Had an extremely bad experience at this place. We had made a reservation over one week before we arrived but yet they didn't expect us when we came. They said it was not possible to open our booking made at booking. com The rooms and bathrooms were very dirty. Everything in the kitchen was so dirty that we couldn't use...

Management response:

We have send these guests away! They were extremely agressive towards our great, wonderful, extremely skilled staff, who have never been treated this way by any of our guests.

Set back from the beach and in it's own garden it feels as if you are in the jungle because there are lots of lovely bird noises to wake you in the morning. Very nice to have a whole house to ourselves. Traditionally decorated with red stone floors, antique furniture and fans. Was quite cool as most of the time...

Thank you so much

7 of us stayed in this beautiful villa. We had so much space and the service was fantastic. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome if we had tried. Gayathri and Priyantha were so helpful and Priyantha made delicious food. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a beautiful spot just outside of Mirissa.

Management response:

Thank you so much we are very happy you enjoyed your stay

Next door is the small village temple, and you walk to the main road to get to busier Mirissa alongside the big temple
