The villa sits right on the beach unlike most other villas in Sri Lanka so that’s already a major plus. The village is local, residential and very friendly. A great place to see the authentic Sri Lankan life and enjoy seclusion and privacy. Dutch Bay is absolutely beautiful with golden sands and turquoise waters. The centre of Trincomalee and the train and bus station are just a short Tuk Tuk ride away and there is a large air-conditioned supermarket nearby as well (10 minutes). The rainy season is different from Sri Lanka’s southern coast. You can expect the most rain to fall in November and December. Weather and sea conditions may be different from those in the photos during these months.

We stayed two nights here and really enjoyed our time. Being able to walk out directly to the beach for a swim was lovely. Trinco is full of colour and bustle, and we found lots to do for a couple of days (visiting the Hindu temple, going to Pigeon Island). The house is full of character and is clean and well equipped with a friendly local team who will make breakfast and refill the water cooler etc. The only improvement would be mosquito nets as the house is open to the elements and we got a few bites.

We enjoyed our stay there so much, that it’s hard to find words to describe it. Especially if you travel with kids it’s so much better to have your own house right at the beach rather than staying in a hotel where you are trapped in your room and have to walk past the lobby to get somewhere. Here we could jag open the door to go swimming or on the other side of the house to be in the road. We also really enjoyed being able to cook for our son, some dishes we’re just too spicy. There was even a mixer to make some fresh fruit shakes. Just a bit further down the road you can snorkel along the rocks (all the snorkeling tours stop there). We really enjoyed that too. Kasthuri came by every day to bring breakfast (8am was a bit late for us, because we get up around 6 but it was nice ti habe the option). She also did some housekeeping twice a day which we never experienced in any of the places we’ve stayed at before. We felt right at home from the start and were very sad to leave.

Great place in little paradise! When you are looking for a nice, private and less touristic, relative quiet stay in the Trinco area this is the place to be. Our family with 2 kids stayed here for our last five nights of our 3 week SL trip in july. We loved to unwind at this nicely styled and decorated private 2 airco bedroom home with lovely patio entering the beach. Well equiped kitchen, including breakfast served by Grace and the two other caretakers (diner optional). Two private sunbeds and parasol on the beach. The house is situated on the end of a local beach, a few steps away from the local fisherman. Warm welcome by Lillie, the local house manager. Next door is a Dyke restaurant and hostel with small menu. In the bay is a well organised and good Epic diving school wich also organise snorkling and dolphin watching trips. Center of Trinco ca. 15 - 20 min walk or 4 min tuktuk ride. For more touristic hustle and bustle Uppuvelli beach, bars and restaurants is 15 min tuk tuk drive (ca. 300-400 rps) away. Taxi drive to the international Colombo airport will take ca. 6 hours by car. We ”ll recommend this house to friends and family and would definitly stay again when we are in SL.
