Description from owner

Description

A spacious villa with a fence around the property and a beautiful wooden gate. Only few minutes from the beach and set in a quiet neighbourhood. The bedroom balconies are overlooking the backyard were you will find a polished cement patio with a dining area, a built in BBQ, work space, a huge dining table and seating area! A relaxing place to have breakfast and dinners or to entertain friends. The front garden is green, lush and full of flowers and a lily pond.

Both bedrooms, located on the 2nd floor, comes with a double bed, wardrobes, mosquito net and ceiling fan and AC.

Both Bedrooms have balconies overlooking the backyard with coconut trees and flowers.

The house has one spacious tiled bathroom. With shower, bathroom vanities, wood counters, washer machine, hot water and a place to store things one might need in a bathroom:)

Spacious open kitchen with polished cement counter tops. Including a gas cooker/hob and an oven, refrigerator, hand blender, hot tea kettle, blender, toaster.

The livingroom is an open and airy space with stairs leading to the bedrooms upstairs. It has a sofa with big cushions, table, butterfly chairs, antique furniture and flat screen TV. Two large doors opens to the front garden.

In the front of the house there is a terrace with roof, fans, and a seating area overlooking the garden.

We love to wake up in the morning, have a tea or coffee at the front terrace, while watching monkeys and other wildlife do their morning rituals.

The house is in a very private spot with no neighbours close to the property.

Close by you will find a small supermarket, post office, pharmacy, restaurants and other shops.

After enjoying the beach-life at Unawatuna beach, you will love how quiet this spot feels when you close the gates behind you. No noise from the disco and bars.

Galle town is about 2 km from the house. Here you will find most things you might need, utilities stores, supermarkets, fruit and vegtable market, fresh fish and seafood, wine shops and clothing shops. Galle Fort is also an amazing place to visit with small streets, antique and jewellery shops, tea/coffee places, interior shops, and a spectacular walks on the fort wall.

Theres is a supermarket, post office, and a pharmacy in about about 5 min walk from the house. There is a big antiques store about 15 min walk away that is great to visit if you are a treasure hunter. Theres is no ATMs at the beach areas in Galle district. ATM machines is to be found in Galle City 2 km away. Very few places on the beach takes credit cards of any sort.

My husband is Sri Lankan and we have family close by.

They take care of the house and garden. If you have any questions or requests they will try their best to help.They can help you get a car with a driver or order a Tuk Tuk to take you the short ride to the beach.

For a set fee and upon request, my sister-in-law will come and cook a meal of local curries for you and guests. Served the traditional way. This to be enjoyed in our lovely backyard at the huge dining table and seating area.

Towels and linen is included. Maid service 3 times a week.

Every morning Sarath comes to attend and water the garden.

We can provide pick up at the airport. To easiest way to get to the house from the airport, is by hired van with a driver, taking the new highway. There is a small toll fee for using the highway. There is also buses and trains leaving from Colombo, situated about 40 km from the airport. To avoid the traffic, try to schedule you arrivals in the early morning or late night.
