Overview

Tangalle House Rental Photos and Description

Isolated and yet 10 mins walk to Tangalle Village

Muhudu Niwasa - Sinhalese for sea house is approximately 1.5 miles from Tangalla in the small village of Medilla, at the southernmost point of Sri Lanka overlooking the Indian Ocean. It is set in its own private coconut grove with a gate leading directly on to a beautiful white sandy beach so unspoiled and quiet, that turtles have been known to come into the garden to lay their eggs! Bougainvillea, hibiscus and temple flower trees flourish in the garden complete the perfect tropical setting. The house is large and airy with a spacious teak veranda at first floor running the length of the house overlooking the sea. The windows to the rear have spectacular views across the lagoons to the hills in the distance. We have a wonderful host couple who have been with us for 15 years. They prepare the most delicious local dishes and together with the rest of staff will look after your every needs.

Extremely relaxing rustic property,

  • 5 of 5

One of most relaxing and enjoyable holidays. The villa was perfect in a wonderfully quiet and peaceful location,with a wonderful pool and garden. Only a took tuk ride to Tangalla and bars and restaurants are dotted along the beach should you wish.

The chef and the rest of the other staff were wonderful during our stay, I'm already missing all of the delicious curries and fruit!

We will be back!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this traditional Sri Lankan villa. It has a very relaxing position right on the beach with the sound of the Indian Ocean never far away. The garden is a wonderful place to relax and the infinity pool is fantastic.

To compliment the setting the staff are friendly,helpful and yet discreet. The food prepared by the staff was excellent and always prepared to a high standard and their aim was to please all of the time. If you are tired of the daily hustle and bustle of modern hectic life, then this holiday is for you. Thank you to the whole team, who tried their best to make our holiday one of the best.

Alan and Julia.

Owner's Response: Dear Alan and Julia We have just received your review! It was most kind and thoughful of you to write in such glowing terms about our Sri Lanka beach house, the staff and of course the food. It gives me such pleasure when I receive wonderful comments from our guests. They all love having people to stay and I know they do their best to be at service, which is not always easy because some guests want attentive service and other left to their own devices. Thanks once again for your comments which was much appreciated. Your sincerely Michael Gillingham (House owner)

Great location,food and staff.

  • 5 of 5

7 of us staying for 5 nights at this wonderful place. The villa is set in lovely grounds right on the beach as you can see in the pictures. Sarath the cook made our breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, His vegetable curries are fantastic. He will cook whatever you ask but you can't go wrong with his curries. The bill for the food worked out around £5 per person per day! The beach at the front of the property is quiet and clean, To swim it's best you walk 200-300 yards down the beach where the water is rock free. We spent one afternoon canoeing on the lagoon at the rear of the property, Plenty of bird life to be seen and we even had a fish jump in one of our canoes. Room wise the villa suited our needs perfectly being a large mixed group of adults but there is only one large double room, The other double and twin rooms are fine but not that big. The pool is lovely as well. Will return again in a couple of years.

Wonderful visit to Sri Lanka!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic beach house! We are a British family of 4 with children aged 13 and 11. It is the most breathtaking location, right on the beach and perfect in every way. Traditional in style, the house has plenty of space and was spotlessly clean. The kids appreciated the beach, the beautiful pool and the hammocks, dotted all around the garden! The house staff are amazing, the food was better than the two local restaurants we tried (and wished we hadn't bothered with!). They were kind, efficient, friendly and discreet, we felt like we were visiting family! Upal was incredible and was a tour guide as well as a careful driver. Would recommend using him as the driving on the island is nothing short of crazy!

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay, albeit very short, as we ventured to Tangalle for just one week at half term. The only down side to this property was the awfully long transfer from Colombo. Even using the new Expressway to Galle it was still a five hour slog (our flight arrived at 0430 so I guess it could be an even longer journey in rush hour?!). I gather there is a new airport coming to the south of the island and this would be a better bet than Colombo once it opens sometime in 2013. With hindsight I wished we had booked the Sri Lankan air taxi to Dickwella which is only about 10km up the road. I think the fare is about US120 per person but it would have been worth it! Next time!

A beautiful place that I have no issues in recommending to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing stay in paradise. Would love to return.

Fantastic stay at Muhudu Niwasa

  • 5 of 5

We - two families (4 adults and 9 children) from the Netherlands - stayed for 9 days at the house. And we had a fantastic time!

The house is great. Nice rooms and clean! The garden is wonderful and the view is of course very, very nice.

The staff is very nice and helpful. The cook Sarath makes superb meals, we enjoyed it very, very much. We already had seen a lot before we arrived at Tangalla, but we have done some very nice daytrips from Tangalla. Like Yala Park (not more than 1,5 hour driving), Mulkirigala and Galle).

I'm sure that next guests will also enjoy their stay!

Superb beachfront estate

  • 4 of 5

It's always slightly worrying, turning up at a property only previously glimpsed on a web page with perhaps a handful of independent reviews. After a long journey, the worry increases to near hysteria, yet I'm happy to say all fears were banished the moment we arrived at Muhudu Niwasa.

The setting is quite simply, superb. An immaculately tended 2 acre plot overlooking the crashing waves and miles of beautiful beach. The house is simple and very much in keeping with the surroundings; lots of natural wood ceilings and floors, a stunning first floor terrace; the whole blending in perfectly with the surroundings. After two days we felt as though we had been away two weeks. After three weeks we were thoroughly assimilated, utterly relaxed and genuinely sad to leave.

The staff are all wonderfully obliging, informative, helpful and discreet. We ate magnificently, courtesy of Sarath's consistently high standards and opted for dinners in the cabana on some nights, others on the terrace. Mostly we were all (4 adults and 4 children ) content to hang around the house and beach without any great need to venture outside, Eventually when guilt took over, we took an afternoon trip to Yala Park and an evening visit to watch turtles but ultimately the simple charms of the property, the fabulous new swimming pool, the never ending drama of waves crashing onto the beach meant we stayed put. That's the best testimony to the property I can make. That and my hyperactive wife stating it was quite the most relaxing holiday she had ever had.

I have absolutely no doubt that we will return.
