Offering peace & tranquility - White House Villa sits on the edge of Bird Lake, just 10 minutes inland from the town and beaches of Hikkaduwa on the south west coast of Sri Lanka.
With a modern open plan interior inviting cooling winds from the lake, the villa has 3 spacious bedrooms, all with bathrooms attached, aircon, fan and bed nets. The lounge and dining areas open onto the garden verandah, over-looking the terraced gardens and private pool with views across the lake. A fully equipped kitchen leads onto the breakfast patio. The top roof terrace provides more space for relaxing and sunbathing with sunbeds and towels for guests use.
A full time housekeeper (in separate accommodation to the front of the villa) takes care of cleaning and organising transport, trips and any other requirements.
Many species of birds can be seen in the gardens and in and around the lake. Trips in traditional fishing boats can be organised as well as kayak hire from a nearby hotel.
Locally bicycles, scooters and motorbikes are available to rent daily or weekly, otherwise local 3-wheeler taxis (tuktuks) or vans can easily be arranged for transport.
Bird Lake is situated just a few kilometres from the bustling town of Hikkaduwa - with fish and vegetable markets, banks and a large range of shops, hotels and restaurants. There are many activities on offer: diving, surfing, snorkelling, swimming & kite-surfing.

He will keep the villa & garden clean and tidy, make arrangements on your behalf, sort out any requests all the while maintaining a discreet presence.
