We rented this fantastic house for five weeks with our two small children. We found the place great for a longer stay as it is quiet off the busy street of Hikkaduwa, has a well-equipped kitchen and clean and comfortable rooms. You have the upper floor all by yourself and a really kind and caring Sri Lankan family living downstairs (separate entrance). The closest beach is a 15-20 minutes walk, or five min by tuktuk. Owen was a great host. He met us upon arrival, always replied fast to any questions and helped us solve problems. For example, when one of the AC's broke down he took care of it the same afternoon. We really recommend both the house and Owen as a host to any future guests. If you are looking for a comfortable house in a beautiful surrounding this is it!
