English owned and run, Jalaya House is a newly built villa on a beach overlooking Dondra Head Lighthouse, the most southerly point of Sri Lanka. We have two ensuite guest rooms in the main house which are offered on a B&B basis. You can step out of the front gate on to a safe, sandy, swimming beach, and the famous Dondra Temple and Dondra Head Lighthouse are a short stroll away.

The space
The bedroom has a super-king sized double bed and ensuite shower room. Double doors open out on to a deep, shady verandah where you can sit and relax before jumping into our inviting 8.5 metre saltwater swimming pool.

Where you’ll be

Dondra, Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Kiralawella is a friendly little fishing village on the outskirts of Dondra, set on a beautiful sandy beach (safe for swimming) overlooking the lighthouse. The locals are very welcoming and love to make new friends so do expect to be invited into their homes for a cup of sweet tea and a biscuit.

Dondra is famous for being the most southerly tip of Sri Lanka. Look out over the ocean and be awed by the fact that there is nothing but water between here and Antarctica. Dondra was once the capital of Sri Lanka and is home to the oldest and largest Buddhist temple on the island. Across the bay, and visible from the house is the iconic Dondra Head Lighthouse, the tallest in South Asia, which is built entirely of stone shipped all the way from England!

Originally from England but now proud to call South Sri Lanka home where I live on a beautiful sandy beach with views over the bay to Dondra Head Lighthouse, the very southmost tip of the island. As well as welcoming guests to my own home, I manage the bookings for a number of other superb Sri Lankan properties on behalf of their owners - a collection of South Coast luxury villas and a charming hill country cottage.

During your stay

Jalaya House is my permanent home and I'm always happy to sit on the verandah and chat over a drink whilst watching the sunset, answering your questions about the local area, things to do and Sri Lanka in general. I am also happy to have my brain picked about the realities of buying land and building a house here (easier than you think!). Padma my lovely local housekeeper is here to service your room and make your breakfast - you must try her Sri Lankan Omelette :) Padma can also cook you a delicious traditional rice and curry dinner by arrangement (weekdays only, additional charge).
