“An excellently appointed and spacious villa close to historic Galle.”
Reviewed 28 December 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The villa is a ten minute tuk-tuk from Galle and a five minute tuk-tuk from the beach. Excellently appointed throughout, it offers both rooms of privacy and large communal areas. Also, a welcoming pool in the attractive and spacious garden. We particularly enjoyed the local cuisine, the trips to Galle with its fort, shopping and other delights, and our bicycling trips up and down wooded slopes and through the paddy fields. Also, a sort of cricket match in the garden! Excellently looked after by the attentive staff, we had a most relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Date of stay: August 2018

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review.
I assume you challenged the staff to a cricket match and am intrigued to know who won as they maintain they have an unbeaten record!
Please come back soon.

“Hidden gem ”
Reviewed 23 December 2018 for a stay in April 2018

I was lucky enough to stay at the Boundary house. The term ‘hidden gem’ is over used, but not in this case. The owners have done a remarkable job putting their style into this lovely house, situated perfectly off a peaceful paddy field. You can acclimatise to the Sri Lankan countryside in a luxury setting. The pictures give you a taste of the houses character, in person it will wow you. The attention to detail and aesthetics are superb. The high quality rooms and facilities add to a comfortable luxury stay which can be adapted to a fun family gathering. The service and welcome could rival the highest end of hotels! All in all, throughly recommended and a real treat.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I also hesitate to use 'hidden gem' but agree its hard not to in this case. For sure the Boundary House is 'off the beaten track' so in that respect it is 'hidden' and I completely agree with all else that you say so the word 'gem' is also fitting.
Thank you for coming to stay and please come again.
Best regards

“Outstanding luxury stay”
Reviewed 21 December 2018 for a stay in December 2018

We had a wonderful week at the Boundary House, which is planned to perfection and offers unbeatable comfort and style. Very tranquil setting among the paddy fields and the staff maintain the property to the highest standards. All meals were excellent and when not relaxing by the pool there is plenty to do within 20 mins, including visiting Galle, the tea plantation and cinnamon farm, releasing turtles into the sea and walking in the beautiful landscape from the property. The manager Sunagra attended to our every need and our thanks go to him and his excellent team for looking after us so well!

“An oasis of calm ...”
Reviewed 5 December 2018 for a stay in November 2018

We loved the Boundary House. Set on a shaded island amid paddy fields, it combines traditional architecture with modern amenities (comfortable beds, air conditioning, wifi, non-chlorinated pool) to create a perfect hideaway. Lounging on the terrace or by the pool, we watched the farmers at work, marvelled at the extraordinary birdlife, squawked back at the peacocks or just lost ourselves in our thoughts. A 10 minutes’ ride by tuktuk took us to the beach or 20 minutes to Galle. The staff were lovely. They took care of everything, with constant but discrete attention. Suranga, the manager, helped us with excursions and was determined to make our stay as perfect as possible. The chef was excellent and was delighted to lead a cookery class to demonstrate his local dishes. If you’re looking for an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle, you will find it here.

Dear Anthony
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad you found the 'oasis of calm' - its magical isn't it. I have visited many villas in SL over the years and agree that the setting and architecture of the Boundary House really allow one to rest and relax. Blissful.
I hope that you'll be back soon and in the meantime are enjoying a wicked SL curry cooked by your fair hand at home.
Best regards
Jack

“How wonderful”
Reviewed 2 December 2018 for a stay in November 2018

Suzanne and I were lucky enough to stay at the Boundary House in November. It is a wonderful place; extremely comfortable bedrooms with superb ensuites (complete with the best toiletries we had ever come across); amazing location affording privacy, peace and quiet; attentive staff who provide everything you could wish for and monkeys in the trees.

We very much hope to be lucky enough to return in the future!
