious. It is in a perfect location, walking distance to many restaurants and sights in Galle. Ranjit and his wife were lovely to speak with and great hosts. Definitely recommend this place!

  • Villa pinthalyia is everything that is advertised and much much more . The place itself is stunning and a wonderful location right onto the water . It is true that there is a busy road at the back but this is true of so many beach locations in the south Security is no issue as there is a member of staff 24/7 and they really do look after . Chagada serves glorious breakfasts and couldn’t do enough for us . Sunil was a terrific host . And yes do get him to cook definitely best meal we had on holiday and I intend to go and cook like him I was here with 2 old uni friends It was an idyllic place to meet Can’t recommend enough

    Susan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for the lovely stay, Sunil. We knew we were going to love it even before we got there when you were kind enough to let us check in so early and didn't even charge us for it. This is a place we are all definitely returning to. From the views to the hospitality; this was a holiday we enjoyed thoroughly. Even the breakfast that Sunil very sweetly made on my request on the last day, was phenomenal! All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Unawatuna.

    Sangeeta2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Sunil's Villa for 4 nights and the stay with him was absolutely fantastic! Everything went like clockwork ... Sunil organized an airport transfer for us and after about 2 hours we arrived at the accommodation. The villa is an oasis and corresponded exactly to the pictures in the Airbnb. Sunil and his team do a great job and are super helpful! We were with the whole family (2 children 11 and 3 years) and also enjoyed the proximity to the beach and the pool ... If you like it stylish, there is a new, stylish beach club on the beach 50m and if you walk about 200m on the beach in the other direction (or a tuktuk at high tide) you will come to Dalawela Beach, where you can swim with turtles. Great beach for the whole family! All in all a great start to our Sri Lanka vacation ...

    Jasmin&Fabian2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! We (family with two children, 5 & 7) enjoyed a 10 day stay in the villa. The team around Sunil made our time in the villa unique with great warmth. We already miss the delicious breakfast, the wonderful Sunil curries, the sea view, the beach in front of the house, the beautiful pool, the fine fruit juices and fruits ... 100% recommendable.

    Marco2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a nice villa, just in front of the sea, best service, excellent breakfast, fully equipment. And 1 min walk to a very nice Italian & seafood restaurant, pizza is really nice. My parents are saying they want to visit Sri Lanka again, and just stay in the villa for a week.

    Shiny2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The house is awesome. The independent house is on the beach when I go out. I cook and eat at night. The housekeeper and the boss insist on helping us wash the dishes. The breakfast in the morning is super rich. Unfortunately, I only stayed one night. Hope you can come and stay! awesome!

    Paopaoxiaowa2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sunil and his team are fantastic hosts. The six of us had a great time in the villa, which is located directly on the beach. Sunil takes care of everything, organizes tours on request, is a personal city guide and cooks incredibly delicious food in the evening. It was by far the best Airbnb experience we've had. Chapeau.

    Christof2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • To sum up in one word , AMAZING. First time using an Airbnb and it was truly astounding. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The house and the view was serene. House keeper was very helpful. Right next to Angel Beach Club and many other beach shacks. All the restraunts on the Dewala Road are just a 5-7 min tuk tuk ride

    We have three room types available in the villa so you have the option to choose. **Room types are subject to availability. * Deluxe Triple Room Non A/C (First Floor) - Though first floor rooms are non A/C there will be a private balcony towards the scenic view for you to enjoy and due to the breeze and the proper ventilation you get from the large window type balcony doors and heat insulation they will not be that warm. * Deluxe Triple Room With A/C (Ground Floor) - Since it is in the ground floor, scenery view from the elevation will be not there. Though, you will not miss the view since there is a separate first floor Lounge Balcony for anyone to access. And also the ground floor rooms are located along a river bank with a nature friendly environment. * Deluxe Triple Room With A/C (First Floor and Second Floor) - This rooms have both air conditioning and the private balcony. In all room types: all other facilities are same. All room types have their own good reviews from our past guests.

Rates on all are same. * There is no difference in our listing #1, listing #2 and listing #3. We have created three listings to avoid availability issues because AirBNB blocks the dates of a listing when it gets a reservation despite of us having three more rooms available. So if the specific dates you looking are not available in one listing, try the other one it might have luck. ** If you wish to have a room type please inquire us before sending the reservation request. If you send the reservation request we are bound to accept it since we have availability; even if the room type available is another room type.

  • We had a wonderful 2-week stay at Peacock Villa! Everything was perfect. Charindu is very friendly, kind and attentive host, always there to help you and provide anything you may need. All hotel staff was also very friendly and always smiling. The hotel area is very green and well maintained. Our room was comfortable, spacious and clean with a balcony with amazing view, and our 3 y.o son had a separate single bed. Breakfasts were generous and delicious, it was so nice to start a day with a plate of various fruits, pancakes, scrambled eggs and very good coffee. We really enjoyed every minute we spent at Peacock Villa and highly recommend it to everyone going to Mirissa!

  • Very beautiful house, there are peacocks in the courtyard, squirrels haunt, and the environment is pleasant. The home is fully equipped with new air-conditioning, hot water and powerful washing supplies. The landlord is also very good. You must answer questions and respond promptly. Highly recommend to everyone!

    Alice2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place! Very welcoming and accommodating. Away from the noisiest/busiest parts of Marissa, but close enough so they're on tap. Great breakfast. Would stay here again!

    Michael2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    Dave2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Peacock Villa is a lovely guest house with spacious, nicely decorated rooms and large balconies. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, the arrival drink (an iced coffee milkshake of some sort) was absolutely delicious. There was a water tank where you could refill your water bottle which was super handy. The beach towels were a nice touch too. We opted for the Sri Lankan breakfast which was superb. And of course Simba, the lab, is always happy to see you. Thank you for a brilliant stay Peacock Villa!

    Amy2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Peacock Villas - nice rooms plus nice touches such as a boogie board and towels to bring to the beach, a nice breakfast, great location close to the beach and #1 Dewminis Roti. Above all, a very welcoming environment!

    Aram2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very good room, the landlord brother raised a Labrador simbe, because I raised the dog so I chose this house, it did not disappoint me, I prepared ice coffee for us, and it was delicious. Let us sit downstairs in the living room, etc., go upstairs to open the air conditioner to cool the room, and also help us carry the luggage to the 3rd floor, a very beautiful house! There are many monkeys outside the balcony that will climb up. If you are afraid, it is best to lock the door, otherwise you will be afraid to be opened to take things! Because the next day at 6 o'clock in the morning, I went out to watch the whales, and the landlord actually got up, indicating that the guests are also very respectful.

  • The house is really good located between tropical trees with some monkeys and tropical birds in it. The house is nice decorated and the terrace is in the shadows. Leela makes the breakfast end the dinner for you if you want, she is a sweet and nice person. The beach is reachable in only 5 minutes drive where you can swim with children because the see is quite here.

    Arletta & Willem2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Mataramba Lodge! The house is located at a quiet and beautiful spot and the pool was our favorite! Leela is such a amazing woman, welcoming us and made us tasty breakfast. The only bad was that the place was not fully prepared when we arrived and the power was gone for about 5 hours. But I really recommand staying here for some days while visiting Unawatuna!

    Kamilla2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Cecilia is a really good host with a lot of good advice ! The house is very cute and you will feel quickly at home !

    Helschger2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cecilia Villa is set in a lovely village. She has a lovely neighbourhood and we were lucky to have her lovely neighbours cooking. Beautiful location and very peaceful. Great area for bird watching from the pool!

    Brooke2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Janin2020-01-30T00:00:00Z

    Johanna2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mataramba is the perfect place for 2-4 people to sit and do nothing in peaceful and quiet surroundings. The birdlife is amazing and we saw monkeys, monitor lizards and peacocks everyday. The delightful Leela cooked amazing Sri Lankan breakfasts and dinners for us daily at a small fee. The road can be a bit tricky after heavy rain and you may have to walk for a few minutes only, ( a small torch would be useful to bring in your suitcase), but the location is worth it. The tuk-tuk driver Amila, recommended by Leela is a very sweet young man who speaks good English and is a careful driver. We highly recommed Mataramba. Jerry and Lotte

    Lotte2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • I loved Mataramba lodge. Felt like it was a hidden gem amidst the lush Sri Lankan jungle.. worth the adventure to get there! Cecilia is an incredible host, very responsive over message and happy to accomodate whatever your needs are - she helped us before, during and after our stay. I would absolute love to visit again, we already miss the amazing private pool! Leela the housekeeper is a sweetheart as well, she always wanted to make the stay as comfortable as possible for us.

    Located in the front of the property, Queen Room 1 sleeps two in a queen sized bed and features a small but functional private bathroom with a shower. It has a private entrance just off the verandah. The room is full of all the important details and standard creature comforts: ensuite bathrooms, queen beds, super soft high quality linens, plush towels, rain showers with solar hot water, overhead fans, high ceilings, free wifi and jungle views. Breakfast is included in our room rates.
    A chilled haven, a friendly abode, a gathering place. Set back from the busy main road in a traditional little village, surrounded by lush jungle, with a secluded beach at the end of the road, The Kip is the gem we have always dreamed of. Surrounded by lush jungle and the sound of surf breaks, The Kip is our humble hideaway in the middle of the Sri Lankan South Coast, home to all things slow, sustainable and creative. Following the 'less is more' ethos throughout our rooms, you’ll get a taste of the slow life. The villa is centered around its open air courtyard, while at the back of the property banana, coconut and avocado trees aplenty make for a place to unwind, relax and embrace your green thumb.
    Ahangama is a little pocket that still has magical authenticity. It’s escaped globalisation and mainstream tourism and we're passionate about it staying that way.
  • The Kip is a stunning place to stay, it is incredibly stylish and has a great vibe with space to chill and to meet others. Brunch was also a real highlight! Sadly our time was cut short but we would highly recommend staying here and we hope to visit again soon! Phoebs was very accommodating and understanding when we had to arrange last minute travel which was hugely appreciated!

  • What a gorgeous place! We stayed at The Kip for 8 nights and had such a lovely time there. Seddy & Phoebe have made a truly beautiful and special little place here. Their whole team is delightful and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Will really miss waking up in this idyllic place and hanging out with their lovely dogs Foxy and Deliliah (and sometimes shy Ruby with her helicopter tail-wag). Hope to come back some day... and not just for the incredible breakfasts!

    Melissa2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful building with stylish touches. We really enjoyed the breakfasts and the company of their dogs! The room was comfortable with all the required amenities.

    Lily2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t know where to start. What a paradise! The house is beautifully situated a few hundred meters from the noisy main road in between palm trees: so peaceful. The interior is eco-chic-cool-well picked out details. Love it!!!! The best breakfast I’ve had in SL, and the all-veggie dinner menu is Italian inspired and very refined. So good! Room is beautiful, bed is comfy and the all over vibe is just perfect. I don’t know if it was a coincidence: but it was also lovely NOT to have tons of kids running around and babies crying 😂 easy and quick communication with the hosts. I’ll definitely come back - hope this little paradise stays the same ❤️

    Anne2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The Kip was our favourite place to stay on our trip to Sri Lanka. We wish we could’ve stayed longer. The place itself is great-so many nice spaces to lounge about when you’re not at the gorgeous little beach down the road. The included breakfast is delicious and the dinner is really special too.

  • I couldn’t put into words how much my Mum and I loved The Kip! The most beautiful place to relax and unwind. Check in was so friendly and the little local tips cards are such a brilliant idea. We stayed in The Studio which was so delightful with an outside shower, a brilliant tree house where I sat early morning and watched the monkeys jumping along the banana trees and the most perfect decor. The breakfasts are the best thing I’ve eaten, a perfectly curated list to pick from creating a platter of all your favourite things and the dinner, fresh delicious pasta! The staff and owners were so welcoming, friendly and couldn’t be more helpful and the three dogs, well it was sad to say goodbye to those lovelies! I will certainly return to The Kip and I can’t wait! Thank you all for everything xx

    Jenifer2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • What. A. Space. One of the most stylish spaces I've stayed across the world. I was in Suite 02 and The Studio; both are magnificent. Clean, wonderful aesthetics, and calm spaces. Note that neither have A/C but powerful fans should suffice. I was particularly impressed with The Studio. It's a beautiful little space, tucked away at the back. The outdoor shower is amazing in the mornings, and it has a little ladder leading up to a chill out area in the water tower to watch the stars from! A beautiful little space. The restaurant is also amazing; great vegetarian food, breakfasts and some of the best coffee in Sri Lanka. Note that it is closed on Monday, which means that The Kip is beautifully quiet for chilling out in if you are a guest on this day! Thanks Phoebe and team for a great visit - will be back soon!

    Shamil2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I really can not reccomend The Kip enough. Everything between check-in and check-out was simply perfect. The refreshing welcome drink, the atmosphere, the café, the room, the hospitality - could not ask for more.

    Helene2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had a peaceful and wonderful stay at the kip. The highlight was with no doubt the great food and staff!!

    Caroline2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely few days at The Kip. The space is relaxing, peaceful and friendly; we were well looked after. We stayed in the Studio, a beautiful private space with a an amazing outdoor jungle shower! So many personal touches which made our stay extra special. Highlight for me was The Kip's cafe, the food is tasty and the coffee is good! Lots to do in the area, Phoebs helped arrange yoga classes, massages and dinners galore for us. Sandu the local tuk tuk driver is always on hand to take you where you need.

    Cameron2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at The Kip in Ahangama. The place is very beautiful and also thoughtful equipped. We loved our little studio with its outside-bathroom! The breakfast was very delicious, you can choose from some ( vegan friendly) options. The staff was also very, very helpful, we got everything we needed or wanted. The main house is perfect for an afternoon chill, you can drink some tea and cuddle with the dogs. We felt very welcomed and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

    Antonia2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at "the studio" or as we called it the "jungle hut" and enjoyed our days a lot at The Kip a lot. Ever tiny detail in the house and garden is so lovely and the whole concept is just wonderful. Just one thing to remember when booking the studio: if you are afraid of geckos, spiders or toads, do not rent this studio or you might not enjoy your stay, because the bathroom is outdoors. Other than that you will have a lovely time and have a great shower next to tropical plants and nature.

    Ute2019-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • The best stay we had in Sri Lanka - cannot fault one thing. The people, place, food and atmosphere is like nowhere else we have been in Sri Lanka, let alone on any other holiday. Thank you! X

  • We had a lovely stay at the Nuga house! Just a 2 minute walk to the beach, its location is really unbeatable. Really stylish touches too, and a very cool shower. Great pool, and a thoughtful outdoor shower as well for when you come back from the beach. The yoga classes offered above the cafe are also really lovely—$10/person to take a class.

    Gregory2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Nuga House is very nice, located a 5 min walk from Kabalana beach where you can Surf and just relax and go for a swim. Everyone was very welcoming when we arrived and helpful. On fridays they arrange Amazing big dinner and they have two friendly dogs for cuddles :) We recommend This place to anyone!

    The place is a cosy, clean accommodation 30m from the Beach. Nearby there are Local and western restaurants on walking distance, small shops and the most gorgeous beach. The surf is great close by, a spot called the rock for intermediated and beginners. The sunset view from our rooftop it's outstanding you are welcome to gram some coconuts yourself from our tree.
    We (Yaya & Shehan) take care of the property daily and our place is social and friendly, we love to take care of our guests and give them the most amazing Sri Lankan experience.
    Picture a day with us, wake up in the morning and go for a quick dip in the beach in front of our place, come back and grab a cup of Sri Lankan premium tea and take time to relax. Lunch is ready by 12 at the local restaurant next door, amazing rice and curry Buffett, with lots of vegan options, all you will need if you've been surfing. Take a walk down to the beach and watch the sunset at any of the bars at the beach. Dinner time you can either go to any of the restaurants in the area, 5 min walk, or grab a tuk-tuk and go to Weligama for a fish feast by the ocean.
  • the home from yaya was so good, chill vibes and clean room! u can use the kitchen, the garden and from the roof you can even see the ocean.. beside of that, yaya and her boyfriend are so smart and help you with everything you need:-) thank you!

    Alex2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place to stay around Kalabana (5min walk), clean and comfy. You can enjoy the kitchen and the garden also. Really good value for the price! Special thanks for Yaya and her boyfriend who were really nice and helpful!

    Anne-Flore2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A super place to stay near an amazing beach ! I recommanded it 100%.

    Sarah-Emilie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is super cute and really great value for money. It’s a chill vibe, easy walk to the beach and you can cook in the kitchen if you want to. It’s very close to the train line, but I only heard one or two trains through the night. I would happily stay here again :)

    Mirella2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • A friendly place with a kind of community feeling. Hosts are trying hard to make the guests feel welcomed and built a kind of a friend's visit expirience. There is a.big kitchen to use. Only downside is the noise. It is right next to the railroad and the street. Good value if you are ok with occadional train shake.

    Ilija2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, it was supernice to stay in Yaya’s end Sherhan’s guest house! The design of the apartment is made in eco style, very lovely. There is a cosy garden with banana trees where you can chill and eat fruits:) also sea is very close, just across the road. And surf spots are 3- 5 min walking, it was one of important things why I choosed this place to stay. And because of really friendly and chilly atmosphere we decided to stay here longer than supposed to. Cool home, thank you so much guys and wish you good luck with rooftop bar end everything!

    Raisa2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • I was received wonderfully by her boyfriend Daniel since the young couple was working at the time. There were no problems with the check in time at all. I was there a lot earlier than previously stated. It is a wonderful simple guest house that is really justified for the price and location. Yaya and Shihan themselves are very friendly, open and accommodating. They did their best to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Not only did they organize an inexpensive taxi for me, I also spent New Years with them. I look forward to seeing you again. :)

    Beautiful double room with amazing ocean views from bed. You’ll get panoramic views in this room with private balcony. The room rate always include our vegan smoothie bowl. Coffee, tea and water throughout the day. This room has shared bathrooms outside. Nice simple design bathrooms in titanium.
  • Iggy and Gitte are more than hospitable and helpful. They are always available to help and advise your guests. There were very tasty breakfast bowls and the drinks flat is a blessing in the heat on the island. The prospect of more is fantastic, but not for those who are sensitive to noise when the surf is rustling and you want to keep the windows open because of the heat. Then Ohropax must be in the luggage

    Anja2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Super friendly owners and hospitality. Iggy is a very good surf teacher; Gitte is always smiling and letting you have perfect breakfast with smoothie bowls every morning. We will definitely come back and stay at this beautiful ocean view room. Highly recommended!

    Asli2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Our villa is situated in a quiet area with amazing wildlife, just some minutes away from beautiful beaches and surfspots. The villa is suitable for adventures travelers, couples & families. We are an animal friendly house with some rescue dogs and cats in the house. There is daily yoga sessions in our outdoor yoga sala, next to the pool. Our breakfast is plantbased and known to be one of the best in the south. Both breakfast and yoga is included in the price
    At our villa we hope you will feel like part of the family. You will love the cozy atmosphere, the vibe and will hopefully feel like home, away from home. Our villa is suitable for adventures travelers, couples and families. Every morning we serve a delicious breakfast, mostly with plantbased ingredients. What about vegan pancakes, gluten free seedy buns and chia pudding. Some nights we do a vegan buffe of either traditional rice and curry or european influensed dishes. We also do outdoor movie nights, watching a movie under the stars.
    Our house is situated in a quiet area with a lot of wildlife just around the corner. Only a few minutes away you will find lovely beaches with crystal clear water and surf sites with perfect waves. Shopping and nightlife is about 15-20 minutes away with tuk tuk.
  • If you’re into yoga, yummy breakfast and nice people this is the perfect spot for you in Ahangama. Mikaela and her Team were so kind and always helpful (Pathma <3 <3). The breakfast was incredible yummy, especially the chia pudding with fresh fruits. Totally recommend this place but you should consider that everybody is getting up around 7am to do Yoga. As the walls are quite thin you hear the people in the garden or in the main room. As it was our first stop after we arrived in Sri Lanka we were a bit jet lagged, didn’t attend any yoga class and wanted to sleep in which didn’t worked out so well. But it was our own fault as it’s pretty clear that Mikaelas accommodation is a Yoga and Surf Villa :-) Thank you for everything and it was a pleasure to meet all of you :-) Nina and Mario

    Nina2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • a great place, great yoga, great food and lovely people. we felt very welcoming and we can definitly recommend this place!

    Sabrina Vinale2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Although I only stayed at LUST for one night, it was thoroughly enjoyable! The room was gorgeously decorated with all the right touches. Breakfast was amazing and I squeezed in an evening yin and morning vinyasa class. Definitely recommend to all who are looking to stay somewhere around Ahangama. The perfect space to relax and chill out in :).

    Peta2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Lust! Everything we could ask for. Nora & Niklas (managers this season) were the most amazing hosts. They were always available, helped us with everything and gave a lot of useful tips. I can really recommend to borrow the bikes and do a small tour into the countryside if it’s cloudy/rainy one day. We went for maybe a 45 min tour and saw a whole new part of Sri Lankan nature. Also, must mention that the breakfast is amazing!

    Isabelle2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it

    Michael2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 5 nights at Lust and by the end we felt truly part of the family. Mikaela, Maz, Gina and Will were wonderful hosts. We started the day with Gina’s yoga by the pool shalla- she was such a good teacher and my boyfriend and I felt really at ease with her clear instructions, given that we are both new to yoga. There are beaches nearby and plenty of restaurant options written in reception to help you navigate your way through the great food the area has to offer. Sampat who works for the villa drove us in his tuk tuk most days and is very friendly. The rooms are bright and colorful with air con and daily cleaning. The breakfast was superb- delicious vegan food. The best part of our stay was probably sunset drinks at the lighthouse down the road and the rice and curry night- sitting on the long communal table with candles and great food and interesting, friendly company will be in our memories for a long time. I would 100% recommend staying at Lust and hope to visit again when we return to Sri Lanka.

    Victoria2019-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lust Yoga is the Perfect getaway if you’re looking for a place where you are welcomed and treated like family. We enjoyed the yoga lessons and the delicious brekkie. Highly recommended!

    Astrid2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem -- I'm so happy to have found Sistersaway! You instantly feel like you're being welcomed home when you arrive. The entire property is gorgeous, with the sisters living next door to the 4-room building for guests. The garden spaces have areas to chill/relax/work/read etc., as does the exterior balcony/patio of each room. The rooms themselves are super spacious, with ample space to unpack your things, thoughtful touches everywhere, a small kitchen, as well as bathroom with a phenomenal shower. AC works great, and the beds are super comfy. Truly though, it is Burcu & Burcin that make staying here absolutely 100% a must if coming to Ahangama. They are so helpful and thoughtful with their tips and suggestions. Likewise, the included Turkish breakfast is delish! While we had noted a few places we'd wanted to eat in the AM in the area, we never ended up skipping breakfast made by the sisters. If available for your dates, stop looking elsewhere and book Sistersaway.

    Mario2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent on SistersAway few days. The house in the jungle in 10 minutes walk from the beach. Here you can see monkeys, peacocks, squirrels, light-bugs. In the morning so amazing sounds around you. The room is clean and with nice design. There is also a little kitchen so you can cook if you want. The owners are really nice and friendly people, they helped us with transfer and other issues. Breakfast was very tasty with homemade butter, jam and cheese. Really loved it.

    Sergey2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The room was so clean and decorated simply beautiful. Their hospitality was also great which they arranged our tours and helped to figure our daily plans. Cant forget the delicious Turkish breakfast. You feel yourself like in your home and family.

  • A stunning place. On the water with a lovely Vista from the balcony. Turtles swim out the front as close as 10metres from the house. Easy to find. The room was delightful, shower takes about 3-5 mins to heat up but not a problem once it's on. The housekeeper was out of this world and looked after as if we were family. He even made us a Sri Lankan breakfast on request. The only issue with the location, is that you need to tuk tuk or bus to most restaurants/ activities. Gets my full endorsement! Sam + Nikki.

  • If you are in the south of Sri Lanka, you better stay at LUST ! For us it was a pleasant experience - as beginners we really enjoyed the yoga classes and the amazing breakfast! Mikaela is providing a list for lunch and dinner places and the restaurants are really good around here ! Strong recommendation!

    Malte2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • family atmosphere, great breafast and inspirational sometimes challenging yoga sessions! ✨🧘🏽‍♀️a lot of cute bars and good restaurants nearby, got a lot of good recommendations from mikaela and the other members of the team. some surf spots nearby 🤙🏽 good vibes there!

    Valentina2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at LUST was just super nice! The yoga in the morning and the delicious and mostly vegan breakfast afterwards is the perfect start into the day. It's a beautiful little house with lots of love in the furniture and design. I felt like home! All the people from LUST were super friendly and always up for a chat or for recommendations on what to do. The best thing about LUST were the dogs - they just love to cuddle and keep the house safe! I can definitely recommend and I'll be back myself!

    Paulina2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved being at this cozy place! we felt very welcome and were super happy with all of the staff, the vegan breakfast, the complimentary water, the dogs, the restaurant tipps and with the yoga classes. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who‘s looking for a home away from home.

    Andy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the villa! Good location, great yoga & breakfast, nice pool and helpful tips about restaurants, beaches, etc.. Also the tuktuk and the scooters (for rent) were very reasonably priced.

  • We loved our time at Lust! Great food, amazing hosts and super friendly staff. Niklas & Nora were really kind and always helpful. Totally recommend the place. The walls are quite thin though, so in the morning you hear people in the main room. But wasn’t really disturbing a lot.

    Lucija2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The best value for money stay I had in Sri Lanka. Was magic waking up right next to the beach and being able to walk out for a swim. It’s minimalist beach vibe and quiet but also right in Ahangama for cafes etc. Christina is super sweet and accomodating. I’ll definitely be back :)

    Charlotte2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cristina was a great host. The place was very cute with attention to details. From the moment we got there we were treated like we were guests in her own home. Cristina gave great advice on things to to and places to eat. She knew our vibe. I highly recommend staying here as the location is great. Out of the major crowded towns of Galle and Unawatuna but an easy scooter ride away.

    Chris2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn’t imagine a better host! We could ask Christina about everything and she showed us the best places to eat and things to experience in the local area. A brand new place, very clean with a lovely decor. We had the room with the best view directly to the sea. We loved it!

    Oda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and stylish rooms, all details are very thought out. The hosts - two sisters - are very friendly and welcoming! They recommended a lot of interesting places, including very cool surfing lessons from European residents! Divine Turkish breakfasts, with homemade ingredients! Highly recommend!

    Serhii2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay with even lovelier hosts! Breakfast is fantastic and the room is super clean and comfortable. It’s off the main road, so you get to feel the privacy of nature, but only a short walk/tuk tuk drive and you’re close to everything Ahangama has to offer. I’ll definitely make sure to visit again in the future <3

    Jordan2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Feels like you are visiting a close friend! Good location, positive vibrations from the hosts and delicious home made breakfast! Definitely recommend for a stay!

    Marina2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • If I had to say something about this place is how great the hostess are, it was he best breakfast we had in all our trip ( I’m a food lover so believe me when I write this) they are joyful, friendly and helpful. The room is as in the pictures is 10 min walking to the main road or 2 min Tuk Tuk , many good restaurants close by and also yoga and surf schools.

    Ruth2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended! Amazing hosts to start with, thanks so much Burcu & Burcin for the experience. From superb location of the place to the spacious, clean rooms that clearly tell a lot about the great taste of the hosts; from the DELICIOUS Turkish breakfast to the authentic connection these girls are able to build with their guests, I’m amazed by everything. Anyone travelling around here, don’t miss out! Thanks again girls! 🥰

    Nur2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay! Sisters take care of everything gladly and it makes a huge difference. I felt like a friend’s home from the first minute. They were so friendly and helpful! ( I had some troubles and they saved me everytime.) They serve a great breakfast in the lovely garden and you can get really useful travel tips while you’re eating that delicious plate. I’m a bit of sensitive about cleanliness and this place was so satisfying, I mean SPARKLING! <3 Location is quite good, it’s close to everything ( beach, surf schools, shops etc.) but still away from the noise and crowd. I’m definitely coming back for a long stay Sisters, save your surf advices for me:) And, thanks so much again!

    Ahangama, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

    SPECIAL LOW SEASON RATE! Welcome to our lovely colonial-era antique house in Ahangama set within a beautiful tropical garden just 1 km from nearest beach through bright green paddy fields. Make yourself at home; it is a brilliant base to explore the area. There's much to suit all ages & interests: from beaches, surf, swimming pools & yoga to turtles, tea estates, spas & great places to shop, drink & eat. ** Includes on-site watchman/gardener & daily housekeeping (meals can be arranged too)
    The house is furnished with a mixture of antiques which complement its neutral colour scheme of white walls and polished concrete and its rich green surroundings. The kitchen is set up to be used by guests and is very well-equipped with new 6-ring stove, oven, large fridges, pans, tableware etc. We also have a washer/dryer, clothes line and plenty of towels, additional bedlinen, yoga mats etc.
    A lovely peaceful neighbourhood. There are two small local temples a 10 minute walk away, you may hear temple noise in the distance, which we find very charming. We often walk into Ahangama town from the house, which takes about 15-20 minutes, and is a lovely scenic walk past the temple and through paddy fields. The neighbours are very friendly, the children will always wave and say hello to practice their English!
  • Ciara’s house is a true gem nested in the outskirts of Ahangama. The beach is just a 20 min stroll away and the house itself is an antique building decorated with carefully chosen furniture and objects, creating a tropical haven. We stayed several weeks here with our baby, and were so well looked after by Ciara’s staff. Highly recommend to arrange dinner with Rasika (the house keeper), her curry is the best we have tasted! Janaka (tuktuk driver/house manager) is super nice and accommodating. He knows the area well, does not overcharge, drives safely, he is the only driver you will need. Ciara is super easy to communicate with and left a very exhaustive house book. The location is perfect for exploring south Sri Lanka, and close by several surf spots. We will definitely come back!

    Lo2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our second time in this amazing colonial villa. Well situated in calm area in Ahangama. The house is beautiful and carefully renovated, keeping the original atmosphere and details. Completely private and beautiful garden. House staff is great, making every effort to make your stay comfortable and easy. High service level. We’ll come back again!

    Jonas2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ahangama is low key option not for from the tourist strips that are only 10 minutes away. The house is exactly as described in a reasonable secluded setting not far from the town and beach. The nearest beach is about a 15 minutes walk hidden away off the main street, very clean and safe swimming. The on-site cook provided nice breakfasts and a couple of dinners. Would highly recommend

    Craig2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This a a really beautiful home! Even better than the pictures show. It is spacious and comfortable, and we really enjoyed staying in this 120 year old historical home. The garden is large and beautiful. It was great having Janaka onsite with a tuk tuk to easily take us to local beaches and restaurants (and pick us up). He also took us to Galle -- and since there were 4 of us, he arranged a second tuk tuk so we could all go, at a very reasonable price. And we really enjoyed Rasika's breakfasts. The location of the house is good -- only a few minutes by tuk tuk to the nearest beach, although we went to ones about 10-15 mins away. Ciara was very easy to communicate with, and also provided a very detailed description of nearby sights and restaurants. We were only there two nights, not nearly long enough to explore the area. So, we hope we will return some day. I highly recommend this home!

    Paul2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay. Great value for money!

    Daniel2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for two months and Ciara and Ted's house and we absolutely loved it. It's a large colonial house, very spacious. Clean and tastefully decorated. I spent a lot of time in the courtyard or on the large terrace, talking, reading, relaxing. The house is also very well equipped, the kitchen lacks nothing (huge fridge, mixer, toaster, stove, oven, etc.) and we cooked a lot at home, there are yoga mats available, plenty of towels, cushions, etc. A washing machine and enough space to hang your clothes to dry. Large four poster beds with mosquito nets. No AC but ceiling fans and you can leave the windows open during night. We worked a lot from home, internet was so-so, sometimes good, sometimes really bad. But we always managed although it needed some patience sometimes. Netflix worked great :) The garden is a dream. Very spacious, green, a paradise. So many animals (water monitor, monkeys in the trees, mongoose, squirrels, etc.). I looooooooved it. There are three employees: Rasika, the houskeeper. She will come in every morning to clean the house. We also ordered breakfast with her every day, so she'd prepare us so much food in the morning, oh my god, hahaha. She doesn't speak English very well but is super friendly and helpful and communication always worked out just fine. Akila, the watchman and allrounder. Akila is a young local, a very kind and helpful person. He'll sleep in the employees room in the back of the house to ensure security. His English is pretty good and we asked him tons of questions about his country, politics, people so we had an interesting insight into his life and Sri Lanka in general. He also translates when we need to communicate with Rasika or Daya and helped with anything we needed help with. Daya, the gardener. Daya is an older Sri Lankan and will work in the garden every second day. You won't see much of him and he doesn't speak any English. But we always waved and smiled at each other and because I was interested in the garden, he showed me all the plants and animals, brought us fresh coconut, or a fruit, or a beautiful flower. So lovely! Janaka, the Tuk Tuk driver: He's such a nice person with the brightest smile I've seen on the island. Very polite also. He lives in Ahangama about a 5-minute drive from the house and I used him as my personal driver for the whole two months. I just called him whenever I needed him and he'd show up 5- 15 minutes later. Or I told him the day before and he came on time to pick me up. He'll give you a price somewhere between local and tourist price. He charges per distance, not per time. Means if I went surfing he'd wait for me 2 hours and not charge anything for it. The location is a bit inland in the village, I'd say a 20-minute walk from the beach. Very local. It's quiet enough although in Asia it's never quiet anyway. There's always something going on during the day. And of course in the night the barking of the dogs. But it's not loud as the garden is very large and the dogs are outside. Also, I felt very safe during the whole time. I didn't talk much to the neigbours (my boyfriend a bit more), but again I waved and smiled and they waved and smiled back. Ahangama is a 5-minute drive from the house where you'll find some restaurants, a small supermarket, local fruit and veggie shops, a pharmacy, etc. I can recommend the restaurant "the white rabbit" and "Maria Bonita". Another nice place to chill out just next to Maria Bonita is Manana. After Ahangama comes Kabbalana, another 5 minutes from Ahangama, there you'll find a few nice places such as Café Ceylon with it's large garden (and good Gelato) and Restaurant Citra (Citra is a bit pricey, but the best food I had on the island). Midigama is a 5 minute drive the other way, also with a few local restaurants. And Weligama is a 20 minute drive. Just note: If you're there during off-season, most places are closed and it can rain a lot. Most restaurants and other tourist places start opening from November. I can fully a 100% recommend this place. I felt very happy there and enjoyed my stay tremendously.

    Kim2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ciara was outstanding to communicate with. All queries were answered quickly and a huge amount of information is provided before you arrive. The staff at the villa are also amazing and absolutely make the experience. The villa is beautifully presented and has a really lovely feel. For us personally travelling with very young children not having aircon in any room wasn’t great but other than that the villa is wonderful. Thanks again.

    Heidi2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a villa with a very Ceylon character, the decoration is very simple but stylish. First of all, the communication with the host is very smooth, Ciara will clear the check-in information with you, and even send you an email to inform you about the precautions before you travel. On the way to the villa, we called the owner to ask how to arrive. He promptly dispatched the tuk-tuk driver Janaka to take us there, only let us wait a few minutes. Secondly, this villa has a very competent butler Rasika, the room is very clean, the kitchen is the best sanitary condition in my trip to Sri Lanka in the past ten days, just like my own home. The local food made by Rasika is not only very delicious, but also very cheap. We booked dinner and personally felt that it was more than a lot of star hotels. You only need to spend about 1 to 2 dollars to get a good and delicious breakfast. We 8 people, 5 breakfasts were not finished, and the hospitable Ciara also saved our first day of breakfast. The butler will also organize the room when you are out, even the items in your room, including clothing, etc., is simply the service process of a five-star hotel. Carel Akila is a very competent and polite person who always smiles at you. He will not enter the villa when necessary, and will be responsible for closing the doors and windows every night. In short, this homestay is hospitable, clean, delicious and affordable, with high standard of service. The only regret is that there is no air conditioning. We stayed in August. The open area was very comfortable, but the room was a little hot in the middle of the night and it was a bit cold in the middle of the night. I highly recommend this homestay. Highly recommended!

    Kristina2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nicely designed property overlooking a beautiful cove. Waking up with the stunning views of the ocean every morning was a great way to start the day. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and overall a great place to stay. They also do events and get guest chefs to come and do some great food at their cafe driftwood. A very nice chilled out vibe. Would highly recommend this property

    Navin2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and facilities with beach access (literally on the beach!), in front of tranquil cove water, but also within swimming distance of surfing points. Thoughtful breakfast and facilities to enjoy a memorable sunset.

    Laura2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most stylish places you will find in Sri Lanka. Interieur design of the rooms and inner garden with pool was amazing. Looked even better than on the pictures. Also very friendly host and nice place/restaurant to hang out, which is from the same owner.

    Maarten2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a newly built villa & is very clean. Great space if your travelling with a small group. 3 villas sharing a common space & pool. Avi was very good with communication & the place was as we expected. The restaurant at Nuga House (2 min walk) offers excellent food & great for breakfast. A 5 min walk to the beautiful beach & only a short tuk tuk ride to some great restaurants & convenience store. Overall great value & well located. Lots of surfing, yoga & healthy living. Thanks for a pleasant stay. Would definitely stay again.

  • Wow wow wow. One of the best stays I have had - ever. We got there and the next day we extended our stay as we loved this place so much. It’s tasteful simple design really makes the place a relaxing and dream like stay. The views are amazing in all areas of the hotel - including your bedroom. I feel they have thought about the key features: - room with a view - Cold - aircon - Clean, simple but stylish. The staff are super friendly and attentive and really helpful - suggesting surfing lessons and lovely places to eat. The bar upstairs was so lovely and again the staff always went above and beyond - it was open late so was not loud when sleeping just a superb spot for the sunset. I really hope I’m lucky enough to return one day.

    Ruth2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely stunning! The rooms are immaculate and I love the simple yet comfortable design. The atmosphere is something out of this world, leaving your room and looking into the ocean past the garden was special everyday. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff and hosts. Must-go (especially for couples) for as long as you can ;)

    Constantin2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the lighthouse. Nawell and Tarik are very welcoming and helpfull, location is great, rooms very comfortable. Go there is you have the chance!

    Jan2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Lighthouse is one of the best places to stay in the Southern Province- you are ON the beach- there is a surf break right out front, the best bar for sunset drinks in the whole area is on the rooftop, you fall asleep to the sound of waves, the rooms smell like rose oil, and they make french press coffee in the mornings which you can sip while on a transat facing the water. Tarek + Nawel sooooo helpful. Will be back for sure!

    Julia2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The hotel is incredible, and Tarek and Nawel were incredibly helpful and hospitable with local tips and suggestions. We could not recommend the hotel more.

    Chris2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • As the name suggests - a true beacon along the south coast! What an absolute slice of magical paradise. The location is simply superb, beachfront perfection in what is my opinion the best area to be based in between Galle to Matara. Very well executed rooms, extremely comfy beds with great linen (something which is hard to come by in Sri Lanka), huge bathrooms with great showers. The staff - you couldn’t ask for nicer and more genuine people to interact with. Thanks for everything! From local tips on where to eat to just making life easy. The food that they serve on site is extremely tasty and good value, the rooftop bar is THE place to be for an evening sundowner and the staff there are also just the loveliest most genuine people. I have stayed in over 45 Airbnb’s all across the world and this is easily in my top 2! I will be back!

    Ben2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The lighthouse stands out as one the best places we’ve stayed, not just in Sri Lanka, but anywhere. It’s a sanctuary from the business of Weligama. And as soon as you walk through the house you’re greeted by the ocean right in front of you. We stayed for 4 nights and it was a great base to explore the local area. The rooms were very clean (cleaned everyday), cool and looked great. The roof bar has the best sunset views in the area and is a great place to just sit and enjoy the ocean views. Most of all though was the quality from Tarek and his team. Tarek was an exceptional host - he gave us tips, made sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive. The staff were also great- super polite and friendly and again very attentive. We couldn’t recommend lighthouse enough!

    Paul2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • No doubt that Lighthouse is Ahangama’s hidden gem! Beautiful boutique hotel sitting right at the edge of the beach. The team at lighthouse is a delight and we felt at home before we even arrived (through our conversations). The rooms are very spacious, overlooking the sea and nicely designed, and everything is shining clean. The food is a nice fusion of cuisines, the rooftop bar is the area’s IT place, with great cocktail, bites and music. Looking forward to visiting again

  • Its a perfect place to stay . I had everything i need for an accommodation in the middle of Jungle. The best part is to be in the middle of nature with amazing bird sounds and not get disturbed by someone else .Its a perfect place if you need to be away from anything and focus to yourself and being creative.

    Yagmur2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were lucky enough to stay here for nearly a week and it was the perfect oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the beach road. Lots of outside space to relax, do yoga, walk. It is a very stylish and well designed little pad with super lovely staff. We were sad to leave.

    River2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super vibe at the place and team, nice location, and very uncommon place for this region. Very nice!

    George2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Simply outstanding location. The garden makes you feel like you are in the middle of a tranquil and friendly forest. You will enjoy the serenity and quietness. The design that has gone into this property is outstanding, you wont find places like this often. Breakfast is yummy too

    Juan2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Unique airbnb spot !! Highly recommended, probably the best stay I can remember !! I actually could not expect that this place would be that great... The room you are renting is an old container turned into a beautiful modern loft including beautiful design furnitures. It is located in Gabriel jungle garden, which is one of the most peaceful place on earth ! I loved to wake up in such beautiful nature. The container is very spaceful and you'll feel so good there. Working AC, perfect Wifi, delicious breakfast, beautiful outside shower. Gabriel is a lovely host, he's been living there for years now and have very good recommendations in town and around (especially two restaurants I tried). The villa is located few hundred meters away from a direct access to the ocean, from Ahangama main road.

    Arthur2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in the stylish bungalow blew my mind. I didn’t expect it to be so spacious and luxurious but also quite and relaxed at the same time. Waking up to all kinds of birds, turtles and monkeys made me feel so energized. At night just seeing fireflies out of my room was just amazing. The super attentive staff lit the fire pit and Kerosin lamps in the evening around the property to create a magical wonderland. Breakfast was healthy with different choices which changed every day on request. The owners Gabriel and Martin went the extra mile on all our requests, would highly recommend this jungle jewel. I will definitely be back. Great job and good luck for the rest of the season.

    Kristina2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a little Paradis at only 5 min walk from the beach, then it’s the perfect place to stay. The place is so stylish and the staff was amazingly kind. Gabriel is great host really helpful and can arrange many thinks you make your stay great. We definitely recommend this place

    Aïda2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We only spent one night at Gabriel’s place. We enjoyed to stay in this container flooded with light through the big window front... to wake up in the morning with a feeling like be in a jungle garden and enjoyed to take an open air shower... if you like to stay at a comfortable quit place close to the beach you will love to stay there.

    A newly built villa with 9 bedrooms suites in the beach. The villa located in Ahangama very closer to the beach. Just 10 meters to the Ahangama surfing beach. Guests can experience the surfing at one of the best surfing beach at southern coast.
    Great staff and delicious food, can organize surfing lessons, organizing beach parties.. We do also Airport pick ups, Airport drops, Round tours
  • Tharanga villa was beyond our expectations! Super clean rooms, great AC, WiFi and breakfast every morning in the lovely garden. The location was perfect, basically had the beach in our back yard,great for surfing. Which we also did thanks to the host Kasun who booked us with a great instructor. Our plan was to stay here for 5 nights only but we ended up coming back for our last few days in Sri Lanka since we enjoyed it so much! Kasun also helped us A LOT with great recommendations on what to do and also booked us a car to go to Ella, to and from the airport, to our next hotel, basically everywhere for a really good price. All the employees at tharanga vila are so friendly and helpful, would recommend everyone to stay here!

    Diana2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was in a perfect location, right on the beach. A perfect spot for learning to surf with lessons going of everyday and plenty of boards to rent.The hosts were incredibly helpful and kind. Breakfast was delicious: coffee,fruit, eggs and bread. One night we had dinner there and the food was absolutely delicious!!

    Cortni2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very big and very clean room. Walking distance to multiple food choices (along very busy main road). A couple surf spots out front. Nice private garden to enjoy breakfast or soak in some sun while watching the waves. A bit outside the center of town. Tuk Tuks available at all hours right outside your door.

    Rita2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kasun is a lovely and friendly host and hotel owner. We got unexpectedly upgraded to a bigger room with on the sea side of the building. When we spontaneously decided to extend our stay we could even keep our room. the hotel is located location right in front of the beach (good beach for surf beginners btw.). The price is more than fair (breakfast included), especially if you compare it to the other beachside hotels nearby.

  • Gabriel's place provided the perfect stay for my family. It's such a peaceful place, yet only minutes away from cafes and amazing swimming spots. We loved the monkeys that came by to see us each day and appreciated all the thoughtful touches. The staff were very discreet and were there whenever we needed anything. It's such a stylish and unique concept and we will definitely be back.

    Stella2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • An extraordinary space. Thoughtful, stylish, secluded, spacious. Monkeys playing on the roof (and trying to steal breakfast!), a stunning outdoor bathroom, and an eclectic art deco interior. Just beautiful. Gabriel went out of his way to make sure we were well looked after, and was so accommodating. Also...food delivered from the awesome restaurants by the same owner! Can't go wrong with this place, just a few short minutes from the gorgeous kabalana beach too. Stay here!

    Jonathan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely outstanding place. Designed to perfection with a breathtaking garden and luxury outdoor bathroom, Balinese-style. The hosts were welcoming and helpful, and their breakfast was delicious. Recommended for anyone looking for a break from the hecticness of the main road - you will not want to leave! Thank you for a great stay

    Juan2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was our very first time in Sri Lanka. And actually I cannot imagine how it could be better. We had the greatest experience! Staying at this adorable villa was such a big pleasure for me and my friends. We are thankful to Gabriel and his family for the best hospitality ever! I consider this villa as a masterpiece. It was designed by Gabriel himself with attention and love to every detail. The piano in villa became a wonderful surprise for us, as one of us is a professional piano player and he received a possibility to share his music with us every day. Advantages of this villa: - Brand new villa - Perfect design - Best host ever - 5 mins by bike to the ocean - 2 Restaurants nearby with 10% discount for Villa Illusion guests - Monkey’s alarm-clock every morning:) - Small swimming pool on the territory - Nice atmosphere around - Nice stuff - Breakfast included - Cleaning everyday - A/C - Everything is working perfectly As people who work in art and with art we recommend this place for everyone who has a taste and who wants to spend amazing time in Sri Lanka.

    Natalia2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was amazing place for living. You are in fully privat zone, on this land there are just two houses: small one and big one. It's unusual houses - eco. Every day we met with monkeys(they are not so friendly, but it’s totally safety). Silence and peace. Very friendly owners, are ready to help in all directions. And of course - very comfortable and beautiful furniture and paintings. Large and interesting library.

    Ahangama, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

    4 bedroom villa, sleeps 8. Set in 1.5 acre tropical garden with spectacular views across Koggala Lake, near Galle. Peaceful and secluded setting, but only 10 minutes from the beach by tuktuk. Great wildlife viewing. 50ft infinity swimming pool. Exceptional cook. All meals at cost. All bedrooms have lake views, aircon, fans, mosquito net & ensuite. 4G wifi. Cinema /games room and library. Please see new video of Lakeview Villa Ahangama at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7SwRUDQjbY
    Ideal for those wanting a relaxing getaway, the villa is situated in a stunningly beautiful location on a hillside overlooking Koggala lake, just over a mile from the beach and 30 minutes from Galle, but in total tranquillity, far away from the noise and crowds. It is accessed via a 200m track through the cinnamon plantations which are the only neighbours. There are 4 staff: Sonali (Cook/ housekeeper) and her husband, Lasantha, who looks after the house and swimming pool, Raja the gardener and Saman, the nightwatchman. Sonali speaks excellent English and will ensure you have a wonderful time. She is an exceptional cook, who has published her own cookbook and will prepare all your meals and shop for you, if you wish. All dietary requirements and preferences can be catered for. Meals are not included in the rental price, but the only additional cost is for the ingredients and transport. Try a seafood BBQ on the sun terrace, fuelled by coconut shells. Sonali and Lasantha will also be happy to offer the following services at additional cost: Cookery lessons Birthday and other bespoke celebration cakes Fireworks Babysitting
    We have no immediate neighbours other than cinnamon plantations. There is a small village at the back of the inlet to the side of the villa, but the prevailing sounds come from the peacocks, families of monkeys and the gentle chanting from the nearest temple, drifting across the lake. The garden is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers. Monkeys, mongooses and monitor lizards are regular visitors and a special attraction is the evening fly-past of hundreds of fruit bats. On a clear night the lack of light pollution makes stargazing a must. If you can tear yourself away from the villa, the area provides plenty to do, whatever the length of your stay. Take a boat trip (either local style or motorised) on the lake. Walk (30 minutes) or tuktuk (under 10 minutes) to the nearest beach. Within a maximum of 30 minutes or so from the villa you can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, watersports, go whalewatching, go shopping, do yoga, a canoe or cycling tour, visit restaurants, Galle Fort, spice gardens, temples, museums, a tea plantation or a turtle hatchery. Further afield are the national parks at Yala, Udawalawe, Sinharaja, Bundala and many more, but if all that sounds too strenuous, just curl up in a hammock with a book, or have a massage.
  • A group of us (family and friends) planned a trip to Thailand and we wanted to go to one other country. Originally we had planned to go to Bali but realized it was their rainy season so we decided to go to Sri Lanka on a whim after finding this awesome Airbnb. After reading the reviews, it seemed like most people opted to stay at the Airbnb for most of the time because of the amazing pool and the hospitality from Sonali and her family who lives close to the property. I knew for sure my group would want to go out and explore most of the time - but I was wrong! This place has everything you need and Sonali and Lasantha are truly wonderful people that made sure we had everything we needed. They cooked all of our meals for us, organized a masseuse, a boat ride on the lake and all our tuk-tuk's. We did go to Unawatuna Beach for a day which was fun - beautiful beach with lots of beach bars. This Airbnb ended up being the most relaxing part of our trip. I would not recommend if you are trying to party and go out, but we had a blast eating great food and drinking wine with an amazing view! Also, I feel like this is understated in the other reviews... there are literally monkeys hanging out jumping about trees right next to you!! It is SO cool! My only qualm was there were a lot of bugs and the whole place is essentially open air so I had to get over my fear of bugs very quickly. Thank you to Ken, Lesley, Sonali and Lasantha for their amazing hospitality!

    Shannon2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • My big family (6 adults 2 kids) stayed at the Lake View Villa for 6 nights after a 10 day tour in the mid& southern part of Sri Lanka. This is really a nice place that you can totally relax and regain your energy. Lake view from the villa is really gorgeous, especially in the early morning and dusk. If no other guests would check in, we'd like to extend our stay even after 6 days! Nice owner Lesley and Kent, nice staff at the villa who take care everything you need. Highly recommend!

    Alex2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible home Lesley and Ken have built here, our family of 8 enjoyed welcoming the new year here and were blown away by just how beautiful this place was. The peace and tranquility being located with no neighbours was unbelievable. The view across the lake is second to none and the colours of the sunrise or sunset here were breathtaking. The house itself is new, just 7 years old however the style uses traditional wood carving and the two work perfectly together. The beds were all super comfy and clean. Sonali and her husband Lasanta (who live in a separate property by the entrance to the villa, took great care of us and the food prepared here was just superb. Sonali was fantastic, super friendly and accommodating. Having additional space (cinema room and study) were a bonus as some of our group needed to work during the stay and the we enjoyed a few family films here too. The images really don't show how great this property is, if you're thinking about coming to the area this is the place to stay without doubt.

    Clive2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • A slice of paradise. The house and views are stunning. We stayed at Lake View over Christmas and had the most wonderful family time. Sonnali the house manager and her team looked after us so well. The most delicious meals, snacks and cakes. Her help with absolutely everything we needed from Drs! to tuk tuks to lake tours to beach recommendations. We cannot thank her enough for giving us a five star holiday. Thank you from all of us and our best wishes for 2020.

    Melina2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous and extremely spacious place to stay. The food prepared by the staff was most delicious. The pool is delightful and the boat tour of the lake is highly recommended. An architect's delight!!

    Neal2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible place! Right in the middle of the jungle with monkeys being your only close neighbors. Sonali is a fantastic cook and she and her husband Lasantha took very good care of us! It’s not far to the beach to go surfing or to the city to buy whatever you need. Everything was clean and beautiful, would definitely recommend!

    Matthias2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is as described in the listing. Beautiful grounds, lovely views of the lake and wildlife, very good pool, outstanding food by the Chef Sonali. Very attentive yet unobtrusive service by the couple. Overall very well recommended for a family or two (as was our travel party)

Closest bigger town is Galle at 17 km distance. From Colombo there is 140 km to Villa Perit and from the airport 170 km.
  • Nilu and her team made my stay wonderful in every regard! Checking into her house in the middle of the night was no problem and i was welcomed with driving instructions. When ever i had questions or needed anything I was heard and helped within an instant. The house itself is located very close to the beautiful beaches but away from the main road and surrounded by a beautiful garden with all its amazing animals such as peacocks, monkeys, chameleons. Thanks so very much for making my time in Sri Lanka so amazing.

    Simone2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely villa, with a beautiful garden, near very beautiful beach with good surfing and closely locating to some good restaurant. The hosts were very helpful, nice and made very delicious food! We were very happy with our stay and would highly recommend to stay in Villa Perit.

    Cecilia2019-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The main advantage of this place is an excellent surrounding area - beautiful & cozy jungle garden. The perfect evening is to lie in a hammock on the upper terrace and look at the garden! Colonial styled house is not so big but comfortable for 4 adults with a baby. There was an issue with a water pressure once (whole village issue) but it was resolved next day. Wi-fi wasn’t very fast for work here that’s why we bought local SIM card. I guess it’s enough if you’re only phone users. The nearest Kabalana beach (5-7 min walk) is good for beginner’s surfing. There are lot of schools and freelance instructors. It’s my second time in Sri-Lanka and I’d love to come back to this place and the beach.

    Alina2019-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Magnificent stay. Spacious, spotless and has all you need for a traveling family. We loved our stay so much the first two weeks that we returned the following month for an additional two weeks. Yes, that good! We were put in touch with Loku through Taija. A very respectable local driver and tour guide, highly recommend his services. Very professional and excellent English too. Nishantha and Sudharma, the caretaker at Villa Perit and his wife, made our stay. The most caring and loving family always going the extra mile to accommodate our needs. Bella the sweet dog is a adorable and super friendly too.

    Geraldine2018-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Perrit is real a gem. It's tucked away up a quiet lane just a few minutes from the beach. You have the best of both worlds - seclusion, proper jungle vibe complete with monkeys, beautiful plants (the garden is stunning), and the privacy and convenience of a villa to yourself. The dog Bella is sweet and friendly. The kids loved her. Nisha and Loku greeted us with lovely juice and refreshing towels, and had even filled a paddling pool for the kids. Very thoughtful. The house is comfy, and has everything you need. Nisha and his lovely wife made us some delicious breakfasts and dinners while we were there. We were sad to leave and would definitely recommend this place for small families/ couples who like a bit of tranquility and independence, away from the beach and busy road.

    Anna2018-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is lovely with a beautiful garden and a nice balkony. The area is quiet, but still very closed to everything you need. Nishanta is taking care of the house, the garden and the guests and also a careful tuk tuk driver! Loku was very helpful with recommendations and communication. Thank you for this beautiful time!

  • We had a great stay at Villa Perit! The house is located in a nice area amongst the locals, with a lovely garden. The house is very spacious and nice. Extra plus for the gardener/ houseguard Nishanta who is now our new friend. Nishanta was very accommodating and nice, he introduced us to the Sri Lankan cuisine and helped us in many ways. It was a short walk from Villa Perit to the beach (the beach was very nice, great surfing, and nice people), and easy to take a Tuk tuk if you wanted to go elsewhere. So thank you Taija, Villa Perit was a great start on our Sri Lanka journey! Best wishes from Sweden / Karolina & Mattias with kids.

  • We had a lovely stay at Taijas place! The garden was beautiful, the house was well equipped and the dog Bella was adorable. The near beach was perfect for surfing and sunbathing. We can highly recommend everyone staying here to accept the opportunity to try the Sri Lankan food prepared by the guard’s wife- it was delicious. Communication with Taija before and under our stay was impeccable. Kind regards Agnes

    Kabalana is a small and quiet village located next to some of the finest golden beaches in Southern Sri Lanka. It retains a sleepy village vibe with fishing hamlets all around and is very green, tropical and wild with an abundance of trees and bird life. Venus Villa is well positioned between Koggala Lake and just 100m (2 min) walk away from Kabalana Beach which is home to some of Sri Lanka’s finest surf breaks. Within 2 minutes you can also access a world class yoga studio at Nuga House offering 3 daily classes of different styles of yoga, with well known teachers, as well as workshops and retreats. You can also access a restaurant/cafe there that sells delicious breakfast for $9, high quality coffee and delicious Mediterranean dishes. Kabalana is our favorite beach in Sri Lanka. It is perfect for beginner, intermediate and advanced surfers as well as those who just prefer swimming, sun baking or reading a good book. For beginner surfers, Kabalana beach break is fantastic with small frothy waves near the shore. More experienced surfers will be happy to note that Kabalana Main Point (also known as The Rock), has one of the island’s most famed A Frames offering long barrels on either side. Kabalana beach is off the beaten track-uncrowded and pristine and a very special part of Sri Lanka. Check out our spectacular sunsets and you will be returning over and over again. For those of you who like to explore beyond the beach, there are varied options to enjoy. Koggala Lake offers an unhurried slice of Sri Lanka, where you can jump on a small boat and explore the green backwaters, quaint villages and small islands. The closest town to Kabalana is Ahangama which is around a km away. Ahangama is fast growing as a melting pot for creatives, foodies, bohemians and surfies. Here you can enjoy a plethora of services such as Ayurveda and wellness treatments, funky resteraunts, bars and cafes as well as easy access to convenience retail such as supermarket, ATMs and pharmacy. If you wish to explore further afield, within a 10-15 mins drive, you can access several famous beaches along Sri Lanka’s southern coast, from Hikkaduwa, to Mirissa and Weligama. If culture is your thing, you may wish to visit the historic World Heritage Galle Fort full of Dutch and British period buildings, restaurants and museums.
  • Amazing and peaceful place! This accommodation provides everything you need for a relaxed holiday... Lots of privacy and a really well-equipped outdoor kitchen. Just two minutes walk to the next surfspot (the Rock, Kabalana) and a couple of nice restaurants. Highly recommended.

  • The place was amazing and offered a lot of intimacy. Aviad was a great host and helped us with everything. We really enjoyed our stay there!

  • Aviad has both a hotel and villas. That being said, we stayed at a brand new villa, we were a little confused at first as the listing said shared bathrooms, but we ended up with a private bathroom and a private outdoor shower which was amazing. We had a wonderful time, it was super clean, quiet, beautiful and couldn't have ended our trip better, we honestly wish we stayed here longer.

    Our quirky little piece of paradise is situated right opposite Kabalana beach with two surf breaks, an endless stretch of beautiful sand and lots of Lankan vibes. There are also three other surf breaks within walking distance, as well as bars, restaurants and yoga facilities.
    We renovated Ark ourselves and are pretty pleased with the outcome of the long hours spent crafting and building- we hope you enjoy the space and vibe as much as we do. It is a house where you can just 'be'- it is basic but has all you need. The house is full of character and we can help with any tiny detail to make your stay as perfect and memorable as possible. Our spot is a little quirky and different- three of our rooms have mezzanine levels and so stairs/ladders are involved in the Ark adventure. There is nothing better than climbing up to your super comfy sleep cabin and dreaming of the pumping waves and perfect rays that you are going to catch the next day! When you wake up, you can head down to the kitchen, grab yourself a smoothie or a big mug of Ceylon tea and head out to the veranda to take in the first rays of the day. You will have full use of the kitchen (fridge, hob, kettle, toaster, toastie maker, blender) but, if you don't fancy cooking, you can always pop over the road to grab a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast or, if you are missing home, there are a range of Western options to keep you happy. Then head out for a surf, bake in the Sri Lankan sunshine or go and find your inner yogi at a close-by jungle yoga shala. Go adventuring on your scooter, book onto one of our National Park Safaris or challenge yourself to stand up paddle boarding in the backrivers and coastal regions of our perfect spot on the coast. There are lots of options and we can help you with the plotting to make sure you fill your days with fun! When you come home, jump in our outdoor shower or head up to your private bathroom to have a nice, powerful hot water shower before heading downstairs to cook up a feast and chill in the living room with a movie or head out to explore all that Ahangama has to offer!
    Our neighbourhood is aaalllllll about the beaches, surf and yoga, as well as local Sri Lankan culture! We are located just outside a traditional fishing village so you can experience 'real' Sri Lanka as well as the tropical beachy playground that we call home. There are some great bars and restaurants very close by, serving up both local and Western goodies! Fresh fruit juices and Thambili (king coconuts) are available everrrywhere and remind you daily that you are in paradise!
  • Briefly, book this place!. It's the best Airbnb you can get in Ahangama. This place is walking distance to the centre of Ahangama, even shorter distance to Kabalana Beach and Sticks. You basically don't need a TukTuk to go to the beach, do your shopping, withdraw money from the ATM, have lunch/dinner (you must have bowl at Sticks Cafe!) We stayed for 10 days with a group of 6 and the cleaning lady came and cleaned the place 3-4 times while we were there, helped with our laundry (125lkr a piece), changed our sheets and kept it sparkling clean! Till is a great host! He checked-in with us every couple of days, let us know about events close by and arranged Chris (a physio) for a massage (definitely recommend him if you're surfing). Recap: book this place.

  • The villa looks just like in the pictures. The renovation has been done nicely, it’s very clean, the location is good. The heavy traffic in front of the villa is horrible as it is anywhere in the coast. Kabalana beach is very close, there are a lot of restaurants close by and if you cross the railway, you end up in the local area full of life. Only minus is that the upstairs room are very warm and the fan didn’t help in the first hours of the night. Downstairs bedrooms were a lot cooler. Other than that, there was nothing to be complained.

    Anna2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Neat and artistic! Till's place had everything you need and it felt like home! He's a great host too! I'll definitely recommend it!

    Ava2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • A home away from home, that's what I felt when arriving at ARK. The place is spacious, clean, cosy and fine designed. As the house is directly located on the main road, it's easy to walk to Ahangama - restaurants - my favourite surf spot 'Marshmallow' - or Sticks for a good cappucino or breakfast + it's quite inside the house. The beds are really good as well, slept like a rose. This time I was by myself but I would love to come back with a group of friends or family, the house is very inviting with it's kitchen and cosy backyard. And as Till had plannend on doing some maintenance during my stay, I could tell he puts a lot of energy and attention in making sure the house is perfectly fine. He was also nice on giving me some surf tips and recommendations about Sri Lanka! The perfect surf&stay spot if you ask me :)

    Enya2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, helpful and welcoming. He told about all the places around, suggested where to surf, it was always kind for 2 weeks of rest. In a word, everything is fine.

    Михаил2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Good house with good location. Till is very kind and good host! Ask him about everything you want/need and he will give you fool information about it!

    Alexander2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Till was an awesome host! Very responsive and had a lot of local knowledge. Also I have to say the property is located near one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The house was fully equipped and we had a fantastic week there. Highly recommend this place!

    Debbie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Ark Lanka is the perfect place if you want a beautiful villa close to good surf, nice beaches, good restaurants within walking distance and a quick tuk tuk or motorbike ride to the other villages on the coast.

The villa offered everything we needed from filtered water,mixer,backyard,great sofa(best space in the villa) to laundry service. Would recommend everyone to stay here. Thank you Till for all your help.
