The Space Snorkeling, beach fishing and surfing can also enjoyed directly in front of the apartment. There are no residences on either side of the terrace and only one apartment above so it is completely private and undeveloped yet only a short distance to some of the best cafes and restaurants in the south. Two of these cafes and restaurants are within walking distance of Podi Gedara. Guest AccessPodi Gedara is one of kind. It is rare to find a place where you can watch an azure blue kingfisher perched on a bough only two metres from the window, a stilt fisherman plying his bamboo rod or the surfers catching the break directly in front of the house. Podi Gedara's kitchen shutters open directly onto this scene and the large adjoining stone paved terrace provides you with the perfect setting where you can watch these wonderful events from the sunlounges,dining table or, alternatively, take a more active role and swim in the sea itself. Interaction with GuestsPodi Gedara means, 'Little House' in Sinhala. It is a special place offering a unique experience on this part of the coast of Sri Lanka. There are few high quality, self contained, 1 bedroom apartments right on the sea along the southern coast that offer complete privacy and the addition of a number of optional luxury services that allows you to truly relax. The coast in both directions of Podi Gedara offers exciting destination choices. Within half an hours drive you can head to Weligama to see the hand painted fishing boats, roadside fish market or the unique stilt fishermen. Explore the many Buddhist temples including Yatagala which is at least 2,000 years old and lies hidden amongst a granite boulder outcrop above the surrounding rice paddies. Visit a coastal tea or cinnamon plantation and luxuriate with a decadent lunch overlooking the local winding river or surf the popular breaks which are 'just down the road' from Podi Gedara. If you are a 'foodie,' Podi Gedara is a great place to be as it is central to the best cafes and restaurants in the south. You can even walk along the beach from the apartment to several good cafes and restaurants but you will never take longer then 10 minutes by tuk tuk to get to any of the other good food /drinking options available in the region. Podi Gedara is the perfect base to explore the best assets of southern Sri Lanka.

                    Podi Gedara is a beautiful, tropical, unique place. It is perfect for singles or couples. It consists of a luxurious one bedroom apartment located directly adjacent the sea with its own natural, safe swimming pool directly in front of it and beaches wrapping around on both sides. Many sections of the southern coast of Sri Lanka are too rough for safe swimming however the olympic size, natural pool located directly in front of Podi Gedara allows swimmers to swim and lap for most of the year. Snorkeling, beach fishing and surfing can also enjoyed directly in front of the apartment. There are no residences on either side of the terrace and only one apartment above so it is completely private and undeveloped yet only a short distance to some of the best cafes and restaurants in the south. Two of these cafes and restaurants are within walking distance of Podi Gedara. Daily Life at Podi Gedara Podi Gedara is one of kind. It is rare to find a place where you can watch an azure blue kingfisher perched on a bough only two metres from the window, a stilt fisherman plying his bamboo rod or the surfers catching the break directly in front of the house. Podi Gedara's kitchen shutters open directly onto this scene and the large adjoining stone paved terrace provides you with the perfect setting where you can watch these wonderful events from the sunlounges,dining table or, alternatively, take a more active role and swim in the sea itself. The coast in both directions of Podi Gedara offers exciting destination choices. Within half an hours drive you can head to Weligama to see the hand painted fishing boats, roadside fish market or the unique stilt fishermen. Explore the many Buddhist temples including Yatagala which is at least 2,000 years old and lies hidden amongst a granite boulder outcrop above the surrounding rice paddies.

If you are a 'foodie,' Podi Gedara is a great place to be as it is central to the best cafes and restaurants in the south. You can even walk along the beach from the apartment to several good cafes and restaurants but you will never take longer then 10 minutes by tuk tuk to get to any of the other good food /drinking options available in the region.

There's also a protected rock pool, perfect for the kids to swim and the adults to dip. If the thought of getting out of the hammock, or moving from the ambalama is too much to bear, no need to worry, our staff are on hand to ensure your stay is both comfortable and hassle free. Each morning they'll rustle up a delicious breakfast of fresh tropical fruits, eggs (how you like them), toast, preserves and, more importantly, tea and coffee!
