Galle villa description

The architecturally designed beach house is unique in the area being one of the few contemporary, western style houses. Sleeping 4-6 people comfortably, this beautiful beachfront getaway allows families or couples a holiday within minutes of all that Sri Lanka has to offer. Experience the exciting local cuisine (curries, seafood and tropical fruits), unbelievable diving and swimming, or just sit back on the deck, and watch the sun go down.

The house is equipped with two well appointed bedrooms with ensuites and modern amenities including dishwasher, 6-burner gas stove, air conditioning etc. Bathrooms are complete with seaviews, and a view of the stars in external bathroom. The house also has free WiFi for guest use.

Private access to the beach, a lovely sea lagoon about few minutes walk, green turtles feeding on the reef in front all provide something for everyone. Surfing for all levels at Unawatuna beach only ten mins walk away. Bars, restaurants and 5-star spas less than 5mins with historic Galle only 10 mins.


Things to do: Sight seeing and activities

The southern beaches of Sri Lanka are famous for their surf and fabulous fishing spots. The house is only moments away from Unawatuna, and ten minutes from Galle by tuc tuc where you can book scuba, surf and or fishing trips.

Sri Lanka is also famous for its precious and semi-precious stones with jewellers available to make pieces on request. Take photos along so you are well prepared if this interests you.

Travelling inland, you can visit a number of very important and lovely temples passing rice paddy fields and tea/cinnamon plantations along the way. Spa and health facilities are available in a number of the 5*star hotels locally including the Fortress Hotel at Kogalla or the AmanGala in Galle.

                          The house is about 10mins south of Galle on the Southern Highway, with the drive time anywhere between 2.5 and 4 hours. When booking flights, try to arrange arrival and departure times which are late in the evening or very early morning, as you will avoid the Colombo traffic which stretches the drive time out. Contact me if you are unsure of the best times.
