Holiday Rental House
Nestled on a hilltop in the midst of a lush, tropical garden and immaculately kept coconut plantation, The Teak House is one of Sri Lanka's South Coast's most romantic and serene villa hideaways. If you are seeking complete privacy or even solitude within moments of an unspoilt Indian Ocean beach, The Teak House offers luxury and privacy in equal measure. From its elevated position overlooking Seenimodera beach, the villa's vast bedrooms and open plan living benefit from the constant breezes coming from the Indian Ocean below. Hidden from view, the villa, constructed entirely of teak - one of Sri Lanka's sustainable hardwoods - is relaxed and incredibly comfortable.

If you are seeking complete privacy or even solitude within moments of an unspoilt Indian Ocean beach, The Teak House offers luxury and privacy in equal measure. From its elevated position overlooking Seenimodera beach, the villa's vast bedrooms and open plan living benefit from the constant breezes coming from the Indian Ocean below. Hidden from view, the villa, constructed entirely of teak - one of Sri Lanka's sustainable hardwoods - is relaxed and incredibly comfortable. Lying in one of the six foot, four poster beds, wreathed in fine white mosquito nets, you can see and hear the constant rhythm of the Indian Ocean. Completed in September 2014, The Teak House now offers a truly beautiful infinity pool. Swim in the shadow of coconut trees and watch the waves crashing on the beach below. After a long time (as they say in Sri Lanka), the new pool is heavenly - for those who want to do their laps or those who simply want to raise an evening cocktail in the cool of the water. Enjoy. Planted with an exotic collection of wonderful tropical flora, The Teak House garden has become a haven for a stunning collection of tropical birds. Woodpecker, peacocks, birds of paradise, kingfisher and the busy chit chat birds luxuriate in its lush profusion. Sea eagles hover above and, as dusk falls and a dark tropical night descends, fireflies light up the sky. Renowned as one of the Sri Lanka's most picturesque and unspoilt sandy beaches, Seenimodera offers safe swimming all year round and incomparable walking. Stroll across to neighbouring Mahawella beach, a horseshoe shaped bay of over 3 km, long celebrated by CN Traveller magazine. More

About the neighbourhood
Renowned as one of the Sri Lanka's most picturesque and unspoilt sandy beaches, Seenimodera offers safe swimming all year round and incomparable walking. Stroll across to neighbouring Mahawella beach, a horseshoe shaped bay of over 3 km, long celebrated by CN Traveller magazine. If you are tired of lying in a hammock or fed up of boogie boarding in the Indian Ocean, you can reach the following diversions with great ease: Mulgirigalla Rock Temple Situated 35 minutes north of Tangalle, Mulgirigalla is a monastic site on an isolated 210m-high rock which rises almost vertically out of the surrounding forest.
