Holiday Rental House
Turn off the main Colombo Road one kilometre before Galle and just 400 metres from the beach is Gin Ganga House, standing on two acres of lush land surrounded by the Gin Ganga River and Mahamodera Lake on three sides. There are spectacular views from Mahamodera Watte. Look across the lake and watch the Kingfisher zoom past with his latest catch or the Sea Eagle soar to meet it's prey. Stroll around two acres of garden full of exotic fruits like Mango, Paw Paw, Banana, Avocado and more. The beach is just 3 minutes walk from the house or you can visit Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa for restaurants on the beach. Dine in the dining room; on the terrace; by the pool or in the Fisherman's Hut beside the lake. Wave at the local fisherman and maybe buy some go his freshly caught prawns for lunch.The pool...Turn off the main Colombo Road one kilometre before Galle and just 400 metres from the beach is Gin Ganga House, standing on two acres of lush land surrounded by the Gin Ganga River and Mahamodera Lake on three sides.
