This was the treat at the end of our break and didn't let us down. I travelled with wife and two kids aged 2 and 5. From the moment we arrived the owner was kind and friendly and showed us to our beautifully designed property. Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed a delicious evening meal that night and fantastic food throughout.
The owner was visible and arranged a tea plantation trip as well as pizza for the kids when they didn't have any appetite.
I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to be 20 mins tuc tuc from great beaches and 10/15 mins from Galle centre.
An idyllic location surrounded by monkeys, nature and top notch hospitality.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Myself and two friends arrived into Galle for a 3 night stay at the Country House Chalet. We were welcomed by the very friendly owner and were able to upgrade to the poolside chalet, which was definitely a good idea. The Chalet was much bigger and also right next to the pool - ideal! It was also quite quiet which meant we could start to relax as soon as we arrived after a long trip from Kandy.

The chalets are located in the grounds of the main house, and the whole place has a real jungle feel. There is a tea plantation situated just below the grounds. We saw lots of wildlife (birds, monkeys, fireflys) and nightly watched the bats fly over. We only had breakfast at the chalet, which was quite small (we have huge appetites) but it was healthy and tasty. There is also a little "chill area" where there is a dart board, some board games, and some comfy chairs to sit with a book.

The staff and owners were really helpful and friendly and always went the extra mile to make sure we were OK. The customer service there is second to none, probably the best we experienced in Sri Lanka. The hotel is a short tuk tuk ride from Galle. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to the other people

“Beautiful location great staff”
Reviewed 2 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed in one of the two bedroom chalets. We were welcomed on arrival by the Owner with a glass of cool juice and a chat. The bungalow itself is very stylish and perfectly clean and comfortable (with good wifi). The chalets are located in the grounds of the main house, and have a real jungle feel. We saw plenty of birds, monkeys and chipmunks, a mongoose, and nightly watched the bats fly over. The food is cooked by Mum and was delicious and plentiful - I was lucky enough to get her recipe for fish buns! The staff and owners were so helpful and friendly it really made it difficult to leave after a four day stay! Our daughter (12) absolutely loved it too, and the Staff were very attentive and kind. The location is a short tuk tuk ride from Galle/Fort and set back from the main road. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this little slice of paradise - it was a real high spot in our two week stay :)

My family (with two young kids) spent a night on our way back to Colombo. We should have stayed for longer.
This place was a bit challenging to find with Google maps not 100% accurate (relentless heavy rains and waterlogged main roads in the main town didn't help) but once we were there it was fantastic.
It's a modern chalet villa nestled in vegetation all around.
Nipuna is an excellent host. He made sure that we have all the information and support needed for a joyful stay. He is a 'yes' man when it came to odd requests and he always found a way to help. For e.g. We didn't expect him to ask his staff to buy a herbal medicine for my wife who had a bit of cough. Very thoughtful of him to have done that.
His staff were perfect too. We had a satisfying dinner at the villa itself. With light music (he has a secret to share here, ask him yourselves ;) ) and interesting conversations, the dinner experience couldn't have been any better.
The breakfast in the morning was suitably adequate. Kids enjoyed the infinity pool (even the floats were provided by Nipuna).
It was a short but memorable trip. We would be back!

“Oasis of serenity”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The country house is nestled in its own tea plantation, just outside the hustle of galle. Very quiet and secluded. Our two story chalet was spacious, modern and nicely furnished, decorated with artwork from the owner. With the infinity pool right on our doorstep it provided a perfect viewing spot for the monkey antics at sunset. Excellent home cooked traditional Sri Lankan breakfast and dinner. Delicious and a must do. Owners were very personable and friendly, they patiently taught us the Sri Lankan game of carrum. Highly recommend this as a place to stay.
