Just gone from an utterly amazing stay. Thank you so much. We were in the lap of luxury for an affordable price. Pushpa is an amazing cook and along with her house maid looked after us so well. Total relaxation. Fantastic accommodation, beautiful pool, exciting surf on the beach. Lovely people, delicious food. Thoroughly spoilt.
This is our third visit to the villa and we've had another wonderful holiday. Pushpa's cooking is fantastic whether it's authentic Sri Lankan or Italian. Taking Nangy the dog for walks on the beach was a favourite activity for our youngest daughter and exploring the local countryside with Rex as our guide was very interesting,
We will be back.
Our family of 6 stayed here in July 2015 for 14 days, we had the most fantastic, relaxed time.
Prior to booking we were concerned about the weather reports, but during our stay we had maybe 2 rain storms whose duration was longer than 10 minutes, so I would disregard the monsoon prospects
The pool was nice and clean, we went in the sea most days, but some days it was a bit too choppy
The food was fantastic and worked really well, the house keeper Pushpa would ask us what we would like, she then went shopping for the produce and we paid for it. A daily shopping bill was between 300 and 800 lkr about £15 to £40 per day for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 6. The quality of the food was fabulous and plentiful.
We played tennis daily, it was possible to walk in to town- took about 40 minutes, there wasn't alot to do in town, but that suited us.
We took the train to Kalutra, rented a mini bus to go to Galle, which was all interesting stuff
We hired a car, but progress on the road could be slow due to the mass of roadworks
Rex tended there garden to ensure it looked bright and colourful.
There was an on site security guard, but his main uses were to open and close the gates. Not once did we feel we needed the security.
We had a wonderful stay here in this luxurious house, and would not hesitate to recommend it

Thank you, Olaf and staff, for an amazing week at Villa Margareta. Our only regret was having to leave! The villa, huge pool, and the grounds are beautiful, and every small detail has been thought of in advance to make guests comfortable and relaxed. The place is even more beautiful than shown in the pictures and the sunsets are stunning. We traveled with our 18-month-old daughter and the place is well-suited to having a toddler running around. Pushpa the cook was very sweet and kept us fed and happy, and Rex was a great, punctual driver who knew the roads like the back of his hand. I have been recommending this place to everyone I know!
