About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, poolside shower, sleeps 8

Spacious villa built 10 years ago. Sleeps 8 people with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Large lounge/dining area with ample seating, LCD TV and DVD. Air Conditioning and ceiling fans in lounge and all bedrooms. Set in 1/2 acre garden with masses of tropical flowers and fruit trees. Lovely new pool finished to very high standard with poolside shower. Garden visited by numerous species of exotic bird life (kingfishers, sun birds, paradise flycatchers etc.).

Located just 6-7 minutes walk from fabulous surfing beach of Hikkaduwa (used for international surfing competitions). Just a 10 minute walk along the beach takes you to a place where it is possible to feed giant 120 year old sea turtles by hand as they practically come in to the shore. Numerous restaurants along beach front to choose from. Maintenance manager close by to sort out any concerns and arrange excursions to any destination. Historic and shopping centre of Galle less than 1/2 hour away.


Serendib villa is a splendid modern villa built on a plot of land we fell in love with when we visited Sri Lanka 11 years ago because the setting was so tranquil and peaceful. Despite this it is only 5-6 minutes walk from the famous surfing beach of Hikkaduwa with a multitude of restaurants to choose from. Our maintenance manager, Sarath, at the nearby Golden Sand Beach Hotel, will take care of any concerns you may have and arrange excursions to anywhere on the island. He can also arrange your collection from the airport and transport to the villa if required.


The garden is a haven for bird life and you can see numerous exotic tropical species just sitting on the Veranda or stroll through the garden filled with Hibiscus, Frangipani and Bougainvillea flowers with papayas, bananas and mangoes ripening on the trees. The pool is of the same luxury standard as those at the 5 star Saman Villas Hotel and it is surrounded by coconut palms.

Serendib is a great place to do as much or as little as you want. Just chill out by the pool and watch the bird life, go for great surfing at the beach, or use it as a base to explore all the delights that Sri Lanka has to offer. A welcoming bowl of tropical fruit will be waiting for you on your arrival. Please note that although the pool is delightful for swimming at any time of year the sea currents on the coast in the European summer (July - August) can be strong and make swimming inadvisable.
