An inviting and relaxing, peace of heaven, to enjoy your stay in Sri Lanka / Tangalle, Little House is a 35 square meter space, including a 12 square meter of private veranda in beautiful garden.
Our holiday house is close to one of the most beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka, about 170 km from Colombo.
It was designed ideally for a couple wishing to enjoy a relaxing vacation. In the house you will find a comfortable queen size bed with mosquito net, a shower with hot and cold water and separate WC .
We add a fully equipped American kitchen if you wish to cook your self.
You should visit the top of the property, where you can admire the breathtaking view of the ocean and the nearby peninsulas, and some pretty spectacular sunsets. If you take a walk in the property, you will probably be able to observe the local fauna : tropical birds (peacocks, woodpeckers, kingfishers, sea-eagles...), monkeys playing in the Tamarind tree. After sunset, stars and fireflies will always be there to enlighten your nights…
The Little House also features an outdoor table and chairs, for privet dining or just to relax, stargaze, read a good book, or to simply meditate with the natural surroundings around you. We offer free Internet access up in the restaurant area if you choose to get connected...or some limited internet in the house.

Lovely little hideaway for 2 in a laid back seaside village. The Little Tamarind team are helpful and friendly, and the neighbours too. Food at the hotel and outside in the village equally superb. The quiet beach 3 mins walk away is sublime, and the little sea food shack an absolute treat. We ate there everyday! I hope we'll be back soon.

The house is very nice and clean. The only problem for us was that the windows and the door of the house is just across the main entrance to the complex. That may be not an issue but we just wanted a bit more privacy. The Silent beach is the best beach I have seen in Sri Lanka. It is just perfect. So if you want beach relax holidays that is the right place to do it here.

Little tamarind is a rustic little mini house at the bottom of the hotel. It is a few minutes walk away from silent beach, the most beautiful beach ever (although swimming at this beach is not possible due to waves) and also only a few minutes from fishermans bay, a tiny beach with slightly calmer waters. All the staff are super helpful and go out of their way to make sure you are happy and have everything you need. The staff even cooked us a meal after we went to the market to buy a load of fresh vegetables which was amazing. The house is probably a little smaller than the photos lead you to believe but it suited us fine. The kitchen is very basic but perfect for easy breakfast or lunch. The bed is a little short so if you are tall your feet will hang over the edge!! We spent most of our time up at the main part of the hotel which has the most amazing view. If you are visiting tangalle then I would highly recommend staying here!

What can I say, we arrived hot and bothered after an hour in a Tuk Tuk and we arrived to heaven! The little house was perfect and so lovely decorated! Besides the beautiful surroundings the people were just amazing, the helped us at every corner and the food was delicious. We smiled the whole way through and what they have at the little tamarind is a hidden treasure. If you are looking for a little slice of peace and quiet then I would stay there in a heart beat! I would go back for the beautiful scenery but to see Sonni and the guys again :-)

Great independent little house set in a wonderful and interesting garden of nature. We saw lizards, monkeys, squirrels, and all kinds of fabulous birds. Close to silent beach which is great for interesting swimming. A nearby beach is good for snorkling. Tangalle great for shopping and eating out. A great curry at the bus stop Station. Vibrant markets. Staff very helpful and willing. Sri Lanka s great place.
