Situated half way between Colombo and the airport. It's a three bedroomed property with a 10 metre pool,cabana to relax. The nearby village is charming, with waterways and multi-coloured fishing boats. Here you can observe village life so close to the city. Visit the fish stalls and buy the catch of the day, if you enjoy cooking, also our resident caretaker can arrange food deliveries from nearby restaurants as well as your transport requirements to explore the neighbourhood more.
We are located just 20 minutes from the airport via the highway and 40minutes from Colombo. An ideal location as a base and home environment for your Sri Lankan adventure! We can comfortably accommodate 6 adults, but can expand to 10 as we have 4 camp beds.
The house is beach fronted, but it's usually too rough for swimming, however there are calmer stretches of water nearby.
You can watch the fishing boats, sunsets and crashing waves from our small garden pavilion or our large balcony.
The house is very private and has a large garden with flowering shrubs and a 10metre swimming pool.
All the rooms have fans and air conditioning.
There are well stocked supermarkets and fresh seafood is available, straight off the fishing boats a couple of kilometres away and you can see village life at its most charming. We also have a BBQ which can be fired up to grill the catch of the day.
Our in house caretaker is able to make breakfast at extra cost. Lunch and dinner can be organised and delivered via nearby restaurants if you don't want to cook.
Guests will have access to the private pool, TV, cable channels, and free wifi and the beach.
Interaction with guests
Our cook and caretaker can understand English. I can be contacted by either email or mobile phone between 9am and 9pm and live in Colombo (45 minute drive away). The caretaker's mobile is listed as the secondary contact (his name is Bernard) and can be contacted for directions and any other logistical matters.
Other things to note
We have a large private garden full of flowering shrubs and trees where kids are safe to run and play and a 10metre swimming pool.
Sadly no pets are allowed but stay as you would in your own home.
Also no smoking in the bed rooms but one can smoke in the open areas and thus eliminate passive smoking. Caretaker manager stays in the house as pool and garden have to be maintained. Request quiet time after 11pm.
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
I've been practicing medicine for 40 years, now retired. Lived in the UK for 30 years and other far flung parts of the world, now watch lots of cricket! also reading fiction books and managing the beach house.
