Our lovingly restored beach house offers stylish yet relaxed coastal living. It has six bedrooms, extended living areas, a large pool, five wonderful staff to attend to your every need and the beach at the end of the garden.
One of the original grande dames of the South Coast, Thalpe House has been lovingly restored to offer a contemporary home away from home for our young family and friends.
Furnished throughout with a blend of antiques and modern art and furniture sourced from across Asia, the house is designed to offer stylish yet relaxed beach living.
The property consists of three double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, all with spacious en-suite bathrooms, elegant four-poster beds and either pool or panoramic ocean views.
In the family wing there is a further double bedroom, a children’s bedroom with two double bunk beds, and a large shared family bathroom featuring a freestanding bath.
The nursery, complete with cot and changing table, can also be converted into an additional single room on request.
All bedrooms have A/C and overhead fans. There is wifi throughout the house.
The downstairs living area opens on to the tropical garden to make the most of the spectacular ocean views and warm Sri Lankan climate, while the expansive upstairs sitting and games area is the perfect place to retreat and watch a movie, play cards or immerse yourself in a great book.

You will have the entire house to yourself, ensuring total privacy during your entire stay.
Our staff generally start their day at 7am and finish once dinner has been completed and guests are enjoying a night cap. A security guard and one member of staff then remain on site throughout the night.
We have trained our team to provide attentive but discrete service, however should you wish complete privacy or further assistance then let Sathish know.
Thalpe House is your home throughout the duration of your stay. As such we want you to treat it as you would your own.
While the attentive staff are on hand to help with your every need, if you want to let loose in the kitchen then it's yours to enjoy. If you want total privacy, then send them to bed.
All we ask in return is that you respect our home and our team, and if you are happy with the service they provide then please tip them accordingly.
