Thank you for making my first trip to Sri Lanka an amazing first few days. Such a lovely place and such friendly staff. The food was incredible (thanks Chef) and the afternoon cricket match – a highlight. Highly recommended and will come back one day.

“3 Families: One amazing week”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Skye House when we went for a week long vacation with 2 other families.

6 adults + 7 children and it never felt crowded. The chef took great care of us with a variety of dietary needs; the property is well maintained (not that sure about chlorine levels in the pool but that was a minor detail) and the staff eager to please.

Janaka, the house manager, was always around and open to suggestions.

The only slight note is that there are services that can be booked for people to come to the villa. We were not that impressed with the pedicurist or masseuse who were recommended but that's really a minor detail. If these types of services are important to you, go to an establishment if you want 4 or 5 star service.

The house has a lovely yard and also beach access; is very conveniently located next to a turtle hatchery and about 10-15 minutes from Galle.

The house manager provided us auto rickshaw (tuk-tuk) rides to the store as well as to Galle city proper, including shopping areas there. Best family vacation on record.

Hi David,

Many thanks for taking the time to write the review. In relation to the massages we do take care about who we recommend and you'll appreciate that what is engaged by one person is not necessarily engaged by another. But we will be more careful in future and take care to make all therapist details known.
Thank you for coming and we hope to see you back again.

“Great family holiday in perfect location”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Great week with 2 other families in April. Spoilt with good food, perfect weather and, crucially, happy kids.

Super property right on the beach. Well maintained & managed.

Will come back.

“A little bit of paradise”

We had our wedding at the Skye House and the experience was absolutely amazing. The location was great, as shown in the photos, right on the beach. The sound was the waves crashing on the shore was all you could hear. It was wonderful.

The house itself was well-maintained and big enough for 13 people to enjoy without getting in each other's way. The staff were amazing, friendly and accommodating. They did everything they possibly could to make sure that our wedding/ wee holiday was a memorable one. They prepared whatever we asked for and the food was excellent. They kept all the receipts for groceries and settling the account when we left was very straight forward. It was good value for money as well. And when our parents left at 4 in the morning, they had breakfast prepared and all the staff were there to say goodbye.

If I nitpick, I would say the wifi could be improved but then again you don't miss the internet much when you're there. All 13 of us there, adults and children, loved it and plan to come back again.
