We had really bad weather during our stay at Olu Beach villa around christmas time. Despite this, we had a great time there. The property is as advertised, literally on the beach. My kids had a blast playing on the beach and in the pool. The property is adjacent to the main road so a bit noisy during the day, but this did not bother us much. One thing to keep in mind is the very limited number of restaurant options in the area. Mostly, families would have to rely on the meals cooked by the staff or self-cater. There are good grocery shops accessible by tuk-tuk so this is manageable. The villa is most appropriate for families with young kids who want to play on the beach and the wonderful garden. A great stop for 4-5 days before exploring rest of the country. The owner of the villa is a phone call away and very responsive.

The Olu Beach Villa, is a perfect stay if you want to be in Sri Lanka and relax. It is located between two towns, so your away from the busy traffic and tourists. Its worth is so much more than what you pay. The staff here is perfect, and I recommend taking advantage of what the cook can do. The meals are delicous and were made as directed. We enjoyed the open space of the home, with all the doors, and windows open.
We wanted to relax, and enjoy the peaceful sunsets on the beach. This place is perfect it for it. Its close to some large tourist areas, if thats what your looking for. The staff helped us with all transportation and local shops for the best pineapple and wines.
It is so much better in person, than what any photo may show. Everything worked and was clean inside the villa. The staff is there, but you still have your own privacy if your worried about that. The ocean is safe for swimming, and we had no problems. At times during the day, the waves can be very large, not good for surfing as they crest right on the beach, there is no sand bars for them to form and crest before hitting the beach just as a heads up. We enjoyed our stay, and will return for sure.

This place was absolutely beautiful. We stayed here for over a week and we still regret we couldn't stay any longer. The beach villa is lovely decorated and feels like home. When you wake up you just have to walk out of the garden and you can have a nice refreshing swim in the sea without any other tourists. By moonlight you can have a shower in the bathroom that is located outside (there are also bathrooms inside btw). We remember relaxing in the garden under the swaying palmleaves whilst enjoying the view of the Indian Ocean. The food was fabolous which we got to enjoy several times. Wasante and Sarat (staff) were very friendly and hospitable. We would like to thank the owners, Nirmala and David for their great suggestions and warm hospitality. Hopefully we have the chance to come back to this beautiful place.
