Our stay close to Mirawila was an active choice. We knew it was not a touristic area as the western and southern provinces are. Also we made base here to travel to Kurenagala and Negombo. Not dissapointed.

Nimal's place was certainly the most comfortable one of all that we had in Sri Lanka. For such a reasonable price you get really nice house with large living room and spacious bedrooms. You can find here everything you may need, the fully equipped kitchen is at your disposal. The fridge, tableware, cutlery, microwave oven, etc, so there's no problem that breakfast is not included in the price - you can buy everything you need at the supermarket and make it yourself. There are even books, DVDs and many other things for a good rest and relaxation. The size of the living room makes it suitable for a large group of friends. Two separate WCs on the upper floor makes it even more comfortable. The lady who helped us with check-in and check-out was very friendly and made everything needed just in time. We only wish we could stay a bit longer than just one night in this comfortable place!

Great accommodation in Sri Lanka. Host is very communicative and helps arrange transportation to/from the airport, getting groceries, sightseeing... anything you want. We heard there were much better beaches to visit in Sri Lanka and I'm sure there are, but the one within walking distance is by no means poor -- very beautiful, scenic, and not crowded. The home itself is well equipped for comfort. Highly recommended for your stay in Sri Lanka if you want to get away from the airport while still staying close, be near a beach, and have easy access to day trip transportation to other places on the island.

The house is very beautiful, comfortable and clean. Lots of space, very nice. The beach is 10 minutes walking. The only negative - the constant power outages in the area.

I stayed here whilst visiting friends in the area and found the accommodation more than adequate. The lounge and dinning area is very large with sound surround tv and leather sofas which was a nice place to relax on evenings in. There is a large well equipped kitchen and the bedrooms are nice and roomy with air-con and a safe in one of the larger bedrooms. I stayed in the upper apartment and had two balconies to choose from. The apartment is very near to the main puttulam/colombo road and about 5 minutes walk to the beach and sunset beach motel where you can use the pool there for rs300 for the day. There are plenty of restuarants and shops nearby for food supplies and the main hospital is 5 mins away. Nimal the host regularly phoned me to check that everything was alright with the apartment and Wasanthi comes to stay most nights in the drivers house in the gardens and checks if anything is needed. Overall an enjoyable stay in a lovely apartment which I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE here in Marawila! If you want a place that is luxurious yet affordable, near the beach but not touristy, this is your place. We had a wonderful stay here with 10 guests. The house is really two separate apartments, but easily connected with an internal stairway. One of the families in the group stayed downstairs, and my family took the upper level. Both have well stocked kitchens and it was so nice to cook our own food. Most Sri Lanken airbnb's come with a cook, so while they have a kitchen, it is difficult to cook your own meals. However, Wasanthi, the housekeeper and her lovely family do stay in the guest house at night, and are there in case you need them. She made us hoppers for dinner one night, and made a sri lanken dessert with the kids on request. The family is wonderful and know just how much to leave you alone and how much to be around. The house is about a a 10 minute walk to a very private and lovely little beach, that is next to a nice hotel, Sunset Beach. The food there is quite good; we asked for Sri Lanken spicy one night and had fun drinking it down with our beer! You can swim in the pool there for free if you order some food and drinks. Truly beautiful sunsets! Wasanthi's husband has a tuk tuk so he took us to the town of Chilaw to four Hindu temples which were very intesting to see. Also Marawila has some good batik shops where you can see the process of batik making. Otherwise it is pretty much sand and sun, but Negombo or Columbo are other day trips from here. We've been to several airbnb homestays in Sri Lanka, and for the price, this one has been the best value. Clean, comfy beds, GREAT pillows and towels! Western dishwasher and washing machine. Hot water on demand. AND GREAT WIFI. Supermarket and wine store just a short tuktuk ride away, and tuktuk readibly available a 3 minute walk away. What else can I say? Although the location is slightly remote, if you want a few days of sun and a true local flavor all within an hour of the airport, Northwood is a super choice. Thank you Nimal for checking in with us during our stay, and please tell you staff that they were wonderful!
