We arrived in Sri Lanka to find this gem of a property. A beautiful villa, tastefully restored and decorated. We were three families (five adults and five children 7-14) and we really enjoyed our time at villa golden. Pushpa’s cooking was so great, we didn’t want to eat out and the garden / pool were plenty to keep the kids entertained.
The villa itself was clean and tidy with a spacious garden and nearby beach bar. The villa backs straight onto the beach at Pitiwella Boossa - it was lovely, but gets very polluted when there is heavy rain (we had one night of rain during our stay but due to the currents, the sea water was not great for about a week). Close to Galle (about 15 mins) and about half an hour to Narigama / Hikkaduwa. There was always a member of staff available to help us plan a trip or provide advice.
We hope to visit villa golden again in the future!
We all loved everything about our stay in your beautiful Villa Margarita
Pushpa looked after our every need and cooked the most delicious meals that everyone including my 2 teenage children loved!
The house & it’s stylish decor were spotless and downstairs floors kept clean throughout our stay.
There were comfy sofas up and downstairs & the beds were the best I’ve ever slept on, all with mosquito nets. The bathrooms were spotless & had very good showers.
In the early morning from our balcony, my husband and I loved to observe & listen to the stunning birds amongst the palms and beautiful foliage in the garden surrounding the villa.
Another gem we witnessed was the local fishermen pulling in their catch a few hundred yards along the beach, early one morning.
We enjoyed playing tennis on the excellent court and swam in the large pool several times a day.
My only regret was that we didn’t stay longer at your property, as being an artist I would love to have had time to to paint the fishermen sea & gardens.
Our first couple of days were a bit grey so the light hadn’t been conducive to painting. The day we left the sky was blue & the light was perfect for painting!
I took plenty of photographs so have material for working from but it is not the same as painting on location. If you would like to see any of the photos I took just let me know & I’d be happy to share them with you.
On our last afternoon Monica the elephant paid us a visit while we were in the sea. The children were thrilled and both rode on her back while she walked along the beach.
Thank you so much for letting out your beautiful home
We hope to be back again one day.
With warmest wishes
