Very nice and quiet, which is not easy to find in Mirissa. Beautiful garden with bananatrees and lots of flowers. Really close to the beach, maximum two minutes walk. We stayed with two children and rented the two rooms on the ground floor and the kitchen. The outside kitchen was lovely to enjoy breakfast and relax in the hammock. Comfortable beds, very clean, the sleeping rooms have a fan. Stayed much longer than we planed. The hosting family is very nice, very helpful and received us with a nice breakfast. We recommend this place.

From the moment of our arrival till the one we left the house everything was perfect! We expected a lot, but this was even more than that. House location- couldn't be better. Practically at the beach, 20 meters from tourist info where one can reserve short trip or exchange money, a few minutes of walking from main road, big markets and local food sellers and tuk-tuk drivers. Rooms are big, with comfortable beds and anti-mosquito nets.Every room in the house is spacious and clean, with all necessary widgets. Kitchen and eating area are out of the house which is very nice- to eat in your own garden-jungle. Bodhini and whole her family are great, pleasant, welcoming and full of useful peaces of information. If you are interested in going whale watching I recommend to ask them to organize it for you. Also, if you want to try all exotic, but fresh fruits my recommendation is to buy it in the same street where the house is, just 100 meters left. One really nice family sells there, they are always welcoming and ready to choose best peaces of fruit for you. If we decide to visit Mirissa again we have no doubts where will we stay.

Perfect hosts! When we arrived, we were greeted by the entire family and treated to tea. Sofian's Garden Villa is ideally located across the street from the beach, down the road from Raja & the Whales, and close to many shops & restaurants. As the other reviews state—no AC and small rooms—but perfect for those who want to spend long days at the beach or exploring the region.

Together with my mother, father and my brother, we invite guests to our villa. We have a big garden, where we nurse our coconut palms, banana- and hibiscus plants among other flowers. All "hiding" from the main road, in a peaceful setting. From our gate it´s less than 100 meters to the Indian Ocean and the famous Mirissa beach, with the "surf point" on the west side.
On request we can also prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for you.
