We loved the Lake House - with two young kids it was the perfect escape with wonderful views, calm and peaceful sounds of birds and other animals and fantastic food and staff. Would highly recommend it - much nicer even than the pictures. Close enough to beaches and great to be on the lake and have beaches close as well.

What an amazing find! We have had such a relaxing stay in such a wonderful setting. Waking up to the view of the lake each morning has been a luxury in itself. Perfectly located for any of the beaches with just a short tuktuk ride away. The boat ride on the lake organised by the amazingly helpful, kind and attentive...

A marvellous tranquil spot within easy reach of all the local tourist attractions. An extremely comfortable house in a beautiful location with fabulous staff and the most delicious food prepared by Chatura the chef aided admirably by the houseman Dikman and his houseboy Bartu over seen by the manager Ranga for whom no request was beyond his reach to organise....

About the neighbourhood
The area near Galle in southern Sri Lanka is one of the prettiest and most popular destinations in Sri Lanka. The pace of life is different, the food is good and the people are delightful. The coast is relatively unspoiled and Galle Fort has been carefully protected to maintain its historic buildings and atmosphere. For those interested in wildlife, Yala national park is not too far away with plenty of game: elephant and leopard in particular. But, even if you just stay at the Lake House, all manner of wildlife will cross your path from giant porcupine to monitor lizards, and the monkeys swing through the trees next to the house and, much to our annoyance, sit on our roof. (its annoying because they can break the tiles!)
