About this location

Southern Province region

The last house along a track and overlooking the beautiful and tranquil Koggala Lake, the Lake House is ideally located to provide total seclusion but yet be close to the historic Fort of Galle. There are luxury hotels and restaurants nearby where you can sip a cocktail, dine out or even go dancing. Beaches of all kinds are within easy reach and the house is so close to the sea that you can hear the gentle sound of the waves at night.

There is lots to do: go bike riding into the country lanes and tea plantations, play tennis, body surfing, surfing, scuba diving and snorkelling, boating and fishing on the lake and exploring Galle.


The area near Galle in southern Sri Lanka is one of the prettiest and most popular destinations in Sri Lanka. The pace of life is different, the food is good and the people are delightful. The coast is relatively unspoiled and Galle Fort has been carefully protected to maintain its historic buildings and atmosphere. For those interested in wildlife, Yala national park is not too far away with plenty of game: elephant and leopard in particular. But, even if you just stay at the Lake House, all manner of wildlife will cross your path from giant porcupine to monitor lizards, and the monkeys swing through the trees next to the house and, much to our annoyance, sit on our roof. (its annoying because they can break the tiles!)

"Idyllic, amazing, fabulous,.."

From the moment we arrived we felt very at home and relaxed. The team of staff, especially Ranga, bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. Setting and outlay of the villa was simply amazing. We were very concerned with mosquitos prior to our arrival, however, the owner spent sometime explaining the breeze which is enhanced by the villa structure and it's lakeside location reduces the problem of insects. We found this to be totally true.
Food, the pool, the resident dog all made our stay perfection.
We will definitely be returning.
