A warm welcome from Raelene and her very friendly staff after a long hot journey. Shown to a beautiful spacious room with huge four poster beds, two excellent 'benches' for suitcase, easy chairs, and veranda with chairs and table. Also a really nice en suite. All scrupulously clean. We had a dip in the little pool but the villa is...

HI Julia, and thank you for your review. We've tried to make Moonstone Villas a place you can really relax , enjoy the local flora and fauna, and I see that we were successful. Your comments are really appreciated.

Very lush and tranquil setting with a small but very pleasant pool that we swam in every day. Rooms were nicely furnished and had extra little touches like spotlight reading lamps. Owners Raelene and Anil were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Very nice rooms with large beds and private balcony. Very good breakfast with the best coffe I ever tasted in Sri Lanka. Everything was very clean and the staff was very helpfull.

Some guests wonder why I ask for a contact number and email address. This is why- on holdiay it is easy to forget a few things and sometimes they are important. When a guest checks out at Moonstone Villas, our staff immediately do a thorough check of the room for left items - and luckily we found your camera and...

Would definitely recommend this plays if you go to Tangalle. It's close to a more private beach than the main beach. Our room was big, nice and clean. The owner was very helpful and cared about her guests. Tangalle itself was not my favorite (would not recommend), therefore I was very happy that we lived at such a nice place...

Thank you for your comments. I am happy that you enjoyed the beach just 100 meters across the road from us. It is a nice quiet beach and I see in another review that the snorkeling is now good again as the coral has regrown after the tsunami. Small local towns are not for everyone, so i am also pleased...

Raelene runs a tight ship here! It is located just outside of town on the road to Mirissa. (10 min walk or 150rupees to town). It is clean, bright, friendly and has great food! The breakfast (which was included in the price) was a choice of Western, Continental or Sri Lankan. All were outstanding! Also opposite are 2 very good...

I have stayed here on 3 separate occasions and am sure will stay again. The rooms are airy and spacious, with huge comfortable beds (2 queen/double side by side, four poster with mosquito nets) and if on the top floor you have a very private balcony. The balcony or terrace areas of each room are very comfortable furnished with fabulous...

I wish I could have stayed for more than night. Our room at the back of the property was large, attractive, spotless, had lots of nice touches (flexible reading spotlights) and a very nice verandah to sit out, where the roof had been built around the tall trees, so you seem to sit in a garden. Raelene and Anil were...

I appreciate the comment about the pillows - thank you . Even though we do replace them regularly, they are probably not the same as your comfy one at home. Even though our property is small, and we have 9 rooms, as you say, many people visit the beaches, or local interesting places at varying times in the day. It...
