Absolutely fantastic!! Being my first Airbnb experience I was slightly apprehensive of what it was going to be like. We were met by a gentleman called Kumara who couldn't have been more helpful & friendly throughout our stay. Although the property is located 1km from the beach, please do not let this put you off. Kumara is on hand throughout the day to pick you up and take you where ever need be. He even provided us with a local phone that we could use to call him. He would be ready to collect within 5 minutes. I have never had a personal chauffeur but this was like having one. The room was spacious and the balcony views over the lake were fantastic. I struggled the first night with the heat as the room didn't have aircon, but that's me being overly fussy. There is a large fan. Breakfast would be served each morning at a time suited and was eaten overlooking the lake. The overall stay of accommodation was very good, but made even better by Kumara's hospitality. If I am fortunate to return to the area, I would definitely book again.

This place is incredible - amazing design, lovely location and generous host. The rooms are spacious and have wonderful views of the lake and mangroves - including monkeys, birds and monitor lizards! Jimutha looked after us fabulously - helping us with motorbikes, delicious breakfast and our onward journey. We highly recommend this place - it provides a peaceful and very comfortable haven from the close by touristy areas. Would love to come back!

You would be a fool not to stay here! Perfect location next to the lake where we watched a variety of wildlife and occasional storm from the sheltered balcony. Although a short tuk tuk ride from the beach, don't let this put you off, as this place has the tranquillity and calm that you are unlikely to find elsewhere on your trip. An incredible retreat from the Mirissa strip along the beach. The breakfast was delicious and the WiFi excellent. Even more beautiful and luxurious than it looks in the pictures, and Jimutha was the perfect host.

The house was beautiful and beyond anywhere else we stayed in Sri Lanka. However the nonexistent wifi and isolated location made it difficult for us to navigate around Mirissa and explore what the town had to offer on our 3 day stay. Jimutha arranged whale watching and safari for us which was very kind and both amazing experiences. I would advise any future guests of the lakelet to have a plan in place before you arrive as the lack of wifi makes if near enough impossible to arrange trips/look up restaurants when at the house.

What a beautiful and special place! The Lakelet is elegant and Jimutha has a real vision. Well worth getting away from the beach crowd and having the peace of the lake and the birds. Sublime! Thank you also for being friendly and extremely helpful with minor issues.

Jimutha's flat was a great place to be based. It is slightly off the main roads, but easy to get to the beach (where there are lots of great restaurants and bars). Very clean and even nicer than in the photos. Breakfast was also really good. Jimutha was a friendly and very accommodating host.

Jimutha's place is tranquil, well-designed and quiet. Jimutha was very helpful with everything - from organising bikes to helping us with bus to take to ella. We would definitely stay at Jimutha's place again.
