Alfies is a beautiful, newly renovated beach house with spacious rooms, in a gorgeous garden setting with safe swimming for little ones at your front door.

The house is perfect for families or friends looking for a relaxing beach holiday, but within easy reach of Galle and all it has to offer by way of eating out, shopping and spas.

Sri Lanka offers a great deal of diversity for holiday makers, from quiet relaxation and culinary exploration to shopping, sightseeing, water sports and cultural immersion. Alfies is conveniently located to take advantage of the best that the area offers with diving, whale & dolphin watching, beautiful old temples and the historic city of Galle nearby.

The rental includes a complimentary breakfast of tropical fruits, toast, jam, eggs, tea & coffee, or for the more adventurous, delicious sri lankan curries.

Further details indoors

The house has three bedrooms, two with King sized four poster beds, with the third having two single beds. Each room has an ensuite bathroom with one room boasting a beautiful outdoor bathroom with polished concrete. The 2 single beds can be joined to produce a third 'double' room, and lounge room couches can be utilised for extra children.

All bedrooms have ceiling fans and mosquito nets above the beds.

All fittings are brand new with beautiful tapware and soaps. The kitchen has a gas cooker, microwave and upright fridge, with guests rarely taking advantage of the cooking appliances given the delicious local seafood and curries on offer.

The dining/kitchen room opens out via lovely timber bifold doors onto a wide covered verandah where guests can relax on banana lounges or choose to eat all meals. A ambaloda sits at the front of the property at the water's edge giving guests an opportunity to watch the sunset and enjoy a cool drink away from the house.

Further details outdoors

The garden attracts a number of birds and occasionally monkeys and is very private. Guests literally live on the deck and in the garden with hammocks assisting in the relaxation process!

Further details

Pretty crystal clear rock pools in front of the house make swimming for little one's safe and lots of fun.

The Sri Lanka Southern Coast region

Sri Lanka was historically referred to as the Island of Serendip giving us the word serendipity. It sums up the beautiful nature of the Sri Lanka people and the true paradise that they live in. The coastline in the south is incredibly beautiful with white sandy beaches, clean water and an abundance of sealife. Turtles are always close, and fishing very popular. Stick fisherman can be seen dotted along the coast as the area relies on its sealife for the fabulous seafood it is famous for.


Thalpe has become known as the golden mile, with fabulous villas either built or renovated along the stretch. Alfies Beach house is a smaller version of some of these big houses, and perfect for a family or small group of friends.

Bike riding, fishing, diving and cultural pursuits are all withing easy reach, as is the city of Galle and the Fort with shopping, restuarants and spas.

Dear BeachsideMama,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Alfie's Beach House, and apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I was quite concerned to read of your experiences, as the majority of problems could have been rectified straight away, had I been aware there was an issue. In saying that, things should have been as near to perfect as possible in the first instance.

I have recently spent time in the house and with my staff, who are, I feel a lot more understanding and proactive in their approach, and I am sure you would have a very different experience if you returned. If this is ever the case, I would like to offer a complimentary night by way of apology and hope that beyond the things you mentioned, you did enjoy your trip to Sri Lanka. I would add, that I also spoke with the local turtle sanctuary to ask their advice on how to approach this issue, and the staff and I will be a great deal more diligent in communicating a more conservatory approach to the local communities.

Kind regards,

"Great spot for relaxing!"

Piers and his staff were friendly and helpfull. If you like a beautiful, well furnished and designed luxurious villa this is the right place for visits to Galle and a couple of days on the nice beaches. It isn't cheap but for a couple of days it's a great place to stay.

"Perfect house for a getaway - alone - with children or honeymoon"

Alfies Beach House was the super vacation house for all in our family. Everything worked very well and the house was so easy to live in. The beach is just in front of the house only parted by a nice beautiful tropical garden. There is a super nice loungebed in front of the beach where peace is at its best. We fell really welcome when arriving with the super nice helpful staff. Would love to come back and enjoy Alfies Beach House once more.
