“ABSOLUTELY STUNNING”

You could not get a better location in Weligama. Being able to walk straight out the back gate into the ocean made it easy to surf multiple times a day. It's a great beach for beginner surfers. It's also a stone's throw from sunset cocktails at the nearby hotels, or you can even just make them at the house.

The house was amazing with rooms and common areas to cater for large groups. Beds were comfy too.

The staff are super friendly and always happy to help. They helped us book a safari tour which turned out great. Our stay for a week flew by, I could have easily stayed longer.

“Perfect Beach Holiday”
Reviewed 28 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

My family and I travelled to SL in November last year, and had a fantastic time at The Boathouse on Weligama Bay. The house is well designed for an extended family (we had my wife's parents with us who had the private cottage suite), with numerous sitting areas but also spacious, bedrooms and ensuites.
We had planned to do a lot more site seeing around the area, but ended up staying at the house most of the holiday - just what we needed in terms of reconnecting and not having a time agenda. The staff were accommodating and organised dinners for us with short notice, and we sat on the beach or deck for sundowners every day. Perfect.

Thanks again for having us - we really enjoyed this trip.

“Dream holiday”
Reviewed 26 March 2018 for a stay in November 2017

A beautiful house in a fantastic location. From my initial enquiry through to my departure the team at the Boathouse couldn’t have done any more to make this holiday perfect. Luxury galore! A huge thanks for making everything so easy, fun and memorable. Planning our return already

“Breathtaking house in great location”
Reviewed 26 March 2018 for a stay in July 2017

My family and I stayed in the boat house for just under two weeks, the house itself was incredibly spacious and I loved the décor! I wasn't sure what to expect before coming about the location but the beach is literally on the door step -which was so special and also incredibly convenient as we spent most of our days on the beach surfing (the waves were actually perfect for my beginner level). Overall there was a really chilled atmosphere and I loved the food! - the staff were lovely and breakfasts were amazing everything so fresh and locally sourced -so much fruit and freshly baked bread and tea.

We had a great holiday at The Boathouse. Michelle was very easy to communicate with and the staff were lovely. Location is excellent and we surfed constantly. Alternated between Neeta'S great curries in and dining out. Would highly recommend as a holiday rental location and experience.
