“A ten day break from living in the Sri Lankan capital”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The Paddy House is one of the most exquisite, idyllic places I have been to in Sri Lanka. It's surroundings are magical and endlessly fascinating as one sits on the terrace looking out across the finest paddy fields and the amazing birds that fly or walk past. It is serenity itself. The house is charming and beautifully designed. Access to Galle and beaches are minutes away though you don't really want to leave the house!

“Paddy Power - What a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Love this place, perfect gem off the beaten track minutes from the beach. Loads of space for the kids to run around in, spent the time observing amazing bird life swopping in to the glorious vibrant paddy fields. Beautifully quiet yet easy to get to the beach and the hustle bustle. The kids loved visiting the paddy island which is paradise. Only snag is that we wanted to live there forever but had to come home. 10 out of 10.

“A little slice of real Sri Lanka - gorgeous views across the green paddy fields and a cosy cottage feel to the house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed at this property on a few of our trips to Sri Lanka, and have never been disappointed. A beautiful homely cottage style house in the most incredible setting. And making it extra special, the house is connected to a stunning island in the middle of the lush paddy fields, full of tropical flowers, coconut trees and birds. We will be back :)

I stayed at Paddy House in November 2013 (before it went on the market) for the weekend and cant stop coming back. It’s serene, beautiful and a nice escape from city life. The proximity to Unawatuna Beach, Wijaya Beach (iconic Galle hangout) and Galle Fort give plenty of dining and beach options but we didn’t leave Paddy House at all. We took groceries, cooked, had dinner watching shooting stars across the moonlit paddy fields and meant to watch a movie but never turned on the TV. Loved cooking in the open kitchen and love the pots, pans and charming English crockery too. A very British cottage in the heart of nature, a magnificent Sri Lankan destination experience. I spend a lot of time travelling Sri Lanka for LT magazine and this is definitely one of the best escapes on offer.
