“Taste of Heaven”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was the ultimate holiday for our family. Everything from the very first email contact to the hugs goodbye, were a delight. The pictures are accurate, but can simply not show you just how perfect this little piece of paradise truly is.

Villa staff are absolute treasures - Susantha organised everything we could think to request, and more. Pushpa cooks like an angel - delicious mango curry/pumpkin curry/eggplant curry...OMG! Suranga was always alert to anything we might need in the evenings - jumping up the minute anything unusual happened i.e small blackouts and a tangle with a tiny snake that decided it wanted to live indoors. Always discrete.

The villa is very elegant and well equipped. Wifi/TV and a music system - The beds are super comfortable - mosquito netting (although we did not encounter many), fans and A/C. Linens and towels abundant. Pool is wonderfully clean and just the right temperature for swimming.

We spent the majority of our time in the Garden - there are lots of choices when it comes to picking your spot of the day - always a pretty view. We enjoyed our aperitif each evening, sitting on the steps to the beach, watching a brilliant sunset.

Voted by the family - Best Holiday Ever! Thanks Bart, it was just perfect.

“perfection”
Reviewed May 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a truly special holiday rental. We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every day. The position beside the sea, where your verdant palm filled garden rolls down to the Indian ocean is truly everyone's idea of tropical paradise. True there is quite a busy road out the back of the villa but it never bothered us. The roar of the waves crashing on the beach and the rustle of the wind in the coconut trees was the noise that filled our ears.The area is stunningly beautiful, the food in the many restaurants in Galle Fort delicious and the staff at the villa are both discrete and welcoming. Also loved the pool.
We are not even beach people, we have never been to asia before and we are quite cautious travellers. If I came to Sri Lanka again I would like to tour the country and see the big sites, but I would certainly return to Villa Golden to recharge my batteries and relax.
Now don't go telling everyone, in case i can't come back!!

“Paradise is right!”

Everything the owner states about this villa is 100% true. My family of four loved our two nights here and we hope to return soon (if we can get a booking that is, it's very popular). The yard is beautiful and well kept. The house is laid out perfectly and opens up onto the yard with several areas for relaxing and having fun. We swam, jumped in the waves, played catch, walked along the beach, played card games after dinner and ate like kings. The staff was helpful and lovely to talk with. We were very well looked after and felt comfortable just hanging out and relaxing. A lighting storm took out the TV and wifi our first night but it was fixed by morning. Thanks Bart for allowing us a short time in your paradise.

“We will come again”
Reviewed February 6, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We loved to stay in Villa Golden so much – we will come back for sure, not only for 47 days like this time, but for 3 months to escape from winter at home!. This, we think is the best compliment one can give to the owner of a house and to the staff. Villa Golden offered everything we needed.

We found paradise outside :
On the very nice shady veranda with comfortable, cosy lounge.
In the wonderful garden with lots of cocunut trees, many exotic plants and flowers - where you can watch leguans, squirrels and Ibis, and if you are lucky you can see chamaeleons in the bush. At night time the garden is nicely illuminated.
By enjoying a refresing swim in the very clean pool.
At the fantastic beach where you can watch the fishermen going out and coming in and you are welcome to help them taking the nets in. During daytime the beach looks empty. In the evening however, the people come to enjoy sundown: Few tourists, old and young people from around come for a walk with small kids, and the young boys play volleyball or football. The sea was a bit rough when we were there, but clean and warm.

During our long stay we also had guests coming to visit us at the villa : our daughter with husband and two kids, and later an old business friend of ours. They also were most happy staying at this wonderful place.

Last but not least: What is a holiday villa without good staff? We have been treated so well and friendly by Susantha the manager, by Pushpa the cook and houskeeper, by Suranga, who came in the evening and cared for us till next morning. Many thanks to all of them, incl. Malani and Hashika, who came once a week when Pushpa or Suranga had their day off. Thanks to all of you!
