Very comfortable stay.”

The place is like a typical Sri Lankan home. Funny, my room opens into the garden and I forgot a few nights to look the door. Nothing happened. Then I share the room with a big fat cat. There is also a turtle crawling about. Staying here is just what I needed after a long time of impersonal and automated environments that is so proudly called "modern". Yes, a great stay. Also close to the beach and bus services to Colombo.

A pleasant stay”

It was a very pleasant stay. I had a nice room with all the freedom that I needed. There is a fridge in the room for cold drinks and the shops and supermarkets are close by. Its nice to take a stroll down the beach for a walk in the evening. Then for visits to Colombo, the bus stops about five minutes away on the main road and the train station also can be reached with a 3-wheeler in a few minutes. Fresh air and a small but nice garden rounds up the description of the place. Too tired? Just take a chair and take a rest. You will soon be joined by a cat and a turtle.
