Does the property come with a pool?

Yes. We have a 9.15 metre x 4.58 metre swimming pool in the front garden, which is a much safer environment for children to swim in than the open ocean.

Is there a housekeeper to clean the rooms?

Yes and this is included in your rental price. Some of our guests want their bedrooms and bathrooms cleaned daily, some don't. All we ask is that you make your requirements clear to Mahinda at the beginning of your stay so that we can properly cater for your group.

Can you prepare meals for us?

Yes! Although the beach house is offered on self-catering terms, we can prepare meals for you and serve them to you wherever you want to eat them. Our past guests particularly recommend the seafood BBQ. We won't be beaten locally on price either!

Is electricity included?

Unit tariffs increase with usage and so electricity bills can quickly become very expensive in Sri Lanka. Due to having some eye-wateringly large electricity bills in the past, and for environmental reasons, I want to encourage you to use energy conservatively. I therefore decided to include a free daily allocation of 35 units (kilowatt hours) but charge a heavy usage tariff of Rs100 for each additional daily unit used on top of this. Daily usage below this allocation will be freely included in your rental price.

How long does it take to get to you from Colombo Airport?

The beach house is 110km south of the airport and two recently-opened expressways now make the journey possible within 2 hours if you avoid the rush hours.

Can you arrange airport pick up?

Yes, but this is a local service arranged by Mahinda and not included in your booking fee. All vehicles are air-conditioned and have seat belts. Prices depend upon the type of vehicle you require for your group but a car for 2 people would cost Rs12,000, Rs14,000 for a van and if there are 8 of you and you have lots of luggage, you might need to hire a large mini-bus for Rs16,000.

How far is the nearest restaurant?

There are plenty of restaurants within a very short walk up and down the beach but the nearest one is right next door!

How far away is the nearest surf break?

The main surf break is about 1km north of the beach house, which is an easy stroll up the beach even with a surfboard under your arm!

Is the ocean safe to swim in?

No! The ocean directly in front of the house is too dangerous to swim in. Just enjoy the calming effect of watching the waves crash in front of you and use the swimming pool instead! For calm swimming water, you'll need to go to the coral sanctuary in Hikkaduwa or along the coast a bit further. This can easily be arranged through Mahinda.

Where is the nearest supermarket?

The nearest supermarket is 1.5km north of the beach house.
