Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Born in Shropshire in 1948, I worked for a major bank for 25 years before starting my own business -Infomedia Services Limited. I am married to Tina who comes from Trinidad. We have three sons and five grandchildren who all love to visit Gin Ganga.

Why the Owner Chose Galle, Sri Lanka:
In 2003 I decided to buy the property as we drove up the long drive. That speaks for itself and the photos do the rest. Ajith drove us to see the house and he and his family are still looking after it after so many years.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Two acres of lush garden surrounded by water to three sides and so much wildlife that you can have a nature tour in you own garden. Eleven years later and we still love it. Top moment is to have a gin and tonic in the 40 foot pool and watch the monkeys - in the trees. You need never leave the house - but do because Sri Lanka has so much beauty and culture to offer.
