Welcome to Sakara House, a fully refurbished period property in South West Sri Lanka.
This beautiful four bedroom Villa is set in a large walled tropical garden full of banana plants, coconut, frangipane and mahogany trees.
A large swimming pool with play shelf for small children and seating for cocktail sipping is located next to a stylish Ambalamba for al fresco dining in the garden which is a perfect place to watch fireflies at night and the monkeys swinging through the trees during the day.
The Villa is perfectly situated to take advantage of the stunning beaches along the south coast and if surfing is your passion you couldn’t choose a better spot to stay as some of the best breaks are right on your doorstep.
“The region of Ahangama to Mirissa is 9 miles and could be called Sri Lanka’s tribute to Hawaii’s North Shore 7 mile miracle. There are a handful of fun surf spots from lefts, rights, beachies and A-frames. Amongst these breaks you’ll find spots that cater to the beginner and others that serve up waves to satiate an intermediate and even advanced surfer.” (Surf Dubai)
Sakara House caters to groups, families and individuals. Rooms are rented out all year round individually on a BnB basis. During school holidays the whole villa is available to rent. BOOK.
All rooms are en suite with very comfortable four poster beds, luxury cotton linen and mosquito nets.
We offer free WiFi, a bar service and free bicycles to explore the tranquil village of Ahangama, beautiful rice paddies and, of course, to get yourself to the beach.
A superb chef is available to prepare meals on request.
Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful space in which to spend family time this Christmas.
Thank you to the staff for welcoming us so warmly and taking care of us with such dedication. You have made our holiday so special.
Food to die for (particular favourites for me were the egg hoppers & sambal, and Sri Lankan roti and curry).
And such beautiful memories of Uncle looking after Louis (in hammock and TukTuk).
Our first trip to Sri Lanka has been enriched by our stay at Sakara House.
Everytime we turn off the main road and head up towards the house, the tranquility and peacefulness surrounds you, creating such a feeling of relaxation and calm.
A beautiful house with charming and friendly hosts and staff.
Such a great spo and we hope to return soon!!

This house and the hosts are just a dream.
We enjoyed it so much!
We stayed at Sakara House a week and could have easily stayed longer.
Carsten was a delight to deal with, professional but friendly as well Sakara House is a very cool & stylish place to stay.
The staff were easygoing & helpful at all times, going out of their way to make you feel at home.
Prabaths' cooking was second to none. The pool and garden's delightful.
We would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in style and design and hope to return again.

Beautiful private property, helpful and flexible host family, amazing chef and other staff.
Everything was wonderful, we had a great stay!
I am so glad we chose Sakara House for the last days of our trip through Sri Lanka. I call it "dream house". Beautifully decorated, really nice staff and extremely welcoming and friendly hosts.

It was an absolute joy to end our Sri Lankan adventure with a stay at Sakara House.
Our stay here in Ahangama has energised and inspired us in more ways then one.
The beauty of the interior and quietness of the garden will surely be missed. As well as the delicious food.
We look forward to returning and again resting our heads at Sakara House.
Fabulous staying at Sakara House. The house itself is beautifully furnished with a lovely garden and swimming pool. Our room was immaculate with a great outdoor bathroom. Delicious breakfast (and meals on request) Highly reccomended.
Thank you so much for a perfect holiday at Sakara House.
We have experienced so much, we don't know where to start.
The house is perfect in every way.
We love Sri Lanka, the surfing, snorkeling, beaches and the people.
Thank you for arranging our wedding. It was a perfect day.
Some day we will come back, that's for sure.

What a fabulous & welcoming family villa! =)
As a solo traveller it was so nice to be welcomed so warmly and for everything to be organised down to the smallest detail.
The decor makes the villa more than charming and I loved the outdoor shower!
Thank you both Lindsay & Carsten for being such great hosts!
Would recommend 100% . Top Notch!

Today 136 years ago Albert Einstein was born…
That has not much to do with our stay @ Sakara House though.
What a stay!
Only one night, but the feeling is just perfect. Great family, great staff and also great food.
The newest addition to the family, a dog called Rio, is also very cute.
Every aspect of the house is so nice and detailed.
We give it 9 out 10. Reason being, we must return to find the perfect score.
Good luck for your future and keep it up!
Michael & Elke (Australia)
We very much enjoyed staying at Sakara House.
We were amazed by the tasteful decoration and even started looking for some inspiration for our own homes =)
But even more than that we were delighted by the hospitality of Carsten & Lindsay and by the extraordinary cooking skills of Prabath, who seems to be an all-rounder.
Thank you for everything, we’d love to come back.
