About Jan and Agneta
After many years working and living in Asian and European countries we are now back in Sweden. We have two daughters with families and kids.
Jan and Agneta purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Jan and Agneta chose Wadduwa
When we lived and worked in Sri Lanka in the mid 90th's we became very fond of the people and the country. Ever since, we have travelled back. Together with 3 other families we purchased land and built our own holiday home. The location was very much decided because, it is on the beach, not too far from Colombo but still on the fantastic west coast.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Ad Astra is a place for relaxing, swimming, walking / jogging and when you feel for it depart for tours to the south, to the mountains or to Colombo. Our family and grand kids loves it here and the village elephant can be asked to come to the villa for an exclusive ride!

Fantastic villa with excellent service

Thank you for your kind words.

A perfect place for a family holiday with lots of privacy and excellent service!
This was our third stay at Villa Ad Astra and it felt like coming home. The service of Thilak and his staff is excellent. The house is decorated with taste and the furniture is of very good quality. The pool is huge and cleaned everyday. Furthermore the property is very safe being surrounded by a wall and having 24hr security. It is an aussum place if you are looking for a place with lots of privacy, space and very friendly staff. It is like in a hotel but 1000x better. We feel very happy to be able to spend our holidays in such a paradise. Thank you!
Thank you Nicole for your kind and nice words. Looking forward to have you back again.
With best regards
Agneta and Jan
A lovely house that is spacious, comfortable and clean. Thilak and his team were excellent, provided delicious meals and catered quietly and efficiently to our every need. The outside area and pool are equally lovely.
Galle, the tsunami museum and sea turtles are all worth visiting.
Good supermarket in the village.
There are better beaches in Sri Lanka so probably not the place if you want a beach stay but otherwise I would highly recommend this place.
Thank you for your nice words and your stay.

Beautiful Villa in Stunning Location
A beautiful villa, in a wonderful location with amazing grounds, which are well maintained by a the gardening team, a fabulous pool and lovely tennis court. The house staff keep the house immaculate and cater for your every need. We stayed here for 4 weeks in July and used this villa as a base to explore. We enjoyed trips to Yala National Park, whale watching, turtle hatchery, temples, boat trips, Columbo, Galle and even managed to watch some test match cricket in Galle. We enjoyed many lovely strolls along the beach and enjoyed chatting to the locals. The nearest station is 10 mins walk away so we took advantage of the super rail system on some of our trips and other times we used a driver called Indy who was very knowledgable and a very safe driver. Our hosts were helpful with all our questions and queries. Thank you Jan and Agneta for sharing your beautiful home.
Thank you very much for your nice words. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and wish you back again in the future.

We would like to thank you for our stay in your beautiful house.
Very relaxing, we took pleasure in sitting on the terrace or reading near the pool.
Thilak and the 2 women prepared us good dishes according to our tastes. Also very good pancakes for my children.
I will recommend this address to some of my friends and hope to come again in the future

Fabulous place to stay..
This is a fantastic place to holiday if you want to relax in beautiful surroundings and not have a care in the world. The villa is great, big rooms and really comfy, loads of seating outside and in to sit and read or just chill out with a drink. The kitchen appeared to have everything you need but to be honest Mr Thilak just does everything and anything for you so you rarely have to go in there. He is there with fresh tea when you wake, makes breakfast and is in and out throughout the day making sure you want for nothing. Then comes dinner, wow, Sri Lankan cuisine at its best. He makes awesome devilled prawns and great curries with the help of the two ladies, who needs lots of restaurants, you feel like you're in one every Evening! Our kids tried everything and loved it all but Thilak went out of his way to accomodate them, making them fried chicken & fries, fresh pancakes for breakfast & stocked up with ice cream etc when it was running low. After our safari trip our kids couldn't wait to get back to see Thilak! Sitting outside relaxing on the terrace, listening to the sea in such beautiful surroundings, next to a lovely, large pool.....heaven. if you want to travel and explore then there is lots to see, we took a trip to Yala for a jeep safari which was a great experience, seeing elephants up so close in their natural habitat is magical. Be warned though, it's a 5.30am Start! Because of this we travelled the day before and stayed over in a hotel near Yala (The rain tree) which was very nice and great value. Opul, the tuk tuk driver next door to the villa arranged everything and took us. Never had such a relaxing holiday or been so well looked after. Thank you, we will return one day as there is so much more we want to see.
Ps the weather in August was great, we had one shower in two weeks and a constant 28°, perfect...kids were really happy & safe in the pool. Added bonus the security guard & gardener were always around & made the whole holiday more relaxing as we felt so safe & secure.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are truly happy that you enjoyed our villa and great team. Looking forward to receive you again in the future.
