From your own little rocky hillock just inland from Koggala, soak up the serenity of this wonderful jungly location as monkeys swing overhead and birds twitter loudly in the trees. Moss-encrusted boulders, fern-covered rocks and mature hardwood trees envelope the house and give it a woodland feel. The garden is more than two acres in extent, much of it running wild except for a few dappled pathways. On the lawn at the front of the house a tall jackwood tree is adored by scampering squirrels who provide entertainment as you relax in the comfy chairs on the airy front verandah. To the rear is an inviting turquoise swimming pool built into the rocky hillside and surrounded by tropical vegetation. Antique furniture gives character to the house whilst its design reflects the Dutch in Ceylon; tall arched doorways, pillared columns, wide wraparound verandahs and high ceilings are features throughout. Three bedrooms lead off from a first floor balcony which is enhanced by hidden nooks for curling up with a good book whilst the other two bedrooms are on the ground floor a short walkway away from the pool. There's a large open-plan living and dining area that spills onto the front verandah, whilst a small air conditioned TV room with cushioned seating houses a large wide-screen TV and DVD player. Although the house is completely private on its hilltop, its ambient village setting mean that local sounds drift softly up on the breeze; listen out for the melody of the bread van, for the cries of the fish sellers or of the laughter of children playing nearby. Better still, wander down the driveway to experience it with your eyes as well as your ears, or travel a little further into the busy coastal village of Habaraduwa for a visit to its bustling market (Wednesdays). The property is fully-serviced by a small staff team who clean and tidy. The cook will make breakfast and any other meal on request, although the kitchen is equipped with everything for self-catering and the staff can shop for you if required (provisions on guest account). The property is a couple of kilometres inland from the busy market town of Habaraduwa whose extensive sandy beach extends eastwards towards Koggala. The villa sits at the top of small rise around the base of which is a scattering of village homes. Aged trees and tropical plants characterise the large garden and provide respite for the many birds and wildlife that come to visit. The nearest beach is at Habaraduwa, however for the best swimming and for a wider range of facilities Dalawella and Unawatuna on the main road towards Galle are much better, especially for families with children.
