“Sri Lankan bliss!”
Reviewed February 6, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My husband, 2 small boys (2 and 4) and I just returned (end Jan) from a wonderfully memorable holiday at Indie Beach House, and I would not have changed a thing.

The villa owner, Diane, was always very helpful and responded quickly to all my (many) questions prior and during the trip. The villa staff (house manager, house keeper and night security) just could not do enough for you, and always with a lovely smile and gentle manner. Nirman, the house manager was essentially the equivalent to a personal concierge at the villa and, when asked, recommended and organised comfortable transportation for trips around the area. Breakfast was always served at the table at the end of the garden by the sea, which started with the most mouth-watering fruit - apple bananas, papayas, mangoes to die for - and then you could have an (amazing, highly recommended) Sri Lankan breakfast of hoppers, dried coconut and egg curry, or scrambled eggs (I'm sure there were other options, but we were perfectly happy with these). Dinner could also be cooked upon request - my husband bought fish off the beach one morning and the staff cooked it up for us that night!

The villa location was perfect - a (relatively) easy 2 hr trip from Colombo airport down the express way, it is in a lovely location a short tuk-tuk ride away from historic and romantic Galle, and a good distance away from the touristic Hikkaduwa (but not too far if you want to go and check it out by tuk-tuk). From the villa location in Boosa, we took day trips to Uda Walawe national park to see the elephants, and to see waterfalls, take in some surfing south of Galle, boat trip on the lake to Cinnamon island, and releasing baby sea turtles into the Indian Ocean. We were even able to take the slow train back to the villa from Galle!

The villa was just superb - clean lines and accent lighting setting off stunning artwork on the walls, modern but simple bathrooms with walk in waterfall showers and a sunken bathtub with a window overlooking the garden and sea, the vast upstairs living room and terrace were perfect for napping in the warm afternoons, or enjoying a gin & tonic while watching the late afternoon thunderstorms roll by, the pool was clean and refreshing, and the garden a green oasis that led onto the beach with its therapeutic soundtrack of crashing waves. Fast reliable wifi and a choice of TV stations and DVDs provided the final touch of everything we could want in this spot of paradise ... when can I go back?!?

“Beautiful place for a holiday”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Just loved everything it had to offer. Its close proximity to the sea, large bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds, large sitting room with lovely views, and very friendly staff who were attentive to all our needs. I am not one who swims, but the pool looked great. I shall definitely make another visit when possible.

“Beautiful villa just yards from the sea!”
Reviewed February 4, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My son booked this villa for 3 nights in mid January and he, my friend and I thought it was absolutely perfect and a beautiful place to stay. The beds were gloriously comfortable, the sitting area had a huge television hidden behind shutters and again was very comfortable and cool,and the sun deck on the same floor was huge ( although we had rather too much rain to use the area!). The swimming pool was lovely, the sea is just yards away and I recommend the villa highly. We were well looked after by the couple too.
Thank you for letting us stay. I would love to return next year.

“Beautiful and very comfortable Beach house close to Galle”
Reviewed January 29, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Indie Beach House is a great place to stay with panoramic ocean views and lovely communal areas to hang out. You can relax in the very comfortable living room, the upstairs balcony, the kitchen/dining or in the garden next to the pool. There is direct access to the beach. Staff are really friendly and helpful too. Will be back!

“Luxurious Beach House”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Myself and a group of friends stayed at Indie Beachouse for 4 nights and we had a brilliant time enjoying the weather, views and outdoor activities! While staying here, we were looked after by the staff Nirman and Nirmani, who kindly welcomed us into the modern villa and cooked us delicious meals including a lovely beach BBQ. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by the water front and recommend the fantastic house to all who are in for a nice treat. This was our first trip to Sri-Lanka and it certainly wont be our last.

“Stunning Beach House”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

My family and I had a brilliant holiday at Indie. We adored the house, beautifully designed and a lovely spacious and contemporary feel. The kids spent all day in the swimming pool, we even saw some turtles on the beach!!! The staff Nirman and Nirmani were incredibly welcoming and made our stay so lovely. We felt like we had a home away from home. We highly recommend this beautiful villa for a holiday. We will definitely be back next year!!!
