We were low season 28th May to 4th June and the weather was brilliant. A beautiful sea breeze .Amazing house with a horizon pool overlooking the pole fisherman.Swam between the surf , 2 minutes walk and the pool. Had our meals on the verandah overlooking all this, massage anytime on a table in the garden, and then upstairs to the balcony for a night cap. Beds were turned down and mozzie nets loosened. Went to sleep to the sound of the waves.
Kumara our driver took us anywhere we wanted. A few places were suggested such as the turtle hatchery , the tea plantation, and Galle. But we also just suggested a drive south and north and found some awesome places. Shall list below.
The high lite was my was husband's 60th. We started in the pool with a champagne and croissant breakfast. Had a phone call from Sonali the owner wishing a Happy Birthday and also gave a gift. We had booked for lunch at The Sunset house in Galle.
The best G & T's in Dick's bar then Shepard pies in the garden restaurant .
I pre arranged fireworks but the staff organized a guitarist for before and then he sang Happy Birthday afterwards. The chef carved a watermelon with a candle as a deco on the dinner table,All the staff including the Gardner were wonderful, but Sugith's (Sootie) smiling face greeted us each day and saw us retire each night. He took us for a walk to the other villa on the lake. Also to the temple. The tea plantation was worth the visit with an entertaining host. As was the visit across the road to the community center. The 4 year old children sung to us and we 6 Aussies sung " Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree". They were so polite and didn't laugh. We gave them some money. We received an email when we got home saying that they had used it for a new swing and slide as the old one was unsafe. We did not allow enough time to get back to Colombo airport on a Saturday. It took us just over 5 hours. Let Kumara know your flight time and allow extra.
