we have enjoyed our stay in the old lady villa very much. Our wedding went perfectly. Team working in the villa is very nice and hard-working. Siri is a great manager, nothing is a problem for him, he can also organize tours all over island and transport wherever you need. Chef cooks amazing, you can tell her whatever you would like to eat and she will cook it and it will taste amazing. Tarindu, Priya and three others (sorry, names were hard to remember )are very friendly and hard working. So thank you for such opportunity to have our wedding and vacation. All the best wishes for your villa business.

We stayed here as a group for a 40th birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb too and rooms clean and comfortable.

We will most definitely be back next year!

We were a pack of 18 from all over the world staying at Old lady for 3 days.
It was such a wonderful stay

Rooms
We had the whole place for ourselves and since we advised as to what time we were arriving all the rooms were air conditioned and ready for our stay. The rooms are actually of the standard of a 4 star hotel.

Staff
We were welcomed by the team there with a welcome drink and hot towel. And they are soo friendly. Special mention to the beautiful PULLY, the dog who will always accompany you wherever you go. Siri and his team was just amazing.
Yasanthi the cook was the best. You can name whatever and she knows how to cook them the best way it could. Loved every meal we had.

I am planning another trip to Sri Lanka in April, and planning to book again to take my friends.

Highly recommend to anyone who would love the beach and a place to relax.

“Perfect venue for a large group offering fantastic value”

Our extended family of 14 stayed here for 2 weeks July / August 2014.
*The staff were extremely welcoming & accommodating. Siri the manager went out of his way to ensure our every need was met.
*The grounds were of good size & layout. It was perfect for a big group/ family vacation with children of all ages.
* The swimming pool was well maintain & surrounded by lush manicured lawns
* The house is located on a beautiful beach (only suited to seasonal swimming) the property is split in two buildings old & new. The 'old lady's 5 bedrooms were a little dark & dated & the noise pollution from the traffic was at it’s worst in the morning. Whereas the ‘young lady's 4 rooms were much brighter, modernised & mainly hosted the sound of the crashing waves from the ocean.
* The property is located equal distance from Galle & Hikkaduwa - local bus & Tuk Tuks are easily hailed out side on the main road.
*The house dog Puli was adorable and although dubious she was excellent with my young children.
I would definitely recommend Old Lady at the Sea, it was a perfect venue for our family & fantastic value - we hope to return one day!

Nice to read that you would like to come again .
The governement started to build a by-pass road from Hikkaduwa to Galle , so that the road on which we are situated will be used in futur only for local traffic .

We spent a wonderful 2 weeks here. staff were very friendly. The location was beautiful. There is some traffic noise but most hotels along this stretch of coast would suffer from this and I felt it was a small price to pay as the house and garden were so lovely. Food was the best we had in Sri Lanka and was very reasonable as we were presented with an itemised supermarket receipt at the end of the day. . Siri was so helpful and nothing too much trouble for him. The house felt like a home from home. We were so glad that we stayed here rather than an impersonal hotel. Have to mention Puli the dog ... I dislike dogs but loved Puli. They now have a new kitten called Brownie ..... our children could not put him down.

As for the traffic noise : the governement started to build a new by-pass road from Hikkuduwa to Galle , so that in futur the coastal road will only be in use for local traffic .
