Marley’s Beach House is a cosy two-bedroomed beach villa in a fishing village called Mihiripanna, just five minutes away from Unawatuna on the Galle Coast. It benefits from a small tropical garden with swaying palms and steps leading down to the sea. This self-contained beach house is well equipped and can accommodate up to five guests. The interiors are colourful with modern furniture. The house is rented for a minimum of four nights on a bed-and-breakfast basis.
There are two a/c double rooms - one furnished with a king size bed and the other a queen size bed. There is also a couch in the living room that can sleep an additional guest. There are two bathrooms with h/w showers. One also has a bathtub and is situated outdoors, allowing for wonderful sea views.
The living and dining area opens out to a verandah overlooking the sea. There is a family room with plenty of books and board games. The open-plan kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, six-burner cooker, and dishwasher. Guests can eat out, cook their own meals or have the in-house cook-cum-caretaker prepare Sri Lankan meals. He will also be happy to do the grocery shopping. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages. There are several bars, cafes and restaurants just walking distance away in Unawatuna. There are also five-star hotels in Koggala and Galle Fort offering fine dining. Marley’s doesn’t have a swimming pool, but the sea in front of the house is good for swimming during the season from December to April.
Why We Like It
The swing on the beach and white bench in front of the sea are just two homely touches in this well-located llittle beach house.
Mihiripanna is close to Unawatuna’s beachside cafes and restaurants as well as the historic 17C Dutch Fort in Galle which is only 15 minutes away. The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take about four hours or consider taking the Air taxi to Koggola which is only 10 minutes from here.
