About Jan and Agneta

Jan and Agneta purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Jan and Agneta chose Wadduwa
When we lived and worked in Sri Lanka in the mid 90th's we became very fond of the people and the country. Ever since, we have travelled back. Together with 3 other families we purchased land and built our own holiday home. The location was very much decided because, it is on the beach, not too far from Colombo but still on the fantastic west coast.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Ad Astra is a place for relaxing, swimming, walking / jogging and when you feel for it depart for tours to the south, to the mountains or to Colombo. Our family and grand kids loves it here and the village elephant can be asked to come to the villa for an exclusive ride!

Beautiful, spacious villa with large shared pool - right on the beach
We enjoyed seven days at this wonderful villa. It's not far from Colombo airport (about an hour), which makes it perfect from a short or long break. It's extremely clean, the rooms are large and the staff are brilliant - very friendly and helpful. The food was also great, as was the big shared pool. The best part was waking up every morning to hear the waves crash on the shore. We'll be back!
Thank you for your nice words. You are most welcomed back.

A perfect place for a family holiday with lots of privacy and excellent service!
This was our third stay at Villa Ad Astra and it felt like coming home. The service of Thilak and his staff is excellent. The house is decorated with taste and the furniture is of very good quality. The pool is huge and cleaned everyday. Furthermore the property is very safe being surrounded by a wall and having 24hr security. It is an aussum place if you are looking for a place with lots of privacy, space and very friendly staff. It is like in a hotel but 1000x better. We feel very happy to be able to spend our holidays in such a paradise. Thank you!
Thank you Nicole for your kind and nice words. Looking forward to have you back again.
With best regards
Agneta and Jan
A lovely house that is spacious, comfortable and clean. Thilak and his team were excellent, provided delicious meals and catered quietly and efficiently to our every need. The outside area and pool are equally lovely.
Galle, the tsunami museum and sea turtles are all worth visiting.
Good supermarket in the village.
There are better beaches in Sri Lanka so probably not the place if you want a beach stay but otherwise I would highly recommend this place.
Thank you for your nice words and your stay.
