Overview
Holiday Rental House -
6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
Hikkaduwa, Galle District, Southern Province
The house is located just fifteen minutes walk from the beach at Kumara Kanda, just south of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, in the South West of Sri Lanka. It provides you with a very comfortable base from where to enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkelling, fishing or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine! After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax around an open fire with a seafood BBQ or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see local fishermen hauling in their catch, or later on at night, a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own holiday villa in Hikkaduwa and take everything at your own pace. For the duration of your holid... Read more

Had a fantastic weeks stay at this house, only 10 mins to the main beach road in Hikkaduwa. Such a peaceful place to relax away from the noise of the main road beachside properties. The owner was very friendly and helped me with booking some local trips at a much better price than offered by local tourist agents. Looking forward...

While some would really love this rustic and rural place and location, I was disappointed. A long walk to a beach that is not swimmable, according to locals. We had to catch buses or tuk-tuks to get to a beach where we could swim. Outside dining and living is fine, but not if there are no fans to keep cool...

There is a very nice Sunday veggie market in town, just by the train station.ç
