We rented Moonwater for our two children, their spouses and our four granddaughters, aged 5 to 10. The ten of us had a most enjoyable Christmas there. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the house had all the facilities we wanted. The staff were most welcoming and we were made to feel at home straight away. They provided an excellent introduction to Sri Lankan cuisine, with a wide variety of dishes and were very willing to adapt dishes to suit younger palates. The pool was well used, as was the outside dining table, and tuk-tuks summoned readily when ever we wanted to go to near-by beaches or into Galle. When it rained we were provided with towels to dry off and ate comfortably inside. Even a Christmas tree was put up for us.
A big 'thank you' from two very contented grandparents!
We had a wonderful week at Peacock Point. The villa sits in a small estate comprising tea, cinnamon and other crops; you will eat some of this produce during the stay. The room was clean and air conditioning and internet worked well. The staff were excellent and cooked us some fantastic curries in the evening - quite the best we had while staying in Sri Lanka. If you enjoy peace and tranquility (not always easy to find in Sri Lanka) then this is an excellent place. It is to be noted that its location is a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride from restaurants and the beach highway - tuk-tuk costs about £1.50 to the beach; there are some good places to eat about 10 minutes away by tuk-tuk - we enjoyed Ceylon Cafe. If you don't go out, the chef will leave you food so you can dine in. The owners were very helpful in this respect as they gave us a local mobile phone and the useful numbers that we needed - very thoughtful so we could call up a tuk-tuk when needed. We spent time cycling and at the beach but always enjoyed coming back to Peacock Point in the evenings - it felt very restful.
We also really liked here was the guided tour of the estate by Malika; the peace and quiet; the huge bed; the staff. Recommended.
