Lovely guesthouse, Praneeth and family are very friendly. His wife cooks an amazing coconut pancake for breakfast! Right on a quiet beautiful beach away from the crowds but not far to walk to the main beach. Highly recommend!

Spent a couple of nights here in April 2016. Welcome not the friendliest but I've had much worse. All money to be paid upfront on check in, didn't bother me but there was clearly some sort of owner baggage around this. I found out later that owner has a beef with people checking out early for cheaper accommodation options -... More

great location 10min walk (tuk-tuk 100rs/bus 20rs) from the center, but right on the beach - feels like private. sea was a bit rough, so swimming is and lounging is not so enjoyable (little shade is available). also low visibility for snorkeling - but saw few turtles from the beach. rooms were hot this time of the year, fan helped...

This guest house is very cozy, rooms are clean and nice. The little beach in front of the hotel is perfect to relax and see the fisherman at work, It's a hidden corner of Paradise. Breakfast is wonderful and if wanted, the owner can provide a nice typical dinner, with fish rice and fruit!

Stayed here 4 nights. Place is right on the beach and looks lovely. Breakfast was good. I booked on booking.com and had to pay up front when I arrived. The rooms are small and basic. No hot water or ac and could not put paper in the toilet. For the price i paid there are better places in Mirissa.

Can't really fault this place at all: friendly owners, right on the beach, nice courtyard area, relaxed atmosphere, and the best food we had in Sri Lanka. It's really cheap and transport is easy to sort out from here too. As the hotel description says, the rooms are basic, but there's a bed and a bathroom, so what more do... More

Praneeth's guesthouse is a paradise. We were booked in a fancy hotel, but changed to this place. The patio has personality, the garden has many nice shaded spots to sit and the beach is just at your feet. Our room had a very nice spacious balcony with seaview. The fan was a bit fast, and is enough to keep the... More

We extended our stay here because we loved it so much. Mirissa itself and the main beach was quite hectic but at praneeth you could unwind and had a small private beach right out the front. It was lovely! The rooms are really nice with the best beds we've had so far in Sri Lanka (3weeks of travel!) and the... More

This place is very nice. There are nice paintings on the walls and you really are directly at the beach. You can see that there is much love in every detail. What my bad experience with this guest house makes my rating so bad is that the host was the unfriendliest person we came across in Sri lanka so far.... More
