About this listing
Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, Peaceful Villa lives up to its name. Located a short 3 minute walk to surfing at Mirissa Point as well as shops and restaurants, but far enough that you don't hear traffic. A perfect place to call home.
We have 3 bedrooms each with a private bathroom. Feel free to use our kitchen, living room and patio where you can relax and listen to birds and peacocks. The occasional monkey also makes an appearance. You can store your surfboards in our living room so they don't take up space in your room. Each room is furnished with a king sized bed, mosquito net, ceiling fan, clothes rack and small table for storage. Bathrooms are modern and recently updated.
This room does not have an A.C. but one of our other rooms does. We also have a third room which is for the more budget conscious traveler. Please see our other listings for details.
Bedroom with private bathroom. Shared kitchen, living room and covered patio.
Interaction with guests
You'll be staying in our family home and we're available for anything you might need. Malika is happy to cook you a delicious, Sri Lankan meal. Her husband is a fisherman so you'll have access to fresh seafood daily. Their son Dinesh will be your main point of contact. He speaks English very well, so communication is not a problem. He also has a tuk tuk and is happy to drive you to different beaches or for sightseeing. He's a surfer as well so he's familiar with all the local surf points. If there's anything you need, just ask.
Mirissa is a very laid back fishing village with a great surf point, restaurants along the beach and shops on the main road. Peaceful Villa is located across the street from a Buddhist temple. 3 minute walk to the main street with shops and restaurants in one direction, 3 minute walk to beach in the other direction.
Mirissa is a small village and it's easy to walk anywhere. 3 minute walk to the nearest surf point. 10 minute tuk tuk ride to Weligama Beach, excellent beginner surf break. Close to public transportation (bus, tuk tuk, taxi) and within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. 3 hours to Yala park, 45 minutes to Galle, 35 minutes to Unawatuna, big Buddha statue in Matara. And whale watching right here in Mirissa. Dinesh is happy to drive you in his tuk tuk or arrange a taxi for you.

Ayubowen! I'm Dinesh and I've lived in Mirissa my whole life. When I'm not helping run my family's guesthouse, I drive a tuk tuk, raise two sons with my wife and try to find time to go surfing.
