Loved this place!

Had a blissful 8 night stay in Skye House with two other families (6 adults and 6 children altogether). The house, layout and location was fantastic, with the kids loving the garden gate right onto the beach and the warm indian ocean! Nothing was too much trouble for Janeka and his hard working team! Samantha's authentic food was excellent and catered for all tastes. Janeka organised and recommended lots of excursions for us including, tea plantation, cinnamon experience, boat trip on Koggala lake, lunch out in Galle, dinner at the Fortress hotel, sunset cruise from Mirissa, elephant ride, bike trecking through paddy fields, picnic and snorkelling on Jungle beach and a particular high light for my 11 year old son was getting to drive Janeka's tuk tuk on several occasions! He even took us to his local village to join in the Sri Lankan New Year games and celebrations. The locals were extremely friendly and we felt safe where ever we went. It was lovely to get up to a beautifully prepared breakfast of fresh fruit, yoghurt, eggs, pancakes, Sri Lankan omelettes and hoppers! We had a most memorable time at Skye House and would be delighted to return one day. A big thank you to Janeka and his team xx

The family vacation perfected!

Skye House excels in each aspect of an ideal family vacation. The house and its decor offer equal parts luxury and comfort. The bedrooms are all spacious and en suite with the total number of beds meaning that a stay here is most suited to either multiple families or large ones. There are all the appropriate mod-cons for such a place and both indoor and outdoor activities are provided for in abundance. The pictures are evidence enough for the beauty of this beach-side villa. The beach itself goes as far as the eye can see though do make note of the season if beach lounging is a requirement for your stay. The villa is well-staffed, each member is extremely kind and helpful but also respect the privacy of their guests. Staff know the local area very well and can arrange a variety of trips, including trips to Galle wherein the original fort sits proudly against the sea. The staff are also more than happy to school you in a game of cricket. 24hr security dispels all crime-related concerns. The chef is adept in preparing not only tasty, fresh Sri Lankan food but can also accommodate a wide variety of cuisines, including more child-orientated food. He is happy for the guest to pick from a large menu but we found that letting him use his experience to select and prepare the best local ingredients was a way to ensure only the freshest food was on the table. He can also prepare gargantuan volumes of milkshakes for any sweet-toothed guests. I found no issues with my stay at Skye House and I anticipate that very few people ever would.

Ideal location and perfect for large group

We stayed at Skye for 2 nights and it was the perfect location to explore the Galle area (highlights incl. Dalawella beach, Galle Fort, Sea Turtle Sanctuary, Koggala beach). The set-up is beautiful and it's right on a secluded beach. Loved the support staff as they were very helpful and attended to our every need/request.

Ultimate Holiday Home - You will never want to leave!

We rented out this place to have our wedding. The wedding was meant to be a beach side garden party for 100 guests and the pictures I saw online seemed promising. Little did I know, the pictures do not do the place justice. The place is stunning with plenty of seating areas with grand bedrooms all with built in en-suites. Plenty of nice areas to chill. Our favourite spots in the house is in the pool or on the upper floor balcony overlooking the ocean. I regretted instantly not choosing to stay there longer. More than the place itself, what truly made our stay were the wonderful staff who not only tended to our every needs but also went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. Their in-house chef catered to our every needs and cooked whatever we felt like (At one point we wanted pasta and he happily obliged. It was delicious). But most of all to Janaka who is just the most wonderful host. Anything we needed was there in a heartbeat. Need a run to the ATM? He actually went and personally took me to one. Air-con broke down? He'll have a new one installed in the next couple of hours. Absolutely a delight to have a conversation with too. The wedding itself was stunning and felt like a fairytale. I can only pray that one day we will get the chance to come back. The only downside of our stay was how sad I was to leave. Highly recommend.

Wonderful family holiday

We had a brilliant time at the Skye House for the October half term. We were a family with three young children, 2 uncles and grandparents and we loved every minute. The house is a lovely colonial style villa on a pristine beach with plenty of space, a play ground and swings and a great games room. The garden is lovely for the children to run around and releasing the baby turtles at the sanctuary next door was great. Janaka the villa manager looked after us so well with his great team, they organised Tuk Tuks, transfers and excursions for us and Sam the Chef prepared delicious meals and gave us s cooking class. The house is well located between Galle and Welligama. We will definitely be back
