Guestbook comments from the owner

Cite from our Guest Book:

“We all had an amazing stay, the villa is beautiful, the gardens and pool are stunning!! We very lucky to see the village elephant one afternoon and we even had a ride on her trunk. Two families stayed and the villa was spacious enough for all of us.

Without a doubt what made our stay more special was the warmth, kindness, and help we got from Thilak...he was an absolute star.

Family from Uk and family from Singapore

“Had a wonderful stay, loved the pool, the garden, the friendly staff, the wildlife, the ocean and beach. Going back feeling relaxed and rested. Fabulous holiday.”

Family from UK living in Oman

“Our first impression was the villa surpassed by a mile what we expected - a rarity to find something better than we expected.

Twilight walks, sunsets, early morning strolls along the beach...

We have had loads of time enjoy the villa, pool and gardens...

The staff has attended us beautifully and we could not have asked for more.”

Fabulous place to stay..

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to holiday if you want to relax in beautiful surroundings and not have a care in the world. The villa is great, big rooms and really comfy, loads of seating outside and in to sit and read or just chill out with a drink. The kitchen appeared to have everything you need but to be honest Mr Thilak just does everything and anything for you so you rarely have to go in there. He is there with fresh tea when you wake, makes breakfast and is in and out throughout the day making sure you want for nothing. Then comes dinner, wow, Sri Lankan cuisine at its best. He makes awesome devilled prawns and great curries with the help of the two ladies, who needs lots of restaurants, you feel like you're in one every Evening! Our kids tried everything and loved it all but Thilak went out of his way to accomodate them, making them fried chicken & fries, fresh pancakes for breakfast & stocked up with ice cream etc when it was running low. After our safari trip our kids couldn't wait to get back to see Thilak! Sitting outside relaxing on the terrace, listening to the sea in such beautiful surroundings, next to a lovely, large pool.....heaven. if you want to travel and explore then there is lots to see, we took a trip to Yala for a jeep safari which was a great experience, seeing elephants up so close in their natural habitat is magical. Be warned though, it's a 5.30am Start! Because of this we travelled the day before and stayed over in a hotel near Yala (The rain tree) which was very nice and great value. Opul, the tuk tuk driver next door to the villa arranged everything and took us. Never had such a relaxing holiday or been so well looked after. Thank you, we will return one day as there is so much more we want to see.

Ps the weather in August was great, we had one shower in two weeks and a constant 28°, perfect...kids were really happy & safe in the pool. Added bonus the security guard & gardener were always around & made the whole holiday more relaxing as we felt so safe & secure.

Great villa, light, lots of space, personal touch

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place, managed by a pleasant crew. Four villas on a size-able plot share the swimming pool, which was fine during our stay with a British family in one of the other villas. There is direct access to the beach and the garden is well maintained and quite large. The villa has a pleasant feel to it with various couches, a big screen TV, books and magazines and even a study area! The house was clean and welcoming upon arrival. Distance to Galle Road is a 5 min walk where busses and tuk-tuks abound. Nice restaurants at a 20 min walk or short tuk tuk ride, various day trips possible to e.g. Galle or Colombo. Nearby Kalutara also has some interesting places to visit. We would definitely recommend this place to friends or relatives.

Beautiful setting, fabulous villa, perfect staffing

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful villa for 3 weeks July/aug2016. The pictures really don't do it justice....I do not normally bother to write a review once home. The chef/manager was on hand to help with anything...phone sims, advice on travel and receipes .... My husband being a keen cook intended to cook with him but was so impressed decided against.

The grounds are large and only one of the other villas was ever rented out....but the pool is plenty big enough to share tho we only shared it on a couple of occasions. The grounds are constantly being groomed and the beach(sandy) really is only through the gate.

It is a place to relax and chill and be waited on...literally. There are only a few bars in neighbouring hotels to walk to....so if you are looking for lots of night life this is not the right location. We used it as a base and did a couple of 2 day trips around the island, drivers can be arranged at a reasonable price. We also used the trains which were much quicker and cheaper to travel around.

We felt very safe all holiday and the owner was very courteous and helpful in the booking process. We would recommend this villa and country to anyone considering it.

Wonderful 1 week at the villa Ad Astra

  • 5 of 5

We were staying in the villa for 1 week, two families with 4 little kids and we enjoyed it very much!

The property has everything what you need and more. The stuff - Tilak and co, made the stay really homy and relaxing.

Tilak cooked us great dinners and made us fine breakfasts. They cared for us all the time without being pushy.

The villa and the whole property is spacious and stylish, with big swimming pool that has also a smaller pool for kids. You can relax at the pool with kids safely playing in the pool! The beach is nice, and so close that you have to speak up if you want to hear each other because the sound of the waves is so loud:)! We also rode an elephant at the beach and the kids loved it!

We didn't go out of the property much, because of the kids, but also we had everything there! Perhaps the only negative side is, that there are no nice restaurants or shopps near the villa reachable on foot.

But for the first week in Sri Lanka we really needed to relax and the villa is perfect for that! We highly recommend it for families with little kids!

3 Wochen ein kleines Stückchen Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 3 Wochen hier. Der Bewertung von Manitu können wir uneingeschränkt zustimmen. Das Team im Haus hat einen jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen.

Inbesonders unser Fahrer und Guide hat uns Land und Leute autentisch nähergebracht. In fliesendem Deutsch mit viel Wissen und Humor! Danke für die schöne Zeit.... :-)

From the Owner

When we lived and worked in Sri Lanka in the mid 90th's we became very fond of the people and the country. Ever since, we have travelled back. Together with 3 other families we purchased land and built our own holiday home. The location was very much decided because, it is on the beach, not too far from Colombo but still on the fantastic west coast.

Activity and Interests


You can walk or swim for miles in the water which keeps a temperature of 27 degrees Celsius all year round. Unbelievable sunsets and walks to arrange a lobster for the evening is at hand. It is only 2 minutes´walk to the Siddhalepha Ayurveda Hotel for ayurvedic treatments and use of the gym at a charge.


The distance from the International Airport north of Colombo to our villa south of Colombo is 70 Km. Depending on the traffic it will take between 1.5 to 2.5 hours. Our house manager will arrange airport pick up and drop.


Wadduwa is located some km north of Kalutara, where the famous Kalutara Temple is situated. The turtle reserve center is 40 minutes south of Wadduwa. The distance to Galle, (UNESCO world heritage site), which is further south, is 100 km and takes 2-3 hours depending on traffic. Colombo is 35km north of Ad Astra Villas and provide shopping, some important sightseeing venues, fine food and night life.
