Villa Footprints pictures and description

A rustic, individual holiday home in beautiful Sri Lanka offering stunning views of the Indian Ocean and nearby Dalawella beach, Villa Footprints is the quintessential home away from home with vibrant colours dominating each space, lush green gardens outdoors, a private swimming pool, a ubiquitous calm, as well as sprawling views. With five bedrooms, the villa is perfectly suited for larger gatherings, especially if you’re travelling for a birthday or a private event. Close to the historical city of Galle and other areas along the coast of Sri Lanka, there is so much to do here you will never get bored!

The villa is ideally on Dalawella beach and close to Mihiripenna beach, providing full access to the beautiful coastline of Sri Lanka. There is the city of Galle, teeming with Dutch architecture, and the famous Galle Fort which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is another spot travellers flock to.

9.8/10 (Average rating based on 6 reviews)

As a villaphile I loved this villa. The Indian ocean waves rolled in all week. The staff were delightful and food was very authentic and tremedous value. We dragged ourselves out to WB Italian one night (a must) but the food at home was perfect. The location is perfect with Galle, Unawatuna, Marrisa all nearby. WE went to a yoga class had a local cutthroat razor shave and generally had a perfect break

I stayed at Footprints Villa two summers ago and had an absolutely outstanding visit. This December, I came back to Footprints with my son and stayed at the villa for four nights. It was like coming home. Keerthi and Latha prepared wonderfully fresh and authentic Sri Lankan food, including delicious seafood right from the sea.When we inquired about where to purchase some Sri Lankan spics, Keerthi told us he would take care of it and a day later, he brought us an assortment of spices neatly packaged and coconut spoons made in Unawatuna. This was only one example of the amazing service both members of the staff provided us during our stay. The accommodations were just as clean, comfortable, and colorful as they were during our first stay. The water in the tide pool near the house was as warm as bath water. We also took another short trip to the beautifully quaint Galle Fort which is just a ten minute ride from the villa. Overall, we were so grateful to come back to Footprints and experience the same standard of hospitality, cleanness, and care. Hopefully, we will be back some day for a third stay at our favorite beach get-away in Sri Lanka! (and next time we are going to stay a full week!)

A large, spacious villa, tastefully built and decorated on a prime piece of land. The villa has direct access to a small patch of beach which is washed out when the tide comes in. However, from here, a 2 minute stroll on the sand will take you to a large rock pool where swimming for children is very safe. A further 10mins of walking will get you to an unspoilt coast line at Dalwella. Unawatuna is 5 minutes away in a tuk tuk.

This is one of the most beautiful beach villas that I have come across. This coupled with Mr. Keerthi, the caretaker, made our stay even better. 14 of us stayed their for one of our friends' bachelors, and we made the right choice by staying here. We made the booking through AirBnB and from the moment we entered the place, we realized that we could not have chosen any better place. Excellent service!

I wholeheartedly recommend this place, we had a great 2 months there! We were a big group of students who lived there. We experienced a friendly staff, good food, good location and the house itself was amazing

Keerthi, Latha and Lahiru were excellent. The food made was all too our taste, delicious and I think very authentic. We had a birthday of one of our group on the last day and they made a special breakfast for us including baking a cake. Nothing was too much for these guys, even helping arrange tuk-tuks, activities and accommodated any request.
