“Charming Little Villa”

Charming little villa with wonderful A/C rooms. Perfect for a peaceful stay not too far from the beach. Excellent breakfast, just the best we had during our trip! The room was clean & comfortable as listed. The host has been very nice to us, she provides all kinds of help, definitely recommend this place.

“Homely, clean, close to the beach and easily accessible.”

We had a lovely time and did not regret booking this place for more than two weeks. The owner, Nadee, always went out of her way to ensure we felt at home, we were comfortable and happy. She even installed a satellite television for us, (a family with 3 children). She also took our teen age daughter out for meals and shopping on a number of occasions as well as take our other two children to the beach. Our 4 year old daughter still refers to Summer Valley Boutique as our Home in Sri Lanka. We had the top floor to ourselves.

We had a variety of tasty Sri Lankan and English breakfast. We also had a few scrumptious dinners on request.

The owner is a patient, warm hearted, friendly and hard working person. She provided useful information including good and relatively cheap places to have meals. She also advised us of tourist places nearby and how best to get to them, e.g Turtle Farm, and Water Safari etc. She even took us to a Villa close by where we were able to use their swimming pool.

There are Tuk Tuks driving up and down the road in front of Summer Valley, so transport is not a problem. We could also easily go to Galle Fort, either by Tuk Tuk or even by local buses.

If we ever go back to Unawatuna, we will book the place again.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

On a positive note the manager (owner) and her mother are trying their best to make this place work. Unfortunately the owner has taken on a massive job and purchased this large property which requires a lot of maintenance. We booked the whole house for our 2 night stay and were disappointed with the very basic rooms and bathrooms. The pictures and descriptions provided on the Tripadvisor site were misleading and evoked higher expectations. In fact the hot water system in one bathroom didn't work while the others sounded like very loud angle grinders. When taking a shower it is impossible not to wet the whole bathroom as the shower has no screen and is located in between the toilet and basin. I strongly suggest Tripadvisor to visit these premises prior to advertising them on the website.

Nice place for a family unfortunately we stayed only for a night. Quality accommodation for a bargain. We would visit another again if there is another opportunity .one disappointing fact is the charge for the BBQ Grill requested 2000Rs just for the machine.

I stayed in this property during my visit to the southern coast and had a fabulous stay. The place was off the main street with friendly neighbourhood , 5 minutes walk to a beautiful beach and a lagoon with a small surf break. Property is newly built, we enjoyed our breakfasts in the patio with a nice view. Clean, comfortable place with good value for money, delicious breakfast served by friendly staff:))
