Siri Wedamadura is no expense spared restoration of a traditional Sri Lankan residence set in five acres of grounds in the beach resort of Mirissa only moments from the beach, restaurants and the fisheries harbour. This beautifully furnished four-bedroom home is an oasis of tranquility in the bustling village and sleeps eight comfortably. Each bedroom is an air-conditioned en suite with breath-taking tropical garden views.
Siri Wedamadura’s four garden-view air conditioned bedrooms are situated across two floors. Each features either a double or two single four-poster beds draped in soft mosquito netting, a wardrobe and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with rain shower. Two bedrooms – a double and a twin – open from the ground floor living room whilst a further two twin bedrooms are accessed off the landing on the first floor. A rear staircase from the dining veranda leads to this upper floor.
The living and dining areas are all situated on the ground floor. At the front of the house is a deep garden-view veranda scattered with rattan chairs, which leads straight into a beanbag-furnished living room illuminated by a skylight. Beyond the living room is a spacious, open-sided dining veranda elegantly furnished with a dining table for 10 overlooking the exotic foliage of the leafy back garden. Just off this dining area is a fully equipped kitchen finished in smooth grey cement.
The house features a 20m lap pool, comfortable indoor and outdoor living areas, a well-equipped kitchen and an open air dining area facing a lovely and intimate garden. Complimentary WiFi is offered throughout. The house is fully serviced with a housekeeper, chef, gardener, and pool boy. A car and driver are available upon request.
The garden is a very special place. The top half of the property has fabulous views over Mirissa fishing harbour and Weligama bay. It makes it a great place to meditate or to exercise. We also have a beautiful hillside yoga shala. If you look carefully you can find a coffee bush, Kaffir lime, curry bush, mango, cashew and Jackfruit trees. In the early morning and late afternoon monkeys come to play and peacocks to dance. Look closely in the ponds and you will see small fish and tadpoles, and maybe even a turtle.
Around evening, fruit bats start to fly. They look just like batman flying overhead, but are perfectly harmless. At night the garden wakes up, with frogs making such a racket down by the pond that it’s hard to hear yourself think down there! Any of the gardeners would be happy to show you around.
