This review is quite overdue. Visited Talpe in March 2016. Stayed only for two nights but we wished we could stay for more:
Hospitality: the couple who own and run this place are very friendly and welcoming. They truly made us feel welcome in their lovely home.
Food: Breakfast is included. Expect authentic and lip smacking home cooked Sri Lankan breakfast. Missing it should be considered a crime.
Villa & Amenities: Its quite new. It looks very contemporary and has been decorated nicely. Some funky touches like a partly open bathroom give it some added functionality. Be ware of the fact that there is no AC though.
Location: Just off the main road and quite close to Talpe beach. Partying at Unnawatuna & roaming around Galle wouldn't be too much of travel if you stay here.
Overall: Would recommend no matter the budget!
Overall: Would recommend this
The Summer Dew Villa has proved to be the best choice ever. The house is clean, nicely furnished, the bathrooms fullfil all the needs and the garden is well- maintained, too.
The half board service is rich,absolutely meets the personal requirements, Dinu's cuisine is heavenly great.
Our hosts were really kind hearted, open minded and good willing people.
Ravi and Dinu are quite proud of their culture and have the tendency to share it and show the everyday life of the inhabitants with pleasure as well.
They are very good at organising excursions, sightseeings and very reliable company, at a reasonable price.
We offer them for those who want to get to know Shri Lanka and feel safe.
Ravi and Dinu welcomed us and were our company as old friends of ours.
Contrary to the huge distance from home it was like being at home.
We stayed in Summer dew villa for 8 days and it was great. It was very friendly and comfortable. Ravi and Dinu was very good hosts. Rooms was clean and stylish . Beakfasts was delicious and the last day dinner..... it was super.Everything was just great. Highly recommended to stay too Summer dew villa.
We stayed in Summer dew villa for two nights to explore Galle and Talpe surroundings, and got to say it was perfect decision to choose Summer dew villa! Like mentioned, Ravi and Dinu are absolutely perfect hosts providing personal service and treatin g you like a family member.
Room was modern and most beautiful we have had so far in Sri Lanka with very clean and stylish bathroom. Building itself is very charming, modern white guest house with only few rooms, so it is very intimate and family feeling resort to stay in. Wifi is exceptionally reliable and fast here.
Only thing which still could be improved, is the food - Waiting times very quite long, but unfortunately this seems to be the case everywhere in Sri Lanka and Ravi and Dinu are really doing their best in this manner too.
Highly recommended, book Summer dew villa and you will most definitely not be disappointed!
My friends and I stayed at Summer Dew Villa for 3 weeks in February and loved it!!! Ravi and Dinu (wonderful hosts indeed) made our stay enjoyable and really went the extra mile to look after us.
The rooms themselves are very cosy with fast internet connection, we truly felt like home straight away. Included breakfast (different every day) was a very nice touch - plus: you must try Dinu's rice & curry (absolutely the best in the whole island!!!). Amazing Talpe beach within walking distance, Unawatuna beach just few stops by bus...
Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about travelling to Sri Lanka and is looking for a special place to stay!
Fantastic hosts - one of the best we've had in Sri Lanka ! Ravi and Dinu were very warm, friendly and helpful. Their hospitality really made our experience in Talpe a memorable one.
The food here is awesome. We had the best breakfasts which changed every morning !
Our room was spatious, spotless and modern. The neighbourhood is quiet and very safe.
It was a pleasure to spend time at Summer Dew Villa ! This place is fantastic, you won't be disappointed !
