눉The TV did not have any English speaking channels (or we couldn't find any after 2 minutes of trying). This did not affect us too much as we don't go on holiday to watch TV. You could also use the good WIFI to watch things on your phone or tablet. There are not many signs leading up to the villa and as a relatively new and small place, most tuk tuk drivers had no idea where it was. Therefore, make sure that you either have the contact number so that your driver can ring through or that you have a screen shot saved from google maps. Breakfast was great for its Sri Lankan authenticity however, some fruit would have been welcome in an otherwise carb loaded affair.
눇The staff consisted of a very polite house keeper. He didn't really speak much English but he nevertheless made sure we were more than satisfied during our stay. They say that 90% of language is not spoken, and he went some way to personifying this fact. The owner was very friendly, often making his presence felt by trying to offer advice on the area. Facilities were good. WIFI worked well throughout the villa including in the room. There was also an iron, plug adapter and fan/AC. The villa was very clean. Everything seemed new and well maintained. The bed was huge, the pillows and bedding were of good quality and well kept. The shower was a very good size and the communal space in the living room can be used if needed. The villa was extremely good value for money when comparing it to other places that was stayed in Colombo and neighbouring seaside towns. The suitability of the location depends upon exactly where you want to go and how you want to get there. It is a 30 minute walk into Galle Fort where most restaurants are located. It is also a short tuk tuk journey from several other beaches where you can surf, relax or eat. Tuk tuk's are very cheap (usually no more than £3 a journey) so although the villa may not be directly on a beach or in the middle of the fort, this did not hinder us. We enjoyed our stay so much that we actually returned after being disappointed by the accommodation and local amenities in our next destination, Mirissa.

눇It's a new property with 3 rooms. Slightly away from Galle city but amazingly calm location. Beautifully architectured property worth stay. Extremely helpful staff (only one guy was there) and owner himself came and had a chat. Excellent breakfast.
