This luxury Villa in Mirissa sits proudly on a clifftop filled with palm trees, enjoying exceptional elevated south-facing ocean views. Enter the gardens from the main gate and meander along a herringbone path through the trees, to emerge at a breath-taking view of the Indian Ocean. The grand front door beckons you forward onto the vast teak planks. The gardens are terraced, and four of the five bedrooms share the top terrace with the sitting room and large veranda, whilst the fifth bedroom is accessed from a lower level terrace.
What to expect in this 5 bed Colonial Villa in Mirissa, Sri Lanka?
On entering the house, four large arches dominate the high ceiling in the main living room, creating a unique space, separated by antique furniture and comfy sofas. Hanging from the centre of the ceiling is a large iron chandelier adding to the grandeur. Extending out from the main living space towards the Indian Ocean is a veranda, decked with a dining table, wicker furniture and an appealing day bed… the ideal spot to lap up the view.
Overview: This is one of THE most exclusive villas on the island due to its incredible cliff-top location. Off the beaten track, well away from the main road and next to a functioning Temple. If you are looking for peace and relaxation, villa # 23 will satisfy you. Good staff with an experienced chef. Well maintained. Although there is an open pond and an un-fenced pool, the house is child-friendly.
Things to be aware of: The bedrooms and bathrooms could do with an upgrade to match the view. The guest beds are queen size and the Lower Ground bedroom is a spillover, as this room is normally used as a Library. The sea can be rough out of season. Children need to be supervised in the pool/on the beach. Beach is small and not good for swimming. The villa is approx. 50 mins from Galle.
The positives: Exclusive and relaxing. Close to the beautiful Mirissa beach, with beach bars and seasonally safe sea and swimming. Good and experienced staff and chef. Owner-managed. Two meditation pavilions on the cliff-top overlooking the ocean. Infinity edge lap pool. South facing.
THE BEACH & LOCATION
Distance to airport: approximately 2.00 hrs, depending on traffic.
Grand white stone steps lead down from the veranda to the terraced garden, and the lush green lawns are framed with bright white walls and shaded by swaying palms. The lower terrace is blessed with a chic infinity pool and views leading over the treetops out to the ocean. The rectangular pool is surrounded by stone tiles, an outdoor shower and sun loungers at both ends. These gardens are dotted with the Sunset Pavilion, a Meditation Pavilion, and Yoga Pavilion as well as hammocks.
CLOSEST BEACH: This property is beachfront. Steps wind down to another garden with a private wooden gate, leading out to the beach.
CLOSEST SURFING BEACH: Madiha Beach, 5 mins tuk-tuk ride from the villa. Good for experienced surfers. Alternatively, Mirissa Beach break 10 mins drive, good surfing for all levels.
CLOSEST SEASONALLY SAFE SWIMMABLE BEACH: 10 minutes drive (Mirissa Beach).
Situated at the entrance of the villa, two en-suite rooms mirrored in design, hide behind antique doors. One serving as the children’s twin with two single four-poster beds, the other as a guest double with a four-poster queen. The rooms are light and breezy with the wooden galley entrance adding a certain nautical feel.
Above these bedrooms, accessed via a stairway hidden in the wooden panelling, is the mezzanine room complete with Satellite TV, DVD Player and a vast array of books and board games.
On the opposite side to the entrance is a second guest double with windows opening out to the English-style garden, running the back length of the house. This room enjoys a double four-poster queen and en-suite, and like all the bedrooms, enjoys air conditioning and overhead fans.
The final bedroom, the master suite, also leads off from this side of the living area and has a four-poster queen bed, surrounded by windows. It includes a day bed, which can be adjusted for small children. A corridor illuminated by an oval window (another nautical touch) with woven stone tiles is lined by long timber floorboards. This intriguing architectural addition leads left to the en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. The en-suite also has its unique Pointe Sud touches, including a water cupboard (WC) toilet and separate shower cupboard, both with floor-to-ceiling white, broken tile mosaic. Twin sinks and a large wooden ladder for a towel rail can also be found. The corridor provides access to the private outdoor garden, complete with a bathing pavilion.
The 5th bedroom stretches the length of the house in a unique tunnel shape and houses a double bed as well as sofas. This bedroom, complete with an en-suite, is accessed under the main outdoor steps that lead down to the garden.

“Absolutely fantastic first-class stay!” – Date of stay: February 2020
“We were a large party working in Sri Lanka. The location with its own private beach was sublime! We were looked after so well by the in-house team the best humans you could ever possibly want to meet. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was out of this world typically Sri Lankan and so fresh! I would recommend this villa to everyone I know. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!”
“Sensational” – Date of stay: July 2019
“Our stay at the villa was fantastic, hidden away off the main road. On a huge plot of land running right down to the beach. The accommodation was tastefully done in the old colonial style and very comfortable and relaxing. Chef preparation of food was first-rate and the team there was very attentive and we wanted for nothing”
“We will be back!” – Date of stay: August 2018
Thank you so much to everyone at the House. The villa was perfect, really beautiful, with outrageous views. The chef was incredible, super drivers, and the house staff were beyond excellent! We loved our yoga on the lawn every morning, lazing by the pool, heading to the beach for long walks before hitting the waves at Mirissa beach. The cycling adventure through the tea plantations and visiting the Nation Parks added to our time there. We can not wait to come back.
