Good sized Double room within listed property 'Hempel House'. En-suite bathroom and AC equipped. Sleeps 2.
Please read listing carefully.

A lovely courtyard house in Galle in Sri Lanka with a swimming pool. Close to Galle Fort and Unawatuna. Tropical, green and lovely.

Delightful example of a period house from the colonial era. It is set around a courtyard featuring a pond with tropical fish, turtles and sweet scented frangipani tree at its center. It has been tastefully restored by the Hempel Family who have been living there for the last 10 years. It is just 10 mins from Galle Fort and fifteen minutes from Unawatuna and the beaches of Thalpe.

The house is surrounded by a lush tropical garden which is a bird watchers paradise. There are mongoose and monitor lizards with squirrels and monkeys darting amongst the trees.
Whether having a lazy breakfast of Nalani’s delicious egg hoppers, or a long lunch of Sri Lankan curry, sambals and chutneys, (all from local produce or catch of the day) this is a place to relax and unwind. The open dining room faces onto the jungle, where women collecting firewood and buffalo stroll past. The house with its internal courtyard and pond is designed along the lines of a Buddhist mandala.

Guests can swim in our 50 ft swimming pool or at Thalpe beach just fifteen minutes away. If you are feeling more active the shops, restaurants and hotels of UNESCO world heritage protected Galle Fort are just ten minutes away while the surf beaches are within 20 to 30 minutes.

At sunset, stroll through village streets and past corner shop vendors. Light an oil lamp at the local Buddhist temple, view a private show of Kandyian dances performing the devil dance under the stars, or just listen to the night sounds of the crickets, watching the fireflies with a glass of chilled wine in hand.

At the end of a long day, curl up in one of the antique four poster beds knowing the house is secure under the watchful eye of Saman the Night Watchman, 3 dogs (one is great dane) and Minky the cat.

•Two living rooms.
•Outside/inside dining area.

This is a fantastic place to stay. The host Eduard and Emma were so helpful and would go above and beyond to help you with everything that we needed for our trip. The incredibly knowledgeable which was really helpful for our 3 week stay in Sri Lanka. The place was beautiful and very well hidden. The staff were lovely and the home cooked meals were the best that we've had so far in Sri Lanka. Highly recommended!

Its a really pretty and interesting place to stay. Interesting because you get an experience of living in an old home with modern day conveniences like AC etc.. Public transportation located quite close. Great meals, truly home cooked and served in a nice rustic environment

It's a very quiet,cozy countryside villa with correct description with a 150 years of history. Nice room with good facilities Although it is outside of Galle Fort , it is easy access without any difficulties by tutu or public bus. You can see monkeys play on top of coconut trees every morning. Three dogs and one cat are so mild,adorable and sticky. villa owner Edward,Manager Emma, maid, gardener and watchman all helps a lot and nice talk with them. Nalani cook very yummy food. I hate to go out (URL HIDDEN) is a wise choice to stay such small paradise for holidays . Recommendation is a must.

Our stay at Eduard's home started a few minutes before, when Emma picked up us at the bus station. Avoiding another struggle with a tuk tuk driver was a beautiful way to start our journey there. The house is just as described or may be more : the pictures and the description are not enough to describe all the atmosphere there. Our room was incredible as the rest of the house. The garden, the living rooms, the pool, everything was more than amazing. More than the place, the people (and animals) we met there contributed to our pleasure. Eduard and Emma are really nice and helpful. They will try to help you in the best way they can. Nalini and the gardians were very nice too. The food was incredible too. Our stay was so nice that we decided to stay two more nights. Living 4 day in this house was the best way to end our journey in Sri Lanka
