Respect for Nature and Each other.
Wolley made our stay very easy and comfortable. All our immediate needs were taken care of. He arranged pick up from the airport as well. The photo's and description were very accurate. What was very special for us was all the wildlife and the lake front setting. There is so much to see in that hidden away garden; mongoose, squirrels, giant lizards similar to the Australian goanna and many kinds of birds and insects.
We stayed for 5 days. In that time we got to see the busy little town of Ambalangoda, go for walks on the beach and swim in the lake. despite the train passing close to Yasmine Villa we never felt that it compromised the overall tranquility and feeling of being relaxed, especially at night when the balmy breeze from the lakefront sweeps in and the fireflies come out.
Well well, dont really know where or how to start !!! I fell in love with this place before even visiting it, my sister and i initially booked it for 1 night but ended up extending for 6 days u till the end of our vacation, we wouldve stayed longer if we could but we had flight bookings to take!!! The house should be called "paradise on earth" specially to those who appreciate nature, peace, serenity, quietness and animals :) the location is better than good, its 5 minute walk to the market where u can literally buy everything that u need, the beach is just across the street and its one of the most breath taking beach stretches i have ever seen, and above all, the garden of the house is on the river, what more can you ask for??? You get to see and hear the animals and insects the whole time and nothing would even matter or bug u from the beauty of the place!!! We never actually got to meet Wolley in person as he had urgent work and he had to stay away BUT he was in contact with us on a daily basis making sure everything is going well and offering all kind of help and assistance which was great and much appreciated !!! On the other hand, "Kasun" who works there was more than just amazing and hospitable, we instantly felt at ease dealing with him and he really did take care of us a lot, plus he is a great cook :) the outdoor kitchen is just perfect, u get to have ur meals in a green beauutiful garden facing the river !!! We saw animals like geckos, monitor lizard, mongoose, frogs, fireflies, birds, wow everything is magical !!! Was soooo sad to leave, cant wait to go back, this place is more than just recommended !! Thank you soooo much wolley and kasun, we cant wait to be back there :)
Ein wunderschöner Ort der Ruhe mit einem paradiesischem Garten! Wolly selbst haben wir während unseres Aufenthalts nur einmal gesehen, telefonisch war er aber immer für uns erreichbar. Außerdem hat sich Kasun, ein Freund (oder Angestellter?) von Wolly, bestens um uns gekümmert. Sehr zu empfehlen!
der garten ist super schön und die gastgeber sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich :) leider haben wir nicht gleich gemerkt das wir nicht die abgebildete Unterkunft bezogen durften sondern in einem haus weiter hinten im Garten einquartiert wurden. Fanden es etwas enttäuschend das das völlig kommentarlos passierte. Die beschriebenen inklusiv Kanus für die Lagune waren zu unserem Zeitpunkt leider nicht verfügbar (alternativ bot man uns eine recht teure fahrt auf einem Katamaran an) und die FREE Coconutdrinks wurden trotzdem berechnet. Trotzdem kann man an der Preis/Leistung (50% Aktion /9€) nichts aussetzen aber halt nicht ganz wie beworben. Die Umgebung fanden wir bis auf die direkt anliegende laute Bahnstrecke super. Empfehlenswert wenn man auf das Lokale günstige Essen auf der Straße steht und trotz. schnell in Hikkaduwa sein möchte.
Leider war die Unterkunft an andere vermietet unf ich war mit dem Ersatz nicht zufrieden. Gegen Aufpreis wurde mir eine andere Unterkungt am Strand vermittelt. Ich hätte aber lieber das Zimmer bezogen, was ich ursprünglich gebucht hatte: mit Blich auf den See, nicht weit zum Strand, in gute Nähe zu Restaurants und Geschäften in Ambalangoda. Der Vermieter war aber nett und bemüht. Ich werde eine 2. Versuch machen, wenn ich wiederkomme...
Wolley's place is where you get an experience of life in rural Sri Lanka. The peaceful tranquillity of the garden, a nearby uncrowded beach and the warm-hearted friendship of Wolley and Kasun will make your stay memorable. The accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. An outdoor kitchen is available for preparing breakfast and meals throughout the day although you have the option of having them made for you at an extra charge. For me it is the best value accommodation I have ever had in Sri Lanka in all my 20 years travelling to this beautiful island.
