Silva Tree-house is a peaceful, secluded tree-house on the Rumasalla headland between Galle and Unawatuna Beach, on the South Coast of Sri Lanka.
It's quiet and private, and only a few minutes from the beach at Unawatuna and the Galle Fort.
The house is a steel and glass tower that rises above the canopy of the trees. Three bedrooms on the first floor are within the trees, keeping them cool and shaded. The top floor is above the canopy and is a single, glass-sided hall with sofas and kitchen and a balcony that looks over jungle to the sea.
The house is rented on a bed and breakfast basis. Mrs Ira, the manager who lives next door, is a great cook and can provide any other meals you require. She's also an ayevedic masseuse and completely reliable baby-sitter.
We can arrange airport collections and tours for you.
If there are less people our rates come down.
The house is rented as a whole. A watcher is on site at night, but otherwise you have the place completely to yourself.
There's no neighbor in sight of the house. You look across a valley to the tip of the Rumasalla headland and the Peace P(website hidden), and then the sea.
The elevated position of the house provides a cool breeze, and absolute privacy.
A walk to Jungle beach on the harbour takes 10 minutes. The walk to Unawatuna Beach, through the villages, takes 20 minutes. The house has a mobile phone with the number of a tuk tuk driver who will arrive quickly and take you to the beaches or to the Galle Fort, which is about a 10 minute drive.
Other Things to Note
Please note that there are stairs. And while the house is safe for children, it may not suit elderly people with mobility issues, or the parents of very active small kids.
tree-house is beautiful house! We love it some much! Good view and very safety.!My friends and I just stay 2 nights, it's short time for us. We want to stay long time when we're come back. Vincent is very nice, I can't find the information on my mail box for map and other detail things when I will to sri lanka one day, I sent message to vincent, he reply me quickly and sent mail again and double check with me. When we arrived house, I saw Mrs Ira, she cook the lunch for us! We're very hungry, she's cooking very nice. And Vincent write some information on kitchen's board. We can call tuk-tuk driver, he is also warm and nice talking. I'm worried about for my driver, because we have 5 persons, we can't travel other city by tuk-tuk, we need van. Mrs Ira help me contact Mr Prageeth. He also give me much information about my schedule, I finished my plan and also have enough time for shopping souvenir. If you're looking for driver just send mail to Prageeth. Mail: (email hidden)
The tree house is an exceptional place with great architecture. It is great to sit above the trees with the sea breeze and watch the birds and monkeys pass by.
La maison est vraiment magnifique ! Le lieux magique ! Une expérience incroyable !
Mme Ira et toute sa famille sont aux petits soins, nous vous conseillons d'essayer le massage.
Un lieux qui change des hôtels et des guest house que l'on a pu faire jusqu'à présent ...
Vincent's Tree house is absolutely incredible ! I would have never imagined finding such an original house in Sri Lanka.
The location is perfect, on a quiet Hill away from the very touristy Unawatuna.
Prepare yourself to discover a truly unique, cosy home. The architecture is so original, you will feel so great among The High trees, the surrounding forest.
I remember the simple pleasure of just sitting in the confy sofas in The main living Room, looking outside The huge windows, it was a great memory and a wonderful expérience.
The building is so well integrated in The landscape, it's like living in a decoration magazine !
Not to mention, the lovely cook and her daughter that took such a good care of us. Breakfasts, lunches and dinner were incredible, Sri Lankan style, not too spicy and having them on the huge wooden blue table were each time the highlights of the day !
In a nutshell if you're looking for a wonderful place to relax, apart from The touristy and Busy Galle coastline, off the main tracks, it is THE house you have dreamed of, and it will remind you the reason why airbnb exists!
Staying at the treehouse was an incredible experience. The house is stunning and in such a peaceful and beautiful location overlooking the jungle. It is right by jungle beach, a small beach in a bay much nicer than the main one at unawatuna, and a short TukTuk ride from Unawatuna and Galle. John (Vincent's dad) was so helpful and responsive from the moment we booked, providing really detailed house notes and handy tips. Best of all Mrs Ira the housekeeper was a real treat bringing home made delicious Sri Lankan food to our door! We were in Sri Lanka for 2 weeks in total and didn't manage to find nicer food anywhere else! This is the perfect location for an independent and relaxed holiday away from the tourists and resorts. As a couple it did work out quite expensive but was worth every penny, and the price is cheaper that the pretentious hotel Levels across the bay. Would love to come back!
