Just returned from a wonderful week here. The view of the lake from the house is breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful. The house itself is in a modern but very local style. It's very spacious and the whole living area is entirely open to the elements....More

About the neighborhood
The area near Galle in southern Sri Lanka is one of the prettiest and most popular destinations in Sri Lanka. The pace of life is different, the food is good and the people are delightful. The coast is relatively unspoiled and Galle Fort has been carefully protected to maintain its historic buildings and atmosphere. For those interested in wildlife, Yala national park is not too far away with plenty of game: elephant and leopard in particular. But, even if you just stay at the Lake House, all manner of wildlife will cross your path from giant porcupine to monitor lizards, and the monkeys swing through the trees next to the house and, much to our annoyance, sit on our roof. (its annoying because they can break the tiles!)
How to get there
We will arrange to collect you from the airport and return you at the end of your stay. For nearby trips, you can use our tuk tuk and for longer excursions, we can arrange a car with driver.
