“Near perfect - set on the most beautiful stretch of the beach”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed here for ten days looking for relaxation after a hectic year – and found this place to be near perfect. We had hired a driver for the duration so the 15 mins to all the buzz of Hikkaduwa was not at all an issue – more of an advantage. The Luxury of walking through the garden onto the beach and seeing no more than 10 people within a kilometer in each direction – during the whole stay (!) – needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

The house was clean and very well kept, wifi worked smoothly without interruptions even with teenagers streaming videos. Particularly thoughtful we found the books and board games left in the house. If you like falling asleep to the soft sound of breaking surf, you will surely sleep well here – even if the noise from the main road just behind the property wall is sometimes noticeable. But even for those that are easily disturbed by traffic the noise is surely better than most places to stay along the coast.

The staff was friendly, polite, considerate and helpful in a non-intrusive way. There were some language barriers to overcome, particularly with the chef, but what lacked in understanding was compensated for with effort. The owners were friendly and helpful as well both prior to arriving as well as during our stay. We felt truly welcomed as guests to their house.

The cooking was OK, it was reasonably easy to arrange a standard breakfast that was always served timely and well cooked. We soon reverted to sandwiches and fresh fruit for lunch and then let the chef decide on his choice for dinner. The variety of the menu could be expanded as could the decision process leading up to lunch or dinner.

The only thing we really missed was the pool. Not because we need it with the soft soothing sea breeze easing the heat and the garden shower to rinse off the salty sea water, but only because we like to be spoiled with both private beach and private pool… Once they get their pool approved and in place – we’ll be sure to come back! Enjoy your stay!
