Location description from owner

Southern Province region

Handugoda House is at the head of the heenitagalla valley ,which is a farming valley growing rice an tea mainly, in fact the house is built in the middle of a tea plantation and every couple of days the tea picking ladies will go through the tea plants to the side of the property quietly picking the tea . The valley is teaming with wildlife especially birds ,from Peacocks to brightly coloured Kingfishers.Water buffalo from which they make Motzarella and fantastic curd , similar to plain yoghurt . I have it every morning with fruit and Kittul syrup.
The houses position gives it unrivalled views of a truly amazing landscape and is mostly incredibly quiet and peaceful .Except on public holidays when music can be heard drifting up the valley.Rarely can you hear the sound of a vehicle ,quite unlike staying in a beachfront villa where you will be woken at 4.30 am by the busses hurtling down the coast road with their horns blaring constantly.

The house was completed in jan 2014 using antique doors windows and columns to hold up the generous Verandah ,part of which has been fenced in so that those with small children can keep them corralled and away from the pool area .
There is a 12x4 m infinity pool ,it is all one depth 1.6m , so diving is not allowed . you will be covered by your own travel insurance unless anything should happen because of the house.
On arrival at the house you will be greeted by our neighbour Sue who will introduce you tour staff who will be looking after you. Suresh who is the houseboy and makes the beds and cleans etc and your chef who will cook pretty much anything that you fancy.

I give Suresh aprox 50,000rupies £250 for 10days food ,he will sign for it and keep all the receipts and at the end of your stay you can reconcile them both together , this has been within a couple of pounds at most every time that I visit, it also means that they get Sri Lankan rates for the price of prawns etc rather than a tourist rate.

The water for washing and filling the pool comes from a well in the garden hot water is solar heated but takes a little time for it to arrive at the master bedroom shower.Drinking water on the other hand comes from an American water cooler which is allways available in the kitchen.

The staff have their own area at the back of the house so will not be obtrusive unless you need something.They will do all the laundry incuding your clothes if required.
