There’s never a dull moment watching the ocean. The view is further complimented with dozens of gently swaying coconut trees courtesy of the wonderful sea breeze.
The natural tropical garden features two pools (children’s and adults), and an outdoor entertainment area. A purpose-built fire pit to roast marshmallows or to simply enjoy visually. A BBQ to sizzle the fresh seafood bounty, built-in outdoor furniture, day beds, and direct access to the powder white beach and azure ocean.
Our absolute beachfront location allows one to bask under the sun and enjoy uninterrupted sunset and sunrise views. At night, as if on cue, fireflies will begin their merry dance.
All three bedrooms are air-conditioned. The two master bedrooms have super comfy King size beds, ocean views, and have a fully integrated bathroom which we call the sun-moon bathroom. This hybrid indoor/ outdoor bathroom space is a special place to enjoy your rain shower surrounded by lush tropical plants, under the stars or beautiful day light. An awe-inspiring way to greet the morning or to help unwind after a day on the beach or sights.
Each of the two master bedrooms has dressing areas, with two basins and large mirror lit ‘Hollywood style’ that will bring a big smile to any lady. Large built-in cupboards provide separation and a practical storage area for your clothes and belongings.
The third air-conditioned bedroom is a hybrid large family room/ kids sleeping area. With one very comfy single bed and ample sofa style sleeping area on our built in huge sofas for another two people. This area will comfortably sleep up to three people or in the case of kids, our guests have had up to 5 kids sleep there. It has been specially designed for kids. They love this room. It has its own separate stairwell access from the ground floor, and therefore access to separate bathroom downstairs. If you desire, this room can also directly access either of the two master bedroom bathrooms. Privacy is fully controlled with lockable doors.
It should be noted that the third bedroom/family room is complete with a TV. The bedroom enjoys stunning garden views over our entrance courtyard. We find this area a great chill-out area to watch movies with the family and as mentioned a great sleeping area for the kids at night. It is a super fun, large room with massive ceiling height.
The balcony directly outside the beach-side master bedroom suites is perfect for basking in the sun, leisurely breakfasts, sunset cocktails or indulging in your favorite reading foda. The view of the ocean is both breathtaking and expansive. The next land encountered is the Antarctic. This fully explains the crystal-clear waters you overlook.
The moment you enter the ‘big blue gate’ you will be welcomed by a quaint front yard complete with four beautiful frangipani trees. The landscaped entrance over a lotus pond complete with our resident Koi fish ‘Bill & Ben’ is complimented by our 150-year-old Jaffna antique entrance doors. These gorgeous doors open onto a lobby area featuring a signature peacock antique piece.
The typical Sri Lankan open-plan living space features high ceilings, with a kitchen, dining, and living area. The ground floor area is designed to provide a great platform for socialising. The area boasts excellent views over the swimming pool and ocean. The open design ensures excellent air movement and ventilation.
Eating in the dining area is pure joy. You are overlooking the swimming pool and oceanfront. The open show kitchen allows you to watch our cook going about his craft whilst you enjoy the peace and tranquility as the sound of the waves gently melt into your soul.
The living area sofas can be used for chilling out, reading your favorite reading material or double up as huge day beds. Lounge like a lizard.
The open dining area incorporated into the living area is adjacent to the pool. The solid-wood table can seat up to eight people comfortably.
There is a changing room, drying room, washing machine, dryer and linen cupboard. There is also a bathroom with shower.
We also have an outdoor entertainment area next to the pool. This comprises of two large outdoor sofas, fire pit, and additional seating around a coconut tree. You may even find out resident tortoise ‘Terry’, who has been living in the backyard for the past 5-years. A favorite with guests, he pretty much minds his own business but doesn’t mind attention when it comes!
Puzzle Beach House is tastefully decorated in a rich Mediterranean feel by designer Sabrina Rennie. The ambiance is warm zen-like, with a distinctly friendly atmosphere. The villa is currently staffed with a cook/ house help, and a night watchman.
There is a Golf Course within 5 minutes that is located on the picturesque Koggala Lake and a gym at the nearby 5-star Fortress Hotel. You can fish, surf, sun bake or dive right out front of the property.
Puzzle Beach House is a memorable experience for families or couples. Lots of space and a sublime direct beach-front location. It has been a terrific investment for my family who is based out of Sri Lanka. We have generated excellent returns over the past 5-years, enjoyed great holidays, and have a trustworthy manager who has run the property since it was built. If you are an overseas investor looking for healthy investment returns and a great place to also enjoy family vacations, it would be hard to top Puzzle Beach House. And as the economic outlook improves, so will the returns and capital gains of this proven jewel on the beach.
