Take a look inside Halala Kanda House

Built in 1912 by a rich plantation owner’s son to woo the love of his life, Halala Kanda House or Firefly Hill is now a luxe estate with years of history thriving within its walls. Abandoned and rundown until restored to its former glory, the estate speaks to colonial Sri Lankan architecture with sprawling gardens, all-white architecture with columns, and a gorgeous pool. Halala Kanda House is located near the southern coast, close to the historical city of Galle. It is a six-bedroom country home fit for a family with children.


Whether you want to visit local antique markets to find the thing you are looking for or explore the rice paddies and plantation nearby, there is so much to do around Halala Kanda House. The city of Galle with its historic 17th-century Dutch Fort is only 30 minutes away. If you head to Weligama beach at dusk, you can observe local fishermen on stilts going about their daily business. Long walks, surfing, and exploring other beaches like Mirissa are some of the many activities you can enjoy around Halala Kanda House.
