“Gorgeous location and Villa. ”
Reviewed 12 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Amazing tall and airy Villa with an almost private beach (barely any people on it, so doesn't matter), decent sized lounge pool, fully stocked living room and spacious rooms. Great place Dom, keep it up and thanks for having us !

“Our best holiday”
Reviewed 1 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Fantastic stay at Moonstone Villa. Amazingly private villa with its own secluded pool & then a few steps to a mostly-deserted beach. We travelled with 3 young kids who had a great time.
Dom & his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. While it has all the facilities to self-cater, we ended up using the chef every night who cooked amazing meals at very reasonable cost. We also used a tour company & tuktuk driver Dom had recommended for day trips & transport, all who were fantastic as well.
The only minor negative would be the proximity to & noise from the relatively busy Galle Road which the property was located on. However, while we noticed the noise, it was comparable to the noise from the waves crashing on the beach, so we didn't find it to be a huge problem for us.
I would highly recommend this villa & would love to stay again.

“amazing!!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

wonderful villa, wonderful staff on a lovely beach with a beautiful pool!!! can't fault this villa, only wish we could have stayed longer but we had an amazing time here & would highly recommend getting a tuk tuk (which they provide) to unawatuna beach as there is a lovely stretch of little shops and restaurants there and galle fort (another amazing place, full of lovely little lanes of cafes and shops) these are both so nearby, only a short tuk tuk ride away which makes the location of the villa. - the tuk tuk drivers we had, a father and son, we're so lovely and the english of the staff is exceptional !! you could easily never leave this villa and have a great holiday!! thank u so much to everyone who made our stay amazing (:

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed for 6 weeks over april and may 2016. Dom's communication whilst booking was excellent and he even helped to organise our transfers from the airport. The villa is lovely and sits on a fantastic quiet beach, the pool is relatively small, but is excellent for young children. Dom and all the staff were brilliant and made us feel incredibly welcome, chef in particular was great - especially with fussy children!
The villa is about 10 minutes in a tuktuk from galle and although you can hear the road, it didnt bother us at all. Buses are also every couple of minutes and incredibly cheap.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and wouldn't hesitate to go back!

“Fabulous vacation rental near Galle, Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 4 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We just got back from a wonderful 6 weeks at the Moonstone Villa! The property is right on the beach, about 10 minutes to Galle via tuk tuk, has a great dipping pool, fully equipped kitchen, security, daily housekeeping and chef! Honestly we had planned to do our own cooking, however our rental price included breakfasts and if we wanted we could have the chef cook lunch and dinner....it didn't take long and we had chef Nimal cooking almost every night for us! We had a couple of friends join us for two weeks and between the 4 of us we had a variety of dietary restrictions! Vegetarian, food allergies, gluten-free, dairy free etc. The chef was absolutely incredible stick handling through it all. The villa owners live a couple doors down the beach, warm and friendly hosts....with some great story telling! Dom is a writer and you've got to have a read of his adventures - really exciting. Tennis courts are about 10 minutes away at the Jetwing Lighthouse Resort. We bought a membership for the tennis, also enabled us to use the resort facilities if we wanted. Wifi and TV satellite, air conditioned. Pictures are a good reflection of the actual property. Best part of the whole stay was getting to know the staff and hosts, truly, all wonderful people.

“Outstanding holiday”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We travelled to Sri Lanka in a large group of 4 families (14 people) and rented the Moonstone Villa as well as the property next door (same owner). I must say that this was one of the best vacations we had due to the outstanding service of the staff, travel to and from the Colombo airport, the beautiful accommodation and the lovely people of Sri Lanka. We had a fleet of Tuk Tuk drivers (loosely affiliated with the villa - deal with the brothers) who arranged all our local transportation, even picking up beverages, food and snacks as required. When we arrived we had a small issue with the A/C but it was handled immediately and without issue. The chef prepared delicious food at a very nominal rate. Overall I would rate this accommodation top marks and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to this region.

“Super relaxing”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We spent 6 nights in Moonstone Villa at the start of our 5 weeks in Sri Lanka. The villa is perfect for a family, well equipped, spacious and in a great location. The staff are wonderfully accommodating and all of the food we had prepared by the chef was delicious (the kids menu was a bonus for our fussy eater). The back of the villa opens up to the plunge pool and the beach where we spend our evenings watching the sun set over the water and the fishermen prepare their boats to go out for the night. We were happy to be so close to Galle and made the most of the villa's tuk tuk driver. The only downside is that it is located on a busy road so if you are a light sleeper like me the sound of traffic starts around 6am. This did not seem to bother anyone else in the family and getting up early meant that I was able to enjoy the beach with the locals. I would recommend Moonstone Villa for a family or 2 groups of couples or friends. For us it was the perfect introduction to Sri Lanka
