Designed around the vernacular style of the property’s original Dutch owner, the property’s name is inspired by the expatriate owners’ three daughters.
The one time simple cottage has been turned into a beautiful beach retreat that remains faithful to the key features of the original Dutch-style cottage, including a sweeping veranda and high ceilings that feature throughout the house and blending in understated antique pieces with simple and functioning modern comforts.
The beach house is equipped with WIFI available throughout the house. DVD players and sound systems are also available.
The two storey property is a space designed to host family and friends without sacrificing a sense of personal space.
Upstairs is the Loft, a unique and spacious open plan living area with its own external entrance which is perfect for a young family – or a great space for the kids to bunk while the parents enjoy the privacy of the rooms below. The loft features views overlooking the pool, beach and ocean, makes 3 Sisters a special beach house distinct from your typical “tropical villa”.

The best way to describe The Three Sister’s approach to dining is simple – think great home cooked food, but with someone else doing all the cooking. The menu is homely and sure to please. Breakfast is a wonderful spread of Sri Lankan and Western classics with seasonal fruits, locally baked breads, jams, roti, curries and eggs however you like them.
After a morning of beaching or lounging around the house, lunchtime is usually a lazy part of the day and kept simple. From the menu, you can enjoy either a selection of vegetarian curries; pasta and salad; or a platter of sandwiches. When it comes to dinner time, you could choose to dine under the veranda or on the deck with the stars overhead.
Dinner is always a special time; try out the fish, prawn, chicken or pork curries which will be some of the best you will have while in Sri Lanka and the selection of seasonal vegetarian curries are simply amazing.
