If the Guest wishes to cancel a confirmed booking, written notice of cancellation must be sent to the manager. All cancellation notices received by the manager will be acknowledged in writing. It is strongly recommended that the Guest and all members of the Guest's party purchase trip cancellation insurance.
Cancellation of a booking includes but is not limited to:
* Cancellation of one or more days of a booking.
* An amendment of a booking so that none of the dates of the booking once amended fall within the same dates that originally constituted the booking.
* Failure of all Guests to provide the required documentation on arrival (eg. Passports or suitable identification).
* Attempt by the Guest, their party or visitors to hold an event at the Property in breach of these Terms and Conditions or breach of any rules applicable to the Guests chosen Property.
In the event that the Guest cancels a confirmed booking, the following cancellation fees will generally apply:
* 20% of the total rental amount will be forfeited if the cancellation is made more than 60 days before the start of the rental period.
* 50% of the total rental amount will be forfeited if the cancellation is made between 30 and 60 days before the start of the rental period.
* 100% of the total rental amount will be forfeited if the cancellation is made between 1 and 29 days before the start of the rental period.
The applicable amount will be deducted from the deposit and moneys paid, and the manager will refund any remaining balance to the Guest.
Please note that these cancellation terms apply for regular booking periods. Special cancellation terms may apply for peak/high seasons and will be stated in the Property description, booking confirmation or reservation voucher. If the information in any of these is inconsistent, the most recently issued terms will prevail.
When the Guest makes a booking request, the Guest must make the appropriate deposit payment to EH within 5 working days of availability confirmation. If the required deposit payment is not received within the 5 working day period, EH reserves the right to void the Guest’s booking request. The following deposit payment applicable to most villas (see individual villa terms for full details) must be received by EH:

For rentals beginning more than 75 days after the date of the booking request – a deposit of 20% of the total rental amount is payable For rentals beginning 75 days or less after the date of the booking request – the total rental amount is payable as a deposit

Majestic home with pool encircled with tropical gardens
Previously the home of celebrated American socialite, writer and interior designer Charles Hulse, Pooja Kanda sits majestically atop a small rise encircled by greenery, tropical flowers and hardwood trees. Located just inland from Koggala, Hulse personally designed the four bedroom house and gardens himself and lived here enjoying its peace and tranquillity for many years before moving to Galle.
The house is accessed by a private driveway that eventually creeps up to the summit of the hill, hiding it from anyone's view. A wide pillared verandah leads from the garden through tall arched doors to a series of sitting and dining rooms decorated with Dutch period furniture and antiques as well as a cosy TV room. On the first floor there are three en-suite bedrooms that open onto a shared wrap-around balcony which overlooks the garden.
The fourth bedroom is annexed from the main house while a back verandah leads to a small green swimming pool built into the side of the hill. Overlooked by verdant jungle where birds and monkeys can often be spotted between the trees, it is a particularly peaceful place to sit during the day. There are many other intimate spots for contemplation; a bridge from the first floor of the house leads to a hidden rock terrace from where you can quietly ponder the view as you overlook the pool and tropical garden.
The house is fully staffed with a steward and an experienced chef, while a nanny can also be arranged for babysitting on request. While the house offers many quiet places to sit, read and relax, the beaches of the southern region are only a short drive away. Other attractions in the Koggala area include the lagoon, the Martin Wickeramasinghe Museum, a turtle hatchery, spice gardens and a tea factory. Galle and its historic Fort are only a 20 minute drive away.
