South Coast » Talpe » Why House
There are few, if any, villas in Sri Lanka with such fabulous potential for accommodating large groupings of families and friends. With eight ensuite bedrooms spread between a main house, a garden house and a couple of cute cabanas Why House is one of the largest villas on the south coast, and comes complemented by a gorgeous two-acre impeccably maintained tropical garden. For generational groupings this spaciousness is superb as innumerable verandas, terraces and pockets of lawned gardens provide everyone with potential to find their own private pitch, alone or in a group.  
One of the villa’s biggest highlights is its swimming pool that languishes in the garden under the shade of coconut palms overlooking a patch of paddy fields beyond. Its shimmering greeny hue matches the verdancy of the garden that surrounds it and its huge size is more than enough for a full house, even when playing a boisterous game of water polo! Sun loungers sleepily scatter the terrace that generously encircles it and sunken jaccuzi benches within its depths offer the perfect private massage. The cry of birdsong is forever in the air at Why, and the sun sets behind the swimming pool so you can imagine just how much of a magical place it is to be in at the end of the day.
A sumptuous living room with built-in speakers is perfect for entertaining and spills onto garden side verandas to the front and back. In the heart of the garden, there’s an open sided dining pavilion that’s wonderful for lazy lunches and relaxed evening meals. Afternoon tea and cake here is a treat! Tucked away to the back of the Garden House is little spa veranda where massages can be enjoyed privately as the unfamiliar sounds of the tropical locale play in your ears. Why House comes with a staff of eleven including a wonderfully friendly host, Henrietta, and a manager who puts you immediately at ease. The chef is an asset to the house and rates include breakfast with all other meals charged at cost (plus 10 percent service charge). Galle’s beautiful beaches are five minutes away.
