Avakasha hotel consists of 7 or 8 bungalows, simply furnished, but clean. There is a small swimming pool in the middle (also very clean).
The hotel is owned by a local gentleman, who is a very nice man, though he isn't there very often. There are 2 older Sri Lankan gentlemen, and one younger who take a wonderful care of you! Cook, clean and look after you:-) All of them are just incredible.
There is a railway between the hotel and the beach - but it never really bothered us. Might be a downside for someone, but from other hand it's quite handy if you want to travel (e.g. to Kalutara see the Temple, Panadura for shopping in Odel, etc...) or many other places. Direct train goes from the station to Colombo/Mount Lavinia.
There's nowhere really to walk to as it is in quite a secluded place. The beach is good, not many people at all. Yes, you'll have to walk across the railway line which isn't a problem. When we were there the beach was quite clean.
I do hope to come visit guys/ stay at Avakasha again:-)More
