"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.

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!

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!

"stunning villa in a very relaxing atmosphere"
Staying at Villa Golden was really excellent. We felt very welcome and staff has a great sense of hospitality. In general Sri Lankans are very friendly and very welcoming. I have been to many countries but never found sucj a sincere and warm friendliness.
The villa is very well situated at the seaside with a very calm beach. The beach has mostly fishermen and a few locals. In the garden you can relax on a sunbed or in one of the hammocks, my favourite ;-)
I can also recommend the massage (we had Mylton and Roshan).
Anyway I would defenitely recommend Villa Golden for your stay in Sri Lanka.
Once again a big thumbs up for the staff.

"Our stay in paradise!!!"
We stayed at VillaGolden from november 23rd untill the 8th of december 2013
Villagolden is everything you want from a holiday. Not to worry about anything and just relax yourself. The staff attends to your every need and nothing is impossible. You want take-out, visit someplace, have custom made clothes......the tailor comes at the villa, measures you up and a few days later you look like new!! Massages at the beach, hairdresser who comes to the villa and takes care of your grooming needs,....really everything is possible! I would recommend it to everybody and would surely come again. You walk through the lovely garden and you are straight at the beautifull beach and ocean. The food which is prepared at the villa is excellent, both breakfast and dinner are excuisite. The staff is well trained and the rooms are superb!!
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT

""BEST HOLIDAY EVER""
We've found this amazing property via holidaylettings, booking was easy and the owners answered all our questions, even arranged airport transfer and a massage on arrival.
The Villa is fantastic, it looks even better then the pictures on the website. Great pool; never saw a bigger garden and the beach is just at the end of the garden!
We planned several daytrips which the staff arranged for us. Every day massages, yoga lessons and even pedicure at the villa. We started initial diving lessons as wel. The staff is just GREAT; Pushpa the cook is a treasure, Susantha, the poolboy knows everything in the neighbourhood and Roshan is always smiling and in for a nice chat.
I had the best holiday ever here at Villa Golden and will definitely book again next year, but this time I will be taking the kids, they'll have the time of their life here and the staff is fantastic with little children; Susantha, the poolboy is even a licensed lifeguard!
Counting the days for my next family holiday in Sri Lanka!

"Tropical piece of paradise on the earth !!!!"
We booked this villa trough the internet and the whole process was easy and efficient. , It looked very promising, but arriving there: Our conception of wonderful holiday in the paradise been fullfilled !!!. We are afraid that each next holiday will be worse...
Amazing , empty beach with coconut palms , the swimming pool , the garden - everything was spectacular fantastic and on the end : " the cherry on the cake " - THE STAFF- unique and unrepeatable !
Puschpa - our Queen of Taste . Her dinners were so marvelous ! We'll never forget the chilly prawns , royal sea food dishes , spring rolls- much better than in Vietnam , etc ... .
Susantha and Raschan -always smiling , always friendly , always ready to help . Fantastic !
Without this 3 people Villa Golden would be amazing accomodation but with this staff has become a home in paradise where we would like to spend the rest of our life !
Thank you once again Bart , Puschpa , Susantha and Raschan !!!
