  • We absolutely loved our stay here! Our taxi was kindly organised from the airport to the Airbnb resulting in a seamless late night arrival. The room was cosy and cute. Further, we were cooked a nourishing breakfast when we woke the next day. Had lovely chats with the host. Highly recommend. Above and beyond.

    Daisy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice - in a quiet area. This way you get to see the greener side of Colombo.

    Jesper2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri's lovely home is in a quiet and paceful neighborhood. However the hustle and bustle of the city center is just a short tuk tuk ride away. The house itself is bright, clean and very comfortable. Gayathri was extremely helpful in giving me the confidence to navigate around Colombo, after an international flight. This was a great introduction to Colombo. Thanks so much, Gayathri!

  • Great communication and kind hospitality for a very last minute booking!

    Jamie Lynne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family were very warm and welcoming, great hospitality, they had lots of great recommendations and helpful tips on places to eat and see in Sri Lanka when asked, they give you your own space and just go about their day. They also have a lovely pet dog, lily who loves pats! But just keeps to herself if you’re not a dog person. They offer to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for a small fee, we opted for traditional Sri Lankan breakfast one morning and continental the next, it was delicious! The home was in a great location, located on a back street so was nice and quiet. Cricket Club cafe is located around the corner for more western food or Mango tree for Sri Lanka, both within walking distance from the house. Our room and bathroom were clean, wifi, A/C/ fan in room, hot water, room also a lock on the door not that we ever felt we needed to lock it! Would definitely stay here again!

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious airy and in a great location. This was the perfect place for us on our last night in Sri Lanka. Refreshments on arrival were thoughtful and gratefully received!

    Alastair2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna is a really good host and will give you the best welcome in colombo ! It was really pleasant to stay here and we will come back again for sure !

    Helschger2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Everyone in Arjuna's household is very accommodating and friendly. The location is extremely good because you can get to the city quickly and it is still very quiet (in my opinion the most relaxed area of Colombo). Breakfast at $ 5 is really sensational.

    Fabian2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family are lovely to stay with. Very hospitable and were happy to provide assistance and local tips. I would recommend the breakfast they provide each morning as it was fresh and delicious. We also loved spending time with Arjuna’s beautiful dog Lily!

  • Lovely hotel with a unique style situated in a nice area of Colombo. Everyone was very friendly, the room was nice and the beds and seating area comfortable. There Wer lots of plugs to charge all your electronic stuff. I loved that they handed out lots of infos for exploring Colombo. Unfortunately we've spent only 1 night there and had neither time to use the pool nor eat at the cafe. So next time we will stay longer for sure. Thanks for the great stay.

  • What an amazing place, I feeled so loved. And amazing hospitality and food. If you are very “ pool people” then maybe the huge hotel is better. Have been stayed in Colombo in those huge hotels but I wount anymore and will stay @ Raha Villa deffinetly. Villa is not in centre-centre but still very close. And as most of tuk tuks are metered now to drive around is very affordable. Thank you our dear hosts and have a very merry Christmas!

  • Imran’s hospitality was one of my most memorable experiences of my stay in Colombo. He gave us insights into great places to eat, always offered to assist with anything we needed. His beautiful family were so welcoming, rooms were amazing with great facilities such as an outdoor swimming pool.

  • Overall, it’s okay, just started to see the hostess and her three nannies, a little scared, and our driver said that there is no problem, you can stay, very safe, because we are two girls. After checking in, I found that I was really satisfied. The breakfast was very rich. The house was beautiful. They were some photos and collectibles. When I left, one of the nannies took the initiative to ask us for a tip, although I didn’t give it because I There is no extra money on hand. This is a matter of opinion, but it does affect my good mood, but I like the hostess very much and shared photos of her trip with her.

  • The host grandmother received us, everyone in the room was warm and hospitable, the house had the feeling of home, refined and clean, like a paradise. Everyone arranged a car and a series of questions for us. It was very thoughtful, the breakfast was delicious, the two dogs were very cute, and there was a naughty kitten. In short, recommend it here.

    子月2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The warm bed and breakfast, the breakfast is as good as everyone said, and I have not eaten enough for two days. The garden can be seen in both rooms on the second floor, where you can see squirrels and many crows, as well as beautiful flowers. The homestay can be located on the google map without worrying about finding it. We used the hotel's chartered bus to and from the airport. Although it was a little expensive, it was convenient. After going out to the main road, there are a lot of sudden cars in the house. They are not going to detour according to the rules. You can find a lot of phone cards when you turn right on the main road. The owner of the home is very kind and always accompanied by a laugh.

    2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful house, very good old lady, chat with you for breakfast. The only downside is that there are only two servants in the family when I go. I can only understand some basic words. There is a slight obstacle in communication. But the service is not said, but then, isn’t it that airbnb wants it?

  • A really stunning place beautifully decorated with lush garden and pool.. fab stay thank you

    Tim2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • No words can describe our experience. It exceeded all our expectations. We are seasoned travellers but never had such a fantastic experience. This will be truly hard to beat. Everything was absolutely perfect, from beautiful decor to tranquillity of the garden. There is nothing better than a hot fragrant milky and sugary tea in the garden beside the pool after a busy day in Colombo. And if this isn't enough, you can get pampered with local food by a chef on site. We truly recommend to arrange your food in the Villa. We were spoilt for choice and it all tasted fantastic. It is also reasonably priced. Our first day in Colombo we dined in the centre of Colombo and went for an upmarket restaurant. The food prepared by the chef in the Villa was much better than the one we had in the centre of Colombo. The Villa is located 30 - 45 min tuk tuk drive from the centre of Colombo and is very clean. It is well looked after by two staff members on site and by Oshi Mama - a jewell in the crown. She gives the place the homely feel. When you cross the main door you feel you returned home after a long spell of being away. Oshi Mama we love you!

    Marcin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We would totally recommend this place to all because its a huge , nice n artistic house at a good location. The host Oshi is a very kind n humble woman who always went out of the way to make us feel special , also we made good friends with the couple from Germany who were on their 5th visit to the house n u can guess about the great hospitality already. Even the care takers of the house wre very polite n took great care of us n cooked very good food too . One cn book this place without 2nd thoughts 👌🏻

  • We liked our first two days in Sri Lanka in Nethruus’ house very much. Nice Hide away from busy Colombo!

    Maylan2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house, excellent hosts! Highly recommended!

    Lech2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • On the evening of our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Nethruu's mom, her husband, and the staff. For us it was the perfect start for our trip through Sri Lanka. The accommodation is tucked away about an hour away from Colombo (by taxi / Uber). In the morning we could choose between typical Seidonesian breakfast or European. We chose the first one and it was delicious. Nethruu's mom gave us the tip for dinner, to go to a small food stand not far from the place where she even walked with us. She and the locals were so hospitable, she drove off for us and organized beer, and spontaneously a tuk tuk driver who took us to the next supermarket. We would choose again and again, for the small hidden jungle, perfect to arrive !!

    Romina2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hosts, amazing food and overall excellent property! Quite enjoyed the stay at this beautiful home, simply book this if you plan to go to Colombo! Hospitality by Nethruu's parents was awesome and heart warming. Great experience!

    Sachin2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This home is simply a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Colombo. The common areas and pool are beautifully designed. The food, our dinners and breakfast, prepared by Chamin and Indi were excellent - some of the best curries we tasted in Sri Lanka. The hosts Oshi and Rohan were so friendly and very thoughtful and provided us with help in getting transport around and arranging onward taxi to Sigiriya. The bathrooms and bedrooms we had (adjoining bedrooms) were very basic and perhaps this is the only area I would suggest some updating. We would recommend Fern Cove to anyone wishing a quiet place to stay when visiting Colombo.

  • Amazing spot with all the amenities needed for a night or a few weeks. It was so nice to be able to cook some dinner for ourselves after so long on the move. Thank you!

    Cortni2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • After doing a thorough research by screening reviews, we went ahead and booked this stay facilitated by Benjamin. Benjamin is extremely professional and helpful in his approach. The stay was completely hassle free and with constant checks from him, on our personal commute and travel around the city; we got all the help that we desired from him as a host. The room was impeccably clean and all amenities were provided as expected. A souvenir from him on our way out attested the fact that he was an exceptional in his approach of treating guests, making them feel at home while being miles away from the same. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Sri Lanka.

  • Very nice, clean and cozy place to stay. Benjamin is very kind, friendly and helpful with everything and communication beforehand is very fast and reliable. The terrace is amazing, the place is quiet and safe (in a dead-end-street), ideal for relaxing from the busy city of Colombo. Mount Lavinia beach is in walking distance and also the Mount Lavinia Hotel. Really enjoyed my stay and would definitely book it again.

    Annette2019-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Benjamin is a wonderful person, caring and friendly. Due to the previous guest falling ill I was unable to stay in his property but he arranged and covered the expenses of alternate accommodation for me. His caring attitude towards his sick guest and myself are a credit to him and anyone would be lucky to stay with him. 5star hospitality!

    Teija2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • First and foremost Benjamin is a wonderful host! His passion to share his place with travelers shines through when you interact with him. The place was quaint and in a safe spot of the city. The decor coordinates with the world outside. During my stay it quickly became my safe haven. A place to cool down, make food, and relax. The city around has everything you could want/need within walking distance. Walking can be a bit scary with all the cars, but you get the hang out it after crossing a few times. The beach is a must go!!! Restaurants all along the coast. It is breathtaking. If you’re into photography talk to Benjamin about arranging a shoot. He is very talented!

    Brittany2019-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Benjamins appartment is a super cozy place. We enjoyed our last days there, not far from the beach. Benjamin responded really quick and answered all our questions. Recommended!

  • Chandi’s place was very nice. The rooftop pool was great, and she was very responsive. I would highly recommend this place. There is, however, no soap to wash dishes or any toiletries of any kind. Just something to keep in mind, but the space is an amazing value.

    Carl2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Olga2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are very neatly decorated and can be seen very carefully. Below is the beach. There is a small train passing by, but there is no noise when sleeping at night. Visual inspection has a large bed 2m wide, a large bed about 1.5m, and a sofa bed. There is a swimming pool and gym upstairs, but the pool is a bit dirty and does not go down. Overall a great stay.

    汐月2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very spacious, modern and clean with balconies overlooking the beach. The rooftop terrace is lovely although it doesn’t have umbrellas so it’s better to use it in the afternoon. Clean Sheets and towels were brought to the apartment every three days by extremely professional and polite staff. There are trains that run between the apartment and the beach and you have to cross the tracks but somehow that’s all part of the charm of living like a local.

  • It's a great location right by Galle Road on the Dehiwala-Mt.Lavinia border, making trips towards downtown Colombo easier. The space itself is a bedroom along with a small pantry and bathroom - making it a perfect suite for an extended stay. I appreciated that everything had been well thought out, and that plenty of pantry items and a small-fridge was provided, as well as the cleanliness. Missaka was quite helpful and attentive. All in all, it was a great stay. I would highly recommend this listing.

Amazing amenities, and very speedy hosts who looked after us very well. Would definitely recommend this apartment to all who want somewhere special to impress their fellow travellers.

  • Simply perfect! Accomodation and hospitality exceeded all my expectations. All similar to the pictures. Very clean and quiet. And the sunset is amazing! The apartment is located close to shops, banks and beach, is fully furnished and has all accessories that makes a stay comfortable. The host is very friendly and always reacting promptly to any kind of questions. I personally appreciated the presence of security guys 24/7 who also were quite helpful in many ways - besides that, it gaves a good and safe feeling, living in that beautiful property. I enjoyed the stay very much and for sure will come back one day. I can only recommend the whole package (owner, accomodation, location) and am glad having chosen this paradise. Thank you.

    Eva2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is the closest apartment to the seaside where you can see a small train. You can see the sea when you lie in the room, facing the sea, and listening to the waves. I really enjoy it. The room is very clean. There are two rooms and the kitchen is fully equipped. You can buy your own food and cook. There are basically no tourists here. It feels like enjoying the entire beach, not too far from Colombo. Uber is 600RS. The next time I plan to take my family on vacation, stay for a week.

  • Delon hosted us at his apartment during our trip in Sri Lanka. We were lucky to have spent the night there considering its high demand. What I valued the most was the customer service from the security guard all the way to Delon himself. Check in instructions were clear and Delon was always readily available to message through Airbnb. All the necessary cooking anemities are there if you want to cook your own meal as opposed to eating outside. The apartment is close to the Dehiwala Arpico for all your cooking essentials. There are a range of restaurants a walking distance from the apartment as well. And it's right by the beach which makes for quite a special dining experience. The apartment is nicely furnished and very stylish. All the rooms are equipped with their own AC systems and have great views. I had the chance to use both the swimming pool facilities and the gym facilities. The gym was modest but had everything I needed to complete a workout. The swimming pool had been cleaned and was perfect for the hot summers day. Overall staying at Delons Airbnb provided myself and my 3 guests a place for us to call our 'home' for the night. If you're in need of accommodation in Sri Lanka definitely give this apartment a look see, you wont be disappointed.

  • Delon ia great host, responding very fast and answering all the questions. Place is clean, conviniently located near the beach (this part of the beach is nice and clean). We used train to get into Colombo (fast, cheap, reliable). You can find in the walking distance all needed shops, for example bakery (with really european-like baguettes!) and Cargill's with Wine Shop. This was last stop before going to the airport, we took Uber Premier - 2391 LKR with highway toll. No surprises with that. Check in and check out is through security in the building so it's 24/7. :)

    Arkadiusz2019-11-28T00:00:00Z

  • Great place to stay, easy to get around Colombo. So close to the beach and beach bar/restaurants which meant taxis weren’t necessary....heaven! Swimming pool on rooftop was nice after a hard day working. Riad and Jennifer went above and beyond to make our stay amazing, booking train tickets, organising transfers and even a ride to the station when our booked ride failed to show. Amazing hosts! One niggle only, but really didn’t inconvenience us, but could be a future improvement would be an additional amount of crockery, glassware and cutlery and mixing bowls. However rated stay as 5*

    Nicola2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay at this beautiful apartment which is very close to the beach and many seaside restaurants. The location is very convenient and the apartment is cozy and well organized.

  • Narada and Ira are the sweetest couple and their place is adorable! Great location, very safe, cute space

    Alixandra2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Narada and Ira’s place for about 25 days. This was a home away from home. Very cozy, comfortable and clean and safe. Within walking distance to Galle Road and the ocean. Both Narada and Ira were friendly, kind and hospitable. My host had kept bread, butter, jam, eggs etc in the fridge so I did not have to look for food immediately after arriving as coming from Canada was a long journey. I was also blessed me with food a few times. Thank you both for your generosity and hospitality. I would not hesitate to recommend this excellent Airb&b accommodation to any future travelers.

    Hiroma2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying at Narada and Ira's house, they gave me all the information and amenities (including an iron!) for my brief stay in Dehiwela that I needed and the location so close to Galle Rd - allowing you to make it to central Colombo in around 20-30 mins in off peak times is ideal, I highly recommend for anyone wanting to come see the nation's capital.

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.
  • My family and I (four adults) ended our 3-week visit to Sri Lanka IN STYLE by spending 2 nights at Asela’s Home Away From Home. Asela's beautiful home is cosy, clean, and spacious – a welcome oasis of peacefulness close enough to but also far enough away from the frenetic pace of Colombo. It’s an open concept, 3-storey space, with a full washroom on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This was great for us, since we were 4 adults; we all felt we had our own private space! The large kitchen is well-equipped, where everything you need is available. We opted for the fans only, which was ok, because we spent most of the day outside, either at the beach (a 2-minute walk away) or on the idyllic rooftop terrace, surrounded by beautiful tropical plants. A 10-minute walk through the streets will bring you to Galle Road, where you’ll find “Family Supermarket” or “Cargill’s Food City” (this is where you can buy alcohol). There are many restaurants on Galle Road, but we opted to eat at the beach restaurants (they are a bit more expensive), where we could be dazzled by the sunset and listen to the waves of the Indian Ocean lapping (or roaring) onto the shoreline. If you want to go into Colombo, the Mount Lavinia railway station is a short, 10- to 15-minute walk away, close to the famous, colonial Mount Lavinia Hotel. The train ride is beautiful, as it travels along the ocean, and is definitely worth the trip. Home Away from Home is a fantastic place for a family vacation. Asela goes above and beyond as a super host. He is warm and kind, and his hospitality comes from the heart. He was in constant communication with us (available 24/7) to make sure we had everything we needed and even booked our taxi to the airport. He is a wonderful ambassador for his country, and we feel blessed to have met him. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit!

    Pam2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks again Asela. Everything was great. Our second stay was just as good as the first stay. After spending 5 days at one of the Blue Ocean flats it was very nice to return to Asela’s place, which was much cleaner.

    Mark2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A nice place very near to the beach. Asela is a great host and was always quick to help out/respond to any questions.

  • The host was super nice, contact me a few days in advance, in order to prepare a delicious snack for us ~

    2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • 1. The location is very good, very close to the beach, the nearby beach is very beautiful, the area is very quiet, it is very convenient to go to the train station, there is a supermarket nearby. 2. The landlord prepared a delicious snack to welcome us. 3. The house is clean and tidy, and the father of the homeowner or the homeowner needs to be there at any time. 4. The kitchen utensils are very complete and it is the most satisfying kitchen in our trip. 5. There is a small garden balcony on the third floor. Our four are very satisfied with this accommodation.

  • Mahendra is one of the best host we ever met. The house was in the prime location about 100 MTs from Mt Lavinia beach at the same time away from all the rush. The house had all the required amenities and all of them were set thoughtfully. This makes our stay great as we had our 6 months old baby with us. The only thing missing was a grinder/mixer to make some food for the baby. The request was put on and he delivered the mixer on the next day. Mahendra was available in a ring away and all the help was delivered. I don't think we could get a better place with all the requirements and it was the best value for money. Will surely come back to him whenever we visit Srilanka again. All the supermarkets, laundry shops, restaurants are with in easy reach. Well recommended. Regards, Aravind.

    Aravind2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat. It's a phenomenal value, very clean, had everything you can possibly need got all extended stay in Colombo.

We even cooked our breakfast, the kitchen was fine with the things needed. Then the morning coffee could be enjoyed on the balcony. We enjoyed the lovely pool on the roof. Where there was also a nice view of Colombo. We can only recommend this apartment.

    Lone2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

There's a good sized rooftop pool which we used all the time and never seemed busy. The location was great for Colombo and Mount Lavinia beaches and the building has a convenient supermarket. There's also banks, ATMs and a post office within minutes. We were well looked after and the host was quick to respond to our questions.

Everything you need is there or they will provide you when you ask for it. Specially the kitchen things. Thank you very much for accomodating us. We'll see you next time on our visit in Colombo.

  • Deenesha was very friendly and helpful host. The apartment is great. There is everything you need. The shop in same building is very handy! If you want to travel around, the location is exellent. There is railwaystation and bus stop and many tuk-tuks in front of the building. View from the balcony is very nice! There is no services on the beach in front of the building. You need to walk about 10 minutes towards Mount Lavinia if you want drinks etc. The gym wasn´t in use.

    Heli2019-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very comfortable apartment in a good location to explore Colombo and beyond. All amenities and communications with the hosts were great. Only downside is large construction next door that seems to be going on 7-days a week. No trouble at night but some noise during the day.

    Lukasz2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful apartment with a fantastic view of the ocean from the deck. The hosts were really top notch in terms with responsiveness and offered special touches like tea/coffee and toothbrush/paste. There were plenty of linens and towels. The location was super convenient especially with a supermarket, cafe and ATM on the first floor. Easy to catch a tuk-tuk since right next to train station. Only downside was noise level with construction going on the next building, trains running immediately below and traffic. With our jet lag and running about, we still slept well enough. Thanks so much for a pleasant “home base” from which to visit with family!

    Munni2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Super friendly host and available: she accompanied us to the bus station and organized our trip. She waited for us despite our delay! thank you Ninel! Spotlessly clean and compliant house. Little wifi problem that did not work. House with garden flowers but in a very uninteresting and decentralized neighborhood.

    Valeria2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ninel accompanied us to the bus for our trip and she helped us organize it .. She was very accomodating not report to our galley on arrival at the places. Really a person on whom to count. The apartment was clean with a kitchen. The wifi did not work alas. Only downside it is very periferie and far from the center, in a neighborhood where shop spare parts of cars ... For the rest I advice!

    Valeria2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night in Ninel’s place before flying out. The communication was easy to follow, even when she wasn’t home for the check in, she messaged me to let me know thar her maid is in. Her house was big and suitable for a family or a group of 5. Kitchen had all the facilities that you need, but we didn’t use it. The AC for the room was a bonus and you just need to pay as much as you use the electricity which makes sense. I recommend her place to anyone visiting Sri Lanka!

    Maryam2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived much earlier and Ninel did our best for our comfortable early check in. We stayed just for one night. everything matches the photo, but a bit far from the center of colombo.

    Юлия2019-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ninel waa an amazing host. everything is exactly as described. I didn't plan much before coming and Ninel helped me plan my last 10 days. it was absolutely amazing meeting Ninel and I would recommend anybody who is visiting colombo to stay at her place. thank you so much for hosting us and helping us.

    Raheel2019-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Ninel’s place was an impressive and sweet memory for me and my son. We stayed for 3 nights as our final destination of our 15-day long trip in Sri Lanka. If you are looking for a casual & cozy place, to keep yourself closer into the local life, just as a stay over at your auntie or nanny’s house — it would be a great choice. Ninel put some efforts on the interior decoration, and I like the colours of fabric and cushions pretty much — everything in harmony. It may take a bit time ( 20-30 minutes ) to get to city centre and some nice cafes, but we felt it’s not a issue for slow-pace travellers.

    Sophie2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ninel was a gracious host. We travelled with a 7 month old baby and Ninel and her maid Chandra made sure we were all well taken care of and gave us all the support they could when we were busy with the little one. Was so grateful we picked her place! Absolutely recommend her place to anyone and even more so if you are a family traveling with kids. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay Ninel and I hope we were not too troublesome for you!

    Facing to main road. Sri Lanka's no 1 suppermarket next to the Appartment .(K Supper) management by KEELS supper. Very closer to hotel areas and sea. Easy to catch tuk tuk as well as uber Weekend vegetable and fruit market close by. Calm and convenience neighbourhood.
    900 square feet s. Unique pantry design.
    Foreign neighbourhood in the appartment. Calm surrounding area.
  • Roshan’s apartment was just as described. Everything was clean and new. We had wonderful private time at his roof top swimming pool! Roshan and an assistant was there whenever we needed anything. We recommend Roshan’s place to anyone since it worth the money we paid! Improvable areas: 1) Kitchen could be utilized with basic stuff like tea, coffee,sugar etc. 2) No water filter or anything so you have to use pipe born water to drink or buy your own water. Better to have drinking water filter. Notes : There was separate water and electricity bills which we had to pay at the end of the stay for the units used which we hadn’t seen in any of the airbnbs we have stayed in before. But he has “clearly mentioned” about this and bills were local prices so it was reasonable and he shared before and after meter readings. Nothing to complain. There was a security deposit of 100$ which u will get back when u leave.

  • Nice clean apartment. Everything was in order. Lovely rooftop pool with panoramic city views. One point - cooking was problematic, because in the kitchen-living room there is no hood over the stove and there is no air conditioning. Nice clean apartment. Everything was fine. Beautiful rooftop pool with panoramic views of the city. One note-cooking was problematic, because in the kitchen-living room there is no hood over the stove and no air conditioning.

    Vitaly2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • First: please be aware, that the nice host offers a basic rate. You have to add the costs for electricity and water. We, a family of four, stayed for 3 nights and used the two AC in the night to cool the sleeping rooms a bit down, took showers and did the wash up. All in all it was 1.200 Rs. Second: The flat is cool, nicely furnished, beds are clean and mattresses new. The housekeeper takes care all day and night. Third: the pool is great! We often traveled to Sri Lanka and a pool in the first night is great. The flat is about 25-35 minutes to Galle Face Green by Tuktuk (11km). Street isn’t too noisy. Recommended!

    Wolfgang2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful Space, easy access, car parking, secure location, very clean and more then what was expected. the Host are wonderful and they are very helpful. the building and units are highly recommended for any person as the location is very good and privacy at a very high level.

  • Beach Lavinia's was a treasure of a find. From the perfect location (beach view, quite ambiance) , the amenities(cable tv,fast wifi and etc) provided, the refreshing pool on the rooftop. Host (and Ramesh) was always available and special thanks to Ramesh for being so hospitable and professional. You can you app like 'Pickme' to order you a ride. its the fastest and cheapest way to get across town. Would love to stay at the place again on my visit to the beautiful city of Colombo.

    Husain2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Chinn's apartment from June to July for a month. It is a beautiful apartment in a great location. Everything you need is close by. The beach is less than 5 minutes away and there is also a beach view from the balcony as well. There is a pool on the rooftop which basically was like a private pool for us because no one else used it. The apartment is very modern and comes with really good appliances. It has everything necessary for long term stays. There is no key to enter into the apartment instead its a passcode you enter in a door lock, which we first felt a little apprehensive and worried about who else might know the passcode and after a brief explanation to Chinn, he right away worked with us and allowed us to key in a new passcode which only we knew. That was really nice of him and it actually was extremely convenient not to have to carry a key around when we left the apartment. Chinn was always readily available to communicate with us for anything we needed. Chinn's assistant Ramesh who lives near by helped us whenever we needed him. He was very nice and promptly attended to anything we needed. The building is very secure, theres a security guard 24/7 and a caretaker there during the day. The apartment was very clean when we received it and we left it very clean as well. We loved our stay at Beach Lavinia and we will definitely come back again. Thank you Chinn for a great accommodation!

    Victor2019-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent room in a nice quiet part of the city with a really nice family. The room was huge, as was with the bathroom, very clean, just a short walk to both the beach and the main road. The outdoor space was great too.

    Daniel2019-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Arriving at Chandanas family house, made us feel home immediately. Located in a more ‘quiet’ local area, walking distance from the local beach. A great stay to get to know Colombo and yet get some peace at Mount Lavinia.

    Annabel2019-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Since the beginning we felt like our own home at Chandana’s place. Although it’s located at Mt. Lavinia, maybe a little out of town, the neighborhood is very calm, perfect for a peacuful rest and very well communicated with Fort, Pettah...using train or bus. We would definitely repeat with him

    Ignacio2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, enormous bed, best mattress ever, great quiet sleep after long flight!

    Julia2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Chandana and his wife were warm and endearing hosts. Their place is a peaceful oasis in bustling Colombo. I awoke to the lush greenery around and sweet sound of chirping birds. The room is big and airy, with a really large bed. Thanks for everything!

    My bungalow is once of the closest to the beach and is a bungalow with verandah, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. There are 3 such bungalows and I have listed 2 bungalows as Bungalow 1 and Bungalow 2. They are in the same garden but each, is its own private unit. Bungalow 1 has a larger garden space but otherwise all bungalows are the same
    Each bungalow has its own little fully equipped kitchenette, with refridgerator, cooker, saucepans, cutlery and crockery so you can cook your own meals. Breakfast can be provided at an extra $4 per person. You can sit in your verandah and enjoy the garden and the birds undisturbed. You are welcome to do a little gardening if you like. The season for the west coast of Sri Lanka starts mid October and goes through end April. The sea is calm and best in February/March but be prepared fro a scattered showers. . From May to October it is monsoon time and the sea is rough and it will rain. The bungalows are walking distance to super markets, banks and shops. The Mount Lavinia railway station is a 5 minute tuk tuk ride. You can walk across to the hotel next door and use there pool at Rs.500.00 per person. It is set in a nice garden. You are always welcome to contact me and ask any questions regarding your stay or even your travel plans in Sri Lanka.
    This is a busy rsidental neighborhood but you have the privacy of the garden. Mornings till 7.30 is very busy because of the school as well as when schools close. It is safe but take the same precautions as you would in any town.
  • The cottage is great in a very nice garden, next to the beach. Very nice staff, everything perfect.

    Fabienne2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, 2 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes by taxi from downtown Colombo. The yard is dreamy with fireflies at night

  • We really enjoyed staying at Janitha’s place. At our arrival people were very welcoming and supportive with advise. The room as nice and clean plus we really loved the breakfast!

    Leonie2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Cottage Garden Bungalows. The outstanding hospitality shown us by Janitha and Ranjith was unforgettable. The bungalows are comfortable and well appointed, set in a beautiful garden which is home to birds, squirrels butterflies and tortoises. We loved sitting on our little verandah sipping a drink and watching the wildlife. The bungalows are 100 metres to the lovely beach and we swam there on a couple of occassions and also used the pool at the neighbouring hotel (for a small fee) there are plenty of restaurants close by and the train station is a 10 minute walk and it is then 20slr to Colombo. We loved our stay and recommend it whole heartedly we will be back!

    Ruth2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful place which is close to the mt.lavinia beach. I really like the place cuz it has full privacy and each cottage has some distance. Also its rare to see some plants nowadays bcoz of each places getting moderate but Janitha place has some flowers and plants which is i saw my childhood time at my grandma place and it makes my mind go 20 years back . And its a very clean place to stay relax and enjoy. Special thanks to Janitha and Ranjith to give a joyful experience. Overall im so happy to stay a place like this and looking forward to come back when i come to Sri Lanka.

    Chamara2019-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Janitha's place was beautiful. We had a lovely time at her place. Janitha as well as the caretaker Ranjith were very kind and extremely hospitable.

    Jaai2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Janitha’s place was absolutely perfect for our trip to Colombo. It’s located 2 seconds from the beach, Mount Lavinia hotel and a really sweet turtle sanctuary is a short walk away. The room was lovely - we were greeted by Ranjit who was really helpful and welcoming. There was breakfast food in the little kitchen and the bed was huge. Janitha herself was lovely and even took the time to come with us to Colombo and give us a little tour which was so kind and we appreciated it so much. Highly recommended!

    Rosanna2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice host, Janitha and Ranjit who take care of the homes are very happy. He was like a small plot of land that had suddenly been inside the home and made the bed and washed when you were away. Very high service! Located less than 1min walk to the beach. Just a lot of mosquitoes during our stay were not so much in the yard, but if you have children it probably had the top.

    Nugegoda, Western Province, Sri Lanka

    Your oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of Colombo A relaxing getaway with ample space for the whole family City location, country feel. A ten mt tuk tuk ride away from the iconic Mt Lavinia Hotel and a 'Golden Mile' of tourist beach
    The house is my old home, and has a rustic charm being one of a few examples left of the 50's 'Art Deco' style in Sri Lanka. It has French Windows which let in lots of light and air into the living spaces. It's colourful handwoven furnishings are from the looms of well known Colombo designer Barbara Sansoni who runs the gallery chain 'Barefoot'. Expect to have the company of colourful birds in the large leafy garden, adding to a truly authentic Sri Lankan experience, We generally give out the whole property on each booking. We have one large and two smaller bedrooms, which can be configured according to your sleeping requirements. Living areas have overhead fans and the main bedroom has air conditioning. There are presently 6 beds and a spare mattress and we will be flexible about accommodating larger groups if required. We are also ultra flexible about check in and check out times.
    OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD Mt Lavinia is a tranquil suburb of Colombo and is home to the stately Mt Lavinia Hotel,overlooking a 'golden mile' of sunny tourist beach. A 2 km walk from our house, the Hotel, a former Colonial Governor's Residence, is well worth a visit. It has a 200 yr old history of hosting celebrity guests from all over the world. The 'Governor's Restaurant' serves a magnificent Sri Lankan buffet breakfast and dinner. You could try a colonial style High Tea on the Terrace with spectacular views over the ocean at sunset, or experience a candlelit dinner on the beach at the 'Seafood Cove'. Fringing the beach are other restaurants and bars with a laid back ambience especially inviting at nightfall. From Lavinia House it's a 20mt walk/7mt tuk tuk ride to the beach and the bustling shopping street, Galle Road. It's a short trip to the next suburb Dehiwela, which houses the National Zoo, noteworthy for it's performing elephant troupe. 10 mts stroll down Templers Rd will get you an exquisite massage at the Siddhaleppa Ayurvedic Hospital. Further inland takes you to rustic lanes that meander through the Attidiya wetlands, where you will see paddy fields, birds and aquatic wildlife. In the vicinity are two very exotic and influential Buddhist temples, the Bellanwila Raja Maha Vihara , which is a hive of activity and spectacular displays on the nights of the full moon each month and the Paramma Dhamma Chetiya Pirivena which has been the seat of Buddhist Education for over a century. WHY LAVINIA? Our house name Lavinia House honours the lowly gypsy lady Lovina whose beauty so enthralled a former British governor of Ceylon it led him to name the city of Mt Lavinia after her. Sir Thomas Maitland built his palatial residence next to her gypsy encampment on the cliffs and had her brought to him each night, through a secret tunnel, for the 7 yrs of his governance. That mansion is now the iconic Mt Lavinia hotel overlooking the best tourist beach in Colombo.
  • This house is quiet spacious and very pristine. It also has a tranquil vibe. You will have many amenities to make your stay an enjoyable one. Five stars all the way!

    Robin2019-11-08T00:00:00Z

The tuk tuk stand was right down the street and the bus stop which made it easy for us to get to places and we were very close to the Mt Lavinia beach. We all had a great time. Thanks Michele!!!

  • My stay at this apartment was amazing. The sea view during the sunset is just wonderful and totally worth it for the money. All the facilities mentioned were available and Samadhi kept on a consistent check with me if everything was okay. The apartment was super clean and overall I had a great experience. Looking forward to visit here again.

  • We loved our stay, the whole place was so tastefully done - true to its name (colonial style). The balcony was a really cute corner with a nice view of the beach. Overall, a great experience!

  • Muaadh’s place is located few steps away from Dehiwala beach . The roof top swimming pool was nice , one can see beautiful sunset from the pool . The apartment was spacious with all facilities for self catering . The view from apartment was amazing as it’s on top floor . You can have a view of colombo city and the blue ocean!!! It’s quiet refreshing. We stayed for 1 week and would have stayed more but unfortunately the place was already booked . We cooked all our meals in the kitchen, without any hassle . One thing is the apartment is on the top floor , so it gets pretty hot during daytime , and there is no AC installed in the living room area . So need to adjust accordingly.

  • The apartment is very strategically located - on the cusp of Wellawatta and Dehiwala- near to great restaurants such as Shanmuga's and Barracuda, within walking distance to the busy Galle Road. Easy to locate on Uber app and google map. The apartment itself is nice with great view of the ocean from 9th floor. A swimming pool is available on the roof top. A suggestion - if the host arranges for housekeeping on alternate days, it would be of great help.

  • Excellent 3-room apartment 20 minutes from the center of the capital. Also suitable for long stays with a company of 6 people. The only thing is that the daytime Internet is limited and electricity is not included in the price, this may be a problem for some travelers. The view from the window, the pool and 24-hour security are a huge plus. Next time, we will also stay with this owner after arriving in Colombo.
