Beautiful, Colonial Home for rent near Galle Fort, Sri Lanka
with a 50ft Swimming pool and 4 lovely bedrooms!
Hempel House is a delightful example of a period house from the colonial era! It is set around a courtyard featuring a pond with tropical fish, turtles and sweet scented frangipani tree at its center. It has been tastefully restored by the Hempel Family who have been living there for the last eleven years. It is just 10 mins from UNESCO World Heritage Galle Fort and fifteen minutes from Unawatuna and the beaches of Thalpe.
Charming is an understatement! These holiday living quarters are idyllic in every sense of the word. Surrounded by lush tropical plants and buzzing with wild life, Eduard's place is a haven in any language. Step outside the front gate and it's located in the heart a local village that gives you a real sense of the Sri Lankan culture. It's away from the popular developed tourist areas but at the same time close enough and easy to get to should you want explore those sites/destinations if you wish...... (more)

Thank you for the warm welcome and and wonderful service. A beautiful experience - a haven away from the hustle and bustle of of the streets of Sri Lanka. It was pleasure to stay with you.
Hempel House was one of the highlights of my trip to Sri Lanka. Eduard and Emma were so welcoming and made us feel so at home. This was a little oasis from the hectic streets of Galle - so relaxing and a truly magical place to just "be". The pool was so special too - a lovely way to start the day before breakfast and for cooling off after a trip into town. Eduard's housekeeper was a wonderful cook and cared for all our needs and was a delight all round. I would recommend Hempel House to anyone who has a soul and appreciates peace and tranquility.
