About Vicky Fuller
We live in Dorset UK, but my brother was working in Sri Lanka for the Red Cross post Tsunami, when he 'discovered' the West Coast.
Vicky Fuller purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Vicky Fuller chose Kalpitiya
For us this is a brilliant opportunity to get away from it all. For the kids it is treasure Island heaven snorkelling, climbing coconut trees and marvelling at the whales and dolphins. Even in my advanced years I can still get up on the skiis - see photo 2014.
What makes this Villa unique
For us this was a chance to really immerse ourselves in Sri Lankan culture. Our greatest allies are Sisera and Indrani, who have been running Khomba for the past five years. Their energy and enthusiasm are unrivalled and fill me with happiness every time I visit. It's also quite handy that Indrani is an outstanding cook. Every day she buys the best of the days catch whether it be Tuna or mackeral (local version) she works her magic with the local spices and turns out mammoth feasts. If you want to BBQ down at the beach - nothing is too much. This has been an amazing journey for us - challenging at times, but the end result is just magical.

Surprised by the stunning reality
Suitcases are empty again, so we are safe at home. It can be quite tricky (as we are used to do now for 15 years) to rent a home so far away only from pictures and a description on the Internet. We were not disappointed, on the contrary!
First of all we would like to compliment the staff of Khomba House (as we also did in the Guest Book and by tipping). They are very discrete in their actions and behaviour, so guests have their respected privacy. Mr. Sariri does a good job as Butler/ General Manager of Khomba. Mrs. Indrani's cooking is superb. The best breakfasts, lunches and dinners we had in the three villa's we booked these weeks (and we never did not like any food served in these three weeks, so it's a compliment). The young couple also do their best to give you a *****Hotel feeling. The driver is punctual, helpful, relaxed and drives very safe!
We had high expectations of Khomba House, but we were surprised by the stunning reality. Photo's on the site could be better as reality is even more beautiful than the pictures shown. The general and specific information you send us about Khomba House, excursions, prices, etc. was very helpful. Overall idea is that we would recommend Khomba House to everybody we know who is visiting Sri Lanka. Thank you for a wonderful week in Khomba House!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write. Delighted you had such a good time. Hope to see you again.
We had an amazing time thank you! We went with the understanding that it was the windy season, so we weren’t at all disappointed by the beach.
Sisira was amazing, all the staff were. He set up two trips for us to the elephant orphanage and a lagoon tour.
The food was unbelievable!
It was my first trip away from our kids, who are 5 and 1, so I got to relax and read and sleep whenever I wanted to which was a treat in its self!
We made use of the Bar Reef pool and drank our fair share of Pina coladas! On our last day we went across to Udekki and met the very interesting Blues musician owner, who was also so accommodating and we had a drink with him.
It really was an amazing trip, our first time to Sri Lanka, and I think we will definitely be back one day.
Delighted you had a great holiday & thanks for the review.
Could not be better
Khomba Beach was one of our best trips ever. The house is amazing, the staff fantastic, the food outstanding. We were two families with three younger kids. We did sightseeing and kitesurfing near Khomba House.
Thanks for the review, delighted you had a good stay.
Fantastic stay at Khomba House
I have to say, Khomba house was the most beautiful, relaxing place we have ever stayed. And Sisera and Indrani are amazing. The food was heaven and now I am trying not to eat anything as can't fit into any of my clothes! Thanks so much for having us.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Delighted you had such a good stay
Excellent holiday home
The villa was outstanding, everything you want for a complete rest, the staff do look after you so very well. We had fresh meals cooked for us each day, which were different each time and so well presented and they tasted lovely, afternoon tea served with homemade cake yummy.
We had a couple of trips, one was to see whales and dolphins, we saw 8 sperm whales and lots and lots of dolphins, this was arranged with Sisara the villa manager who goes out of his way to make your time at the villa so memorable, the trip to the national forest, we saw elephants, and a sloath bear which is quite rare, i think we were very lucky.
Vicky the owner was easy to work with, each query dealt with promptly, highly recommended.
Many thanks for this review. Delighted you had such a great stay.
A true gem, off the beaten tracks
We've enjoyed one of the best times of our lives at Khomba House. You know that pleasant feeling when you get much (much!) more than you expected... Sisira, Indrani & staff, the house, its surroundings and the local wildlife made us feel like living in paradise.
Thank you so much for this generous review. Delighted you had such a great experience. Thanks again.
