Find Sri Lanka's soul in this charming fishing village. This newly built house offers all the comfort and facillities of a favourite home. The beach is just 5 minutes walk away with an everchanging character. Take a walk at sunset, choose the day and experience great surfing or just watch the waves roll in. There is safe sea swimming at times- take local advice- but a sizeable pool in your own garden for year round swimming and relaxation. Lush green lawns surround the house for games and sun bathing, all enclosed by exotic, tropical trees and shrubs.
After a day in the sun exploring the nearby town of Galle or enjoying water sports along the coast, return and unwind in the deliciously cool central courtyard, complete with its own lily pond. Spacious sitting areas furnished with sofas piled with squashy cushions invite you to catch up on your reading.
Four large and well furnished double bedrooms have air conditioning and delightlfully modern en suite bathrooms. Three of these are open air to enjoy showering under the stars.
A daily housekeeper keeps everything spick and span and a gardener/nightwatchman lives in his own quarters in the grounds.

There are two formal dining areas. One sparkling white room indoors with intricately carved teak chairs. A second glass and wrought iron table and chairs sits on a large. Dining is by arrangement so that you have the flexibility to dine in Galle if you wish on the occasional night.
