TYPE: 3 Private en-suite bedroom with air-con, hot water, internet, cook facility and balcony.We have total 3 rooms in Villa Jacana. Please look at our other listing to book individual room in Villa.
About the Property:
Twin villas, Jacana & Kingfisher each with 3 bedrooms with beach front. Ideal for relaxing, available on room basis or as a whole.
The two villas are named Kingfisher and Jacana. Each Villa has three double rooms with en-suite shower and toilet in each room. All, but one room faces the sea. Originally designed to be an escape from the stress of Colombo for the owners, the villas permit a more relaxed and private holiday without the formality of most hotels. One can choose ones own menu with the Chef, or even watch and learn how he makes a great curry. There are two butler staff to attend to guests needs, but they are discreet. There are plenty of places on the one acre property to simply hide away and finish that book.
Ideal for a group of friends or two families holidaying together, or available as single rooms. The Chef can whip up a BBQ party on request with one of the Catamarans providing the catch of the day.
The Villas contain some wonderful antique Dutch and Jaffna furniture. Sit down on the old mahogony desk and bang out that best seller with a Gin and Tonic in hand? The prints on the walls depict a Ceylon of a bygone era.
About the Space:
Five of the six rooms are sea facing and look out onto wonderful views of the Catamarans on the horizon and spectacular sunsets.
All the rooms have air conditioners and fans, though you may find that the ocean breeze suffices.The bedrooms are simply styled with four poster beds dressed in inviting crisp white cotton bed linen. Each room contains a modern ensuite wet room with shower (one with a bath).
About the staff & food:
Flexibility is one of the great advantages of staying at Jacana Villa .There are two single beds that can be moved for those who dont want to be in a double bed; cots can be arranged or extra day-beds put into rooms.The ground floor bedroom in Kingfisher has good wheel chair access and is the only wetroom with a bath, which can be helpful with young kids.
As the owners have five children under nine years of age the staff are particularly sensitive to families traveling with children. Should the kids want plain pasta that is fine, while the parents can sit down to a slow roast lamb or devilled lobster.
There is internet access in both Villas. Jacana has a TV/DVD, with a small library of books and films.
