    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Great eco holiday. Restored 1910 plantation house with five bedrooms. Includes billiard room, games room with board games, library with over 1,000 reference texts and thrillers. WiFi and iPod docking station. Telescope for astronomy enthusiasts. Bicycles for touring local rice paddies and tea plantations.

    Close to beach (within 10 minutes, just over one kilometre) but inland, avoiding the commercialism and noise often associated with beach stays but close enough to come and go when you choose. Within easy reach of whale and dolphin watching, tea plantations, and many historic sites.

    Fresh organic milk and milk products (including curd, yoghurt, ice cream, cream cheeses) available daily. Fresh mushrooms and fruit grown (seasonally) on property.

    Excellent guest reviews. Close to a...

Sri Mathie Villa is a wonderful place to stay while on vacation in the south of Sri Lanka. Or even a one night pit stop, while heading elsewhere on your trip. This beautifully, renovated tea plantation home is also a working farm. David, the owner/manager, can tour you around and show you the rubber tree grove, where the trees are... more

Sri Mathie is a wonderful old house that has been lovingly restored by the owners. My room was in the 'new wing' but you'd never know it was an addition. It melded into the original house perfectly. I intended to go to the beach daily, exercise, and get some work done, but the minute I sat down in the planter's... more
