À propos de ce logement
Very Spacious suite with a private plunge pool and modern comforts where time stands still as you enjoy the space nature and tranquillity in this very old Dutch colonial villa.
Nestled in the middle of a large lush garden with sprawling trees and picturesque scenery, our villa is only a 15 minutes drive from Galle Town, the most well-known coastal city in Southern Sri Lanka.
Deliberately designed to provide ample space and relaxed privacy for its guests, it is a newly- restored 18th century two-storied building which offers two large suites, each with a private swimming pool and a jacuzzi/ bath tub.
The suites are surrounded by spacious verandahs opening out onto the terraced garden which gently slopes away from the house. Although hidden away, the ingenious planning of the original 18th century original owner (who's said to be a supplier of material to the Dutch Fortress construction) means that the position of building provides almost a lookout over the surrounding area.
This suite -- Sunrise Suite -- obviously facing east, on first floor, is surrounded by long wide balconies. It also has 6 large windows and 3 double doors giving a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, jungles and paddy fields.
The two suites can be booked together or separately. Each suite is completely separated from the other to ensure privacy.
Both suites have been sympathetically restored in keeping with the history of this very old building, but with a modern emphasis on comfort, space and connection to nature. In a continuation of its heritage & is decorated with antique furniture from the Dutch period including large four poster beds.
Time stands still as you enjoy the peaceful comfort and understated luxury of the rooms and the simple pleasures of being close to nature. Alternatively, Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away.
(Please note that given its large balconies, staircases, and open swimming pool on the first floor, we regret that it is not able to accept guests with small children for safety reasons.)
The famous "The Lighthouse Hotel" -- a masterpiece by the world renown Architect, Geoffrey Bawa -- and the beautiful beach just 10 minutes away.
Meals can be ordered or a cook can be hired by prior arrangement.
Breakfast included in the rates

We try to meet and welcome guests personally when they check in. Whenever we have time we love to interact with the guests as we -- our family, myself, my husband Dinesh and our four kids 20, 12, 11 & 5 years old live down stairs. But you will have your privacy as you have a separate entrance to your suite and also you are on the first floor.
We have an open staircase to the suite which gives you a lot of privacy but in rainy weather you need an umbrella!
