A gorgeous modern beach house with 5 bedrooms built on the largest beach, good for swimming and boogie boarding, in the Galle area about 10km from the historic Fort town and its international cricket pitch. Three of the bedrooms (2 dbls and the kids room with 6 bunk beds) are upstairs whilst another dbl and a twin are on the ground floor. All bedrooms have air con and are ensuite. There is a large open plan sitting / dining room at the front of the villa with views of the pool and over the garden out to sea. Off this large room is a small study with desk and WiFi. The kitchen is very much a family affair with a central ‘bar’ table for bkfast and casual meals. There is a further air conditioned room with comfortable seating that overlooks the pool.

The most exquisite catered villa you could dream of!
We booked Skye House for a family reunion to celebrate my 70th and two of the grandkid’s birthdays in the same week. Kids live in Oz/UAE/UK. We had high expectations from the brochure but they were far exceeded in reality! You will not be disappointed if you book. We were 4 couples, 4 4+ children and a 2 year old. The 4 double rooms are all similar so no spats over allocation. One has a separate room that can be curtained off for a child/baby. The 7 bed dormitory is ideal for 4+ to teenage kids. The 8 staff led by Chef Sam are all excellent. Professional, friendly and always go above and beyond to satisfy your needs. Sam is both an exceptional team leader and chef. His food is scrumptious and varied. Anything you want is never too much trouble. The suggested daily menus are all excellent and he varied them to cater for those that suffer from allergies/fussyness! The position on the coast is perfect and the pool/playground/gardens are very spacious with good privacy. They are maintained to a very high standard daily by Saman. The owners,Eden Properties, were most helpful. Initially we dealt with Jack Eden who then passed us onto the ubiquitous Udeshika who made our planning very smooth in an efficient and friendly manner. It was exceptional value for money and one I have no hesitation in recommending.

Amazing time at Skye House
We are just back from a fantastic two weeks in Sri Lanka over new year. It is an incredible county and a wonderful time to visit. A brilliant experience for our children who are 9 and 6. There is so much to do from surfing to safaris. Stunning countryside and beaches, insane food and lovely people. We spent the final week at Skye House with two other families with similar aged children. What a place to stay. Beautiful villa, so much space, wonderful pool and garden going on to the beach. The rooms are all big and we had 6 kids in the dorm no prob. Sam and his team looked after us brilliantly. The food was delicious. We had an England vs Sri Lanka cricket match on the lawn where the home team were very generous in their bowling to the kids. You can body board in the sea right in front of the villa and there are great beaches for swimming and surfing close by. Amazing. We will be back!

Stunning beach location - perfect for large families and friends.
I just wanted to write and thank you so much for all your hospitality and support whilst we were at Sky House. We had the most wonderful time; the staff were fantastic, very ably led by Sam and Dai and the villa was absolutely perfect for a large group like ourselves. Please do pass our thanks on to them all. We had lots of room to spread out and were all very comfortable and I thought the location was perfect. The beach was very quiet, and the waves on the beach calmed perfectly and so we were also able to surf and swim in the sea for the latter half of the week as well as enjoying the villa as the perfect base to explore the area. A beautiful country and we will hopefully be back soon.

If Carlsberg did villas... beachside and beautiful
This place is INSANE!!! Skye House is quite frankly the ultimate. Situated on the best beach in Sri Lanka the house is utterly breathtaking. Fully staffed (you will want for nothing) - beachside and beautiful. On arrival you will be greeted by a full complement of staff who will literally look after your every need. An excellent villa for young ones too with a beautiful bunk room and a menu that can be adapted to suit all. You're also only 20 minutes from Galle, near the surf centre of Welligama and have a host of activities on your doorstep. Highly recommend an early morning bike ride with Idle Bikes, a tuk-tuk to Galle Fort, an in-house massage, a trip to the temple and swimming with turtles at Wijaya. Skye House really is the best of its kind. Book through the very excellent Eden Villas (Jack) - who will ensure all your needs/transfers etc are met. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Skye House.. does it get any better?
What an amazing, beautiful place to stay for a family vacation. The villa itself is heaven, the rooms are air-conditioned and bathrooms are very spacious, and the decor is beautiful. It is a perfect location on one of the best beaches on the south coast. The staff were absolutely fantastic, if there were any problems with anything it was attended to immediately with the wonderful Sri Lankan smile. With a family of 5 we had no issues at all in Sri Lanka, transfers worked well, food was excellent, surf was solid and we will be back soon!

Fantastic break
Just days before we were due to fly to Sri Lanka in early July (2022) the UK government (FCO) revised advice to tourists destined for Sri Lanka to only go for essential travel. We have 3 young children but have been to the country on numerous occasions before. We obviously had some concerns after looking at the press coverage of the situation at the time, however we were lucky to have trusted contacts on the ground in the country who reassured us that it was safe to travel. We arrived in Columbo the same day that peaceful protesters entered the presidents residence in Columbo, we didn't go into Columbo as we were heading south to Galle and we had been told the protests were specifically around concerns about the government not against tourists. Without exception, we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by the residents of the country. In addition to the contacts were already knew out there Eden Villas provided reassurance that they had back up fuel if required for generators if the power went off, which it did at times and which all worked well. We managed to travel around locally in tuk tuk's as usual and were welcomed where ever we went. There are extremely long waits (days) for fuel but the local residents waiting in the queues were so well organised and patient we could all learn a lesson from them. The country is experiencing very difficult economic times however tourism is one of the industries that will help to inject foreign currency into the country and enables those employed in the sector to earn a living. Everybody has to make their own decisions about travel and their perceived risks, I would urge people to research beyond the popular press and take advice from those on the ground. We did that and had the most memorable holiday which included swimming with feeding wild turtles, walks through the paddy fields and taking the kids to a cricket test match at Galle cricket ground between Sri Lanka and Pakistan as well as swimming in the sea at Unawutuna. I fully recommend a trip to Sri Lanka and if you are looking for a private Villa Eden Villas offer an exceptionally professional service.

Dear Ali Many thanks for this honest review. Day by day, things are improving. The new rationing of petrol keeps the queues down - I waited only 15 mins for a full tank earlier today. Thank you so much for coming and we all look forward to hosting your again next year. Best wishes Jack

Heaven
Skye House was probably the most luxurious, beautiful place I've ever stayed!! We spent our first week in Sri Lanka travelling around, adventuring, so we were ready for some pampering and WOW did it deliver. We stayed with 2 other families (both with small children, like us) and we were pinching ourselves throughout our stay at our luck. We knew it was going to be incredible from the photos but it waeven better than we imagined. Not only was the house stunning: the setting (right on the beach) and the interiors too, but the amazing team who looked after us for our stay were completely brilliant. Led by Sam, our chef, who cooked the most delicious meal for us and the kids. All the staff were wonderful though and so good with the kids. Coming back home was a bit of a shock!!! The beach was deserted, with white powder sand and dramatic waves (we didn't venture in further than playing up to our waists, and holding on tight to little ones!!) The piece de resistance was a beach barbecue on our last night, under the stars. We were close to Galle and visited a couple of times, as well as wandering 2 minutes down the beach to the turtle sanctuary but other than that we spent most of our time at the villa....why would we leave somewhere so gorgeous?! We had very good massages and yoga in the morning too. I really hope we can go back soon!

Sri Lankan perfection
Skye House is a dream come true. The villa is stunning - every bedroom beautifully designed and the living spaces both super elegant and functional. And the kids adored the dorm. Sam and his team looked after us so wonderfully - and the food, sensational. With the pool and the beach right there, we had zero reason to venture out! Honestly, the perfect holiday. Thank you!

Amazing stay at the skye house
We had an amazing stay at the Skye House. From the moment we rode through the gate we came in a stylish wonderful house. The beach is on the doorstep, the garden is precious and the staff was very attentive. We had the accomodation of a luxurious hotel in a big house. Every room was decorated with stylish furniture and had al the comfort. There is a very cool childrens-room. In the living you look at the or the wonderfull pool. The staff even organized an amazing barbecue on the beach. We have been looking for details that are not okay....impossible to find!! This is an amazing house, all the comfort you can wish for and a very relaxing location.

Perfect beach house for a large family
Can't rate this home highly enough. The staff were great, the food was fantastic and all the rooms large and airy. the beach is one of the best in the south coast (in season - as it can be quite rough out of season). We all loved our stay immensely and will come again hopefully.
