How to get there
Getting around The nearest bus stop is by Milton's Beach Resort at the bottom of our hill. For train services, there are more to and from Galle than Unawatuna. We can arrange pickup or drop at the train station for you. There is parking on site for two or three vehicles, depending on size. There is space for more, but if so they will have to reverse out! Please note that vehicles larger than a narrow 12 seater cannot access the approach road to the property. Please note also that we do not have driver accommodation on site, but there is accommodation within a few minutes drive and most drivers have their own preferred places. We can also arrange all your transport and sightseeing requirements for you, whether by tuk tuk or minivan.
