    Description

    Description:
    Ideal for those wanting a relaxing getaway, the villa is situated in a stunningly beautiful location on a hillside overlooking Koggala lake, just over a mile from the beach and 25 minutes from Galle, but in total tranquillity, far away from the noise and crowds. Set in a 1.5 acre tropical garden, at the end of a finger of land extending into the lake, it is accessed via a 200m track through the cinnamon plantations which are the only neighbours.
    The villa has 4 staff and our villa manageress, Sonali, speaks excellent English and will ensure you have a wonderful time. She is also an exceptional cook and will prepare all your meals and shop for you, if you wish. 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.
    Completed in mid 2012, using antique doors and windows and gaining a National Construction Association award, the villa is a mix of traditional charm and modern comforts, laid out to maximise the glorious views across the lake. The villa was designed to be naturally ventilated, benefiting from an 8-15m elevation over the lake and its cooling breeze. However, to give guests additional choice, we now have aircon in the two downstairs bedrooms, as well as ceiling and floorstanding fans.
    Entering the property you have fantastic views across the infinity swimming pool to the lake and the extensive garden which surrounds the villa. The main living room has a comfortable sitting area with 3 large daybeds, cool polished cement flooring and grand staircase going up to the first floor. The fully equipped kitchen with 2 large fridges is accessed through an archway while the other end of the sitting room leads you to an air-conditioned cinema/games room with a 49 inch TV screen, extensive hard drive film library and a DVD player. There is also a range of games and plenty of reading material. 4G WiFi with up to 5Gbs/day usage is also available.
    Panel doors open out from the kitchen and sitting room onto the 20m veranda which forms the main outdoor dining room and living area. The 10ft dining table comfortably seats 10 and the seating area has plenty of loungers, chairs and a large coffee table, all overlooking the 50 x 22ft infinity pool. All outdoor floor surfaces (including the inviting pale green slate of the pool) have been chosen for comfort and are non-slip under your bare feet.

    Bedroom and bathroom details:

    All four bedrooms have views of the lake and have ensuite walk-in shower rooms, with solar powered hot water and rain showers, plus lockable wardrobes. There is a safe in the master bedroom. All bedrooms have mosquito nets and are cooled by ceiling fans, floorstanding fans and natural ventilation. Two bedrooms are located upstairs, offering a panorama of the whole lake. The master bedroom (7.5 x 6 m) has wooden flooring re-laid from two antique houses and a 4 poster superking size bed. Bedroom two (5m x 4m) has a polished cement floor and two large single beds (110 and 115cm wide), which can be pushed together. Both rooms have 4 poster superking size beds and overhead fans. They share a vast balcony with built in seating to either end and a wooden balconied central area with wooden loungers which forms the perfect spot to relax and take in your beautiful surroundings. Upstairs balcony doors and windows may be left open at night, allowing you to wake up to the glorious morning light on the lake.
    The third bedroom (5 x 4 m) has its own veranda and sits alongside the pool. It has a superking four poster bed. The fourth bedroom (5 x 4 m) is situated garden side, offering a particularly private location closer to the lake. It has a private veranda with seating and a superking size four poster bed. These two bedrooms now have aircon as well as fans.

    Location Details:

    The garden attracts a variety of colourful birds from kingfishers to peacocks. Monkeys and monitor lizards are regular visitors and a special attraction is the evening fly-past of hundreds of fruit bats, as they circle the lake on their nightly flight to the inland jungle to feed. On a clear night the lack of light pollution makes stargazing a must.
    Chill by the lake and call out to the local fishermen for their catch of prawns, fish and crab and have Sonali prepare them for you. Alternatively, go prawn fishing on the lake at night and catch your own dinner. Take a boat trip on the lake (either motorised or local catamaran). Walk down the cinnamon track and along the road to the long, sandy beach (around 25 minutes), stopping to chat with the local schoolchildren. If you can tear yourself away from the villa, the World Heritage site of Galle fort is about a 25 minute drive away and makes an enjoyable day out. Whale watching, diving & snorkelling, temples, wildlife safaris, beaches, shopping and restaurants are all easily accessible and transport will be arranged on request.
    Arrive by sea plane from Colombo airport and land on the lake, 15 minutes from the villa, or transfer by road in about 2.5 hours.

    Pool Details : 50 x 22 ft slate lined infinity pool, with waterfall rock face below.

    Staff Details: There are 4 staff: Sonali (Cook/ housekeeper) and her husband, Lasantha, who looks after the house and swimming pool, Raja the gardener and Saman, the nightwatchman.

    Additional Villa Notes:

    Wheelchair access is possible throughout the ground floor bedroom 3, lounge, kitchen, cinema room, office, dining area and veranda are on a single level. All doors are doubles and the carport is linked to the main house by a flat path.
