Situated half way between Colombo and the airport. It's a three bedroomed property with a 10 metre pool,cabana to relax. The nearby village is charming, with waterways and multi-coloured fishing boats. Here you can observe village life so close to the city. Visit the fish stalls and buy the catch of the day, if you enjoy cooking, also our resident caretaker can arrange food deliveries from nearby restaurants as well as your transport requirements to explore the neighbourhood more.

The space

We are located just 20 minutes from the airport via the highway and 40minutes from Colombo. An ideal location as a base and home environment for your Sri Lankan adventure! We can comfortably accommodate 6 adults, but can expand to 10 as we have 4 camp beds.

The house is beach fronted, but it's usually too rough for swimming, however there are calmer stretches of water nearby.
You can watch the fishing boats, sunsets and crashing waves from our small garden pavilion or our large balcony.
The house is very private and has a large garden with flowering shrubs and a 10metre swimming pool.
All the rooms have fans and air conditioning.

There are well stocked supermarkets and fresh seafood is available, straight off the fishing boats a couple of kilometres away and you can see village life at its most charming. We also have a BBQ which can be fired up to grill the catch of the day.

Our in house caretaker is able to make breakfast at extra cost. Lunch and dinner can be organised and delivered via nearby restaurants if you don't want to cook.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the private pool, TV, cable channels, and free wifi and the beach.

Interaction with guests

Our cook and caretaker can understand English. I can be contacted by either email or mobile phone between 9am and 9pm and live in Colombo (45 minute drive away). The caretaker's mobile is listed as the secondary contact (his name is Bernard) and can be contacted for directions and any other logistical matters.

Other things to note

We have a large private garden full of flowering shrubs and trees where kids are safe to run and play and a 10metre swimming pool.

Stayed for 2 weeks. The place is beautiful and the help from the owner and the manager outstanding. We had a wonderful time and recommend this place to anyone looking for a trouble free waterfront holiday.

A beautiful villa with seaview, we especially enjoyed the pool very much. Bernard and Chaneke took great care of us and served a nice breakfast each morning. Although the sea was too rough to swim this time of the year, we enjoyed our beach walks to a closeby restaurant. All in al we had a wonderful stay and we would definitely recommend this place!

On the plus side, the pool was great and the house is well maintained. The house looks onto the beach but the surf is extremely violent here and definitely not swimmable. On the downside there is privacy only in the bedrooms as the caretakers were present the whole time watching us even when we were using the pool. One of the caretakers sleeps in the ground floor lounge on a bed. This was a disappointment as when we hire a villa we expect a higher degree of privacy which unfortunately in this instance was not the case.

We have given strict instructions for them not to interfere with the privacy of visitors, and they sleep in the pantry area on a temporary basis.

Pool and garden well maintained and by the side of the neach. But the inside of the actual accomadation is dirty and filthy and disorganized. The bath room are worst than public ones. Furniture, tables, walls dirty. Every kitchen utensil you wish to use got to be washed properly, kitchen smells. Two care-takers are watching every move of yours, no privacy. At night they sleep in the kitchen. Although you might pay for the entire house (as we did) the main care taker takes over one of the rooms for him self. This is not entirely the care takers fault, but the host does not provide suitable living arrangements for the caretakers. In addition, there is a camera that records every move of yours in the main living room. Will never recommend this place to anyone.

I am rather surprised about your comments as up to now (your occupancy) there have been no complaints about what you say as dirty and smelly. The security cameras are for security against any intruders and not to spy on you there are cameras outside as well for this purpose and you had no business to cover the camera without asking me. I will personally inspect the bathrooms and attend to any deficiencies. Your language seem rather vulgar when speaking to my staff, suggest you fine tune it to gentlemanly speech. Last but not least your recommendations or not, do not affect me.
