This Budget beach view villa with a pool in Tangalle was designed and built by a British family who lives in Singapore. It is a perfect getaway for a group of friends and families (preferably older children, although there are no age restrictions, we think Adults, Nannies, or babysitters should always keep an eye on the little ones) away from the hustle of the towns. The ocean-facing house is located on the crest of Mahawella headland, facing due south towards the famous Hoo Manyia blowhole.

REVIEWS

Date of stay: January, 2023

“Nice big open villa with a great view of the ocean . Alex and his wife are really lovely people and looked after us superbly . Food was great . 10 mins to Hirekitya by Tuk Tuk”

“A very nice villa looking over the ocean, with a little private shore” – Date of stay: April 2022

“My favorite stay during my trip to Sri Lanka ! Clare was an amazing host very helpful responds quickly and catered to all our demands it was a pleasure chatting with her The house itself is so beautiful! So quite nothing but you and the sound of waves Decorated in a simplistic and elegant way. We spent some time enjoying the pool and just contemplating in Silence the beauty of the surrounding You even have access to a private beach The house manager Alex was more than happy to arrange transportation for us and took extremely good care of us ! Special thanks to his wife for the delicious food !”

“Amazing location with Ocean view.” – Date of stay: March 2019

“Stylish modern building designed for that outdoors indoors feeling. Nice long infinity pool. Share your stay with iguanas, monkeys and a myriad of birds!”

“This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location” – Date of stay: October 2018

“The property runs down to the water’s edge, with a small, wave-lashed and very private beach, and the house is set up above the sea, high enough to have a fantastic view, yet near enough to always hear the waves. The house itself is thoughtfully designed with all rooms enjoying the fantastic sea view. No air-conditioning but louvered doors and ceiling fans keep it cool enough and allow enjoying the sound of the sea. A huge living room area with open kitchen makes it easy to just hang out, along with a decent-sized pool in the garden below the house. The house and guests are looked after by some very kind staff, who cooked us delicious Sri Lankan breakfasts and dinners – it’s really fun to let them introduce you to the many different fruits and vegetables available in this corner of the island, and get food that is much more homey than in a restaurant (though I’m sure still not as spicy as the staff would have liked). Away from the house – though we hardly felt the need to leave – the local beach is mainly used by fishermen, but now getting a few small restaurants on it; there are produce markets to visit by tuk-tuk in Dikwella and Tangalle (both approx 20 mins away); a surfing beach at Hirketiya with more backpacker-style cafes. Overall, we had a fantastic stay here, totally recommend it if you get the chance to visit.”

“This home is such a gem” – Date of stay: April 2018

“Physically, it’s beautiful in a natural way. Floor-to-ceiling wooden doors run the entire length of the home and retract to make the living areas and the bedrooms a true indoor-outdoor experience. (It’s hard to capture in pictures, but the openness of the home is amazing). We spent hours playing games at the indoor-outdoor dining room table and lounge area, watching the monkeys, gardens, monitor lizards and other wildlife who frequent the garden. Bedrooms are beautiful and simple with local bedding and mosquito nets, bathrooms large and lovely and with jaw-dropping ocean views as well. Everything was so thoughtfully designed and — from what we can gather — with minimal environmental impact (hot water is solar-powered, a rainwater collection system is used, etc.). The pool was just right for either lounging or playing. The surf “hid” the private beach during our stay but the rocks were amazing to rest on and just stare at the sea. Our 7 year old played baseball and cricket in the large garden for hours. The two cooks/housekeepers took wonderful care of us, cooking eastern or western breakfasts (a different one every day!) and more lunches and dinners than we could count. We just passed them cash and they provided detailed receipts and change at the end. Our children didn’t want to dine out because they loved Sandiya’s food so much — excellent curries, fresh fish (bought on the beach down the hill that morning), roast chicken, etc. They wanted to please and it showed in the delicious food they prepared with great care each day. Another thoughtful design decision was the creation of a separate prep/staff kitchen on the other side of the home so you still have your privacy even when the ladies are cooking. Staff quarters are between the entrance to the property and the main home and someone is always there to help if needed. The pool person and gardener were on property almost every day making sure everything was “just so” for our family. A house phone is provided so you can easily contact the housekeepers, manager, tuk-tuk driver, etc. at any time. We enjoyed the beaches a short walk away as well as the “surfer’s beach” accessible via a 10-15 minute tuk tuk ride. Surfer’s beach was great for wave watching and riding (our 7, 11 and 13 year old kids all had a great time boogie boarding). A large collection of toes-in-the-sand casual restaurants with both eastern and western food was a plus. All in all, this was the most heavenly way to experience the southern beaches of Sri Lanka. I don’t think we’ve ever “unplugged” on a vacation like we did at the House. We feel grateful the owners share their exceptionally beautiful home.”
