Little Cove really is a little slice of heaven. The setting, the nature, the people - everything was just so friendly and relaxed. Myself and my 3 small children (3,4 and 7 yrs plus nanny) stayed at Little Cove for 10 days, occupying both double bedrooms, living area and use of the lovely garden pool. Not only was the interior and setting of Little Cove (and neighboring Cove House - also managed by the same team) totally divine in itself, it really was the attentiveness and friendliness of the dedicated staff that made the difference to our holiday and one to remember. The food was prepared to the highest standards, timings flexible and always served with a smile. Wide choice to the menu should you choose to have breakfast, lunch or dinner at the house. We did breakfast for the duration of our stay, and usually evening meal too, however we ate lunch a the local beach bars for a little variety (great wood fired pizzas at Beach House). The location really is perfect, literally a 2 minute walk to the beach, which was so beautiful and clean, great for beginners surfing and also prefect for kids. My 3 and 4 yr olds spent every day jumping in the waves, with my 7 year old enjoying surf lessons and playing with other children who we met at one of the few small friendly beach bars/restaurants. And not forgetting the wildlife - we had daily visits from the local monkeys, and also saw lizards, cows, beach dogs (sometimes a bit of a pest), kingfishers, peacocks, many butterflies and even a turtle. Kali the house guard dog is a real gem, he would lead us down from the house to the beach every day, and chase off any pesky visitors (usually the monkeys or the odd stray dog). The house tuk tuk is also available should you want a driver to take you to the little village of Dikwella for any supplies. And the staff will also recommend and arrange airport transfers or advise on day trips. I would highly recommend this for families and groups of adults (even if you don't surf) who are looking for a chilled out holiday, complete with a cool sri lankan authentic vibe... We'll certainly be back!
