We really enjoyed our stay at Katie's Hideaway. It's a really peaceful place with spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately our roommate was a big spider :) but all in all it was okay. Beside the crowded beach Katie's Hideaway is the perfect accommodation to relax. In Dezember the guesthouse didnt't offer food - which I cannot understand. Only one...

We liked the hidden location a step away from the busy beach area. What really made us feel welcome though was the kind family living next door. The lovely lady always asked us how we were doing and showed a lot more interest in us than the hardly englishspeaking staff who spent the days in front of the tv set...

I'll preface by saying that Katie's Hideaway hits the mark in terms of what it's aiming for. I think it was too pricey for what you get with so many similar places in the area. No beach front that I saw. It is conveniently located 3 minutes walking from the beach and is nice and quiet. The staff was very...

Tucked away and a little tricky to find home if you have been drinking haha but tucked away means nice and quiet. Large rooms, new, clean, big comfy bed, nice balcony for a beer. A little out of our budget. Would have also been nicer to have been closer to beach

We were only here one night and ended paying a bit more than we were hoping for (we were on a real budget!) But, if 3500 rupees isn't too much for you, then this was a nice little place. The owners were kind and arranged a tuk tuk for us the next day to Tangalla. It is the only place...

Katie's hideaway was a good find. Large room with nice bathroom and balcony, good value for money, although it cost another 1,000rupee for air con. A must! And this was following negotiation. Friendly family running the place, helpful when we were trying to make plans to move on and plan what we were doing in Mirissa.

We spent one night in Mirissa and were lucky enough to stumble across this place. Budget priced rooms, with A/C, TV and a little balcony. The bed was a lovely brand new king size and very comfortable too. The family are very trust worthy, the apartments are secure and off the main road. Not to mention there is a rather...

Katie's hideaway was the best value accommodation during our stay in Sri Lanka. The guesthouse is down a small lane, just a few hundred meters from the beach & restaurants. The room is simple but clean, with an attached bathroom. Nothing fancy, but if you on a tight budget it is definitely worth it. Katie is very friendly and helpful....

This is a delightful guesthouse run by the enthusiastic and helpful Nala. I've stayed at Mirissa many times over the years and love the place. This is an ideal base with basic but comfortable rooms (ask for the beach cabana - awesome views). The food was the best we had in the whole of Sri Lanka - try the squid...

We stayed there for 2 nights, in the hut right on the beach. Afterwards, we wished we'd planned some more time there. Location was stunning, and the hospitality and food were great. Room was as you'd expect for a beach hut, so not particularly clean, but bed was comfortable enough, and it was worth sacrificing some comfort for the location....

“There are two nicer, newer rooms at the top on the right as you look at the block. Ask for one of those. There is a family room and a double room.”
