Your own tropical holiday home in paradise!
Perfect for families or parties of 6 or more people.
We also rent room only as a guest house (contact owner for availability and room only rates).
Jungleside House is located just five minutes walk from the beach at Wewelgoda just south of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, its right in the middle of the largest and most beautiful bay in the South West of Sri Lanka. The Jungle house at Hikkaduwa has its own private garden and provides you with a very comfortable base from where to enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkeling, fishing or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine!
After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax around an open fire with seafood BBQ or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see local fishermen hauling in their catch, or later on at night, a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own holiday villa in Hikkaduwa and take everything at your own pace. You can choose to visit the nearby resorts and spa's (non guests admitted at most 5 star hotels), or you my wish to take some day trips down the coast surfing, whale watching, dining, hotel hopping, shopping or visiting heritage sites like the beautiful Galle Fort (with cricket grounds). We can also organise Southern Province and Sri Lanka-wide tours (Now including Jaffna Peninsula). Tuk Tuk's taxi's and scooter hire are readily available so there is no need to walk any where if the weather is too hot.
The House (For Rent or Lease)
The house is fully 4G WiFi connected, has three spacious double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, three wet rooms (showers hot & cold water), there are outdoor cold water showers on split levels, one main downstairs kitchen/diner and one outdoor kitchenette on the first floor balcony. On the ground floor is the open veranda where you can relax in the hammock. On the first floor a 54 feet balcony with hammocks and on the 2nd floor is a spacious yoga and cardio gym terrace. The beautiful mature garden has many fruit plants, banana, mango, pineapple, papaya, coconut and more. Each of the beds and chairs are professionally cut and hand carved from timber grown in the garden. All of the beds and steamer chairs were deliberately made over size, and the kitchen / dining table easily seats 6, this really is indoor and outdoor relaxation at its best.

Jungleside House was definately our cup of tea. It is isolated and quiet, with only animal noises, yet a very short walk from the beach and very good restaurants. Transport is easy to anywhere, although you may have to haggle a little. We didnt have the monkeys in the garden that others spoke about, but many birds, a monitor lizard, and the evening bat migration was always a sight to behold. Lal is very helpfull, if you have the mobile phone to get in touch with him. Also, the owner is very helpfull in arranging transport from the airport. The house has everything you need, maybe a little sparce on cooking facilities, but who needs to cook when its so reasonable to eat out? Its strong points are the many outdoor seating areas to relax and read etc. Many thanks to Michel and Katharina.
Very spacious, well maintained and equipped. it was a real treat to watch the bats and monkeys from the roof. A simple walk to the beach and all the facilities Hikka offers. Would definitely book again ...
We had a wonderful month at Jungleside. We loved the house.. clean, spacious, very quiet and, with our 3 year old grandson, we spent lots of time on the roof and balconies enjoying the hammocks and watching the wildlife... pretty birdsand monkeys. The house is very relaxing. Lal is a star- really helpful and polite and always ready to come and pick you up with shopping and take you on trips. The beach is near and we spent many days by the sea and sampled nearly all the beach restaurants. The bikes were great and we had some lovely rides round the quiet lanes. Galle is close and good for a day trip on the bus or train and the little turtle farm is a nice place to take small children to. An evening boat trip on the lake was also good. We really hope to come back sometime.
