                                                  A really relaxing place to stay

                                                  5 of 5
                                                  The villa was as described, a lovely house, with a garden full of trees and flowering bushes, and the sea swishing on the sand, just outside the garden gate. We were extremely well looked after by the staff, who were very welcoming, cheerful and friendly. At the same time, they were unobtusive, but available and eager to please. The meals, prepared by Sarath and his family, were delicious, with the local fish straight from the sea, a real treat As was our intention, we had a really relaxing time, but there was also plenty to do, be it swimming in the sea or in the pool, going for walks, bird watching or visiting places, such as to Galle or to see the turtles laying their eggs, travelling in Tuk-Tuks or the mini bus. All in all a memorable holiday.

                                                  5 of 5
                                                  We stayed in Kahumba for 2 weeks in January. It was our first visit to Sri Lanka. If you want peace and quiet, wonderful food and beautiful views, look no further, you've found it! Kahumba’s best attribute is it’s position. We could not have wished for a better view, a better beach or a better garden. The climate was perfect, sea breezes keeping the high temperatures pleasant. The house sits in a large garden with access to the Indian Ocean. It is protected by headlands which make it very safe for swimming. It has a minimalist look and a large double bed protected by a mosquito net. As mentioned, it has no air conditioning but overhead fans in every room. We were never uncomfortably hot. There is a housekeeper called Indika who looked after us really well, was a font of knowledge about local sights and customs and a safe pair of hands behind the wheel? of a tuk-tuk! Malkunti cooked for us every night bar one. We were there for two weeks. We ate out once, but felt that Malkunti’s food was so superior that we ate in the villa for the rest of our time there. She prepared different meals every night and we were especially impressed with her vegetable dishes. We should also mention Ruhunu who oversaw the smooth running of everything. All three of them are to be commended. So, in summery, I would say that this was one of our best villa holidays to date. It took a little while to get used to having "staff" but once we got the hang of it we felt relaxed and pampered. There are only two very slight negatives that I feel honour bound to mention. The hideaways are a 3 hour transfer from Colombo, but then anywhere along the Southern coast of Sri Lanka is going to take you 2 to 3 hours. However, there is a sea plane that flies between Colombo and Tangalle, but only once a day. It lands very close to the villas. Also, there are a few stray dogs around, but, again, I think you would find this anywhere in the area unless you stayed in a large hotel. So, in closing, we would unreservedly recommend either of the two villas and the wonderful people who looked after them and us. P.S. We took an Ipod player as we were aware that there is no "entertainment" in the property.
