About Sonali

The owners live in Colombo. They own two beach villas and wanted to built a holiday home away from the beach. They loved the location and built the cottage around 2006 so that their two sons can go boating, use the paddle boats and fish from the pier.

Why Sonali chose Kathaluwa

The spectacular view of the Koggala lake and for the tranquility of the location.

What makes this cottage unique

For being cut off and away from the hassle and busy life of the city.

To be among nature, to enjoy the quietness and peaceful surrounding. To be able to meditate enjoying the stillness and watch the shooting stars. To watch the birds fly and fish leaping out when being chased by bigger fish. To appreciate nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So many elements that combined to make this the perfect holiday. Cottage location is simply breathtaking....down a narrow shaded path to a stunning hide away, the garden with its wildlife.....monkeys, squirrels, parrots, lizzards and the 5ft long Iguana! The accommodation - comfortable, simple and stylish. The slow walks through the neighbouring lanes with tiny little back room shops. Boat trips on the lake, nearby beaches, stroles around old Galle, 3 young children loving every minute ....and with TV off!! Wonderfull Sri Lankan curries every evening. The best part was, however, the staff. Lallith, Sanka, Deapalla, Roshan, Gamani and Bupali were outstanding. Friendly, always helpful, caring and patient with the children. Saying goodbye was very sad but we will be back!!



Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.



Best wishes

Tranquil perfection

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fantastic fortnight at South Point Cottage. The cottage is on Koggala Lake. It is a 3 bedroom property (2 with fans, one with a/c). We travelled as a couple, so only used one room. We were met at our taxi, as you cannot drive up to cottage; it is a short walk- 2 mins max. Then you descend into paradise. The cottage is set in its own grounds, with a swimming pool, and a jetty.Loads of natural wood has been used throughout the cottage and terrace, it gives a lovely feel to the place. The bathroom is huge and has a rainfall shower, bliss.
The garden is well tended but natural which means lots of interesting wildlife paying a visit.
The biggest asset this place has is the staff. They make you feel so special. We had some fantastic conversations even with the language differences; we even had pictures of all the wildlife drawn for us! They made our last night so good with a guitarist playing and singing western and Sri Lankan songs.
Some of the highlights included:
Fishing from the jetty at dusk. Memorable.
Boat trip round the lake including Bat Island and a visit to a cinnamon stick maker.
Discovering all the wildlife.
The sleep. I have never slept so well, or so deeply.
Eating fresh coconuts, watching a man climb the incredibly tall trees with just a tiny rope for assistance.
The food, the chef is brilliant. Use the suggested menu as a guide, and leave it to him, we did not have any food that was less than great. Deep fried ice cream is a revelation!
Having a lovely safe driver, makes a real difference in SL.
Watching the local fishermen in their canoes, and buying a crab from one, and having it cooked for us.
Watching the seaplane take off every day. We used this to fly back to CMB as we could not face the long drive back pre long haul flight. It is around £40 per person, would recommend.
The cottage is in a small village, next to a Buddhist temple, with a small school. You really are off the beaten track; however you are well placed for exploring Galle Matara, Mirissa, tea plantation etc.
We spent so many happy days at this cottage, some days not leaving the grounds, it is so tranquil.
The South Point People also run an education building in the village, we had some lovely outfits made by the ladies there, very reasonable prices – (tip-take an item of clothing as a pattern).
Ayurvedic massages at the cottage, they were so relaxing.
I recommend this place to get away from it all, hope to return soon.

Wonderful -- we can't say enough about this gem.

Wonderful -- we can't say enough about this gem.
  • 5 out of 5
Our famliy of four (two young children) stayed at South Point Cottage in March 2011. From our first point of contact via email and telephone, the owner and staff of this rental were attentive and provided first class service. The cottage itself is beautiful, set right on the lake with a nice pool just off the veranda, surrounded by trees and animals and blooming flowers. It's just breath-taking -- but the true treat is the warm staff and spirit of hospitality. From the driver to the houseboys to the groundskeeper to the chef, we experienced nothing but excellent and discreet care. Our children were in heaven with all the attention and cried when they had to leave our new friends at the end of the week! Using the facilities at the seaside properties, a short walk away, was a nice touch as well. Our driver delivered us safely to our tours of the turtle hatchery, tea estate, spice garden, batik shop, blow hole, and Yala National Park. We were so well-taken care of, and the food was out of this world too! If you want a personal touch in an amazing setting full of lovely people for a VERY reasonable cost, rent South Point! We will be back . . .

Quiet and peaceful atmosphere

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in South Point Cottage from 09th to 17th March 2011. This nice Cottage has a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere and is located at the Koggala Lake, 5 min drive to the sea.
Even if the lake is not good for swimming, you have a pool to refresh yourself.
However, we got the possibility to use the facilities (beach, terrace, pool…) of the nearby South Point Villa. Also at this villa we got a very warm welcome every time we were there, for instance delicious fresh made fruit juice.
To take full advantage of a relaxing stay in South Point Cottage you should book a chef. In this case you are able to have a great experience of fresh and home made delicious Sri Lankan meals and of a great hospitality. Try the Sri Lankan curry! This will lead to a table full with a lot of different and very tasteful dishes.
Everybody – owners, manager, chef and other staff – was doing the very best to make our stay as nice as any possible.
So we want to say: Thank you very much!
