We spent 3 nights here in a new room. Lovely room and worth the extra over the old rooms. Breakfast was nice although not included. Owners were lovely and went out of their way to help. Quiet and peaceful as its not right on the beach. Recommend this hotel.

Nice and cosy place with clean rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Location is close to the beach and the main shopping/restaurant area but still a bit away from all the buzz. Room had a nice balcony with trees filled with animals. Perfect for a beer or a coffee!

Our first stay was for 4 days.The place is situated on the road to Jungle Beach, but still close to Unawatuna Beach. The rooms are clean, breakfast is great, you can choose between western...

I stumbled across this place by chance and was happy to have done so. The family all make you feel very at home and the accommodation is very good value when compared against what hotels close by charge. It was nice to chat with Lilith and his wife and the Birdhouse felt like a genuine home stay. Top tip: go...

There is a nice garden surrounding the hotel, and the family running the hotel is really nice. They also have a cute three-legged dog. We rented a room with ac for 4000 rs/night, and stayed there for 2 nights. I haven't slept so well as I did here, since I got to sri lanka. The breakfast was nice, and loads...

Lilith and his wife and the most incredible hosts you could hope to find. So kind and genuine and accommodating. I spent over a week here and would have spent longer if I could! The place is spotless, a few minutes from the beach but still quiet. As a woman travelling alone I felt very comfortable and safe without feeling...

This was a lovely guest house. I went to Sri Lanka (I work in Bangalore) for a few days, and it was the first time I had traveled alone. This was a beautiful place to stay, and I had a large A/C room to myself. The rooms are very spacious, and you can easily fit two people comfortably. The owner...

First of all, Lalith and his family are superb hosts. They're very accommodating and helpful. Their dog Rexy is adorable and such a joy to have around. She just waits on you for company. She is curious yet does not cross boundaries with those uncomfortable with dogs. They have two ground floor rooms easily accessible for wheelchairs as there are...

After spending 2 weeks in SriLanka I can say the birdhouse was my favorite home away from home. The owner was more than helpful with anything we needed. Very friendly and accomidating. The rooms were big and spacious with a great sitting area outside of the room. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
