Do you want to live in a tree house in Sri Lanka and wake up to the sweet chirping of the birds in the wilderness? This is simply a lovely place to stay, and it is both cozy and spacious. And add to that the fact that it is a tree house! A stay here gives you an opportunity to live like a local amidst the flora and fauna that the island nation boasts. The host is fairly new but from the description and pictures, it is surely a very nice place to stay! For a taste of life like a local, away from the city, spending some time here is recommended. You may be surprised to find that there is Wi-Fi too!

A 5-7 minute walk from Mirissa Beach takes you to a home-away-from-home. This place is named Peacock Villa for a reason; the house is surrounded by peacocks! It has large and clean rooms that have received positive feedback from guests, and it is topping the list of Airbnb accommodations in Sri Lanka! Makes for more reasons to stay here, right? There are lovely views from the house; it is a pleasing sight to see lots of green, especially when you wake up and step out to breathe in some fresh air. And you can’t forget the friendly and helpful hosts, Charindu and his dad.

12. Amitha’s Guesthouse, Matara
Cost: 22-23 USD per guest per night; 15 USD extra charge per night after first guest
This is a stunning villa located away from the busy main road and very close to the beach in Matara. This guesthouse is in close proximity to surfing beaches, such as Weligama and Mirissa, as well as tea estates in Akuressa. This gives you a wonderful opportunity to explore all that you might have wanted to do – surf, taste tea, walk, and cycle. Add to that the fact that you can eat some amazing and tasty local home food! This place can accommodate 7 people and it has 3 bedrooms.
13. Garden Front Villa, Ahangama, SP
Cost: 92-95 USD / night for 1 person, additional 21 USD (approx.) per night after first guest
This villa is for 1 or 2 people, has a large swimming pool, and is just 5 minutes from the beach. The hosts offer free yoga classes twice a day, organic food, and free bicycles to ride! Sounds exciting? Yes, it does! The hosts are very warm and friendly, and helpful when it comes to planning your itinerary for the day. The one minus point might be the firm beds, which might not be welcome to all, but if you are already into yoga and feel it is alright to sleep on firm beds, this is a good place to stay. The villa is located slightly away from the Galle Highway, but worry not; it is only a tuk-tuk ride away!
Wish to experience the life of a rustic villager? You must stay at Kumbura Eco Lodge. Be it the design or the food, everything is local and so typical of the countryside – something that has to be enjoyed by people living fast lives in the city. Palm leaf roofing and rooms made out of natural wood create a natural atmosphere. Of course, there is electricity, but there is also a special thrill in living like this. There are quite a few interesting places to visit near the accommodation. This lodge offers private rooms, and can accommodate up to 10 guests at a time.

Owned by an expat Australian family that lives its ideal in Sri Lanka whenever they can get here, this property is like a dream. Overlooking the jungle, a Buddhist temple, and the lovely Unawatuna Beach, this former local villager’s home was renovated recently into this lovely place to stay. The interiors have been done up very tastefully with an eclectic mix of antique and locally-designed handmade furniture. The pool is very inviting and the outdoor kitchen is a treat to try out! You need to stay there to get a feel of what is described here.

Wake up to a spectacular view of Sri Lanka’s famed Ella Gap. Ella Mount View Guest Inn sits atop a hill facing the lush tropical forests that cover the surrounding peaks and valleys, punctuated by picturesque waterfalls and rolling tea plantations. The inn can accommodate up to 3 guests comfortably in its spacious and clean rooms. Marvel at the incredible view as you enjoy a sumptuous and excellent breakfast out on your own private balcony. But watch out for the monkeys; if you’re not attentive one might just swoop in to steal your food! The accommodation is simple and uncluttered. But all the essentials are conveniently provided and there’s adequate Wi-Fi. The inn is just a stone’s throw to the center of town and just a few minutes walk to the nearby train station.

If it’s an escape you seek then it’s an escape you’ll find here at the OFF-GRID Eco Friendly Resort right along the shores of Kalpitiya Lagoon. Accommodation is in cabanas in the style of local fishermen’s homes and constructed by local builders using local, sustainable materials. There are 3 bedrooms that can take in up to 6 guests in individual beds, each one equipped with its own mosquito net. The resort also features a well-kept garden and a coconut plantation and a restaurant where you can order sumptuous vegetable and seafood dishes and tropical fruit juices to keep you refreshed. When you’ve satisfied your food cravings head over to one of the hammocks to lift your feet up and just chill. Take advantage of the resort’s relaxing and laid-back atmosphere and join an early morning yoga session on the elevated yoga deck facing the lagoon. The resort may be off-grid but not entirely isolated as Wi-Fi is available.

Although, the name of this accommodation sounds boring, the place looks everything but that. It is really cozy and with a very “at-home” feel, as you can see for yourself. The place is pretty quiet, they welcome pets, and there is Wi-Fi! You can cook in their lovely kitchen and also head out to the beach just outside. Isn’t that cool? This accommodation can take up to 2 guests. The host is very friendly and helpful. This accommodation is just a 5-10 minute drive from Weligama bus station.

Adjoining a country club in Colombo, this accommodation is very close to Dehiwala, Mount Lavinia, and all forms of transportation. They offer a fully-equipped kitchen and everything that you might expect to find at your home. The accommodation is very clean and in a very nice neighborhood. As with many such listings on Airbnb, the hosts are amazing, helpful and very friendly.

Located very close to the beach in Beruwala (about 800 meters’ / 2,625 feet walking distance), you can watch the fresh catch being brought in by the colorful boats in the morning. Take a stroll to the markets and enjoy walking down the longest beach in Sri Lanka. Laze around on the beach or swim in the sea; if you are lucky you might spot a few turtles! There is a turtle hatchery near the beach so keep an eye out for these precious little creatures! This apartment is located near the Iruwi River, hence the name! An important fact to note is that even though it is next to a river, you will not see any pesky mosquitoes, so you are assured of a peaceful sleep during the night and no disturbances during the day either.
