I don't think you can get better value for your money. Santha makes beeakfast at any time you desire between 5 and 11 to accomodate your safari schedule. She won't tell you herself, but she is also a great chef and will prepare dinner if you ask her. Helped wash, dry and fold all our clothes while we were out...

We stayed at JC Guesthouse for one night to do a safari in Yala national park. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, and the food cooked by Santha and his family (the owner, Champa was away and Santha is her brother) was really good. We had a whole grilled fish which we would definitely recommend. We also did the safari...

We were glad we chose this guesthouse for our visit to Yala National Park. Champa is a very friendly and welcoming host. We enjoyed our conversation with her. She organized via email our transportation with her brother UP who’s a great and safe driver, and our private safari with her second brother Santha for very reasonable prices. The afternoon safari...

We stayed here three nights in July while we were visiting Yala National Park. The owner, Champa, is very friendly and accommodating, and was able to arrange our tour of Yala with her brother, as well as our transport to our next destination. Our room had an overhead fan and mosquito netting over the bed. The windows don’t have screens,...

A lovely family is taking care of the place. They'll go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable.They provide nice and clean accommodation.The only thing is that we had a lot of insects it's probably due to the proximity of the 2 national parks.

J.C. Guest house is a modest house being rented out and run by a family. The place is very clean and the room is quite comfortable though with no air conditioning.
