Me and my mum stayed here the first week of September, and upon walking in our first words were WOW! The house itself is beautiful inside and out and has been decorated tastefully highlighting the Sri Lankan art and cultures.
The pool stretches from inside the main room downstairs out into the beautiful walled garden, allowing you to escape inside from the heat - and the brisk thunder storms!
It is a quiet retreat if you prefer to be away from the hustle and bustle of the hotel, only a stones throw away from a gorgeous beach. Yes - the trains the pass woke me up on the first night -but after that I got so used to them they didn't bother me. This is the case wherever you stay down the coast because the tracks run all the way down the coastline.
The owners also have apartments opposite if you wanted a more villa type experience which are equally as amazing.
There is a room upstairs at the top of the house where you can go and lounge in as well as downstairs, the view is unbelievable.
It is very clean and quiet providing a very relaxing atmosphere.
I would definatly recommend and go back to this house, both me and my mum had a fantastic week!
