With the vibrant and colourful Dikwella market just around the corner and Wewurukannala Vihara, the location of the tallest Buddha statue in Sri Lanka, also in the heart of the town, if you ever feel the need to explore a little further afield you will find plenty on offer to do and experience; what’s more you can venture out safe in the knowledge that the sanctuary of the Boat House and its luxury beach front experience is never far away.Situated on the Tangalle road 45 minutes from the end of the Southern highway.
The villa can be reached from Colombo airport by car in under three hours. The Mattala Rajapaksa International airport is even closer, just a one hour forty-five minute drive away.
For the more romantic or adventurous a sea plane flies daily from Colombo to the nearby Mawalla Lagoon a 35-minute journey, and from there the Boat House is just a ten-minute car ride away

Luxury fully staffed holiday villa

Stunning fully staffed four bedroom beach front villa. Including butler, 2 housekeepers and 2 chefs who will prepare daily breakfast for you. Villa has the possibility of indoor and outdoor dining, BBQ and amazing infinity pool overlooking one of the best beaches on the South Coast.

As The Boat House was always intended to be family retreat as well as a villa to rent, it was crucial to us that it was both designed without compromise and built to give all the enjoyment, privacy and creature comforts of home. In brief, our vision was to craft a villa to provide guests with an unrivalled holiday experience in a magically exotic location imbued with a feeling of ‘home’.

Having come up with this impossible-sounding brief, we then decided the only smart option was to pass the buck and to make the small matter of making the vision a reality someone else’s problem. Luckily one of our closest friends, Fiona Miles, also happens to be a wonderfully talented interior designer. Better still she put sense aside and agreed to work with us and has somehow managed to expertly and luxuriously furnish The Boat House with a chic blend of the old and the new. Ignoring some of our frankly more insane ideas, yet always working to ensure the core of what we wanted was achieved, Fiona has created a home in which each living area boasts style, space and an unparalleled attention to detail.
The four bedrooms each have en suite bathrooms and all give stunning views of the sea and gently curving horseshoe bay whilst the downstairs bedroom also has access to a private courtyard.

At the risk of turning this page into some sort of bad infomercial, we also thank our lucky stars that we stumbled across Linden who has designed and had hand crafted the beautiful furniture and lights you see in our villa.

The combined effect of the location and superb styling of the house and grounds will leave you feeling relaxed and renewed and having recently been featured twice in the UK Sunday Times as a top ten summer /winter 2017 pick, we feel it is not only us that thinks this way.
