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 (theres 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. Chamindas food is delicious, and hes a fully qualified Chef with experience of working in hotels, private villas and even a Saudi Royal Palace!

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 islands largest population of leopards - dont 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.

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.

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 guests 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).
