“Homestay on Rekawa Beach. Just very lovely hosts”
Reviewed yesterday NEW
When I arrived at the hostel I found that the owner was very friendly. He showed me how to walk to the beach from the guesthouse and where the turtles were. The owner of the guesthouse (name is Kandu) has a job as a fisherman. On the very first night I even got the chance to go fishing with the old man! It was absolutely fabulous.
If you want to get there, ask the tuk-tuk drivers to take you to Kandu's place. Everyone knows him. Though many tuk-tuk drivers say the place may not exist, it does. The reason why they won't may not take you there is because they get probably more commission at the more expensive cabana's/resorts. This is definitely the cheapest place where you can stay (I've been shopping around to find a place to stay that fit my budget).The guesthouse is located on a 3-minute-walk from the beach, a 5-minute-walk from the turtle-spotting sight. Nearby there is a lagoon, which is quite scenic at sunset.
The owner's wife cooks 3 meals a day, and you can join them whenever you like (for a small contribution of course, though they don't ask you to). You would be stupid if you wouldn't. I absolutely loved the food, and every day there's fresh fish!
The rooms are very basic but clean. Same counts for the bathroom. To get there is about Rs. 150, happy bargaining with the tuk-tuk drivers!
