Everything we hoped it would be. Luxurious, clean and quiet location.
A great place to stay if you prefer quiet locations that are in reach of more touristy spots. Our hosts John and Marylin were perfect and helpful and keen to make our stay memorable. They even stocked the fridge for us to avoid a supermarket run. They are a bit of a celebrity in the village and have useful local knowledge for restaurants and trips and taxis. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We travelled there straight from the airport. On reflection it would have been the perfect place to end our travelling around type holiday for 3 to 5 days. Having a great pool and a beautiful beach close by is perfect for a chilled out time. The value for money is outstanding and I'm told doesn't change for peak season so book now before someone else does.
Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family.
three months in Sri Lanka
We just spent three months in this villa.
03 January to 31 of March 2018
Everything was OK as the description on the web .
If you have a bike this is a good place,or take a tuktuk.
I think Siri is the key man.
We asked him to take us around all over and was always ready for us.
I recommande this villa
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review.
Siri's motto - also printed on his tuk tuk - is 'YES I CAN"
and he is always helpful and reliable.
Lovely property in a great location with a beautiful pool and very helpful and knowledgeable owners!
First time visit to Sri Lanka and this stay did not disappoint. The villa is situated in Balipitiya, just outside of the more touristy area of Hikkaduwa, but very close to some absolute gems. The Madhu River safari is a must, finished off with a beautiful evening meal at Bord'eau, run by the very friendly Lalith. The owners of the property are both helpful and knowledgeable and their local employee, Sirimal, is an excellent tour guide. The property itself is large, very clean and nicely decorated throughout, with a very large and well maintained pool in the garden. This has been an excellent holiday, I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the South of Sri Lanka.
Really enjoyed our stay. The location is great...so easy to get around just by hopping on and off the local busses that run along the main road a few minutes walk from the Villa.
The pool is fabulous,the garden is so relaxing to sit in and very entertaining..full of wildlife and we were frequently entertained by the families of monkeys swinging from the trees..We swam at night in the floodlit pool as the magical fireflies flitted around us.
The villa is immaculate and the beds very comfortable.
The nearest beach was stunning and we had it all to ourselves .
Belapitya is a lovely little village to soak up some local culture and the market there is great to stock up on fruit and veg if you're self catering. Sirimel took us to the supermarket on our first day where you can buy everything you need. He was very helpful and a really nice guy.
Thank you John and Marilyn for sharing your beautiful villa with us. We would definitely return.
Thank you for the lovely review.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that Sirimal looked after you so well.
I look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
We all really enjoyed our stay at balapitiya john & Marilyn where very helpful showing us where the good restaurants are and arranging transport if we needed. Great place to go exploring from
It was a pleasure - we really enjoyed your company and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Amazing For a Family Holiday
The villa was spacious and clean. The garden and pool lovely and well kept. Serimal who looks after the property does a great job, he couldn't be more helpful, his English is excellent and his knowledge of Sri Lanka and the best places to visit is invaluable.
We visited Sri Lanka as a family of 7 + a baby and were worried that we would be on top of each other but the villa had more than enough space. We had an amazing time and will hopefully be back again in the future.
We are very pleased you had a good time.
Hopefully we will see you again in the future.
