    The SpaceSleeping 4, this beautiful villa, is set in a private 3.5 acre estate, above the jungle, where bright and vibrantly coloured birds fly playfully in the breeze, swooning and swooping around the garden and the pool, and our charming staff are there to pander to your every whim, while you laze around in the sun, or swim in our 50 foot infinity pool… Both rooms are individually decorated, have en-suite bathrooms, and their own outside seating area on the terrace. And you are less than ten minutes from the beach. A private home for much of the year, Uda Kanda is unlike other villas. Decorated as a home, rather than a typical rental villa, and sitting atop a hill, Uda Kanda is one the most relaxing villas on the island. With its refreshing pool, and views stretching to the Indian Ocean in the West, and to the distant, lush, emerald-green hills in the North, guests are immediately transported to a distant paradise. Being away from the hectic excitement of the beach, the villa is also home to an enviable array of wildlife,who will keep you entertained... And whilst you relax in the shade of the Ambalama, let our team of full-time staff look after you, from rustling up Western culinary masterpieces, or spicy local specialities, to freshly made fruit cocktails; or even arrange a pampering massage as the sun slowly sets on another perfect day... [Note: This listing is for those people looking for 2 bedrooms, sleeping 4. Uda Kanda is also listed on this site as a three bedroom villa sleeping 6. However, in this listing the pricing is reduced, to reflect the use of just 2 bedrooms.] WHAT PREVIOUS GUESTS HAVE SAID... Thank you so much for making our first trip to Sri Lanka so memorable – staying here was definitely the highlight! The food was fantastic and you looked after us as if we were family. We will be back!! R,E,E&BM, Jan 2011 Nothing prepared me for the spectacular position, atmosphere and magnificent building. Thank you so much it’s been a wonderful tonic. “HILL TOP Heaven”! SM, Oct 2011 I love, love, loved it. Thought it was utterly perfect. Staff were great - so sweet and helpful and overall the place has a great vibe. Honestly it felt like staying in someone's lovely home rather than a soul-less designer villa, which is part of the charm. I didn't want to leave! I will definitely recommend it! CS, Mar 2012 The house is perfect, there is nothing missing and the staff even better. S&BB, Jan 2011 It was a great moment to arrive at Uda Kanda after dark and to see this beautiful house illuminated, and then the wonderful experience of waking up to find oneself surrounded by jungle, with lovely birds around the pool. This has been an unforgettable good time. Thanks too, to your delightful Podi, Sanjiva, Karanapala and dear Jayanthi, and thanks to you. TS, Jan 2012 This has been the most wonderful fortnight’s holiday I have ever had the pleasure to pass. To see the house at dusk with the lights on, sitting by the pool with a beer, after a hot day down at Wijaya, is a fond memory I shall take with me for the rest of my days. Add to this the wildlife – birds and mammals – this captivated me into an instant “Twitcher’s” world with the aid of the house bird book. The staff all worked with real kindness to ensure we will definitely be back. R&TW, Mar 2011

We love being in a village that sells an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables. A favourite thing to do is take an early morning walk around the village. We also like being in a tropical 5 acre jungle surrounded by swaying coconut trees. Having good access roads like Akuressa Road make it convenient to get to Galle and the Beaches in 10 minutes. Being on a hill we also attract cooling breezes and have shaded tree canopies. This is a great contrast to the concrete landscape of Galle city and the Fort which can get very hot and stuffy during the hotter months.

        The SpaceSleeping 6*, this beautiful 3 bedroom villa, is set in a private 3.5 acre estate, above the jungle, where bright and vibrantly coloured birds fly playfully in the breeze, swooning and swooping around the garden and the pool, and our charming staff are there to pander to your every whim, while you laze around in the sun, or swim in our 50 foot infinity pool… All rooms are individually decorated, have en-suite bathrooms, and their own outside seating area on the terrace. (*Note bedroom 3 is EITHER King Size double OR two singles) And you are less than ten minutes from the beach. A private home for much of the year, Uda Kanda is unlike other villas. Decorated as a home, rather than a typical rental villa, and sitting atop a hill, Uda Kanda is one the most relaxing villas on the island. With its refreshing pool, and views stretching to the Indian Ocean in the West, and to the distant, lush, emerald-green hills in the North, guests are immediately transported to a distant paradise. Being away from the hectic excitement of the beach, the villa is also home to an enviable array of wildlife,who will keep you entertained... And whilst you relax in the shade of the Ambalama, let our team of full-time staff look after you, from rustling up Western culinary masterpieces, or spicy local specialities, to freshly made fruit cocktails; or even arrange a pampering massage as the sun slowly sets on another perfect day... WHAT PREVIOUS GUESTS HAVE SAID... Thank you so much for making our first trip to Sri Lanka so memorable – staying here was definitely the highlight! The food was fantastic and you looked after us as if we were family. We will be back!! R,E,E&BM, Jan 2011 Nothing prepared me for the spectacular position, atmosphere and magnificent building. Thank you so much it’s been a wonderful tonic. “HILL TOP Heaven”! SM, Oct 2011 I love, love, loved it. Thought it was utterly perfect. Staff were great - so sweet and helpful and overall the place has a great vibe. Honestly it felt like staying in someone's lovely home rather than a soul-less designer villa, which is part of the charm. I didn't want to leave! I will definitely recommend it! CS, Mar 2012 The house is perfect, there is nothing missing and the staff even better. S&BB, Jan 2011 It was a great moment to arrive at Uda Kanda after dark and to see this beautiful house illuminated, and then the wonderful experience of waking up to find oneself surrounded by jungle, with lovely birds around the pool. This has been an unforgettable good time. Thanks too, to your delightful Podi, Sanjiva, Karanapala and dear Jayanthi, and thanks to you. TS, Jan 2012 This has been the most wonderful fortnight’s holiday I have ever had the pleasure to pass. To see the house at dusk with the lights on, sitting by the pool with a beer, after a hot day down at Wijaya, is a fond memory I shall take with me for the rest of my days. Add to this the wildlife – birds and mammals – this captivated me into an instant “Twitcher’s” world with the aid of the house bird book. The staff all worked with real kindness to ensure we will definitely be back. R&TW, Mar 2011

        The SpaceSilva Tree-house is a peaceful, secluded tree-house on the Rumasalla headland between Galle and Unawatuna Beach, on the South Coast of Sri Lanka. It's quiet and private, and only a few minutes from the beach at Unawatuna and the Galle Fort. The house is a steel and glass tower that rises above the canopy of the trees. Three bedrooms on the first floor are within the trees, keeping them cool and shaded. The top floor is above the canopy and is a single, glass-sided hall with sofas and kitchen and a balcony that looks over jungle to the sea. The house is rented on a bed and breakfast basis. Mrs Ira, the manager who lives next door, is a great cook and can provide any other meals you require. She's also an ayevedic masseuse and completely reliable baby-sitter. We can arrange airport collections and tours for you. If there are less people our rates come down. Guest AccessThe house is rented as a whole. A watcher is on site at night, but otherwise you have the place completely to yourself. The NeighborhoodThere's no neighbor in sight of the house. You look across a valley to the tip of the Rumasalla headland and the Peace Pagoda, and then the sea. The elevated position of the house provides a cool breeze, and absolute privacy. Getting AroundA walk to Jungle beach on the harbour takes 10 minutes. The walk to Unawatuna Beach, through the villages, takes 20 minutes. The house has a mobile phone with the number of a tuk tuk driver who will arrive quickly and take you to the beaches or to the Galle Fort, which is about a 10 minute drive. Other Things to NotePlease note that there are stairs. And while the house is safe for children, it may not suit elderly people with mobility issues, or the parents of very active small kids.
