Fantastic property. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Food was wonderful. Swimming pool was amazing.

Location was a little challenging - quite hard to find. There are four bedrooms and only three bathrooms (rather than the four which were advertised) so some of the party need to be prepared to share a bathroom. That being said - the property has been built to a very high standard and is in a beautiful setting.

We loved our stay there and would definitely recommend!

“A Dream Stay”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Our stay at Sea Heart House was 5* from the minute we arrived.

The house is set on a hilltop tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Unawatuna and Galle but close enough if you want to venture out. The design of the house epitomizes 'outdoor/indoor living' with a great array of living areas to relax in and look out at the most spectactular view. The bedrooms are all fantastic sizes with beautifully designed bathrooms and the garden and pool are excellent.

Did I mention the view????!!!!!! Lake Koggola has to be one of the most tranquil places. If you fancy venturing on to it, Pethum, the amazing chef/manager will organize for you to jum on a boat at the bottom of the garden and you can go and visit the stunning islands scattered around. We visited a family on their own cinnamon island, there is an island with a beautiful temple and also a herb and natural remedy garden.

The food cooked by Pethum and his right-hand man never failed to disappoint. The breakfasts were breakfasts of kings, the Sri Lankan dishes the prepared were full of flavor and stunning and each day, they produced something different and special.

Our children are aged 6 and 4 and this property was perfect for them. Places to explore and a lovely swimming pool. However, due to its design, there are a few steps and ledges so if you have younger children, you will need to be really careful.

The staff who looked after us and the property worked so hard and were warm, friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.

We will look back on our holiday at Seaheart with the best memories and cannot wait to return soon.

Dear Ccam. Oh my goodness. When we all first read your review we could not believe our eyes!! The staff could not stop smiling!
Apologies for not replying till now.
We are so appreciative and very happy that you had an incredible time!
Yes i also love going up to the house to get away from the busy, noisy main road.
Our Yoga pavilion and Traditional Sri Lankan Kitchen for cooking classes are now up and running and we are currently making a proper pathway down to the Lake with the help of some naturalists.
We hope that you can join us again in the future!

Warm wishes

“A very comfortable lakeside villa with views across Koggala Lake.”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The villa is spacious and very well appointed. The house manager and chef, Pethun, was very helpful and an excellent chef. I recommend his prawn dishes but he really came into his own when my mother (in her late 70s) had a possible cardiac event arranging an immediate visit from a houseman at the Galle hospital and then helping us navigate our way round the hospital in Galle.

We stayed 10 nights and saw most of the local sights. The monsoon was in full swing in late July and this meant that lounging round the pool was rarely an option but when the sun is out it is a beautiful spot. It is very private and a much better option than the rather impersonal 5 star hotels on the beach side of the lake.

“Luxury on the lake...”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a two week holiday in Sri Lanka - we stayed in a number of places in the Galle area and luckily Sea Heart House was one of those. It is a beautiful, modern villa perched on the shores of Koggala Lake. Emma, Petchum and the team are very professional and friendly.

We have rented lots of holiday properties over the years and it's fair to say this is by far the most stunning. It's like a boutique hotel all to yourselves - the pool and the views are stunning. It is quite remote so definitely a place for chilling and relaxing. The home cooked food was very good and Petchum was very obliging in booking any activities - I would recommend a visit to the local tea plantation and a boat trip around the lake, they even pick you up at the house! So if staying in the Galle area, treat yourselves to a few day's luxury at Sea Heart House...
