The villa

Dear Taruna , thanks for the review I'll take your views into consideration We repaired already the leaks , the electric sockets and the A/C in the rooms The villa is a reconstruction of a 300 years old Dutch house and we tried to keep the "old soul " of the house , sorry if that gave you the impression to be dated All info concerning the provided services was send to the travel agent at the moment they booked the villa for your stay Nice that you enjoyed the chef's cooking

Superb

15 of us went there for 5 days for a friend's 40th. We fell in love with the place instantly. The property, the service, the food, the beach, the pool and the gardens were all incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat. Been to many places in Asia, this is one of my favorites!

Paradise

the delicious food and could not actually think of food! The children were kept There are not enough words to explain how great this villa is. The people who work there make it their mission to make your stay as wonderful as they can. Everything is tailored just for you. There were 18 of us travelling from Australia, Hong Kong and U.K and the ages ranges were 70 - 3 years. The staff helped with taking a sick child to the doctors and making sure everything was ok. Playing with children whilst the pool was being cleaned (was very early in the morning i might add). The food was the best on the island and if i had to moan about anything it would be that the villa needs a sample menu as when asked what we would like for dinner, lunch or breakfast it was normally after we had stuffed our faces with happy with the wide range of food too from spag bol to chicken goujons to everything inbetween. The rooms were clean and any extra bedding or towels that were asked for were quickly delivered. The security guards were discreet and reassuring that every time we went on to the public beach (which was quiet) we were watched for safety reasons. Its true you can't swim in the sea it is too rough but a walk and a paddle is fine. The unawattuna beach a short tuk tuk ride away is fabulous for food, shops and cocktails! I am not a lover of any animals whilst on holiday and try to avoid them if i can, but the villa dog is an exception! My 13 yr old daughter and her friend went on to the beach and the dog followed, whenever anyone approached the dog would go and sit next to the girls and "protect" them as people would walk the opposite direction. It was very reassuring. I could babble on with all the things that are so great with this place (including a phone call from the owner to check you're having a good time and everything was ok). But the truth is If you want a fabulous holiday where you are pampered and spolit - this is the place!

Fabulous

It was my first trip to Sri Lanka, and 15 of my family and friends (ages 2 - 74) joined me for a week long birthday celebration. We flew in from 8 cities around the world and were greeted by this fabulous beach villa. Wim the owner was very prompt and helpful all along the way with pre arrival information, planning and logistics. Once we got there the location and layout of the property exceeded expectations - slightly rustic and you couldn't be closer to the ocean! The staff were very good and yet un-intrusive, they looked after our every need so well, especially the chef Ishanti and the helper Taru. The food at the villa was excellent and it gave us the much needed flexibility on whether we ate out or in each day. There are security guards on the premises as well, and we felt very safe throughout our 9 day stay. The pool was lovely too (note, it is extremely slippery around the edges so do take extra care) and the property affords enough space to spread yourselves out. Rooms are comfortable and cleaned every day. We experienced a few leaks during our stay due to heavy rains but the staff fixed those immediately and it was fine. Transport is easy to access, we took tuk tuk's and local buses from just outside the villa on a couple of occasions, and made plenty of use of the cars and drivers that the Villa manager organised for us, as we were a large group (incl airport pick up). Galle, Hikkadua, Unawatuna, are all within easy reach. We had a week full of joy and hope you do too!

Description

Ideal for large groups and families

The beach villa - for rent - in Sri Lanka - at the south coast near Galle - has direct access to a deserted sandy beach.
The villa is a reconstruction of a 300 years old Dutch house.

Unique cuisine concept
All food and drinks can be bought at the market, local shop or supermarket and all meals are prepared and served by the staff.
We can do the shopping and for this, we charge only a small delivery cost.

Private driver
All kinds of excursions are possible. You can make arrangements about this such as discovering this tropical island in a private car with English-speaking driver - who is also your guide.

The beauty of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is characterized by its breathtakingly beautiful nature with tropical forests, mountains, waterfalls, nature reserves, large inland lakes, unspoiled beaches, palms, tea plantations, elephants, the inconceivable blue colour and the turbulent surf of the Indian Ocean and an extremely friendly population.

Tropical Climate
The southern coast belt is a lovely place to stay. From November till April the ocean becomes calm, the sky blue and in evening time wonderful sunsets. May, June and July are the hottest months of the year with most in the evening tropical rains what is then very refreshing.
