A nice, quiet place to wind down in Pottuvil near Arugam bay, for those looking to catch waves, but not drown in tourism. The price is for a double room with attached bathroom. There are 3 more rooms.
Eddi's is a 10 year-old place, built to accommodate guests on the 1.5 acres of land that's been in Eddi's family for over 100 years. It's a good-looking, simple home, with 4 rooms sharing a nice veranda that overlooks the garden filled with mango, coconut and kohomba trees. A good spot to camp down and learn how to surf, for those who like to stay away from the more touristy Arugam Bay itself.
Interaction with guests
When we met Eddi (a.k.a. Mister Silva), he welcomed us how we ll like to be welcomed, with a cold drink and a smile. A 63 year-old pensioner, Eddi speaks English well enough to have a real conversation and find out all about his past as a Pradeshiya Sabha minister and owner of a rice mill that produced for the Colombo market. Presently, he lives in a separate home next to the guesthouse, together with his lovely wife. Being the proud owner of a van, he can arrange transport upon request.
