“wonderful beach holiday”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

+ Lovely spot with a great view over the sea, beautiful swimming pool, comfortable AC rooms with en suite bathrooms this was really a plus as we were 4 couples.

Long and large beach in front of the villa where we could swim and play ball

Great food cooked by the chief, many choices sri lankan food, Chinese, BBQ, different everyday so finally we had all our meals there as it was for reasonable prices too.

Wifi working very well even in the bedroom

Only minus is no credit card payment on the site but it was not an issue as matara city is only few minutes away

So overall a fantastic holiday we strongly recommend the place

“Fantastic holiday in paradise”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

It is the perfect location for a beach holiday. On our arrival we were very impressed by the amazing panoramic view, the deserted beach, the immaculate pool, the beautiful tropical garden, the beautiful house well arranged, the nice people and specially the quietness. The house is surrounded by nature, no road noise. It was so easy to move around there are tuktuks parked all the time on main road and the city is near, we had some great shopping better than anywhere else in Sri Lanka. Baghia brought to us some meals that we have ordered from their menu, it was so cheap and good comparing to other beaches where we have eaten. We finally find their take away system so much cheaper and easier than buying food and cook though there are groceries nearby few meters away. Their menu has a really big choice and we just needed to order one hour before, so we didn’t have to think about our food and just relax that is what I call a holiday! And such an incredible experience to have a beach for us alone while other touristic beaches in south coast are so crowded!

“exceptional place for a beach holiday”

Great great place really deserves a 5 stars review. Nothing to complain, just pity we didn’t stay more, we have done an organized trip before and stayed there only 4 nights that is not enough.
Sri lanka is a nice country to discover but this place is really exceptional. Difficult to find as much unspoilt beach anywhere else in this world but still so easy to reach and move around as it is near the city of Matara. Best beach we found in sri Lanka. If you are a nature lover should not hesitate to book immediately.

“Amazing outside, tired inside”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I've struggled to know what to say on this property. We wavered between 3 and four. I don't think we have any regrets staying there but I think it is fair to say we didn't think , on balance, the description was accurate. We have put our comments as follows:

Positives:
The outside is truly wonderful. They have a beautiful garden, beautiful pool and the direct access to the beach. The beach is truly glorious- it was busy when there were eight other people there (at the other end of a mile long section) and you truly felt you had your own paradise. The pool was also great and it was wonderful looking out over the beach from the pool. The housekeeping was great and it was very easy to get transport from the villa.

Negatives:
I don't feel the description is fair. We only ever saw two bedrooms. I believe the third was on the ground level BUT due to way the house is laid out we could never have used the third. Essentially you have the garden, a ground floor loo and outside dining area, a third bedroom (it was a locked door) and then stairs up to a lockable first floor. Ie a flat. As such we couldn't have used the third room as it would have meant one of the children, or us, in a room with separate access. In the end the boys, not used to sharing a bed , woke up every night and we ended up splitting and sharing rooms with the kids.

The owners the live on the top floor in a flat. I actually think the layout could be great for some people - you could have teenagers or grandparents on the ground floor and I think they should sell this way. I think they have focused on selling it as a villa which I dont feel is truly accurate- you don't lock separate bits of a villa. I also think saying "food available" is somewhat disingenuous. I was hoping to be able to order local food; essentially there is a Chinese menu (and i understand Chinese food is very embedded) that you can order off and have a takeaway.....I would prefer to be able to order sri lankan curries to noodles and I think the description should say takeaways available in case other people make same presumptions.

I am still confused as to what to say in summary. I think it is a great outdoors, a less great indoors but I think my biggest gripe is the description. There is lots to sell with the outdoors; it is a truly amazing place BUT they need to explain how the house works more. If we had turned up with three small children it would have been a nightmare. That said I cannot rave enough about the deserted beach and the happiness we had in sitting in the pool overlooking the beach.

This review of 2015 doesn't describe anymore our place. We have done full renovation, and keep the villa maintained, to have a best holiday in our exceptional location.

We are renting the full villa with exclusive use for your group. There is staff always on site: a manager, a cook, a house maid and a night guard to care about your needs.

Our food service also has been improved: you can choice food from our menu, made from fresh ingredients (no take away available) or buy ingredients and our cook will prepare it.

Owners can be contact at anytime by phone, email...
