Sensationally situated on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, Ocean’s Edge, set in over 20 acres of private grounds, overlooks a wide swathe of tropical palm-fringed beach, near-deserted except for the turtles that swim up under the light of the moon to lay their eggs in the sand.
The villa has four spacious bedrooms, furnished wraparound verandas, a fully equipped kitchen and an air-conditioned TV Room; a glorious swimming pool offers cool respite from the heat of the day. Ocean’s Edge is fully staffed, and this exceptionally private and spacious villa suits families, groups and nature lovers looking for a tranquil, tropical base to relax and unwind.
Our stay at Oceans Edge was a truly amazing experience. The villa is exquisite and the staff exceptional in attending to our needs. Whilst the location is a little remote it was great to walk along a very long stretch of beach and hardly see anyone. As we had a driver we could still visit different villages, beaches along the coast and go turtle watching. It also allowed us to truly relax after travelling around Sri Lanka for the previous 10 days. Jennie Raphael, Australia

Absolutely perfect and staff was a pure miracle. We had the best 10 days of the year. If a bad point had to be said it is the 4 to 5 hours car transfer from Colombo airport... very long. I recommend Helicopter (but they don't fly after 5PM). Pablo D, Belgium
Villa Ocean's Edge – Tangalle 4 bedroom beachfront villa, Sri LankaElite Havens
Private, peaceful and set in picturesque grounds, Ocean’s Edge is a spectacular four-bedroom villa which, as its name suggests, sits within a whisper of the Indian Ocean on Sri Lanka’s dramatic southern coastline near Tangalle. Our villa is well located for exploring the region’s natural attractions; the rugged beaches are famed for nesting marine turtles whilst Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary, and wildlife-rich Bundala, Yala and Uda Walawe national parks, are all within reach.
Ocean’s Edge was built in 2004, however its elegant architecture and antique furnishings gracefully recount the past. Soaring ceilings, gentle archways and deep verandas wrapping around the villa on two levels mimic the iconic designs of the Dutch colonialists in Ceylon. Gentle breezes infiltrate and cool the plentiful living and dining areas, which are beautifully positioned for admiring the views.
Home to four spacious air-conditioned bedrooms, each enjoying a spectacular view of either the garden or sea, Ocean’s Edge is also equipped with a fully serviced kitchen, an air-conditioned TV Room and a T-shaped swimming pool for escaping the heat of the day. And to look after your every whim is our dedicated staff team, including a cook, two houseboys, gardeners and security.
Dancing parrots, waltzing butterflies and skydiving kingfishers animate our 23-acre garden. This idyllic seclusion is a paradise for escapists, nature lovers, groups of friends and families in search of complete rest and relaxation. With neighbouring homes few and far between in this corner of the island, the villa is entirely private and even a walk along the shell-scattered, wave-sloshed beach at sunset is unlikely to result in anybody intruding on your peace.
