We stayed in Sounds of Nature for a week and enjoyed every single moment!
Rooms are clean and cosy, service is excellent, best breakfast and Thai dinner we ever had in Sri Lanka!
Whale watching trip that they organised was awesome))
Definitely recommend this place, you won't regret!
The house is located in big garden, outside of Mirissa but still within walking distance to the beach. Borys (the owner) makes great omelettes for the breakfast :-) and he is really helpful. The rooms contain everything you need and the garden around the house is just a lovely place to relax.
My only complaint goes to the bed which is sort of time-worn and creaks terribly.
Nice place to stay.
Borys the owner, was very helpful and welcoming. Rooms are clean. Location is good, 2min away from Mirissa beach by tuktuk. Breakfast was nice and very generous. Would definitely recommend the place.
My friend and I stayed here two nights in a non AC room on the upper floor. The room, bed, bath towels, and toilet/shower was clean. There is a ceiling fan, a cupboard with a safe, no mosquito nets but this was not an issue for us as there were no mosquitoes in our room even though we opened both doors to let the breeze in. We did have a problem with ants on the floor due to a dead bug right outside our door (and thus the ants were marching it off and had various ant scouts all about), but this was more or less resolved when the caretaker, Dima, sped off to buy insecticide immediately after we told him about the problem.
Other than the ants, we did enjoy the "sounds of nature" especially in the morning. There are wooden chairs outside our door, and wooden deck lounges on the roof, second floor terrace, and ground floor for lazing around. Breakfast was decent, with choice of boiled or fried egg or omelette, along with toast, watermelon and banana, yogurt, and coffee/tea.
The "hotel" itself is situated just outside of Mirissa, tens of metres from the "end of Mirissa" signboard on the main road, inside a narrow little lane with high red clay walls just wide enough for a car to navigate. Besides the Copacabana resort, most of the other residents are local, and we did not meet more than a few tourists around the hotel. There is no signpost on the main road except for a small white one high up with a little Buddhist swastika sign and some Sinhalese(?) letters. It's about a 15-minute walk from the nearest beach front cafe, and it's advisable to bring a flashlight at night. There is a path to a quiet little beach with a very rocky shore if you turn right from the hotel entrance and walk for a few minutes.
All in, the hotel is a nice quiet retreat after a day at the main beach with the beachfront cafes and many other tourists walking around.
We spent two nights there recently. Place is quiet and lovely. Rooms are cosy, clean and comfortable. Beautiful beaches just near by. Our host Dima was lovely, very attentive, kind and helpful. I recommend it to everyone.
