This is a great place. We stayed at Rasika's for a month altogether. It's a small 2-bedroom house with a lovely porch and garden. The kitchen is small but has all the essentials - fridge, microwave, stove (no oven), blender etc. There's a living room, 2 bathrooms, prayer room and 2 bedrooms. There's a nice tv, great sound system and wifi. The wifi has limited data (typical in Sri Lanka, it seems) but Rasika reloaded it twice for us during our stay. Outside are a small table with 4 comfortable chairs. We loved sitting out there to catch the cool breeze and enjoy the flowers and occasional animals. There are large (harmless) iguanas, monkeys and lots of birds. We left for a few days on an excursion and missed the place! It just feels like home after awhile. The only complaint we had was that the house is open to mosquitos and small bugs. It has a typical Sri Lankan style with an open area above the window. However, there are several palethrin units installed which release a chemical that's toxic to flying insects but not to humans - and those work. Before sunset, we'd close up the doors and windows, turn those on, and have no problem with mosquitoes. Also, there are mosquito nets over both beds. Rasika himself is a great guy. He was away in Colombo most of the month but went out of his way to make the trip down to Tangalle several times to check on us and help out in any way that we needed. For instance, he told us where to buy inexpensive Ayurvedic medicines and then came to help translate. He's willing to help in any way possible. The neighborhood is uphill of Tangalle and you can walk to the beach in about 15 minutes. The beach is beautiful. It's about a 20-minute walk into town from the house, depending on where you're going. The neighborhood is friendly, quiet, and pretty. Around 5pm everyday, a tuk tuk selling "short eats" comes by with very inexpensive breads and donuts - including vegan options. Every Sunday and Wednesday, there's an awesome market in town with inexpensive fruits, veggies, cloth/clothes, and some housewares. We loved it. Next door to Rasika's is a tuk tuk driver, Lakmal, who is honest, inexpensive and usually available to take you wherever. Ask him to take you to Paradise beach - the hidden beach behind the Eva Lanka hotel, it won't disappoint.
If we return to Sri Lanka, we would definitely consider staying here again including for another long stay.
