South Point Villa is a three-bedroom villa fronting a pristine stretch of beach near Koggala on the Galle Coast. The garden steps out directly onto a stretch of white sandy beach with its own coral protection that enables safer swimming and snorkelling. Interiors are well furnished with teak and oak floors. Relax on the lawn, have an afternoon siesta in the shade of some mangroves, or dine by candlelight on the wooden-decked terrace. The picture-postcard views, including stilt fisherman on the distant horizon, make this place inspirational for artists and writers alike. The owners also have a neighbouring property: South Point Abbey, a colonial beach house. A connecting door gives direct access, making the two properties ideal for two families travelling together.
Three large a/c bedrooms have comfortable and inviting four-poster beds with overhead canopies fitted tastefully with mosquito nets. The master bedroom has two four-poster beds with a direct sea view.
