“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 26 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We spent two weeks at this fabulous property. Where to start? So, great communication with Heather from our initial enquiry through to our arrival. She organised our transfers with the very efficient Susil and was on hand throughout our stay for any questions. She was the perfect host, driving us around on our first day to give us a feel of the area and taking us into Galle to show us around. The house was perfect, amazing views and a great shortcut down to the main road through her land and the adjoining temple land. Housekeeping was done daily with fresh towels every other day, laundry taken daily and beach towels provided. We didn't cook but the kitchen was well equipped with a well stocked fridge on arrival. Heather would coming bearing gifts of delicious local fruits and the very drinkable Lion beer. She organised an overnight trip to Yala for us and had plenty of advice if we had wanted to travel around more. Staying here ensures you are giving something back to the local area as Heather uses the services of local people where she can. We loved the location. Unawatuna beach is excellent, with plenty of good places to eat and drink. Tuk tuks are plentiful for the trip up the hill at the end of the evening. Galle is a short tuk tuk ride away with a great selection of shops and eateries and a fascinating history to explore. There is plenty of wildlife ,with monkeys swinging through the trees and a peacock coming onto the veranda part of an average day.
If you are looking to holiday in this part of Sri Lanka I can recommend Rock Mountain 100%. A fabulous house in an amazing setting we had a brilliant time and would book again.

this new built house is located on top of "rock mountain", surrounded by native trees with lots of birds, a great view to unawatuna beach, and there is always a fresh sea-breeze.
the property is very clean, and furnished in a good taste. the very comfortable beds, and most of the furniture is made from recycled coconut timber, made by local craftsmen.

the beach and unawatuna town center you can reach in a easy 10-15min walk over a local path.

if you have any questions, ask the owner of the property, a very nice lady with great travel experience. i'm sure, she can help.

Thanks for your review,Adrian
Great feedback on Rock Mountain...and I'm pleased the travel itinerary I suggested for you and your friend worked out so well...you were lucky to see the leopards at Yala!!
When I told my builder Jayantha,that you wanted him to make you a copy of our recycled coconut wood beds..he just laughed,and asked how much to post to Switzerland!
You'll just have to visit again,and enjoy more comfy nights here!
Thanks again

The location of the property is perfect if you want to get away from the noisy tourist spots and enjoy the sounds of the birds who are visiting this lovely garden. Still, Unawatuna beach is not more than couple of minutes away by car. The property itself is arranged with a taste and it's all brand new. There's a full equipped kitchen at your convenience. Our favorite spot in the garden is a large lake surrounded by rocks.

The owner is a lovely lady who helped us in organizing various tours around it's surrounding. She has a very good contacts and she'll make sure you'll get unforgettable experience.

I would highly recommend this place!!
