Not exactly Elite!

Considering this property is only about 14 years old, it is not wearing well and a lot of simple things need doing to bring it up to an elite standard. Dirty tiles, some with green algae on around pool. Dirty large pots outside with half dead woody shrubs in them. Doors and locks that don't work. Brasswork tarnished. Roof tiles almost all broken. Jagged grouting on pool floor causing cut foot. Questionable hygiene factors in kitchen, several of us had upset stomachs. Staff were all attentive and helpful but we thought the chef had very limited abilities. Apart from those issues, lovely sandy beach and great weather. Would not book this again

We very much enjoyed our stay here. It was not quite as isolated as some of the reviews imply. Having said that we were happy to rely completely on the skills of the chef at the villa. If you want to go out and eat, I am not sure what the options are.The food at the villa was great and we were very happy with the staff. They did everything they could to help us, but appeared to be hampered in resolving some maintenance issues because they needed support from the owner’s agent in Colombo. However, we understand they were unable to get a response from him and, despite repeated efforts, we could not get a response from him either. For example,A number of doors could not be fully bolted, a bathroom sink was blocked, not all of the lights and ceiling fan controls were working, it would have been good to have bedside tables with a lamp and some of the towels were a little stained. A pity, when it is such a great location and fundamentally a great holiday villa. If these issues were resolved, I would definitely give this villa a higher rating.

Amazing Days

The house is amazing, the staff is super friendly and helpful, Location is wonderful, super calm, lots of fun! Love it! ;) The food was also great. The house is always open, so expect some insects inside.. beds are protected with nets.

Wonderful villa, wonderful staff, great pool, and superb beach

Cant raise the villa and staff highly enough. Very attentive when needed and fixed several trips for us. The villa itself was excellent and a great venue for 4 adults with 5 children.

Paradise Road

Cannot praise this location enough, the staff excellent, the atmosphere excellent, the holiday excellent. This was an extended holiday to celebrate my wife's birthday with our extended family, seven in all. The property is isolated, to say the least, and our driver had difficulty in finding it, but we were made welcome by the staff right from the start. The staff; always there but never intrusive, the food restaurant standard. We went with Tiki Lanka Tours and our tours to the nearby reserved were pre booked but the same service could have been obtained from the property. A magical time, totally restful, fun and comfortable. Did I speak about the staff?

Ocean's Edge sits in seclusion on the fringe of the village of Kahandamodera, 16km east of Tangalle. Kahandamodera is scattered with simple homes encircled by kitchen gardens whose inhabitants make their living from fishing and farming. Access to the property is well off the main road through the narrow lanes of this rural region, passing paddy fields and small lotus-strewn lakes that see visitations from many birds. The beach to the front of Ocean's Edge is often visited by marine turtles and extends to the east across a rocky outcrop towards Kalametiya wetlands and the barren red earth of Ussangoda. To the west it continues towards Tangalle where a small selection of restaurants, banks, pharmacies and supermarkets can all be found.

Beachfront private villa with spectacular views

Sensationally situated on Sri Lanka's southern coast, Ocean's Edge offers a true taste of exotic seclusion. With four spacious bedrooms boasting spectacular views, this colonially-inspired villa also features comfortably furnished wraparound verandas; a fully-equipped kitchen and an air conditioned TV Room.

In the extensive, tropical, bird-filled garden beyond sits a gorgeous swimming pool that's the perfect place to cool off in the heat of the day, whilst opportunities for exploratory walks along the near-deserted beach are endless. Fully-staffed, Ocean's Edge is c and perfectly suited for families, groups and nature lovers looking to completely relax and unwind.

Private, peaceful and picturesque, Ocean's Edge is a spectacular property which, as its name suggests, lies within a whisper of the soulful sea on Sri Lanka's dramatic southern coastline.

Situated in an extensive 23-acre garden filled with swaying coconut palms and alive with dancing parrots, waltzing butterflies and sky-diving kingfishers, the garden is a paradise for escapists. With no other neighbours in view, the location is entirely private and even a walk along the shell-scattered, wave-sloshed beach at sunset is unlikely to result in anybody interrupting the peace.

Ocean's Edge is a two-storey property with a pair of staircases that lead up from the hallway and the kitchen to spacious ensuite bedrooms and a wraparound balcony furnished with cushioned seating for admiring the views. The ground floor living space comprises an air conditioned TV Room and furnished hallway that connects a pair of deep verandas at the front and back of the property, looking either towards the sea or over the swimming pool.

A delightful jade-green swimming pool to the rear of the property reflects the natural surroundings as a tree protrudes from the middle of its T-shaped design. Timber decking scattered with sunbeds surround the pool whilst a deep veranda is perfectly situated for relaxed and informal daytime dining.

Although Ocean's Edge is only six years old, its elegant architecture and antique furnishings tell a different tale. Soaring ceilings, gentle archways and deep verandas that wrap around the house on two levels mimic the beautiful designs of the Dutch colonialists and allow gentle breezes to infiltrate and cool the interiors. The house offers a plethora of living and dining areas that are beautifully positioned for admiring the views.

With its four beautifully spacious ensuite bedrooms: two doubles, a twin and a single ground floor room with a baby cot, Ocean's Edge is particularly suitable for families with younger children. The house is looked after by a welcoming staff team who tend to your every need with traditional Sri Lankan hospitality, whilst trips to nearby Tangalle, national parks, bird-filled wetlands and cultural sights can all be arranged with ease.
