Skinny Beach House is found in Dalawella with direct access to the beach out front to its sandy shores and cool water.

The bedrooms are adjoined to en-suite bathrooms that are mosaic-tiled, very tropical, and with amenities such as showers, vanities, and organic toiletries.
At Skinny Beach House, what stands out is the structure which is a narrow building housing two bedrooms, living and dining space, and an outdoor yard with plunge pool. With everything you could possibly need in this limited space, you know there has been an optimum utilisation of space. The plunge pool is great for splashing around and cooling off, even if you want to just float around. You can always head to down to the sandy beach and swim in the safe water or indulge in a water sport like snorkelling. There are beach chairs for you to relax and sunbathe on as well!
The living area is found on the ground level overlooking the beach and the plunge pool. Sourced from locally-produced natural materials, the furniture found in the living area is comfortable, well-appointed, and elegant.

Sashi & Praboth, We cannot thank you enough for making our time here so enjoyable and memorable. Thank you for the amazing food you have prepared the dinner you made was one of the best meals we have ever had. Thank you to Sudda and Cecilia for organising our stay and looking after us this has been such a highlight and we cannot wait to come back one day!
The location is unrivalled. A perfect skinny strip on one of the country's best beaches. The staff were incredible throughout, from home-cooked meals to Christmas decorating while we were out (a really special touch). The downfalls are minor; window seals are non-existent (presumably due to wood warp in the summer heat) giving easy access to some bugs and road noise, and the deck's wood is rotted/weakened in areas. It was expensive per night given the time of year, but for what we got, it was worth it. We truly had one of our best visits to Sri Lanka (of at least 10) yet, and that's thanks to Skinny Beach House.
Incredible beach house on Dalawella beach! The house is beautifully designed with multiple levels; when you sit at the breakfast table it feels as though the sea is swirling right outside. High ceilings means the house stays cool as the breeze from the sea comes through. From the outside deck the beach is literally at your feet! Soft sand and beautiful clear water. As the beach is away from the main tourist town of Unawatuna, it's much quieter with less tourists - it feels more private. There are only a few restaurants here, though we preferred to make our own lunch omelettes in the house. Bedrooms and living room are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bed is perfectly soft, we slept so well! Hot water showers that are spacious, and a balcony on the main bedroom overlooking the sea. There's a small plunge pool outside, perfect for a dip after swimming in the sea or lying in the sun. Breakfast is excellent. We enjoyed the Sri Lankan breakfast of egg hoppers, string hoppers, dhal, curry and fresh fruits. Good coffee too. Definitely recommend trying it! The house is just a tuk tuk ride away from the lovely Galle town, Unawatuna which has more restaurants and bars, and Weligama for good surfing and a different beach scene. Don't miss this beach house!
