Perks for the Parents

This grand yet fun family villa lies directly on Habaraduwa beach, just 10km from historic Galle Fort in Sri Lanka. It sleeps 8 + 6. This home is the perfect place to get away from it all - you can walk from the luscious L-shaped pool through to swaying coconut trees and onto the spectacular, super soft sand of Habaraduwa beach for a true taste of unadulterated paradise. There are 4 luxury ensuite bedrooms, 1 of which has an extra bed, plus a children’s bunk room, so there’s plenty of space for families to share with friends or bring along grandparents.

Why Kids Love it

The villa comes with a baby bath, crib and high chair on request for babies and a fantastic colorful bunk room for older kids and teens. There’s a TV with satellite channels, as well as toys, body boards and a pool table to entertain kids of all ages and a grassy lawn suitable for croquet, soccer and cricket matches. They’ll love playing in the pool and there are opportunities nearby for surfing, beach watersports and whale watching.

Things to Know

The property is hosted by a professional management agency who can help with any concierge requests. Rates shown are for 8 adults (+6 children). The courtyard pond and pool are not gated so younger children should be supervised at all times. Rates include on-site staff, cleaning and gardening supplies. Taxes and additional services are not included: ask the hosts if you require transportation, nannies, chef services, massage therapists, extra housekeeping or a private driver. The house has plenty of parking if required.

About the Location

The villa is located 20 minutes away from Galle, on the south coast of Sri Lanka. The historic city of Galle is known for its car-free streets with architecture reflecting 16th century Portuguese, Dutch and British rule, including the 18th-century Dutch Reformed Church. The villa itself is centered between Talpe Beach and Koggola Beach. You can walk down the coast to Koggala Beach or take a short drive downtown where you can visit shops, playgrounds, surf schools, a Sea Turtle Farm & Hatchery or a Crocodile watching lake. The airport is 2.5 hours away.

Accommodation Details

The villa has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Arriving through large wooden gates, you’ll find lion fountains and a purple pond full of carp. On your left is the immaculate and well-equipped kitchen, furnished with marbled stone countertops and white-washed walls, as well as a large open plan living/dining room with a bar. There are 2 suites on the ground floor: 1 faces the covered dining space by the pool whilst the other has large glass doors facing the garden and beach. Both are ensuite and come with kingsize beds, air con and overhead fans. Facing the pond, by the stairs, is the TV room which leads to a wooden stairway to the children’s ensuite bunk room (6 single beds). Outside of the children's bedroom, on the wide landing is the pool table. Either side of the veranda are 2 primary suites, both with inviting ocean views, 4-poster kingsize beds and ensuite bathrooms.

Style Notes

Tropical beach house. The hosts have decorated with simple white walls and natural wood materials, creating a neutral backdrop to frame those beautiful ocean and garden views from every window and sliding door. Grand 4-poster beds and structural wooden pillars have a subtle colonial style, while simple contemporary furnishings are perfect for modern day families. We love the locally-inspired wall art, the colorful pops of turquoise and pink, as well as the clever glass partitioning in the living area.
