NEW ON THE MARKET - YOUR DREAM HOME - MIRISSA
This luxurious home boasts a beautiful large tranquil tropical garden enjoying country & sunrise views. The designer finished property boasts 3 x double bedrooms, a modern kitchen and bathroom, plus a sitting & living room area. Dine 'al fresco' on the large terrace to the exotic sounds of nature. A short 5 minute shaded walk by a beautiful mangrove will lead you to the stunning Mirissa Beach.
Crack open a coconut (a beer or a pina colada) & lay back in a hammock & experience yet another beautiful sunrise or the 'full moon' rising over the paddy & cinnamon fields whilst listening to the exotic ambience oozing from the jungle.
The garden is a paradise for watching wildlife. I've seen a huge variety of exotic animals & birds by just sitting on my terrace, such as finches, kingfishers, parrots, humming birds, woodpeckers, peacocks, black & brown monkeys, mongooses, porcupines and regal monitor lizards walking across the lawn. At night time the jungle sounds & ambience changes...the fruit bats fly silently above whilst the tall mango tree in our garden is visited by hundreds of fireflies.. a truly magical experience!
So we ask you why rent just a room when you can enjoy a luxury home & garden for a similar price! 'Your dream home' combines the comfort of an exceptional villa with all the modern comforts of five star hotels. Why compromise when you can reside in the perfect blend of privacy, space and cleanliness.

The Sri Lanka Southern Coast region
BLUE WHALE WATCHING... Mirissa is perfectly placed for whale-watching expeditions, thanks to it's proximity to the world's great cetacean migratory routes. With sightings of these majestic creatures almost guaranteed for large parts of the year, there's a high possibility of seeing Bryde's whales, Killer whales, Sperm whales and Blue whales (as well as spinner dolphins) on a single trip. December to April being the best months.
MIRISSA BEACH ...Crack open a coconut, slip into a hammock and rock gently in the breeze, allowing the hours, days and even weeks to slip calmly by. Welcome to sleepy Mirissa, a place so idyllic that only a fool would ever want to leave. This sandy tropical beach boasts some of Sri Lanka's best and most stunning sunsets and sunrises.
TURTLES ON MIRISSA BEACH ... Sri Lanka is home to five kinds of turtle's species including Green turtles, Leatherbacks, Olive Ridleys, Hawksbills and Loggerheads all of who regularly visit Mirissa Beach to lay their eggs and build their nests. Situated on the beach you'll find The Coast Guard Turtle Conservation Project with the purpose of preserving and raising the awareness of sea turtle conservation.The coast guards move the eggs to safer areas and once they hatch visitors are invited to release the baby turtles back into the sea at sunset time .
LAKE GARADUWA & NILWALA RIVER ...Mirissa is not all about the beach, there is so much more to explore. If you're a wildlife lover take a trip on Lake Garaduwa or the Nilwala River. Sri Lanka is a birds paradise with more than 420 resident species and it seems that many of them like to visit the lush lake & surrounding mangroves. Photography lovers will enjoy snapping away at exotic birds such as Red-faced Malkoha & Green billed Coucal peacocks, Woodpeckers & electric blue Kingfishers to name a few.
WILDLIFE IN MIRISSA... the area is rich with wild life. You'll see chipmunks, monkeys swinging on trees, mongooses, porcupines,iguanas and a variety of land and water monitor lizards.
MIRISSA IS A GREAT AREA TO BASE YOURSELF FOR EXPLORING THE SURROUNDING ARAES.
It's unlikely that you will get bored in MIRISSA but if you suddenly get that urge to venture further and explore it's actually an excellent location to be based in !
WELIGAMA...only 10 mins by bus
Heading back in the direction of Colombo you will find the small fishing town and railway hub of Welligama . It's a 10 minutes bus ride ( 4 KM ) and getting lost in the back streets of this small market town can be fun . Take a stroll along the sea front and watch the fishermen dragging their boats up on shore or selling their fish in their small shops. The is a bank here, some small internet shops and lots of places to buy small local items ideal for gifts. Whilst the beach is not as nice as Mirissa's it's a popular beach to learn to surf.
GALLE...only 45 mins by bus
The Port of Galle ( Galla ) is about another 30 minutes further on towards Colombo .
Galle has one of the most beautiful old Dutch / Portugese forts in all of South East Asia. It is a port town and there is a thriving neighbourhood with the fort walls . Once inside you can walk around the old fort and get lost amongst all the small streets. Grab something to eat or quench your thirst with a orange coloured King Coconut and sit on the old walls and look out over the ocean.
Galle is famous for its lace and you will not get more than 100 M before some old lady tries to sell you some. Spend an hour or so wandering around the old Dutch Church in the heat of the day and read some of the old tombstones from 200 year ago.
MATARA ... only 20 mins by bus
Heading in the direction away from Colombo and about 12 KM down the road from Mirissa is the bustling town of Matara. This is the final stop on the Train from Colombo and a major bus destination hub for the whole of the Southern Provence . It is from here that you can get back to Colombo or take a bus up to Ella and the Hill Country.
