Welcome to Whispering House, a unique style villa 150 meters from the Goyambokka beach.
The Villa is situated on a hill slope facing a big and rich garden. Eat your meals in the terrace while hearing the waves from the sea and enjoy our swimming pool. We offer privacy since the villa has exclusively only two rooms. Each of the rooms has a comfortable queen sized bed, a roof fan, and toiletries. The villa has a spacious living room, kitchen and good wifi.

The space
Even though this is a new ad, Whispering House has been receiving guests since 2003 (you can check many of our reviews in the web). Whispering House is a wonderful Old Dutch Style Colonial Bungalow, set in secluded landscaped gardens, moments away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area with a superb private swimming pool with guest sun loungers. The house opened for guests in 2003 and Upal is eager to make new guests welcome. The main house has two double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms with each bedroom leading out on to covered terraces. There is also a separate guest pool bungalow, set just far enough away, but close enough to hire if you need three double rooms, which also has en-suite facilities and an alfresco dining terrace. The house has a large 60 ft terrace, and acts like a outdoor reception and dining room with overhead ceiling fans, overlooking the pool. There is also a huge reception room, with an open plan kitchen inside, so your holiday is very much geared up to open plan living with friends and family. Dinners can be catered for and all meals are served on your own terrace, or on the main veranda should you take the whole house.
Scattered around the house and pool bungalow are wonderful antiques and all rooms have wonderful shuttered doors, opening on to terraces and there is a certain faded glory to the whole environment, which kind of reminds you of the old colonial days. The house is designed in the traditional way, so that the sea breeze constantly flows through, making it delightfully cool, even on the hottest days, with the distant crashing of the waves, just audible. The setting is divine, surrounded by lush tropical planned gardens, plants, palm trees and flowers, which attract a multitude of wildlife including birds of paradise through to giant squirrels. The garden at the same time offers lovely shade and privacy, with no main roads or ugly vistas anywhere and is surrounded by a high wall, but security is not an issue, either in the area or at the house. Madu the night watchman is there just as an extra comforting measure and during the day Sammy the gardener is busy sweeping away. Additional Staff can be arranged at extra cost so if you want a full time cook or excellent nanny service Kusum is available, ask Upul to arrange this. This ad is to rent the whole vila plus the bungalow, if you wish to rent them individually please check the other listings. Which ever option you choose, Upal will make your stay a holiday not to forget. Upal is the Manager and he and his wife can organize anything from, laundry, private tours, airport transit, moped hire, tuk tuk collection, beverages, (alcoholic or not) right down to a traditional home cooked dinner for you, be it a delicious fish BBQ or a traditional Sri Lankan Rice and Curry with all the trimmings. All arrangements are flexible and designed to make your stay as easy as possible. Privacy is the key to the house, no staff live on site (apart from the night and day watchmen in the gate house) yet are only a moment away should you need them.
Within a four minute stroll / 150 meters you are on one of the most beautiful palm fringed beaches to relax and swim in the safest seas in the area, Goyambokka Beach with its gently sloping golden white sand and crystal clear waters and fascinating rock pools either side for the children. Along the approach road are a couple of restaurants serving good home cooked food and on the beach are numerous beach bars, which are good for lunch.
We have wifi available, air conditioned, hot water and a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge.
