Large indoor lounge area with double folding doors leading to an outdoor seating area for 6 (the rear Ambalama) with ceiling fans and lighting, leading to the rear garden. The living area comprises of 3 x 3-seater sofa's & table and has 3 ceiling fans in the room plus the new addition of an A/C unit for your use during the evenings. Computer desk with chair is available for your use as is a portable 15' DVD player. The L shape of the lounge has a 6-seater dining table & stools for indoor dining. Board games and books are also available. WiFi included.
This 30ft fully fitted luxury kitchen has all essentials... cooker, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee machine, drinks blender - all items you or the Cook would need! A 12 ft island sits in the middle of the kitchen of which 6ft is a breakfast bar.
The villa is cleaned daily throughout. The housekeeper and cook live at the property in their own accommodation attached to the side of the villa and the remaining staff attend daily.
Ceiling fans are provided in every room and in most cases, after an initial blast of A/C in the bedrooms at night, the ceiling fans are a much better option... the air conditioning gets quite cold whereas the ceiling fans maintain a more constant cool temperature!
We have listened to our previous guests and taken on board their recommendations to improve the villa. In June 2015 we installed an Air Conditioning unit in the lounge which is available for use during the evening. We had previously only used fans as there are many windows in this room and some large vents through the brick but we have closed these off using additional window frames to prevent the cold air from the A/C unit escaping. The unit in this room is a timed unit to work between 5.30pm and 11.30pm as it is not needed during the day. The windows are opened each morning and the use of the 3 ceiling fans are very effective. The added benefit of the A/C in the lounge in the evening is a welcome upgrade, particularly for families with young children who spend more time at the villa than the beach, especially at night.
In addition to the 34ft private swimming pool, the grounds comprise of 2 Ambalama's... outdoor covered seating areas! In the main garden the Ambalama overlooks the pool and garden and has 2 ceiling fans and lighting and 2 power sockets. Inside the Ambalama is a huge cushioned seating area which can seat a minimum of 12 people or 6 comfortably lounging/lying down! An outdoor dining table and chairs are also provided for those wonderful meals overlooking the landscaped gardens and pool. One guest described this area as stepping onto the set of Alice in Wonderland having drank the shrinking potion! At the rear of the villa, accessed through the double folding doors of the lounge, the French windows in the master bedroom or the kitchen is a 2nd Ambalama with 3 further wooden recliner chairs. Both area's have lighting and ceiling fans and power sockets.
The private 34ft swimming pool is 6ft in the deep end and 3ft in the shallow end and is professionally cleaned. Available for you to use by the pool are 4 plastic sun loungers, 2 hammocks and 3 wooden recliner chairs.

About Tracy and Andy Bishop
Daisy Lanka is a family owned property, which was renovated and furnished for our own use. We have carefully peeled back the layers and rebuilt the villa starting from scratch. Living in Abu Dhabi, Sri Lanka is a short 4 hour flight and having holidayed in Sri Lanka every year since 2005, we finally took the plunge and bought a property in 2011. We had travelled around many areas of Sri Lanka and fell in love with Mirissa as soon as we arrived there and knew this was the place for us. We hope you will find that it has a slightly more personal touch. We have a 14 year old daughter who has travelled with us throughout our many visits to Sri Lanka as well as a 21 year old son, both of which absolutely love Mirissa, the house and the area, but specifically, the pool & the beach!
Tracy and Andy Bishop purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Tracy and Andy Bishop chose Mirissa
Once we had decided to buy a property and decided on the South Coast, the rest came pretty easily. We saw many houses but this was the first and we instantly fell in love with it. Our Realtor told us to visit the beach in the evening and we felt like we had been transported to the set of Peter Pan as we walked along the beach. We had never seen fireflies before and there they were, dancing before our eyes, floating around, so colourful & majestic! You really have to see them to believe them!The relaxed atmosphere and the fact that the beach was totally non-commercial both during the day and at night made us feel a million miles from home. The palm fringed beach with guest houses and bars set back on the beach almost made us feel like we were on a deserted island. We were sold!
What makes this Villa unique
Whilst most of Sri Lanka is very basic, we purposefully designed and renovated Daisy Lanka to provide a luxury villa at all levels! The villa is truly a 5 minute from the stunning golden sands of Mirissa beach, where surfing and body boarding lays await in abundance. Whale and dolphin watching in Mirissa is one of the most exciting water activities you can do in Sri Lanka during your holiday. Mirissa is the best place to start your whale and dolphin watching tour in Sri Lanka. In warm Indian ocean you can see Blue whales, Sperm whales, Fin whales, sometimes Killer whales, and Common dolphins, Bottlenose dolphins, Spinner dolphins, Risso's dolphins and Striped dolphins. Sometimes you can see turtles and various fish species, for example Bluefin tuna and flying fish.
