Description

$45 per night and $15 per person after the first 2 people.

the chalet will be given to one family at a time, so even if you are only 2 people you will have it only to yourself.complete privacy.

This 1 acre hideaway is bounded on two sides by streams.the dry zone scrub that surrounds the house is not landscaped but we do plant native jungle trees that are a haven for birds.

It is called river island because it is very secluded and feels like an island due to the 2 waterways. yet it is in close proximity to the tissamaharama road [also called the colombo galle highway],10 minutes by tuk tuk

The wattle and daube architecture is characteristic of a village house but it is lockable.

The house consists of an open plan sleeping and seating area, 2 modern bathrooms and a large verandah for relaxing by the stream.steps built into the bank takes you down for a quick bath/swim before lunch. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, cooker, pans crockery and cutlery

Crisp white linen sheets and large mosquito nets make up your five mattresses on the sleeping platform. Towels are provided.

You could ask our manager nuwan to go down to the market to buy fresh local produce and cook you up a down south curry and rice for an extra charge. there is a menu in the house. hambantota also has a large supermarket and restaurants.

Basic and beautiful. no a/c and no hot water.

And if you are truly blessed, on a moonlit night you may see an elephant crossing the stream for a wander in your garden.

Location description from owner

Southern Province region

Hambantota District is part of the traditional south known as Ruhuna. In ancient times this region, especially Hambantota and the neighboring areas was the centre of a flourishing civilization. Historical evidence reveals that the region in that era was blessed with fertile fields and a stupendous irrigation network. Hambantota was known by many names 'Mahagama', 'Ruhuna' and 'Dolos dahas rata'.
Hambantota, located in the Deep south, along the eastern coasts of Sri Lanka is renowned as the home to some of the biggest wild-life sanctuaries of the country and boasts to own some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches with the best surf in Sri Lanka. Yala, Bundala, Weerawila and Uda Walawe are among the Wild Life Parks and Bird Reserves that are located in the region. Culture and Heritage is also on the list of attractions, with the Sacred City of Kataragama and Madunagla Hot Water Wells, a short distance away.Located 237 Kms from Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, Hambantota is the ideal get-away to experience nature at its best.

“The place is unique! Beautiful.”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2014

This amazing house is located away from the tourist track in a small cute village but it was very easy to reach there. Being far from the regular tourist hubs, it is very relaxing to just BE there, surrounded by nature. No hassle at all to reach there. It is a totally safe place. The house is located at a small stream and we were able to observe so many birds, monkeys, snakes and monitor lizzards. It is a place for nature lovers. The caretakers took so nicely care of everything. They cooked great meals for us and gave us the utensil needed for doing laundry. Nelun organised a jeep safari in the Yala National Park for us, which was great. We could observe plenty of colourful birds as well as crocodiles, deers, elephants, monkeys, snakes and many more wild animals. Nelun was not only there for us while staying at her place, but she helped us druing our tour too. We highly recommend to stay at this peaceful place and to relax in this place's energy and atmosphere and to enjoy the hospitality of the caretakers.

Owner's reply: you were such good guests. thank you for a lovely review
