Why so darn good? "The Icebear is the Sri Lankan dream digs. It is peaceful, private, and on the beach. The charm of this spot glows day and night. With Ayuverdic massage on-site, it's impossible not to relax at the Icebear."
Location: "The guest house is on Sri Lanka's surfing coast in a beach village. You can walk right of the gate to the beach."
Rooms: "There is a walled in area that feels very safe, with a garden and hammocks. Each of the three or four rooms is off the main area, and the rooms are really nice - although not big. "
Food: "Serves a really good breakfast!"
Vibe: "I love the fact that the owner exists! He has a thing for bears with sunglasses - they're all over the place. I arrived at 1am and the owner sent a driver to pick me up at airport, and made sure everything was ready."
