Contact Owner

Your own tropical holiday home in paradise!
Perfect for families or parties of 6 or more people.
We also rent room only as a guest house (contact owner for availability and room only rates).


Jungleside House is located just five minutes walk from the beach at Wewelgoda just south of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, its right in the middle of the largest and most beautiful bay in the South West of Sri Lanka. The Jungle house at Hikkaduwa has its own private garden and provides you with a very comfortable base from where to enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkeling, fishing or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine!

After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax around an open fire with seafood BBQ or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see local fishermen hauling in their catch, or later on at night, a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own holiday villa in Hikkaduwa and take everything at your own pace. You can choose to visit the nearby resorts and spa's (non guests admitted at most 5 star hotels), or you my wish to take some day trips down the coast surfing, whale watching, dining, hotel hopping, shopping or visiting heritage sites like the beautiful Galle Fort (with cricket grounds). We can also organise Southern Province and Sri Lanka-wide tours (Now including Jaffna Peninsula). Tuk Tuk's taxi's and scooter hire are readily available so there is no need to walk any where if the weather is too hot.

The House (For Rent or Lease)
The house is fully 4G WiFi connected, has three spacious double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, three wet rooms (hot water showers), there are also two outdoor cold water showers on split levels, one main downstairs kitchen/diner and one 1st floor outdoor shared kitchenette on the large balcony. The ground floor has an open veranda where you can relax in the hammock. On the first floor a 18m balcony with hammocks and on the 2nd floor is a spacious yoga / gym terrace. The beautiful mature garden has many fruit plants, banana, mango, pineapple, papaya, coconut and more. Each of the beds and chairs are professionally cut and hand carved from timber grown in the garden. All of the beds and steamer chairs were deliberately made over size, and the kitchen / dining table easily seats 6, this really is indoor and outdoor relaxation at its best.

N.B. The onsite property manager can advise you on local prices, tours, taxis and sites.

Friends from Moscow, Russia Jan 2015

Very comfortable house, silent area


From Swadlincote, United Kingdom Jan 2012

Jungleside House was definately our cup of tea. It is isolated and quiet, with only animal noises, yet a very short walk from the beach and very good restaurants.
Transport is easy to anywhere, although you may have to haggle a little.
We didnt have the monkeys in the garden that others spoke about, but many birds, a monitor lizard, and the evening bat migration was always a sight to behold. Lal is very helpfull, if you have the mobile phone to get in touch with him. Also, the owner is very helpfull in arranging transport from the airport. The house has everything you need, maybe a little sparce on cooking facilities, but who needs to cook when its so reasonable to eat out? Its strong points are the many outdoor seating areas to relax and read etc.
Many thanks to Michel and Katharina.

Very spacious, well maintained and equipped. it was a real treat to watch the bats and monkeys from the roof. A simple walk to the beach and all the facilities Hikka offers. Would definitely book again ...


Chris from Cambridge

We had a wonderful month at Jungleside. We loved the house.. clean, spacious, very quiet and, with our 3 year old grandson, we spent lots of time on the roof and balconies enjoying the hammocks and watching the wildlife... pretty birdsand monkeys. The house is very relaxing. Lal is a star- really helpful and polite and always ready to come and pick you up with shopping and take you on trips. The beach is near and we spent many days by the sea and sampled nearly all the beach restaurants. The bikes were great and we had some lovely rides round the quiet lanes. Galle is close and good for a day trip on the bus or train and the little turtle farm is a nice place to take small children to. An evening boat trip on the lake was also good. We really hope to come back sometime.

A recent stay at this property in Feb was amazing, large block with a lovely big house that has all the trimmings. Great location near the beach but far enough away from Galle Rd to not hear the goings on. I would definitely recommend a stay here and I will be back for sure. -Andrew.

Jungle Side is ideally situated either to explore this beautiful country and meet the smiling gentle people, enjoy the delicious food or just relax and enjoy the Indian Ocean and the amazing beaches. and all they have to offer. Lal is always on hand to take you wherever you want to go in his tuk tuk. The house is in a quiet relaxing location but just 5 mins walk to the beach and the garden has plenty of coconut, papaya, banana trees and aloe vera plants etc. It is also fascinating to sit on the balcony or roof terrace and watch the monkeys and other wild life. There is so much to see and do and we didnt have enough time but I would love to return and this house provides an ideal base. The house is spacious, airy and cool and very well equipped. My only regret is that I couldnt stay longer.

I particularly enjoyed being in the Jungle away from the busy main Galle road. It was such a wonderful experience listening to the Jungle noises and watching troups of monkeys swinging overhead whilst relaxing on the balcony or in the walled garden. The house was cool and clean with ceiling fans throughout, sufficient to keep the rooms cool day and night. The house furnishings are a little sparce but this is more than made up for by the position of the house the beach is within easy reach, outdoor showers are a boon, and there are nearby little shops where we purchased local organic produce. A Sri-Lankan friend of the owner was on hand to taxi us in his tutut when ever we wanted, and was helpful in recommending places to visit. Overall it was a comfortable stay in a beautiful location.

An absolutely fascinating country and a beautiful house to use as a base for excursions or just generally relaxing and staying near the beach.A truly wonderful experience. We will be visiting again.

The property is in good order and every amenity in the area is easily accessible. The beaches are beautiful and the house and garden are simply wonderful. We will be going back next year.

A very beautiful and relaxing house, it is surprisingly modern, big and well made. It is cool in the day and well ventilated. I particularly loved the workmanship that has gone in to this tropical home. I would strongly reccomend JungleSide for a relaxing holiday experience.
