“The most relaxing vacation ever!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

After spending the last eight months in Kuwait (not exactly a garden location!), my wife and I spent one of the most relaxing weeks of our life at this villa. The villa, pool and grounds are kept meticulously clean. The meals were cooked and served to order. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. We really felt like we were at home. The sound of the breaking surf was a constant reminder that we were in an idyllic location. Our only visitor while we were there was a sea turtle who came up the beach to lay her eggs (which the staff moved to prevent anyone stealing them - very eco conscious). We will be back again!

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
Overall condition of the property Bedding & mattresses

Liked best: My own private villa on the beach.
Liked least: Surf was a little too strong for swimming.

Thank you for your kind review:

We arevery glad you enjoyed your stay so much....

We always care very much for the turtles that come to "our" beach to lay their eggs. We released after your stay from that nest 62 hatchlings ( from a green turtle mama) - that was really a great feeling to see the baby turtles disappear into the sea...

Looking to have you back soon !!

“Very nice villa with excellent staff!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The villa is very well maintained with 4 spacious bedrooms and a small bungalow in the garden (which we did not use). It is beautifully decorated with a lot of nice details.
Everything is kept very clean every day by the in-house staff.

There are so many places in the villa where you can enjoy your stay and relax. An upstairs terrace with view over the ocean, the downstairs deck where you will have your dinner, and very big pool with a nice pool area with a gazebo.

There is a lot of wild animals in the area, so you might experience monkeys in the nearby tree's while having your breakfast which is a very nice and true Sri Lanka experience.
Unfortunately Sri Lanka is also home to thousands of flying insects which you will notice first hand. But if you bring repellent and maybe not turn on all the lights outside at night, you will be okay.
The location is very isolated in picturesque surroundings, but you will feel perfectly safe at night!

The absolutely best thing with the villa is the excellent staff. They go out of their way to make you feel good. You can choose from a menu of primarily local dishes, and if you are lucky the local fisherman might stop by in the morning with fresh lobsters to choose from for tonights dinner. Make sure that you try all the curries.

We stayed two families in the villa for one week. The only downside is maybe if you bring children below the age of 2 since there is a lot of stairs, a coi pond, a pool etc. So you will have to watch them all the time. You can still have the perfect vacation, you just need to be prepared for that.

The location on the south coast is ideal and the whether is nice most of the year and there a several national parks to visit. There is a book in the villa with suggested excursions and the house staff will help you arrange everything and make sure you get a good deal.

If you are traveling via Dubai, consider using flydubai which goes to Mattala airport which is just one and a half hour from the villa.

One last advice. Consider bringing wine and liquor from home or from the airport. It can be a little difficult to find in the area and it is very expensive.
