We were so happy to have found Raf & Harold's beautiful villa during our stay in Sri Lanka. The villa is decorated with immaculate taste, such attention to detail, with expansive lush grounds and a nice pool. There are only 3 bungalows, meaning you have privacy and can really relax. It is a short tuk-tuk ride from stunning beaches and...

Villa Don Hendrick is an exceptional B&B and stands out from all the typical beach properties. It is not on the beach, but this doesn't matter, as the sea has such strong current, that one cannot get in anyways. Instead, it offers privacy, tranquility and stupedous hospitality. Raf and Harold are amazing hosts who offer personalised care to their guests....

Dear Jannette and Steven, The beaches Down South are stunning ... but the ocean can be in some periods of the year very rough. Therefor we choose to live a bit inland surrounded by paddy fields and nature. For our guests it is a joy to sit relaxed near the pool or on their veranda and watch the wildlife on...

But I'll try.....! Our stay at Villa Don Hendrick was unforgettable! I felt so lucky to celebrate my 30th birthday here, Harold and Raf went above and beyond to make it so special and couldn't have hoped to spend it anywhere else. The setting is absolutely stunning, so tastefully designed and the service impeccable, it couldn't be more relaxing. Harold...

We had an amazing stay at Villa Don Hendrick. The photos really do not do it justice - our room was pristine and the decor throughout was chic and stylish (not forgetting the beautiful pool and grounds).

This place is an absolute gem. The design of the house belongs in an architectural digest. If only we could move in? 😳 Everything is perfect and well thought through. You can tell that Harold and Raf have designed a hotel that they would want to stay in. These two have high standards!! When you arrive it's like walking into...
