Lalith was very very helpful in communicating via email when I needed to reserve my room and also change my reservation due to flight problems. They are literally...

Friendly host and family in a great location. Only a few minutes walk to the beach area, but far enough not to hear the bars and restaurants at night. Good breakfast and the best eggs and toast we had.

But after four days the owner wanted us to move out because there was someone coming to our room for two weeks. So we moved to another place in the neighborhood. Then the owner got a really bad conscience and offered us...

I enjoyed my stay at Birdhouse immensely. The room and the bathroom were perfectly clean and the bed really comfortable. We loved the little sitting area in front of the room. The most important thing: our hosts were so welcoming and sweet, that they really made us feel at home. I definitely recommend this place to anybody who visits Unawatuna.
