Holiday Rental House
Silva Tree-house is a peaceful, secluded tree-house on the Rumasalla headland between Galle and Unawatuna Beach, on the South Coast of Sri Lanka. It's quiet and private, and only a few minutes from the beach at Unawatuna and the Galle Fort. The house is a steel and glass tower that rises above the canopy of the trees. Three bedrooms on the first floor are within the trees, keeping them cool and shaded. The top floor is above the canopy and is a single, glass-sided hall with sofas and kitchen and a balcony that looks over jungle to the sea. The house is rented on a bed and breakfast basis. Mrs Ira, the manager who lives next door, is a great cook and can provide any other meals you require. She's also an ayevedic masseuse and completely reliable baby-sitter. We can arrange airport collectio...Silva Tree-house is a peaceful, secluded tree-house on the Rumasalla headland between Galle and Unawatuna Beach, on the South Coast of Sri Lanka.

We can arrange airport collections and tours for you. If there are less people our rates come down. Guest Access The house is rented as a whole. A watcher is on site at night, but otherwise you have the place completely to yourself. The Neighborhood There's no neighbor in sight of the house. You look across a valley to the tip of the Rumasalla headland and the Peace Pagoda, and then the sea. The elevated position of the house provides a cool breeze, and absolute privacy. Getting Around A walk to Jungle beach on the harbour takes 10 minutes. The walk to Unawatuna Beach, through the villages, takes 20 minutes. The house has a mobile phone with the number of a tuk tuk driver who will arrive quickly and take you to the beaches or to the Galle Fort, which is about a 10 minute drive. Other Things to Note Please note that there are stairs. And while the house is safe for children, it may not suit elderly people with mobility issues, or the parents of very active small kids.More

We had a beautiful and tiring round tour of 10 days over the island and needed some rest. Silva Treehouse is the perfect spot! Nice and quiet, lots of space for 6 people, a little breeze and sea view. And above all that very nice...More
