Property description

We want you to have a totally carefree, barefoot on the beach experience, in this light and spacious villa with sea views and direct access to a large sandy beach at the end of the garden. Our beach is mostly deserted, with only an occasional local. There are no private beaches anywhere in Sri Lanka, and ours is as close to 'private' as you can get! Leave the worries and stress of modern life behind you and relax and unwind at this tranquil location. The villa's friendly and helpful staff will cook, clean and take care of the chores, so allow yourself to be spoiled! They are never intrusive, but always ready to ensure you have a perfect holiday.

The villa derives its name 'Olu', from the large pond with lotus in the back garden.

When you want a change, the lively tourist resort of Hikkaduwa, with its many bars and restaurants, is just 15 minutes by car, bus or tuk-tuk.

Enjoy cosy comfort in a clean tropical environment, with all mod cons. Ideal for indoor and outdoor living and dining, with loads of space for a family with children or a group of friends. It is also the perfect romantic getaway for a couple.

All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with showers, air-conditioning and ceiling fans. The beds are inviting and comfortable with the finest of white cotton linens.
We have furnished all the bedrooms with the most comfortable twin beds we could find, they can be locked together as doubles or easily separated to convert rooms to twin sharing. There is a day-bed (for a child up to 12 years) in the largest room which also has an open-air bathroom with cold water only. The other two en-suites have both hot and cold water.

We offer a well equipped kitchen for your own use, and a separate service kitchen where the cook will be delighted to make any or all your meals. We can highly recommend the rice and curry and other Sri Lankan specialities, as well as a limited menu of Arabic and western dishes.

For quiet days at home there are board games, dvds and books, as well as beach toys and a large children's pool that can be set up on request. And of course, there's the ocean .....

Our staff of four, cook, cretaker, gardener and security guard will provide a level of service customised to your preferences - and, they have been trained to respect your privacy at all times.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our eldest son Michael Daane Bolier designed this house for us soon after graduating as an architect, and last year he won the German award Fritz Hoger Preis Gold in the category 'Newcomer', for the design. We wanted a vacation home on the beach in Sri Lanka, and fell in love with this location. It's rural setting, but with easy access to Hikkaduwa, Galle and Ambalangoda, and the lovely, almost deserted beach, were all we were looking for. We had the house built by local craftsmen, using local materials; and we were personally involved in every aspect of the process. In retrospect, the arduous entanglements with burocratic redtape make for interesting anecdotes, as when we had to get permits to buy trees to get the beams that span the width of the house. With the exception of sanitaryware and fittings, everything else was handcrafted! In return for all the effort, we now have a beautifully crafted house with character, a wonderfully tranquil and calming space, complemented by the large gardens in front and at the back. The addition of a swimming pool makes it everything we always dreamed of.
