What a nice experience !!!
Beautiful house, superbe swimmingpool ( the cleanest ever seen) , nice garden that gives straight access to the beach.
Friendly Staf always ready to help ; Pushpa the housecook makes delicious local meals! Susantha drives you anywhere you want and Suranga is there to guard the house when you are asleep! The staff is always present ; you nearly notice them but they are there when you need them!

"Paradise does exist!!"

If i have to discribe my stay in villa golden in one word i would say "heaven". The premises are excellent, charming villa and superb gardens. Very nice pool and with a garden that gives into the sea it is just wonderfull. Very friendly and helpfull staff. The cooking lady makes the most delicious food. We just had the most wonderfull time during our stay!

"Amazing place - paradise on the beach!"

We (two adults, two children of 10 and 12) had the most amazing 7 days at Villa Golden. We arrived there after a 2 week tour around the island (also visiting family) and immediately felt relaxed and a… More

"Beautiful villa, people and setting"

I have just stayed here with my family and its been amazing. Its a beautiful villa, very tastefully done with lots of space and different seating areas so it feels so relaxing. The setting is gorgeous. Big garden with giant palm trees, hammocks, a lovely pool with loungers and the end of your garden leads directly to the beach (in 6 days we haven't seen another person on it)! So you have your own private Sri Lankan sunset. The staff here are so kind, warm and helpful and make the stay really special, they are lovely people and that really comes across as soon as you arrive. Our kids fell in love with them. I don't know where to start with the food, it's unbelievable. I wish I could get curries like this in England!!
It literally is paradise. I need to go back!

"Well beyond expectations ......."

Firstly let's start with the villa.... Absolutley lovely place. Very stylish in a understated way. A lot of thought has gone into the easy casual style. If you are looking for polished chrome and lots of glass then look away. Locally sourced firniture, polished floors and cool prints on the walls. Ceiling fans everywhere (you'll need those). The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom has high ceilings and a very cool walk in shower. The four poster bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever found at a hoiday rental. All the beds have Mosquito nets for the paranoid but we saw two mozzies during our stay. Every evening the rooms are sprayed 30 mins before you retire. Bug fanatics relax, we saw only one and it was very friendly. All the bedroom have powerful air con.

Outside is a huge garden that rolls down to the beach. Palm trees, well tended lawns and beautiful tropical plants everywhere. Near the house is a large covered patio area (more ceiling fans). Large blinds can be rolled down to protect you from the occassional tropical rain shower. It is a lovely place to enjoy the sound of the waves whilst enjoying a glass of wine. At the other end of the garden is a covered patio for dining. We enjoyed our breakfast there every morning, with the waves of the Indian Ocean crashing in the background.

The pool is excellent and one of the largest we have ever found at a vacation rental. The temperature was perfect and it is a lovely place to cool off in the afternoon heat. It was also the cleanest ...... we never saw a single thing in the crystal clear waters . It is long enough for you to take your daily 100 length exercise but shallow enough for children to splash about.

The house sits on a beautiful sandy beach. It's lovely. We saw only a handful of people all week.

Galle Forte is just a short tuk-tuk ride away. 15 mins away are the attractions of Hikaduwa and the beautiful beaches, bars and restaurants of Unawatuna are 20 mins away. The house comes with a Tuk-tuk and driver, all part of the deal.

2 minutes away is the Jetwing Lighthouse hotel. the views out over the ocean are stunning and it is a lovely place to enjoy a drink or a meal. In Galle Forte there are restaurants and bars to suit all budgets from cheap but excellent to the stylish. We highly recommend the Deco44 Hotel on lighthouse street.

Just the house alone would make your vacation amazing, however what makes your stay really really special are the staff. Pushpa, Susantha and Suranga are three of the loveliest, most helpful and welcoming people we have ever met. It was a delight to meet them all. There is nothing that is too much trouble. Do these lovely people ever stop smiling?

Susantha the house manager will do anything for you. He is your concierge, driver and all round good guy. He is just a great guy. Nothing is too much trouble, just ask.

Pushpa is a lovely lady who is always smiling and laughing. Her cooking is amazing. Ask for the Prawn curry. Breakfast everyday was simply superb. We ate out a few evenings but the best meals we had were at the villa. if we had a big enough suitcase we would have taken Pushpa home with us. What a lovely lady.

Suranga is a very pleasant young man who looks after you from 6pm to 8am every night. Always smiling and ever helpful. I tried several times to return a cup or a glass to the kitchen and never made it before Suranga would sprint across the lawn to intercept me.

This is a lovely place to stay but it's the staff that make it truly magical. If you are lucky enough to stay here please remember that these amazing hard working lovely people are there to provide a service, they are NOT servants so treat them with the respect and kindness they deserve and You will be richly rewarded. Please and thank you are free. If not I will find you!

In summary..... we have travelled all over the world and stayed in many many vacation rentals and hotels. Villa Golden is just one of the best places we have ever stayed.

We'll be back .... again and again.

"Golden, indeed!"

Totally relaxed after our stay at beautiful Villa Golden. I was there with my wife and we both had the best time of our lives! A big thanks to the staff: Pushpa and Sosante. You are the best! I will s… More

"Nice location and very good service"

The location is very nice - right on the beach. Only the road on the back side makes it a bit noisy sometimes - however it is not a big issue.Master bedroom is very large with own toilet and shower, … More

The golden and tranquil beach is cleaned now every day, early in the morning, by our friendly and very motivated nightguard (who has the nicest smile you can imagine, by the way!)

"A Massive Disappointment"

We are a family of four with children aged 3 and 5. We have been to Sri Lanka several times and were very excited about our trip over Easter, especially as the villa looked fantastic and the other re… More

Dear all, this 'easy going family' left our really very helpful and kind staff in tears from the first day on. Their friends, who stayed at the villa the next week, were very satisfied and happy about their stay.
About the allegations: these guests KNEW about the new transport rate in advance, our driver was caught up in a traffic jam (it was peak hour in Colombo, hence the longer duration to get to the villa), there WAS water available in the fridge on their arrival, the lizzard (gekko) wouldn't have been there if the guests hadn't removed the protective part of the kettle. Our staff is ALWAYS helpful and will do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible (even if they are insulted and shouted at all the time as it was the case with these guests) The pool: EVERY OTHER GUEST is enthusiastic about the condition of the water. And so on.
In short: we have never ever had these kind of remarks before, as we do everything we possibly can - with the help of our excellent staff - to make sure our guests have a wonderful stay!

"Just perfect!"

Villa Golden is a little paradise : very comfortable accomodation in a beautiful garden in front of the ocean with a nice pool and the best staff in the world! Although I travel a lot I never met more friendly people than in Sri Lanka. Susantha, the manager takes care of all your trips and everything you want to do around ( a ride in the toek toek with him is a must! ), Susantha is preparing the best local food or whatever you want her to cook , a nightwake is watching over you ( although it is a very safe place ), the tailorman is coming to the house and makes your dresses just the way you want them.....all these people are just there and give the best of service to make your stay a pleasant one. Not to forget the healthy breakfast! Plenty of things to visit in the neighbourhood, good restaurants....In short, a holiday never to forget!
