눇The woman who owns the house was lovely and polite and very helpful in helping us decide where we can get food, where the beach is the best, and telling us about the safety of the area. We stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment which has it's own bathroom and kitchen (with stove and fridge). So it was an entire little home! It was great and so clean, esp the bathroom. The beds were comfortable. Clean towels and bedding were provided. Also, it's about a 20 min walk away from the really touristy part of town. This may be a good or bad thing, depending on what you're looking for. For us, it was perfect. We walked along the beach down to the more touristy area to swim b/c the water was too rough where we were. It's very convenient to get to--a Rs. 150 3-wheel ride from the Hikkaduwa train station. And the price was amazing for all this! I would definitely recommend staying here!!

눉The owners were very unfriendly. They made us feel very unwelcome, telling us booking.com had made a mistake with the price and then proceeding to have a telephone row with them in front of us. They then agreed to honour the price, but regularly switched off the WiFi & the morning we were due to leave they switched off the electricity before asking us to leave hours early. As the only guests, we were told breakfast would be 700rp pp, before then being told it wouldn't be available at all. There is mould around the sink, the bathroom was like a stinky sauna & the mosquito mesh at the window had been poorly repaired with plasters. Not offering any food made life very difficult as, in low season, most restaurants in the area are closed, forcing us to walk quite a distance for sustenance. The woman owner gave us dirty looks at every opportunity and was generally unpleasant. She turned off the WiFi, claiming a power cut, while the lights and air con were still on! We had to request toilet paper & upon arrival weren't offered so much as a drink of water after our long journey.
눇After reading the reviews we had high expectations, but were very disappointed.

눉nothing really, just the internet is not very stronger and there was a couple of power cuts but that is normal in Sri Lanka.
눇Loved the couple - owners. They were super. Always very friendly and made me feel at home at all times. They even drove me to the local supermarket for free. Location is great if you are looking for a relaxing place. End up staying 4 nights =)
