Description

A former coconut plantation provides the backdrop for this stunning post-modern villa. Simplicity, serenity and proximity with nature are reflected in the house, the 20m lap pool and the 2 acre garden. Staff of 2 housekeepers, 1 gardener.

The property consists in 4 houses: the main house with the kitchen and sitting room, the Ocean villa with two bedrooms and en suite bathroom, the White Lotus villa with its own sitting room, bedroom and bathroom and the Tree House, built in wood, with its two large bedrooms and bathroom. The property can comfortably sleep 11 adults.

The full property is accessible to guests. The house was built by our family who have been coming to Sri Lanka for 20 years. The area is still very local, and it is important to respect local customs on the property and on the beach.

The house is fully staffed: there are two housekeepers and a gardener. Darshika understands and speaks some English but she is not fluent. The staff are extremely friendly, they can cook local food on demand. Kandewattha has been designed so guests have full flexibility to ask the staff for help or cook themselves . Dharshika and Madu are not professional cooks but they can prepare local meals if you let them know in advance. They will pass you the bill for the cost of buying the food on a daily basis.
Breakfast can be Western or Sri Lankan. For lunch and dinner, there is a simple menu to choose from.
If you would like to cook yourself, you can find plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables at the market in Tangalle. There is also a supermarket, Cargill's Food City, which stocks all the basics but does not sell any wine or spirits.

The area is still very rural, mostly inhabited by local fishermen and their families. There are two natural beaches within 5mn walk: Mawella stretching over 2 km of pristine sand and Rock Beach, with spectacular waves, not for the faint-hearted.
If you wish to eat out you can try Manahara guest house on the beach for local food. For more sophisticated food, we recommend Coco Tangalla, at the entrance of Tangalla. For a magical sunset try to go for drinks at Amanwella, just ten minutes away by tuk-tuk.

There is a daily sea plane from and to Colombo, landing on the lagoon, 5mn away from the house. Check Sri Lankan Airlines Colombo-Dickwella for schedule. The traditional transport from Colombo airport is with a van and driver, cost is around 15000 to 18000 Roupies depending on the van> It takes 3 hours.
A car and driver can also be arranged to visit the Mulkirigala Rock Temple, the Yala or Udawalawe national parks. The magnificent UNESCO protected Galle is about 90mn by car and Colombo is 3hrs via the new highway.

The property is located on a small hill overlooking the sea. This means guests have to go up some stairs to get to the house as cars have no access up on the hill. There are about 3o stairs> We prefer to share that these stairs could prevent elderly people to go up and down during their stay. Luggage can be carried by the staff.


Règlement intérieur
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait à partir de 14:00

We would like guests to respect the house and property as their own. Although we are children friendly, the property is not ideal for young children. They would need constant surveillance especially near the pool which is not fenced.

Ein einmaliger Urlaub mit Freunden. Es war einfach unbeschreiblich, Muni und Darashika haben uns exzellent versorgt, wir waren alle rundum zufrieden. Die Anlage ist großartig, man bekommt auch viel durch Muni Kontakt mit den "Einheimischen" Bzw. auch mit deren Kultur (wenn man auch will). 5***** für alle Dinge, von der Oraganisation bis hin zur Sauberkeit oder Ausflüge, alles war einfach TOP. Diese Immobilie empfehlen wir jedem gerne weiter. Und der Kontakt mit Edward und seiner Mutter war einfach nur grandios. Danke Edward für deine Hilfe bei allen fragen, wir konnten auch eine Nacht ohne Probleme stornieren nachdem unser Flug verlegt wurde. Bezahlung und Rückzahlung über Paypal lief Reibungslos.

Great communication from Edward during the booking process. The villa is quite remote, but our driver was able to liaise with Darshika to guide us in which was a great help. The welcome by Darshika, Muni and Madu was exceptional - they couldn't do enough for us. The villa itself is beautiful, well appointed and has a wonderful pool. There are great views, and the villa is really secluded. We did find that the noise of the waves in the lower master room was to loud to sleep and retreated to the higher bedrooms where a good nights sleep was had. Also, there is no aircon here, so it can get sweaty, but generally a good breeze is had via the ceiling fans/windows/doors/shutters. A massive thanks to Darshika, Muni and Madu, who cooked delicious meals, gave helpful advice and took us to the beach and a hidden local restaurant. We can't thank them enough. Also, Muni is a driver, that although we didn't use, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend based on his brilliant knowledge, fluent English and kindness. I am sure Edward can pass his details to you as a driver, as airbnb prohibits posting his details here. All in all a great stay and we were sad to leave.

This is truly amazing place. We've chosen it for our wedding ceremony on Sri Lanka. And I could say that we made the right choice. We've really been enjoying every minute of our stay here. The villa is located a bit far from the road and so it's hidden from other eyes except monkey's and all the noise except ocean's. You can get here very unique private space. Villa's architecture stands our from most of Sri Lankan's villas. It's Mediterranean vibe is like a breath of fresh air. You can expect to get all what you can see on the pictures and a bit more. The place is clean and comfortable and the staff is very helpful and welcoming. Darshika has been cooking for us some really delicious local food. And her husband Muni helped a lot with transportation. Highly recommend to everyone.

We had an amazing stay in Kandewattha - to a big part thanks to great communication with the host, Edward, and outstanding service from the staff led by Darshika and Muni. When we came, we were first surprised by how big everything was - especially the garden. We thought the pictures looked great but reality was actually way better. We (eleven friends in our late 20's - three couples and five singles) took turns sleeping in the different rooms. The Lotus Villa feels extremely luxurious, and the other two double bedrooms are also great. The treehouse is simpler and much closer to nature, yet nice and more peaceful than the other rooms. Remember to bring ear-plugs for the Lotus Villa as the waves outside can be very noisy, and prepare to come close to wildlife in the treehouse. We had some minor problems with unexpected visitors but these problems were addressed and everything was handled in the best way - just like a real luxury hotel would handle it. On to the food and service. We chose not to cook anything ourselves and that was a great decision! At a very low cost for just the food, we were provided great meals every day - mostly Sri Lankan food but with some Western influences for breakfast. The portions are sometimes smaller than you might be used to, so talk to Darshika if you have any special requests. We asked if we could have some coconuts from the garden to drink from, and they even arranged that. We also got help with doing laundry, and after check-out, Muni drove parts of the group to the airport at a reasonable rate. Also, for excursions the other days, tuktuks were arranged for us and came to pick us up right outside the house. This was highly convenient as the house is a bit remote and tricky to find. Overall, this was a terrific stay. What we appreciated the most was the host and staff's flexibility and service mindedness, the amazing breakfasts, and the relaxed atmosphere that made us all feel very harmonious. Thank you for having us and we hope we'll be back again!

C'est un lieu absolument magnifique. Nous y avons séjourné 12 jours en famille. La pièce à vivre est géniale et permet à tout le monde de se retrouver dans un cadre totalement idyllique. La piscine est superbe et l'eau était à 29 degré tout au long du séjour. Le lieu est magique tellement le calme et la nature dominent tout. Le service est très bon. Les chambres sont décorés avec gout, et ils ne manquent rien dans ces dernières. La maison dans l'arbre est un peu difficile d'accès pour les personnes agees. Nous pensons déjà retourner dans ce lieu très prochainement.

La parenthèse idyllique ! Nous venons de passer une semaine merveilleuse avec nos deux familles... Nos 8 enfants se sont donnés à coeur joie dans la piscine, le lieu de vie principal est idéal au partage. Et le jardin ! ...fascinés par nos rencontres fortuites avec les varans et les singes ... Une vraie déconnexion propice au repos... Bravo pour avoir créé cet endroit incroyable, merci pour votre attention et vos messages d'accueil. Une pensée plus particulière pour Darshika, Madu et Muni qui nous ont reçu et apporté tant de bienveillance. Ces rencontres resteront nos plus beaux souvenirs !

Magnifique villa en bord de mer au milieu d'un parc de cocotier. On en a pris plein les yeux avec les singes dans le Jardin, le passage des iguanes et le réveil face à l océan. Les photos sont conformes à la réalité. Merci à Muni pour ses services de driver et ses conseils sur les endroits à visiter et l organisation de la sortie pêche, et à sa femme pour les bons petits repas qu elle nous a préparés. Je recommande fortement ce logement et nous espérons pouvoir y revenir un jour.
