Our stay here was definitely enhanced by Sathesh the hotel manager. He was extremely helpful and went above and beyond his duties. Our stay wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for him. Location great as right in the middle of passikudah and kalkudah so quick easy access to both beaches.

Great seafood and a great host. Meet some awesome people and highly recommend. There are two beaches close to the Guesthouse - the Kalkuda Beach is by far the best - lovely deep water to swim in and hardly anyone around. The other beach is crazy busy.

Visited as a group, given a spacious room that could accommodate all of us, at a very reasonable rate. Had serval Sri Lankan breakfasts here which were huge and superb as well as an evening meal of prawns, squid, and fish; again reasonable and delicious!

Very nice and affordable place to stay in the middle of kalkudah and pasakudah! The rooms are what you pay for, but the bed is nice and the fan is working. It is located 3 minutes from kalkudah beach where there are free sun beds and a super dreamy beach. If you walk 10 minutes you will get to pasakudah...

The guesthouse is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach. The rooms are basic but clean. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. My boyfriend and I didn't have a chance to eat dinner there during our stay but the seafood dishes looked amazing. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Moni Guesthouse 6 days and did not want to go - the place is run by very friendly and nice people, who are trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's budget, though clean and quite comfortable place.Their restaurant is great - aks for coconut rotis and fresh fish :) And it's really two minutes...

What can i say? I have never met anyone like sathesh anywhere in sri lanka!!! The absolute boss in these parts! Not only can he get you around the bay but he'll organize anything on the east coast from train to hotels! The guy almost saved my whole departure trip back to colombo! What can i say more? Thank you...

We had great time there, staff are great and helpful, food is fantastic; if you are vegetarian, there's no problem ... they made great meals for us too. Both bays are near, you can have nice walks there ... you've got everything you need there.

We enjoyed our stay there so much. The breakfast taste very good and it was more than we could eat. The rooms are clean and have each a seperate bathroom, the beds are equipped with mosquito nets. The owners are so friendly and we´ve got very helpful recommendations from they. Thanks a lot!

Really close from the Beach of Pasikudah, Mini guest house offers a comfortable stay for a really cheap price, rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is attentive and friendly.

“If, for some reason you decide to stay there, try to get the room in the middle on the right, as there's no noise from the place's dining area. Don't believe the owner that one or another room will be yours the next night. He doesn't remember who sleeps where and for how many nights.”

“Choose a room at the back of the property as our room was a little noisier at the front. Yet we still stayed quite happily for 4 nights. The vibe here is so welcoming.”

“rooms on the second floor are better than those on the first floor. book in advance and make sure you call the owner in case you are arriving late, so you dont loose your room”
