Ideal place to relax and catch that tan! Once you had enough of relaxing there is plenty to do in and around the house.


Being predominantly a Catholic Area, there are many very old charming Churches in Negombo Town and its suburbs. They are worth exploring.

The villa is provided with a field scope mounted on the balcony. From here you can watch all types of birds and get a close up on their fishing techniques.

There is something special to be said about the night life in Negombo, as there is a lot of fun and partying during nights, mainly along the beach front in the coastal belt where most famous hotels and guest houses are situated. Both tourists and locals get involved in various fun making and social activities to enjoy themselves, taking part in various events such as dancing, singing which make the evenings and nights full of fun, merry and enjoyment.

There are plenty of bars and cafés along the “beach road” with so much variety. We can provide transport to and from the night life area so that you are sure to get home safely after a night of partying!

You have the option to buy fresh prawns and crabs directly from the fishermen. Depending on the meal arrangement you have chosen you can either cook it yourself in the kitchen or on the BBQ or have it professionally prepared in the way you want.

Overall I would NOT recommend this place. I wish I saw the rating from other sources before I decided to stay here. The villa is located in a residential/village area in Negombo, which is quite far from the center of the city, where the beach, restaurants and most hotels are. So there is nowhere nearby you can dine or drink. The options you would have are 1. you have a driver to take you somewhere, or 2. have the house keeper cook for you. What I like about this place 1. There is a pool which is clean. 2. The house and yards are quite big, good for kids to run around. 3. The caretakers are diligent and stayed up late for our arrival. 4. Good view from the deck over the lake. 5. The owner respond to request timely. Now what I personally dislike: 1. Mosquitos and ants are commonly seen in the house, which might be due to the local hygienic standard and the open floor plan with windows and doors open at most time. However the mosquito net is hung using small wooden rings and consequently the space in the net is very small, like a pyramid. We got tangled with the net all night. My younger daughter woke and cried several times because of this. Besides it is very dusty and smelly, which kept me up at night. And not so strangely, I still got bites. 2. One AC is not working well 3. Low water pressure for one shower head and one tap only has hot water, almost burnt my friend's daughter’ hand 4. No one makes up the room 5. I was told there is a chef but it is the caretaker who does the cooking. Therefore he would charge extra Rs. 2000 and 1000 for cooking dinner and breakfast, respectively. While the caretaker is polite, I would not recommend his cooking skill. 6. I was told there is food pack but saw nothing in the fridge. Had to buy everything for breakfast and dinner, including spices and cooking oil. And pay for not-so-good cooking. When I raised my concern, the owner offered one free breakfast, which is nothing compared to what we suffered and I declined. Future users of AirBnB needs to see objective reviews. So two days without good sleep or good food, that is the summary of my stay here. It is not a well-run boutique hotel type of residence. My expectation was higher with the amount of money I paid. My personal view: it is overpriced for the service and condition. 我不推荐这个地方。 优点 1. 大,适合小孩跑来跑去 2. 有干净的游泳池 3. 管家勤劳 4. 二楼景致不错 缺点 1. 离市区远,周围没有任何餐厅 2. 有很多蚊子和(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)。蚊帐很小,很脏,有味道,经常搅在一起,非常影响睡眠。还会被蚊子叮 3. 一个房间空调有问题 4. 一个浴室龙头只有热水,差一点烫伤小孩;淋浴水压小,有一个淋浴头没有热水,完全不能用。 5. 没有人收拾房间和床铺 6. 没有厨师,所谓厨师就是管家,要额外付钱,不推荐其烹饪水平 7. wifi信号有些房间弱 8. 没有准备食物,需要管家临时去买 花了我认为较高的价格,获得了不能满意的服务,两天没有吃好睡好。
