눉Oh dear, what a disappointment. From the Booking.com website the place looks OK with a palm-fringed, lovely beach. Nothing could be further removed from this. The villa is dingy, dirty and ill lit and could do with a serious upgrade to make it acceptable. Painting all white inside to brighten it up a bit, much better lighting and furniture would be appropriate. The A/C is only in the upstairs bedroom, which we did not use. The bed in the downstairs room was uncomfortable and the bedding well worn. The kitchen? Well, a complete rip out job and modernisation would be the only solution here. Washing machine is a joke. The bathroom is dirty and the electric shower pathetic. The mosquito net was dirty and full of dust. We took it down as it represented a real health hazard. The villa is very remote from Batticoloa and requires a tuk-tuk journey to get there. Fortunately, a tuk-tuk was always readily available. The beach was something else; though obviously not the owner's fault. Never have I see such a sea of plastic bottles, detritus and flotsam that the eastern Indian Ocean throws up. Definitely not a place of enjoyment. I would not advise sea bathing here either. The wave motion is quite strong and I suspect some powerful undertows may be present at all states of the tide. A sign a bit further down the peninsular strongly states that sea bathing is dangerous. Sorry, but this place could be nice but many, many faults let it down.
눇Not a lot! The lady owner was charming and very helpful but ........

눉It's kinda far from the centre and around is literally nothing! It's a bit creepy especially cause we stayed alone but they have a security guy coming during the night and the plane is locked. It's a shame that they don't offer breakfast cause that would make it much nicer in the morning as you can't get anything to eat around!! The beach is super dirty but you're all alone if you go! It was okay and the water is still nice.
눇The owner were really nice and helpful! We also got to use their washing machine which was perfect! Also the bikes were really helpful and the place itself was clean and lovely!
