Perfect place for a group of 10-15 persons / family / friends / group.
5 bedrooms and a lavish living-room and dining area.
They can arrange for a cook or you can manage on your own. But would highly recommend their cook. The lady was super-fast and made super-delicious food for 11 of us.
The swimming-pool was perfect fun point for our entire group.
A departmental-store about 7-8 minutes walk away, on the sea-shore.
Restaurants & beaches about 10-15 mins walk away.
We stayed here for 5 nights. Very spacious and full equipped. The place was clean and tidy. Pool was a very good size, big enough for 7 adults playing, also lots of outdoor space. The company organised for tuk tuks to come and collect us and a car and driver for day trips. For us, the highlight of Hikka Villa was our wonderful chef, Lawl. He prepared us fresh local food every morning and evening. I have never had food like it. Lawl made everything from scratch and was attentive to any dietry needs we had,(there were 2 pescaterians). He was very patient when teaching one of our group, who is enthuastic about cooking, how to make the local cuisine.
Absolutely fantastic place, looks same as the pictures. Excellent owner very easy to get hold of for help. It's value for money and very close to all amenities. Very clean and HUGE space. So planning to come back in the next visit to Sri Lanka.
This Villa was well set up to sleep 10 people and our two families had a fantastic time there. The pool area was wonderful. The staff were attentive. A little more attention to the bathrooms and kitchen would have been nice. The team at Hikka Villas were very accommodating and helpful organizing day trips and excursions. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
Very nice place, the only big disadvantage was fridge with not working cooling part and sometimes issues with water supply, but team brought us replacement small one very fast and water supply also appeared to be fixed on demand in 30 minutes timeframe maximum. I think this will be fixed. Team was really good motivated to help and did everything we need very fast. Place is quiet, comfortable and very nice. Having pool is a must and it suites us very well. Pity that being small it belongs to 2 nearby villas, but as most of the time 2nd villa was empty we were good with it. Villa itself stays in about 15 minutes foot route to the beach, but that was what we need also we were able to call tuk-tuk almost all the time - thanks to Rosanga and his friend to pick up us. Transfer to/from airport is slightly more expensive that could be found in location but there's no problem in it - it was arranged as requested and we were good. Cleaning is arranged in 3 day routine with pre-phone call and was okay.Thanks to everybody there, we enjoyed vacation very much
This was a great villa. Very comfortable and the kids just loved the pool. The beach was a medium walk or short tuk tuk ride away, and there were huge sea turtles which was very fun. The train station was nearby and easy to get to Galle for a day trip. Chat the tour guy was wonderful with help and advice and the children were very taken with him. Lal the chef was amazing and we ate like royalty for a fraction of the cost of restaurants. The interior of the house is getting a bit worn, the bathrooms in particular, but it didn't detract from our enjoyment.

Located 30 minute walk or 5 minute tuk tuk ride from main tourist area we actually really appreciated the peace afforded by Hikka Villa. Being peak time the main area was busy noisy and hectic. It was so wonderful to walk through the village stopping to speak to the locals we befriended and ending up at Hikka Villa, jumping into the gorgeous pool which is as nice as it looks in the photo and having space for our family to spread out in the beautiful home. If you like to be close to the action but still far enough away for a relaxing break then this is the perfect place for you.
