I can only agree with Legser - we had the same experience.
To add a few extra things: We stayed here the first night we arrived, and basically just relaxed so it was great that breakfast items were provided so we didn't have to organise that, the kids loved having their own bedroom with their own bathroom, Heather gaves us insight on the Yala prices which saved us a bit of money there, and with Amal living close by we felt safe too.
The Mudhut is a really a nice and beautiful place, and we truly enjoyed relaxing and staying here.
The Mud Hut is a great place to start your trip in Sri Lanka. The house is VERY clean and is professionally cleaned every two days, which is brilliant, particularly if you are scared of insects. It is literally sterile, you don't even need mosquito nets.
Unlike many properties advertised the house is completely private, it is not located in someone else's garden, so you have all privacy you can wish for. Yet Heather ( owner) is available 24/7 and is always happy to help. In fact, Heather is bloody brilliant! She really does look after her guests. Literally any problem you might have, she will solve in no time. She knows local life all too well and can suggest brilliant places to visit and can make reservations for you whether it is a lunch or a massage for a local price, which is rare in Sri Lanka. Her tuktuk driver Amal, who lives nearby, is great ( his wife makes the most amazing coconut roti) he charges fair price and never takes percentage if brings you places ( unlike all other tuktuk drivers, literally without exception)
Overall I would say it is a great place to start your holidays because it is SAFE and clean, if you are looking for a private and hastlefree place to stay, its perfect. It is a modern house located in a small village so you get the best of the both worlds, the beach is literally 5 min walk and Unawatuna ( plenty of things to do there) is just 10 min ride by tuktuk.
THANK YOU HEATHER!! WE HAD A FAB TIME!
