Located in what was formerly a clove plantation, of which only three clove trees survive, Old Clove House has been renovated, restored and modernised, and given a new lease of life as a holiday rental home. Located just minutes from the beaches of Thalpe and Unawatuna, the private leafy compounds of this house is a welcome respite and sanctuary from the beaches and town. The house consists of three large double bedrooms, all en-suite with hot water rain showers, and are cooled by overhead ceiling fans or air-conditioning. The main master suite has a large King-sized bed, a separate sitting/ lounging area, a large dressing area and a bathroom with a wonderful landscaped area with an open to sky shower. The second bedroom, the pool room, opens directly to the swimming pool, and has a ...Located in what was formerly a clove plantation, of which only three clove trees survive, Old Clove House has been renovated, restored and modernised, and given a new lease of life as a holiday rental home.

The second bedroom, the pool room, opens directly to the swimming pool, and has a King-sized bed, a walk-in dressing room and an attached bathroom with open to sky rain shower. The third bedroom, suitable for adults or a group of children, comprises a main bedroom with a Queen-sized bed and a single bed, an attached smaller room with a single bed which could be used by more children or the nanny and has an attached bathroom with open to sky rain shower. This bedroom has two single beds and one Queen-sized double bed. Old Clove House is in a lush, verdant beautifully landscaped garden, and is very peaceful and tranquil, but just minutes from the beaches, making it a great base to explore the beaches of the South of Sri Lanka, and Galle Fort/ town. Old Clove House is perfect for a large group, be it family or a group of friends. Guests will have access to the entire house and are expected to treat the house as they would their own. There is high-speed WiFi connection, with satellite TV offering all premium channels and the latest Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III which guests can stream any music of their choice from any of their smart devices via Bluetooth and enjoy superlative sound quality. There is an in-house cook who will prepare all meals for guests as required. We take great pride in the high standard of the meals served at Old Clove House and endeavour to provide our guests with a very memorable dining experience whilst staying at Old Clove House. All food and beverages prepared and consumed at Old Clove House are at cost with no mark-ups. Old Clove House is your home for the duration of the rental and you are not expected to pay any more for food and drinks consumed than when you're at your own home. The head houseboy and two additional younger houseboys attend to housekeeping duties, guests' welfare and will also assist with guests' laundry if required. The staff is highly valued and work very hard with integrity and honesty and we only expect that they are well tipped if guests are happy with their service. Previous guests have been extremely happy with the dedicated service of this hardworking team. Pets are allowed and welcome and smokers are not discriminated against.More

We stayed here two years ago and this review is well overdue (!) and we hope the staff are still the same. Our family of 5 ( 3 boys between the ages of 8 - 13 at the time) stayed at the Old Clove House...More
