As its name suggests, this secluded property is distinguished by its idyllic location within sight and sound of the Indian Ocean. From the tranquility of the veranda, watch the waves crashing onto a long golden beach often visited by marine turtles, whilst coconut palms in the extensive 23-acre garden sway softly overhead, their leaves rustling in the gentle breeze. Emerald parrots noisily dance between the trees, butterflies provide flashes of colour and the crescendo of chirruping crickets reaches its peak come nightfall. For wildlife lovers and outdoorsy types, this natural setting will hold particular allure.
The villa was designed to frame the views of the sea and of the extensive palm-shaded grounds, and is light, airy and generously proportioned. Although the villa was only constructed in 2004, the tall arched doors opening onto balconies, the cool polished floors, the high ceilings and pillared verandas seem to be more reminiscent of the Dutch colonial era than of today. Cushion-plumped seats and dining tables in and around the villa make relaxing a treat and dining a pleasure as there is always something to watch – from birds in the trees to ships bobbing atop the deep blue ocean waters. The villa's remote, rural location is also incredibly restful; it's easy to lose track of time here as stresses and strains simply melt away. This is a place where friendships and family bonds can be renewed.
Children are bound to love it here; the gardens are huge, the beach is sandy and the large T-shaped swimming pool, enveloped by a wide deck scattered with sun loungers, is fenced for safety. Indoor entertainment is provided in the TV room, which is air-conditioned for comfort. Staff are on hand to cook (provisions at cost), and keep the villa clean, although the large well-equipped kitchen is freely available for guests' use too.
There are few diversions here, however the region is slowly developing. Savour this rare slice of seclusion or, for a change of scene, embark upon half-day trips to wildlife-filled national parks such as Yala, Uda Walawe and Bundala.
