Peaceful yet conveniently located antique house ten minutes to beach, southern highway and Galle Fort Unesco site. See full details and photographs under Coconut Grove listing

The space

As the Garden room is separate from the main house, it is very private. It has direct access to the pool from the shower room. The room is rustic in style yet with all mod cons and a superior bathroom.

Guest access

The guests have use of the pool, gardens and the Garden House Verandah.

Interaction with guests

Depends whether the guests want privacy or to socialize

I do have three rescue dogs, all well behaved and gentle so you must like dogs!

Jude's house is beautiful. It is stunningly designed and it was a pleasure to stay there with my son for 5 days. The location if the house is close enough to restaurants, Galle, dive centres and surf spots to make it all very easy. Chaminda is the house biggest asset and completely looked after us - he's also an amazing cook. We will definitely be booking in again.

Judith's place was indeed an 'Inland paradise', The gardens were lush and tropical and we enjoyed relaxing by the pool side and unwinding from our busy trip. The Villa was decorated beautifully. The house keeper, Chaminder, provided us a wonderful breakfast every morning (one of the best on our trips!) and also cooked us lovely meals in the evening. We could not have ended our Sri Lanka trip in a better way!

Judith is not only a brilliant interior designer but also a very gracious host. From the very beginning of our communication, she was quick to respond and ensured I had all the information needed to get there. Once I arrived, I was blown away. Her home is just that - paradise. A beautiful retreat with all the amenities you need (and more) and only 5mins away by tuk tuk or a 10-15mins walk to the beach. Most of the time I didn't even want to leave the house though as it is extremely therapeutic. Her staff are extremely friendly and professional and I truly felt cared throughout my stay getting the perfect amount of privacy and quiet but also having someone around if needed. I was also lucky enough to have the chance to chit chat with Judith for a bit despite her busy schedule and truly enjoyed her company - she made me feel right at home and even woke up early to make me a snack and coffee before I left which truly touched my heart. My only regret is I didn't plan more days south coast to stay here for longer but hopefully there will be a next time. I thank Judith and her staff for everything and would highly recommend this location to anyone who gets the chance.

Six of us stayed for 5 nights at Judiths villa and everything about our stay was wonderful. The villa is beautifully decorated and furnished, a lot of love and care has gone into making it a very relaxing and comfortable home. Chaminda, the house manager, went out of his way to make sure our every need was catered for - he's a fabulous cook, arranged day trips for us, planned a NYE dinner on the beach and showed us how to play croquet! Nothing was too much trouble. Judith was very responsive to any questions we had before arriving and arranged our transport to the villa. We didn't need to reach out to her during our stay as Chaminda took care of everything. Really could not have asked for any more from our stay. We'll definitely be back when we return to Sri Lanka. Thank you, Rose

Es waren zwei wundervolle Tage bei Judith. Ich wurde sehr herzlich begrüßt, Judith ist reizend und hat mit sehr viel Geschmack dieses Haus eingerichtet. Überall entdeckt man etwas Besonderes. Ich habe im Gartenhaus gewohnt, es war alles so wie beschrieben und wie man es auf den Bildern sehen kann. Das ganze Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt, den Pool kann man nutzen, morgens ist er sehr erfrischend, nach einem erlebnisreichen Tag ist es sehr angenehm sich dort zu entspannen. In der Dämmerung fliegen hunderte von Fledermäusen am Himmel und im Garten kann man viele Glühwürmchen sehen. Die Hausangestellten sind sehr bemüht und diskret. Chaminda macht ein vorzügliches Frühstück. Am Nachmittag gab es Tee und Gebäck, man möchte nicht mehr weg. Ich kann diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen.
