The Beach House

Welcome to The Beach House

Its name might be commonplace but The Beach House boasts a character and charm that other villas strive for. Tatler magazine described it as “a shining example of barefoot luxury”.

Offering five double bedrooms, it is understated with a well-worn elegance. A perfect retreat from modernity sitting next to one of the island’s most beautiful and (for the busy southern coast) quietest stretches of beach.

Barefoot charm

The Beach House is available as a single, private property and offers four double bedrooms and one single bedroom – comfortably accommodating nine.

All bedrooms are en-suite with some boasting lovely outdoor bathrooms, all uniquely styled and laid out. Three double bedrooms sit within the main house and the Pool Room and Garden Room are in the large garden.

Idyllic dining

Wonderfully fresh seafood of course makes a staple of time at The Beach House. The house chef will prepare set menus but tweak according to preference. Sri Lankan curries are available as are simple western dishes – pastas and salads - ideal for light lunches by the pool.

All meals are paid for – the cost of the ingredients – directly to the house staff.

Meals are most often served on the terrace to the front of the house but tables can easily be arranged in the garden, by the pool or even on the beach.

Here’s what our guests say

“Perfectly peaceful and idyllic, a dream holiday…the house over flows with love & laughter…”
