Nice guesthouse with clean, simple rooms with van. We had no warm water but the host knows everything about what to do in Mirissa, transport times and prices. And she organised a whale trip for us with a really good company for a good price. Normal sri lanka breakfast. Overall really nice stay!

Loved our stay here. Nice clean room, great communal area. Chairs, hangers, hooks where you need them. People who run it are lovely and very hands on. Good position, quiet and short walk to the beach. Laundry service which for some reason always excites my wife

It's very quiet, you only hear the singing of the birds. The family was very welcoming and helpful with everything. They booked a whale watching tour for us and it was...

We had a great time at Ancient Tree! The place is just a 5 minute walk from the beach in a green and quiet area. The owner is super nice and very helpful. There is a sri lankan breakfast included which is absolutely delicious. Rooms were perfectly clean as well. Recommended!

Our balcony room was clean and very comfortable, with an excellent modern bathroom attached. Our host Pushpa served fabulous breakfasts which we enjoyed on our balcony amidst the tranquil lush scenery of Sri Lanka. A...

I have stayed in ancient tree house only for one day, but it was really nice. Delicious srilankan breakfast. The beach is only tree minutes away. Ancient tree house is situated not directly at the main road so it is a very quiet relaxing places. I enjoyed that a lot. Best way (and cheapest) to book is directly via email...

My stay at the guest house was perfect, the room has everything you need especially because the price is so affordable. I felt completely looked after, from assistance with my transport bookings to cups of tea and dinner. Thank you so much for going above and beyond you made my stay in Mirissa :D
