They have two kinds of accommodation options - 1) rooms within the main house - single , double and triple rooms with attached or close by bathrooms 2) two lovely lovely chalets outside the main house but within the property walls. The rooms... More

Lovely self contained buildings with everything needed for a short or long stay. Owner and staff did everything possible to help from ordering tuk tuks to walking my husband down the road to show him a great take away for our evening meal. The best string hoppers for breakfast. Loved the outdoor shower and the lovely little frog in the... More

I was at Villa Shade to meet a group arriving from France for an 8-day trek in Sri Lanka. It is clean, quiet, confortable and the surroundings are very nice. The owners were very welcoming. I enjoyed my short stay there.

We discovered Villa Shade hidden away in a luxurious and beautiful garden. The hosts and the staff were really kind, welcoming and always ready to help with any requests (we wanted to rent a bike and the owner made it happen). They really try their best to make you feel at home. We were welcomed with two glasses of fresh... More

Villa Shade was the best value place we stayed on our trip. The rooms are arranged in private detached buildings, so you have privacy. They are spacious and with beautiful bathrooms with really stylish features. The gardens are lovely, and each room has a little patio seating area for relaxing in. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed, really more... More
