Stunning Villa on beautiful beach

We had a wonderful stay at Skye House. The staff were excellent and catered for our every need. The food was delicious and the villa was very clean. Architecturally the villa is beautiful and we'll furnished. We also had our wedding here and it was a great event space (we had 70 people) - with the large garden, palm trees for privacy and private access to beach (which was beautiful and not very busy). I would highly recommend this villa for a holiday or special occasion.

Magical villa with incredible staff

Skye villa is a beautiful house with a gorgeous swimming pool right on a stunning beach. The accommodation was ideal for our large family covering a huge age range. The staff, headed by Jakanka, were ever helpful, always smiling and wonderful with all of us, including 4 babies under 9 months. Samantha the chef provided an endless variety of asian dishes for ourselver as well as more traditional menus for our 8 grandchildren. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we couldn't have asked for a house more suited to us and in a more perfect setting. Eden Villas provided great support with drivers and making sure we were being well looked after.

First of all, I am really sorry for a late review. But I still feel that no review can do justice to the beauty of this place and the hospitality provided by those who are managing it. I undoubtedly can say that it was the best experience of my life and I can probably spend my lifetime here.This place is hidden definitely a gem in Galle. I am literally out of words to appreciate the property as well as the people who are managing the property, namely Daya, Janaka, Samantha and the guards. These people pampered me so much, that I literally cried before leaving this place. These people are "Genies" and follow "you name it and you get it" policy. Now a detailed review. We were welcomed in the most royal way, with people eagerly waiting for us with a tasty welcome drink and wet towels in their hand. Then we were made to do the property tour, which made me fall in love with the property.Travelled with a family of 7, the property offers everything you'd need in the stay for everyone. "Getting bored" is just impossible when you're living in a property that offers so much and which is managed by such gems. There are 2 rooms on the ground floor, and 2 rooms along with the kids room on the upper floor. There was no kid in our family, so we didn't require the kids room. The property offers a private beach which is just outstanding. We even got a beachside bon-fire done with cinnamon wood which was arranged by Janaka and Daya in no time and managed by the guards to ensure our safety. The private pool(3ft-8ft) is very impressive with a villa view and the garden view. There are a bunch of relaxing collapsible chairs which make it even more admirable. There's a recreation room with a Pool Table, a foosball table and Xbox along with a bunch of games. Like I said, this villa is a recreation hub, and this villa would seriously not let you leave. There's a fish pond with exotic fishes. Samantha was very kind and let us feed the fishes with breads and chapatis which was an exceptional and out of the world experience. The private garden is splendid and wonderfully managed. There was 2 hammocks and swings for relaxation. I could literally spend my entire day lying on those hammocks and listening to the sea breeze which was right next to it. The guards were very friendly. They even got us fresh coconut water by climbing the coconut trees in the property itself. Janaka has his own TukTuk and offered my father rides to go to the market with him. Chef Samantha can actually prepare anything you like. You name it, and you'll get it. He even tried to prepare Indian cuisine and I'd give him a complete 5/5 for his efforts and tasty food. The open kitchen idea is very cool and helps in a small chit chat while preparing food. Now, the rooms. Not only the master bedroom is huge, the other rooms are no less. The master bedroom, located on the first floor has a dazzling bathtub which is very clean and hygienic.The other rooms have showers and they offer Spice Island Toiletries which are very very luxurious. They have board games too so that at any point, you do not get bored There are 2 very big chillers to keep your drinks chilled. The drawing room and the sitting area was fabulous and very comfortable with a beautiful view and decorated by beautiful flowers. The dining area too was very royal with tip-top cutlery. All in all, this place is heaven with everything you'd require. A big shoutout to all the people who are managing this property. Daya, Janaka, Samantha and the guards. I have a lot of photos to share, but due to some technical reasons, I can't post it on tripadvisor. Can't wait to get back to this villa and have the time of my life. Not only me, my entire family enjoyed the stay. Highly recommended. If you are going to Galle and not staying at Skye Villa, you're missing something. Recommended for Certificate for Excellence.

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
