Description from owner

The Moonwater 54 house is located on 45 perches of beautiful, tranquil landscaped tropical gardens in the southern part of Sri Lanka close to the World Heritage site of Galle. A quiet, secluded bolthole away from the stresses and strains of our modern day lives and located less than 7 minutes from beautiful Unawatuna and Jungle beaches, Moonwater is the perfect retreat for families and couples. In fact, we’d like you to think of it as your tropical home from home.

There is a large swimming pool as well as fantastic outside dining and entertaining areas that comfortably seat 12. Recently, we have introduced a fantastic yoga/meditation pavilion in the garden next to a stunning water feature and are happy to accommodate both private and group yoga/meditation sessions.

This unique house was an original Sri Lankan plantation managers home that has now been renovated true to local design and architecture. Our fully air conditioned bedrooms spill out onto private courtyards with the gardens

This unique house was an original Sri Lankan plantation managers home that has now been renovated true to local design and architecture. Our fully air conditioned bedrooms spill out onto private courtyards with the gardens and swimming pool beyond. The open plan living areas welcome and invite companionship, conversation and laughter. It is a solid beach house that naturally flows from one living space to the other and has that unique style of combining both privacy and inviting open spaces for all round entertainment.

The bedrooms are all fully air-conditioned as is the TV/Games room which are well stocked with a variety of video's plus there is WIFI connectivity throughout.

At the World Heritage site of Galle, an entire morning can be spent exploring the maze of narrow streets that are lined with Dutch and British Colonial era buildings that are still in use. Sturdy ramparts overloo Galle's international cricket stadium and a scattering of shops , art galleries, museums, boutique hotels and cafes are in abundance. Galle is a veritable Aladdin's treasure trove of gemstone shops, arty shops, cafe's and collectables and a visit not to be missed.

If shopping isn't your thing, why not take a boat ride on Koggala lake where rural life unfolds and along the way visit a village temple or cinnamon estate. Whale watching, Elephant orphanages, moonstone mine exploration or a Sri Lankan safari are all on offer and we can help to arrange for your convenience. Snorkeling and Scuba diving is possible in Unawatuna Bay and there are also several surf points nearby.

If you don't wish to venture far, you can spend your time locally in the magical and vibrant beachside village of Unawatuna sampling the cafes, restaurants and local craft and souvenir shops. You can sit at tables as the water laps at your feet or lie for hours on the sun lounges under the tropical sun.

Our property is fully staffed with an on-site full time housekeeper, groundsman, 24 hour security and a full time Chef. We are more than happy to consider any special requests to make your stay at Moonwater very special.

If your'e travelling with a small child, the house is equipped with a cot, highchair, sand toys and childrens indoor toys. There are also car seats available for transfers to and from the airport which we are happy to organise.

We are sure you will enjoy your stay at Moonwater and look forward to hearing from you.

“Incredible home, within close striking distance of divine beaches.”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2013

The first thing that struck us, was the warmth of the house help. Nothing was a problem. The home has a practical layout and exquisite design details. Think: colonial type building with high ceilings, bespoke kitchen, chill out areas, and bedrooms that ooze charm. You will be blown away with the cuisine. Sri-Lankan food in my humble opinion is a step up from their closer neighbor India. Succulent grilled seafood, mouth watering mild curries and delectable tropical fruits.
