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 King 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 a group of friends.

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.
