About Property Manager
We purchased the antique house in 2015, it had been in the same family for approximately 100 years and had been a much loved family home, staying in the same family all of its life. The house was dilapidated but had a marvellous warm atmosphere which we fell in love with. We began its renovation and updating the same year. This was our first venture in this field and was part of a dream to some day retire to Sri Lanka. We first visited in 2010 and fell in love with the country and its people. We rebuilt the house adding new bathrooms, remodelling the inside and adding a pool, pool pavilion and staff quarters. We also remodelled the garden and its boundary wall. The project was completed late in 2016 and we opened our doors to our first guests in November 2016. We have employed a wonderful staff team who run the villa on a day to day basis for us under the guidance of our Manager Rakitha. We reside in the UK and visit every few months, however we run the business and our website and social media presence from the UK and maintain daily contact with our staff and guests. We are very proud of Sihinaya and the wonderful reviews we receive from our guests.
Sihinaya Villa is in a beautiful, quiet residential area of Weligama on the southern coastal area of Sri Lanka.
It is situated away from the busy main road although only five minutes Tuk Tuk ride away from the town and main beaches. Our nearest sandy beach is situated just behind the villa and only two short minutes walk away. We are also within very easy reach of Galle with its historic UNESCO World Heritage Site Fort and famous art and cultural area and the towns of Mirissa and Matara.
