Tropical Beach House is everything that is promised. Well, almost. The house is beautiful, exactly what you see on its website. The first floor room extending to an open kitchen is the best the place … More
Firstly, Sanjay, thanks for the lovely comments about the house and its location. It's so nice to hear that you appreciated some of the beauty of the place especially given that you were staying in an off-season month, which explains why the beach was particularly quiet then.
We are definitely going to digest your constructive criticisms but here are a few comments that I would like to make in response:
1. The Tropical Beach House is offered on a self-catering basis. It is not a hotel. We can usually arrange for someone to prepare meals for you or assist in a myriad other ways. However, in this case, due to circumstances beyond our control, I believe that nobody was available to cook for you. I apologise but this is really just one of those things that sometimes happens. Given its proximity, Cinnamon Gardens was a reasonable alternative for you. Obviously, we have no control over the service offered this but I have always enjoyed eating there and have had lots of positive feedback from guests who have done the same over the years. I should also explain for the benefit of others that Rs5,000 is currently GBP£22 and this does not seem to me an unreasonable food and drink bill for 4 people.
2. Chaminda is primarily the caretaker at the property. His role is varied but he usually works much harder when there are no guests staying. When the property is occupied, he generally respects the privacy of guests and often enjoys a little well-earned down time. However, he should still be available to help out and clean your rooms as often as daily, if that is your wish. This is not what everyone wants, which is why I say in my welcome notes that you must make it clear at the beginning of your stay how you wish to be catered for. I'm sorry to hear that you had difficulties communicating with each other.
3. Mahinda is my local business partner and a fellow investor. He is almost always available to greet new arrivals but at this particular time, he really did have quite a bit else going on. However, as you say, he still made time for a daily appearance and was available to speak on the phone with you at any time.
4. The Tropical Beach House is indeed about 2km South of Hikkaduwa town, which makes it just about the most perfectly located beachfront property in the area for its proximity to the vast majority of activities that can be found BETWEEN the two locations yet still remaining in a largely residential area.
