A former coconut plantation provides the backdrop for this stunning post-modern villa. Simplicity, serenity and proximity with nature are reflected in the house, the 20m lap pool and the 2 acre garden. Staff of 2 housekeepers, 1 gardener.
The property consists in 4 houses: the main house with the kitchen and sitting room, the Ocean villa with two bedrooms and en suite bathroom, the White Lotus villa with its own sitting room, bedroom and bathroom and the Tree House, built in wood, with its two large bedrooms and bathroom. The property can comfortably sleep 11 adults.
The full property is accessible to guests. The house was built by our family who have been coming to Sri Lanka for 20 years. The area is still very local, and it is important to respect local customs on the property and on the beach.
Interaction with guests
The house is fully staffed: there are two housekeepers and a gardener. Darshika understands and speaks some English but she is not fluent. The staff are extremely friendly, they can cook local food on demand. Kandewattha has been designed so guests have full flexibility to ask the staff for help or cook themselves . Dharshika and Madu are not professional cooks but they can prepare local meals if you let them know in advance. They will pass you the bill for the cost of buying the food on a daily basis.
Breakfast can be Western or Sri Lankan. For lunch and dinner, there is a simple menu to choose from.
If you would like to cook yourself, you can find plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables at the market in Tangalle. There is also a supermarket, Cargill's Food City, which stocks all the basics but does not sell any wine or spirits.
Other things to note
The property is located on a small hill overlooking the sea. This means guests have to go up some stairs to get to the house as cars have no access up on the hill. There are about 3o stairs> We prefer to share that these stairs could prevent elderly people to go up and down during their stay. Luggage can be carried by the staff.
We would like guests to respect the house and property as their own. Although we are children friendly, the property is not ideal for young children. They would need constant surveillance especially near the pool which is not fenced.
