to feel space, tranquility and nature...
Nestled in the middle of a large lush garden with sprawling trees and picturesque scenery, our villa is only a 15 minutes drive from Galle Town, the most well-known coastal city in Southern Sri Lanka. Deliberately designed to provide ample space and relaxed privacy for its guests, this is a newly- restored 18th century two-storied building which offers two large suites, each with a private swimming pool and a bath tub. The main house is surrounded by spacious verandahs opening out onto the terraced garden which gently slopes away from the house. Although hidden away, the ingenious planning of the original 18th century original owner (who's said to be a supplier of material to the Dutch Fortress construction) means that the position of building provides almost a lookout over the surrounding area. This suite -- Village Suite -- is a two roomed unit with a balcony overlooking the village. Surrounding jungle mountains are visible from the pool and faces west. The bedroom is air conditioned. Original old building was sympathetically restored in keeping with the history of this very old building, but with a modern emphasis on comfort, space and connection to nature. In a continuation of its heritage & is decorated with antique furniture from the Dutch period including large four poster beds. Time stands still as you enjoy the peaceful comfort and understated luxury of the rooms and the simple pleasures of being close to nature. Alternatively, Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away. (Please note that given its large balconies, staircases, and open swimming pool on the first floor, we regret that it is not able to accept guests with small children for safety reasons.) The famous "The Lighthouse Hotel" -- a masterpiece by the world renown Architect, Geoffrey Bawa -- and the beautiful beach just 10 minutes away. Wifi Meals can be ordered or a cook can be hired by prior arrangement. Breakfast included in the rates
Galle Town and the famous Dutch Fortress are easily close enough for exploring, shopping and dining -- 15 minutes by tuk tuk. The popular and renowned Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa beach is only 20 minutes away.
  • An oasis in the middle of nature. We had a huge room with a view of the sunrise. Just beautiful. In addition, the private pool with access from the bathroom left nothing to be desired.

  • The place of Sumudu & Denish is amazing. Densih helped us with the transfer from the airport after our arrival. Everything went completely smooth. The place itself was beyond everything we have expected. From the small private plunge you have a view through coconut and mango trees. The place offers a living room, a spacious veranda and a nice sleeping room. In short words if you want to stay in Galle, stay at their place you will never regret it.

  • Dinesh and Sumudu's place is gorgeous! Lots of space and it's clean and designed well. Swimming pool is amazing! Their family is sweet and warm welcoming. Dinesh was super friendly and helped with all questions we had. Also we were blown away by Sri Lankan breakfasts cooked by a nice lady. Also sometimes someone played by the piano La-la land theme in the evening. Such a romantic atmosphere! It was such a pleasure to stay in this place :) We enjoyed every minute spent in this lovely house. Extremely recommend!

  • A quiet, spacious and wonderful place in the nature where you can relax! The hosts are so friendly and helpful with everything! Was a wonderful time to end our trip in Sri Lanka!

  • The apt was not so easy to find but Sumudu gave our driver precise instructions so that we could get to our paradise destination quite quickly. We were warmly welcomed with cookies and a drink. What was somehow not so clear to us is that we had 2 rooms. A master bedroom with bath and shower and a "relax room" also with bath and connection to the pool. It was really unique. The house of the two is incredibly large and beautiful! We felt very very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! The two also had their own tuk tuk driver, which explained the way home. We wrote a what's app to Dinesha or Sumudu and a short time later the driver was there. Very nice and careful driving TukTuk driver We can only recommend this accommodation to everyone, it is pure luxury and relaxation. Thank you very much we will be back!

  • This stunning old property, restored by the owners and surrounded by trees, is amazing. Dinesh and Samudu couldn’t be more helpful, the breakfast is great and the pool at the back of the room is a very nice touch! We hope to return!

    Andrew2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed as a couple for 5 nights in this charming property. When we arrived we were more than overwhelmed by the beauty of this property. The location is just outside of Galle, in the middle of a tropical garden with a variety of animals, plant fruits and spices. It was a pleasure for us to walk through the garden with Dinesh and Sumudu and to admire the biodiversity. The accommodation is many times more beautiful than in the photos. The private pool is wonderfully cool (the pool is actually on the roof). The room had an air conditioning system, but we hardly used it because the temperature was very pleasant. Dinesh is a superhost who really organizes everything, transfer from the airport to Katagerama, Tuck Tuck everywhere in the vicinity, to the beach .... The breakfast was sensationally delicious and every day there was something different ... delicious, Dinesh tried very hard to serve us something different for dinner ... there was absolutely nothing that could have been better .. many thanks for that wonderful days with you .. with kind regards Angelika and Klaus

    **New from November 2019: 14x6 foot Plunge pool! ** For those who love the sea, but like a quiet space to relax in away from the crowds and take in the beautiful nature this area has to offer. The self catering apartment is nestled in amongst cinnamon fields and jungle at the end of a residential road in Hikkaduwa. A short scooter ride or pleasant stroll to the beach.
    One of four celf-catering properties on the same site. The apartment is equipped with.. Fitted kitchen- fridge freezer, gas hob and sink with all utensils, large breakfast bar with seating on terrace. Ac/fan bedroom with: desk and chair, large four-poster bed with mosquito net and wardrobe for clothes storage. Not over-looked which is great with our large windows! Bathroom with: Hot water bath/shower, sink and towel rail/towels. It is an amazing wildlife-spotting area and we have built a shady chill-out area in the garden with large barbeque so you can lie-back and watch the monkeys, birds and chipmunks. In addition to this we are now opening up our adjoining garden for guests to access our plunge pool! This is one of 4 apartments which are all slightly different- Bamboo, Jackfruit, Kurundu and Kittul. If you are travelling as a group there is a possibility of booking all four as a discounted block so please let us know if interested. We can arrange transfers, scooter hire or tuk tuks. Amila is a surf instructor and enjoys teaching our guests! Please note that these apartments are designed for 2 adults sharing rather than families. For that reason amongst others, we only consider taking children and infants in certain circumstances where we think it can work. Please consult with us before booking if you're travelling with a child, thank you.
    Hikkaduwa is famous for its surf, nature and watersports. You can swim with turtles, learn to surf, wakeboard on the nearby lagoon and see an abundance of wildlife only a short distance from our doorstep. Seafood (and food generally) is fantastic here-very fresh and we can show you the fish and fruit markets to help you with any supplies you need. If you are here to fully relax and unwind you can try some authentic Ayuevedic treatments including massage and cleanses nearby.
  • Amila and Hannah's place is lovely! It's a bit far from Hikkaduwa, but it's clean, cozy and comfortable. And there's a lot of birds and animals in jungle around apartment. Great place to stay for those who extremely tired of the city. Also Amila checked-in earlier because we arrived in early morning. Also he left some fruits for us. We are really appreciate that! Amila and Hannah are very hospitable hosts. We enjoyed every minute spent in this apartment!

    Anna2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • My husband & I had a great time at The Banana Leaf Apartments. Its a lovely place that's very comfortable & cozy. They also offer a well equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals. The hosts are super friendly and are always ready to help you out in anyway possible to make your stay more comfortable.

    Prajwala2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect

    Kristin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah and Amila are excellent hosts--so helpful and friendly - we even were invited to join a family party on our second night. Perfect hosts and the most beautiful and stylish apartments in a quiet part of Hikkaduwa surrounded by cinnamon fields and jungle. When we were leaving, Hannah reminded us to contact her for any advice we might need on our travels. Also, Amila's cooking is the best! Thoroughly recommend Banana Leaf.

    Anne2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • It's my best place around the world. The beach side is too much hotels ,so it's very touristic. But the place around the house is very quite and peaceful. And Amila and Hanna were so nice hosts. I got Amila's surfing lesson. It was so nice too. Highly recommend this house to all.

    Yasuo2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Phantastic apartment, tastefully decorated, lovely attention to detail! This is one of the best Airbnb’s you’ll find in the Southern Province. Hannah is an excellent host, the Guide Book is really useful. I got some fruits when I arrived and the filtered water to refill bottles was great too! The Bamboo room is the first apartment near the entrance, so everybody walks past it, but it’s not really a problem. A bit far from the main road and eateries, all other guests had scooters, I walked (20min) or ran (7min) the distance for exercise. WiFi issues, and powercuts just as in the rest of country. Overall great stay, I recommend it!

    Hikkaduwa, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

    Small bungalow in a serene location next to the Hikkaduwa lagoon. Property includes 1/2 acre of landscaped garden, 10m x 3m private swimming pool and jetty on the lagoon. Separate kitchen and caretaker's room. 5 min tuk tuk ride from Hikkaduwa town.
    Quiet and unspoiled natural location. The lagoon banks are lined with mangroves, and the jetty provides a great view of the water. We have many visiting birds including kingfishers, parakeets, orioles, woodpeckers and waders. Also a couple of water monitors. Canoe available for exploring the lagoon. Fishing rods and basic tackle box. Crate full of board games. Small bookshelf with selection of titles.
    We are situated at the edge of a quiet, friendly local community. There are several fishermen on the lagoon - if you like fresh fish, they will deliver straight to the jetty! Hikkaduwa town and the bustling beach strip are a short distance away.
  • Fantastic villa for a perfect vacation. Nihal the care taker took great care of us. Great cook of local cuisine and extremely good with local all attachments including taxi to airport etc

  • PJ's place was the highlight of our Sri Lanka trip. Relaxing in the covered living space while my children swam in the pool was perfect. I loved how the living space was nicely shaded by the roof, but had no walls. This was a unique experience for me (being Canadian all of our homes need walls to keep out the snow and the bugs!). We were able to listen to music, snacked whenever we wanted, and enjoyed the peace and privacy. Nihal, the caretaker, lives in a separate cottage on the property and he did a perfect job of being available and extremely helpful, while also giving us plenty of alone time and privacy. He responded to any of our texts within moments and was eager to help prepare any food we wanted and to clean up (it is worth noting that we brought our own food that we picked up in Hikkaduwa before arriving - we also went into Hikkaduwa each evening for dinner - Nihal called us a tuk tuk). The bedrooms were excellent with comfy beds and strong AC units that could be adjusted individually. The bathrooms were beautiful with outdoor showers. We also enjoyed paddling around the lagoon. We saw plenty of birds and a number of local fishermen out in their tiny boats. It really was a special experience and one that I was sad to leave.

    Trent2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Lovely view. Excellent pool. Great care taker. Host was easy to communicate with. Enjoyed my stay so much more than I expected

    Rasula2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • PJ's place is really lovely. Two rooms with really nice outdoor baths. The swimming pool is really lovely as well. There is a canoe which the caretaker will take you for a quick ride in the backwaters. Excellent hospitality with great breakfasts :) Reccomend without a doubt !

    Vivek2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to stay at!!Felt like I was at home:)

    Azeem2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was a nice little house with a spacious garden and a quiet environment. The Caretaker was very friendly even though the communication was sometimes a bit difficult. Nevertheless, he responded to each of our requests. In general, I can only recommend the house l.

    Jonas2019-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, very peaceful and the pool is lovely. The beds are comfortable. The house keeper Denish, is really nice and cooked us dinner. There is a lot of bugs in the common area.

    to feel space, tranquility and nature... Very Spacious suite with a private plunge pool and modern comforts where time stands still as you enjoy the space nature and tranquillity in this very old Dutch colonial villa.
    Nestled in the middle of a large lush garden with sprawling trees and picturesque scenery, our villa is only a 15 minutes drive from Galle Town, the most well-known coastal city in Southern Sri Lanka. Deliberately designed to provide ample space and relaxed privacy for its guests, it is a newly- restored 18th century two-storied building which offers two large suites, each with a private swimming pool and a jacuzzi/ bath tub.

This suite -- Sunrise Suite -- obviously facing east, on first floor, is surrounded by long wide balconies. It also has 6 large windows and 3 double doors giving a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, jungles and paddy fields. The two suites can be booked together or separately. Each suite is completely separated from the other to ensure privacy. Both suites have been sympathetically restored in keeping with the history of this very old building, but with a modern emphasis on comfort, space and connection to nature.

Wifi Meals can be ordered or a cook can be hired by prior arrangement. Breakfast included in the rates
    We are in a very quiet residential neighbourhood. As our home is at the end of a private street vehicular traffic is almost non existent.
  • If you’re looking for a beautiful open-air room, furnished with dark-wood antiques; a private plunge pool and a huge balcony overlooking large, shady jungle trees; then look no further than Dinesh & Sumudu’s SR spacious suite. If you dream of watching the sunrise from your luxuriously comfortable four-post bed; listening to the sounds of the monkeys swinging from the branches just outside your window; eating delicious, traditional Sri Lankan breakfasts and being hosted by an attentive, generous couple then all you have to do is book Dinesh & Sumudu’s SR spacious suite. If you want an unforgettably peaceful jungle-retreat, do yourself a favour and book this AirBnB. We did. It was the perfect honeymoon. Thank you Dinesh, Sumudu & Sunethra, we had a wonderful stay and didn’t want to leave!

    Jonny2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh and Sumudu’s place is stunning. It was such a beautiful oasis from the busy city of Galle surrounded by amazing lush scenery. The room was even bigger than we expected and having our own private plunge pool was an absolute treat! Dinesh and Sumudu were charming and helpful and I would be back again if I ever return to Galle. Thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay!

    Anna2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We only just left today after staying there for 3 nights and I must say, it was the definitely our favourite stay in our whole trip in Sri Lanka! The house itself has full of character. A very lovely colonial styled home surrounded by pure nature! The private plunge pool and the jacuzzi (although we didnt use it) were just perfect added bonus, it’s so easy to want to just stay in the whole day! Dinesh and Sumudu, the famiy and the staff are very attentive and hospitable! They were away on some part of our stay and they still arranged to get us take away dinner on a rainy night! Coudnt thank you enough! Daily Sri lankan breakfast was just lush, plus watching the monkeys and birds and occasional cat visitors, what more could you ask for?! We highly recommend this place, particularly if you want a nice peaceful stay away from the busy streets but close enough to Galle, Hikaduwa and Unawatuna beaches.

    Gretchelle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh is a wonderful host fully deserving his superhost status. The room we stayed in was spectacular and enormous, with a very comfortable bed, wonderful plunge pool, good hot water and a spectacular view into the jungle. It was great to watch the monkeys leaping from tree to tree. Dinesh has a close neighbour with a tuk tuk who is charming and can easily whisk you off into Galle Fort or beyond. We had a really lovely stay - thank you very much!

    James2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We can only join the many almost exuberant comments. Sumudu and Dinesh are great hosts! And once you have moved into your quarters on the first floor with the surrounding veranda and the small refreshment pool and watch the monkeys jumping and climbing halfway up the tree, you don't want to leave. Edda and Nicolas We only can confirm all the positive judgments we have read about Dinesh and Sumudu. They are great hosts !! And if you arrive at your new "home" on the first floor in the big apartment with the Veranda and the refreshing pool, watching the monkeys jumping from tree to tree, discovering beautiful white birds with long tailes, then you will never leave! We will come back. Edda and Nicolas

    Edda & Nicolas2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was a total oasis, complete with monkeys and fireflies! Dinesh and Sumudu were lovely - so helpful and definitely knew the best places to eat. Loved the plunge pool and the hoppers perhaps the best!

    Steve2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Get ready to reach paradise. The accommodation is a gem hidden in the most beautiful green jungle with the sounds a birds, monkeys and squirrels. And yet, only 10min drive by tuktuk or bus to Galle. The room is extremely well and beautifully decorated. The pictures on the accommodation are beautiful but the reality is much better. The bed is comfortable and lovely dressed with beautiful white linen. The bathroom well equipped, and the fresh plunge pool was calling for us after a long warm day. There is a little fridge with ice cold water, small candlelights to enjoy the evenings on the terrace. Local breakfast served on the terraces by smiley and friendly staff. Lovely and interesting discussion with Dinesh and Sumudu. Extremely nice and helpful hosts. They really went beyond a hosts normal and expected attributions with food, guidance and assistance in any way. Our stay here, was definitely the best in Sri Lanka as being so authentic and so charming.

    Lisbeth2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property with a big and stylish upstairs room with private plunge pool and huge private balcony overlooking the jungle! Dinesh & Sumudu are very kind and welcoming people and they were always available if we needed everything. Every morning there was a different kind of Sri Lankan breakfast ready for us, which was really good! It is about 10-15 minutes drive to the fort and the house is not so easy to find, but just ask Dinesh and he will arrange a tuk tuk and this worked flawlessly (drop off and pick up). All in all a really nice stay and would definitely recommend if you are looking for something more secluded and green but still nearby the fort.

    Our natural beach cabana with balcony, ocean views and en-suite bathroom is the perfect place for a relaxed beach holiday . The cabana has everything you need and is situated in a quiet area close to the tourist town Hikkaduwa. From here you can explore the area!
    We have a cozy, wooden beachfront Cabana available for rent. The cabana is made from wood. It has an attached, modern bathroom with walk through closet. It is featured with a fan, mosquito net, mirror, mini fridge and sitting area. The water tank is on the roof and the tank gets hot during the day from the sun so the water is always warm unless it's raining! The cabana is right at the beach in front of the ocean, overlooking Thambili Café. A peaceful and quiet place, perfect to relax to the sound of the Ocean. Galle Road is behind and you are only 3km away from the tourist town Hikkaduwa. Our accommodation is unique due to its natural style, atmosphere and privacy. You are surrounded by nature, the birds and the ocean. You will love it! During the season from November until April we run a small beach café Thambili Cafe which you can see from the balcony. You can order yummy dishes but are not disturbed by the Café activities. Even so the cafe is closed during the off season you can get breakfast here if you wish for a small extra cost. You can also use the pool and enjoy the tropical garden at our other guesthouse 150m walk from the beach cabana. Public and private transport is right outside the door on Galle Road. We also have our own air-conditioned Van and can arrange transfers, excursions and tours around the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka for you. You can rent bicycles or a scooter from us to explore the area. The jungle starts just behind the railway line 100m inland and you can see lots of wildlife there.
    Our cabana is situated in a quiet, safe neighbourhood with private houses and Boutique Hotels. In walking distance to the main tourist area with surf spots, bars, restaurants and shops.
  • The cabana is located above the very nice Thamibili Café on the beach. At night you hear nothing but the sound of the sea. The accommodation is nicely decorated and clean and offers a little peace. After Hikkaduwa you can relax on the beach. The café offers delicious food and drink. We felt comfortable all around

    Alexander2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ruwan & Linda’s cabana. The hosts as well as the cafe employees were very helpful and accommodating. The location was also perfect for our needs. Would 100% recommend.

    Reetta2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ruwan & Lindas place was just perfect for a relaxed stay. It is directly at the beach so I could see and hear the waves from my room what really calmed down. The team around the cabana is doing an amazing job and you just feel comfortable. The decorated details in the cabana and room are enchanting. The food is great quality and just yammy. Thank you!

    Antonina2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice and cozy room right by the beach of Hikkaduwa. The people working there are very nice and friendly. The hospitality, location and food exceeded our expectations. It is located a couple of minutes from the busy parts of Hikkaduwa which suited us very well. Only downside was the lack of AC which the compensated with their hospitality.

    Martin2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! It was authentic and unique, best part of our trip so far! Staff are so kind and offer advice and help with anything! Beautiful views and relaxing atmosphere

    Gemma2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • The time in the cozy cabana unfortunately passed far too quickly! It was insane and we would go back anytime. :) a highlight of our trip! The sea view was amazing and the people were so incredibly nice - the breakfast, snacks and dinner were also more than delicious! We had the best time - the great ocean view, best people and tasty food! Want to come again

    Katrin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed two nights mid December I enjoyed the place so much I added an additional night onto my stay. The location is perfect stright out onto the beach nicely out of the main town but easy to get to by tut tut if you want a bit of commercialism. The room is spacious has fan,fridge and Mossy net over the bed nice small veranda to sit out on after sunbathing etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful food was amazing didn’t bother going into hikkawuwdu had everything here.Ranga sorted tut tut out for my day exploring Galle fort area. Must not forget to mention that a pool and jacuzzi are available to use over the road at the family hotel.

    Ian2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ruwan and Linda’s place is a really nice cabana above the cafe with views of the ocean. It is on the quieter part of the beach so made for a peaceful start to our trip. Ruwan and the team were really welcoming and helpful and I would recommend to everyone!

  • Villa Saphire is so far the best AirBnB finding for us. Loved every minute of stay. Villa feels like home - although we stayed just 2 weeks. Villa and garden is amazing, so green, clean, quiet. Definitely returning as soon as possible. Gizelle is more than host, serving guests like best friends and helpful in anything and far beyond that is related to villa. Very good suggestions and what to do and what not to do in Srilanka and Hikkaduwa. The local team around Gizelle is very well trained and motivated to make the stay in Srilanka incredible.

  • Where to begin?! Wow. We had the most incredible stay at Villa Sapphire and are so sad to leave. The house is filled with every amenity and touch you could hope for so that it truly feels like home. Chaminda is an excellent chef and the highlight of our stay. He cooked us every meal for an incredibly fair rate. Gizelle is warm, welcoming and so easy to deal with. We will be back!

    Sarah2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful trip and very organised from the beginning. Gizelle is a very good host with attention to detail and gave us as much information as possible. The check in was very smooth and we where greeted by the staff who took care of us during our stay. The chef is brilliant and cooks what ever you desire, we had breakfast and dinner and could not fault anything. We would recommend the Villa as it is a tranquil and relaxing place to switch of and just be yourself. Thank you

    Anne2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Sapphire is a dream. It was terrific right from the beginning, starting with Gizelle's advance information, which was very helpful (visa, etc.) There are three real treasures in the mansion. Chaminda, Kosala and Ramani ... All their kind, the friendliness and helpfulness and work bring the whole a family atmosphere, that you can only feel good. We had a terrific great holiday and would always come back to this little oasis of well-being.

    Patrick2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Sapphire was an amazing place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of booking. The rooms with en-suite bathrooms are all spacious and the set up was perfect for our family. The place is lovely and clean, with outside seating area for meals, large kitchen, lounge and pool. Gizelle was also very good at keeping in contact, providing many recommendations and booking some of our day trips for us; this is above and beyond what an Airbnb host is required to do and I thank her for all the hard work she provided in making sure our trip was a success. Our favourite part of our holiday was definitely Chaminda (the private Chef); his food was absolutely fantastic and we ate in at the Villa much more then we expected, the Villa guide did say it was the best food in Hikkaduwa and we definitely agree, this also made our trip overall very cost effective. We were provided a couple of phones to use while we were there, this was a very nice touch and allowed us to contact the tuk tuk driver Kosala and the transfer company when needed. Overall Villa Sapphire has been my favourite Airbnb stay to date and would recommend anyone to book. Thank you Villa Sapphire :)

    Mathew2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place, clean quite and with an amazing chef who cooks FANTASTIC SRI LANKAN cuisine. The host is available 24/7, the staff is amazingly warm and welcoming. I cannot stop raving about the hospitality and the place. I had an amazing two days with my family.

    Dumith2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a perfect time at Villa Sapphire. Gizelle gave us a lot of helpful information and made a lot arrangements for us so we could just enjoy the time. Chaminda (Chef/Villa manager) was great and his food was delicious. Everything is arranged to your wishes. You just have to tell them. We enjoyed our time very much and hope to come back one day.

    Markus2019-10-21T00:00:00Z

  • This is a fantastic property situated right on the beach. The accommodation is excellent with nice touches all around the house. Quality is everywhere and Indie was the most luxurious of all the places we stayed in our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. You don't need to leave the property, everything is there for you - pool, beach and a restaurant next door that serves excellent food (with a 10% discount for Indie guests). This is where we need to mention Niman (manager) and Anoja (cook) who could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Breakfast is served in the garden overlooking the sea. A snack menu is available and the are around 5 dinner menu options. Anoja is very flexible and would source other foods of your choice. There is nothing to fault at Indie but you need to be aware that the sea can be a bit boisterous and on 2 of our 4 days we were advised not to swim. You can still paddle and have a walk along the beach to 3 or 4 beach bar/restaurants. The property is on the main coast road so there is a little road noise (mainly the crazy bus drivers hooting as they overtake everything in sight!). Niman and Anoja arranged transport for us to various places including Galle Fort, a small local turtle hatchery and and a boat safari on a lake.... There is a book in the house detailing local attractions. Highly recommended. Not cheap but still very good value at the price. 10/10 .

    Ray2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What an absolute amazing experience Indies beach house was. Indie and her staff were extremely helpful and attentive to us and our needs. Truely exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much. Will definitely come back.

    Harry2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the stay as a family. The apartment is right by the beach and there is a boutique hotel next to it with a bar and restaurant. Good vibe, nice breakfast, convenient location. It was out of electricity at 4am on the first night of our stay. Couldn’t reach the house keeper by that time but it was fixed in an hour so didn’t bother me too much. Overall very nice experience.

    Joey2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful seaside villa, very design and well maintained. Good location, about 3 kilometers away from the Galle Fortress, it is still very convenient to communicate, the overall living experience will definitely be better than living in the Fortress. Breakfast was included during the stay. The breakfast was great, not only hearty, but also arranged on a large table facing the sea, which was very ritual. The overall furnishings of the villa are great, except for the slightly smaller living room on the first floor. The villa has three housekeepers under maintenance. The swimming pool is cleaned every day and it feels very clean. Playing with children in the pool, or lying on a lounger in the yard, blowing the sea breeze and basking in the sun is one of the most beautiful pictures of our trip. There are two shortcomings. One is that it is not convenient to eat. The villa itself can provide cooking services, but I do n’t know why. Two times asked if we could make dinner for us. Both rejected us for different reasons. There are several around the villa. Restaurant, but most of the meal choices provided are relatively simple. We spent the Chinese New Year here, and the New Year's Eve dinner was quite simple. Another point is that the master bedroom on the second floor is facing the street. At night, there will be some noise. On the roof of the master bedroom, there is a large water tank, which should be used for domestic water. Every time someone uses water, the water tank will buzz. It also affects sleep.

    Suo2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at Indie Beachouse. It was immaculate, beautifully presented and well cared for by Nirman and Anoja. The amenities were excellent, we’ll never forget our breakfasts by the beach. Thanks for a wonderful break.

    Robert2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Whilst the pictures look amazing, and the reviews were are all so positive, this still managed to exceed our expectations. We were a group of 6, and Indies villa had more then enough space. The rooms and bathrooms are all large and clean, the pool a perfect temperature to cool off in, and the beach is literally an extension of your back yard. Whilst the villa is a tuk tuk ride from the hustle and bustle of Galle, you’ll appreciate the quiet of your private beach. Finally, and most importantly, Nirman and Anooja are the finishing touches on your amazing stay at Indies. Not only are they so lovely and willing to go the extra mile for everything and anything you ask, but Anooja’s cooking is out of this world. Do yourself a favour and make sure you eat in as much as you can and be sure to ask for her green bean curry! Would 100% stay here next time we were here. Thanks again Indie, Nirman and Anooja!!!

    Ricky2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Indie is a wonderful host. Beautiful house with a great view. It has a direct access to the beach. Location is close to galle fort and other view points. Highly recommend this place for everyone who is planning to stay in galle. Keep being a great host which you already are 👍😊

    Shashi2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely fabulous time at Villa Indie and I highly recommend booking your Sri Lankan beach break here! It is located just a short ride away from Galle Fort and provides a wonderful experience away from crowds of tourists. The home was beautiful and right on the beach, perfect for pre breakfast walks! The villa staff were warm and hospitable and the food was delicious and plentiful! If you are looking for a stylish home with a great pool, amazing food and beach access, this is your place!

    LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF SRI LANKA? Head down to The Scallops. We have good food, chilled out vibes, rooms and tents for rent as well. We are also pet friendly in case you are worried about leaving your furry friends at home. Things to do in the area: 1. Snorkeling (the reef is awesome these days!!!) 2. Fishing 3.

  • Anton was the best host you can imagine. He knows whats up in Hikkaduwa and the surroundings (snorkling in the reef, turtles and where to find them, where to swim and where to get the best short eats). The room is right by the ocean and you can hear the waves rolling in at night.

  • The perfect beachfront accommodation! My husband and I stayed 5 nights and it felt too short! Everyone helping to run the accommodation was extremely kind and helpful. The location is perfect- away from touristy Hikkaduwa but still close to all of attractions in the area. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance of the accommodation which offer the most delicious seafood and local cuisine. The breakfast they offer at the accommodation is delicious and fairly priced. The brothers helped us to rent a scooter for exploring the surroundings and offered excellent tips on where to go. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with a nice outdoor area to relax. Everything was perfect and highly recommendable!

    Jessica2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Well I’d like to be original and say something different than the other comments but... I have to agree with everything that was said about this place! Amazing hosts, room is incredibly clean, location is perfect, right on the beach, far away from the crowds but you still find everything you need nearby. Breakfast is cheap and delicious. If you choose the Sri Lankan option, which I think you should, it is homemade by Dilan and Sanoj’s mother. Don’t hesitate and book this place!

    Éloïse2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 10 days at Sailor’s Bay, and by the end of our stay, the place felt like home. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast is available at the property, and if you wish, the hosts can arrange a fish BBQ or cook some delicious local food for dinner – we had some rice and curry with fish, which was amazing. The beach at the property is just perfect – very clean with only a few people around. There is plenty of good restaurants near the property worth visiting: great kottu in the local place just across the road, fresh fish and seafood at Sunrise and A2 within walking distance, and a lovely ambiance and home-made pasta at Mangrovia on the lagoon just a 5-minute ride away on a tuk-tuk. The hosts are great – very kind and helpful people, fluent in English and always available. They helped us arrange great surf-lessons, a trip to the jungle (Kanneliya) and a lagoon safari at Maduganga lake, which were all worthy and unforgettable experiences for a really friendly price. We’d be happy to come to this place again.

    Maria2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

    Charlie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay, we are happy that we chose Sailor's Bay slightly outside of the hectic Hikkaduwa. Perfect place to relax, the beach is right in front and almost desert. Sanoj and his brother showed outstanding hospitality and we will gladly come back!

    Antoine2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sailors bay is really well run by the family and they take excellent care of you and your needs. Not overbearing at all and able to answer any questions (fluent in English) you have or assist you in any mode of transporting around the area as well as negotiating very reasonable rates so you don’t have any hassles at all with the tuk tuks. Would love to spend a lot longer here as it is a lovely place to unwind and relax without any of the annoyances tourists tend to encounter. Thank you!

  • 100% excellent Sanjeewa's place is quiet, CLEAN, and had everything I needed. It's located a pleasant few minutes walk off the main street. The rooms are large, clean, and well-maintained. If you are into health you will like it, as you can really relax there. If you want somewhere to read and work, it's ideal. There is a great gym 2-3 kilometers away (go to main road, turn left, and walk a couple of km). Cheap: 5,000 SL rupees for 1 month. Lots of restaurants and cafes on the main road in the other direction (not far from there). The kitchen area in the accommodation is extensive. I slept well there.

    Adrian2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • My stay in Dodanduwa was absolutley amazing. Sanjeewas place is in the calm village close to the Hikkaduwa centre, sorounded by nature. I decided to stay one month - room is clean with aircondition and huge comfotable bed, kitchen is fully equiped and bathroom has a hot water. I felt very welcome and home. Thank you for having me.

    Zuzana2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay at Sanjeewa’s guesthouse. Instant communication and organisation of a tuk tuk to pick me up at the train station. The room and kitchen was very clean and a washing machine is available for use should you need. The room itself is reflected well in the photos. Overall a great stay with very friendly and helpful hosts. Would highly recommend.

    Christine2019-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately, we were only two days in the beautiful apartment, but enjoyed the time very much. The rooms are exactly as the pictures promise, clean, well maintained and stylishly furnished. Particularly noteworthy are especially the large kitchen, which connects directly to the apartment and can be shared. A fridge and kettle are also available in the apartment itself. A washing machine is also available for free. Right in town there is everything you need: markets, a supermarket, direct access to the beach where you can see a beautiful sunset. Sanjeewa and his wife are very warm and helpful hosts that make you feel right at home. For us it was one of the nicest accommodations during our almost one month Sri Lanka vacation.

    Sarah2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • I liked the accommodation very much, we lived with friends, rented the entire top of the villa. Conveniently, it seems that we were together, but at the same time separately. each has its own separate fully equipped room, with a separate toilet and shower. Shared were kitchen and balcony. The rooms are spacious, high ceilings, everything is clean, neat, there is bedding, towels, soap, toilet paper. We lived 3 weeks. once a week, cleaned, changed bed linen and towels. The kitchen is perfectly equipped, there is everything: a kettle, two types of a toaster, a vertical blender, a slow cooker, a lot of different dishes, everything you need for cooking, breakfasts and dinners were prepared at home and there was no feeling that something was missing . Everything is at home) There is a washing machine. In general, everything you need for convenience is present in full size. Sanjeeva helped in everything he could) With scooters, they took off cheaper than they rent everywhere. With transfer back and forth, under our requests for size. Advice) Very responsive! I responded to any request. If we are going to come again, then only here, we really liked the accommodation. Stylish interior, large spacious rooms, air conditioning, fan, always warm water. So cool, I advise everyone! And the price is great for such a place. We drove to Hikkaduwa on scooters in 5-7 minutes. Nearby there is a large chain store, a little further a pharmacy and a mini market, where we bought fruits and vegetables, there are many small shops, in the other direction there is a fish market, and 5-7 minutes walk from the villa. We are pleased with the rest!

    Мария2019-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sanjeewa's place is absolutely spotless, a huge very stylish room with enormous very comfortable bed and attached spotless luxury bathroom. Use of the attached spotless kitchen with all the modern amène ties, oven, gas cooker, blender for making smoothies, rice cooker pots and pans plates, cutlery, everything you need and a huge fridge are all at your disposal. This is the nicest room we stayed in in the whole of Sri Lanka. And did I mention it comes with air conditioning! You won't find better quality room at this unbeatable price. The village next door on the way to Hikkaduwa beach is the real deal, real sri Lankan rice and curry and fresh fruits and coconuts at sri Lankan prices. Sanjeewa was lovely and couldn't be more helpful, communication was excellent and he really made us feel like we could count on him for anything.

    Emma2019-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • I lived in this house for 13 days in December 18. The house is rented quite recently, so the cleanliness and freshness are indescribable. Not far from house is a great wide, almost deserted beach with several cafes. If you want a civilization, you can drive to Hikkaduwa in 5 minutes. Or walk to it 3-4 km along the beach. Excellent catches the mobile Internet Dialog, the speed allowed to watch movies online. The owners are wonderful people, all issues were resolved very quickly and with a smile. Next time I will go only to this house, and I will definitely advise it to my friends.

  • Great place for a relaxing and wonderful vacation. Very nice guys, great breakfasts with great views, all the beauty is within walking distance. We were on other beaches, but the beach in front of the hotel was the best, we are very glad that we chose this place.

    Анастасия2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • If you are looking for a paradise beach, with a sunset to die for, look no further than Sailors Bay, at Dodanduwa, just two hours drive south from Colombo. It is a family run business, with six, spacious, self contained rooms with good WiFi, good electrics and great shower facilities. The breakfast is served outside under a thatched canopy, as you listen to the waves tumble on to the beach. Real coffee, four fruits, spicy omelette, toast and the most delicious coconut honey pancakes. Dilan and his brother were attentive and cared for my every need. It’s the little things that made it so good, a self catering kitchen, with fridge space, or their wealth of knowledge about transport and places of interest. They have thought of everything. I travelled alone and at 71, felt welcome and safe.

    Tina2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful stay. The airbnb is still very new, great air conditioning and a small but nice bathroom. The stretch of beach in front is almost private. The view at your breakfast is fantastic. And then the family, what wonderful people. Very respectful to the guests and ensure that your stay runs smoothly. We wish them all the best with this family business!

  • If you want to relax in the middle of the jungle and spend some time with Sri Lankan people and eat very good local food - you have to come here! It's a magical place, especially in the morning, when the nature awakes. you could imagine a dinosaur passing by :) we loved to be hosted by a very nice and friendly man who was always avaible and open for any questions we had, for example the possibility to rent a kajak and do a tour at the mangrovian lagoon. It was perfect. we would come back!

  • If you are tired of the bustle of the city, and it is not difficult for you to drive one and a half km to the sea, then you are determined to this place. But you have to consider that you can only get there by bike. Pleasant helpful host. We needed salt as we cooked in the kitchen ourselves, wrote, brought it in 2 minutes !! The villa itself has everything you need. We will be happy to come back again !!!

  • Unforgettable place! Very cool location. Firstly, I want to thank the owner! He is ready to help at any time, always in touch, very helpful and helpful) We arrived at the villa much earlier, at 6 in the morning, and he answered and let us in very early. Helped us with all questions) Pictures on the site correspond to reality. Modern villa, clean, bright, comfortable! (Cleaning every 3 days). The villa is in the jungle, there are no neighbors, quietly and calmly) The only guests are monkeys, chipmunks and different animals, but in Sri Lanka it’s everywhere! The view from the terrace is very beautiful !!!! Walking to the beach leisurely 25-30 minutes. Or tuk tuk 200 rupees - = $ 1 (It's nice to walk, very friendly people meet along the road, and we fed a little puppy in the White Temple along the road. Who will walk there, treat the little dogs with a delicious treat?) For two, an ideal place to relax! Thanks to the owner for creating such a paradise!

  • Cozy, modern villa is equipped with all necessary furniture and appliances, but there is no air conditioning, only a fan. Located on the shores of a beautiful lake, with stunning views, away from noisy streets and roads, in the middle of the jungle :) The only thing that woke up at night from the sounds of wildlife: chipmunks and birds, at the beginning it was funny, but at the end of the vacation they began to get tired of it. Perfect cleanliness, cleaning every three days. Very welcoming and friendly host, lives nearby, always in touch. 3 km to the beach, and 5 km to the center.

    Karina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great welcoming host! Beautiful nature around! The view of the lake is the best! Lost the key to the pitchfork Nilendro gave me the room for free. Good neighbors around! The furniture is in good condition, there is a safe! thanks

    Liliya2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

  • We had a Honey moon and New Year in Akain villa. The villa is situated very close to the ocean. We prefer to see sunsets at the beach. The owners are very kind and friendly people. They help us, brought everything what we need. In the eve of New Year Candy and Lakmina organized unforgettable beach party with national food and fireworks for their guests! There is 20 minutes to the fish market by foot. Every Saturday there is the market not far from the villa. We have wonderful time in this house.

  • a place in total calm despite the constant roar of the Indian Ocean, 20 meters from the beach and the sea, exceptional guests, restaurant, market and small shop nearby, the rest within reach of touk touk, the sun, the smile locals, availability of our host, what else to say ........

    Stephane2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Place is great. Just as it is in the pictures. Very spacious and clean. Close to the beach. Lakmini was helpful. There are few shops close by so you can buy the amenities you want. But note the beach is too dangerous to swim. You can walk up and down but that's it. It has two nice large beds with a nice bathroom and a very spacious living room. Very close to the beach.

    Amila2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Lakmini was wonderful! The villa is spacious and very clean, also the security system installed outside made us feel very safe. The beach out front is beautiful and besides a few friendly locals empty and perfect for morning and evening strolls- even in off season! Lakmini and his family took such great care of us and even went out of their way to help us find a good doctor when our baby got sick. Thank you for a great time!

  • We had a wonderful New Year holidays. It seemed that we were with relatives, because on ALL questions there were instant answers and a huge desire to help was evident. We travel a lot, but faced with such care for the first time. Each step was asked whether we were satisfied or not and whether help was needed. We give great greetings to the owners of the house and their sons, who did everything so that our vacation was truly paradise. Great cleanliness of the rooms and walking distance to the ocean. We will definitely visit this family again.

    Даниэль2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • I just have one word for Ashen’s beach house — woooow ! It is situated at a great location right on the beach so you can access it 24*7 just by going out their back yard. The place is sparkling clean with all the necessary amenities. They also rented us a bike and arranged a Tuk tuk when needed. Ashen and his mother were very easy to talk and were quite accommodating. The made sure that we were at ease and catered to all our needs. Their authentic srilankan food we had was the best in our whole trip. Especially the rice and curry and the coconut chutney with string hoppers. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxed holiday

    Bhimanadhuni2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Ashen's is a beautiful home stay hosted by Mr. Sanath and family. Mr. Sanath is approachable and very helpful with all queries and Mrs. Sujani and their son are great hosts at the Villa. The villa is beautiful and is located bang at the beach.. Yes u read it correctly - at the beach!.The pictures definitely dont do justice to how beautiful this place is. The house is very nicely maintained and you would feel like its your own home in a new country. Mrs. Sujani made sure my stay here was extremely comfortable and homely. Their breakfast is healthy and sumptuous and the hosts never said No for anything... they always had a warm smile and kept checking if i needed anything. They offer 2 wheelers and airport transfers at a very nominal cost. I lost my earring there and they are making all efforts to ensure it is sent back to me. I cant wait to get back again to this Beautiful Country with an amazing culture and extremely warm people and my stay is definitely going to be at Ashen's. Thank You Mr. and Mrs. Sanath for the amazing hospitality and the feeling of home away from home.. i totally miss Ashen's and cant wait to visit again! :)

The nearest cities are Galle and Hikkaduwa by bus 10 minutes. We really enjoyed it. Thank you very much for your family for hospitality, kindness and delicious food! :)

  • Best place on earth!!! Words can’t describe how beautiful this location is! Thank you so much Shehan + family :)

    Anna2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Shehan for a welcomed stay! What a stunning place you have. Always greeted with a Smile :)

    Alex2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Shehan's might be the best two nights we have ever had anywhere. It was a truly magical experience. The huts are amazing. Falling asleep with the real life soundtrack of the ocean will stick with me forever. Waking up and strolling ten feet to the beach, which was close to empty was simply the best. But what makes this place truly special is Shehan. He might be one of the most kind-hearted and gentle souls, we have ever met. His smile never left his face and he and his family made us feel so welcome. We had a cooking class with Shehan and his family, which was just ace. We made four delicious curries and we will forever try to replicate the taste back home but we will never replicate the experience of cooking with such kind people in the most beautiful setting ever at sunset. We honestly didn't want to leave. I don't think I will ever forget Shehan and Sri Lanka, it has exceeded all our expectations. This is the best money I have ever spent on accommodation. I hope that one day we will return.

    Ryan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We started our honeymoon with Shehan and his family and it was wonderful. Fantastic location, great food and great hospitality! The sea is very loud at night. One disturbs the other not;) Highly recommended!

    Laura2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was amazing, Aramanthe Beach Cabanas exceeded our expectations, we even extended our stay which was easy to do as Shehan was very accommodating. There is lots to do on the beach, many restaurants and bars which host live music nights. We even got to take part in a beach clean up (beach was lovely), the clean up was to raise awareness of plastic damage to local beaches and was a great way to mingle with the local community which was finished with a free cocktail and a bbq. Highly recommend Aramanthe Beach Cabanas.

    Aimee2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • An unusual stay in a little corner of paradise! For those who dream of sleeping on the beach this is the ideal place. Shehan welcomes you with great care, in an idyllic setting. The meals are delicious, do not hesitate to dine on site.

    Marie2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Shehan and his family are very, very good people. Our staying was one of the best in Sri Lanka. All the cabins are near the ocean, so first you see when you wake up in the morning is the ocean ❤️. It’s very quiet and comfortable place. We had river safari, cooking class, very good food and fresh juices. All of this was done with love. Thank you Shehan and your family, we will be back!

    Юлия2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nothing describes how WONDERFUL the place actually is, the hospitality of Shehan and his family who opened this Airbnb just a few months ago is just outstanding and the accommodation itself is just magical - You wake up and walk down the little stairs of your cabana and have your toes in the sand. The breakfast varies every day and is just nothing but delicious. Fresh seasonal juices or coconuts are always available aswell! The beach is nothing like many places and you see hardly any other tourists, even turtle come still to lay their eggs on this little piece of paradise. There are many little restaurants close by and places to have a sundowner. Shehan can organize a tuktuk or Vespa for you, surfboard or Kajak ...and ask to do the cooking class with his mum - her food is divine and prepared the traditional way! Galle is a Short tuktuk ride away and you can explore the fort with its many store and shops. It’s a luxury money can’t buy and we were blessed to be able to find this gem. We sure will be back even in this holiday! 🌸🦋🌿

  • Wardhana villa was a perfect haven in the middle of our travels. Having been away for a long time travelling between hostels and guestrooms, Chandirani made us so welcome in this beautiful place. We barely left the villa in our three night stay as it really is the perfect place to kick back and chill by the pool. Hopefully we can come back soon!

She even picked some fresh aloe Vera for my sunburnt boyfriend. The location is fantastic very short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants. Really can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Chandrani was especially amazing. She was a very considerate and made us feel very welcome to the house. I enjoyed sitting and talking with her during our stay. We would definitely come back to share time and meals with this family and this atmosphere.

    My place is perfect for couple who love to enjoy in a quite place without disturbs
  • Peaceful and private, lovely little spot with beautiful views of the rice land and jungle. An abundance of birds and wildlife and very gracious hosts. All amenities work well and Galle and Hikkaduwa are accessible by scooter. We enjoyed our stay so much we extended...twice!

    Sarah2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 2 weeks at Pradeep's place and everything was just great. Clean, quite, close to the road, hosts are very friendly and helpful.

    Yulia2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Pradeep’s place was amazing and looked exactly like in the pictures. Situated about 20 minutes away from Galle Fort, the village was a peaceful respite to come home to after a busy day. He rented his scooter to us so we never felt the distance was too far, and enjoyed the independence it gave us. During the 6 nights we stayed, we thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in the large and comfortable bed with the AC on, cooking breakfast in the fully-stocked kitchen, and relaxing on the couch in the evenings to watch some TV. From the beginning Pradeep was very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend the Freedom Apartment.

    Lisa2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Freedom Apartment was awesome. Pradeep and his family showed the most extreme degree of hospitality! They always helped in resolving issues and they made our stay in Galle really enjoyable. On one of the wonderful days, the Pradeep family cooked us a delicious Lankan dinner. It was wonderful! The road from the apartments to the city center takes some time (15 minutes on a moped), but this is a huge advantage because it made our evenings quiet and peaceful. The balcony offers a beautiful view of the tropical garden, all amenities are in excellent condition, the king-size bed is really comfortable. Highly recommend!

    Kseniya2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Pradeep, a great host and a great guy! He met us in person. He answered any questions and helped us. The apartments are in excellent condition and fully correspond to the photos. There are all-AC, fans, washing machine, toaster, stove, kettle, microwave, oven. The bathroom had hot water and it's great! Perfect cleanliness throughout the apartment and pleasant smell. The view from the balcony to the green meadow where cows graze is very beautiful. We needed a scooter and he provided us with his own at a super price. When we needed a transfer to the train station of Halle, early in the morning, his father took us in a tuk tuk. It was excellent. We will miss our stay at Pradeep.

    Владимир2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed in apartments for 10 days. I would like to thank Pradeep for his efforts and desire to help the guests. A room on the second floor of the house, on the first floor - a small shop. The owners live in the house next door and always come to the rescue promptly if you need something. The house is located far from the beach, but Pradeep rented us his scooter for a good price, so we moved easily. Around the house is silence and nature, chipmunks run, monitor lizards, birds sing. Very beautiful view from the balcony on the palm trees and the meadow, where several cows graze. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, including a microwave and grill. There is hot water, which is not often found in Sri Lanka, and a washing machine. Air conditioning is working properly. In general, we are very pleased with our stay here. I just want to wish Pradeep to pay more attention to cleaning and changing towels.

    Quiet, peaceful neighborhood away from the sea-side, with a view of the ocean and paddy fields - an experience of untouched nature.
  • I definitely recommend this place! It’s worth its money, very convenient location, walking to Narigama beach for min 5, to Hikkaduwa min 15, on a bike many times faster. There are many shops and cafes around, it is very important that it is far from the carriageway and railway road, on a hill, in the very jungle, where there are a lot of animals, very beautiful birds, silence and amazing beauty! Wai Fai is very good, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything necessary for cooking (incl. Salt, pepper and oil) Everything is very clean and well maintained, both in housing and on site. The owners took a bike of 1000 rupees (for a long time). The washing machine is paid from the owners of 1000 rupees for washing. No collateral, dipozits, surcharges were taken from us for nothing. The hosts are very responsive and help than they can! I advise everyone, we are very satisfied! Thank you for your hospitality!)))

We also have a restaurant which offers traditional Srilankan rice and curry and seafood...
    Less crowd and quite place with a great private white sand beach with turquoise sea. Tide is very calm and safe to swim and do other water activities. This is a perfect place to relax and have a sunbath also you can enjoy the perfect view of a sunset in the evening.

  • Our stay at Sailor's Bay was fantastic. Great room, great view, great hosts and great service. Everything was spot on. Would definitely recommend this to other people. Cheers!

    Amrita2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing double room, with verandah looking out over the sea. We loved our stay at Sailors Bay - room was great, good breakfasts, and brilliant location - close enough to Turtle Bay without being too in the crowds of busy Hikkaduwa. Sanoj is a wonderful host, who really went beyond. Strongly recommended!!

    Sam2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place. Spotlessly clean with mosquito nets and plug in deterrent. Beautiful en-suite with a great shower. Sanoj and his brother we’re friendly and helpful. Chandra, their father, was an unexpected delight. Such an interesting and knowledgeable man. Meeting him and getting to know him was a highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. His wife cooked us the most delicious meal on our final evening which was a real treat!! The beach outside was glorious, quiet and swimming easy to the left of the property nearer the sheltered end of the long beach which stretches right into Hikkaduwa. The beach shelves steeply and even when calm the waves can be very large so care needed. Tuktuk into town can usually be negotiated to SR 300. Small shops nearby are much cheaper and friendlier than those in Hikkaduwa. So good to be able to use the kitchen for preparing meals if you want, fresh fish, prawns etc can be bought directly from the fishermen just along at the harbour each morning, straight from the boats that have been out that night. Recommended by Sanoj, A2 Restaurant, is within walking distance and the food is very good. I have no hesitation in recommending Sailors’ Bay!! Great place with really lovely hosts.

    Julia2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • we spent great time here and we would go there again. we appreciate that the beach was calm and host were very helpful and willing. btw, delicious breakfast with oceanview were superb!

    Petra2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • If it's available then book it! The sunsets are to die for, the sea is amazing and the thoughtfulness of the whole family is a credit to them. Breakfasts are extensive and please ask for the Sri Lankan specials, they are awesome. Locally recommended restaurants were excellent and I would go back in an instant. On the routine side - airconditioning was super efficient, modern and worked well. Bed was very comfortable and the size of the rooms was well above average for Sri Lanka, as was the cleanliness and water pressure. Sailor's Bay comes top of the seven different locations we stayed in over the course of a month on the island.

    Karyn2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Sanoj for the great welcome! It answers quickly and the application to all questions, this is an important point, because on maps in the search for a guest house by name indicate a different location. The room is very clean, good furniture, a comfortable bathroom, but, most importantly - a beautiful view of the ocean directly from the room! Clean beach, comfortable sunbeds under the awnings. On the territory there is a place for eating under a canopy. The hosts kindly prepared a barbecue of fish, which we bought on the market 200-300 m from the guest house. A large store is 3 km away, and you can walk along the beach. I would like to thank the owners of the house for their hospitality, responsiveness and excellent attitude. All neighbors are also accepted comrades) Great desire to return here again!)

    Kirill2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spend one week here and enjoyed it a lot! Sanoj, Dilan and their family are brilliant hosts. Always been very helpful, also with cute uncommon requests. One time, I needed laptop to do some business back in Russia. He provided me it and never ask any extra charge. It’s just one example, but he help us lots of time: planing excursions, looking for best restaurants and so on. Also, I need to admit, Sailors bay has really full and tasty breakfast. I was really happy with it, especially with pineapple jam) So, if you a looking place in Hikkaduwa, with all responsibility, we can recommend Sailors bay. Cozy, calm, beautiful peace of paradise) P.S We spend 4 days in gorgeous room with a see view. Ocean is in 10 mts. It’s really worth experiencing and relaxing place.

    Das kleine Zimmer mit Doppelbett und angeschlossenem eigenen Bad befindet sich in einer privaten Wohnanlage mit 3 Einheiten. Ausserdem haben wir noch ein Grundstück am Strand wo Sie ganz privat im Schatten liegen dürfen.
    Neben dem Appartement befindet sich das Haus mit 3 Zimmern, Küche und Bad, welches ebenfalls zu mieten ist. Die großzügige Terasse wird dann gemeinsam genutzt. Der Vermieter mit seiner bezaubernden Familie wohnt oben. Wann immer Sie Hilfe brauchen wenden Sie sich an Saman. Seine Frau kocht sehr gerne und es ist immer ein Erlebniss ein echt singalesisches Essen von ihr zubereitet zu bekommen.
    Das Haus liegt in einem ruhigen ehemaligen Fischerdorf, dort hat man ein wenig Ruhe vor den Massen. Trotzdem ist der "hotspot" Hikkaduwa mit all seinen Bars und Restaurants noch gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, oder man fährt TucTuc.
  • Very welcoming family, good location)

    Мария2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Simon2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Saman and his family are great hosts. They always helped us to find good places. Saman derived us to visit the temples with all the explanations. He is a really nice person and I recommend him without any hesitation. The room is clean and near the beach.

    Celine2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was a great decision. Can’t beat the price anywhere and the breakfast was delicious. I highly suggest this place for one or a couple.

    Eitan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Samans place was amazing. Saman was our best host and best tour guide. We just told him what we’d like to see and he organized everything. Starting with our itinerary to fresh food and fresh fruits every day. We saw everything that we wished to see and more. He is so passionate about his country and very proud to show us around and give details and explain everything. Kameni, his wife, is such a sweet heart! She’s the best cook ever! We had specially cooked dinner every night and she was just delighted to see us eat. We tried most Sri Lankan foods and loved it! She also does laundry and braids hair( she did mine and it was lovely). The private beach side was really great. You get your own umbrella and sunbed. The beach is really nice and clean. The whole family is a delight! They are really helpful and kind. We totally recommend this place! The best place in Hikkaduwa. Thank you Saman to you and your family for making our first stay in Sri Lanka unforgettable. Best wishes , take care all of you and see you next time! Hugs from Blanka& Lorand

    Lorand2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time in Hikkaduwa with Saman and his family. The room is cosy and clean. Saman is an amazing host who is extremely friendly and helpful. His wife is an amazing cook, every meal I had was fabulous and way better than you will find in any restaurant. I would gladly recommend this stay to anyone who wants to enjoy Sri Lanka's beaches and comes to Hikkaduwa. Will surely visit again!

    Christian2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Thenu villa for a month, and very much enjoyed my stay there. The owners were available and helpful to the point of where they lent me a bike to get personal groceries after I found out the one I rented had a punctured tire and the place was closed that day so I had to bring it in the next day. The place is very interactive with the owning family, but even as an introvert myself, I didn't have a problem with it. It just took a day to get used to. The room, unfortunately didn't come with any kitchen or refrigerator, but the family let me cut my fruit in their kitchen until I could make a little makeshift counter in my room with the table they provided, and then I just washed my dishes in the bathroom sink. The location is excellent, as well as their own little 'hut' by the beach with 2 beach chairs to enjoy the sun. The villa is about a 10 minute bicycle ride away from the 'centre', so I would definitely recommend renting one if you're going to be staying a while, as well as a small restaurant 1 minute walk from the villa that I would often eat at when it got dark with delicious local food and local prices. The family is amazing. Saman is very helpful with answering questions I had, and the wife and two daughters were both helpful and very sweet. Would definitely stay again!

    Esther2019-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Second time for us at Thenu Villa: the family is so welcoming and lovely, the food amazing and the price very good. The little private beach makes it even more special! If you are looking for something more anonymus, you better check in to a big hotel. This small homestay is lovely, personal and if you want to get in contact with other people, perfect! We will come back!

  • It’s a very beautiful house directly at the beach with an amazingly calming garden at the seaside. Loved our stay there. The only downside was, that our room had no ac and not really a way to get fresh air in, so it was really hot at night. But the rest was perfect, thank you!

    Susannah2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Radika's house has to be one of the loveliest additions to my trip. The house is so well kept and the hosts on ground/support staff so polite and eager to help. Made me feel very comfortable. Very close to the turtle spot and different shops and restaurants/pubs on the beach stretch.

  • Very cozy detached house in a guarded private area. 50 m to the beach. Delicious fresh breakfasts in front of the house were included and were lovely. The house has fast wifi and hot water. We were the first guests, so there was not enough furniture, but the landlord took this into account and promised to add it, I am sure it is a matter of time. The hosts are very welcoming and welcoming, in the shortest possible time they responded to any of our requests. I recommend for a stay!

It is not close to the ocean but there are neighbors only on one side. Peace and quiet !!! No dampness. A lot of living creatures around. We are thinking of booking next year. I definitely recommend it! Value for money. Thank you Dimuthu !!!

  • Truly can't recommend this place enough. It's the perfect example of an authentic family run business with hosts that genuinely care about your experience. We wish we could've stayed longer, as even a week doesn't feel like enough time in this slice of paradise. We had an incredible view from our room, with the beach being only a few steps away. It's tucked far enough away from the centre of Hikkaduwa to feel like a secret hideout, but is still within close proximity to everything you need. Our hosts were extremely helpful and gave us lots of tips/insider information to make our stay even better. Thank you again to Sanoj, Dylon, and family for a truly memorable experience! If we find ourselves back in Sri Lanka, we'll definitely be visiting again.

  • Sanoj's accommodation is top. The room is large, clean and with a great view of the sea. You can hear the waves to sleep. The breakfast was great, the lunch can be ordered if required-this was also great. The accommodation and with it the hospitality of Sanoj are worth a visit.

    Stefan2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved every second of our stay at Sailor's bay! Sanoj and hos brother are very kind and helpful. We had a family room, with direct avec to the beach and it was perfect! The room was clean and very well equipped (New AC, large bathroom with hot water, free WiFi, mosquito net,..) They don't serve lunch and dinner but they offered to order for us and served it as local food, in plates and everything. The breakfast is perfect! Best bang for the buck in Hikkaduwa!

    Daisy2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a steal deal and a gem! The description in the profile is completely accurate. You have the whole beach to yourself which is right in front of the room. The welcoming refresher drink and the morning breakfast were great! Would definitely stay here again whenever we next visit Hikkaduwa.

    Siddharth2019-12-17T00:00:00Z

  • Extremely grateful for the existence of this place. Accurate and one of the best locations right on the beach. Wonderful service by the hosts, highly satisfying breakfast (and the welcoming cooler!), lovely ambience. We had the ocean-facing room from where we could just get out, walk down a couple of steps and lounge on the beach/run into the water. Such a stay was the first of its kind for my family and me and if we visit SL again, we'll definitely come back here for a second one. Thank you :)
