“JE from the United Kingdom”
Stunning. Spoiling. Unforgettable. Beautiful house with plenty of space to gather with friends as well as a hideaway in the afternoon. Attention to detail unsurpassed…it has everything. We had such fun and will hopefully be back very soon. Thank you.
“Matt M from Hong Kong”
“We felt so privileged to be able to stay in the villa, there is NOTHING like it in Sri Lanka. I actually had to drag my wife away from it… (she actually said ‘if the owners ever want to sell please let us know – I will have to keep working hard!!’) It was by far the most relaxing part of the holiday and we look forward to returning, hopefully later this year.”
