Coconut Grove is a lovely traditional 4-bedroom village house sleeping 8 people in 4 double bedroom suites, that have been beautifully restored with some modern touches.
Situated in a tropical garden, this Sri Lankan family home has the luxury of a beautiful jungle side swimming pool, a poolside pavilion/yoga shala, an outdoor dining pavilion and BBQ area.
The appropriately named Coconut Grove is charming and unique.
Clay walls and polished floors create a coolness in this lovely house, whilst the refined furniture and antiques inspire a sense of grace and calm.
The 4 bedrooms are laid out in a square arrangement, with equal access to the cozy centrally located sitting room that has sofas and a Sat TV.
All the rooms are traditional and spacious with air con and over-head fans and come with characterful indoor/outdoor en-suite bathrooms.
An internal courtyard, a traditional feature of Sri Lankan houses, leads to the kitchen, a small store room with keypad safe and the internal dining room.
Double doors on either side of the property lead out to the gardens and pool.
The generous pool will keep swimmers of all ages entertained and refreshed and is overlooked at one end by the elevated pavilion (known locally as an ‘ambalama’ that literally means ‘meeting place’) that can either be festooned with cushions for a siesta or a yoga mat or two, for your own practice.
The outdoor dining pavilion and BBQ to the side of the house is an excellent addition and adds another dimension to this multi-faceted garden that also boasts visits from wonderful tropical birds.
If you want to step outside of this calm oasis, there are lovely beaches nearby where you can admire the enviable patience and agility of the local fisherman.
