Take a look inside Little Cove House

Little Cove House is located within the Cove House luxury properties complex. The unique and secluded property is separated from the main house and can be booked separately if you’re coming with a small party of 2 - 4 people as the house offers 2 bedrooms that can sleep up to 4.

Little Cove is a stunning example of Sri Lankan architecture and design, with hand-selected antique doors and windows and terrazzo flooring throughout.

In the tropical paradise on Sri Lanka's southern coast, Cove House Retreat represents the pinnacle of luxury vacation rentals. A typical activity during your stay at Little Cove House will be immersing yourself in the serenity of nature or snorkeling by the beach as the property is just steps away from the beach.

All of the bedrooms in the house have air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

The picturesque Dickwella Bay can be seen from Cove House, which is perched on top of a hill. The journey from Colombo's international airport will take roughly four hours. Take a seaplane from Colombo to Mawella Lagoon, which is only 15 minutes away from Cove House, to avoid the traffic. If you're traveling from the coast to the highlands, we offer reasonable rates on a daily seaplane between Koggala and Hatton.

This is really a calm oasis imbedded in greenery! We felt at home from the beginning and Katy also upgraded us for one night to the main house which magnificent and quite frankly one of the nicest places I ever stayed at. More than the house and environment Katy is super nice to communicate with and her staff is lovely and will take amazing care of you and cook you delicious meals if you so wish - and trust me you will want that!!

We loved staying at Little Cove. We spent two weeks here in late April with our four young children and had a fantastic holiday. The set up was perfect for us - a stones throw from Hiriketiya Beach where we spent all day everyday. The breakfast and dinners at Little Cove (prepared by their friendly team) were delicious and made to our liking. Dinners were honestly SO good. We would have eaten there every night, but also wanted to head out and try different spots in Hiriketiya. The beds were comfortable. The rooms are large. The staff was so helpful and kind. Wifi was a bit slow at times but it’s not the fastest in many places in SL I think. And honestly, it felt quite nice only jumping on wifi twice a day and otherwise being disconnected. Overall, we would really recommend Cove House and can’t wait to come back.

This place was absolutely delightful and a real treat for the eyes thanks to it’s beautiful interior design and the location. Our stay at Katy place was wonderful and an exclusive way to enjoy this part of Sri Lanka. We also took fully advantage of the menu on offer cooked by Jayantha : the food was simply delicious. Finally Danesh, his brother Aranda and Pacy were there to assist us with everything and their unique hospitality contributed to make our stay so special. A unique place in Sri Lanka I highly recommend !
