delightful villa

The front was not attrative but once we opened the door the villa cheers every one up after an 8 hours drive from Kandy ! The dining table was all set up ready to have dinner. The first impression was so important Although there are some minor issue but we feel at peace and happy to stay on this main street , Light House Street 's villa This villa eventually became the head quarter of after party hang out It was a perfect set up couple of nights we have 25 people in , no one wanted to leave they all enjoying themselves so much It was good to see I stayed behind at my master suites which is quite soundproof from the party's noise. The manager also managed to book us great massages , that was a real treat !

Superb villa in the heart of Galle Fort

We had an extended family stay for 3 nights and didn't want to leave! We had 8 people. There are two day beds in a small room which is like the foyer to the main bedroom and this was very suitable for 2 young kids. You can also sleep an extra kid in the TV room on a day bed, but there is a pressure pump in the ceiling of this room that's a bit noisy for sleeping. We were looked after by two young men, both called Ajeeth, both very helpful and the food was very nice! Had a huge seafood bbq on arrival which was delicious. Location excellent, close to everything in the Fort. The house is incredible, the restoration is superb, with soaring ceilings, tasteful period furnishings, privacy and great ventilation and fans. Air con and fans in bedrooms, all have a nice ensuite. Just perfect for a large family group. I'll be back.

Right in the heart of Galle Fort!

If you are looking for a villa right in the heart of the action then this is it. We stayed 2 nights and loved every minute. The team of two staff and villa manager made us feel extremely welcomed from the moment we arrived. The villa is a wonderful 3 bedroom villa, all bedrooms come with ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning. Breakfast is included daily and is a traditional Sri Lankan meal however the staff can also purchase other ingredients if you prefer a cooked breakfast with eggs, toast and cereals. They can also cook lunch and dinner and a menu is provided to help you choose but the team is also flexible and can cater to dietary requirements if needed. If you are looking for a villa in Galle then I highly recommend this property. Plus it's great value for money! Thank you to the team for looking after us... we will be back!

Private Oasis

The perfect home base for exploring Galle: we loved coming home to No. 39 after roaming the lanes of Galle Fort each day. The villa looks unremarkable from the outside, but as soon as you walk through the door you are greeted with high ceilings, Sri Lankan art and comfortable furniture and a lovely courtyard. The villa is remarkably spacious and very, very private. Ajit, the villa's live in attendant, makes a delicious breakfast and really cares for his guests. He'd turn on the A/C in the bedrooms in the afternoon, before we'd come home, so they were the perfect temperature for us. He also lit tea candles and keeps the property in immaculate condition. The 3 bedrooms were incredibly comfortable, amazing water pressure, super fast Internet, great overall energy throughout the property. Full marks Ajit, thank you for looking after us!

Villa No. 39 occupies pride of place in Galle's historic 17th century UNESCO-certified colonial fort on Sri Lanka's south-western coast. The villa is set about 200 metres from the town's famous international test cricket stadium. The fort itself dates back over 400 years and a walk along its ramparts reveals the fascinating hybrid architecture of three colonial eras - Dutch abodes, British-era monuments, ochre-hued spice warehouses and interesting museums showcasing the fort's rich history. There are many restaurants and cafes within the fort and a selection of mesmerising beaches, tranquil lagoons and historic temples within the 15 kilometres area.

Cancellation Policy

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 Guest's 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.

Payment Terms

When the Guest makes a booking request, the Guest must make the appropriate deposit payment to the manager within 5 working days of availability confirmation. The following deposit payment must be received by the manager.

For rentals beginning more than 60 days after the date of the booking request - a deposit of 50% of the total rental amount is payable.

For rentals beginning 60 days or less after the date of the booking request - the total rental amount is payable as a deposit.

If the required deposit payment is not received within the 5 working day period, the manager reserves the right to void the Guest's booking request.

Where a 50% deposit applies to the booking, the Guest must pay the remaining 50% balance not less than 60 days before the scheduled arrival date.

All payments must be made in US Dollars, unless otherwise agreed with the manager, and must be made in accordance with the manager's payment instructions as set out in the Guest's booking confirmation.

If payments are not made on or before the due dates as required herein, the Owner or the Owner's Representative may cancel the booking, in which case this Rental Contract will be thereby terminated without any further notice required. Cancellation charges may apply as detailed below.

Security Deposit:
A security deposit may be payable directly to the Owner or Owner's Representative immediately upon arrival at the Property. However the Owner has the right to impose different requirements on a case by case basis. Access to the Property may be refused if security deposit is not paid in full. When the security deposit is required to be paid in cash, or when a non-standard security deposit applies, the manager will inform the Guest in advance of the amount payable and any other conditions.

The security deposit will normally be refunded at the end of the rental period, after deducting: all additional expenses incurred on the Guest's behalf (e.g. additional charges for goods, services and staff which have not been directly paid by the Guest, and telephone and internet charges, if applicable) and the cost of replacement or repair for any loss or damage to the Property or its surrounds or contents caused during the Rental Period. If this cost cannot be reasonably determined prior to the Guest's departure, the Owner or the Owner's Representative is entitled to withhold a reasonable estimate from the Guest's security deposit, and will return any balance to the Guest as soon as possible after the actual cost has been determined.
