  • Benjamin's place was exactly as it seams, very nicely furnished, the perfect location and calm environment for a brief stop over in Colombo. Very arrived very late but were blown away with the surrounding view in the morning. Super friendly and helpful host, and he was very generous about our check out time and ordering tuktuks. We were also recommended a great place to eat called Mount Grill down the main street for dinner. Highly recommend.

  • Benjamin was an excellent host who was friendly and A genuine nice person !! His apartment felt very welcoming and cosy, just like home away from home. The place was clean and well looked after. Location was great, 5 minutes from the beach and many great seafood places to eat. He was more than happy to help us organise pick-ups from the airport and helped us organise A drop-off at the train station. Would highly recommend any one to stay here !! 10/10 rating !!!

  • The stay at Benjamin's place was comfortable. Someone who loves plants can really enjoy watering some tiny and sweet ones along the balcony.

    soumyaraj2015-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very nice place + the hosts were really nice too. Equipped with all the major necessities. Bathroom's sky view roof panel is a nice touch too. Will surely return if needed to!

    Buddhika2016-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Benjamin and his wife welcomed us very nicely and warmly. It was our first night in Sri Lanka and also the first experience with Airbnb. This rooftop-room is fantastic and the bathroom with its glas-ceiling is something very special. We loved the breakfast, it was a real sri lankan (Website hidden by Airbnb) tasty. All in all we recomend this place highly, and we would go there definitely again, if we're visiting Sri Lanka the next time. Thank you Benjamin for making our first night comfortable and memorable.

    Esther2015-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a great stylish place! Although we only stayed two nights while passing through, we were very comfortable. The place is clean and nicely decorated and fully equipped. Benjamin is always available and stays with his parents below so can be reached anytime. Good location south of the city center with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Don’t hesitate to book, great value for money.

    David2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay. The skyroom is tidy and modern and provides everything you need. Benjamin is a very friendly and helpful host. He gave us great hints on where to go in sri lanka. He can organise transportation and give you infos on public transportation. We can definitely reccommend him as a host!

  • Really appreciate your efforts to accommodate us at the very last minute! Clean, Safe, Convenient location for anyone interested in exploring Colombo and it's suburbs. Very comfortable and contemporary facilities provided making it totally worthwhile.

  • Olly was a great host. She had kept the apartment ready in such a short notice. Its a clean place with an amazing view from the balcony. Enjoyed the stay! Would definitely recommend Olly's place.

    Shruthi2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • house was spotless and it had nice views towards the sea. Olly was good at communication and checking in with us. It is a great place to stay if you like to stay in Colombo for a few days. You can get tuk tuks or uber rides from the main road which is literally a 2 minute walk from the flat

    Achchu2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment looks exactly like the pictures, it's in one of the newest apartments of the southern city, about 70 square meters size. The ocean view is the best part of this place. It's also very clean and quite with several good restaurants within walking distance. Supermarket is in 10 minutes walking. The host is very responsive and warmhearted, willing to give us any help we wanted. The small flaws are like the bathrooms are quite small comparatively, don't know if it's just the standard Sri Lanka size. The toilet flush is kind of weak. One of the stove is not working and the kitchen supplies can be improved. We had to buy our own hand towels and dish cleaning sponge. There is no other towels other than two bath towels in the room. And the sponge in the kitchen is too old and dirty. With the price we paid we thought these can be prepared by the owner. Overall we appreciate the opportunity of staying in this beautiful apartment for 9days and thank you Olly and your mother for the hosting.

    Jin2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was altogether a nice experience, Olly was very prompt in answering all our queries Apartment was neatly kept with splendid view,I will not hesitate to come back again :-)

    Kamalesh2017-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ocean Breeze was a great place to stay. It was spacious and very clean and offered a view of the ocean.

    Steven2016-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • A great stay. Olly is an excellent host.

    Raesung2016-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • OceanBreeze was a fantastic place to stay, we were a party of 4, 3 adults and a child. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The ocean view magnificent. Olly and her family were lovely, very helpful in every way. They gave us transfer contacts, showed us lovely restaurants and gave us advise on what to experience in Sri Lanka. If we had more time, we would of gone back for a day or two. We will return.

    Evelin2014-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Olly's place in Colombo is lovely. Exactly as shown in the pictures, it's located close enough to the city center. We were able to get taxis very easily to and from here without any trouble. Although we couldn't meet Olly personally, she ensured we had a great stay by checking in on us regularly over the phone and providing some suggestions on restaurants and places to visit. The apartment is maintained very well, and is very spacious. We were here for only one night, but we had a very comfortable stay.

Our room is beautifully arranged like a fairy tale, my husband and I had a sweet sleep. Next day morning, a wonderful breakfast is prepared, best pineapple and waffle I have ever tasted in my life. Two dogs are nice, sweet and quiet. Highly recommended, will stay there next time.

    Emily2015-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Chitrupa是一个非常友好和周到的房东,给了我很多的帮助,把我们从火车站接到家里,送我们到餐馆和SHOPPIN (Hidden by Airbnb) 等等,他的家很漂亮,也非常干净,早餐也很丰盛。他的母亲也非常的和蔼,在他家住了两晚,他们总能让客人觉得自己是很受欢迎的,谢谢你们给我这样的体验!

    Elaine2016-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my friends had a wonderful night staying in Chitrupa's house which is full of decorations from the globe and the stories of his (Website hidden by Airbnb) feels like dropping into wonderland when we could't help exploring the house.With the hospitality of Chitrupa and his family(especially the adorable dog!!),the days we spent in Colombo becomes unforgattable. Many thanks to our best host!! Strongly recommend!!

  • How beautiful the house is!and the host Mr.Chitrupa is gentleman and helpful!His mother is nice too,like my grandma。I hope to see them again when I travell to arilanke 2016。

    M Ai Ka2015-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a short, but great stay at Chitrupa´s house. It was no problem to arrive in the middle of the night and leave early morning at the same day. He organized us a driver from the airport and to the train station and on our last day as well a shuttle spontaneously! Furthermore he assisted us with all our questions before our trip, is a very welcoming host and I definitely recommend his place.

    Franziska2016-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • It's a really nice room and Chitrupa is so nice! He is the most wonderful guy I ever met in Sri Lanka! If you want to stay in Colombo for a few days, Chitrupa's place is definitely a great choice.

    捷敏2017-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • 房间太漂亮啦!感觉房间里的每一个细节都充满了故事。房东很有责任心,从我预定好、到出发前、再到入住前一天都在跟我联系确认,是否还有另外需要他帮忙的事情。房东奶奶好美丽好可爱,对待我们真的像家人一样。家里的两只狗狗和我以前养的一样,西施和马尔济斯,所以亲切感更是加倍的增加。房间非常的舒适干净。我是上升星座处女座的,老公天秤座,我俩都对Garden Guest House赞不绝口!值得推荐!

    Colombo, Provincia Occidentale, Sri Lanka

    2 room apartment facing the Sea with a few minutes walk to the beach, and around 10 minutes drive to city center. Air-conditioned and furnished, WiFi, cable TV, self catering kitchenette.
    Few minutes walk to the beach and surrounded by restaurants with home delivery service. Air conditioned with WiFi, and hot and cold rain showers. The apartment is fully furnished and designed for the light traveler. Roof top garden with 24/7 site security
    The neighborhood is a tourist area with many pubs and restaurants in close proximity
  • People, if you have get the chance to visit Colombo, do stay at Chandana's place. It is THE BEST. The location is absolutely fantastic - just a 5 minutes walk from a beautiful beach which has lots of tiny restaurants and bars to relax. Chandana will treat you like a king, will be super helpful, and his apartment is really spacious, clean, air-conditioned and to top it all it gives you access to a roof-top swimming pool from which you can watch the sunset - if you're not at the beach. So the main challenge is really to decide between the beach and the roof-top pool. The choice is yours!

    Christian2017-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Chandana and his wife kept in touch with us closely to make sure they were at the apartment when we arrived. They also checked on us after we'd settled in and, again, made sure they were there for our departure. Their service and friendly welcome was excellent and I'd happily recommend them. The location is great - midway between Fort mad Mt Lavinia and just a very short walk to the sea and the best vegetarian restaurant in Colombo. Very easy to get around via the non stop tuk-tuks. The apartment was well appointed and comfortable.

    Paul2015-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • My ladies only holiday in Sri Lanka was nothing short of amazing thanks to the hospitality we received at Chandana's lovely flat. The flat was exactly as pictured and provided all amenities we needed. Chandana was very kind to allow our stay to extend a few hours after check-out due to our very long flight back to the USA. We had a beach resort booked for mid-week and Chandana allowed us to keep our luggage at the apartment while we were away - including, taking the keys with us! We were provided with food menus and a map of the neighborhood which allowed us to explore at our leisure during our stay. The building staff was very kind - very helpful to have tuk tuk service right outside! Thank you for making our first (we would love to come again) trip to Sri Lanka memorable.

    Ashley2016-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at this apartment with my parents before travelling around Sri Lanka. The view from the main bedroom and balcony was fantastic.The nightly rate was well worth it compared to the other accommodations in the area. The apartment was clean and organised. Chandana and his wife were extremely lovely hosts. They covered everything that we needed to know upon arrival. The apartment was stocked with tea, coffee and some juices. Chandana gave us a call the next day to check if everything was going okay. He was also reachable if we had any issues. This was my first time staying at an AirBnb place and these hosts have set the bar quite high. I would definitely recommend this place, and would stay here again.

    Abi2016-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed twice during the week - 2 separate reservations. Chandana made this very easy for us!

    Ashley2016-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We were welcomed by Chandana and his wife into their apartment and they were incredibly pleasant hosts. Chandana was very responsive and available throughout our stay. The apartment is a spacious, clean and provides a comfortable night's sleep, and of course, a perfect location! Highly recommend this apartment!!

Ausserdem hat uns Arjuna eine Tour mit dem Driver/Guide Sam zusammengestellt. Sam war super. Er war stets höflich, lustig und zuvorkommend. Wenn wir wieder nach Sri Lanka kommen, dann auf jeden Fall mit Sam :)

    Philip2018-07-07T00:00:00Z

  • We had a pleasant stay at this place. The house with the neat little garden is close to the city, but at the same time very quiet. When we arrived we have been given a welcome juice and some wet towels to refresh ourselves. The host gave us very useful advices regarding the city Colombo, but also for our further journey. We had a very delicious dinner with typical food from Sri Lanka. The breakfast was also very good. The room was extremely clean and is equipped with a fan and air condition. The hosts are extremely friendly and make everything to ensure that your feeling comfortable. The hosts also speak perfect English. The hosts even drove us to the train station early in the morning. We can absolutely recommend this place and hope to come back soon.

    Barbara2016-05-03T00:00:00Z

The location is close to main sites and shopping areas. It's 11 min walk to the National museum and 20 min walk to beach road (A2) where main shops and cafes.

It's located on the ground floor. Breakfast is delicious and it is served in the patio. When I arrived I got a kind welcome from Arjuna's wife. I checked in early, so I waited in the patio and she gave me a cool ginger beer which is appreciated after a long train ride :) I later met Arjuna and his lovely daughter. You will also meet their pet dog Lily. I did my last shopping in Colomo so Arjuna's wife helped me with were to go and what to see in Colombo :) Arjuna booked for me my taxi ride to the airport and it was a pleasant way to end up my 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. I definitely recommend this lovely Airbnb in Colombo. It's very relaxing place. The host family are kind, helpful and the location is great.

  • Nethruu‘s Mutter Oshidi und ihre 2 Helfer waren hervorragende Gastgeber und zu jederzeit hilfsbereit. Sie halfen bei Taxibestellungen und Einkäufen. Einmal fuhr Oshidi sogar mit zum Kleiderkauf, empfahl Geschäfte und wartete geduldig.Das auf Wunsch gekochte Abendessen war immer mehr als reichlich und hervorragend. Die Unterkunft war eine kleine grüne Oase in Stadtnähe, wo man sogar tolle Tierbeobachtungen machen konnte.

    JörgBadConscienceBlues2018-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fern Cove Villa was a gorgeous, peaceful oasis to spend our last night in Sri Lanka. Our host was welcoming and helpful - booking our airport taxi for us and even providing a picnic breakfast because of our early departure. The pool and garden were beautiful. We loved our generous evening meal, too - accompanied by frogs, fireflies and a distant thunderstorm! We'll hopefully be back one day soon.

    Sakshi2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Fern Cove Villa was splendid! No better arrival in Sri Lanka could have been imagined. Our lovely host Oshadia and her humble gardener Shambogam made our first days on that tropical Island dream an experience we will always remember as an example of friendliness and cozyness. Upon arrival after a 10 hour night flight and 2 hour drive special care was taken that we were nurtured and nourished and felt at home instantly. The villa is very elegantly furnished, and we felt safe and at ease. Oshadia cooked marvellous huge Sri Lankan meals for us at a reasonable price, and we recommend you try her Brinjal and Alu Kehel Curries! The villa is a bit far from the "city centre" and you must count up to one hour tuktuk drive to get to Fort and the like. But Fern Cove Villa is an oasis in every sense of the word, and you'll never regret to stay there. The Villa exudes a warm atmosphere and good spirits reign the place. We would always come back.

    Jerome2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a stunning villa. It was designed by a student of the famous architect Geoffrey Bawa and often gets reviewed (amazing). The serene gardens and swimming pool helped start our trip on a great note. The courtyard is exquisite.The host Oshadhi was extremely warm and helpful. She even arranged transport for us so that we could get to Kandy. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sophia2016-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful and Oshi and Rohane are the best hosts. There were 3 adults and 3 children in our group and we all felt incredibly welcome and lucky to have found such a great introduction to Sri Lanka.

    Glenn2017-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a place in colombo, its very likely you are in transit or on Geoffrey Bawa trail, at least we were. Not that Colombo has nothing to offer, is a nice city, but would imagine sun, surf, tea , elephants is on agenda. Anycase , Fern cove villa is a nice lil getaway half an hour tuk tuk ride from action. its a perfect initiation for Srilankan ways. The home itself is charming , loads of greenery , in and out, great design features, antique furniture's , and the hosts. The Ammi of the house is what srilanka is all about, friendly people with the biggest smiles going out of their way to make you feel welcome. leaves you with the feeling that you have know each other for long. Not to forget the home keeper velu. do make it a point to have a home cooked meal and language barriers would be blurred. hopefully our paths cross again.

  • We stayed at Villa Raha for two nights at the beginning of our trip to Sri Lanka and had a wonderful experience. The room itself is fantastic and has everything you could possibly need and more. The property is very well located in a really interesting area with good options for delicious Sri Lankan food nearby and the rest of Colombo easily accessible. Imrah, Luay and their staff were lovely and always willing to help and Imrah gave us great tips about restaurants, shopping and transport. Although there was a mix up with our airport pickup, Luay was very responsive when we called him and helped our taxi driver with directions. The Sri Lankan breakfast we had is still one of the best meals we ate in Sri Lanka and the European breakfast option looked amazing as well. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B and would love to stay here again! Thank you Imrah and Luay!

  • This place is awesome even though we only stayed for several hours to catch the flight. Equipped with everything you could expect, pool, Apple TV and the friendly hosting of Luay and Imrah.

    Maggie2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Villa raha is the perfect base in Colombo. It feels just like a 5 size hotel. Everything is great quality just as the description says. Wifi is brilliant for travellers looking to upload photos etc. Will definitely return when we're next in Colombo. Thanks Imrah and Luay :)

    Issy2017-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place! Beautifully fitted out. Amazingly comfortable bed. Very quiet and with super friendly and helpful hosts. The Netflix subscription was also a nice bonus. A real oasis

    Jamie2018-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Raha is, in a word, AMAZING. We stayed in the terrace room. The space is modern and clean but also warm and comfortable. I had one of the best night's sleep of my life on the bed, there was a huge TV with every channel you could want, and complimentary snacks. There's a rainfall shower that never ran out of hot water (an issue we encountered in other places we stayed in Sri Lanka). Also, the breakfast was incredibly fresh and delicious - there were a few options but we got the pancakes, which were out of this world. Last but not least, Imrah and Luay were phenomenal hosts. They were always available, knowledgeable about the area, and gave us a number of very helpful suggestions in terms of what to see and how we should get there. The staff was also lovely. Basically, we can't say enough good things and highly recommend Villa Raha if you are headed to Colombo!!

    Joanna2017-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our room was perfect; akin to a 5 star hotel room. Our hosts went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend.

  • Zum Start unserer Sri Lanka Rundreise wollten wir uns einen Tag in Colombo erholen und haben bei Jonathan übernachtet. Weiter haben ihn zwar nicht kennen gelernt aber die Kommunikation über (Hidden by Airbnb) und airbnb war reibungslos. Wir konnten jederzeit ankommen und so wurde uns auch morgens um halb zehn schon die Tür geöffnet. Es ist ein schönes Appartement mit allem was man braucht. handtücher, kühlschrank, Küche, WLAN... Es war alles sauber, nur wegen des Klimas ist ein Geruch von Feuchtigkeit in der Luft.

    Ellen2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • It was a good start to get to know the country

    Raphael2016-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived very late at night and Jonathan directed us to his place even at that hour. Thank you! The location of the place is excellent and it is barely 50m away from the beach. The room in itself is good as well.

    Karabi2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • I spent a week in Jonathan's place. Although I didn't get to meet him personally he was very proactive and friendly. And very quick to respond some questions I had in general (my first visit to Sri Lanka). Welcoming meal was a great gesture and it was good too. Overall, the place was great, on pretty good location, and walking distance away from the main road.

  • Channa è stato un ottimo padrone di casa! All'arrivo ci accolto sua moglie anche lei molto ospitale .... La mattina siamo partiti molto presto, per questo ci hanno preparato la colazione da portare via. Lo consiglio!!

    Rebecca2018-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Channa and his family are beautiful hosts! Everything about this place is fantastic. The food is amazing and the accomodation is incredibly relaxing. A pleasurable escape from the hustle and bustle of Colombo.

    Dan2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Channa was an amazing host, stayed up late to greet us. Provided yummy breakfast and the place was very pretty and just as the pictures!

    Piyangi2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Channa's place is a nice hide-away from the busy road of Colombo. He knows what guests need and provides everything from a good lokal breakfast to some free snacks. In the fully equiped kitchen you could even cook your owne meals. The clean rooms invited us to stay longer and we felt very comfortable. Channa and his family were very nice and helpfull. The bus stand is just some minutes away and Diyatha Uyana recreation area almost round the corner. Book it!

    Nora2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful quirky escape from the hustle of the city. The house is super arty - with wonderful touches from Channa (make sure you check out all his amazing art work upstairs). Channa and his wife made the most amazing dhal for breakfasts (probably the best I've had ever!). The space is very private - has an out doors feel to it (but well protected from mosquitoes !). Definitely recommended ! Thanks

    Ellie2017-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best stays with airbnb. The place and the host were both so amazing that it's hard to describe with a review. Channa makes sure that we get everything we need and more. He exceeds our expectations. The place and the garden is heavenly. We didn't feel like we are in middle of a city. It was like we were surrounded by a rain forest. Channa gave us a delicious breakfast. Communication was perfect. We will always stay at his place. It's 5stars and plus.

    Ashi2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Channa's place. He is a lovely host who we found to be extremely courteous and helpful. Channa is an artist and the property is delightful because of his finishing touches. It was also spotless and breakfast was excellent. We definitely plan to stay there on future Colombo visits.

    Sujee2018-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Channa and his family are truly wonderful people, full of kindness and hospitality. The place is a beautiful oasis in the city. Great room and bathroom, just as advertised. I can't recommend them highly enough!!

  • Nelun is a great host even though we did not have the pleasure to meet in person. She helped us safely reach her property at 4 am (!) in the morning. The room is very spacious giving you a relaxed feel in hectic Colombo. Laqqmann help us with everything we needed. Great stay. Thanks.

    Alexandra2017-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay here. It’s secluded and quiet, but once you get your bearing, easily accessible to get anywhere by a tuk tuk picked up just down the end of the main road. The room was clean and very comfortable and had all I need. The rooftop was my favourite rest spot. And Indrani the housekeeper was most welcoming and cooks a mean omelette :) I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip to Colombo.

    Fiona2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun is a super nice host. We arrived so late at the first day and she came to show us the way to her house. The housekeeper is also very kind and he made good breakfast! The place is clean and stylish, it closes to the public transportation that you can easily get around. Overall, it’s a fabulous experience staying here! I definitively recommend this place.

    Chi2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Tropical Cube is as nice as it looks on the photographs. It's such a nice place to stay in Colombo. The room is very spacious, the bed comfortable and the open shower is very relaxing. We didn't had the chance to meet Nelun, but her staff made us feel very welcome. The breakfast is basic but good. You can take a quick dip in the tiny pool on the second floor too. If you look for a place to relax for a few days in Colombo this is the place.

    S0etkin2016-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice room congruent with the photos. Nice pool. Indrani, the house keeper, doesn’t speak very well in english but is very sweet and helpful. She cooked us a nice breakfast every morning. Tuk tuk and train station at walking distance. We recommand this place without a doubt.

    Gabrielle2017-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • De foto's tonen perfect wat een zalige plek dit is. Nelun communiceert vlot en haar huisvrouw is super lief en behulpzaam. Wij kwamen in het midden van de 'acht toe en konden reeds op het terras slapen en kregen ontbijt, dat was echt heel handig. Een echte aanrader!

    Lore2017-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Calm and peaceful environment. We can use the kitchen, pool, garden without extra cost.

    Chinthaka2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a comfortable homestay in a quiet area. We caught took to ok'd everywhere which increased accessibility but it is a distance from the town centre. The accommodation is comfortable and pleasing and we were well support by the host. Highly recommended.

When Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) was under British rule, the governor in charge during the period of 1805-11 was Sir Thomas Maitland. 2. He had acquired land at "Galkissa" (Mount Lavinia) and decided to construct a personal residence there. 3. During this time, legend has it that he fell in love with a dancing girl named Lovina who had been born to Portuguese and Sinhalese parents. 4. During construction, the governor arranged to build a secret tunnel between Lovina 's house which was located nearby, one end inside her house and the other inside his wine cellar, so that the lovers could meet in secret. 5. However, Sir Thomas Maitland left Ceylon in 1811 and settled in Malta, where he died a bachelor. 6. Some time in 1920 the tunnel was sealed up and the Gypsy village that surrounded the mansion was developed into a modern bustling city. Later, the city of "Galkissa" was renamed "Mount Lavinia", keeping her name alive.
    The beautiful mount Lavinia beach is only 40 meters away . The surrounding area is very calm, quiet and perfect for relaxation . There are Restaurants, bars, hospitals and supermarkets only five minutes away from the property.
  • Asela's beautiful home is cosy, private, cool (despite the warm temperatures outside), close to the beach, and overall a great place for a family vacation. Asela goes above and beyond with his role as a host. He is warm, kind and made a special effort to ensure that we (my parents and I) had everything we needed. He is a super host!

  • We stayed in colombo for one night, ie, 8th Dec. We were travelling from Nuwara till Colombo by train and due to unseen circumstances the train got delayed by 5 hours. Gayathri was kind enough to help us with the route, suggestions for eating food at midnight and even welcoming us at 1 AM in the night... We felt at home the moment we met her. She was warm, kind and made us feel at ease. The rooms were as described in the images, beautiful, serene and full of books. How we wished we could stay for a longer period at her place. the breakfast in the morning was delicious, the best we had in our whole trip, and the talks with gayathri were the icing on the cake. She even let us keep our luggage at her place when we decided to go around colombo. I would just say it was home away from home. Would definitely recommend Gayathri and her charming house to any one who plans to stay right at the heart of Colombo

    Abhijeet2015-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • really enjoyed our stay with gayathri - loved the non cluttered welcome from our flight and just a strong sense of 'coming home' made the whole initial trip to sri lanka feel safe and inviting. gayathri the host was also great and really nice to have had a chat with her and compare notes about whats happening in my country conerning education, race politics and others. a charming little white room indeed.

    Katharine2015-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Because my flight delayed,I missed this house,what a pity!

    Lily2015-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri was not there to let us in but one of her employees was very nice and made sure we were comfortable. The room itself was great, with a comfortable bed and a bathroom across the hall. However, we were disappointed that we did not get the room that we booked. Also, it was not made clear that Gayathri uses the floor that the rooms are on as an office for several employees, which makes the rooms less private. Overall, a good experience and good value for money.

    Mark2015-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • 房子挺好的,只是设施已经有一点旧了,去到的时候已经晚上了,因为我们还没有吃晚餐,外面下雨也不方便出去,屋主的丈夫很好的为我们炒了一个饭,味道很好,早上起来的时候感觉空气很清新,还看到窗外的树上有小松鼠,环境也挺舒服的。使用空调的需要加一千卢比,早餐还可以,有煎蛋,吐司,水果,茶,还看到屋主在锻炼身体,感觉一楼比二楼更漂亮,估计一楼应该屋主的住处。总体来说还是不错的!

    Yuanting2015-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Une chambre très très agréable et un accueil chaleureux! Je recommande pleinement cette réservation. Gayathri room is very nice, and cosy! Warm welcome with much information about Colombo. A good place and a correct price! I I highly recommend this room!

    Damien2013-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri was very welcoming and attentive to us, especially that we woke up her in the early morning when we arrived. She also let us sleep in her daughter's playroom since it was 3 or 4 am when we arrived.This was very kind of her. She really a great host and took time to know you and discuss with you as well as her husband. Her place is a great place to stay if you want to discover Colombo it's not so far from main sights and far enough from city noises.The room is lovely, well decorated and warming with places to chill out. I truly recommend her place if you want to visit Colombo.

    Florence2014-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The lovely white room was just that. Lovely peaceful and with so many great books we could have stayed in that room for a month just reading! Gayathri is a host that will do anything to help you get sorted for your journey around Sri Lanka and her staff are very helpful and attentive. ( and they cook a great breakfast too) the White room is located in a beautiful suburb of Colombo and close to main attractions. Make sure you take a walk down to Independence Square and enjoy the many wonderful restaurants. Thanks for a great start to our Sri Lankian holiday.

  • Si tratta di una stanza semplice in una bella, nuova casa, a Nugegombo, un pò fuori. Ma Jay è molto socievole e aiuta molto volentieri a organizzarti il viaggo e permanenza. Senza farti spendere molto. Nei pressi c'è un Club con piscina, dove si mangia bene.

    Prisca2015-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house and super friendly hosts. Jay arranged for a taxi, which patiently waited for us to deal with the drama of damaged and missing luggage in the middle of the night. He himself waited for us in the house and greeted us at 3 am. The next couple of days Jay offered tons of information and advice and ensured we felt at home in his home.

    Ilina & Habib2014-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jay an his wife are super friendly hosts and they helped us a lot. They waited for us when we arrived late, arranged a taxi and called tuk tuks for us. Their enthusiasm is fantastic, they have amazing stories to share and the house is stunning.

    Claudia2014-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jay and his wife make you feel the Sri Lankan hospitality within minutes!! The apartment is great, clean and very big! Around the corner from the apartment is a country club with swimming pool and lovely food. The location is different to what the map shows, it's about 60 minutes to the city centre, but very close to mount Lavinia, and the neighborhood is safe, so all good!! Thank you again!

    Dymphna2014-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • I recommed to buy at the airport SIM card for local (Website hidden by Airbnb) is possible than tuk tuk driver can't find easy Jay's adress at night.Jay will give him direction.

    Jozef2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Jays was perfect. First He took care of organising our pick-up from the airport. We arrived at the suite which is beautiful, calm and very clean. There s a great place to eat nearby, Jay will tell you where to go. He also gave us advice and very useful recommandations for our stay in Sri Lanka. He arranged for us to go to Adam s peak. Jay s place is perfectly located to take a bus or train to go south. In a word Jay and his wife are great hosts.

    Sonia2014-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Jay's suite was wonderful! He and her wife are friendly, helpful and warm. Great!

    Skye2015-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The host was very warm and helpful in giving local tips. However, we found the room smaller than expected and also the private bathroom outside the bedroom was not so convenient. Overall, had a pleasant stay.

  • Irantha's place is wonderful and big, with air conditioning in the bedrooms to keep cool, and lots of extra items provided, like a hairdryer! Irantha and his family are wonderful hosts who will take care of your every need, from making you breakfast every morning to taking you on his wonderful trips around Sri Lanka, of which we took two. In the seven days we were there, Irantha took care of everything we could ask for, driving us to a couple of events we had, organising dinner and showing us places we may not have went without him. Irantha is a wonderful hands on host and if your looking for a nice place with someone to show you so, so much of Sri Lanka, I couldn't suggestion him more!

    Samantha2018-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Iranthas place for two days and it was great. He helped us with everything we needed, picked us up at the airport for a fee, drove us around and brought us great breakfast. We were quite jetlagged so we were to tired to take advantage of his offer to show us lots of places with his nice brand new car. If you stay longer you have many nice trips to enjoy. Our two kids (1,5 & 5) really enjoyed the roof top pool, perfect kids size. Nice beach, a short car or tuktuk ride away and if you like there are bikes you can borrow. We orderd really good indian take away from a place nearby and Irantha helped us with that too. Nice clean place that we highly recommend and works great with kids!

    Maja2017-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my girlfriend stayed at Irantha's apartment for three nights. We had a great time there. First of all, the apartment was very clean, had nice furniture and it was spacious. Of course the rooftop with a plunge pool was luxurious. Secondly, the breakfast, which he brought every morning, was very good. He also made us some dinner, it was like a great restaurant, thanks to Harshi. Finally, Irantha was very friendly, helpful because we could always text him if we needed things and if we were lost our something, all in all a great host. Too bad we didn't have time for the tour I would definitely recommend this.

    Rutger2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place. It look better than the pictures which are posted. Kudos to Irantha for being such a fantastic host. He was attentive to our need throughout the stay. :)

    Rajeev2017-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Let me start by saying I typically never write reviews. I always let my wife do them as she’s great at it them and frankly, it’s easier. However this was one I wanted to write myself as it was a truly special. We booked this trip as first-timers coming to Sri Lanka. We wanted to visit the must-see sites but also experience the culture. I almost booked another place closer to the airport but in hind-sight my wife and I are so happy we stayed with Irantha and his family - TRULY a great choice! Location: Irantha stays about 45 mins south of the airport. Initially I was hesitant to have this ride after a long flight to the Island but was glad I did. Irantha and his uncle picked us up in an air-conditioned van. This was nice because not only do you get to see Colombo and its outskirts on the coast line but it is also a great location to visit many of the other must-see sights such as Galle Fort, turtle farm, river safari, tea and spice farm etc. Accommodations: Iranthas place is in Panadura, on a small, almost hidden street. Gated, the accommodations felt safe and were beautiful. It’s newly built but has many rustic elements including 100+ year old doors and furniture tastefully complimented by modern amenities such as tiled showers, air-conditioned bedrooms (a must in Sri Lanka) and WiFi internet. The place was clean, had three private balconies, a washing machine and even access to the roof top which was beautifully decorated as you see in his opening picture. Culture: If you are interested in getting to Sri Lanka and being able to see the MANY must see sights while seeing the local culture along the way - this is the place! We LOVED getting to know Sri Lanka with Irantha. It was amazing how much we were able to do in our three day stay with him. From a Galle Fort, to turtle farms to river safari to beaches to local shopping, to eating -out and eating-in - it was amazing! Irantha had even worked it out for us to go to Kandy though the jet-lag caught up to my wife and I and we used one of our days just to rest. The most impressive thing for us however were Irantha and his family. They could be around as little or as much as you wanted. Since we wanted to know the culture he really took us into being part of the family, allowing us to taste DELICIOUS cuisine. He shared with us a tasty array of different sites, foods, fruits and juices many of which are even hard to find in Sri Lanka! In one of our more relaxed mornings he asked if we wanted to come to his daughter, Vohar, badminton practice? She is one of the top rated in Sri Lanka in her age group and wow, was she good! Since the gymnasium was at a resort, we...

  • Cinnamon Apartment in Panadura is the most delightful and wonderful place to stay in. The Apartment is clean, safe, well maintained, and the area is close to a few small local shops and other interesting areas. Panadura is also a wonderful town with many interesting places to see and experience. The best and most unforgettable thing about our trip is the host ; Irantha. He is very approachable, honest, polite and very professional. Not only did he clearly advise on the routes to the places we were interested to see, but he also professionally help guide us to experience a lot of amazing local areas that you may never see in any guide book. Irantha and his family's warm hospitality were above and beyond our expectations. And through him we met and experienced the local Sri Lankan culture, traditions, heritage, food and the genuine kindness that the wonderful people have. Really Unforgettable experience! This is the absolute best way of meeting and experiencing local cultures, and Cinnamon Apartment in Panudura is now our go to place for our future trips. " Irantha, we really thank you so much for all you have done for us ! We will miss you and your family a lot, but we promise to be back soon! Thank you! Lots of love!. "

  • The place was as advertised and we loved our stay.

    Ashan2017-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was large enough to make a month long stay for 2 people comfortable. A decently stocked kitchen to cook some light meals. The overall cleanliness was good and hardly any sugar ants (my arch nemesis in the tropics lol). The wifi worked really good, but we did max it out a few times however a quick message to Osh and he fixed the issue. The ac also worked really well. The place is just a short walk (about 50 meters) from the beach, which has a lot of restaurants, but we mostly ate at the more reasonably priced ones along the main street. We enjoyed our stay in Sri Lanka!

    Vlad2018-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is the place to be, not only is is new, clean and quiet but the hosts are amazing! I had a personal incident which required police involvement and the family was incredibly helpful in taking me and translating for me when i needed help! I would highly recommend this place!

  • Fantastic location, near to the place I plan to visit & no traffic comparing to other places. Flat is nice & clean. Love the yard & colors they chose. Bed is comfortable as well. The restaurant next is good place for food but takes around 15 minuets to cook, so I took my breakfast this way: wake up- get dressed- go to place the order- shower things& get ready- breakfast in- order Uber.

It has a full kitchen, washing machine, outdoor courtyard (with a second shower), air-conditioning, nice bathroom and it is modern and clean with total privacy The location is great and it's easy to get around either by foot, bus or Tuk Tuk. Hugo and Melani are great, attentive hosts who are eager to help and offer suggestions with their local knowledge to make your trip as enjoyable as possible. Thanks for a great stay and hope to see you again next time!

    Rajiv2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were really lucky about our stay at Melanis and Hugos apartement. They told us before our arrival how we can get the easiest and cheapest way from the airport to Colombo. They are really friendly and Melani even helped us to plan our trip. She gave us really cool tips :) The apartement is very modern, the bed is cosy. All together it was a pleasant stay. The only thing it was a little bit loud. (You can hear the neighbours) But for us it was most time no problem. Also the location is very good. You can reach a lot by feet. We didn’t need public transport. To sum up… thank you for your great help! We enjoyed !

    Bettina2018-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, stylish place. The hosts were incredibly communicative and helpful and not just when it comes to our stay but to our travel logistics as well. They were literally our Sri Lanka travel “Siri”. So quick to respond and so eager to help. Location right by the lake is simply wonderful and easy to give directions for to taxis, Uber drivers, etc. Couldn’t recommend it more!

    I rent the whole place, guests need to self cheak-in/out with keys on (Website hidden by Airbnb) place is situated in suburbs of Colombo in a historical town Kotte, an ancient kingdom of Sri Lanka. the loft has been attracted by many travelers as a transit hub for who are traveling down south of the island or come to Colombo for visa extension office. Lovely place with only one entrance and small private garden. its not a luxury place. airport pickup and trasnsport can be arrged.
    While you stay at my place its easy to access Mount Lavinia and Dehiwela golden sand beaches, tuk tuk ride (less than 5 US$). Wallawatha Hindu Kovils, Colombo fort , Colombo Museum, Dutch hospital shopping center, Odel Shopping center. Etc This is a very convenient and peaceful place with a nice small garden to relax with kitchen for cooking and Supermarket in walking distance. also a washing machine and a working place with Wifi
    The region is very residential area in proximity to the Immigration office, Waters Edge Hotel, Diyawanawa Lake, Wetland park for birds watching in the morning, Kotte Museum, Kotte historical Buddhist temple "Raja Maha Vihara".
  • Very nice place

    Paul2018-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I was staying for the second and third time in this place and loved it (Website hidden by Airbnb) is a nice private space with a small garden..and has all what you need: a kitchen so if you like you can cook your own meal, a washing machine, bathroom (no warm water), and simple but good enough bed (for some people it might be a little hard...for me it was ok), and fans around the place to cool down ..;-). Some light breakfast items are there (coffee/tea, cereals and milk in the fridge) so that's a nice added service..;-) And there is wifi..The location is very quiet, down a small lane off the mainroad and around the place you find small restaurants and a big supermarket...Transportation is easy but ofcourse in Colombo the traffic can be bad..so it will take some time..but its easy to go around by tuktuk...or even by bus if you are a bit familiar with Colombo. The Maharagama busstand from where the fast express buses leave to Galle and Matara is just a 15 min tuktuk drive away...For new travellers to Sri Lanka: download the app: Pickme ...this is super handy for ordering a tuktuk for the minimum amount (it works the same as uber...)..but you need a Sri Lankan simcard for that ;-)

    Sibren2017-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • This quaint art studio was the perfect place to kick start our vacation. Both Yasiru and Dilshani were extremely sweet and helpful, despite our really early check in. They also agreed to hold on to an extra bag we were carrying at the end of a work trip, till we got back to Colombo. We loved the ambience of the place, the little kitchenette, the supplies in the kitchen - we cooked ourselves lovely little meals during our stay. The highlight of the place is the lovely private garden - it’s a perfect nook for reading, having tea or sipping on a beer. The place is a little far from the city centre, but you can beat the traffic if you plan your commute well (PickMe is a great app. Works like Uber for tuk-tuks and cabs). We felt like we were coming back home at the end of a long day.

    Ganga2017-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Yasiru's studio flat was a great asset and cozy nook during my week in Colombo. It really holds it's own energy, which was great after a day of errands or visiting places in the city. Could just come back and super relax. Communication was always clear and prompt, and his family was lovely. It's really your own place, which is wonderful after traveling awhile. While farther out from many places by the sea in Colombo, I found Uber super convenient and it was easy to get anywhere, and again, great to return to the studio after the day. Quite near the visa extension office for those that must. Highly recommended.

    Michael2017-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The price is amazing for your own place in Colombo. You’ll have the entire apartment to yourself which includes a kitchen and a nice little outdoor patio. Yasiru is very prompt with his communication, ensuring everything is set.

    Ari2017-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Nice spot to spend the night. I needed to go to the office of immigration to extend my tourist visa and this was very close, about a 200 rupee tuk tuk ride. Yasiru arranged a taxi for us from the airport and made everything super easy. There is a super market nearby and a pretty good pizza place right next door.

    Paul2017-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • It's an amazing place, very close to the city. Feels right at home with all the necessary amenities at hands reach, and a small garden to step out and get some sun. Yasiru was out of the country when we got there, but made sure everything is in place to make our stay comfortable.

    Madhu2017-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place was really great with a beautiful garden to it. It's secluded and calm. Yasiru made sure to make my stay very pleasant. All in all a great place to stay in. I recommend the home!

  • Very easy to book this room and the host was available to welcome me quite late in the evening (due to a delayed flight). The home is really nicely decorated and I enjoyed the spaciousness of the room. It's basic yet comfortable. The breezes on the third floor were lovely which meant there is no need for air-conditioning. The space is also private. However, there was NO hot water in the shower which is not mentioned in the listing. There are also lots of mosquitoes because everything is open so make sure you have repellant. The room also got a little wet when the rain came down. The kitchen is quite small and the fridge tiny - given the number of rooms listed this could seriously be improved. There was also no bottled water - only boiled water. Other places I've stayed in Colombo have offered filter/bottled water. This are not major issues and if you are planning to eat out this wouldn't be relevant. I didn't enjoy my interaction with the host. He was helpful when asked but it all seemed like it was annoying him and he offered very little information. He was also around all the time and watching which kind of creeped me out. His wife seemed lovely but she was sick during my stay so I didn't see her very much. I usually book airbnb because of the interaction with the hosts and most of the places I've stayed we have become lifelong friends. This home definitely feels more like a business.

  • Shehan e' un host esperto e accogliente. Il posto e' fuori dal centro citta' quindi più' tranquillo ma più' strada se dovete andare su e giu' da i posti centrali.

    Gianni2015-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in der Unterkunft. Es gab gut Tipps und tolle Gespräche!

    Natalie2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Shehan was very helpful in guiding us to the house, which is not too easy to (Website hidden by Airbnb) is about 7-8 km from the city center.. The house is spacious, clean and well kept. The bed was a tad smaller than a queen size bed, which made it a little uncomfortable for two to sleep on, especially as it was really hot. No good restaurants available nearby, especially if you are vegetarian.. :( Over all, good value for money. We found that our socks had been chewed up by something... a mouse maybe? so don't leave your socks outside through the night!

    Divya2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • It was comlicated for us to get to the house of Shanons family because no tuk- tuk driver really knew how to get there. We could not call there, the phone number we got was old. But after we reached the place it was almoust perferct. The room and the bathroom was very nice and Shanon was very comunicative and helped us with our questions about Colombo and Sri Lanka. Although it is far away from the city centre, you can reach it easily by bus or tuk-tuk in about half hour. We would gladly stay here again.

    Kristýna2014-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Shehan's family are great hosts. We felt at home instantaneously. His mom was of great help to give us directions on own to get here and there. Communication with Shehan before arrival was really easy. Great airbnb experience!

    Laurie2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay at shehan's place! We only stayed for one night, but it was a good start for our Journey! Shehan was really friendly and he tooked us out to go and find something to eat :) The breakfast was also really good! Thank you!

  • Abbiamo soggiornato una sola notte accolti dalla gentilissima mamma di surekha che purtroppo non abbiamo conosciuto direttamente ma con cui abbiamo parlato per telefono ed è stata molto disponibile nel fornirci consigli e indicazioni.

    Francesca2017-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very conveniently located large spacious flat close to central Colombo. It's in a safe neighbourhood with eating places an easy walking distance away. Surekha was an excellent host making us feel very welcome with suggestions of where to eat and shop. She was easily contacted, the instructions for finding were excellent and we enjoyed our conversations with her mother who lives downstairs.

    Melvin2017-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • nice and modest for the right price... will only recommend if I'm not booking!

    Ali2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We only spent one night at Surekhas, but could easily have spent more as the accommodation was very comfortable and Surekha and her family are such friendly and delightful people, and very helpful with information ,booking taxis, etc. The apartment is very clean, and well equipped, location is very good (central and safe}, so if you are going to stay in Colombo I would highly recommend this place

    Christine2018-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic host - helpful recommendations for local area. Near shops / restaurants / places of interest. Easy to get to public transport. Taxi to airport can be arranged for a hassle-free good price. Great sized apartment - clean, lovely balcony with insect proof mesh, big bedroom, decent bathroom. Would recommend!

    The apartment is situated right opposite the beach and is close to the city center, shopping malls, public transport, super markets, banks, currency exchange, restaurants, etc. You’ll love the place since it is a fully air conditioned, cozy apartment for short or long term stays, equipped with all amenities & from which you could truly enjoy the most amazing sunset & sea view. It is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids) and small groups.
    The uniqueness of the apartment is that it is right across the road from the beach. Watching the sunset from one of the rooms or the balcony is an absolute pleasure. The fact that the entire apartment is air conditioned, enables you to return to your cozy spot after a long warm day and either relax on the sofa with a chilled drink and cable TV or head over for a relaxing bubble bath.
    The neighborhood comprises of a number of restaurants, banks, grocery stores, super markets, etc and is just walking distance away to everything you need, as it is located in the heart of the city.
  • Dhanu and her husband are amazing hosts. Dhanu helped me with restaurant recommendations, tuk tuk and taxi cost estimates, and so much more. The apartment was comfortable, in a good location, and had everything we needed. I had never stayed in Bambalapitiya (Colombo 04) before and it was great to be a little bit out of the city center and right on the water! The sunset view at night was beautiful. Thank you for such an awesome stay, Dhanu!

    Sean2017-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The interaction with the Host was truly positive and the process of renting, check-in and check-out was smooth. As for the apartment he location/view is as beautiful as described but we were dissatisfied with a few items. The state of the Building and the Apartment was below our expectations. Cleanliness of the building is unacceptable with the entrance located amidst dirt and rubbish in the ground level carpark. Cleanliness of the apartment - once you get there through a dirty lift+corridor was good, everything functioned except for the A/C in the living room which was either full ON/OFF and the A/C in the bedroom which was leaking water on the floor. More importantly the sanitary installations are outdated - yes they all work including the super tiny wash-basins and the warm water + ventilation system sending the humid/smelly air from one bathroom into the other. We were positively surprised by the extensive choice of complementary snacks/soft drinks/tea/coffee/water offered but all in all we did not find this place offers full value for money. We highly appreciated the positive appearance from our hosts and wish they take this as constructive critique towards improving their apartment.

    Jakob2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Dhanu’s place is awesome! With very great see view and city view. I’m so lucky that saw dolphins in the sea from the balcony of Dhanu’s house! Also there’s nice view of sea side railway. If you worry about the noise, you can put the ear plugs on during sleeping. It’s worth to stay there. Highly recommend.

    Go back in time to the Potugesse Period with modern amenities. You will love this place as it is a 2 minute walk to the beach, you could walk to Mount Lavinia train station and it's only a half kilometre walk to the main road (Galle road).
    The entire two bedrooms are yours to enjoy
    All the neighbours are really helpful
  • 25 BY THE SEA is a perfect place for travellers who want to experience a local stay and enjoy cooking as the cooking facilities are really good. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and clean. Supermarket and shops are also within 10 min walking distance. Overall, my friend and I enjoyed our stay. Thanks Shiromi!:)

    Rachel2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Really chilled out place that is perfect for nature lovers. I am going to miss waking up to the sound of birds every morning. Amazing front yard full of squirrels, cuckoos and babblers. Shiromi was an exceptional host and a great cook as well! Highly recommend it!

    Victoria2018-06-01T00:00:00Z

All ameneties in top shape. Well ventilated. Beautiful patio with the golden rays of the setting sun in to the palm trees. I ddnt really had need to go out of the house because it was just too cozy. And this is my second stay. Hopefully not the last. Thanks you so much Shiromi, you are awesome ❤

    Manal2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and new interior! Shiromi takes care and is also a great cook. Very calm surrounding. I can recommend!

    Larissa2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Shiromi’s place suited my needs perfectly. Her place is massive and great for a family as it has a fully equipped kitchen & washing machine. My needs were simple as I simply needed a bed for a few nights. The bed is quite large, so are the rooms. WiFi is excellent... fibre She is highly communicative & responsive to messages.

    Ebs2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Shiromi and his family are fantastic hosts. They even let us check in at a very odd hour due to our flight schedule. The next morning they greeted us with a breakfast. Their house is very nice, clean and stylish, as promised on the website. They also helped us with everything, gave us all sorts of information we needed during our stay. I would recommend Shiromi's place to everyone and if we come back, definitely will stay with her.

    Gabor2017-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Shiromie is a great Host. We felt so welcome and totally at home. The house and the garden are really beautifull. The Beach is close and it was a perfect place to arrive in Sri Lanka. Totally recommended.

  • Ninels place is pretty good - maybe a little far from anything interesting but all in all a decent choice.

    Benjamin2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was perfect. Ninel and the nice lady watching her house were incredibly hospitable and warm. They were super helpful and inviting and we couldn't have asked for a better arrangement. The entire top floor was ours, clean, airy, and comfortable. We left Colombo for a few days and came back and decided to book the same place here with Ninel again because we had such a great experience the first time. Will definitely be staying here again if I return to Colombo.

    Wasim2015-02-15T00:00:00Z

    Dushyantha2017-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time I stayed here. My review is pretty much the same, copied below, and I will gladly stay here again. This is a large place for the price and having two bedrooms, a small living room and kitchen with basic cooking utensils was a great deal for the price. High pressure shower and good hot water, not something you get at every place in this part of town. Walking distance (~1 km) to the Bellanvila pansala and the walking/running track around the wetland (3 km track). Thanks Ninel for providing a good place for a great price!

  • Our stay at Frangipani was a great introduction to Colombo, and was also in a perfect location to explore the surrounding area. Harshini was a wonderful host, organising us a driver to pick us up from the airport at 11pm and helping us with our train times and lots of tips for Sri Lanka. The room was not luxury but had everything we needed for a comfortable night sleep. We stayed for two days and both days Harshini cooked us a wonderful breakfast and chatted with us about her life and our plans in Sri Lanka. Harshini is a great example of how we found Sri Lankan people to be on the rest of our trip- welcoming and kind. Arriving in a new country, with little knowledge, it was wonderful to be welcomed in this way and set the tone for the remainder of our wonderful trip! We look forward to returning there after our holiday for a last night before we fly out of Colombo.

    Rachel2016-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • I really loved my stay at Harshini's place. After 6 months travelling in India and Lanka it felt a bit like home at her apartment. The best was the cosy bed with the super comfortable mattress, a relief for my troubled back. When my man and I arrived after a tiring 9 hours busride from the other side of the island she welcomed us with a little breakfast. At all, she distinguished herself as a very friendly and helpful host, trying to read every wish from our lips. I can warmly recommand her place and will totally stay again at her place if I come back to Colombo.

    Karolina2013-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Despite a communication glitch which left us anxious about some details before our arrival, Harshini was a warm, and knowledgeable hostess who provided us with a 'home' in Colombo at the start and end of our time in Sri Lanka. She went out of her way to pay attention to our requests. Our room was clean and comfortable, the food was delicious! Thank you very much, Harshi for looking after us. Marie & Ranjit

    Ranjit2014-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our six day stay with Harshini was most pleasant. She is a most wonderful host and her only concern is to make her guests feel totally welcome. Her facilities are exactly as they are described on the airbnb website and she is totally willoing to make sure that any wish her guests may have will be attended to as soon as possible and as well if not better than you would ever expect. We are very sure that she will be totally successful in her desire to provide top class facilities at a more than fair price. Her location is excellent as it is within walking distance to most shops and all banks. Mount Lavinia beach is only five minutes away by taking a cheap tuk tuk taxi at a cost of around 150 rupees, equivalent to about A$1.20. Dehiwela is only about ten kilometers from the center of the city and public transport including what seems to be thoudands of cheap taxis are literally on the doorstep. Tourist place like Kalutara, Galle and Yala national wildlife parks are due south from here and the newly opened tollway brings these tourist attractions within much easier reach as this tollway has cut off about two hours from the journey to Galle at a cost of Rupees 500 (A$3.80 appr.). We wish Harshimi well in this venture. Peter and Yvonne Janssen

    Peter2012-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • One word - GREAT! Harshi is the best host ever! We were overwhelmed by hospitality. And the place is outstanding. It's clean, it's comfortable, and really quite. 50 m to the nearest restaurant (really cheap and tasty, ask Harshi for directions), 5 min to the supermarket and 20 min to the private beach (1000 rupies per person). I won't recommend public beach, though - dirty and a lot of beggars Next time on Sri-Lanka we'll definitely stay at this place. 5/5

    Aleksandr2013-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fabulous stay with Harshini. She is extremely helpful and helped me with planning my trip to mirissa. And her breakfast is the perfect start to the day! Would highly recommend staying with her whenever you're in Colombo.

  • Harshi many thanks for your personal care, storytelling and amazing bbq. If you, reader of my review, consider to hit Colombo please contact Harshi as she is a real Saint. We've never met a women like her, one of a kind. Space is spotless, we were kindly provided by breakfast, lunch and diner. Met the local uses of Sri Lanka thanks to her. No wonder she's a superhost. Harshi, a lot of love and health to you we hope to meet you ever again :)

  • Harshini was the perfect host. Her house was very clean and welcoming and she made me feel really welcome. One thing that perhaps wasn't so clear on the description was the set up. I didn't realise Harshini lived there too and I just had a room next to hers. It wasn't a problem though because she let me have my own space and let use her kitchen for cooking. I was able to buy food and store it in her fridge and felt comfortable using all her utensils. She even has a barbecue which I absolutely loved and used twice on her gorgeous and well maintained roof terrace. The roof terrace is fantastic and is such a beautiful spot to watch the sunset over the ocean. The room I stayed in was facing the ocean and very comfortable, one thing I would say is that it gets extremely hot despite having the fan on full power . It can be a bit unbearable, and this is coming from someone who lives in Sri Lanka. The solution is to use the A/C, however, you have to pay an extra rs.750 per day to do so which I actually think is extortionate given the price you are paying for the room. I think the A/C should be included in the room rate, and that doesn't mean adding more to the room rate! She was the perfect host and combined warm Sri Lankan hospitality with freedom and distance. One thing that I think was particularly impressive and very rare when staying in someone's house, was the fact that she gave me my own front door key so I didn't feel like I was inconveniencing her when going out and enjoying Colombo's nightlife. The location is perfect just off Galle Road, with lots of shops closeby and buses that go straight in the centre within 20mins. I would recommend her and her cosy and comfortable home to anyone.

  • Abbiamo raggiunto facilmente la casa di Dilo prendendo uno dei tanti autobus che partono dalla stazione (numero 100) e scendendo sulla strada perpendicolare. Dilo non c'era ma ci ha accolti la governante anche se siamo arrivati un poco in anticipo rispetto all'ora prevista per il check in. La camera era molto pulita così come il bagno, non c'era acqua calda ma comunque tiepida per via dell'alta temperatura esterna. Le pale sul soffitto della camera sono più che sufficienti per garantire una buona ventilazione, grazie anche alla posizione poco soleggiata e alla grande finestra. In camera c'è un utilissimo piccolo frigo, non sono invece presenti zanzariere per cui attrezzatevi con dei repellenti. C'è una comodissima fermata del bus a 50mt sulla strada principale, da cui si raggiungono facilmente in pochi minuti tutti i punti di interesse della città. A poche centinaia di metri, in direzione Mount Lavinia, c'è anche l'unico roof top con bar e piscina con spettacolare vista sul mare e quindi sul tramonto. Sempre con l'autobus, o con poche centinaia di rupie, si raggiunge facilmente anche la spiaggia verso Mount Lavinia, ideale per scappare dal traffico della città, prendere un po' di sole o cenare in un ottimo (ed economico) ristorante sulla sabbia.

  • La stanza di Dilo è molto confortevole. Pulitissima e centrale. È situata in un angolo silenzioso e tranquillo della città, ad un passo dall'oceano. Purtroppo Colombo è una città davvero molto calda ed umida ed i due ventilatori non sono sufficienti per dormire bene anche perché il letto è molto piccolo e non propriamente comodo per due persone...diciamo che il rapporto qualità prezzo risulta sicuramente corretto. Inoltre l'ospitalità di Dilo è stata eccellente. È una persona davvero molto gentile puntuale e molto collaborativa ed allo stesso tempo per nulla invadente. Consiglio il posto sicuramente, forse è adatto a chi non soffre troppo il caldo.

    Roberta2016-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Séjour de trois nuits agréable. La chambre était propre et bien décorée. Le lit un peu petit mais confortable. La salle de bain était aussi très bien. Dilo était très généreuse. Petites collations gratuites dans le mini réfrigérateur, déjeuner très bien et agréable sur la terrasse. Je fut très malade et elle me prépara un jus de lime frais qui a vraiment été apprécié. Merci

    Maude2017-05-28T00:00:00Z

    Marie2016-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo's place was ideally situated in Colombo. It was lovely and quiet despite its central location. The room was clean, safe and had everything we needed. Dilo herself was genuine, friendly and a pleasure to talk to. She organised a taxi pick up from the airport and phoned to make sure everything was OK. Dilo made us feel very comfortable and was always on the other end of the phone if we needed anything. Our privacy was always respected. We had a fabulous time with Dilo and even decided to stay for an extra night. We would definitely stay with her again when we return to Sri Lanka. Thank you so much. :)

    Jamie-Leigh2016-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo heeft ons zeer hartelijk verwelkomt. Ze hielp ons met het regelen van een goedkopere taxi vanuit de luchthaven. Ze gaf ons wat tips om te eten en een lekker ontbijt met lokaal fruit. Een perfecte plek om je reis in sri lanka te starten. Dilo laat je meteen thuis voelen en beantwoord al je vragen. Thanks Dilo! Seppe and Fien

    Fien2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo is such a wonderful Airbnb host during my first visit to Colombo. She provides all informative yet useful details in terms of type of transport, fares, recommended massage & spa center, location of hotels, grocery stores, restaurants and even the tourist spots. Her Airbnb bedroom and attached bathroom is spacious, clean and neat. The location of the homestay is strategic which is closed to Galle Main Road. It takes only 10 minutes taxi or tuk tuk ride from Dilo's homestay to the World Trade Center or Cinnamon Grand Hotel. She is friendly and very cheerful lady. She even let me leave my luggages after check out until evening as my returned flight is middle of the night. I strongly recommend my friends to book and stay at Dilo's bliss homestay during their trips to Colombo.

    Stella2016-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo is a really lovely lady who is happy to help, and we also had the pleasure of meeting her daughter. The room is better than pictured and is in a brilliant location, near to many shops, bus stops, train stations and restaurants. Dilo's breakfast was delicious too, with fruit, toast and yoghurt. We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend it! Thank you, Dilo :)

  • We loved our stay with Nelun and her wonderful Family. We were there during a particularly hot spell, but we had plenty of fans, lots of wonderful hot water and delicious breakfasts. All their suggestions for places to eat and shop were super. Thanks for welcoming us into your home!

    Jackie2016-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Super séjour dans cette belle maison très bien située. Nelun a été très accueillante et très arrangeante. Ses petits-déjeuners sont parfaits ! Nous recommandons vivement un séjour chez Nelun !

    Mathilde2015-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely peaceful oasis in bustling Colombo. The room was exactly as pictured and the shared space cool and beautiful, with a fantastic collection of original art. The breakfast was leisurely and delicious, the wifi fast and Nelun and her family friendly, helpful and interesting hosts. It was a great option for us! The only thing to note is that it can get very hot in Colombo, and the room does not have air con. Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Greer2014-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nice home and with good breakfast. We had a very clean room and bathroom. We stayed only one day so didn t have a lot of time to share.

    Marion2015-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun and Lakshman made us feel so welcome to their beautiful home. Although we arrived late in the middle of the night Nelun welcomed us and made us tea. Their home is artistically and architecturally fabulous with very cool interiors. Breakfast was also superb and set us up for the day. Thank you Nelun and Lakshman for a wonderful stay.

    Dermot And Rosemarie2015-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Although we had a bad first impression of the neighbourhood, nelun was a really nice host who cared for us. Everything was exactly as described. We arrived one day later than expected so we couldn't stay at her home But a new place really close by. She was really helpful and got up at 4 am to let us in.

    Luisa2016-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun a répondu rapidement à notre demande et nous avons pu communiquer facilement par textos. Malgré qu'elle n'était pas présente à notre venue Nelun s'est montrée disponible et sa gouvernante s'est montrée très accueillante et attentionnée. Le logement n'est pas facile à trouver, mais une fois arrivés, nous découvrons une magnifique maison originale et design dans un quertier pavillonnaire calme, parfaitement conforme à la description et aux photos. En revanche, il fait très chaud dans la chambre, un ventilateur est dipo mais très bruyant (prévoyez des boules quies) et nous avons trouvé un énorme cafard dans la salle de bain (insectophobe, passez votre chemin). En même temps c'est une maison ouverte, avec de la vie, insectes compris. Le wifi est excellent dans les parties communes et alors la cerise sur le gateau : le petit déjeuner royal ! Jus de fruit maison, thé, lait, pain, beurre, confiture, oeufs sur le plat, plat au curry épicé, fromage blanc, miel : Divin ! On se sent comme chez notre maman.

    Spacious two roomed fully furnished apartment with all amenities, one washroom with hot/cold water, shared main gate, quiet/highly secure residential area of Colombo city. Quick access to super markets/malls, transport and places of interests!
    Extremely comfortable, clean and secure with two spacious rooms. Accommodates up to 4 guests.
    The apartment is located in a highly residential area. The neighbourhood is quiet and very peaceful, away from the main road. It is located 5km away from the city.
  • Situato in una zona residenziale tranquilla a circa 20-30 minuti dal centro, facilmente raggiungibile con un tuktuk (attenzione a non farsi bidonare: non dovrebbe essere più di 400 rupie per andare al forte - il primo giorno un tuktuk ha fatto un giro lunghissimo per far alzare il tassametro fino a 1100). L'appartamento, sebbene un po' vecchio stile, è accogliente, pulito, silenzioso e spazioso, le stanze ben arredate e la cucina fornita del necessario. La famiglia abita al piano di sotto. Sono persone disponibili ma non invasive. Abbiamo trovato gli adattatori per le prese di corrente e le macchinette anti-zanzare il che per chi arriva è gradito visto il gran numero. I letti hanno zanzariere e ci sono stati forniti numerosi asciugamani. Nel bagno c'è l'acqua calda se si accende un apparecchio attaccato vicino alla finestra. Il bagno è un po' datato. L'impianto elettrico avrebbe bisogno di una sistemata, le prese di corrente si sovraccaricano facilmente (tipo se ci si attacca un asciugacapelli) e nel salotto non ho trovato (ma forse non ho cercato bene) una presa di corrente per poterci attaccare il computer o una macchinetta per le zanzare. Il wifi funziona bene. Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è buono, considerando che è un po' decentrato.

  • We enjoyed our stay at kisan's place! Although we did not get to meet him, he was quick to respond to any questions we had. His parents were very helpful, and his dad even woke up at 4am to let us in to the apartment. They were friendly and helpful when we had any questions. Definitely would recommend this place!

  • A lovely, cozy and clean home for your days in Colombo. The house matches descriptions, it is full equipped and we had everything we needed included the help of Kisan’s parents. The neighborhood is very quiet and easy to access, there was a supermarket very close. Wifi works perfect, there is hot water but no need to use it. The house does not have A/C but the fans replace it perfectly. We parked outside the house and although we did not use public transportation, you can reach a bus station a few block from the house. Overall satisfied. Thanks for hosting.

  • Amende's house was very pretty. He was available,and helped us to have the most pleasant trip! ( Advised us where to go / recommended to us restaurants and places to visit / The PickMe application for taxis which was very helpful). He also arranged for us an early check-in which was very sweet. Shameela who is also in the house hosted us very nicely :)

    Rym2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amande war ein super Gastgeber und war immer erreichbar. Das Zimmer und das Haus war sehr sauber und neu. Da unser Flug erst um Mitternacht war, durften wir noch bis 20.00 Uhr gratis in dem Zimmer bleiben. Ein super Abschluss von unserer 15- monatiger Weltreise :)

    Marc/Michèle2017-04-11T00:00:00Z

  • We spent two nights at Amande's place and had a lovely time - the house is beautiful and located out of the city and in a more residential area, which suited us perfectly. Amande and his family was very welcoming and gave us a lot of tips about what to do in Colombo. Amande's mum, Kelani, was especially accommodating when we accidentally messed up the check-in time and arrived early - she was extremely gracious and got the room ready for us anyway and made us tea while we waited. Unfortunately the outdoor shower wasn't working when we stayed there, but that would be a huge plus if it were. There is no way to enter the property without waking the house to let you in, so coming home late felt a little rude even though Kelani was very accommodating.

    Georgia2017-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Best host we could've wished for for the first few days in this wonderful country. He and his fiancé introduced us to their Colombo and it was fantastic. Also the room was very clean and everything else was as described. Really stylish and beautiful house. Thanks.

Loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. The pool was great to come home to after a hot busy day! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Very convenient location. Chef Bandara's food was amazing! Would definitely go back to this place. Highly recommended.

    Kusal2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation, perfect place to relax for a couple of days by the pool. The chef and housekeeper (Bandara) was fantastic, we enjoyed 3 days of incredible meals and he organised our tuktuks etc for us. The host Nimmi was really helpful both before and during our stay. Would hihgly recommend staying at this villa.

  • It is a lovely house, modern, spacious and well maintained. Nimmi ( the host) was quick to respond to all our queries and made us feel comfortable away from home. The caretaker cum cook, Mr Bandara cooks delicious food and was helpful. It is located a little bit in the interior, but Uber is available. Our kids enjoyed the swimming pool and had a good time. I would recommend this place for a relaxed holiday.

    Shalom2017-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Just a perfect place that’s suited for all types of parties, both families and friends. We felt it Looked even better than in the photos when we arrived! Every bedroom was comfortable and clean with each having their own bathrooms. Everything in the house worked as expected. The house is close to plenty of food options and is a cheap cab ride from the inner city. Finally, what makes Araliya more than a 5-star stay is the service of the caretaker Mr. Lalith. His cooking blew us away and that’s just one of the countless things he’s the best at. Highly recommended.

  • Nice apartment, very spacious, safe neighborhood, close to the beach. Would stay there again. However I would have wished that the bathrooms and kitchen were a little cleaner when we checked in. Attention - only 2 of the 3 bedrooms have AC units, so if you need all 3 bedrooms one is with fan only. Overall, a good stay!

  • It is worth the money. Will definetly recommend to friends.

  • If you are looking for a place that is close to everything, look no more! Dilin's place is as close to the water as you can get. You literally just cross the street and you're there. It's also a short walk to the main street where you can find restaurants and tuk tuks. I would definitely recommend Dilin's place if you are staying in Colombo.

  • This is one of the beautiful places around Colombo. The beach is very close by. Narada is a great host. He genuinely cares for the guests who are visiting the country. If you are not sure of what to do in Sri Lanka, I think Narada can be of great help. If you know what you want to do I think he would be able to help you. Just drop in to enjoy a lovely property.

  • Possible the best value Airbnb in Sri Lanka. Excellent space. Very comfortable. the hosts are very gracious and caring. Very close to major transport routes so you can get anywhere in the city and to the south quite quickly.

    TimandSharyn2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet, convenient and accessible place. Narada & Ira ensured that my stay is extremely comfortable! Big thanks to them. Their place will be my first choice for my next trips.

    Gayathri2017-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, clean mini apartment on a quietish street. Lovely hosts. Can easily get tuk tuks nearby. Getting here from central colombo during peak hour can take a while, but apart from that it was fantastic! Many thanks to the hosts!

    Simon2018-02-08T00:00:00Z

  • We had a very pleasant stay in "Home as Home". The spacious appartment with two terrasses, is very well located. Near Galle road for busses, tuk-tuks, restaurants and shops, but also walking distance from Mount Lavinia Beach. It was just what we were looking for. Benjamin and his wife are excellent hosts and provided us with good breakfasts as well. We loved our stay and absolutely recommend this house.

    Menno & Anne-Lise2015-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I really like this flat! It's got a great terrace, nice views, some lovely foliage and the bed is super comfortable. It's a great budget option crash pad for when you're busy exploring the city and you want a place that feels like home.

    Andrea2016-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay at Benjamin's. Tha apartment is exactly how it looks like: big, clean, well decorated and with everything you need to have a great stay. A big and cozy living room, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful bedroom with ensuite bathroom with hot water. 2 terraces outside to relax as well. Benjamin is a well educated and kind person. He will do everything he can in order to make you comfortable and make you feel at home! And it actually works! I did feel at home here at Benjamin's. I actually felt part of the family which is the best thing! You will have your own apartment at the second floor, so total privacy! And Benjamin's wife will also prepare for you an amazing Sri Lankan breakfast ;) the location is also perfect. In a smal and quite road 2 minutes walking from Galle road but without all the noise and chaos of Gale road so you will have incredible nights of good sleep ;))) I do reccommend Benjamin's apartment. It is a great place to stay in Mount Lavinia wether for business or pleasure. I had a great stay! Please do book here, you won't regret it! Best place in Colombo!

  • A nice place to stay

    Moditha Sanjay2018-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place looked even nicer than how it's described here. The entire 3rd floor was ours: apart from the bedroom, we had a lovely designed, cozy living room, fully equipped kitchen and huge balcony to use. Ben was friendly and helpful, and did everything he could to help with our queries. We loved the location too, which is within walking distance to the beautiful Lavinia beach. Everything was perfect, just make sure to ask for hot water because the host needs to help you switch it on!

  • 14 дней отпуска, это так мало. А все потому что хорошее время летит незаметно. Мы долго выбирали жилье на сайте, пока супруга не увидела объявление Бенжамина. И чутье ее не подвело!!! ОЧЕНЬ хорошие люди!!!! Гостеприимные и отзывчивые, милые, добрые, жизнерадостные. Нас поселили в комфортабельных апартаментах. Все было безупречно чисто и свежо, быстрый интернет, хороший кондиционер (что очень важно для этого острова) кухня со всеми принадлежностями и даже больше. У нас не было ощущения что мы в гостях. Мы были дома. Если возникал какой либо вопрос, Бенжамин ту же его решал. Даже не смотря на то что я очень плохо говорю по английский. РЕБЯТА!!!!! Если вы выбрали ШРИ-ЛАНКУ значит вам нужен только Бенжамин!!!!!!! Всем удачи!!!!!

    Sergey2015-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Home as Home. Ben is very prompt and helpful. The apartment is very well done up with an artistic touch. We found the place comfortable to stay with our toddler, although it's better designed for a couple. The apartment is very clean and practical, with a kitchenette, beautiful balcony and a room with an attached bathroom. The bed was comfortable and extra sheets and towels were provided. We specifically looked for a place to stay at Mount Lavinia and Ben's apartment was a perfect fit. Reasonably close to the busy Galle road, yet quietly nestled away from the hustle bustle. There are a lot of eateries including western fast food joints nearby. Several Tuk tuks also buzz by, so getting to and from here is not a problem. Thank you Ben and Dushy for being great hosts, hope to see you'll again!
