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 !
