“Perfect - book it!”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Wonderful in every way. I highly recommend this haven. Beautiful garden. Wonderful villa. Great location. Fantastic view across the lake, so serene and peaceful. Really great food. Beach is near by and our host was a brilliant guide. We took a boat ride on the lake and stopped at various locations. Also nearby is the sea turtle hatchery where we saw beautiful turtles including many cute baby turtles. Our host could not be more accommodating, nothing too much trouble. Book it! You won't be disappointed.

“Very relaxed and fully recharged stay in this green paradise”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

me and my friends stayed here for 3 days. Amazing quietness here outside the hectic beach road, but still only a few minutes away from the beach. We had every day their good breakfast by the pool and also the served lunches and dinners were tasty. So easy, almost like living in a fully serviced hotel as the staff lives in a house nearby. The owner was so kind and took us to the beaches and Galle with his minivan. The house itself is almost brand new, so no complaints. In the mornings we did yoga in the garden and listened the sounds of the jungle. Many monkeys living also nearby:) I can warmly recommend this place for your perfect holiday in southern Sri lanka.

“Away from it all, but close to it all!”
Reviewed January 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

For a simple, tranquil, away from it all break in SW Sri Lanka, this is the place. Here is a 4 bedroom bungalow, newly opened, in a large, well-tended, newly established garden with its own wonderfully sited swimming pool overlooking Lake Koggala where the birdlife is varied and colourful, and pretty monkeys perform acrobatics in the trees and occasionally scamper noisily over the roof - but never come indoors. There are no other houses in sight although the islands in the lake do appear to shield the odd grand residence.
The owner, who has recently returned to Sri Lanka fom 9 years in the UK, could not be more charming or obliging, whether it be in organizing a boat trip on the lake, finding out about train times or even driving us to and from a nearby hotel for dinner. He always went the extra mile, and then a bit more! His staff are very friendly.
The house has 4 comfortable double beds (with excellent linen) and is airconditioned with ceiling fans. Two of the three shower-rooms are modern and simply but practically fitted, the third one is adequate but not to the same standard. The kitchen area is intended for very simple self-catering and the crockery etc reflects this. The fridge needs replacing. Meals are generally prepared for guests on site and served at the dining table or outside under one of the verandahs or in a romantic round wooden open-sided “pavilion” by the lake.
There is a huge flat screen television.
Although the property is so quiet and secluded, it is within easy reach by car or tuk tuk of the popular and stunning coastline with its beaches and hotels. Galle Fort is not far. For four adults and two small children, this provided an ideal place to stay which we would definitely recommend and is value for money.
