Do you offer food at your villa ?
yes, we have a menu card and you have several choices. As we are doing everything
without employees, we are unable to cook different choices for each and everyone.
All our ingredients are fresh, vegetables are mostly from our own garden and are
organic. Fish is definately fresh, as it is sold right in front our doorstep, but we have
to know in the morning if you want fish in the evening. The wife of the house is a
fantastic cook, western or local cuisine, spicy or not will be respected.

of course, your kitchen is fully equipped with cookery and crockery. A gas oven is
there, a refrigerator, a toaster, a water cooker and everything else what you need.

absolutely. The ground floor has a separate entrance which you can lock. A portion
of the garden is for your private use and we are not entering it. In the kitchen is a
bell, if you need us, we are there to assist you. You can come and go whenever you
want. if you like to interact with us, we are happy, if you want to be alone, we
how far is the beach ?
our beach is about 150m away from the villa. It takes not even 5 minutes to walk
there. At the point where you enter the beach, swimming is not so favourable as
there a fishermen with their nets. But after another 3-5 minutes to the right, you
find quiet places with rocks.
Another possibility is to have a 10 minute drive with a TukTuk to the tourist beach in
Moragalla, where all the hotels are. There you find many shops and restaurants.
Many hotels selling also so called pool tickets for the whole day and you are entitled
to use the pool, a deckchair and you get a towel.
what kind of transport is available to get somewhere ?
On the main road (150m) is a public bus stand. At the same place is a TukTuk park.
We have a SUV and a TukTuk (wife's brother). You can decide which mode of
transport you want.
Do you offer excursions ?
yes, for tours in the vicinity we can organize our TukTuk or vehicles for you. If you
like to go on a round tour for several days, we organize a well experienced, well
mannered driver for you, which is driving very carefully. We also watch that the
vehicles have fully insurance and are in a good roadworthy condition. Prices and
tour examples you find in a brochure which we made.
Are there any extra costs ?
No, there are no hidden costs. The apartment rate includes the breakfast, the
moderate usage of all electrical items, also the air condition, the gas which you
might use for cooking as well as the initial amenities like toilet paper, mineral
If the initial amenities (toilet paper, mineral water, soap) are used, we can provide
you for a concessional rate i.e. mineral water (20 l for 3 Euro) the necessary supply.
Food, if you decide to order from us, as well as beverages are charged.
As electricity and internet are expensive (no flatrate) in Sri Lanka, please use both
carefully. If you are leaving the house, the air conditions and ceiling fans should be
switched off. Using the A/C approx. 12 hours per day or night ,doesn't matter, it is
included. Using the internet just to write some mails, check your FB or send a few
messages via Whatsapp is alright. Uploading all your 800 holiday photos to cloud or
FB, can easily exhaust our GB allowance per month within a night and we have to
charge extra for that.
what about undesired animals in your property?
in all the 15 years after we built, we had around 4-5 snakes in the garden. It was
always the same kind, the so called rat snake. It is a non poisonous, non agressive
snake which feeds on mice, rats and other small animals. It is completely harmless.
Mostly these animals are more afraid from you as you from them. A small movement
from you and they are going away. We try always our best to avoid to make it com
fortable for them. So we don't keep mounts of leaves of wood aroud, and flushing our
water drainage system in the property regularly with cerosine oil, which they hate
like the devil the blessed water.
Very rarely we have a spider, also non poisonous.
We have, and we can only minimize it, some cockroaches, as we are in a tropical
country. We clean and keep clean, which keeps it under control.
Everywhere you find small lizzards of around 4-6 cm on the walls. They are
extremely useful kind and harmless animals which are feeding on insects including
what desirable animals we can see at your property ?
Despite our pets, a great dane, a local dog and two cats, you can see many kind of
birds, like parrots, king fisher, colibri, herons, other exotic birds and of course the
little squirrels. Other animals like mungo's, turtoise can be seen sometimes.
