The space at The Skipper’s Escape

Undoubtedly one of the most popular areas of SL, the South Coast has something for everyone. Our rustic villa is located in a quiet local beachside village called “Polgahamulla,” meaning ‘Coconut Corner’ in Sinhalese. Wake up to the sounds of nature and feel the vibration of the waves crashing against the cliffs as you drift off to sleep. Our stylish 2 bedroom villa is unique to Sri Lanka, taking inspiration from rustic materials that only improve with age. Compiled with authentic brass fittings and concrete flooring, the high ceilings and open glass doors complete the tranquil setting as you drift off to nature. The villa is suitable for up to 4 guests.

The Skipper’s Escape’s refreshing infinity pool accompanies the outside decking area, which makes the perfect setting for relaxing morning yoga or gazing out to the Indian ocean with a sunset drink. The rustic villa is set amongst tropical Sri Lankan jungle overflowing with coconut palms, the open setting making it the perfect place to return to after a fun day at the beach.

The stunning coastline is renowned for its pristine beaches, surf spots, cultural temples and local fishing villages.​There is a public beach down a short walking trail from the villa. You can also go surfing at the popular Hiriketiya Beach, a 10-minute drive from the villa, with its many lively cafe’s, bars etc. or head to the kid-friendly Dikwella beach.

Families, couples, and groups can enjoy the tranquility of the space all year round. Or if you’re looking for that indulgent solo getaway for some well-needed R&R, this place is the ideal location!

Guest access

You will enjoy full access to the house, kitchen, front deck, pool, and yard. There is an annex with a separate entrance which is not accessible for guests. If we use the space, we will inform the guests prior to booking.
