All meals at cost. 10 minutes walk to beach or free daily tuk tuk. 4G wifi with up to 5Gbs/day usage included, Satellite TV, books and games. For groups of up to 14, please see separate listing. Situated just 10 minutes walk from the beach, down a path and steps past a temple (or about 15 minutes walk by the road), the villa is located at the edge of a small village community at the top of a steep and bumpy hill. You can dip in and out of the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Unawatuna as you wish, while enjoying a quieter and more authentic experience of Sri Lanka than in resort accommodation. We also offer a free daily tuk tuk down to Unawatuna or to the beach at Mihiripenna. Our villa manager, Upul, speaks excellent English. He will arrange everything for you and will prepare all your meals and shop for you as required. All dietary requirements and preferences can be catered for. Meals are not included in the rental price, but the only additional cost is for the ingredients and transport, so you can eat what you like. The kitchen is modern and well equipped, but please note that the villa is not configured for self catering. Guests are, however, welcome to bring their own alcohol and drinks. Enter the front porch, kick off your flipflops and enjoy the feel of the cool polished cement floors underfoot. Through the central living room, you emerge onto a large wooden railed veranda and outdoor dining area, with plenty of seating for 10 people to dine, relax and enjoy the view. Down the granite steps you reach the grassy terrace, where the water sparkles invitingly on the pale green slates lining the 50ft infinity pool. The entrance to the pool has wide, shallow steps, perfect for parents to play with toddlers, or to sit and enjoy a drink. The infinity end reaches 6ft deep, but is furnished with narrow steps where you can stand to gaze at the scene below. Eagles can sometimes be seen both overhead and swooping down below the pool. There are both sunny and shady areas and plenty of comfortable sunbeds and a hammock around the pool. Furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture and artefacts the villa highlights natural finish teak woodwork, custom made teak, jakwood and painted furniture, handloom fabrics from Vyanni of Unawatuna and original artwork by artists from all over Sri Lanka. The villa has 5 bedrooms, all with aircon, ceiling fans, four poster beds, mosquito nets, lockable wardrobes with plenty of hanging space, small fridge, safe, tea and coffee making facilities and ensuites with walk-in rainshowers and toiletries. All ensuites have non-slip slate floors. Apart from the Cinnamon room, which is located on the ground floor at the front of the house, all rooms enjoy a large balcony or veranda with ocean and pool view. Wheelchair access is possible to the ground floor. The cardamom and cinnamon rooms, lounge, kitchen, dining and veranda area are on a single level and the pool area is linked to the main house by a grassed, sloping path as well as steps. Further details are available on enquiry. Further details: A maximum of 2 children using cot beds or sharing a bed with parents may stay free of charge. A child using a separate bed is classed as a guest. We have 2 cot beds, 2 baby feeding chairs and a playpen. Smokers are welcome, but outdoors only, please. Airport transfers, local transport and all sightseeing requirements can be arranged on request. The lounge has a 47inch HD TV, with a 120 channel satellite package. There is 4G wifi with up to 5Gbs/day of usage included. All guests will receive a fact sheet of information about the area, with sightseeing and activity suggestions, prior to their visit.

How to get there
Transport to or from the airport or elsewhere can be arranged. If booking your own transport, please be aware that the last 70m metres to the villa is via a narrow, unmade road. It is accessible by a long, narrow 12 seater minibus, but anything larger will need to stop at the turning and we will ferry guests and luggage the last few metres by tuk tuk. Please note that there is no driver accommodation at the villa, but there is a place 5-10 minutes drive away. If arriving by train, there are more trains to Galle than Unawatuna, so we would suggest taking a tuk tuk from Galle. If arriving by bus, get off by Miltons Beach Resort and take a tuktuk up the hill.
