“Home away from home”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Moonstone villa is the perfect place to unwind. It is very conveniently situated, close to both the galle fort and beaches along that stretch. It's comfortable, well equipped and most importantly run by very competent and discreet staff. The meals they provided us were delightful and was done in house with the minimum of fuss. Probably the best of my stays in a fully equipped home. The beach was a bit rough, so we did not venture out to the sea much, but since we are already planning our next holiday back, I don't think that was too much of a bother. Thanks Dom and staff for a wonderful holiday.

“Beautiful place to relax”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed here with 3 friends for 6 nights at the end of our Sri Lankan adventure. It was perfect for us - very comfortable, very stylishly decorated (we wanted to take everything home), well fitted out with everything you could need. The staff were awesome - Nemail & Monica are great cooks. The seafood BBQ on the last night was delicious & memorable. Raj was there in an instant if there were any problems & there was 24 hr security so very safe. Right on the beach front which is a bit wild to swim in but great to listen to. The 4 single beds are 2 bunks so not perfect for adults. There are some lovely tuk tuk drivers waiting across the road to take you anywhere - just agree on a price before you set off. Its about 9km into Galle Fort which is an easy ride in the tuk tuk. We loved it!

“Superb elegant beachfront accomodation.”
Reviewed September 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our stay at Moonstone Villa was beyond our expectations. We had travelled a long distance the day of our arrival to a very warm welcome by the very kind owner Dominic. Every day was a joy to wake to the sound of the surf and the wonderful smiles of the Nimal and Monica who made our delicious breakfasts. The extremely capable Raj made sure everything worked. The staff ensured our every comfort without being intrusive. The villa was comfortable and stylish
and the views from the beach quite breathtaking. The distance from Galle Fort just right with either a 10 minute Tuk Tuk ride or very cheap local bus. Dominic's well informed advice and suggestions very helpful. I would recommend this lovely place to anyone wishing to have a laid back, heavenly holiday in Southern Sr Lanka. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality from the 4 Aussie Gals. X

“Utterly Fantastic”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Together with my wife, two young children and our small dog, we have had a thoroughly fantastic 5 night stay at Moonstone Villa. The villa interior and exterior are finished to an exceptionally high standard which we have not found at any other villa in Sri Lanka. It is the only accommodation we know which has an automatic standby generator to combat the regular power outages. The villa has direct access to a mostly deserted beach which is fantastic. The staff are friendly and wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble and any minor issue (e.g. broken pool light) rectified immediately. Added to that the chef produces wonderful food at very reasonable prices. We will definitely be back.

“great holiays”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

It was not easy to find a good house to rent in Sri Lanka. We got lucky. Big spacious house, nicely places and great stuff made our stay unforgettable. Sri Lanka is an amazing place. And staying in this villa was a good choice. privacy and comfort. beach is very nice.
We had lots of different small trips around. Food was prepared at home which we bought in neighborhood. Always fresh fish and vegetables. And fruits. All facilitates at the villa worked properly and we did enjoy your stay very much.

“Lovely Sri Lankan Villa”

We had a wonderful few days at Moonstone Villa. The staff were very kind and attentive and looked after us very well. It was very helpful having Raj on the premises to drive us to Galle in his Tuktuk. We loved watching the fishermen bringing in their nets in front and we bought a huge Para fish to cook up in the well-equipped kitchen.
