About us, our villa, Hikkaduwa and holiday in Sri Lanka

Our villa is a 150-year-old house of the colonial period with antique furniture, which, together with the architecture of the house itself, gives a special style to this place. Large living room with TV and sofa, dining area with kitchenette. On the terrace with a beautiful view of the garden you can have breakfast, drink coffee or work on a laptop. In a huge garden with palm trees, fruit trees and flowers there is a place for sports (volleyball, badminton, horizontal bar), a large glade for yoga, hammocks, open kitchen with barbecue. We have a nice, cozy and quiet place and only 5-7 minutes walk to one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka - Narigama beach. More details in the review.

The house has 5 rooms for guests and they are all different: double and twin, a large double and a family room for 4 - with private bathroom, a budget twin with a shared bathroom. All rooms have access to a large common living room, equipped with fans and mosquito nets. Weekly cleaning with change of bed linen is included in the price. You can look a photo and check the price in section "rooms"

For single and budget travelers, backpackers and and those who love company, we recently opened our own mini-hostel in a separate house in the courtyard. Room with 3 double beds for 6 people, ceiling fan and good protection from mosquitoes for a comfortable stay. A panoramic wall with a magnificent view of the garden is a distinctive feature of our hostel in Hikkaduwa.

The nearest to us and the most famous and popular beach is Hikkaduwa - Narigama. Its length is 4 km. From November to April, this place is ideal for surfing. In winter, the water is quite calm, the descent to the ocean is flat, the sand strip is up to 100 m wide. On the beach there are many cafes and restaurants with free sunbeds, schools for surfing and diving, renting boards. Next to the beach of Narigama, toward the center of Hikkaduwa, coral reefs begin, and behind them a small beach where you can feed large turtles. Behind the turtle beach there is a wonderful place - Laguna, with shallow water, where there are practically no waves, because on both sides it is surrounded by coral reefs. It is an ideal beach for families with children, but here it is usually the most crowded.

Stunning place - Horton Plains and Mount Peak of Adam, which, according to legend, left a mark on the Buddha himself.
