This vibrant beach house is as outgoing as its owners: filled with color and bursting with life, it’s obvious just how much love has been poured into this home-away-from-home. The villa is airy and spacious and decorated in rich, warm hues of blue and orange, with bold technicolor prints adorning the walls, and is filled with a wide selection of books, music and magazines. With many indoor and outdoor lounge spaces, this sweet seaside home is ideal for a honeymoon couple seeking to relax in privacy. Housekeeper Kumara is as much a part of the Kikili experience as the property – he is a wonderfully discreet host who cleans the house daily, and is also an excellent cook. Enjoy his delicious dishes at the dining table or on the veranda overlooking the sea.
Kikili has one charming bedroom, complete with an ensuite bathroom and a/c, sitting room, blue circular kitchen and a veranda overlooking the ocean. There is also a pull-out mattress so, although the property is ideally suited to couples, young children can also be accommodated.
Things to do ?
Housekeeper Kumara is an excellent chef and a wonderful host: having trained at The Sun House and Dutch House in Galle, he can cook a wide range of scrumptious dishes ranging from sensational salads to succulent seafood, fresh fish, delicious soups and tempting desserts. Choose daily from the menu and Kumara will shop and prepare the meals for you. Upon arrival, guests must present Kumara with a float and he will present the receipts to you on his return (or at the end of your stay). Kumara has a couple of nights off per week – you can either cook for yourself using the ingredients he has purchased for you, or explore the vast range of eateries in Unawatuna and Galle Fort. Wijaya Beach, a delightful café, is just a five-minute stroll away. Wine is available, and guests are invited to bring their own alcoholic beverages.
Just for the kids
Kikili is very family-friendly, despite it being suited to couples. Children can enjoy the pool, garden and the beach, which is just a few meters walk from the house.
