“Just Beautiful. Terrific service and the food was the best.”
Reviewed 19 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We have a wonderful time at Cove House. The staff couldn't have been more caring and attentive. The Food was just amazing, a great mix of local dishes and western dishes to mix it up.
The beds and sheets were just perfect, All in all just a very well run house. The views of and proximity to the beach just cant be beat.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
Liked best: Just everything, Can't wait to go back

“The best beach experience you can taste in south”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I have been most of places from Galle to Hambantota in the Costal area of Sri Lanka. So i can confirm that this place has the most calm and the most beautiful place in down south. What ever you want from the beach, you can grab it here.

“Miss ”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My favourite place in the whole world, with the most beautiful view you will ever see. I have been to Cove house 3 times! It's a gorgeous villa, beautifully decorated and so comfortable and private. The cove house staff are so lovely and accommodating they make it feel like a home away from home - they are always there to help you with everything you need but also give you space and privacy. And the home cooked food is absolutely incredible. Special shout out to Roman the house manager who looks after the guests so well.

“Beyond Perfect - Lost for superlatives”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This place makes me want to revise my rating on everywhere else I've ever rated as I've previously given ratings of 5 for places not worthy of comparison! The beach has everything - surf in parts, protected in parts, jungle vistas on either side, fantastic staff and some of the best food we ate in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately we only had Roman looking after us for the first two days of our visit as he left for his own holiday but he was absolutely terrific. He went above and beyond what was expected in helping us to sort out some problems we'd had with a lost credit card. He was very patient and a great communicator in helping us to sort out our meal plans. As a family we rarely consider returning to the same place twice (the world is a big place!) but, if we get the opportunity we'd go back in a heartbeat. Absolute paradise!

“Stunning house set in a beautiful bay”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were lucky enough to stay in both the main Cove House, as well as in Little Cove. firstly the properties are set in the most stunning location on Hiriketiya beach, a perfect little bay that is great for surfing. The main house has 3 beds, all within the same building. 2 of the bedrooms overlook the bay, the third is has no view. the interior living is to the back of the building, but there are plenty of outdoor areas to use as well. stunning pool overlooking the ocea. chef Jay cooks up a great selection of curries and can also do western meals as well. the house is well run and kept very clean (not always the case with some of the villas we have stayed in!). The team are eager to please and happy to help. The little cove is set back in the gardens (be aware there is no sea view, but it does now have its own plunge pool) and offers 2 bedrooms. for those travelling with young children, be aware that the building itself cannot be locked, only the bedrooms which are on opposite sides of the living area. Both houses are very tastefully furnished and made for a very relaxing stay. Go and check the Beach House on the beach, good also for lunch and a drink.
