Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Unawatuna, Galle District, Southern Province
A colonial house in tranquil gardens situated close to the beach.

A comfortable veranda nook is perfect for meals as is the outdoor table. The hammock completes this perfect spot to relax and enjoy nature in private tropical gardens.

My youngest daughter (9 years old) started to cry so we had to leave in a hurry. My theory is, that we arrived...
