GUEST INTERACTION
You will have the whole place to yourselves, with as much or as little support as you desire from our very helpful staff who live off the premises but are available for you when ever you wish. You will be greeted by our Chef Chaminda, who will welcome you, show you around. He will give you a set of keys and a mobile phone with a local SIM card and numbers that you will find useful during your stay. Chaminda is on call for Guests throughout your stay, to ensure it is an enjoyable and fully supported experience. There is also a Cleaning Maid Service every 2 days, and the pool and garden are maintained daily. A Licensed Tuk Tuk Driver is on call for guests, just a phone call away, and he will happily run you anywhere you wish and back in the local area, both day and night. He can also arrange sightseeing trips to local places of interest. We are happy to help with anything you may need, and you can contact us at any time. Optional Private Chef Service This really is an incredibly inexpensive way to Dine and drink in style, on delicious food of your own choosing, without paying corkage charge or the inflated prices of restaurants. Chaminda is also great at cooking child friendly food for our little Guests. Chef Chaminda is available to cook for you whenever you wish, and he can cater to all dietary requirements and preferences. His service is purely optional, and you can use his service whenever you want - all the time, some of the time or not at all - its entirely up to you. You can decide on a day to day basis when you arrive, and pay him in local currency (Sri Lankan Rupees LKR). If you would like a meal preparing for your arrival you only have to ask. His food is amazing and he can cook a wide range of local and international dishes. He can cook anything you want with fresh local produce. You decide what you would like to eat, or he can suggest menu ideas. You can agree a menu with him and he will shop for the ingredients, and beers and wine etc (there's no corkage charge), while you relax and enjoy your holiday. He will prepare, cook, serve, clear up, wash the dishes, put them away, and leave the kitchen clean. Guests pay him direct for the actual cost of ingredients (he will give you the receipts), and a small service fee. That is: 500 Rupees (£2.79 $3.40) to cover his petrol when he shops for ingredients. If you just want him to cook any 1 meal a day, his service charge is 3,000 Rupees. That is for all of you not per person. If you want him to cook more than 1 meal a day, his service charge is 5,000 Rupees a day. Again that is for all of you, not per person, and could include Breakfast, Lunch, Diner / a Barbecue, and Snacks. Chaminda's food is delicious, and he's a fully qualified Chef with experience of working in hotels, private villas and even a Saudi Royal Palace! Chaminda does of course cook a wonderful traditional Sri Lankan Rice and Curry, including lots of different types of curries such as chicken, fish, vegetable, meat and mouthwatering lagoon prawns, with rice, nann bread, poppadoms and mango chutney.
NEIGHBOURHOOD AND OVERVIEW
Situated in a safe and tranquil residential area close to Narigama Beach, the most beautiful beach in Hikkaduwa, with its many bars, restaurants and shops. Villa Sapphire is a peaceful oasis, with easy access to the beach and town of Hikkaduwa, and everything it has to offer. Our location ensures you can be at the beach in 5 minutes, and join in the party nights at the many beach bars when ever you want. Equally you can escape from the noise of trains, traffic and all night music; and relax in calm tranquility at the villa with a late night swim in the pool, staring at the stars or listening to music of your own choosing whenever you wish. Near to shops, supermarkets, fresh vegetable and fish markets and all amenities. Local convenience food shopping and bakery less than 5 minutes walk away. An idyllic place to relax, swim or sunbathe privately, or join in the fun of Hikkaduwa's beach scene and its vibrant party nightlife. There are a wealth of activities on hand if you wish, catering to enthusiasts of surfing, wake boarding and water sports, snorkeling and scuba diving, wildlife (including whale and dolphin watching, and turtle sanctuaries), history, culture and temples, yoga, Ayurveda treatments and massages, lagoon and river boat trips, tea plantations, shopping and party nightlife. If you want to see elephants, the best place (for the elephants) is to take an overnight trip to Yala National Park, to see them in their natural environment. The park is also home to monkeys, crocodiles, birds, buffalo, and the island's largest population of leopards - don't forget your camera. The UNESCO World Heritage site of the Galle Fort is a 25 minute drive away. If you need any help with sights to see and places to visit- please just ask. Please see our House Manual for many more ideas for things to see and do. There's also a copy at the villa which will help you make those decisions.
GETTING AROUND
We can arrange airport and other transfers for you, or provide directions to Villa Sapphire. Once in Hikkaduwa, Tuk Tuks (three wheeler taxis) are everywhere and drivers will court your custom. A named Licensed Tuk Tuk Driver is on call for guests, just a phone call away. He will happily take you anywhere you wish locally, including sightseeing trips. We provide our Guests with a mobile phone to call him, with local SIM card for cheap calls within Sri Lanka. We can also put you in touch with a local Tour company, for sightseeing trips further away. Motorbikes, scooters and bicycles are available to hire locally. Driveway for parking, and sheltered parking for motor bike. Easy access to public transport by bus and train.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
There is a small additional charge for the cost of electricity used during your stay. Because guest's electricity usage vairies so much, we have found it impossible to build it into our price. The electricity price is subject to actual use, and is to be paid separately by guests in local currency on departure. An electricity meter reading is taken on arrival and departure, and you will be shown the meter readings. Our Property Manager will show you our electricity company website, and its Bill Calculator to calculate the actual cost of the electricity used during your stay. We have changed to a cheaper electricity tariff, and as an indicator, the average cost of electricity used per night has ranged from 918.40 Rupees to 1,737.45 Rupees (£5.08 - £9.61).

The Villa Sapphire is a beautiful blue gem in a field of emerald tropical foliage. Professionally built, lovingly decorated, conveniently situated, and attentively run, Villa Sapphire is an eye-popping and heart-capturing retreat in the jungle. Featuring a cool blue pool, massive four-post beds, wildlife peeking over the wall to say hello, a back yard that stretches away into the distance, and monks who called us to cocktails with peaceful, ethereal chant at 6pm every evening, Villa Sapphire is a magical little place. The house is 2 km from the main coast road. We spent the week in a rental car, so the distance from the beach and town was not a factor for us. Everything inside the house is as advertised. Do read the house manual, as it is complete, well-written, and helpful. Gizelle and Simon were quick to respond, succinct in their answers, and quite helpful. House manager Lakshan was a real sweetheart; he picked up dinner for us from two different restaurants on our first night, arranged private performances by local chefs on our last two nights, acted as an always-available concierge, and yet still managed to give us a world of privacy. The maid was invisible, yet her handiwork was plainly evident in the clean surfaces and corners of the house. In short, do yourself a favor and stay a few nights in Villa Sapphire. I already put my money where my mouth is: I stayed an extra night because my family and I just couldn't tear ourselves away to go anywhere else.

Gizelle's villa is absolutely wonderful ! The house itself is as per the pictures. It's big, clean and for Hikkaduwa standards, quite luxurious. Gizelle is a great host; she was easy to reach and the instructions were very clear and useful (her House Manual is by far the best I've seen on Airbnb so far). I highly recommend this place !
