good house for he price.
We stayed 1 month with 2 small kids. ac working, kitchen well stocked with stuff. nice gardens with peacocks and monkeys. A short and nice walk to the beach. The caretaker is very nice although speaks little english. pool is small but deep! if you have kids. Ask the caretaker to clean it when is needs and he will.
On the beach is a small restaurant we ate a lot, you need to put your order in erly! there is also a shop on the main road almost opposite the house, that sells veg and some fruit, they will buy for you if you need that can save you trip.
For the price this house is absolutely fine and I and will use again.
Thank you very much for your comments,
Merveilleux moments à Mawella Beach
La maison est agréablement old fashion, immense et très bien équipée. Le jardin est paradisiaque avec la roue des paons tous les matins, les varans, les écureuils et autres animaux et oiseaux. Le house keaper est également parfait, pour les animaux et pour les conseils. La plage déserte au bout du chemin, à 100m est enfin parfaite.
Les bémols (il en faut) : attention aux fourmis, le Wifi est concentré autour d'une unique table, un léger manque d'intimité car la maison du gardien donne sur la terrasse extérieure.
Néanmoins, nous recommandons largement cette maison, havre de paix.
Very nice house
We stayed about 10 days there for Christmas week. The old classic house is located very close to a very nice quiet beach. You have one or two "beach" restaurant there and also fishermen from which you can purchase delicious fresh fish. The caretaker is really helping and nice guy. 10 minutes away is the town. The garden is superb also. We spent a wonderful week there. Pool is really small but we spent all the time to the beach. Only wifi was working more or less. Recommended.
Dear Pierre Marcellier ,
Thank you very much for your comments, hope to see you once again some day!
Lovely all the way around
The property was very nice. I loved the traditional Sri Lankan feel of the home. There was large and beautiful garden filled with wildlife. We saw and heard peacocks daily. Each bedroom was air conditioned and had its own bathroom. The walk to the beach was about 200 yards away down a private path . There was a little "restaurant" at the beach, (really just a shack and a few tables with umbrellas) that served excellent Sri Lankan food. The beach was stunning and we had the oppurtunity to watch local fisherman haul in their catch. In the evening a local fisherman brought his catch to the house and we purchased a very large Searfish witch we bar-b-qued and it was delicious. The house help was very accommodating and gracious. I did have an unexpected and a bit scary surprise when a scorpian was found in my room. Especially since my twin 3 year boys were in there with me. I screamed and my husband and the caretaker arrived and rescued us by sweeping up the critter in a dustpan and putting him outside. Since then I've learned that wildlife is just part of Sri Lanka and it is everywhere. We really enjoyed everything about this bungalow. It was traditional, spacious, comfortable and well located. We would not hesitate to book it everytime we visit Sri Lanka. I highly recommend it.
GREAT BUNGALOW GREAT LOCATION BEAUTIFUL GARDENS
We were so happy staying in the bungalow. The gardens are so beautiful filled with palm trees, flowers, exotic birds, peacocks and a path leading directly onto a stunning beach.
The bungalow is very spacious, very clean and well kept with everything you could possibly need for your stay.
Piyadasa the caretaker/manager is a lovely man, so helpful and really looks after you.
We will definitely recommend it to all our friends and hope to return one day soon.
