Guestbook comments from the owner

"villa de rêve pour des vacances inoubliables"



"The old lady at the sea" est une villa merveilleuse idéalement située ,au bord d'une plage désertique de touristes mais très proche de la ville de Galle, ville très authentique Jan 2014



The Best villa in Sri-Lanka"



We were there for 5 days. Big group of friends - 16 people.

It was excellent spending time. Very good personal under manager Siri.

We liked perfect concept of cooking food bought yourself. Jan 2014



"Perfect for extended families & groups of friends"



The villa is even better than its website promises. The beach is virtually private and features soft sand, no rocks, a good surf, and an idyllic view of palm trees and fishing boats. The staff is excellent . Dec 2014



We started off in a small group of 12 growing to a max number of 24 pax. Age ranging from 8 to 79 years' old! Stayed for 9 nights and wished it was more...

A totally relaxing and serene area beach . Dec 2014
