“The perfect place”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in September 2015

I've been here ten days. It was a perfect 10 days in a great location. Well house was the best accommodation in Sri Lanka, which I met during my trip. Excellent staff, tasty kitchen, clean place and comfort of the highest class. It is a good choice to your relax. The owner is a great man in the right place. I recommend to all who want to enjoy great accommodation. Thank you!

“Another wonderful stay here”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The owner maintains this property to the highest standards and continually improves the facilities. The staff are charming, efficient and professional.
Everything is spotless, the food is great in this quiet yet centrally located villa, everywhere a short Tuk Tuk ride away.
I was again in the smallest of the three bedrooms, the use of space makes it seem twice the size.The master bedroom is as good as any 5 star suite in the world and the same can be said for the second bedroom.Each has its own private space outside.
I will definitely return.

“Back in Paradise!”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Finally back at The Well House! For the 4th time! Now with friends from Norway. We love the pool, food and the staff - and not to forget the beach, 1 minute walk from the house! Brilliant! Looking forward to next year! I'll be back :-))

“Living the high life”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our three week stay. Well placed for surfing - at least for beginners - lovely space to relax in and a great, flexible staff team who make the atmosphere very relaxing whilst providing an excellent service and delicious food - and were wonderful with our baby daughter. Thanks Dimuthu, Sudat, Sunni and Gamini.

“Pool acidic burning toddler, not fixed for 4 days, owner abuse and sought review removal before promised refund”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in April 2015

Upon arrival, jumped in pool, acidic water burnt us including 2 year old son (!!!).
Waited 4 days for pool to be fixed. Everything else was generally great, except also had continual issue with power outages (and generator not working).
We had people disturbing us for 4 days, and a separate tenant visible and living in corner of garden.
Owner made excuses as to why pool not a big problem and his cost to fix(!!), while we had booked villa on basis of having pool and relaxing in garden.
Owner originally promised minor refund, and then did not make refund for 9 months.
Owner then fraudulently promised to make refund if fair reviews were removed.
