Beachfront villa situated on Sri Lanka’s Southern coast, four spacious bedrooms boasting spectacular views, pool
Sensationally situated on Sri Lanka’s Southern coast, Ocean's Edge offers a true taste of exotic seclusion. With four spacious bedrooms boasting spectacular views, this colonially-inspired villa also features comfortably furnished wraparound verandahs; a fully-equipped kitchen and an air conditioned TV room.
In the extensive, tropical, bird-filled garden beyond sits a gorgeous swimming pool that’s the perfect place to cool off in the heat of the day, whilst opportunities for exploratory walks along the near-deserted beach are endless. Fully-staffed, Ocean's Edge is beautifully private and perfectly suited for families, groups and nature lovers looking to completely relax and unwind.
Private, peaceful and picturesque, Ocean's Edge is a spectacular property which, as its name suggests, lies within a whisper of the soulful sea on Sri Lanka’s dramatic Southern coastline.
Situated in an extensive 23-acre garden filled with swaying coconut palms and alive with dancing parrots, waltzing butterflies and sky-diving kingfishers, the garden is a paradise for escapists. With no other neighbours in view, the location is entirely private and even a walk along the shell-scattered, wave-sloshed beach at sunset is unlikely to result in anybody interrupting the peace.
A delightful jade-green swimming pool to the rear of the property reflects the natural surroundings as a tree protrudes from the middle of its T-shaped design. Timber decking scattered with sunbeds surround the pool whilst a deep verandah is perfectly situated for relaxed and informal daytime dining.
Although Ocean's Edge is only six years old, its elegant architecture and antique furnishings tell a different tale. Soaring ceilings, gentle archways and deep verandahs that wrap around the house on two levels mimic the beautiful designs of the Dutch colonialists and allow gentle breezes to infiltrate and cool the interiors. The house offers a plethora of living and dining areas that are beautifully positioned for admiring the views.
With its four beautifully spacious ensuite bedrooms: two doubles, a twin and a single ground floor room with a baby cot, Ocean's Edge is particularly suitable for families with younger children. The house is looked after by a welcoming staff team who tend to your every need with traditional Sri Lankan hospitality, whilst trips to nearby Tangalle, national parks, bird-filled wetlands and cultural sights can all be arranged with ease.

Villa Ocean's Edge is located in the tiny rural village of Thillawatawana, surrounded by paddy fields and small lotus-strewn lakes which extend East towards the Kalametiya wetlands and the red barren earth of Ussangoda, whilst reaching back Westwards to Tangalle via Rekawa, home to Sri Lanka’s only protected turtle sanctuary.
The beach offers the opportunity for endless strolls, usually without seeing another soul, and makes this villa ideal for lovers of the great outdoors. Lots of wildlife visit the garden and the region is especially good for bird watchers as there are a number of wetlands and wildlife parks that can be visited nearby.
Villa Ocean's Edge is in a remote area so if you do want to eat out, you will need to travel around 16km to Tangalle. But this seclusion might be exactly what you are looking for. You can’t swim in the sea here, so if you do want a dip in the ocean we recommend you head to Talalla Beach to the West of Tangalle, or better still take a day trip to Mirissa.
