As its name suggests, this secluded property sits within a whisper of the ocean; just footsteps away from the warm turquoise sea. From the tranquillity of the front verandah you can watch the waves crashing therapeutically onto a golden beach often visited by marine turtles whilst coconut palms in the extensive garden sway softly overhead, their leaves rustling in the gentle breeze. Bright green parrots noisily dance between the trees, butterflies provide flashes of colour and the crescendo of chirruping crickets reaches its peak come nightfall. For nature lovers and outdoorsy types, this four-bedroom property is perfect. Twenty three acres of land offer much opportunity for exploration, whilst the sandy beach is a delight for walkers as it extends for miles to the east and west. The villa itself is light, airy and very generously proportioned. Multiple sets of tall arched doors open onto balconies with panoramic views of the garden and sea. Cool polished floors, high ceilings and pillared verandahs are reminiscent of the colonial era, even though interiors are a blend of antique and contemporary furnishings and the property was only built in 2004. Cushioned seating and dining tables in and around the villa make relaxing a treat and dining a pleasure as there is always something to watch – from birds in the trees to ships bobbing atop the deep blue sea. After only a few hours in this secluded, tranquil environment, time vanishes without import and stresses and strains simply melt away. The property is a place where friendships and family bonds can truly be renewed. For its space, room configuration and extensive gardens this villa is a great choice for families. A large T-shaped swimming pool, surrounded by a wide deck scattered with sun loungers, lies to the back of the house whilst indoor entertainment is provided in the TV room. A small staff team are on hand to cook and clean for you (provisions at cost), although the large well-equipped kitchen is freely available for guests' use too. There are no restaurants or shops within walking distance; you need to head into Tangalle (16km) for such diversions. Otherwise, you can just enjoy the seclusion of this rural location or embark upon exciting half-day trips to wildlife-filled national parks such as Yala, Uda Walawe and Bundala. The property is located in the tiny rural village of Thillawatawana, a short distance from Kahandamodera, where most of the local population make their living from fishing and farming. There is very little surrounding the property's extensive grounds except a few houses enveloped by pretty, colourful gardens that you will see as you make your way to the villa. The location is very rural with paddy fields and small lotus-strewn lakes surrounded by scrubland visited by many birds. The beach to the front of The property (often visited by marine turtles) extends east across some boulders towards Kalametiya wetlands and the red barren earth of Ussangoda, whilst to the west it reaches back to Tangalle via Rekawa, home to the island's only protected turtle sanctuary. Banks with ATMs and money changing facilities as well as basic pharmacies and supermarkets can be found in Tangalle.
