Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Matara - The Reef House

3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, sleeps

The house is a traditional looking Singalese house. It is quite compact with great views. The ground floor consists of a dining area and living room where the television is. Also the third bedroom is on this floor which has a bathroom attached to it. The front of the house opens up during the day on to the garden with a covered eating area at the end, just before the gate that leads out onto the beach. The first floor is accessed by way of an internal spiral staircase . Here is a lovely big balcony over looking the garden and looking out to sea. Here one can have breakfast or sunbath in private. The two other bedrooms are on this floor each with their own private bathroom. They each have air-conditioning. There is another small staircase leading to the roof where one can sit having cocktails watching the sun go down over the ocean.

The Reef House is incredibly relaxing. We have two resident dogs Beastie and Beauty who are local rescue dogs. They are cared for by our Houseboy Chatarunga and our maid Auntie. Both Chatarunga and Auntie will be at the house to cook breakfast and a simple supper. (Sundays is the only day you have to fend for your own dinner ) They also take care of the cleaning and the care of the garden. We supply all linens including the beach towels. If you decided just to use a car or van to take you down to the area we have a local three-wheeler driver to take you around the immediate area (I use him all the time I am there and he speaks quite good english). And also we have numbers for local van drivers.

Of course the beach here is perfect for surfing and the locals snorkel and catch local fish. There is also traditional fishing along the beach (they do this from poles) and a couple of rock pools to swim in.

We are about 35-40 minutes to Galle which you can either get a van to go to or else take one of the various local buses,an experience I can assure you! and very cheap if I take the express from Matara bus station it is 70 Uk pence or less than 1 US Dollar.

Location

Car: recommended

The property is just on the beach in this small village. One can go surfing from here generally during the season (Oct-April) Literally you just go out the garden gate and you are on the beach and the surfing is in front of you. There is one small beach restaurant nearby. The house is about 3 -4 kilometers from Matara where there are various markets, bakeries and grocery stores. There are number places to explore in Matara the old fort area and tower being two. It is also a good jumping off point to the east coast of Sri Lanka and only about 40 minutes by car or bus to Galle to the west.
