“Amazing house”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

we had a fantastic stay at Little Cove. It is probably the most beautiful villa I have ever stayed in: very tastefully decorated and furnished, great beds, lovely garden/pool... we even had monkeys visiting us in the morning. Location is perfect on a beautiful beach with just the right amount of infrastructure. On one side the beach is perfect is great for surfing, on the other side calm for swimming even with little children (which is rare in Sri Lanka). Service at the house is great, Roman the manager does a fantastic job. Food at the villa was excellent. We stayed at the villa for every meal and it was always delicious. The only downside of staying here was that we compared every accommodation on our trip afterwards to Little Cove and always concluded that we should have stayed longer

“Perfect for everyone”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My family and my sister's family stayed at Cove Beach House for a week in October 2015. We stayed in the "small house" and my sister's family stayed in the "big house". Both are amazing properties in thier own right and ideally suited to this kind of break. Both families could hang out as and when we wanted to without tripping over each other. Roman, the general manager, and his team did a brilliant job looking after us, suggesting menus, getting fresh food everyday and then preparing and cooking the most amazing meals. Roman made us all feel very welcome and comfortable, and had great ideas of things to do around the area, facilitating trips for us when we wanted, eg to the Handunugoda Tea Factory near Galle. The beach house has amazing views of the beach, which is a great surf spot. If you want you can wander down to the beach and grab a beer at the beach bar. We had a great time and have booked it again for next year. Highly recommended.

“Magical Views at Cove House in Sri Lanka”
Reviewed 24 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

From the moment you pull up the drive you are transported to a tropical paradise. Cove House has the most magnificent view my eyes have ever seen and Little Cove is a private oasis in the middle of a perfectly manicured jungle. On your short walk to the beach you'll be escorted by the resident pup, Kiley. If you enjoy surfing or sunbathing this is a perfect spot to enjoy the day. Each morning we enjoyed tea by the pool watching the family of monkeys swinging through the trees. The 2 homes on the property are thoughtfully designed not missing a single detail. Each home has their own pool, spa like bathrooms and beautifully designed massive bedrooms with the most comfortable beds you'll ever rest your head. Daily we enjoyed the most amazing food starting with fresh banana smoothies, coconut crepes, eggs made to order and roti. Our favorite dinner was pepper crab and lobster with soups so delicious my mouth is watering as I type. The staff is warm, welcoming and accommodates your every need. They do it all from organize a tuk tuk in to town or schedule a massuesee to come to your room - no better way to end the day.

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I stayed in Cove House, three years ago, and was extremely happy. Staying at Cove cottage did not disappoint. I loved the secluded jungle feel of the cottage and the sophisticated decor and accommodations made it feel more like a 4 Seasons bungalow. I am so happy I discovered this hidden gem!!!

“An Amazing Secret Gem!”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Tucked away from the main tourist traps in Southern Sri Lanka, lies the most beautiful, charming little villa. I travelled with my boyfriend and another couple and stayed for 4 nights.

We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay... From the hassle-free transfer from Colombo, the fresh pineapple juice on arrival, the above-par cleanliness and of course, the incredibly friendly, super helpful staff that were more than happy to go above duty to ensure our stay was nothing short of amazing. The food was ABSOLUTELY, insanely fabulous; we ordered our meals every morning and Roman went to the market each day to buy ingredients.

We were sad to leave and our accommodation later in our trip did not even compare to Little Cove. Dickwella beach, a one-minute walk from the villa, served all our surfing and relaxing needs, and we really enjoyed hanging out with a drink at the beach bar down on the beach.

We will most definitely be back and would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends. Thank you again to the amazing staff who made our stay in Sri Lanka memorable and enjoyable! x
