The space

2 AC BR Private Sea View Apartment

This is a two bedroom private apartment overlooking the Indian Ocean located on a first floor of beach front property. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and very comfortable beds for guests. The apartment has air conditioning rooms, modern baths with hot water showers, and a small but fully functional and lovely kitchen. Internet access through Wi-Fi and eight television channels in English. The large balcony where you can spend a good deal time, is a dining space and has additional seating in two conversation areas at either end of the space. There is an outdoor shower and foot bath when coming in off the beach. The balcony also overlooks its own walled-in yard with chaise longues for sun worshipers to watch the waves. The principle feature of this balcony though, is that it looks directly out on the waves braking on the reefs, giving the impression that you are looking out over the prow of a great ship on the Indian Ocean.


Hikkaduwa area Information
The beach of Hikkaduwa is situated 98 km from Colombo towards the south of Sri Lanka. This fun coastal town 14 kms from Galle was the first (1960's) of Sri Lanka's beautiful beaches to be discovered by tourists. Snorkeling and diving in the clear waters are the major past-time along this stretch and is the most environmentally friendly way to see the colorful fish that dart around. The coral sanctuary found on the coast of Hikkaduwa is a large shallow body of water enclosed by a reef, decorated with layers of multi colored corals, witch is home to countless number of colorful fish. Off the beach there is a collection of tine islets surrounded by beautiful coral formations. Many species of fish and large turtles are found here.There are more than four different shipwrecks for diving enthusiasts to explore along with dive shops offering PADI courses and equipment. Plenty of beachfront accommodation and a reputation as the second best surf spot in Sri Lanka by the international board-riding set, and the reason so many visit Hikkaduwa is blatantly clear.

The resort area has now engulfed two or three villages south of it, and is now a 4km strip of hotels, shops, bars, restaurants and guesthouses. The beaches are nice and wide and swimming is safe here, though the currents are stronger south of Hikkaduwa proper. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore and is still populated by exotic fish and sea turtles. Glass bottomed boats are available for visitors wanting to admire the wonders of the deep while keeping their feet dry!

After a shot distance southwards from the center of the reef, it diminishes given rise to a wider sandy bottomed beach with good waves ideal for board surfing and body surfing. You can always rent the necessary equipment needed for snorkeling and surfing. Hikkaduwa is an established tourist destination and the surfing there is quite well known. You won't see the Indonesian style overcrowding here though. The reef is coral so a first aid kit and booties are handy. Localism is usually not a problem though we have seen some tourists get some hassle. Respect them and they leave you alone pretty much. There are many shops selling Masks, Gems, Jewellery, Batik, Antiques and etc. along with several Buddhist temples, all which add spice to life at Hikkaduwa.

The apt is stunning really well finished , lovely to relax away from the madness of the street and good to relax in the heat of the day. I love the alfresco kitchen , it's so cute . The beach isn't the greatest directly outside, but it's a lovely walk up the beach past the coral reef . It's still stunning to sit and watch the waves. The apartment is 200 meters from the railway tip its right next to hikkadua clinic / pharmacy . The people in there are lovely and the host staff came immediately to let us in out of the heat . You also have a lovely gent who works security at night . Beautiful place , I'd certainly go back . Thank you kindly

Form the minute we booked the communication has been spot on! We were picked up and taken to the apartment. Anything we needed was sorted instantly. Even when we mention we had been bitten by a mosquito, within two hours there was anti mosquito candles delivered. Also their knowledge of the area was fantastic and anything we wanted to do was arranged which really does take the stress out of a holiday. The apartment was as described, the view was spectacular. Would definitely go back.

We had a good experience at our stay in the apartment. The apartment are located just outside the resort area at the beach, but still in central Hikkaduwa town. Turtles are swimming and eating just outside the apartment, and you can watch them from the terrace. We was not recommended to swim at the beach just outside, because of corales and big wawes. It's only 300 meters to a good part of the beach.

We had a really nice eight-day stay at hikkavilla beachhouse. The rooms were very clean, european toilets, comfortable shower and even a washing machine. Air condition, ventilator an a queen size bed. The appartement has a separated kitchen and a generous balcony. The view was every time fantastic, cause the ocean is just 15m from the house. You hear almost no traffic sounds from the high frequented street. The owner of the house offered a lot of different trips, close a more far away. Everybody should think about the donations. Sometimes felt like tourist bazaar. A specially at the moonstone mine.

Our host had a dedicated team to make sure we were looked after. There was even security at night. We felt very welcomed and had a great stay. Waking up to the sound of the oceana dn the surf each morning was amazing. We asked for a cook and Chef Lal was part of what our stay was so memorable. He is tops! Our host and his team responded promptly to our our requests. On our last day we could not have a late check out but our host very generously accommodated us for free at one of their other holiday villas and made us comfortable and welcomed! The host also had lots of sightseeing suggestions and great drivers! Highly recommended.

The description was absolutely accurate. The location looks a bit dingy and loud but the house is clean and quiet. Very basic (particularly the kitchen) but the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are nice. It is a very short walk down to a lot of restaurants and bars and good swimming. The beach right behind the house is very dirty which is too bad but, again, easy swimming and cleaner beaches only a few minutes walk down. Host was wonderful and even let us stay in another of his properties on our last day as our flight out wasn't until late at night from Colombo.
