loved this guest house, we didn't know there was a kitchen/living area when we booked, what an unexpected treat! Really friendly and helpful welcoming staff, the communal area means that you can meet people and stay for a chat if you want to, but comfortable rooms with chairs on the balcony in the upper rooms means you have space if you want it as well. Upper rooms with bigger sit out area is most expensive, rooms further along with no real sit out bit are a little cheaper with rooms downstairs being the least expensive, but no sit out area. We felt it was a little on the expensive side, but especially worth it for the cooking facilities.

Including the cricket pitch. Galle has recovered but the memory obviously lingers on in the forefront of memories.
Speaking of transport, that's a third notable thing, though of Sri Lanka in general. Fares are stupidly cheap. We paid 70p for a ...
... serene and the monks happy to see us and show us around. The first one is impressive because of its tree and the frescos on the inside, the second because it feels as if it was carved inside the rock. There are red face monkeys to greet us and we watch locals lighting incense and candles. The Lumbini tea factory is a winner. First we get a free tour and some tea, which is way better value than most places that charges you and gives you nothing. The tour is so ...
... had to rely on strangers on the street to guide him. Being set on probably one of the more underdeveloped and secluded beaches in Sri Lanka definitely has it's advantages, this place has embraced the tranquility with an amazing open to the elements bungalow style lodging, set amongst a huge and well maintained garden only 50m from the beach. After all the paper work was complete we headed to the beach for some well sought after refreshment of the swimming type. Making ...
