The people were very friendly and the location is great. If you are going to stay in Galle, staying inside the fort is the best place. There is a rooftop terrace with a view over the ocean and the rooms are very spacious and clean. A great value!

We stayed here 5 nights in Sept 16-21. Fantastic location with a wonderful view of the ocean and the fort wall with fantastic sunsets. Away from the touristy section of the Fort yet an easy walk to anywhere. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, excellent beds. But what takes this place from simply wonderful to extremely special is Theekshana and his parents. Words can't describe how welcoming and delightful they are. You would be lucky to spend time here.

We stayed here 2nights with 2 adults and a son of 1,5 years old. The house is at a nice location and you can easily walk to all close restaurants. Fort galle is a nice place for 1 or 2 nights during a holiday in sri lanka. The appartment is nice and is in the building of the owners. They are very friendly. We should recommend this place.

We had 2 nights at Fort De 19, it's a small place (with only 2 rooms) but the rooms are spatious, with lots of natural light. Most importantly the beds and pillows were very comfortable and everything was spotless. The bathroom was a good size and our room had a balocy with a lovely view of the fort and out to sea (which we did not get to enjoy because if rainy weather)
The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. They do not offer breakfast, but there are plenty of options very close by. I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: the back one is bigger, but the front has the view :)

We have found for De 19 Villa by chance while seeking for a place to stay. No signs and no information in the guide books. A bit like a "boutique hotel" in some secret spot.
Look for the number 19, left door of Seegreen.

This guest house is just the perfect place to stay in Galle: Ideal location, open ocean view, nice bedroom, very clean, quite, extra little bed for our 4 years old boy....

Mattress and linen were amazing, the best we had experienced in Sri Lanka after a month of travel.Like a for stars hotel. Same for the bathroom: bath tube + shower + hot water + no bugs + goof towels....

Hosts are very nice too. They gave us a lot of information about Galle, the places to visit, the shops and the best restaurants. At the end of our stay, they arrange a confortable taxi to go to the airport at a fairly good price.

We really enjoyed watching the sun set from our terrace while local people were playing crickets. What a fantastic experience and so quiet !

If you've got the chance to go there, ask to see the huge fish in the little aquarium close to the kitchen. Our boys loved him.

Fort de Villa provides a hotel comfort for the price of a guest house. Great value for money. No breakfast included in the price but the restaurant next door can arrange that on their outside terrace with view on the ocean.

Congratulation to the owner Theekshana. Don't change, you are heading the good way.
