Cottage overview

Ideal for couples or those with a baby or young child.

Rockland Garden (also locally known as Saman Siri Cottage) is situated in a safe and peaceful location within the grounds of a Sri Lankan family home in Narigama at the south end of Hikkaduwa. Close enough to walk to restaurants, shops and the beach, but tucked away amidst 'real' Sri Lankan life, it offers the best of both worlds.

The family garden is well-tended with lots of tropical plants, birds and occasional visiting monkeys.

The bedroom has a double bed with sprung mattress, mosquito net, air conditioning unit, two clothes hanging rails with coat hangers, a shelf unit, a writing table and chair and a mini safe. Bed linen and towels are provided (but not beach towels).

A cot bed suitable for a baby or toddler or a folding bed suitable for a child up to the age of 12 are available at no extra charge. Both have a mattress and mosquito net.

There is no extra charge for electricity or cooking gas.

A microwave can be hired for LKR 500 a day.


The cottage is situated halfway between Narigama and Thiranagama Junctions, close to Sumanarama Buddhist Temple and about 30 metres behind the railway line.

The houses are not numbered and there are no street names making the place difficult to find on the first visit. We always meet guests on the main road and guide them to the property.


It's easy to hire a motorbike or bicycle. Tuktuks (three wheeler taxis) are readily available. Public buses are also plentiful. Hikkaduwa main bus and train stations are 2km away.


One of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Hikkaduwa is just a few minutes' walk away and was the location for the British TV programme Good Karma Hospital.

There are lots of things to do in and around Hikkaduwa including:

a visit to working tea plantation (Handunugoda)
local markets
a moonstone mine at Meetiyagoda
an elephant reserve (Udawalawe National Park)
Kottawa forest reserve
lagoon trips at Dodanduwa (by canoe) and Balapitiya (by motor boat)
turtle sanctuaries
feed wild turtles on the beach
PADI scuba diving
paddle boarding
sea fishing trips
whale watching from Mirissa
water sports
guided bicycle rides through the paddy fields
yoga classes
cookery classes

And of course there is the beach to enjoy with lots of different bars and restaurants.

The historic town of Galle - a UNESCO World Heritage site - with its 16th century Dutch Fort and international cricket ground is only 15km away. Look out for Galle's international literary festival held in January each year.

We can also help organise local and island round tours and airport pickup and drops.

Family from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates · April 2014
We stayed here for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The family is very friendly and helpful. They provided a crib with mosquito net for our 9 month old and the kitchen is adequately supplied. The property is just over the railway tracks in a tropical garden next to a Buddhist temple. Its very quiet except for the occasional train that goes...

From St-petersburg
We rented a cottage Samana Siri in December 2012. Mr. Saman very friendly and caring host. On the first day of arrival showed us shops, beach, recommended us a restaurant with good food. Cottage is not very big, is set back from the road so noise is not audible. In general, all fits the description. Many thanks to Samana and his son for the...

From Leicestershire
My wife and I stayed here for 5 weeks Feb 2011. For what you pay, this place has to be the bargain of all time. Compared with other villas close to where it is at, this place has got what it takes at a price that has to be seen to be beat. Close to the northern end of Hikk, and a number of quality restaurants as well as access to the beach. The...
