Villas Dutch Colonial Country House
Inland Villa, Inland Hills Street, Karapitiya, 80000 Galle, Sri Lanka – Great location - show map
W D S Abeygoonawardena
This spacious colonial country house is located in a secluded and peaceful setting in Karapitya, Galle. Built in 18th century by the famous Dutch family “Epreums” who were the owners of N.O.H. Amangalle hotel and the prime ministers house (temple trees in colombo). The country house consist of three spacious rooms with attached bathrooms. During the 2nd World War, this house has been the temporary residence for Southland college, the premier girls school in southern Sri Lanka. In 1896 this manor house was acquired by (W D Diyonis Abeygoonawardena) father of the former Member of Parliament, Managing Director of Galle Motor Bus Company & the Lord Mayer of Galle, W.D.S. Abeygoonawardena and it has been their family residence ever since.
My name is Ushan Abeygoonawardena. Educated in Brisbane, Australia I have developed a great passion for hospitality while I was there. A former district manager for one of the leading multinational companies in Sri Lanka, I decided to quit my job to follow my true passion, hospitality. So I decided to convert my grand parents house in to a country house. Come and stay with us and experience the true essence of Sri Lankan hospitality. Once within the four acre estate of Inland Hills, the hustle and bustle of the town gives way to a secluded and peaceful setting. The country house consists of a dutiful private pool and its own restaurant headed by a well experienced chef who has worked in many star class hotels. This country house is the place to be if you want to relax, enjoy and get away from it all. Staying there with your children, family, friends and discretely surrounded by friendly and professional staff will give you the impression of being in a completely different world.
