We enjoyed a peaeful stay in the ground floor apartment at horse shoe bay house. The space was ample for me and my 16yr old niece to share. Having a little outdoor space was great, having a washing line or drying rack would have been very handy! We felt safe and enjoyed the smily neighborhood.

Clean, comfortable and close to both Hiriketiya and Dickwella. Thumbs up!

Hiriketiya is a great beach. Especially for beginner surfers. Horseshoe Bay 1 is a 10 minute uphill walk from the beach. It was a lovely stay. Martin's other property, The BeachHouse (couldn't find it on AirBnb) is right on the beach and very pretty with a great restaurant. Horseshoe Bay however was quite cramped with no space in the room apart from the bed and our luggage. It does offer 1.5 bath, but that's essentially one bathroom in the master bedroom and an open shower in the garden area. (The garden is quite small though. Can only accommodate 4 people.) Pasindu, the caretaker, was quite helpful. We did have some trouble with the Wi-Fi but that was resolved on the second day. They do offer a mini-fridge and a kettle. Which was nice. Overall a good stay. You should try it out if you're out on a budget.

Very small room for a family in S1. The drawing and reality not correlate.
