Look no further than the White House Villa if you wish to stay in Hikkaduwa.
We stayed in Villa 2 for 6 days and it is absolutely gorgeous.
When we arrived, we wondered around the huge rooms for half an hour just uttering words like 'wow' and 'amazing' - it really is so lovely, the photos on here and even the ones we took just do not do it enough justice!
The outside is brought inside with their clever interior design which is beautifully executed, very well maintained and adourned with tasteful, solid pieces of furniture.
There are 3 great bedrooms, we chose the master one with an awesome view of the pool and lake.
The house is loaded with amenities a good collection of books, cd's, dvd's and an Ipod docking station, we spent every day chilling with our tunes on, splashing in the pool and soaking up the sounds and sights of this really, very peaceful hideaway.
I contacted Ric the owner through his email and he give us a really good price, his manager Mr Chaminda organised our taxi from the airport. Udara, the guy that picked us up was professional, helpful and made the 4 hour trip enjoyable, we stopped for lunch on the way which was a great way to break up the journey.
Susantha was also really very nice, he looks after the house guarding and cleaning.
The centre of Hikkaduwa is easily reachable by Tuk Tuk, don't be put off thinking that this place is not in the town - because it is only 5 mins away - we cycled the bikes to town one day which was hard work but fun!
There is a vast well equipped kitchen, but we chose to eat in the Asian Jewel hotel for Breakfast and Dinner as its literally a stones throw away. Just let Tanya and Dale know you're around - they are fab, extremely welcoming and the food is gorgeous.
Next to the villa is also Kallabonga which serves food and drink with a great view of the lake at sundown.
Not to be missed :o)
All in all - a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing stay !
