Old Clove House
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Located on what was formerly a clove plantation, of which only three clove trees survive, Old Clove House has been renovated, restored and modernised, and given a new lease of life as a holiday rental home. Located just minutes from the beaches of Thalpe and Unawatuna, the private leafy compounds of this house is a welcome respite and sanctuary from the beaches and town.
The house consists of three large double bedrooms, all en-suite with hot water rain showers and air-conditioned. The main master suite has a large King size bed, a separate sitting/ lounging area, a large dressing area and a wonderful landscaped area with an open to sky shower. The second bedroom, the pool room, opens directly to the swimming pool, and has a queen bed, a walk-in dressing room and an attached bathroom with open to sky rain shower. The third bedroom, suitable for adults or a group of children, comprises a main bedroom with a queen bed, an attached smaller room with a single bed which could be used by more children or the nanny and has an attached bathroom with open to sky rain shower.
Old Clove House is in a lush, verdant beautifully landscaped garden, and is very peaceful and tranquil, but just minutes from the beaches, making it a great base to explore the beaches of the South of Sri Lanka, and Galle Fort/ town.
Old Clove House is perfect for a large group, be it family or groups of friends.
Staffed by a team of six, comprising the house manager, the cook, the cook's assistant and three houseboys, all your needs will be taken care of. Privacy is ensured by having the staff house and main kitchen out of sight and sound, at the bottom of the garden. Guests will be ensured of total privacy.
For guests who wish to cook their own meals, or to take a lesson in Sri Lankan cuisine from our cook, there is a modern, well equipped kitchen in the main house.
