This house enjoys great privacy as it sits high above a quiet and very beautiful beach; 75 steps wind down through the trees to the palm-fringed white sand. This is not a good swimming beach for young children but it is good for experienced surfers and great for walkers.

A manicured lawn and long infinity pool sit in front of the house and there is a private pavilion on the beach equipped with a barbecue.

The house is spacious, light and cool and very prettily decorated by an English owner. The double-height sitting room has big sofas and there are stunning 180-degree views of the Indian Ocean.

This is one of the more exclusive and private houses on the island, near enough to Galle and Tangalle for days out and perfect for those looking for a quiet and relaxing property set back from the main coastal road.

This is just a selection of some of the villas we represent. We are constantly on the lookout for new properties to add to our portfolio and are always delighted to look for that very special house if you haven’t found what you are looking for. Properties are available throughout the year by arrangement.

So do call, we would love to talk to you.

The waters off Mirissa are some of the best in the world to see blue whales up close, the largest animals on Earth.
